Lazydays/KOA Campground

The campground, located at 5151 S. Country Club Road in Tucson, will now be known as the Tucson/Lazydays KOA Campground. It will join 486 other locations in the KOA system throughout North America.

Lazydays RV CEO Tim Sheehan said the agreement with KOA includes a marketing agreement that allows the two iconic outdoor industry brands to work together to promote both the campground and Lazydays RV, which will continue to operate a Lazydays RV dealership and service center at the Tucson site.

The agreement on the Tucson property will be finalized in early November, after Kampgrounds of America Inc. completes the due diligence process at the campground.
