475 Campgrounds Included in 2010 KOA Directory
Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA), the world’s largest system of open-to-the-public campgrounds, just got a little larger.
For the first time since 2000, KOA will have 475 campgrounds included in its 2010 KOA Directory (shown at left), which will be available at all KOA locations in the United States and Canada beginning March 1, according to a news release.
“We’ve seen a huge amount of interest on the part of independent campground owners in converting their parks to the KOA system in the past two years,” said Mike Gast, vice president of Communications for KOA, and the coordinator of the KOA Directory. “This year’s KOA Directory will have 30 new KOAs listed throughout North America. We’re growing, and we’ve got a lot of beautiful new locations to show to our campers.”
The KOA Directory is free to campers, and is distributed at every KOA campground location. It’s also available by ordering online at www.koa.com/orderadirectory.
The 2010 KOA Directory includes detailed listings of each campground, including the park’s special features, activities and amenities as well as locator maps and specific directions. For the first time, the 2010 Directory also includes a detachable brochure detailing KOA’s lodging opportunities.
“We added more than 250 deluxe lodges with full baths and kitchens to our KOA system in 2009, and we’ll add another 400 in 2010,” Gast said. “We’ve also got more than 4,000 of our simple, affordable Kamping Kabins available, so we truly have KOA kamping any way you want it.”
