Enjoy the city of Fort Collins all year!

Lee and her husband, Jim, welcome you to the beautiful Front Range of Colorado! Lee and Jim have been a part of KOA since 2013. Lee is the General Manager and you can find Jim on the property each day as the Maintenance supervisor. Recently moving to NOCO from Dallas / Arlington KOA Holiday, the Oliver's are ecstatic to find their new home in Colorado. "This is the area of the country we've always wanted to live. I knew it was for us the moment we drove in!" said Lee. Lee and Jim were both in the Navy in their life before KOA, where Lee ran an aviation supply office and Jim was an avionics technician. After leaving the service, they began their KOA adventure as Work Kampers at the Elizabethtown / Hershey KOA Holiday and Hagerstown / Antietam Battlefield KOA Holiday.  They've worked at Orlando / Kissimmee KOA Holiday, Cape Hatteras KOA Resort, and Moab KOA Holiday. Be sure to say hello! They love meeting campers and ensuring your stay is great!
