Meet Your Hosts

Troy and Penny Crosson

Hip Hip Ouray!

The Ouray KOA would like to welcome Troy and Penny Crosson as the new hosts for this campground! This couple has been in the people serving business for over 38 years.
Troy grew up in a family of builders. Having worked under the wings of his father in construction at the age of 13, groomed him to be a commercial contractor and later a general contractor of a variety of projects, from apartments, churches, funeral home, large box stores, to commercial development projects. His last two commercial projects include The International Market Place, Honolulu Hawaii, and The DOCO multi-use center, of the Sacramento Kings, consisting of retail stores, hotel & condos.
Troy's creative mind and gift in communication inspires anyone who is around him to dream big and desire to do more both professionally as well as personally.
Listen to Troy's personal story on this link. http://www.pennycrosson.net/troys-story
Troy has traveled around the world since the early 90's participating in humanitarian mission projects, such as building handicap playgrounds for orphanages in third world countries and vetting recipients of funds, making sure the money was used as promised. Troy's heart is bigger than his creative mind. He seeks to make the world a better place for those who are in his reach.
Taking on a 38 acre campground that needs some attention would overwhelm most, but this undertaking is a playground for this innovative mind.

Penny has a creative background in cosmetology, as hair and make-up artist since 1980. Troy has always been her biggest cheerleader as she found herself painting art on walls and turning her kids' rooms into any childhood dream room, before HGTV hit the scene. Her cosmetology evolved into interior decorating, expanding her beauty clientele into decorating and interior design projects.
Cosmetologists often find themselves as an un-assumed counselor to those who sit in their chair. Penny was inspired in 2004 to write an educational & inspirational make-up book. A book that she now offers as a FREE download  http://www.pennycrosson.net/shop . Enjoy this 200 page, easy to read, down to earth, inspiring delight. 
Penny loves to create visual appeal through beauty, fashion, interior design, exterior design & life's special events. Owning and operating an event venue for many years was yet another creative outlet for Penny to serve others. Creating an unexpected pleasant surprise is her mission in everything she touches. Color & design cause such emotional reactions and she is excited to put her talent to this campground. Throughout Penny's life she has learned to be a great host and friend to all who visit.

Troy and Penny, as well as the new staff, are excited to serve you as their guest and are looking forward to help create an unforgettable experience for you and your loved ones while visiting The Mountain Top Destination, Ouray KOA. 

Welcome,
Troy and Penny Crosson
