Okeechobee KOA wins 2022 President's Award


 OKEECHOBEE --Every year Kampgrounds of America (KOA) collects guest surveys from more than a quarter-million campers across the country. This important guest feedback, along with results of an annual inspection process, helps determine which of the over 500 KOA campgrounds across North America will earn the coveted set of awards – The Founder's Award and the President's Award.

This year, Okeechobee KOA has received the 2022 KOA President’s Award for providing high quality camping facilities while exceeding KOA guests’ expectations. As a 2022 winner, Okeechobee KOA is dedicated to offering a great camping experience and consistently delivering high levels of guest service.

This tropical vacation campground features a 9-hole golf course, driving range and putting green. The nearby Okeechobee Lake provides plenty of boating and fishing in what is known as the “Big O,” Florida’s largest freshwater lake. The social calendar is filled with parades, parties, seasonal holiday celebrations -- from Mardi Gras festivities to a Christmas decorating contest and when relaxing, guests enjoy one of the three onsite pools. 

On Jan. 21, 2021 Okeechobee KOA became part of Encore RV Resorts, a collection of high quality RV resorts across the Sunbelt. 

Encore RV Resorts is a network of more than 200 affiliated RV resorts and campgrounds nationwide, including Thousand Trails locations. The Thousand Trails and Encore team has been in business for more than 50 years and its RV resorts and campgrounds are widely recognized for their unmatched locations and customer service. In 2020 alone, more than 75 Encore and Thousand Trails affiliated resorts and campgrounds received the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Award and 15 locations achieved the superior TripAdvisor Hall of Fame status. The property remained a KOA brand.
