Congrats to Our KOA Parks: Uniontown, PA & Homerville, OH!

We would like to say, "Congratulations," to our General Managers Terri Todak and Becky Barnhouse and the entire AOS team!

Our KOA parks in Uniontown PA and Homerville Ohio were recently honored with both Founders Award and Presidents Award at the 2021 KOA annual convention.

Why is this such a big deal? Read below:


The KOA President’s Award is proudly presented to KOA campgrounds that excel in providing great camping facilities and consistently high levels of guest service. Chosen by KOA’s camping guests through satisfaction surveys and KOA’s own stringent quality inspection, recipients of the President’s Award are dedicated to providing great KOA camping.


Dave Drum, founder of Kampgrounds of America, was an extraordinary visionary and dreamer. The recipients of KOA’s premiere achievement, the KOA Founder’s Award, share Dave’s dream of providing the highest quality camping facilities while exceeding KOA guests’ expectations. As leaders in outdoor hospitality, KOA Founder’s Award recipients embody Dave’s vision of a KOA Nation providing excellence for generations of campers.

Recognizing KOA campgrounds for quality and excellence, this year KOA is pleased to award many of our locations with awards for the upcoming year. Campgrounds that qualify for our Founder’s Award also receive the President’s Award for their outstanding service an commitment to our campers.

Thank you to all team members who worked hard this year to make it happen. Like they say, "It ain't bragging if it's true."
