Meeting Your Expectations
“With these new brand positions, our campgrounds will be better able to meet the expectations of all of our campers, no matter what kind of camping trip they have in mind,” said KOA President Pat Hittmeier. “We want to make planning your next trip as easy and fun as possible.”

Port Huron KOA owner Howard Stein was the first to adopt the KOA Resort brand. Over the year’s Howard has developed his campground from a small, 160-site facility to more than 450 sites that include single and double-room Cabins, Deluxe Cabins, Deluxe Patio RV sites and many shaded tent sites.

“We look at the transition to becoming a KOA Resort as a mere alignment of our longtime guest-services philosophy,” Stein said. “Our development has always been driven by the desires of our guests, and being the first KOA Resort is a perfect fit for us.”
