Many folks leave their gray water (sinks and tub) valves open when connected to our sewer hookup. Although this practice is convenient it's not healthy. When this valve is open sewer (methane) gasses can travel from our septic system through the valve, into your empty tank and up through the breather pipe exiting your roof. Methane gas is heavy and will settle on your site and sites around you. Not pleasant to say the least. Please keep all valves closed until you are ready to empty your tanks.

Meet Your Hosts

Jeff & Melanie Peterson

Welcome to the Skowhegan / Kennebec Valley KOA! We hope you embrace the endless opportunities in Maine!

September 4, 2014 was a lucky day in many ways for Jeff and Melanie Peterson. It signified their tenth wedding anniversary and the day they signed the final paperwork to purchase the Skowhegan/Kennebec Valley KOA. "We'd been dreaming of that day for five years," says Jeff. I've been an avid camper most of my life, my son and I our both Eagle Scouts and Melanie and I have camped since we got married. A few years ago, after spending time at the Saco / Old Orchard Beach KOA and getting to know the owners there, we realized that it was exactly what we needed to be doing. Over the next 5 years, the Connecticut couple looked for campgrounds in the Southeastern U.S. When they learned the Skowhegan / Kennebec Valley was on the market, however, they instinctively felt it was the one for them. Several months later, they were handed the keys to their dream."We were a little nervous, coming to a small town," Jeff says. "But everyone has been so welcoming; they're willing to really support us and help us out. They're excited about us being here and so are we."
