Chautauqua Lake KOA Receives Perfect Rating In Camping Directory

DEWITTVILLE – Bill and Anita Perry, owners of Chautauqua Lake KOA, a 246-site, full-service campground located in Dewittville, report that they have received a perfect rating for their campground in the 2014 Good Sam RV Travel Guide & Campground Directory. Their rating for facilities, bathrooms and recreation is the highest rating that can be achieved for their campground management and operations in the Good Sam system.

According to Good Sam, Chautauqua Lake KOA was one of only 101 parks across the country to attain a perfect rating, representing approximately 1 percent of the privately owned parks in the nation included in the 2014 directory. Each year, 28 husband-and-wife teams take to the road in their RVs to inspect RV parks across North America for the directory, with education by a Standardization and Training team to ensure all are following the same criteria.

There are three categories that are rated, including: completeness of facilities; cleanliness and physical characteristics of restrooms and showers, and visual appeal and environmental quality.

Upon receiving notice of their perfect rating, Bill Perry said, “We’ve worked hard to provide a great facility for our customers with many improvements over the years, and we’re pleased to have our campground recognized this year by Good Sam with a perfect rating. We’ll always keep striving to offer the best camping experience we can.”

Perry went on to note that the campground has been highly rated with Good Sam Club directory and with the Woodalls directory – now out of print – for more than 12 years. The park was also accorded the Founders Award by Kampgrounds of America for 2014, which is the highest award that can be presented in the KOA park system, and was one of two parks in the nation to achieve 600 out of 600 points in the internal KOA rating system for 2014.

The park will be opening May 1 branded as a KOA Holiday Park. For more information, visit
