7 KOAs Perfect for Your Next National Park Glamping Adventure

Camping is a popular way to escape city life and get close to nature, but glamping has shown you don’t have to hike into the mountains to experience the great outdoors. If you’re looking into glamping, you’re not the only one, as four out of ten campers showed an interest in 2023. 

These campgrounds offer amenities beyond your typical camping adventure — from dedicated dog parks and cabins to hot tub facilities. So instead of putting your travel budget into a hotel close to a national park, consider booking a spot at a KOA near these stunning destinations.
