Coloma / St. Joseph KOA Holiday Recreation
Our family-friendly campground provides the perfect setting for you to relax at your campsite, enjoy resort-style amenities, take a walk around the park enjoying nature, meet new friends. Planned activities and themed weekends are scheduled throughout the camping season.
Gem Mining Sluice *** Expanded in 2023 ***
Pan for unique gems in our own mining sluice, fun for kids of all ages. . This activity was introduced in 2022 and due to its immediate success we are expanding the sluice to provide more spaces and new items for even greater opportunities of fun. A variety of bag sizes are available for purchase in the General Store
Our property features a fishing pond (catch & release) in the middle of our "pocket park" with relaxing areas to cast a line. Stocked with blue gill each season, it's a perfect place to teach kids how to fish or just enjoy an afternoon passing time to see if you can catch "the big one." Telling fish stories at night by the campfire is an extra benefit of the experience you will find and memories you'll make.
Located in Michigan's southwestern-most county in the state, our wooded property rests in an area with wetlands and agricultural fields that an estimated 353 bird species call home. In fact, the diverse medley of habitats and proximity to Lake Michigan are perfect for bird watching. While staying with us, each day you can enjoy the sights and sounds of robins, red-winged black birds, cardinals, blue jays, great egrets, mallard ducks and more.
Wooded Nature Trail
Made available in 2020, guests can enjoy hiking, bird watching or just stretching their legs without needing the leave the campground. Walk along wooded trails that have been carved into 10 acres of our property that also feature our ponds, and the east ridge over looking the Paw Paw River down below.
Enjoy our Pool
Enjoying our in-ground heated pool is truly one of the biggest reasons that make your time with us not just a camping weekend, but a KOA weekend! (Open throughout the summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend).
There is nothing quite like taking off your shoes and climbing to the top of our big bouncer. Except of course actually bouncing on it and trying to touch the sky! How high can you jump?
Once you learn, you never forget right? Unless of course you try steering our awesome banana bikes for the first time. These fantastic rentals will let you 'peel' out in style and cruise the campground.
Not everyone possesses the same level of skill as Tiger Woods. For those people, there is miniature golf. Here at the Coloma / St Joseph KOA you can enjoy this treasured sport with all your friends.
Is it possible to go camping without playing horseshoes? The short answer is yes but why would you want to? Challenge your friends to an exciting game on your next visit to the Coloma / St Joseph KOA.
You've heard people say there is a kid in all of us right? There is no doubt your children will have a blast on our playground but, unfortunately, our playground equipment only comes in one size. Sorry parents.
Barrel Train Rides
All Aboard!!! Barrel train rides are given to children, and those who are children at heart, each weekend in the summer (usually Saturday evenings). Rides are free and start in front of the General Store.
In this competitive game, two players arrange their "pool" balls within arms reach of their end. A cue ball is then rolled in an attempt to knock the other players balls into the tray.Once the first player has knocked all of the other player's balls into the tray the second player has one more role to try to knock the remaining balls of player one into the tray (this is known as the mercy roll). If the player two is successful, then one less ball is placed on the each end and the game repeated. The cycle is repeated until a winner is determined.
Gaga is a fast paced, high energy sport played in an octagonal pit. The more players the better! Dubbed a kinder gentler version of dodge ball, the game is played with a soft foam ball, and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping, while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the knees.
Pancake Breakfast - Care Camps (Charity)
Mother's Day, Memorial Day weekend, Father's Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day weekend is made special with a pancake charity breakfast. Take a break and let us do all the cooking as you wake up to all you can eat pancakes, sausage, juice or coffee made by us. Minimum Donation for adults is $5, and children $3 with all proceeds going to support Care Camps, which is a 501c3 organization that provides kids with cancer with a medically-specialized, camping experience.
Healing doesn't just happen in hospitals. Letting kids with cancer be kids is something we care deeply about! Join us in supporting this great cause!
Family Fun Zone
Helping you connect with each other is a cornerstone of our offerings. This outdoor, interactive recreational space will cause you to forget the iPhone in your pocket while you challenge your family or friends to a game of Corn Hole, ladder jacks, Air Sport, or a competitive game of giant chess, checkers or Connect Four!
Pickelball ***New in 2023***
One of the most popular sports today, enjoying playing pickle ball whether you're a pro or wanting to try it out for the first time.
