Circle Pines KOA wins major awards during annual convention

BILLINGS, Mont. - Circle Pines KOA of Williams has been awarded the 2010 KOA President's and Founders Awards by Kampgrounds of America, the world's largest system of family-friendly campgrounds. The awards were presented recently at KOA's annual International Convention in Savannah, Ga. Circle Pines is owned and operated by Sharon Fox.

The KOA President's Award is presented annually to campgrounds that receive high 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, is given to those campgrounds that attained the very top scores in both customer service and the Quality Review. KOA surveys hundreds of thousands of campers each year regarding their KOA camping experience.

"The KOA campground owners who receive these two top awards are truly the best of the best in camping in North America," said Pat Hittmeier, president of Kampgrounds of America Inc. "It's special because these awards come, in large part, from our campers. We at KOA are all grateful that campers feel they can trust us with the valuable time they spend outdoors with their families and friends."
