Dust off those tents and sleeping bags because camping season is officially open in Southeast Minnesota! If the fresh air and fireside friendships aren’t enough to get you camping, KOA has a pretty amazing giveaway that will help you camp in style!  I'm also sharing a few tips for those who are wanting to try camping for the first time.

Some of my favorite memories with my family are when we went camping.  The bike rides around lakes, finding local ice cream stores, fires in the pit, and the sounds of nature – nothing else like it.  I did have a few run-in's with snakes and am not a fan of porta-potties but if you give a girl an RV...well, I might just change my mind and try camping again.

The Rochester/Marion KOA Journey campground is now open for the season and KOA has a great incentive for everyone to enjoy the outdoors this year! KOA has partnered with Keystone RV Company for the “What’s Behind the Yellow Sign?” Giveaway. The winner will receive $1,000 in cash, a $500 KOA gift card and a Keystone Passport ROV Travel Trailer that is valued at $19,800!
