BANDO'S PIZZA @ Barrie KOA.
Made from scratch using only the freshest ingredients, our campers clamour for our delicious stone-baked pizza, popular panzerotti, and amazing garlic fingers. It's located right on our campground and we even deliver right to your site. For dessert, try our mmmm good S'mores Pizza, with rich chocolate pieces, graham crumble and marshmallow gooey goodness. 705-739-1900.
And right next door to BANDO'S, the KOA store is home to some of the best ice cream in Barrie. Choose a single scoop for the little campers or go for the gusto and get a large for yourself. Not an ice cream fan? That's okay - we've got lots of exceptional novelty desserts, too. Open May - August.

We had our first E-Waste fundraising event in 2012 for KOA Care Camps. Electronic waste (essentially anything you plug in), has since been collected and the "GREEN" is put towards helping children with cancer to attend summer camp. Helping children, helping the environment. We plan to continue this program, so start saving those items, bring them to Barrie KOA and donate them to a good cause. NO large appliances please (i.e. NO fridges, freezers, A/C, stoves, car batteries).
Thank you KOA for presenting Barrie KOA with the "Kamp Green" award in November 2013 for outstanding participation. Innovative programs such as this are often derived from very dedicated campers such as the ones we know in Al and Sue. We are thankful for their inspiration and participation and the many campers who support this endeavour all year long.

At Barrie KOA, we're proud to get involved with KOA Care Camps, a non-profit charity that supported over 100 specialized children's cancer camps in several States and Provinces. At these camps, kids with cancer experience the fun of summer camp while still having access to the treatment they need. Working together, KOA owners, the KOA home office, our partners and KOA campers raise funds for this single cause, and we thank you for assisting us in giving smiles back to so many awesome kids. Each Spring we host KOA Care Camps Big Weekend. The event serves as the official kickoff to the summer camping season, with families flocking to Barrie KOA to take advantage of a $10 Saturday stay when they stay as paying guests on Friday. The entire $10 fee for Saturday camping is provided to the KOA Care Camp trust to disperse amongst the camps.Until cancer is a memory, KOA Care Camps will continue to help these great kids heal and make joyful memories of their own.
