KOA Kampgrounds  On this website, these sites are listed in the appropriate section under “Where to Stay.”  An inexpensive Kamping Kabin is a great option if you don’t own a tent but long for an outdoors camping vacation.  These rustic one-room cabins provide all the fun and excitement of camping out with all the security and comfort of sleeping in.  Each sleeps four and is equipped with a double bed plus kid-pleasing bunk beds.  A two-room cabin sleeps six.  Campers need bring only sleeping bags and cooking gear.  Some locations also have Kamping Kottages equipped kitchenette and bathroom.  Tents and RVs are, of course, welcome here.  Most of the campgrounds in the KOA chain have swimming pools, and some offer additional recreational facilities.  To get a free KOA Directory, visit the website.
