Meet Your Hosts
""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 anniversaryand 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 lifemy son and I our both Eagle Scoutsand 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."
