Winthrop KOA Campground

KOA campgrounds are offering a FREE night’s stay coming Saturday night, May 10th when you pay for a night’s stay on Friday night, May 9th.  So, stay as a paying guest on Friday night & you’ll get a FREE night of camping on Sat 5/14. It’s a great way to check out a new campground at a discounted price, and support a good cause, as this is a fundraising even to support kids with cancer. This applies to campsites, cabins & lodge rooms, although the cabins & lodge rooms may be booked faster, so you’ll want to reserve right away.

Find a participating KOA campground location.  There are a number of participating campgrounds in the Northwest, as well as around the country.

“Now in its 11th year, funds raised during this weekend help send children with cancer to KOA Care Camps across North America. These 56 specialized, medically equipped facilities offer a true summer camp experience to children undergoing treatment or recovering from cancer. The KOA Care Camps Trust distributes $500,000 annually to these camps to help send children to the summer camps of their dreams.”

We do have this review of the Winthrop KOA if you want more info on that location!

I have heard some good things about some of the local KOA campground (like ones with fun bouncy things for kids and more). What are your thoughts on camping at a KOA park? Where is your favorite KOA location to camp at?

Thanks Susan!


  1. LOVE KOA! :) Check out the Albany/Corvallis KOA…they have a swimming pool (if we could get any sun here in the PacNW) and an amazing nature trail to walk on that runs by the Calapooia river! Great location too! (and great prices- I’m not one for roughing it too much but like the idea of camping….KOA is a great option for anyone like me!)
    …and you still get your smores!

  2. Jen – I haven’t tried them recently. I stick to the Wasington and Oregon State parks, and the campgrounds at the federal sites. However, I do know that they sometimes have pools / hot tubs and other amenities that are very appealing! Thanks for posting this…I have a KOA directory that is filed away and so I’d forgotten!

    PS – Anyone who wants a KOA directory can request one on their website, or go green and download it…..

  3. The best KOA Kampground can be found in Lynden, Washington in Whatcom County. In the summer there are many family activities, including paddleboats on a nice pond, swimming in the pool, and bingo on the lawn. They also have fun dances in the evening with music for young and old alike. My kids still remember the fun times we had there. I highly recommend it.

  4. We Love KOA’s! My family and I are taking part in this promo this weekend at the Winthrop KOA! We got a couple of cabins and saved a ton of $$ with the free night!

    The best one in the state by far is the Leavenworth KOA though, its a little spendy but cheaper than staying in town and they have a heated pool, huge playground, access to the river, and a game room, its like kid-heaven! Plus they have a free shuttle into town so we don’t ever have to worry about parking, an on-site espresso stand and breakfasts on the weekend! It’s awesome!

  5. We’ve stayed at the Port Angeles/Sequim KOA 3 times now. It’s awesome! You can get a cabin (one or two rooms) Very clean! Pool, hot tub, firepits, picnic table at each cabin area, tetherball, horseshoes. real bathrooms (a must for me!), showers, outlets for hair dryers, etc. Oh ya, you can camp in a tent too, if you don’t have kids :)
    Movie nights, bike rentals, big room with pool table and foosball + craft materials and a large table. As long as we live here we’ll continue to go back.
