I think it’s interesting that KOA now classifies their RV Parks into three different categories. The categories are the KOA Journey, the KOA Adventures Begins, and the KOA Destination. While traveling I do use KOA’s but I think the categories should be, overpriced, even more overpriced, and outrageously overpriced.
We recently stayed at a KOA Journey in Stanton MO and paid $40 a night with our KOA Value Kard. We stayed there to tour the major caves in that area and check out the tourist attractions. The 4 major caves in the area are great but I’m getting too old and fat for Fisher Cave in Meramec State Park. That cave has a 100 foot section called the “duck walk” because the ceiling is only 50 inches high. Oh my aching back.
Like most KOA’s, the sites at this one were very close together. This was a small RV park with a total of 30 RV sites, 16 full hookups and 14 water/electric only. The 14 water/electric sites were in rough condition with a lot of slope and the owners put small RV’s in those sites. The pool was nice and very clean but the “clubhouse” was being used for storage. No cable TV here but you could get all the St. Louis TV stations over-the-air. Here are some pics of the Stanton KOA.

The Fishing Pond...yes, really.
