Meet Your Hosts

Thomas Jetzer and Patricia Schenk-Jetzer

"Every customer is unique, and we treat them that way!"


Teamwork is what prompted Thomas Jetzer and Patricia Schenk to move from their homes in Switzerland to the United States. "We wanted to run our own company and to work in traveling or camping," said Patricia. Thomas was working as a car mechanic foreman for GM, and Patricia was the general manager at an RV rental company after the two immigrated to the United States in 2002. In 2005, they purchased the South Bend KOA and have since invested much of their lives into their business. "We are one big family," said Patricia.

According to Thomas and Patricia, the South Bend KOA proves customer service friendly, and everyone attempts to ensure a pleasant stay. "Every customer is unique and should be treated like that," added Patricia. Not only are the customers unique, the campground itself is commendable-renovations, scenery, and accommodations are what a camper would expect upon arrival. "Our beautiful cabin village, our gorgeous tall pine trees, and our remodeled store bring us the most pride," said Patricia.

True to their business, Thomas and Patricia love to camp and travel. "We have done more than 100,000 miles along the USA and have restored a 1973 GMC motor home to use it as often as possible," said Patricia.
