Home of the Jackalope! Douglas, Wyoming that is. They claim the original “discovery” of the Jackalope and everyone else just followed suit. There is a Jackalope silhouette outside of town on a hill, there are Jackalope lick Nessie’s throughout town and there is a Jackalope Square that has Farmers Market on Saturday’s that has a huge statute of said Jackalope.
The KOA is a larger one and more so like a parking lot then anything else. The staff were awesome! Very friendly and informative.
A few things of note, the trash receptacles are placed throughout the campground which is nice. The dog park is a bigger one and there were actually locations for horses.
Not much shade AT ALL, and the wind whip’s through a lot. I was informed though that’s a Wyoming thing anyway. Miniature golf, swimming pool and camp kitchen as expected. The WIFI , I’m sorry to say, sucks and is not private. I’ve noticed in my travels though that NONE of the KOA’s have very good WIFI. I was fortunate and got an end site, near the office/shower (clean w/short shower heads and counters)and I had shade. A few days before I arrived in early September it had already snowed and the temperature had dropped into the 20’s. It was in the 50’s my first day and is a comfortable 75 today with a lite breeze. Douglas has some interesting history and historical sites nearby so it’s worth a visit if your exploring the old west or just driving through. Make sure you keep your gas above 1/2, the highways are a long way between gas stations and the speed limits are usually 70-80 MPH.
We have never been letdown with KOA sites. Always friendly staff and quiet parks.
