Meet Your Hosts
"We want our campers to enjoy a stress free, family fun atmosphere to create those lasting memories."
One of the first things you will notice about the DeRosa family is the value they place on quality family time. When deciding what their next venture in life would be, Libby and Tom DeRosa, along with their triplets, Katie, Tommy and Micaela and their youngest son Joshua wanted it to involve the whole family.
"We knew we wanted a family business where everyone including the kids could participate and use their own personal gifts and talents," said Libby. "KOA was a perfect fit because of our love for camping and the opportunity to spend family time together."
Their philosophy on family is what makes the campground so inviting. "We have always felt that spending time together as a family is important," said Libby. "We want our campers to enjoy a stress free, family fun atmosphere to create those lasting memories."
One activity that families can enjoy on the campground is picking blueberries that are ready to be picked from July to early September. "We have over 4 acres of u-pick blueberries on the campground," said Tom. "South Haven area is famous for its quality of blueberries and has come to be known as the Blueberry Capitol."
Before entering the camping industry, Tom was a project manager and engineer for 12 years and Libby was a very busy stay at home mom and physical therapist.
In their spare time, Libby loves to garden, while Tom enjoys hunting. Tom is in the state record book for his 6 point deer that is showcased in the campground lodge, along with his elk and his brother's state record 33 point non-typical deer. As you walk the campground you will see many of Libby's landscaping projects, she loves flowers.
