The Nance and Polasky Families

"We enjoy being able to help people with a full-hearted passion!"

The Nance and Polasky families became owners of the Asheville West, NC KOA in March 2008. "We want to build lasting relationships with our campers and deliver a GREAT, SAFE, FAMILY-ORIENTED camping experience for everyone," says owner Rex Nance.

"We were all looking for a fun way to bring the whole family together; we've been campers for the majority of our lives, and we knew managing a campground would be a perfect way to combine our skills and unite our family," says Rex.

Everyone in the family brings unique experience to the business: Ray was a retired Chief of Forestry; Hildie was a retired Medical Technologist; Rex worked as an IT executive for a payment processor; Heather spent her time educating their daughter; Julia is a competitive Figure Skater; Ethan Polasky managed a saw mill and flooring factory in northern New Mexico, while his wife, Sophia, worked as a medical professional in Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Justin Polasky worked in the food service industry there.

"We love the cleanliness of the entire campground and the nice, shaded camp sites, as well as the mountains, trees and nature trails. We enjoy being able to help people with a full-hearted passion!" Rex says.

The large family has a variety of things they love to do, including fishing, paintball, cycling, hiking, reading, swimming, remote control cars, 4-wheeling, softball, and arts and crafts.
