We'll be having the giant soccer game return this weekend as well which was a huge hit with the kids. This is a Leave Your Rig Weekend.
With so many wineries in the area, many people come and stay here and then go take a tour of all the wineries. Well, we wanted to add to the fun by having our very own wine tasting right at the campground. Feel free to visit some of the other wineries during the day and then enjoy some local wine at a tasting back at the KOA at night. We will still be running lots of games and activities for the kids this year! Including bringing the inflatable obstacle course back so please don't think this is an adults only weekend! This is a Leave Your Rig weekend.
This is one of my favourite weekends. It's where we get to reward all of the Value Kard holders with a free night of camping.
