Plan ahead for our "Spooktacular Weekends" October 2014
See why everyone makes plans early. We have been doing this for years and it just keeps getting better. We have trick or treating ( for the young ones and the older ones), the amazing haunted forest, site decorating contests, costume decorating contests (including pets), and much more. Join us for all the fun KOA directed activities (Tie-Dye T-shirts,egg toss, mini marshmallow shooter shooting gallery, etc.) Please note we have added a second weekend this year (2014), so we can share the good times even more. Weekend dates are October 17th & 18th and October 24th & 25th 2014. See some of the fun in the videos tab on our website.
Do you know its illegal to transport firewood?
Going camping? Choosing a campsite or campground?
Or picking a place to park your camper? Its the perfect vacation getaway. Pulling up to a beautiful campsite, enjoying nature, the woods or forest, in a state or national park. And you might be thinking about bringing firewood along from home. But dont! Bringing firewood from home to the place youre camping could put your favorite campsite or park in danger.
How far is too far to move firewood? And what do you mean by "local" firewood?
When we say local firewood, we are referring to the closest convenient source of wood that you can find. That might be from down the street, or a state forest in your county. As a very general rule of thumb, 50 miles is too far, and 10 miles or less is best. In many states there are rules, regulations, and quarantines that clearly state how far is too far. Some states have laws about crossing their state line with firewood, and the fines can be hefty.
After hours check-ins
Many folks will arrive after normal business hours, therefore if you show up and the office is closed proceed to the night registration box ( just to the left of the front door). If you have an existing RV or tent reservation your map ( with your name on it ) will be located at the night registration box. If you have an existing cabin reservation your map ( with your name on it and a key ) will be located at the night registration box. If you don't have a existing reservation, read the directions located at the night registration on how to find an available RV or tent sites in the campground. Cabins are not available after normal business hours. Call campground for normal business hours.
