Go Kamping at KOA!

I see that KOA, America’s industrial camping business, is offering a free night at participating KOA campgrounds.

“Campers who stay as paying guests on Friday, May 9 will receive a free night of camping on Saturday, May 10,” the spam says. “The 11th Annual KOA Care Camps Big Weekend event is the official start to the 2014 summer camping season.”

According to KOA’s website, the forlorn Stockton KOA on Eight Mile Road, where I camped for a column in 2003, is not one of the participants. But the better located and definitely livlier “Stockton Delta KOA”  out at Tower Park Marina is.

If you want to mob up in a tent city and drink beer in lawn chairs while your kids splash in a pool, this deal is for you.
