Campground Review: Twin Mountain KOA, New Hampshire

Campground Review: Twin Mountain KOA, New Hampshire

After spending six nights at the Woodstock/Lincoln KOA in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and thoroughly exploring Franconia Notch, we were just not ready to leave the Granite State.  For every family friendly activity or outdoor adventure that we completed, we heard of three more that we wanted to try. So we did what we have done so often before.  We pulled out the KOA Catalog and looked for a suitable place to spontaneously extend our family vacation.  The Twin Mountain KOA seemed to fit the bill perfectly.  It was less than an hour...

Campground Review: Lincoln/Woodstock KOA (White Mountains, NH)

Campground Review: Lincoln/Woodstock KOA (White Mountains, NH)

Are you looking for the perfect base camp for your next White Mountains adventure?  If so, then look no further than the Lincoln/Woodstock KOA.  We recently spent six nights at this campground and were incredibly impressed by its facilities and activities, and its layout and location.  In short, we pretty much loved every inch of this near-perfect KOA.  Here are some of the highlights: I found myself wandering into the camp store every morning to either browse the shelves, restock our supplies, or pick up maps and information for our...

Celebrating Mom and Supporting KOA’s Care Camps

Celebrating Mom and Supporting KOA’s Care Camps

This article originally appeared in the Jayco Journal. When you own an RV, planning your next family adventure is always part of the fun.  But should you go somewhere new or return to a place that you love? Our family has camped in eight different states, and we hope to travel to all fifty.  So whenever we hit the road with our White Hawk, we usually prefer exploring new destinations. However, there are certain campgrounds that call us back again and again.  The Philadelphia/West Chester KOA is one of those special places.  It is the home of... Read More

How We Roll When a Campground Rocks! (Myrtle Beach KOA)

How We Roll When a Campground Rocks! (Myrtle Beach KOA)

When we pulled into the Myrtle Beach KOA and saw families lounging by the pool and kids romping through the spray ground my son Max asked, “can we always come back here?”  Both of the boys were still buckled up in their car seats but they knew that this campground was going to be special–and they were so right. We had just pulled in, but it was quickly becoming apparent that we had discovered one of our new favorite places on planet earth.  We had also finally put the long, cold New Jersey winter somewhere far, far behind...

Season Opener: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

It’s pretty bad around here, folks. Our boys are so desperate for the road that they are building ‘campgrounds’ out of their Megablocks and Spinaroos. Jeremy took the camper down to the dealership for a bit of a freshening up this weekend, and something about the act of hitching up and pulling out gets Max and Theo all amped up for our first spring trip. Lucky for them (and us!) we are just weeks away from our season opener. We have always headed south in the spring, but never quite far enough to really shake off the chill... Read More

Coffee Table Mojo: KOA and the Art of Kamping

Coffee Table Mojo: KOA and the Art of Kamping

KOA And The Art of Kamping It’s only early December but I miss camping season already.  I love the holidays as much as the next dad–but I love getting out in our RV even more.  Our family has spent over a hundred nights camping during the past four years and most of those nights have been spent at KOA campgrounds.  Stephanie calls me a “KOA Fanboy,” and its true.  I like their friendly cancellation policy and their kid friendly activities and amenities.  But what I have really loved the most about the KOA campgrounds...

The Last Great Hayride: Allentown KOA, Pennsylvania

The Last Great Hayride: Allentown KOA, Pennsylvania

We had another lovely stay at the Allentown KOA last weekend.  It served as a convenient base camp for exploring the gently rolling hills and picture perfect farms of the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania.  The campground itself is deeply wooded and tucked away, far from traffic. A gentle stream also meanders through the property and many of the sites rest directly on its banks.  We were travelling with our good friends again and we had booked “buddy sites” so our campers could face each other, creating a large common area in...
