Featuring 230 exceptional photos, this is the first book covering KOA Kampgrounds of America the largest travel camping host in the world and the artwork the organization has commissioned over the years. Each original work of art is related to camping and RVing. The artwork includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and other forms, all housed in the KOA International Headquarters in the company's Art of Kamping Gallery. The subjects covered in these chapters include folk art, humor, whimsy, civic spirit, international, the KOA-Airstream connection, a commemoration of KOA's 2012 fiftieth anniversary celebration, and more. Taken together, this collection celebrates the "soft rugged" camping experience KOA provides, reflecting the belief that camping is an important and positive life experience. It shows how camping brings families and friends together, escaping the humdrum everyday experience in favor of the exciting, restorative outdoor experience enjoyed by young and old alike.
