Kampgrounds of America, the world’s largest family of family-friendly, open-to-the-public campgrounds, announced the Ashland/Huntington West KOA Holiday has earned the 2021 KOA President’s Award and KOA Founder’s Award.

These awards were presented on Tuesday at KOA’s Annual International Convention.

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 KOA’s highest service award. It is awarded exclusively to those KOA campground owners and managers who attain world-class scores in both customer service and the KOA Quality Review.

The KOA President’s Award is presented to those campgrounds meeting exceptional quality standards and who receive high customer service scores from their camping guests. KOA surveys hundreds of thousands of campers each year regarding their KOA camping experience.  

KOA is celebrating its 58th anniversary in 2020. To find out more about this KOA, or any of the other 515 KOAs in the U.S. or Canada, go to www.KOA.com.
