When you buy an RV park, standards are central to the design and development process. The KOA design team will provide any additional information needed to ensure the campground meets KOA standards.

Factors to Consider During the Design and Layout Process
There is a wide variety of reasons why campers choose KOA for camping. An inclusive KOA Campground must consider the needs of current and future visitors. By better understanding the needs of all campers, KOA can create spaces to provide an array of camping opportunities. When looking over RV park design ideas, the team will consider some of the following questions as they make their design plans:
- What kind of camping is the most popular?
- How long will campers stay?
- What services do campers need?
- What is the socio-economic status of visitors?
- How can the campground be more welcoming for diverse visitors?
- What is the campground’s current use, and how does it differ from its intended use?
One of the main goals of KOA’s design process is to make camping more accessible for all campers. To uphold this mission, the KOA design team will work with you to create a design promoting accessibility and inclusivity. Some of the accessibility design features in your campground can include ramps into Camping Cabins and other buildings for easy access. You can also use features such as flexible recreation spaces to create a more inclusive campground that accommodates a wide range of visitor preferences and abilities.
