Area campground receives KOA awards


— The Checotah/Lake Eufaula West KOA Campground has been awarded the 2013 KOA President’s and Founder’s Awards by Kampgrounds of America Inc. The awards were presented Nov. 17 at KOA’s annual International Convention.

The KOA awards are presented annually to campgrounds that receive the highest scores in customer service from their campers, and also receive top scores in KOA’s annual Quality Review.

The KOA Founder’s Award, named in honor of Dave Drum, who founded KOA on the banks of the Yellowstone River in Billings, Mont., in 1962.

“Our KOA owners rely on the feedback they receive from our camping guests to make almost instant changes and improvements to their operations,” said KOA President Pat Hittmeier. “KOA owners do a wonderful job listening to our campers, and I’m proud to be able to recognize the best among the best with the KOA President’s and Founder’s Awards.”
