Meet Your Hosts
"All employees are trained to understand the importance of teamwork, fun, and fellowship,” says Victor."
For Victor and Kathleen Arsenault and their family, there was hardly a time when KOA campgrounds weren't a part of their lives. Victor was hired to build and manage a KOA campground 36 years ago and, although he took a brief job (28 years) as a director with the Boy Scouts of America, he always knew he wanted to return. Kathleen, at the time a high-school teacher, supported the decision to purchase the Canandaigua KOA. She thought that raising her family, while working a fun job, was too good to pass up. "We take pride in living on the campground," says Victor, "we want to be part of the action."
Victor and Kathleen encourage anyone, with every kind of camping ability, to come and visit. One special feature of the campground is that the cabins, kottages, tent sites, and RV sites are next to each other or nearby so people with different camping needs can camp together.
Victor and Kathleen rely on their mission statement to encourage great service: "To provide quality services in a safe, secure and clean outdoor environment that will result in a fun-filled camping experience for the entire camping family." They said their bottom line is to have fun and provide excellent service. "All employees are trained to understand the importance of teamwork, fun, and fellowship that will quickly deliver quality service," says Victor.
The campground caters to many different kinds of people, and the people returning each year is proof enough that they will continue to have more. "We enjoy providing a quality campground to many people who are enjoying touring this great country," Victor said.
