KOA Choice Hospitality in the South by Bonnie and Bill Neely

Bristol/Kingsport, Tennessee, KOA


Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, this is one of the most unique and complete KOA Campgrounds we have discovered yet. It is a beautiful, hilly setting, yet the campsites are flat and well maintained. Your furry friends, who love camping with you, are delighted to find a wonderful, shaded K-9 Kamp in which to run while you sit,watch,and relax. The friendly, welcoming owners of this KOA will even walk your dog, if it is necessary for you to be away for all day. Additionally, this is one of only a few KOA’s that have well-equipped paddocks with low voltage fences for horses en transit.
The children’s playground has so very much fun to offer for all ages. Even Mom and Dad can jump on the huge bounce mat, play beanbag games and much more, while little ones enjoy the large sandbox and good playground equipment. This KOA not only has a store with almost anything you could need but also has an inviting KOA Cafe with many selections. They will even deliver these delicious menu choices to your rig if you are too tired to go there. Bathrooms, laundry, etc. are KOA clean, as you know to expect, and handicap facilities are good.
You can have fun panning for fossils and gemstones in the long miner’s trough at the office. This is a perfect KOA for your summer vacation, even if you live only a few miles away! Be sure to reserve ahead.



Nashville, Tennessee, KOA

Nashville, TN, is Music City USA and KOA there on Music Valley Drive, with the Grand Ole Opry about a mile away, is no exception. It is perfectly located for your entire visit to this energetic city, for whatever reason. This KOA is out of the extreme traffic yet conveniently located to get almost anywhere within a half hour. There are some fun and nostalgic country music night concerts right at the KOA Theater several times each week. The whole family will love these nominally priced professional, foot stomping, hand clapping terrific concerts, and tired drivers don’t have to get back behind the wheel to go anywhere.
This KOA is one of the largest and is so well kept, with a huge swimming pool and lots of grassy, shady places and lots of playground equipment, and level, shaded campsites. The spacious store has nearly everything you could need, a very nice laundry, and clean bathrooms. On many days in peak seasons there is breakfast and supper available at the KOA. We love our frequent stays here!

KOA Fredericksburg, VA

This KOA is about six miles off I-95 corridor and about an hour from either Richmond, VA, or Washington, DC, so it is very well located and very near the large Lake Anna where fishing and boating abound. The campground is in a beautiful, densely forested valley with giant hardwood trees lending their cooling shade to campers year-round. There is a very nice on-site lake for campers to enjoy paddle boats,catch-and-release fishing, and chasing the regal looking Canada geese in summer. And little explorers will want to investigate the small stream at the back of the campground, (careful of snakes!) Of course there is a clean KOA swimming pool, but smaller than many.
The camping sites are level, but this is an older KOA and the roads and camper parking pads need resurfacing after several years of so much rain. The KOA store has a few supplies of food necessities, but it is better to arrive with most of your groceries. This KOA was awarded the Founders’ Award in2013 for the cleanest restrooms, which are of latest design, adjacent to the registration.
