Kampgrounds of America Inc. recently honored Astoria/Seaside KOA Manager Patti Simmons with a Gold rating for the campground's outstanding facility and operation.

KOA quality assurance advisers visit each campground every year to conduct a 600-point review, evaluating everything from the entrance sign to bathroom cleanliness. To achieve the highest rating of Gold, the campground must score high in all areas and surpass the standards of the KOA Quality Assurance program.
