Hey campers, we've taken our lodging to a new level! Come in and take a look at our Deluxe Cabins with screen rooms!Known as the friendliest campground in South Florida, we love to welcome new guests! Our staff and seasonal residents are quick to introduce themselves and include new campers in activities," says Anita Mangels, manager of the Naples/Marco Island, Florida KOA.Anita goes on to say, "I want our guests to feel like old friends. We are excited to welcome them to our home and want them to be as comfortable as possible during their stay with us. We do our best to assure that our guests have a memorable experience.” Anita took over the GM duties from her husband Ted in 2017, they came to KOA through unique circumstances. They were tired of living in the cold of Minnesota and decided to pack it up and just do a cross country road trip and figure out what they wanted to do next. The only rule was it needed to be in a warmer climate. They hit the road for four months of traveling around the country, often staying at KOA campgrounds because they could count on the consistently high quality and cleanliness. “You can't beat camping for meeting unique and interesting people”, says Anita. "And traveling in a tent keeps one in touch with the simpler side of things. We had plenty of opportunities to talk to the work campers along the way and decided the campground business was just what we were looking for. One of our stops along the journey was the Naples/Marco Island KOA, and the rest is history, as they say!"Anita and Ted still pursue the things they love most, which include day trips to the beach for sun and shelling, cruising, interesting new restaurants and getting together with friends and family.
