We pride ourselves on delivering great service and making sure there is a friendly atmosphere throughout the campground.Fun packed family vacations were a treat that Chris and Debbie Pietras always tried to provide and those vacations came in the form of great camping trips. While both had busy schedules, Chris owned a wholesale meat business, and Debbie, who continues to be a full-time registered nurse, were able to get away for quick weekend trips with their children.
"The weekend trips never did seem long enough and we always thought owning a campground would be a great way to have the experience last longer," says Debbie. "We found a way that allowed us to continue working with people, be outdoors at the same time and allow us time with our family," says Chris. Owning the Emmett KOA has given them just that...and a whole lot more.
The Pietras' daughter, Amy, manages the campground. She graduated from Wayne State University with a teaching degree. Amy and her husband, Dan, have 2 boys, Angelo who is 8 and Vinny who is 6. Their son, Christopher Jr., who is married to Mary, and their son, William, who is 3 and baby Ethan, who was born June 29, 2018, are also helping at the campground.
Keeping the campers happy and entertained is another way we strive to shine in our campground business. "We pride ourselves on delivering pleasant customer service and making sure there is a friendly atmosphere throughout the campground," says Debbie.
Even with the enjoyment of a busy campground, the Pietras' look forward to the off season so they can continue their first love of camping, along with cooking, vacations, and entertaining family & friends.
