What’s New for Campers in Western PA at Meadville KOA for 2014!

We finished 2013 on a high note, thanks to you, our wonderful campers!  We were again awarded the KOA President’s Award, based on your guest ratings.  While we were just a couple of points shy of receiving our Founder’s Award, we saw clearly that Meadville KOA is headed in the right direction, and that our campers acknowledged that.  So we thank you for your continued patronage, patience, and outstanding Guest Reviews!  As always, the awards we receive from you, our camping families, are the ones that mean the most to us!  We’ll continue to strive to meet and exceed your expectations!

We have some great new events and returning favorites in our themed weekend lineup.  This summer, we’ll have a Cinco De Mayo Weekend in May, Civil War Living History Weekend in June, a new Knights and Princess Weekend in July, Jungle Terry is back in August, and a tailgater Weekend in September!  But that’s not all, we’re featuring a kiddies weekend for children under 12 one weekend each month, just like we have the last two years, which will feature our free kiddie train ride.  And because you requested it, we’re playing BINGO on Care Camps Weekend, Holiday weekends, and on BINGO, BINGO, BINGO Weekend September 13, and of course, we use BINGO as a backup on rainy weekends too!  And of course, we have our Pumpkinfest and Halloween Weekends returning in late September!  We hope you’re checking our themed weekends (http://meadvillekoa.com/themed-weekend-events/) and make our events calendar part of your calendar so you don’t miss any of the fun!

We’ve redesigned our website for the 2014 season!  So if you haven’t been on our website in a while, please check out our new look at http://www.meadvillekoa.com/!  We hope you’ll comment and let us know how we did!  We love to hear from you!

We’ve upgraded our Wi-Fi for 2014, by adding all new equipment for improved service and new antennas for better distribution.  It should met all your needs for light surfing, Facebook or other social media, and emailing.  We’ve tried to improve our Wi-Fi, because in our 2013 survey, you told us that service was important to you.  In fact, it was number two in our survey!  We hope you’ll find better service on your next visit.  If you ever have a service issue, please come see us at the office and report it, so we can help you.  As Always, our Wi-Fi is a complimentary service, so you don’t have to pay extra for that.        

Verizon is working on improving their Cell Phone Services in our area!  Verizon has added new towers between Meadville and Titusville.  We also know from our 2013 survey, that this was the #1 item you listed as an utility that you couldn’t be without.  We’re delighted, that Verizon is working on their service here.  We thank you again for your patience!  We will continue to push Verizon for improved services for you here, at Meadville KOA.

Also coming in 2014 – cable TV!  That’s right, we’re cabling the park!  Now you can camp and watch your favorite shows, won’t miss any of the games, and can keep the kids entertained if the weather is less than outdoors compatible!  And yes, this was #3 on your list in our survey last year!

Last, but certainly not least, we’ve come up with some great discounts for you!  We have a created a frequent camper program that is new for 2014!  You get 15% off your second visit, and 20% off your third visit and additional visits!  These discounts are good on any non-holiday and non-special event weekends, and on campsites only.  (We’re sorry, but we could not include cabins in this discount program at this time.)  We hope this will give a reason to visit us more often in 2014! 

So, we’re hoping that with great new activities and our annual favorites, a new website, Verizon installing more towers, improved Wi-Fi services, cable TV, and great discounts, that those are all great reasons to spend a lot of your summer at Meadville KOA Campground! 

We hope to see you soon!  Until then, hang in there, camping season is almost here!
