Meet Your Hosts
"Our family is looking forward to making memories with your family, join us today for a GREAT Time"Windy Acres was the brainchild of Merrill Witherell who
Opened the first phase of the campground around 1970. It consisted
Of about 30 campsites, an open pavilion and bathrooms. In 1985 he completed a major expansion of the campground increasing the campground to 137 sites with 20 amp power and water hookups.
A safari field made by converting a former apple orchard for group camping was also added. He also added a bathroom building in the middle of the campground and another pavilion with bathrooms in the upper portion of the park. In 1990 he sold the campground to Fran & Nancy McClure who with their children brought new life to the campground. Over the next 12 years they upgraded some of the park to 30 amp power added daily activities, bingo, and other activities found in the resort style campgrounds of the 90’s. In April 2002 the campground was purchased by The Kelsey Family who immediately began adding their touch to the campground. Over the next six years they added two swimming pools, playgrounds, a game room, camp store, and a laundry area. Major upgrades to the infrastructure of the campground also took place. The whole electrical system was upgraded to handle today’s modern RV’s as well as the safari group area was upgraded with 30 amp and 50 amp sites. A commercial kitchen and snack bar was added to the upper pavilion. In the fall of 2008 we were approved as a KOA Franchise and opened as a Northampton/Springfield KOA in the spring of 2009. The bathrooms were renovated with tile floors, new fixtures and FREE hot showers. In 2010 we added our first Deluxe Cabins and began a major renovation to the front area of the campground. 2011 saw the completion of our new 70 foot pull through full hookup sites as well as upgrading 20 more back in sites to Full Hookup Sites. More Deluxe Cabins were added. In 2012 we added cable TV to most of the sites as well as improved our appearance. Come stop by and meet the Kelsey’s and become part of this exciting KOA’s future family traditions.
