Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association LogoPennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has proclaimed the month of May as “Recreation Vehicle and Camping Month” for the 23rd straight year.

“The unique sites, history and culture of Pennsylvania can be discovered by the entire family from the comfort and convenience of recreational vehicles,” he said. “I encourages all citizens to pursue their passions and escape with their families on the road across the farthest reaches of our state.”

RVing and camping continues to be a strong force for Pennsylvania’s economy. From campgrounds that extend to the outermost corners of the state to RV dealerships, suppliers, distributors and service providers, Pennsylvania is an example of how people embrace the joys and benefits of RVing.

As host to the industry’s largest industry and retail RV show in the country at the Giant Center in Hershey, (www.largestRVshow.com), Pennsylvania introduces consumers to the latest products the RV industry has to offer. Visitors are even welcomed into Pennsylvania with seven statewide billboards directing them to the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association (PRVCA) website.

Rebecca Lenington, PRVCA executive vice president, noted, “In conjunction with the governor’s proclamation, PRVCA is kicking off its annual Open House campaign. The goal of the Open House campaign is to direct consumers to their local campgrounds and dealerships and expose them to the many benefits of RV ownership and the freedom that traveling by RV provides.” To view the campgrounds and RV dealerships in your area, visit www.prvca.org and click on “Member Listings.”

Not only does the RV industry offer a great way to discover Pennsylvania, but it also offers career opportunities and apprenticeships to the many campgrounds and RV dealerships across the state of Pennsylvania. People can even become a trained RV technician from the comfort and convenience of their home with online instruction. For more details, visit www.prvca.org and click on “Training.”

Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) has awarded the Meadville KOA Campground in Pennsylvania with the 2011 President’s Award, presented Nov. 8 at KOA’s annual convention in Las Vegas.

The KOA President’s Award is presented annually to campgrounds that receive high scores in customer service from their campers and also receive top scores in KOA’s annual quality review. KOA surveys hundreds of thousands of campers each year regarding their KOA camping experience.

“Our campers play a key role in helping us select the very best KOA campgrounds to receive these awards,” said KOA President Pat Hittmeier. “This year, as we celebrate KOA’s 50th birthday, these awards take on a special meaning. To be one of the very best in a longstanding, iconic company like KOA really is a unique honor that this special KOA campground can share with its campers.”

KOA was founded in 1962 on the banks of the Yellowstone River in Billings, Mont. To find out more about the Meadville KOA Campground, or any of the other 472 KOAs in the U.S. or Canada, visit www.koa.com.
