Meet Your Hosts
"Campers may be tired when they get here and enter our office, but they'll be smiling when they leave!"
The first thing you'll notice when you pull into the Oregon Dunes KOA Kampground is sand . . . and plenty of it.
But it won't take you long to see that this unique KOA Kampground has much more to offer than just great access to miles and miles of sand dunes along the beautiful Oregon coast.
"Campers may be tired when they get here and enter our office," said Kathy Gross, "But they will be smiling when they leave."
Owning a KOA campground was a retirement dream for the Gross family. But after spending more than 1,000 hours on heavy equipment moving sand when they built the campground in 1995, it fast became apparent that this would be a full-time "hobby."
"We're still building," said Kathy. "We sure aren't done yet!"
You'll likely see a lot of familiar faces on your return visits to this KOA, since it has one of the highest rates of return campers in the KOA system.
When they do find time for other interests, you'll find Fritz tinkering with old tractors and military vehicles, while Kathy will likely be riding her Arabian horse or working in her glass studio.
