Not the outdoorsy type? The excitement and award-winning shows of Branson are minutes away. On the campground, RVers will appreciate the paved roads and large, level Pull-Thru sites that provide plenty of room for even the largest rigs. If you’re a tenter, try out a Deluxe Tent site that offers water, electric, and plenty of room for enjoying time with family around the campfire. You’ll also find an on-site laundry, a well-stocked camp store, and a propane station. The recreation room, covered porches and covered, lighted, pavilion are the perfect setting for family and group activities.


Moore Haven KOA is located near Florida’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Okeechobee. Home to some of the best bass fishing in America, this campground is a must-visit spot for fishermen. They even have room to store your boat! If saltwater is more your thing, take a day trip to one of Florida’s many beaches. Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and the Gulf Coast a just a short drive away. Of course, there’s a lot of fun to be had right at the campground too – enjoy a game of petanque, relax in the heated pool, or kick back at your comfortable site complete with patio furniture. You’ll be living life in the Florida sunshine at this KOA.


Looking for a spot on your way to or from Canada? Houlton / Canadian Border KOA, the closest KOA to the Maine-Canada border, is definitely where you want to set up camp. Pull up in your RV or try a more unique way to stay by resting your head in a fully-furnished Glamping Tent with an array of creature comforts.  This cozy campground also features scenic walking trails, fun activity areas and planned events. If you’re looking to get off the campground, Houlton, also known as “The County” has lots to offer. Take a stroll at Riverfront Park or catch a show at Temple Theatre. If you’re looking for a fun gift – or just like to shop – you’ll definitely want to make a stop at nearby Amish general store The Pioneer Place. So stop on in and give this new KOA a try.
