We discovered KOAs on an overnight stop in Fort Collins, Colorado. The Lakeside KOA was an amazing campround with mini golf, paddle boats on the lake, a fitness walk around the water, a chuck wagon and more. We arrived late, and because they didn’t have room for us to stay another day, we had to leave to before we could check out all the amenities. But it got us hooked on KOAs.
We would have stayed at the KOA in Cheyenne, Wyoming, but they were booked – along with every other campground in the city – because of Frontier Days. About an hour away from Cheyenne, Laramie was a good second choice.
There were tent areas, cabins and plenty of pull-through spots, each with a small patch of lawn and a picnic table. One of the delights of RVing in the nice weather is eating outside. One day, I served mixed berry shortcake for breakfast out on the picnic table under the awning. Another day, we had our friends Herb and Dee over for pizza and beer.
The coolest thing about the KOA in Laramie was the agility course in the dog run. With lots of treats and persistence, we were able to get both Meeko and Sadie to each do one of the obstacles. Fun!
