When you’ve owned a campground for 32 years, you’ve likely learned a thing or two about providing a great camping experience.
Barbara and Bill Olendorf and daughter Jeannifer Olendorf Mason have spent the past three decades slowly turning their little KOA in the heart of South Carolina’s Low Country into one of the jewels of the Kampgrounds of America system.
Their Point South/Yemassee, South Carolina KOA Journey campground was recently named the KOA Campground of the Year for 2016. The KOA, located at 14 Campground Road in Yemassee, was selected for the honor from more than 490 KOA locations throughout the United States and Canada.
The Olendorfs were living in Chicago in 1983 when Bill decided he’d had enough of winter, and set out in search of a business they could call their own.
They found the Point South/Yemassee KOA Journey, and decided to turn it into a “must stop” location for folks on their way to and from Florida.
