Blueberry Season: The season typically starts around July 4th through Labor Day. We are the only KOA that has an active farm within the confines of the campground. We produce 3 varieties of berries: Blue Crop, Jersey & Elliot. We offer U-pick to campers as well as to the public. Pricing is dependent on the market. If you would like to pick please ask at the front desk for current pricing information and an approved picking container. We also take blueberry orders at check in or anytime during your stay if you want us to do the work. If you would like to schedule your stay around blueberry season, feel free to give us a call.
We want our campers to enjoy a stress free, family fun atmosphere to create those lasting memories.
"We knew we wanted a family business where everyone including the kids could participate and use their own personal gifts and talents," said Libby. "KOA was a perfect fit because of our love for camping and the opportunity to spend family time together."
Their philosophy on family is what makes the campground so inviting. "We have always felt that spending time together as a family is important," said Libby. "We want our campers to enjoy a stress free, family fun atmosphere to create those lasting memories."
One activity that families can enjoy on the campground is picking blueberries that are ready to be picked from July to early September. "We have over 4 acres of u-pick blueberries on the campground," said Tom. "South Haven area is famous for its quality of blueberries and has come to be known as the Blueberry Capitol."
Before entering the camping industry, Tom was an engineer and Libby was a very busy stay at home mom and physical therapist.
In their spare time, Libby loves to garden, while Tom enjoys hunting. Tom is in the state record book for his 6 point deer that is showcased in the campground lodge, along with his elk and his brother's state record 33 point non-typical deer. As you walk the campground you will see many of Libby's landscaping projects, she loves flowers.
UPDATE: 10 years have past since we opened the "doors" on the Covert/South Haven KOA and many of you have seen our 4 kids grow up right before your eyes. Well we can tell you it has been a busy last year. All 4 children have gotten married between Aug. 2015 and June 2016. So we are now the proud parents of 4 additional children. Wondering if it might be a Guinness record for most sibling weddings in a 10 month period of time.
