Meet Your Hosts
"We have great pride in ownership and the quality of camping for our guests.”"
Tim and Bobbi Hulen were looking for a dramatic lifestyle change before purchasing the Amarillo KOA. Both spending over twenty years in the banking industry as executives, they were craving a break from corporate America. "We were searching for something that would enable us to spend more time together as a family," said Tim.
Together with their three children, Tim and Bobbi left their longtime residence of San Diego, California and headed east for Amarillo, Texas in 1994. "Never did we think that we would live in Texas, but we couldn't be happier. The people here are phenomenal and the laid-back lifestyle is exactly what we were in need of", said Bobbi.
Being long-time campers and having a passion for being outdoors, the Hulens immediately enjoyed owning a campground. With the help of their children, Amarillo KOA remains a clean and fun place to be. "We have great pride in ownership and the quality of camping for our guests. We love our campground and especially value our unique gift store," said Tim.
Having experience in working with the public has been very beneficial for Tim and Bobbi. "We treat our guests as we would want to be treated and we have always loved working with people. We strive to provide the best possible camping experience here at Amarillo KOA," said Bobbi. Spending time together as a family and working alongside their children is what makes owning the campground so special for the Hulens. Daughter, Kellie is the current store manager, overseeing scheduling, inventory, and guest relations.
In their spare time, the Hulens can be found traveling in their RV and spending time with their grown children and grandchildren.
