Do You KOA?Brief quotes wanted

Do you visit KOA campgrounds as you travel?
I am FMC magazine associate editor Peggy Jordan. I am looking for just a few brief quotes from FMCA members for a story I am writing about KOA's 50th anniversary. Yes, they turned 50 in 2012 - who would think they'd be a year older than FMCA?
The story about KOA's 50th anniversary will appear in the December issue of FMC and I need responses as quickly as possible, as I am writing it now.
Please email me at email@example.com and include
- your name(s)
- FMCA member number,
- and the answer to these questions:
What aspects of KOA campgrounds do you enjoy most?
Do you have a favorite campground memory that took place at a KOA? What is it?
Please send responses to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so very much!

My favorite KOA was before we had an RV. We took 18 Boy Scouts to Camp in Arkansas and on the way back we stopped in Hope Springs so the boys could go to Magic Springs Park. We arrived at the Hot Spring KOA about 8:30 PM and took up two RV spots with our Vans. It was after hours and we didn't have the code to the Showers but a nice gentleman gave us the code and all of boys had a hot shower for the first time in a week. The next morning we went to the office to pay for the site. The office manager asked if we were the scouts that slept on the ground, in the vans and under tarps. When we said yes he said that a lot of the RVers had came to the office saying how well mannered the boys were and how quite they were. If he only knew how tired they were he would have understood. We asked how much we owed for the two sites, he asked if $11.00 would be too much.
That is my favorite KOA story, with the scouts and not in an RV.

KOA ......Simply means KEEP ON ADDING. The only thing good about KOA pricing is it cost less than a Root Canal.
