Founder's Award 2022 and One of the Top Ranked Parks
(October 15, 2021) Kampgrounds of America (KOA) has tabulated the results of guest surveys of another camping season measuring quality and service and once again has awarded the Coloma/St. Joseph KOA Holiday with the prestigious Founder's Award for 2022.
Dave Drum, founder of KOA, was an extraordinary visionary and dreamer. The recipients of KOA's premiere achievement, the KOA Founder's Award, share Dave's dream of providing the highest quality camping facilities while exceeding KOA guests' expectations. As leaders in outdoor hospitality, recipients embody Dave's vision of providing excellence for generations of campers.
This annual exercise is performed across the entire KOA system, which is recognized by the industry as the largest network of independently-owned and operated campgrounds in the world! In addition to earning the Founder's Award since Mark & Karla Lemoine purchased the campground in 2016, this year the Lemoine's also ranked #28 out of all of the 525+ locations across north America.
"Our guests know that we pour our heart and soul into our business, working hard to provide a peaceful and exceptional experience, welcoming them every day as if we are opening our home," said Mark. "After six years of making numerous investments, it's exciting to see everything come together and our vision coming to fruition."
Karla added, "We have an incredible team of hard-working and dedicated staff that help us make this possible, from retirees to high school and college students. With an eye on the future, we don't rest on our laurels, but find it extremely satisfying to run our family-owned business providing refreshment for thousands of guests each year!"
