Editor’s Note: The following is a press release from New York’s Lake George RV Park on the passing of the facility’s founder, Victor King.
Victor J. King, who established the Lake George RV Park camping resort in Lake George, N.Y., passed away May 7 at the age of 93.
A self-made businessman, King opened the campground in 1966 with over 200 full hookup sites, miles of paved roads and amenities not typically associated with outdoor hospitality resorts. Located on over 120 acres of beautiful property at the base of French Mountain, the gateway to the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, the park has provided over five generations of campers a special destination to return to every year.
The Lake George RV Park has been annually recognized in the top 3% of all campgrounds in the United States by Woodall’s Campground Directory since it opened. King’s family continues to serve as the park’s stewards in providing an outstanding camping experience to visitors.
“My father will always be remembered for his extraordinary passion and vision in creating this exceptional outdoor resort in Lake George. This park has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of families since he started it, and it’s continued success is a real tribute to his life’s efforts.”, says David King, his youngest son and current president and CEO of Lake George RV Park.
King will always be remembered as a pioneer and visionary of the campground industry. His passion for creating a facility that would appeal to families wishing to experience the unique qualities of nature, accompanied by the conveniences and comforts of a modern resort, remains his legacy.
