Ice Cream Socials
I scream, you scream, we all scream for sundaes and root beer floats! Top your own sundaes as we'll serve up your favorite toppings such as chocolate syrup, whipped cream, nuts and more. Enjoy the chance to mingle with your fellow campers. ($)
When the sun goes down, group campfire time begins. Group campfire time brings lots of fun: toasting marshmallows, hot chocolate, cider, sing-a-longs and live entertainment.
At our pancake breakfasts, we serve up a scrumptious stack of pancakes hot off the griddle. We round out the meal with sausage links, scrambled eggs, coffee, milk and orange juice. ($)
Our "Hey" rides occur every Saturday evening, beginning the first weekend in May through the Columbus Day weekend in October. Our antique 1946 Farmall "H" tractor pulls our Lena KOA wagon throughout the campground as our KOA recreation team leads our participants with fun songs and activities.

Meet Your Hosts
"Our #1 priority is to provide the best camping experience possible. Our camping guests are treated like friends and family"
Joe and Diane Long purchased the Lena KOA campground in 2006. Prior to owning the campground, Joe was an administrator for a suburban park and recreation district and Diane was a practice manager for a very large software company. When they were searching for a campground to purchase, they were thrilled when the Lena KOA became available. The campground had long been a family favorite and was the "Perfect Fit".
Joe and Diane take pride in the campground cleanliness, the family-oriented nature of their KOA, and in providing campers with the best camping experience possible. "This is the kind of campground we want our campers to feel is worth making it back to again and again" said Joe. The returning campers attest to their excellent customer service. The Long family treats campers as they would like to be treated, like they are guests in our home.
In their spare time, Joe enjoys music and sports, while Diane dabbles into sewing, quilting and embroidery work. Their daughters Allie and Kaley enjoy the campground atmosphere and its recreational activities. They believe that the Lena KOA is a great place for kids to make friends.
Since Joe and Diane purchased the campground, they have been in the Top 10 KOA Kampgrounds based on Kamper Satisfaction Survey scores. In 2009, they were awarded KOA's "Rising Star" award and had the highest camper satisfaction score of any KOA.
