Kampgrounds of America, Inc. (KOA) announced winners of their annual campground awards during their Baton Rouge, Louisiana, convention this past week. The winners are based on surveys from campers following their stay as well as an annual on-site quality inspection of the campgrounds.
The awards include the KOA President’s Award, which is presented to campgrounds that excel in providing great camping facilities and high levels of guest service. Receiving that award also entitles a campground to be awarded the Founder’s Award, which is the premiere achievement awarded to KOA campgrounds with the highest quality camping facilities that exceed guest expectations.
Campgrounds are awarded from every state, of which there are 525 across the nation.
In Michigan, there are several award-winning KOA campgrounds that are also members of the Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC). These MARVAC members include:
- Monroe County KOA – President’s Award
- Oscoda KOA – President’s & Founder’s Award
- Petoskey KOA – President’s & Founder’s Award
- Port Huron KOA– President’s Award
- Traverse City KOA– President’s & Founder’s Award
- Weidman KOA – President’s Award
“MARVAC wishes to congratulate Monroe County KOA, Oscoda KOA, Petoskey KOA, Port Huron KOA, Traverse City KOA, and Wiedman KOA on being recognized by Kampgrounds of America (KOA) for their achievements,” says Darren Ing, director of the Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds. “These campgrounds represent a commitment to excellence that benefits their guests, the campground industry, and Michigan.”
You can locate and connect with each of these award-winning campgrounds through MARVAC’s online map, as well as through the organization’s annual directory.
