Top Things to do at Canton KOA in March
Canton KOA believes in creating a fun, family-friendly environment for all, whether you are visiting us for the weekend, or part of our local Canton community. That’s why our team has been working hard to fill up our event calendar with exciting opportunities to create fun memories with family and friends. Keep reading to find out what’s happening at Canton KOA during the months of February & March! (Yes, we snuck in a half month of events in February, but they are worth it, promise!)
We may be half-way through February, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had this month! Let’s start with Spring Cleaning. You’re probably thinking, “well that doesn’t sound very fun!” But we beg to differ. If you’re like us, you may already be in cleaning mode, especially after the holidays. Nothing makes us happier than starting off fresh and clutter-free in the new year! If you have items just taking up space that you’ve been meaning to get rid of, why not join us for a community yard sale (this is where the fun comes in)!
Canton KOA at the Silver Spur Resort is opening up it’s property to anyone who wants to join us for a HUGE yard sale. We’ve got the space if you’ve got stuff to sell! Not only do yard sales give you the opportunity to collect cash for things you don’t need anymore, but they are also so much fun when you’re amongst friends! Or bring the whole family, and stop by just to shop. You never know what treasures you will find! Stop by and say “hi” to our friendly staff!
Our community yard sale will take place on February 21st & 22nd, rain or shine, and we’ll even do the advertising! It’s only $20 a spot for both days, and you must call us to reserve your space.
Family Game Night
We love making new memories with family and friends, and setting aside time each week to spend with our loved ones is important to us. That’s why we have added Family Game Nights to our calendar of events! We’re all about sharing laughs and having a great time here at Canton KOA. If you like game nights as much as we do, bring the whole family to the Q & Brew every Sunday from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. We’ll switch it up each week, from trivia nights to charades, family feud to classic card games and more so you’ll never get bored. How does a minute to win it competition sound? Or maybe dominoes is more your style? Our team has tons of fun ideas to keep your whole family entertained!
Game nights start February 23rd and run weekly on Sundays from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the Q & Brew. This is a FREE event and a limited menu & drinks will be available for purchase during game time.
Live music returns to the Q & Brew, and we have a great lineup of local talent planned! Our live music nights will run weekly on Thursdays from 6:00-8:00 pm, starting February 27th. We’ll mix it up depending on the weather so you may enjoy a nice evening inside the Q & Brew with dinner and music one night, or take it outside if the weather is nice! Stay tuned as we plan more nights with great music…this is only the beginning of events to come!
It’s hard to believe March is next month already. It feels like New Years was just yesterday, and now we are planning Spring Break! We are ready though. Nothing makes us happier than a resort full of happy campers, and we are excited to welcome spring travelers to Silver Spur/Canton KOA! To get ready for an active month, we have added even more activities to our event calendar, for both kids and adults to enjoy. In addition to our weekly family game nights and live music at the Q & Brew, we hope you will enjoy these new and unique experiences.

Kid love to fish in our two stocked ponds here on the resort. It’s one of the most popular activities for resort guests of all ages!
