KOA News Service (May 6, 2014). The Barrie KOA Holiday Campground, located at 3138 Penetanguishene Road, RR 1 in Barrie, ON, is now open for the 2014 summer camping season.
The Barrie KOA Holiday is one of 485 open-to-the-public KOA campgrounds in the Kampgrounds of America system in the U.S. and Canada.
"We’ve got hundreds and hundreds of great KOA campgrounds throughout North America, and this KOA is a wonderful example of what we offer to our camping guests," said KOA President Pat Hittmeier. "We have campgrounds available for every type of camping and in locations that make camping convenient, no matter where you live or where you’re going."
KOA Holiday is one of three new descriptive brands being added to selected KOAs to aid campers in selecting the right KOA for their camping needs and better meet their expectations.
KOA Holiday campgrounds are wonderful base camps for exploring the area or just a fun place to stay with lots of activities. KOA Holiday parks have amenities and services to make stays memorable, whether it’s a longer stay, or just overnight. Each KOA Holiday features full-service RV sites and KOA Deluxe Cabins with bathrooms.
Other new KOA brands include KOA Journeys, convenient locations after a long day on the road that feature long pull through sites and easy after-hours check in; and KOA Resorts, which include an abundance of activities led by dedicated recreation staff, on-site foot service, group meeting space and much more.
Also, to celebrate 52 years of serving campers, KOA is partnering this summer with Keystone RV Company and Weber Grills to offer two great prize packages through the KOA Take A Spin-To-Win Giveaway. Campers can enter to win one of two drawings.
The initial prize, to be drawn during the Fourth of July weekend, will be a 2014 Keystone Passport 238ML RV and a Weber Grill package.

Campers can pick up a new 2014 Edition of the KOA Directory absolutely free at any KOA campground.
