KOA – What’s Behind the Yellow Sign!

For more than 50 years, Kampgrounds of America (KOA), the world’s largest system of open-to-the-public family campgrounds, has provided millions of campers with fun, memorable adventures.

KOA was born in 1962 when founder Dave Drum constructed a campground on the banks of the Yellowstone River in Billings, Mont. Since then, KOA has grown to more than 480 locations in the U.S. and Canada. KOA’s family of properties offers diverse camping experiences, while maintaining the excellent standards and family-friendly atmosphere the company is known for.
