The King Family

Experience Genuine Ozark Hospitality with all the amenities and conveniences that pamper today's camper!

A lifetime of camping - from tents to trailers to RVs - made Springfield KOA owners, Scott and Diane King, fall in love with the campground industry. In 2004, the Kings purchased their campground and left their careers as managers in various fields. "When we camped we met a lot of owners and felt this was a nice way to make a living," Scott said.

They worked with a campground broker to find the best park for their family. Leaving California, being close to a good-sized city, and access to an airport were key factors. And they were confident they wanted to buy a KOA campground. "Everything came together just right, and when we saw this one, we decided this was it," Scott said.

Scott said the best part of their business is the repeat business Springfield KOA gets. "Not to sound sappy, but we have become friends with so many of our guests," he said. "We get to know them and how many kids they have and what they do for a living. We have the time to spend with our guests and we do it."

The Kings challenge their staff to remember customer's names. They also strive to do personal things for their campers like put a rose and poem on their RV handles for the holidays.

Besides running their campground, the Kings have an interest in pursuing real estate, and both have their real estate license. "When we had full time jobs we always wanted to do that but never had the time," Scott said.
