From the bloggers at Kampgrounds of America:
If you’re an animal lover — and who isn’t — this will make you smile. Pet campers at KOA have included a horse, wolf, well-behaved pigs (both pot-bellied and slightly slimmer), the kind of monkey that sits on your shoulder, a parrot, cockatiel and, I’m not kidding, a lion and Bengal tiger.
Then there are the dogs, cats and assorted four-legged creatures that are cherished members of the families who own and manage campgrounds. It’s a fact that these beloved pets and their people get to live a remarkable KOA lifestyle: meeting and greeting visitors, romping around in Kamp K9 play areas and enjoying nature in general. It’s a good, outdoorsy life the rest of us have been waiting all winter to embrace.
For frequent travelers like me with family and pets in tow on the road, KOA can feel like a welcoming animal kingdom where campers, both furry and not, co-exist. None of these lovable animals, large or small, were available for interviews when I got the idea to write about the world of pet camping at KOA. Except for Roxy Hart. She’s our adventurous, outspoken Tibetan terrier who has been road tripping with my husband, daughter and me since she was a puppy.
