Meet Your Hosts
"There is a peace when sitting on the creek and watching the ducks or fishing"
Before the camping business, John and Judi Durham owned a restaurant; something Judi said helped mold them into great service-oriented people. The camping business is all about people, and John and Judi love the ability to get up each morning and meet others. "We wake up every day and don't know what is going to happen," Judi said. "Every day is different and exciting."
We have brought that same restaurant enthusiasm to the KOA, check out or Remember When Diner with all its memorabilia! As featured in Motorhome Magazine.
John and Judi say campers love the serenity their campground offers. "There is a peace when sitting on the creek and watching the ducks or fishing," added Judi. The repeat business they have collected over the years is a good way of reconnecting with their campers. The family-oriented park is a great getaway in a very scenic area. When a camper drives the curving road to the KOA, they encounter nature at its best. The roads twists alongside the creek and the over-hanging trees provide an unusual, relaxed atmosphere. "We camped with our daughter at this very campground when she was one year old. We bought the campground when she was 5," said Judi recalling their 1988 purchase. The pool, outdoor theatre, miniature golf course, and scheduled activities keep campers busy for as long as they would like to stay. According to Judi, the creek is wide and is a fun place to canoe or fish. "Thirteen sites line the creek and we have many return campers who have their favorite sites out there," added Judi.
In October at the Hagerstown KOA is the house next door to the campground. The home took the name, "The Terror of Creekside Manor" and is a fun Halloween activity. "We discovered the haunted nature of the house and decided to turn it into an actual haunted house," said Judi. "It is open for five full weeks in October and is open to campers and the public. We love it."
