*************************
The Sault Ste. Marie KOA Holiday Campground, owned and operated by Bill and Joan Richard, has been awarded the 2018 KOA President’s Award and KOA Founder’s Award by Kampgrounds of America Inc., the world’s largest system of family-friendly campgrounds. The awards were presented Friday, Nov. 17 at KOA’s annual International Convention in Phoenix, Arizona. KOA is also celebrating its 55th Anniversary in 2017.

The KOA Founder’s and KOA President’s Awards are presented annually to campgrounds that receive the highest scores in customer service from their campers, and also receive top scores in KOA’s annual Quality Review. 

The KOA Founder’s Award, named in honor of Dave Drum, who founded KOA on the banks of the Yellowstone River in Billings, Montana in 1962, is given to those KOA campground owners and managers who attained the very top scores in both customer service and the KOA Quality Review. KOA surveys hundreds of thousands of campers each year regarding their KOA camping experience.

“We are so proud to honor these fantastic KOA campground owners and managers,” said KOA President and CEO Pat Hittmeier. “The recipients of these awards do a wonderful job of taking care of our guests, and that’s why we include guest feedback as a major factor when selecting campgrounds for these awards. KOA Founder’s Award and KOA President’s Award recipients are the best of the best in camping.”

Kampgrounds of America was founded in 1962 on the banks of the Yellowstone River in Billings, Montana. To find out more about this KOA, any of the other 500 KOAs in the U.S. or Canada, go to www.KOA.com.
