KOA NEWS SERVICE — The Meadville, Pa., KOA is gearing up for Halloween in September Weekends.
“Generally, the weather is little better in September than in October,” said Meadville Robyn Chilson who owns the Meadville KOA along with her husband, Tim. “We enjoy having our Halloween events a bit earlier than most campgrounds. It seems to allow more families to take part.”
Halloween is a “big deal” at Meadville KOA.
“Kids love trick or treating, parents love the creativity, and it’s just good, family fun,’ Chilson said. “If you’re looking for some family fun this fall, then you’ll want to check out Meadville KOA.”
She said camping families would be wise to reserve their sites for Halloween in September Weekends, because they tend to fill up fast.
Many campers tend to think the Labor Day Weekend marks the end of camping season, but not at Meadville KOA.
The Chilsons remind KOA Value Card Rewards Program campers that they can receive a free night of camping on Sept. 9 when they stay as a paying guest on Sept. 8. The Meadville KOA’s Value Card Rewards Camper Appreciation Weekend is one week earlier than at most KOAs in the international Kampgrounds of America system.
“The Sept. 15-16 weekend interfered with our Pumpkin Fest Weekend, so we’re doing the Value Card Rewards Camper Appreciation Weekend offer a week earlier than most other participating KOA Kampgrounds,” said Tim Chilson. “It gives our VKR kampers a chance to get a free night here, and then another at another participating KOA the next weekend.”
But, Chilson said, campers are certainly welcome to take advantage of both the Meadville KOA Value Card Rewards Camper Appreciation Weekend on Sept. 8-9, and come back the following weekend for Pumpkinfest Weekend.
“Many leave their RV right here, and come back for our Pumpkinfest weekend and then again for our Halloween weekend,” he said.
Sept. 15 & 16 Pumpkinfest Weekend: There will be free crafts with the kids, and free pumpkin treats like pumpkin cake and ice cream. There will also be Campsite Decorating, with prizes including free camping for 1st, 2nd & 3rd winners with best pumpkin and autumn themes. Play Candy Bar BINGO and participate in the after dark candy hunt for the kids. (There is a two-night minimum stay required at the usual summer rate. Leave your RV for free if you’re coming back next weekend).
Sept. 23 & 24 is Halloween Weekend: Compete in the huge costume contest (prizes for all ages), trick or treating for the kids, apple cider, donuts, after dark glowing wagon ride, and a Sunday morning, free all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast with the purchase of your campsite (for 2 adults and 2 children). There will also be a campsite decorating contest, with prizes for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd Day & Night time. Breakfast is just $3 per person for visitor’s and extra camper’s. (There is a two-night minimum stay required at the holiday rate. Leave your RV for free if you’re coming back next weekend, unless you’re using electricity, which is an additional $2 per day).
Chilson said if you don’t own an RV, don’t worry. The campground has Camping Cabins, kitchenette Cabin, and Deluxe lake-front Cabins to rent so your family doesn’t have to miss any of the fun. Come enjoy some autumn camping with your family.
