KOA Campgrounds offer a range of hookups for RV camping, including:
Full hookups: Full hookups let you directly connect your RV to water, electricity and sewer, allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors without giving up any of the basic conveniences of home. The steady supply of water comes in handy when bathing and cooking, and the sewer hookups let you easily dispose of your black and gray water without having to dump the tank at the end of your stay. The electrical hookups provides sufficient electricity to power all of the devices in your RV, including the heating and air conditioning system. KOA offers both 30- and 50-amp service, letting you choose the best fit for your RV power requirements.
Water/electric hookups: Also, known as "partial hookups," hookups that offer only water and electricity are often a great choice for smaller RVs and pop-up campers.
Dry hookups: These hookups offer a power source for your camper, but no water or sewer hookup. If you pick a campsite with a dry hookup, don't worry — all KOA locations offer clean bathrooms with hot showers and fresh water.
STEP 1: CONNECT THE WATER
Unwind your hose and connect it first to your RV and then to the tap or spigot. Turn on the water and check for leaks at either end. Having a water pressure regulator is recommended since water pressure can vary by campground. Having a water filtration system is also recommended for removing contaminants, like calcium, which can damage plumbing, fixtures and heaters.
STEP 2: CONNECT THE SEWER HOSE TO THE SITE AND THEN TO YOUR RV
Most people flush their black tanks on an as-needed basis while leaving the gray tank valve on. Black tanks should never be more than 75% full or left open. Make sure you have the proper sanitary equipment recommended for disconnecting.
STEP 3: CONNECT TO ELECTRIC LAST
Make sure the electric campsite receptacle matches the amperage requirements of your rig (normally 30 or 50 amp), then unwind the cord and plug it in. Many RV hookup boxes require you to flip a regulator breaker switch to turn power on and off. Electrical adapters may be needed.
RV campsites also come in a number of styles:
Regardless of the type you pick, you'll appreciate how level the sites are at KOA campgrounds. A level site not only provides your camper with more stability, but it may also be necessary for your appliances to operate properly. Sure, you could use ramps or leveling blocks—but if your site is level to begin with that's one less step you have to go through before you can begin enjoying your RV camping adventure.
Concerned about the length of your rig? Motorhomes range from 17 to 40 feet. Fifth wheels and travel trailers range from 10 to 45 feet. Measure your camper to ensure you reserve a site that fits, and don't forget about slideouts and ramps that increase the total length. KOA RV Sites are made to accommodate a wide range of camper lengths, but it's still best to double check during booking. KOA.com's reservation form takes your RV's length into account when showing compatible sites, so as long as your length is accurate you'll only see sites that will be a good fit!How to plan your RV camping trip
