Meet Your Hosts

The Martin Family

We want to make our campers feel as much at home as possible while they're staying at our campground.

The KOA campground business is a family affair, as the Martin family, owners of the Lynden/Bellingham, KOA, in Washington, have proven over the years.

As long time Californians, how the Martin family stumbled upon the Lynden KOA is quite the story. For 20 years, Dan Martin was involved with the trucking business in Downey, CA and his wife, Shirley, worked for the local Police Department. Growing tired of the trucking competition, Dan began looking for an RV campground to purchase.

The search had been going for two to three years until it suddenly came to an end. Dan and Shirley were sitting in a local donut shop, enjoying each other's company over coffee and a donut, when, to their surprise, a man walked in and kissed Dan on his head. When Dan turned around, to the man's embarrassment, he realized he had mistaken Dan for his friend Jim Walters. By coincidence, Dan and Shirley happened to know Jim, he was Dan's cousin, so they invited this new found friend to join them.

As the three began to talk, low and behold, this man was also looking to purchase a campground and had just returned from a trip to Washington. He had visited a beautiful campground that he wanted to purchase but just couldn't swing it. He had all the information in his car, including pictures and maps etc.

The Martins were very interested, so when they got home they called the owner and arranged to fly up and view the property. When they arrived in Lynden, the campground was covered in a blanket of snow, but the Martins saw potential and fell in love with the area. They decided this was right for them, so they went home and sold their house and trucking business and moved with their sons, Marty and Eddy, to Lynden, Washington.

All these years later the campground is still in the family. Eddy, Terri and Vicki are now partners in the business. Vicki says, "We treat everyone like family, and make our campers feel as much at home as possible while they're staying at our campground. We want everyone to experience the same joys of camping we grew up with and still love today."

The Martin family takes a great deal of pride in offering all of their campers a warm, friendly environment filled with fun activities for all ages, encompassing beautiful surroundings, and a unique camping experience that keeps families coming back year after year.
