Bill and Betty Workman, owners of Vacation Trailer Park campground and Vacation Trailer RV Sales in Benzonia, Mich, were honored May 6 at the Pure Michigan Governor’s Conference “Driving Tourism” held at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.
The Workmans were given a “Stars of the Industry Award,” designating them as Seasonal Operators of the Year for their campground.
The Workmans have owned Vacation Trail Park campground in Benzonia for 42 years. They are also the owners of Vacation Trailer Sales, an RV sales business. Gov. Beverly Granholm selected this campground twice for a weekend camping and fishing trip with her family.
The Workmans have both served on the board of directors for the Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC). The Workmans have also served on the board of the Benzie County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Over the span of their careers, they have served as volunteers on MARVAC’s Strategic Planning and RV Show as well as numerous other tourism-related committees.
