The Indianapolis KOA Holiday, owned and operated by David and Lori Vaughan, was named the Kampgrounds of America Campground of the Year for 2022 on Wednesday.

The award was announced during KOA’s annual International Convention in Baton Rouge, La.

The campground, located just 20 miles from the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, has been owned by the Vaughan family for the past 17 years. During that time, the Vaughans have continuously improved the park with the single-minded purpose of providing the best possible outdoor experience for their camping guests.

The campground now has 150 full hookup RV sites, as well as Deluxe Cabins and premium tent sites designed to take advantage of the park’s oak, maple and sycamore trees. There’s even a horse stable.

The centerpiece of the park is an innovative hybrid pool/water park feature that allows families to enjoy both the relaxation of a shallow pool along with the fun of a water park.

The Vaughans have been early adopters of nearly all Kampgrounds of America initiatives to improve the camping experience, according to the company. They were among the first to invest in KOA Patio Sites, which provide campers with a 250-square-foot, hard-surface patio along with upgraded patio furniture and grills.

“Our mantra in Indianapolis has always been to upgrade, upgrade, upgrade,” said David Vaughan. Their efforts have grown camper nights by 6 percent and increased registration revenues by more than 57 percent, KOA said.
