About

Kampgrounds of America is one of the most recognized brands in North America. Since 1962, KOA has been delivering outdoor hospitality to all varieties of campers: from travelers looking for a convenient stop-over to families seeking a fun getaway in the outdoors to retirees enjoying a winter stay in one of our southern destinations.

KOA is the world’s largest system of privately held campgrounds with nearly 500 locations across the US and Canada. You’ll always find clean, level sites, 30 or 50 amp service, Wi-Fi access and a convenient camp store for those forgotten items. Although there are many similarities between campgrounds, each one is unique. Campgrounds range from small and quaint, with less than 100 RV sites, to large resort-style properties with 600 RV sites and group meeting space. We encourage you to take the time to learn about our different campground offerings by reading about our three unique brand positions. 

Since our campgrounds are independently owned and operated, the KOA corporate office does no direct purchasing with suppliers. Our role is to assist our franchisees by cultivating relationships with suppliers who provide superior pricing and service on products needed for their campground operations. A proven KOA track record and KOA references are key attributes to our KOA supplier network. If you do not currently do business with a KOA Campground, we recommend you start by reaching out to campgrounds in your area directly. Our campgrounds are individually owned and operated. They make their own purchases for their campground.

To be considered as a KOA supplier, please complete the KOA supplier form. In most cases, we do require a KOA owner reference due to the amount of inquiries we receive. Once you are an approved supplier, there are a couple ways we can help you reach KOA franchisees.

  • Vendor Listing: A vendor directory is included on our franchisees intranet site.
  • KOA Product Catalog: The KOA Product Catalog is a full-color advertising piece that is direct mailed to operators in the spring.
  • The KOA Expo: The KOA Expo is held mid-November every year with the location changing from a west/mid/east rotation. The 2018 Expo will take place in Fort Worth, TX.

Please note, the corporate office does not offer direct mail or email marketing to reach our franchisees regardless of supplier status. KOA does not offer supplier exclusivity in any category. We believe competition is good for business and our franchisees should be able to shop around to find what suits their individual needs. Use of the KOA logo, image or brand is prohibited on any products or marketing material without consent of Kampgrounds of America, Inc.
