Meet Your Hosts

Nick and Tasha Lopez

We always have a good time at our KOA, right along with our guests!

KOA owners, Nick and Tasha Lopez, are in the unique situation of carrying on the traditions of the past, as they create & operate a campground for the future.

The Ely, NV KOA is owned and operated at an award-winning level for years under the direction of Nick and Tasha and their team. "We are proud of the legacy left behind by the previous owner. We strive to continue on in that legacy," says Nick. "Since family is our priority, we do our best to keep our campground fun and safe for kids, almost like a step back in time."

Nick and Tasha believe that happy workers make happy guests, so they emphasize a fun-loving environment for a strong customer service team, making every day at work enjoyable & every camping experience a memorable one. "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life!"

"We like to help our campers get settled and meet their every need, helping them feel right at home at our KOA! We work to create a place of tranquility, where road-weary guests can feel rejuvenated. Our goal is to have our guests leave feeling like family, with a strong desire to quickly return to our KOA – and our incredibly soft grass!" says Tasha.

Like their campers, the Lopez family enjoys photography, family time, camping, hiking, fishing, sticky s'mores, traveling, boating, “And anything outdoors with the people we love!” says Tasha. "We enjoy meeting so many people, from different walks of life. We always have a good time at our KOA, right along with our guests!"
