New visitors center opens at campground

The Craig Campground, formerly the KOA campground, is located at 2800 E. U.S. Highway 40 in Craig.

Owner Patt McCaffrey said many customers simply were stopping by for directions. Hence, she made some changes and redesigned and remodeled the inside of the campground office.

Using all local contractors, she changed the flow of the building to be more customer-friendly, allowing for better customer service.

Recently, McCaffrey hired Melody Villard to be the new director of Craig Campground, which is now offering visitors center services at the same location.

To find out more information, call 824-5105, or visit the location on Highway 40. You also can visit the campsite’s Web site,, or the visitors center Web site at
