We care about the safety and well-being of all of our guests. We do not want any of our guests to cause or become the victim of a motor vehicle accident that results in serious injury or death here at the Watkins Glen KOA. Once an incident occurs we cannot turn back the clock, but we can all work together to prevent a devastating accident.

Meet Your Hosts
Our goal is that you have a legendary camping experience, making us the standard by which you measure all others.Paul and Cam Friesen enjoyed camping with their kids over the years, and now enjoy the lifestyle of KOA ownership.
They purchased their KOA in June 1992, moving from the Chicago area. "Paul and I like working together. And when our kids were still at home it was nice being together as a family," notes Cam.
Prior to moving to the KOA Kampground business, Cam was a full-time Mom for their four kids, and Paul was a manager in computer information systems for an office supply company. They enjoyed camping in Wisconsin and Minnesota prior to heading east.
Now that their children are grown and the grandchildren have starting arriving, they have become avid RVers and enjoy travel throughout the year.
"We like the campers who come here," Cam added, and they do their best to keep the customers happy.
Paul designed and built a creative Pirate Ship playground, using 100% recycled plastic lumber, which is safer for the kids, Cam noted. "It's huge. It's 44 feet long, and has a couple of decks and slides and walkways. The kids just have a ball on there."
Another project was even larger. They built a 6,900 square foot indoor recreational building in 2005, complete with large indoor pool, spa, and fitness room.
They continue to add amenities to the campground every year.
