This is our 3rd yr coming to the Coloma KOA never had problems. This yr we had several problems to which the staff were no help, even lied to. very disappointed with our stay, we had loved this place being quite and peaceful. The staff fell waaaay short this time. Hope they change there ways.

We had a wonderful time. Many things to do. Washrooms/showers were very clean. Would come back again.

When we stay in KOA Coloma it feels like a second home. It is a little noisy with road work on 196 but it is not their fault.. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would like to see some fish in the pond for grandkids. I will stay there again, because I like the staff and location.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you feel at home while staying with us, and look forward to seeing you again. We are also looking forward to the completion of the highway construction season, with less noise from the nearby traffic. Our pond, while serene, is only an average of four feet deep, and unfortunately, is not able to sustain fish life without very costly measures being undertaken.

Nice campground. Friendly staff. Convenient location

Took the family to this KOA so that we could explore St. Joseph’s and Saugatuck. Of the three campgrounds we stayed at this summer, this one was definitely the best. Kids loved the pool and hot tub and the mini golf and jumping pillow were a hit. Would definitely go back!

Because we know you have choices where you can stay, we aim to meet and exceed your expectations. We're also glad to know we're surpassing our competition as well!

The check in was smooth and the park seemed very respectful and quiet. We didn't use many of the facilities as we were basically an overnighter - in and out the next morning. The parks roads were a bit on the narrow side for the larger sized rigs - we had to be careful to maneuver around parked cars and limbs that had grown out over the summer months into the road way - otherwise a 5 star.

Very nice place, well maintained and friendly staff. Loved our site. I would recomend grills for the fire pits. Bring your own if you want to cook on your fire pit.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are pleased you enjoyed your time with us. Thanks also for the recommendation for grills on the fire rings. Getting new fire rings for our sites is on our list for future improvements and we will keep your thoughts in mind.

Beautiful campground. Nice big sites. The pool and hot tub were clean, jumping bag was so fun, mini-golf was great and just overall beautiful park. Would absolutely stay again.

It is difficult to maneuver with a larger RV. I am glad that I could shower in my RV because bathrooms weren’t well maintained

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are able to get big rigs in and out of our park every day. However, guests arriving with larger RVs must remember that like most campgrounds in the nation, our park was build in the 1970s before RVs were 35+ feel long. Therefore, a mix of skill, patience and caution is necessary while navigating through our park.

We had a great time. The delux cabin was perfect for our family of 5. Indoor and outdoor spaces were wonderful. We hope to come back again.
Aug 12, 2019
Such a good experience that we booked a trip for next month already!
Aug 12, 2019
Everyone and everything about this KOA is top notch!!! I am a returning guest and will keep coming back. The owners are incredible!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the accolades! We have top-notch guests as well and are pleased to have you stay with us again and again!

Enjoyed the time we spent at Coloma/St. Joseph KOA. The campground had plenty if shade, and seemed to be well run. Turns are a bit tight for bigger rigs, but manageable if you take your time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your time with us. Due to the fact that we have families galore on the weekends, we appreciate that you used skill, patience, and caution when navigating our park with your rig.

Bathrooms needed cleaning! Park was full so they were being used a lot. Too many kids riding bikes not obeying the rules. Surprised that someone does not get hurt. Going every which way they pleased. Liked that the roads were paved and park seem to be clean. Would come back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our restrooms are regularly cleaned, especially when we have a full house. While we appreciate your understanding, we remain committed to ensuring they are clean and inviting. Additionally, while we urge children to be careful while playing in the park, parents bear the primary responsibility. Additionally, as a family-friendly campground, all guests need to expect that kids will be at play.
Aug 11, 2019
We love this campground. The owners are very friendly and around if you need anything. It is small and quiet and covered with trees for a great shaded camp spot. All the employees are very helpful and nice.

I tented a cabin for my daughter and her girlfriend for 2 days because they were ina wedding close by. They enjoyed their time spent there.
Aug 11, 2019
Just traveling thru with motor home & toad. We could not hook up to water, sewer,or cable. They were set too far back of lot. Would have to unhook toad if I wanted to hook up to them. Should have given me a different lot with set up closer.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were glad to accommodate you for one night during your travels. While we can appreciate your desire for closer hook-ups, we had limited availability to provide you with a different site given the fact that your reservation was made less than one week ahead of your arrival and our most popular sites, such as our full hook-up pull-thru or Deluxe patio RV sites, get reserved well in advance.
Aug 11, 2019
This place is a death trap.... with the way they allow vehicles to park... to obviously NO RULES FOR CHILDREN!!! Someone is going to get killed trying to get in or out of this place!!! Please go check this place.... needs to be revoked.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Respectfully, we pride ourselves as being family-friendly, and are happy to offer an environment in which children can have a safe and enjoyable time. Because you were here with us for only one night during a busy weekend in our peak summer season, we notify travelers such as yourself, to use caution and expect there to be a myriad of children at play. Our rules partner with responsible parents.

We stayed at a lot of a KOA parks in Michigan. This is one of the best if not the best. The park is treed, immaculate and the spacious sites level. There are numerous activities for families yet quiet for seniors. We enjoyed the on site cafe (soft serve ice creams, pizza, wings, etc). Carolyn was exceptionally helpful with suggestions when we experienced problems with a tire. We will return!

Beautiful campground. Well spaced sites. Staff gracious
Aug 10, 2019
It was a long trip so we were pleased with a super fast check in process, a nice pull-thru site, a quiet campground and pizza delivered from the camp office. We only stayed one night but would go back again!
Aug 10, 2019
Would like to be able to choose a site. Would be nice to have bench at the jumping pillow. Put a baby swing at the playground

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Providing guests with the option of having a Site Guarantee Lock is coming in 2020. We have picnic tables by the jumping pillow outside the fenced in area, and will definitely look at adding a baby swing at the playground.

The campground, staff, store, RV sites pool wonerful. I love the fact there is family bathrooms in the back. I have a 25 year daughter that had a stroke and needs help. Plenty of room for us both to move around. My only CON is the major one. The pool is not handicap accessible at all. Older people and handicap have a hard time to get in and out. Actual steps needed greatly! You only have ladder

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback. With regards to the pool, we actually added after-market steps to the pool two years ago, but the State of Michigan said they did not meet their specs, and required us to remove them. Since then, we haven't been able to find a step insert that meets the state requirements, and all other options thus far are far too cost-prohibitive. We'll keep looking for an option.

Fantastic! Clean, great service, keep it up!

People in the general store were so very nice and helpful. The workers who drove around on golf carts were on point and always there to pick up trash. My grandkids LOVED the jumping pillow!

Lovely shady spot to spend time.

great host and good pizza.
Aug 07, 2019
Very nice setting. Reasonably close to restaurants. Super nice owners and helpful. If you have a large bus and are towing you will probably have to unhook your tow. We will go back and stay longer.

we stayed here three years ago and have seen great improvements, especially in the restrooms. the new owners should be commended for the many improvements.

Wonderful campground!! Staff are so very nice and helpful to the campers. Appreciate delivery of ice & wood to our sites. The pizza was a nice surprise. It was great to order pizza and have it delivered to our site while setting up our camper.

Very friendly staff, very clean and peaceful campground. Already booked our next stay!
Aug 05, 2019
Very nice park. Just an overnight stay, but like the location, close to downtown St. Joe. Amenities are excellent. May make the campgrounds a site for family vacation next summer.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you couldn't stay with us longer, but glad you had a nice time. During the peak summer season, our park fills up quickly. If you are a planner, you can book your stay with us in 2020 right after Labor Day this year, starting on September 3. Hope to see you then!
Aug 05, 2019
We had a wonderful stay. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The campground was clean, and full of fun for the whole family. Our only complaint was the noise from the highway

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for being with us. We are located conveniently off I-196/US-31 (Exit 4). Most guest enjoy the easy on/off access allowing them to arrive here quickly and scoot out to other area attractions. Our tax dollars are hard at work and we are pleased that the construction will soon be complete providing smoother paved roads that we anticipate will reduce the residual noise in the future.

We camped here for 5 days with our 5 grandchildren. We loved all the kid friendly activities that kept them busy. Jumpy pillow was a favorite! Staff were polite, helpful and friendly. Clean bathrooms. Very quiet at night. Beach wasn't far away either. We had a great stay!!
Aug 02, 2019
Best Kia we stayed at of ffhe 3 KOAs we used in 9 days service was polite, gave us all I formation on our stay, pool was warmed and very nice, along with hot tub, everyone was helpful and made our stay a. Very pleasant one. Also very clean and sites were fantastic. All set up with table and fire pit. One KIA we stayed at we had to ask for a picnic table. We plan to come back to this KOA.

Wonderful place, great pool and activities. Hosts and staff could not have been nicer and accommodating. Great place for kids! Had to promise them we would return. One wanted to move there!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a great time building memories with your family, and look forward to your return visit. If your kids really want to live here, we can attest that campground ownership is a lot of work, but it's a great life as well! Because we don't plan to own the park forever, when they grow a little older, we'll probably be ready to entertain an offer, then they too can fulfill their wish! :-)

This was our first time staying at this campground. It exceeded all my expectations! I'm a critical person, and I have absolutely no complaints about this campground. There was a line to check in but Mark, the owner, was walking and talking to people in line and told me I could go check in to save time. There were so many things for kids to do! I ordered pizzas when we arrived and they were delivered to our site 20 minutes later. We could put our trash out at the street and someone came by in a golf cart numerous times a day to pick it up. The bathrooms were clean, smelled good and had contemporary Christian music playing. Showers were clean and even had caddy's! The beach was a 10 minute drive. We already have reservations for Labor Day, I cant wait to go back! I could tell the owners Mark and Karla take great pride in their campground and really make sure campers have a positive and memorable experience! Thank you!

The wife and I used this as home base for our 50th birthday camping trip. Very clean campground with all the amenities you might expect. We had a full hookup site that included basic cable service and free wifi. The pool was nice and clean as was the hot tub and the restrooms. Perfect location for trips to the winery or the beach.
