KOA has helped sponsor the journey of the magnificent tree that is currently gracing the US Capitol Building in Washington. Because of KOA’s CEO Jim Rogers’ partnership with public and private outdoor coalitions, this year the camping club helped facilitate the 3,000-mile transit of the tree from Colorado to the lawn of the capitol, where it is enjoyed by many.

Caledonia’s Yogi Bear Jellystone Campground in Milwaukee annually provides the community with Carnival of Lights, a spectacular Christmas display of 1.3 million lights around their park.

Carefree RV Resorts is offering a grand prize of $5,000 in a talent competition to be held in March, so snowbirds who have musical, comedic or dancing skills may want to stay at one of these parks this winter.
