Campground Owner Celebrates 35 Years

BROOKSVILLE - At the height of the summer during his first year as owner of a brand new KOA campground, Bob McGlashen thought he might have made a mistake. He couldn't understand why, during what was the peak of tourist season in his native Michigan, his newly opened Frontier Campground was all but deserted.

"I quickly found out that people down here don't go camping when it's hot," said McGlashen. "From June through September, I don't think I had more than a couple dozen customers."
