Check in starts at 1:00pm for tents and RV's and 2:00pm for cabins. If you arrive during our office hours, someone will be happy to greet you and get you all set up for your stay. If your arrival time is later than we are open (times vary), please see our night registration box at the front of our office and to the left of our main door. In the box, you will find a site map with your name and site number on it! Don't have a reservation? No problem! Please fill out a night registration slip and put it in the drop box. Choose one of the empty sites listed in the registration box to fit your camper size! 
Please Note: We are often full during the summer, so a reservation is highly encouraged to ensure a spot to accommodate your needs. Please check the list in the night registration before proceeding to any spot, if you do not have a reservation after hours, to ensure you don't accidentally take another late arrival's already registered site.  Please note, any early arrivals will be assessed a $15.00 early check-in fee.

24 Hour Laundry

We offer a 24 hour coin operated laundry space for your needs. It is brightly lit and includes free laundry detergent if needed. We do ask that there aren't any clothing lines set up on campsites, so help accommodate there is a drying rack in the laundry room for your use!

**Our Kamp K9 is temporarily out of service due to damage from the winter. We will have it up and running as soon as possible.

Visitor Policy

We love that you want to share our park with your friends and family! We just ask that your visitors make a quick stop at our office to register their vehicle and get a parking pass. Our office staff will let them know where they can park, as each site is only allowed one vehicle. The cost per day is $5.00 per person and we ask that all guests leave the park by 11pm, as quiet hours will begin at that time. Thank you for following this guideline as it helps us from having to interrupt your visit!

Meet Your Hosts

Harry and Michelle Knutson

"Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt."

Welcome to Jackson!

We are excited that you are here! The Jackson KOA is the perfect place to make great memories, meet new friends, and connect people to the outdoors! 

A little about us, we have four children; two adult daughters and two boys both in school and working at the campground. The Jackson KOA is a Veteran owned park. Harry is a 20-year retired NAVY veteran and Michelle is an ARMY Veteran. We love to travel all over the world and spend as much time as we can scuba diving and sitting by some of the most beautiful oceans. Our love of meeting new people and making new friends is what drives us to make the campground a fun and safe place for all campers. 

Welcome again to our park, we are happy you are here!
