Do you KOA?
If you don’t, you should consider it. Camping is in my opinion the best way to vacation on a budget. We have camped in tents, cabins, and recently in our new Caboose Camper. We have been to several KOA Kampgrounds and love them all. Every KOA we have visited has been fantastic. There are always plenty of bathhouses which are always very clean. If you are worried about the kids getting bored while camping, then KOA is definitely the campground for you. There are always plenty of activities for the kids including playgrounds, pools, jump pillows and planned activities led by the KOA staff.
KOA Camping in Williamsburg
I would highly recommend the Williamsburg KOA, especially if you are planning a trip to Williamsburg. This KOA is a short drive from Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, and many other Williamsburg attractions.We were heading to Busch Gardens Christmas Town and since we knew it was going to be a late night we wanted to spend the night close by so we could hustle the kids back to the camper and get them to bed. We were so happy we found this KOA. The staff was kind, courteous, and very helpful. One of the best parts of camping is meeting new people and we loved chatting with other campers and also the folks in the yellow shirts (aka KOA employees). The staff was very knowledgeable.
The first question my kids always ask is “Do they have a pool?” Which is quickly followed by “Do they have a jumping pillow?” The kids were not disappointed as the Williamsburg KOA has both. But since we were camping in November we did not get to enjoy the pool at this KOA although the sight of the splash pad has made us decide to come back in the summertime. We did however enjoy the jumping pillow. My kids could play for hours on it. It is also a great place to meet other kids and make “camping friends”.
There is also a fantastic camp store. My kids always enjoy finding new treasures at campground stores. This KOA had plenty of treasures that didn’t break the bank. We also found much needed camping supplies and even a few little things that we forgot to pack. In the warmer months, you can buy buckets of dirt and pan for gems and fossils. Kids love to play in dirt and this is a great activity. We will be adding this to our list of reasons to visit the Williamsburg KOA again in the summertime! Take a look at all the available activities at their website and start planning your camping trip today. For us, we will be heading back sometime between May and August so we can participate in the activities led by the SummerShiners!
Follow That Caboose!
This was also our first time taking our caboose camper anywhere. The Caboose Camper is a one of a kind home built camper. We had a great time at the Williamsburg KOA in our Caboose Camper! We met some fellow campers who wanted to take a peek inside. The inside is just as awesome as the outside so of course we let them take a look. Our kids loved to say “We are staying in the big red caboose!” The caboose has been winterized and parked for the year but check back in the Spring as we will be taking the caboose on many new adventures.
