BILLINGS, Mont. — The Rawlins KOA, owned and operated by Marilyn and Jim Godfrey, is the first KOA campground in Wyoming to become a KOA Journey Campground.
“We feel strongly that positioning our KOA as a KOA Journey will help our guests in setting their expectations prior to their visit,” said owner Marilyn Godfrey. “The fact that we are positioned as an overnight stop for folks on their way to Yellowstone and other tourist areas helps them know we are ‘easy in, easy out,’ and we have all of the basic amenities they need.”
KOA Journey Campgrounds are identified as convenient to major highways, include long pull-through sites and provide a clean, relaxing overnight oasis for travelers, according to a press release from KOA.
The change is the beginning of a new system-wide brand structure for the 51-year-old North American camping company, designed to better identify the specific offerings of its 485 campgrounds for the millions of North American camping families that use KOA each year, says the release.
Over the next few years, KOA campgrounds across North America will be re-branded as either a KOA Journey, a KOA Holiday or a KOA Resort campground.
“We’ve added an off-leash pet area to our park, because campers expect to have a place to let their pets exercise after a long day in the RV, and we have that and they love it,” Godfrey said. She said her KOA receives many positive camper comments concerning its clean restrooms and showers that include full handicapped facilities.
