I'm helping my Army son-in-law and daughter move from Ft. Irwin, CA to Reading, PA. We decided to stay at KOA sites along the way. We had two good nights in a row at KOA sites along Rt 40, but when we reached the one just east of Oklahoma City, we had a bad experience with a KOA owner's son. We arrived and the staff there was extremely nice and professional. We explained that we needed a site for tents, but that we also needed to park a 26' moving truck nearby. The staff made some nice arrangements for us and we headed to the site. As we began to turn the truck around to park it in the approved location arranged by the KOA staff, the camp owner's son came driving up in an old BMW 3-series convertible and announced that if we park the truck where his Dad's staff had told us to park, that we would receive a citation by morning. The son acted like a person with a major ego issue combined with a need to feel important (or something). He was rude, didn't explain why multiple staff people would have been wrong, and didn't seem to care that it created a significant inconvenience for us (no where to park the truck except far away). We ended up requesting a refund and staying the night at a Motel 6 about 20 miles east of there. We plan to stay at KOA sites in Tennessee and West Virginia in the next couple of days. I hope we have similar experinces as with the 1st 2 KOA's along the way and not this one.
