Cody KOA Celebrates 60th Anniversary

CODY, Wyoming | January 9, 2024 – Recreational Adventures Company (RAC), the largest KOA franchisee, proudly announces the 60th Anniversary of the Cody KOA Campground. Over the past six decades, Cody KOA has evolved into an exceptional destination, offering outstanding amenities and unforgettable experiences for travelers and families.  The Cody KOA holds a special place in the heart of RAC as the very first KOA franchise in the country, founded on June 7, 1964. Acquired in 1995, this iconic campground has become a shining example of RAC's commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.  What sets Cody KOA apart is its commitment to continual investment and improvement. From its early days, Cody KOA has transformed into a destination park in a high-demand area, offering deluxe RV sites (up to 100 ft), deluxe cabins, two swimming pools, activity-driven areas and even gem mining. 

Next summer, the campground will feature Paw Pen Sites, a first in the RAC KOA system, offering private, fenced-in areas for pets as part of the camping experience. Additionally, a pet playground with obstacles, a new facade to the main office building and other upgrades will ensure that Cody KOA remains at the forefront of the outdoor hospitality industry.  Guests can immerse themselves in the local culture with easy access to historic attractions. For those seeking an iconic experience, Cody KOA is proud to offer shuttle bus services to the Cody Rodeo, a true Western tradition. This campground is also fully equipped and ideally located for Prevosts, Airstream, retiree rallies and more, making it a hub for travelers seeking adventure and relaxation.

You never know when you’re going to run into someone famous. This campground has played host to renowned figures like Carli Lloyd of the U.S. women's national soccer team and the popular country band, Lonestar.

As we celebrate this 60th Anniversary, RAC would like to express its gratitude to KOA. They share a close-knit relationship built on mutual dedication to excellence and a "strive for greatness" approach. Their partnership is and always has been a win-win, resulting in the incredible longevity and success of the Cody KOA.  RAC would also like to thank all the guests who have chosen to stay with them over the years, making Cody KOA a true destination.
