WHETHER YOU ARE LOOKING TO ESCAPE THE CITY, HAVE KIDDOS IN TOW, OR YOU ARE A ROAMING RETIREE, WE ARE HERE TO WELCOME YOU! Our family-owned & operated, nationally-recognized campground is the closest KOA to beautiful Lake Michigan in southwest Michigan and puts you just minutes away from several beaches in the St. Joseph and South Haven area. A wooded setting with mature trees throughout the park provide shade on hot summer days, and our family-friendly atmosphere makes us the place to be!
Paddlers will enjoy being centrally located to public access points along the Paw Paw River Water Trail.
