Meet Your Hosts

The Dale Family

Come see us and you'll say WOW!


Jerry and Barbara Dale knew their next step in life involved either a marina or a campground, but when the KOA opportunity came around, land won over the sea.

The carpet-cleaning business owners were also lifelong campers and boaters. They were looking for a fun and family friendly business, and both felt a either a marina or campground would suit them. "We went to a KOA seminar, and they hooked me," Barbara said. Their two children have worked in the business, and their youngest, Jimmy, often tells them he plans to take over the family business someday.

Fishing, boating and camping are among their favorite activities, but hiking and four-wheeling entertain the family, as well. "We're strange," Barbara said. "We own a campground but then pack up and still go camping on the weekends."

Barbara said the best part about their Manchester campground is the Wow! factor when guests drive up. "All of it is so clean and pretty that when guests pull in they look around and say, 'Wow!'" she said.

The Dales say campers can expect to be treated like family. "We are down home country kind of folks who are a friendly, nice, good Christian family," she said.

Oh My, There's Nothing Here!
