KOA Kampground

July 10, 2004

As we tumbled down the coastal range on the highway from Fort Bragg to Willits, we stumbled upon something that looked like a cross between a carnival and a campground, a KOA that had been carefully and almost insidiously tailored to appeal to kids. If the petting zoo, playground, swimming pool and fishing pond didn't draw you in, then maybe the hayride, ice cream social or hula-hoop & limbo contests would. Picture the parent who could stop in to inquire and then endure the protests from kids in the car if he decided against it. We succumbed, and nearly won the hula-hoop contest.
