KOA Adds Ohio Campground, Ups Total to 477
The newest campground to join Kampgrounds of America Inc.’s (KOA) North American system is the Salem/Lisbon KOA, located in the northeast corner of Ohio.
The Salem/Lisbon KOA Campground, formerly known as Stoneridge Terrace, is the seventh new location to join the 477-park KOA system in 2011, according to a news release.
Other additions in 2011 include the Murphy/Pease Valley, North Carolina KOA; Deerpark/New York City NW KOA; Chautauqua Lake, New York KOA; Meadville, Pennsylvania KOA; Montrose/Black Canyon National Park, Colorado KOA; and the Cross/Santee Cooper Lakes, South Carolina KOA.
“The Salem/Lisbon KOA is another great fit for the KOA system,” said KOA President Pat Hittmeier. “We are very selective when it comes to fitting the needs and desires of our campers, and it’s always wonderful when we are able to welcome a campground like this, with owners like the Kuders, to the KOA family.”
The Salem/Lisbon KOA will be adding to its already substantial camping offerings, including more campsites and lodge accommodations.
Owner Barb Weikart-Kuder said KOA’s KampSight online campground operating system will make things easier for both staff and campers.
“We will be able to offer live and online reservations now,” she said. “Becoming a KOA gives us more exposure on a local, regional and national level.”
The campground has an Olympic-size, heated swimming pool, extensive clubhouse and 3.5-acre catch-and-release fishing pond.
