No outside Firewood allowed! We have options!
Due to the loss of many trees we have had to be strict with our outside firewood policy! But we now offer a solution! We have found a 'safe' firewood and we can offer another option in addition to our usual 'bundles' of wood - a golf cart full of firewood. Golf carts of wood can be ordered on arrival, or you can make a note on your reservation that you would be interested and will make sure to have that available for you when you arrive. Thanks for understanding why we can't allow outside firewood, and for helping us save the remaining trees on our property!
Meet Your Hosts
"Guest Services is our specialty! From Welcome to Farewell, we are at your service and hope to meet all your needs during your stay! We specialize in assisting new RVer's all the ropes to running their units the best possible way."
Expect to be treated like family and be greeted with a smile when you arrive at the Elkhart Co./Middlebury KOA! The Perkins originally are from the Boston area of the East Coast and are former ardent campers. "We give our guests the kind of service we would expect from a campground," Hope says.
Owner Hope Perkins (with her late husband Peter) purchased the campground in 2002. Previously, Hope worked for an ophthalmologist as an assistant, but both were ready for a lifestyle change and wanted to interact with people who were traveling. Hope throws her all into the campground and is proud of the many upgrades and changes they have made since purchasing in 2002.
Hope's son, Nick, known as "Boston," brings new life to the campground with his youth, energy, love of the outdoors and interest in today's ever-changing technologies. Nick can be seen darting all over the campground chasing a lawn mower or working on the latest projects. He is also in charge of our recently upgraded pool and all that goes with keeping it clean for our guests.
Hope and Nick are particularly proud of their extensive store that offers everything from RV supplies to great local souvenirs.
When the family is not traveling, they enjoy visiting with their guests, listening to music, reading, watching movies and scrap booking.
