Meet Your Hosts
"At the 1000 Islands/Kingston KOA we want to make sure that everyone has a great time. When you camp with us you are not only our guests, but also our family."Patrick and Amanda are the husband and wife team that manage the award winning 1000 Islands/Kingston KOA at the beginning of the beautiful 1000 Islands region. Patrick, a Psychology major, and Amanda, a CYW and PSW are determined to make sure that every camper has an amazing experience when they are their guests. "We both take a very personal approach to the campground and try to meet with each of our guests to make sure that they are enjoying their time with us" said Patrick.
Patrick is originally from Germany and has lived in Germany, the U.S.A. and Canada. Patrick has been camping at KOA's since he was 5 years old. I remember sitting in class when I was very young not being able to pay attention to my teacher because I knew that by 6 oclock that night I would be sitting by the campfire roasting marshmallows Patrick said. When I heard that we were buying a KOA in Canada I was so excited. Even though I had to leave my friends and school in California I knew that it was going to be worthwhile when I could sit by a campfire every night.
Amanda is a native of Gananoque and has been camping for many years. I have always loved the outdoors and really enjoy nature she said. Amanda will be joining the campground full-time in the 2015 season.
Patrick and Amanda recently welcomed their first child Lucas in June of 2014. Amanda said A campground is the perfect place to raise a family. We cannot wait until he is old enough to help us out with our wood deliveries and site escorts. As a young family we strive to ensure a family friendly atmosphere where kids have a fun-filled time and cannot wait to return and visit their friends.
