The Crescent City/Redwoods KOA campground in California was recently among 30 Kampgrounds of America parks named to a list of top campgrounds in North America.

The local KOA was also named one of the Top 25 Biking Trail Campgrounds for 2008 by ReserveAmerica, a recreation reservation service.

The ranking is intended as a guide to help consumers plan their visits.

The campgrounds were selected based on testimonials, campground ratings and feedback provided by park rangers, regional park management and campers throughout the year.

Nearly 4,000 parks were reviewed and the winners were determined based on specific family-friendly criteria ranging from educational programs and visitor centers to camping amenities and overall beauty and scenery.

Factors including the quality and availability of hot showers, laundry facilities, hiking trails, family beaches, radio-free zones, children's events and location were also considered.
