When I was approached by KOA about a glamping trip, I have to admit I was a little hesitant. You might laugh at me, but for some reason growing up I always thought KOA was for boy scouts? I don’t know how I got the idea in my head, but it always stuck with me. After learning more, we were pretty excited for our trip. We booked one of their airstream units because I’ve always wanted to go glamping in an airstream. They just seem like the perfect mix of past and future. Toyota set us up with a Highlander for our trip and it was the perfect size to fit all of our gear comfortably. Steve couldn’t get away from work, so my mom (our beloved Nana) came with us. Unpacking was a breeze and the kids settled in quickly.
I didn’t know what to expect, so I’ll admit that I overpacked by quite a bit. Our airstream came with most of the supplies we needed to cook, sleep, and have fun. Other types of accommodations like the tent sites or certain cabins do not. It didn’t take long for the boys to find the playground and beach fun area. We rented a four-wheeled pedal bike and took turns riding around. It was a good workout (especially with Søren on the back) but lots of fun. I’ve been trying to rationalize why we might need one at home but so far it’s not looking good so I guess we’ll have to come back some day.
After dinner the fog rolled in quickly and Nana taught Aiden a little bit about building a campfire. We had s’mores and then called it a night.
For this trip our stay was sponsored by KOA Kampgrounds and vehicle by Toyota. All opinions, text, and images are my own. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that make life here at Team Wiking a little sweeter.
