Meet Your Hosts
"Flowering bushes dot the park and pine trees offer shade."
Harold and Linda Fisher wanted to do something different to get away from their busy lives. After purchasing their KOA campground in 1998, the couple realized that this was the life for them, but there was much work to be done. To this day, Linda says she always sees things needing to be improved. "It's a process that makes our KOA better each day," said Linda.
The park is primarily an overnight campground, but the amenities for staying longer are available. "People come and stay a night or two. But we love to see people staying longer for a quick vacation or visiting relatives is always nice," added Linda. She says the area is beautiful. Flowering bushes dot the park and pine trees offer shade. "We love the spring and the fall - it's relaxed and things seem restful," said Linda.
The couple loves meeting new people and they take into consideration every complaint and compliment. "Trying to break the ice with guests is fun and it gives us a chance to get to know them. Everyone puts on their best smile and truly enjoys their surroundings," said Linda. The couple knows what it is like to be on the receiving end of a campground and they stress that "things that are important to customers are important to us." Linda said making her guests feel like family is their goal. "We try to make them feel at home," said Linda.
Family is important at the Fort Smith KOA. Harold and Linda live on-site and their kids all live at the campground except for a daughter and family in Alabama.. Visiting their children and their grandchildren is a favorite pastime and Linda plays piano when time permits.
