Xanterra Travel Collection’s operations span the country — from the lush wilderness of Ohio’s state parks to the stark desert of Death Valley. The company’s legacy of hospitality leadership extends more than a century, back to when the Fred Harvey Company began providing quality hotels and restaurants for weary travelers making their way West.
Today, the Fred Harvey Company is known as Xanterra Travel Collection, the largest national and state park concessioner in the United States.
Xanterra properties offer a wide range of recreational facilities and experiences. From conference centers with golf courses, tennis courts and spas, to historic park lodges and cabins, Xanterra facilities are ideal for spending quality time with family or getting back to nature with hiking, fishing, camping or simply exploring wilderness and natural settings.
The company’s 8,200 employees operate 33 hotels and lodges with more than 5,000 guest rooms, 53 retail stores, 66 restaurants, three marinas, five golf courses, and 1,800 campsites within national and state parks.
