Sagadahoc Bay Campground

Sagadahoc Bay Campground in Georgetown, Maine, has been a hive of activity since representatives from NBC’s“The Today Show” called a little over a week ago informing them that Al Roker would like to shoot part of the July 24 morning program from the park, according to park owners Eric and Patricia Kosalka.

Patricia Kosalka told Woodall’s Campground Management, sister publication to RVBusiness, that she has done numerous interviews with news outlets and that the phones have been ringing constantly at the park since the announcement.

“This has changed my life forever,” she noted. “At 71-years-old this is the most exciting thing that has happened to me since we put the campground in 20 years ago.”

Roker is set to appear in an RV on July 23 and stay the night at the park before doing his TV segment on the morning of July 24.

“They had looked at a ton of places before selecting us,” Kosalka explained. “Someone who had stayed here previously mentioned us and they looked at my website and Facebook page, saw our pictures and thought ‘Those are really pretty pictures’.”

She noted that one of things campers like to do at her campground is dig up clams in the sand since her park borders the Sagadahoc Bay, which feeds into the Atlantic Ocean.

“It really is a unique place,” Kosalka said. “Roker wants to do all kinds of things while he is here, he wants to go kayaking, clamming and lobstering. So, I have been busy lining that all up.”
