MARI BRYANS – Campground Manager
There are many amazing things that can be said about Mari and why she was hired to be the Campground Manager, but the main reasons are her experience and knowledge in the tourism/campground industry.
Mari grew up locally on the Riverwood campground where she discovered her passion for tourism and later turned that passion into a career by running her own campgrounds. Mari and her husband purchased the Brighton KOA campground in 2006, which they owned and operated for the next 9 years. The campground was in ill repair when they purchased it, but Mari was able to turn the campground into a perennial Founders Award Winner.
So, with her experience, reputation for excellent customer service, and relevant knowledge, we are looking forward to Mari’s leadership throughout the campground build and launch.
