Meet Your Hosts
"Come experience why Mystic KOA was awarded KOA's 2014 Founder's Award!"Mo and Beth Vandesteene may never have been introduced to the world of KOA if their transmission hadn't failed.
"On a trip to the Florida Keys in 1998, we were held up for two weeks by the tranny repair shop, so we bought a tent and headed to the Miami/Everglades KOA. We had a great time and met and worked with the staff at the campground until our rig was finished," says Mo.
The following summer the manager of the Miami/Everglades KOA asked Mo and Beth to be the activity directors for the upcoming winter season. For several years, they worked as activities directors in the winter months in Florida.
Mo's interests grew into a management position for KOA. "It's challenging and exciting. It's a lifestyle that works well for us, although we don't camp as much as we used to. We look forward to being on the road again someday," says Mo.
"We want our campers to be "KOA campers for life," says Beth. "Our staff members are trained to constantly seek out opportunities to make positive impressions with our guests. We encourage our staff to be fanatical about their roles in all aspects of our operation."
The Vandesteenes pay attention to every detail and love to see the campers' comment cards that mention how clean and well-maintained the campground is. "We are very proud when campers' kids want to stay because they're having fun, rather than go home," says Mo.
Mo and Beth are familiar with the ways of children - they now have ten grandchildren! Besides spending time with family, Beth is an avid gardener and Mo relaxes by reading about business and sports.
