Meet Your Hosts

Philip Family

Quiet Country Setting, NO Planes, or Trains. Easy on, off access. Convient to World Famous Mayo Clinic.


Service has been in the Philip family's blood for a long time. Before they became owners of the campground in 1990, Roger and Barbara owned a service station for 20 years.

"We were looking for a business that was a little less stressful, and that was seasonal," said Barb. "It's great to work now with happy campers who bring back their friends!"

When they aren't running their own campground, the Philip family will likely be found - believe it or not - camping, and helping other KOA Campgrounds!! So if you ever need help Call them!!

"We do lots of camping at other campgrounds," Barb said. "But we still love our campground the best. It's so great to be out there amongst all of the trees and grass."
