Our home tonight is the Mercer/Grove City KOA in western Pennsylvania chosen for its proximity to tomorrow’s adventure, the promise of decent laundry facilities, and the ease of making a reservation through the KOA app. Yes, we love public campgrounds, they are often nicely wooded with well spaced sites and more affordable fees. On the other hand KOA sites are usually level and offer electric and water at a minimum. Sometimes it’s just nice to get a full hookups site including cable TV and catch up on some of the news.
