Meet Your Hosts
"3 Generations of the Linde family are waiting to help you plan the ultimate Yellowstone experience."
Since 1982, the Yellowstone National Park KOA was in the Linde family. Avid campers themselves, Steve Linde has worked at this KOA since he was a child and now shares the opportunity of working at this great location with his wife Laurel and their 3 boys.
Surrounded by beautiful scenery at Yellowstone KOA, the Linde's KOA focuses on customer service, and they have many repeat customers. Steve and his wife Laurel are there to be sure each customer is happy. "We have over 30,000 campsites occupied in a four month season, most of which visit from late June to early August," said Steve. They support a large seasonal staff, and Steve added that his KOA challenges them to recruit new employees. The campground also employs a staff of full time employees, and their concentration in the off-months is consistent renovations. Steve said, "staying up to date" is a top priority for the Lindes and modernizing helps their campground to accommodate all visitors. Steve is proud that they come up with many new ideas that other campgrounds can use to improve their sites.
If one is in search of a friendly, fun park, then Yellowstone KOA is the place. They provide activities including ice cream socials, scavenger hunts, and s'mores. "There is something going on every other night," said Steve. Because of the constant renovations, Steve mentioned that his campground is "big rig friendly." Often times a site will have two ready ducts for RV's instead of the usual one.
In the off season, the Lindes spend time in Billings, Montana. When Steve and Laurel are not working, Steve enjoys bow hunting and Laurel is an accomplished musician who plays the clarinet.
