Summer camping numbers continue to climb at KOA

BILLINGS, Mont. — More campers than ever before are visiting Kampgrounds of America parks this summer.

Between May 1 and July 15, KOA saw an increase of more than 7 percent in camper registrations, compared to the same period in 2009. That news comes on the heels of a record Fourth of July weekend, which saw an 8 percent growth in camper registrations compared to 2009. In fact, Friday, July 2 was the highest volume of camper registrations in Kampgrounds of America’s 48-year history.

The growth trend isn’t showing any signs of slowing. KOA advanced reservations through the end of September show an 11 percent growth over the same period in 2009.

“Our campground owners have done a wonderful job taking care of the needs of our campers, as well as investing in their facilities to give campers more options when it comes to food, entertainment and accommodations,” said KOA President Pat Hittmeier. “We’ve been around a long time, but new campers are still discovering that a stay at KOA is a fun, affordable family vacation option.”

There are also now more than 1,200 full-service Lodge accommodations in the KOA system. KOA Lodges come complete with full bathrooms, showers and kitchens. KOA Lodges are bringing camping to a new type of guest that may not have considered camping before.

With more than 475 locations throughout North America, more campers are also discovering they don’t have to go far to enjoy KOA camping.
