Meet Your Hosts
"A quiet place to kick off your shoes and relax. We have fun for everyone!"
After working for years in New York City's largest homeless shelter, Wayne Hampel decided to skip the city politics and return to business for himself.
As assistant manager of building and grounds for the 1,000-person shelter, Wayne saw his share of crazy days. Prior to that he and his wife, Gail, owned a retail business for 20 years. Wayne said the couple felt ready to abandon big business and get back into business for themselves. As campers of 30 years, the campground business was a great fit.
"We have camped in tents, motor homes and in every level of camping," Wayne said. "We thought we could bring a lot of good experience to the business."
The Hampel's bought the KOA campground in 2005 and like the side benefits of a seasonal business. "We don't mind working real hard for the summer and having a couple of months off to enjoy ourselves," he said. "This gives us time to afford travel."
The Saugerties campground is a family effort. Both of the Hampel's college-age sons are involved, as well as extended family on both sides. "It is one big family affair," Wayne said.
Despite waking up each morning to a thickly wooded campground, the Hampel's say they are still taken in by its beauty. "It is a very natural campground," Wayne said. "Gail and I walk the trails regularly and see all the wildlife living on the grounds."
