So what do you do if you still really want to have the camping experience, but you don't want to do away with all the comforts of home? One way to experience the outdoors with your infant yet still have access to a lot of amenities is by going to a Kampgrounds of America (KOA) location. They have campsites throughout the United States and Canada.
You can bring a tent if you prefer. But you also have the option to hook up an RV, or rent a cabin, lodge, or cottage. KOA calls their lodges "Kabins." They're basic one to two room structures with windows, doors, and a porch. You bring your own sleeping bag, cooking equipment, gear, and you're all set. Lodges follow the same concept. But you also get the benefit of your own shower, toilet, and kitchen, as well as a separate bedroom. Spelled with a “k”, the Kottages are supped up versions of the basic cabin. Bathrooms and even kitchens come with some versions of KOA Kottages.
For those who truly cannot be apart from the World Wide Web, a number of KOA campsites offer Internet access. But if you can bear to tear yourself away from the computer screen, you'll also be pleased to know that you can find some sites with swimming pools and miniature golf as well.
