Windy Acres was the brainchild of Merrill Witherell who
Opened the first phase of the campground around 1970. It consisted
Of about 30 campsites, an open pavilion and bathrooms. In 1985 he completed a major expansion of the campground increasing the campground to 137 sites with 20 amp power and water hookups.
A safari field made by converting a former apple orchard for group camping was also added. He also added a bathroom building in the middle of the campground and another pavilion with bathrooms in the upper portion of the park. In 1990 he sold the campground to Fran & Nancy McClure who with their children brought new life to the campground. Over the next 12 years they upgraded some of the park to 30 amp power added daily activities, bingo, and other activities found in the resort style campgrounds of the 90's. In April 2002 the campground was purchased by The Kelsey Family who immediately began adding their touch to the campground. Over the next six years they added two swimming pools, playgrounds, a game room, camp store, and a laundry area. Major upgrades to the infrastructure of the campground also took place. The whole electrical system was upgraded to handle today's modern RV's as well as the safari group area was upgraded with 30 amp and 50 amp sites. A commercial kitchen and snack bar was added to the upper pavilion. In the fall of 2008 we were approved as a KOA Franchise and opened as a Northampton/Springfield KOA in the spring of 2009. The bathrooms were renovated with tile floors, new fixtures and FREE hot showers. In 2010 we added our first Deluxe Cabins and began a major renovation to the front area of the campground. 2011 saw the completion of our new 70 foot pull through full hookup sites as well as upgrading 20 more back in sites to Full Hookup Sites. More Deluxe Cabins were added. In 2012 we added cable TV to most of the sites as well as improved our appearance. In 2015 a handful of water and electric sites were renovated and upgraded into our Deluxe Pull thru sites that are over 90 feet long all Big Rig friendly. 2017 was the year that our second oldest son Michael moved from Phoenix, Arizona where he was running the front desk of a beautiful Marriott Resort. When joining the family business he is bringing the next generation into the family tradition! He has brought in some GREAT new changes around the park, to our social media, and overall marketing. He is always willing to chat with campers and get their feedback on what should be improved next as he has many ideas and plans for future improvements for the coming years. 2018 brought the introduction of our Deluxe Pet Friendly sites that offer some great amenities like chairs and swings on site but, most importantly is the 10 X 10 on site off leash dog area for the furry friends that join us for the family camping trip. Also added this season was the mining sluice, to site pizza delivery, and updating a handful of tent sites. Please say Hi to Michael as he can be seen driving around in the firetruck or on most Sunday mornings cooking up breakfast! Come stop by and meet the Kelsey's and become part of this exciting KOA's future family traditions.
