KOA Camp Stores

KOA Camp Stores             

Every campground has a general store, called a camp store.  These stores are to support camper needs from household basics to limited food.  KOA does not have a standardized item selection and stock is determined by the individual campground. 

KOA Camp Store Information:

  • May have a limited season so do not stock merchandise throughout the year
  • May do a majority of their purchasing at KOA’s annual Expo or during the winter months
  • Do not have overstock areas and are interested in minimum order quantities
  • KOA Corporate does not have any distribution channels
  • Each campground owner is responsible for its own camp store management
  • Most camp stores are also the registration area and space may be limited
  • We recommend all merchandise arrives with a UPC
  • Camp stores are allowed to sell merchandise with a KOA logo and campground name drop
    • Campground’s own their name and are able to include it as part of any design without corporate office approval.  Example “Sugarloaf Key / Key West KOA Holiday”
  • All vendors intending to use the KOA logo must complete a trademark license agreement and pay the logo use fee.
    • The KOA “teepee” logo is owned by Kampgrounds of America, Inc.  KOA campgrounds cannot authorize the use of the KOA logo in any design for print or digital media.  Approval must be done through KOA corporate office.  Additional information about KOA logo use may be requested.
