Just recently stayed at Eastern Slope CG in North Conway, NH. It cost over $70 per night. This included an extra charge for each additional adult (2) and each dog (2). The CG was just OK but had good access to the Saco river. Not sure of the reasoning for additional charges other than gouging.

Maybe I've never really paid any attention (we don't have pets) but I've never heard of a campground charging extra for dogs. Ridiculous.

I've run across a couple with extra charges for dogs. Eastern Slope CG rates were $45.99 plus $2.00 per dog and $5.00 for each additional adult over 18. It's not like they have to feed them. Not sure why the extra charges either.

There are a few KOAs that we would stay at. It seems they are mostly the "parking lot" types. And we usually use these for their convenience to our needs. As stated in an earlier post, the "mom and pop" are normal your choice, they may not be as updated but if the place is clean and the staff friendly, that counts for a lot.

Earlier this year we stayed in the Billings MT KOA and it was exceptional. Paved level sites with full hook ups, fire pit, swing, covered table and grass. Not cheap by any means but at least you could see where your money was going. That happens to be the very first KOA. That seems to be an exception as the other KOA's I've stayed in are pail in comparison.

We stayed at the KOA in Fort Collins, Co. this summer and it was excellent. I would highly recommend staying there.

There are lots of nice KOA's. But there are some that need investment. I just make sure I read the reviews. There is one right when you go into Colorado on i70 I stayed at this summer. The campsites were just dirt and a little rock.

But the staff was very friendly and I had a great breakfast there. I would stay again on the way out west for sure.
