The 75-acre Ventura Ranch KOA in Santa Paula is a great place to give luxury camping a try. You'll find yourself surrounded by fragrant lemon orchards, roaming wild peacocks and miles of nature trails. There's also a jumping pillow, a pedal car racetrack, two zip lines, a climbing wall and a soon-to-open swimming pool.
And I hear congratulations are in order for owners Scott Cory and Steven Bitter, winners of Kampgrounds of America's 2014 Rising Star Award. The prize is decreed upon campground owners who exhibit the traits of seasoned campground professionals even though they have fewer than five years in KOA North America's 486-campground system.
"This award is so well deserved by Scott and Steve," said KOA President Pat Hittmeier. "They are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to what campers will see next. They've taken what was a campground in disrepair and turned it into a thriving business."
