too strict & structured for me, I'd rather RELAX!!!

perhaps some are more relaxed than others, but I've spent the weekends in several over the years and it was same story.
I once complained I had no shoes....
Until I met a man with no feet

Why turn away money? lol Is it the school bus frame they turn away? or is it the fear that the RV isn't up to code?

I dont see why you would turn away a paying customer lol

There are a whole lot of campgrounds that won't allow anything older than 10 years. Or dirty RVs. Or if there's peeling paint. Or dents. Or if they don't like the way you smell.

They sure as heck won't allow us nasty Skoolies to mess up their view.

You'll need to try to call ahead at any campground you want to stay at, just in case it's late evening, and the next campground is 100 miles away.

Thank you everyone for the responses!! I will defiantly be busy the next few days checking all of this out...
Want to hear the KOA story! I would see it as a good deal vs regular rent and utilities. But I feel that I am missing something. Lol

If faced with 450 a month, I'd buy property somewhere.

I've never stayed in one, but I've called all the campgrounds in my area for price comparisons. KOA is the most expensive, so I never intended to stay there. I'm really glad for the heads up though. It doesn't sound like my kind of place at all.

Just for fun, I Googled KOA jobs to see if Hosts get to stay for free. Here's the web page (it looks like some kind of crazy-pants cult): Community Camping Programs and Outreach from KOA | Work Kamper Program | KOA Campgrounds

KOA= keep on adding!
We have only stayed in one KOA in Sault ste Marie Ontario, very nice place, owners where very nice and loved our bus, we have gone there a few times for our stop over on the way to Ottawa. Always clean, but yes there are rules and its about $5.00 to $10.00 more then other camp grounds.
