Meet Your Hosts

Our greatest pleasure is bringing people together in the outdoors. We have the best job there is!

Stephen Sullivan (aka “Sulli”) joined the KOA family after retiring from law enforcement (former marine) after 23 years of service at the age of 47.  He thought he was “living the dream” – getting paid not to work while traveling around in an RV with his wife, Lana. A plot twist was inevitable and after workkamping on and off for several years, Sully couldn't stand the boredom and decided to go back to work full-time.

Stephen has worked at several campgrounds; his previous role was GM of Rockport KOA Holiday in Texas. With a big a move North, Stephen and Lana are happy to welcome campers to Lake Placid/Whiteface Mountain KOA Holiday.
