Meet Your Hosts

Tom and Karin Stroh

Come to Houghton Letchworth KOA where great family memories are made.

Tom and Karin Stroh have been avid campers for more than thirty years, beginning on the shores of Long Island. Their love of the outdoors and their vision to one day own a business came together in 2015 when they decided to purchase the Houghton Letchworth KOA. Everything about camping excites them and the best part is meeting new people who enjoy the same. Both Tom and Karin also love to host people and are known by family and friends to go out of their way to show everyone a good time. Their daughters are also part of the business and you will meet them while helping out in the store or with guest activities. You can be sure though that you will run into one of the Strohs' on your visit, and when you do, you will be greeted with a hello and a smile. Their mission is to make your camping experience at the Houghton Letchworth KOA an enjoyable and memorable experience and one that you will remember for years to come.
