Meet the faces behind #Barrie's #tourism industry!
BUSINESS NAME: Barrie KOA Campground
ESTABLISHED: 1971, present owners since 1986
OWNERS: Amy, Tony, Aaron Raposo
BARRIE KOA’S CLAIM TO FAME: Family atmosphere; guests return again and again and now the next generations camps too.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE BARRIE TO OPEN A BUSINESS IN? We were young, in university and ready to own a business. #KOA combined our studies; recreation & outdoors. Barrie's location, beauty, proximity to nature, and space made it an easy choice.
WHAT AMENITIES DO YOU OFFER? With 150+ sites & 21 cabins we have lots of activities & amenities to keep busy. Campers can relax by pools, hike, fish in the pond or participate in planned activities often tied to a theme. We have over 20 themed weekends, a favourite being Halloween, so popular we added an extra weekend in October.
CAN PEOPLE “CAMP” WITHOUT A CAMPER AT BARRIE KOA?
A great way is to stay in a cozy or deluxe cabin. Having roofed cabins allows guests to enjoy an outdoor experience without an RV or tent. We have all they need to enjoy a campfire, roast marshmallows and share stories.
WHERE IS THE FARTHEST PEOPLE HAVE VISITED FROM?
The most prevalent are from New Zealand, Australia, UK, Netherlands & Germany as they rent motorhomes to travel in.
IS THERE A UNIQUE GROUP OR EVENT THAT STANDS OUT?
One group has had a family reunion here for over 16 years. A“Texas Reunion” is also a unique event by 2 campers who spend summers with us & winters in Texas. Their snowbird friends from Canada & US come for a day of food, fun, music and unique rendition of Star-Spangled Banner.
WHERE ARE YOUR FAVOURITE PLACES IN BARRIE?
Sundays are the quietest so when we can the Barrie waterfront is our destination of choice. Close proximity to beach & playground offers great opportunity for family time. We frequent a variety of restaurants within walking distance too.
Barrie KOA Holiday IS OPEN FOR THE SEASON, DAILY UNTIL OCTOBER 15, 2017. #BarrieLocalsKnow
