Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) facilities were named the No. 1 bargain travel destination in the January/February 2001 edition of Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel Guide.

However, a main reason why the campground franchise operation received the destination was because you do not need an RV to stay at a KOA location.

The article pointed out that KOA also provides “Kamping Kabins” for guests without RVs.
