KOA Approved Vendor Program

KOA Approved Vendor Program

Being a KOA Approved Vendor gives you access to the largest, privately-held campground company in the world. 

An Approved KOA Vendor connects to every KOA campground through our intranet site (eKamp), a listing in our new KOA Vendor Directory, and an invitation to exhibit at our annual KOA Convention & Expo.   To ensure KOA Approved Vendors are fully engaged with KOA campgrounds and their needs, KOA requires an annual $150 Vendor Participation fee.

eKamp

KOA’s intranet site, eKamp, is the single location for all campground owners and managers to reference KOA information in its entirety.  Field Guides, marketing information, KOA.com set-up, educational articles, training videos, and current KOA news are available, as well as the Vendor Directory.  Our electronic directory is a listing of every Approved Vendor, searchable by keywords, category, or business name.  Updated to include even more information, eKamp’s Vendor Directory is a quick, simple way for campgrounds to find a vendor partner for any need.

KOA Vendor Directory

The new KOA Vendor Directory is a hard-copy listing of every Approved Vendor, listed alphabetically.  Along with the company listing, is a category notation, enabling users to find the right vendor quickly.   Printed and mailed in early spring, the KOA Vendor Directory will be referenced throughout the year by owners and managers.  Vendors may purchase a vendor directory for a processing fee of $25.

KOA Convention & Expo

Our 2020 Convention & Expo is KOA’s 58th and will be in Las Vegas, Nevada.  At 2019’s Savannah Convention, KOA had its best campground attendance ever with over 340 campgrounds and more than 800 attendees.  Our vendor Expo in Las Vegas will host over 150 approved KOA vendors with direct access to campgrounds making purchases for their 2021

season.

Please note:  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.
