KOA Campgrounds Irate over man carrying a gun… On his own property.

Apparently KOA Campgrounds is not too fond of guns. William owns property adjacent to a KOA campground in Idaho and had a recent run-in with KOA staff who were none too happy about him having a gun… on his own property. He had this to say:

I am writing due to an incident with KOA staff over the fence at my own property. I am not an activist, nor was I protesting or anything but: While on my own property I commonly open carry a handgun in a holster on my hip. I was minding my own business and walking my dogs around my acreage and actually on the phone with someone when I was called over to the fenceline by a KOA agent. He proceeded to tell me he had several complaints about me ‘parading with a gun’ down the fenceline. I had actually only walked the fenceline once that evening as it has been too hot today, and I was simply walking my dogs. I was at least 50 feet from the line when he called me over and I had to get off the phone to talk to him. I did not realize KOA was anti-gun, but this takes anti-gun to a new level: complaining about someone not on KOA property, whilst in uniform as a KOA agent on duty.

He has contacted KOA corporate offices to inform them about this and is asking for a full apology.

Here is video from William on the situation…

*Will update if KOA ever responds.

UPDATE: KOA responds.

  1. He has evry right to carry to carry on hios own property & KOA needs to remember this. It’s none of their business!

  2. Thank you guys for getting the word out, every little bit helps. So far I only recieved a generic ‘you can call us’ type email from corporate. As for local, they have raged on a few of my friends that have called them about this, and claimed among other things ‘they only care about their customers safety.’ Like I’m somehow a threat walking my dogs.

  3. It’s unfortunate that KOA has so little regard for others right to bear arms, let alone property rights. I can only hope that this sparks enough debate that KOA considers giving the man an apology.

  4. My roadside assistance motor club has signed me up fro membership with KOA. I told them, and KOA corporate that I was resigning my membership immediately….I told them why.

  5. KOA is on my black list. I have no desire to visit their facilities. Perhaps the rest of the gun owning public should do likewise. Just saying. It usually takes a hit in the profit margin to get corp. to see their error.
