And where your cat or dog is concerned, have them bunk with you throughout your stay in our grrreat pet friendly accommodations. That means not having to leave them behind when you go on vacation. You'll find KOA's pet policy on our website, and we're always happy to answer any questions you may have!
Coffee's on! Curb-side service.
Start or finish your day with a cup of gourmet coffee available from our store window. We grind the beans fresh and leave it up to you to choose your favourite flavour. Try the hot chocolate and French Vanilla Cappuccino - you won't be sorry!
The store is well-stocked and items are available for purchase. Let us know how we can help you.
Ready, Set, Camp!
While things may look a little different this summer, we hope that you will join us for some fantastic adventures and family-friendly fun. The Duck hunting quacks on (not the Duck Dynasty type). We will once again be offering up our collectible ducks for some scavenging "fowl play". For your added enjoyment, we have volleyball and basketball, horseshoe pits and gaga ball for use by campers with their own equipment.
Getting Crafty the KOA Way
We will do our best to have some planned activities that take into consideration the safety measures required due to COVID-19. In the mean time be sure to get your activity welcome package when you arrive.
We've got crafts planned for campers of all ages this year—and a great place to make them in. Create a kool souvenir to take home with you, like a colourful tie-dyed tee-shirt or a furry friend at one of our "Me and My Teddy" workshops. Craft projects and prices vary by week and weekend, so be sure to ask about them at our front desk! A fee may apply for some craft events.

HEALING HAPPENS HERE - KOA Care Camps
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 $20 Saturday stay when they stay as paying guests on Friday. The entire $20 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.
