Polson KOA campground open for summer

The Polson/Flathead Lake KOA Holiday campground, located at 200 Irvine Flats Road in Polson, is open for the 2021 summer camping season.

The site is one of more than 515 open-to-the-public KOA campgrounds in the Kampgrounds of America system in the U.S. and Canada.

“The past year has been a challenging one and our campground owners and their staff are excited to welcome guests to enjoy the great outdoors,” Kampgrounds of America CEO and President Toby O’Rourke said. “We saw an increase in new and current campers amidst the COVID-19 pandemic wanting to recreate safely, and we’re proud to continue that trend into the 2021 summer camping season.”
