Why KOA Rewards is a Must for Campers & RVers

May 7, 2023

And who doesn’t love saving when it is really easy to do?

There are some painful ways to save money — by cutting out your daily caffeine boost from your favorite cafe, or by cutting back on your travels. However, those things are far from easy, and at KOA we are all about ease and comfort.

That’s why we are here to tell you that you can save money without giving up your regular peppermint mocha, and also that you can save money by actually traveling and camping more.


Yes, you heard that right — the more you travel and camp, the more money you’re going to save.

Now comes the “how?” — here’s how you can do it.

The Value of Camping & Saving with KOA

Here at KOA we strongly believe that the memories made while camping are some of the most valuable memories you’ll ever make.

For over 50 years (and counting), KOA campgrounds across North America have served as places for family and friends to come together and create memories.

By enjoying the beauty of the outdoors together on a hike, sharing stories over a campfire, bonding over a board game in your RV, or one of the other countless activities you can enjoy while camping, you are strengthening bonds with your loved ones.

And what’s more valuable in life than that? We certainly can’t think of anything.

Ways to Camp With KOA

In addition to the memory-making that KOA campgrounds facilitate, we also offer a number of different ways for you to experience the times you’ll remember forever.

From the minimal tent camper to the souped-up RVer, there is a wide variety of ways to enjoy your camping.

And the best part about all of these ways to stay at KOA is that with a KOA Rewards, you’ll save 10% off daily registration rates year-round.
