KOA: Pa. KOA named Campground of the Year

BILLINGS, Mont. — Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA Holiday is owned and operated by Robert and Elisa Prato and has been part of the 500-campground KOA system since 1979. Originally owned by Robert’s father, Carmen Prato, it was love that turned him from son to owner.

Robert Prato met his wife, Elisa, at his father’s KOA campground when she was 18 and he was 21, at site 32.

“I had just graduated high school and went camping in Pennsylvania for the summer before I went to college,” Elisa said. “He followed me home. I went camping and the rest is history.”
