Campground Reviews

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. All of the amenities were great although the hot tub was out of order. We definitely had a great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you had a great stay and feel badly that the hot tub was out of service due to unscheduled maintenance as the result of damage caused by another guest. We are working to get it back up and running ASAP before the end of the season.

Nice facilities. We stayed in a primitive campsite and it was nice and quiet. The kids loved the pool on a hot day. Not as nice bathrooms as other KOA we have stayed at. Also it was very crowded on a summer Saturday night. If in St. Joseph area we would stay again.

It was fabulous, thank you.

My stay was amazing. Felt like I was with family there!!!

Very nice time during a very busy camping season. Our family had a blast but wished we weren't so close to other campers.

We stayed in site 117, rustic tent no hookups and were very pleased. The kiddos loved the jumping pillow and pool the most! The store items were reasonably priced and the staff made our stay very welcoming!

We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your time with us. As avid campers ourselves, we always disliked it when we believed we were being "ripped off" by higher-than-usual costs at a campground simply because we were a captive audience. Therefore, we are pleased to carry only high-quality products in our General Store and Cafe, and to provide our guests with reasonable prices.

We had a wonderful stay. This was our first time camping with our kids (3 and 6) and they loved it! We stayed in a tent and loved that the area was surrounded by large trees. The site was very clean and I felt very safe letting the kids roam a bit with us just nearby watching. The barrel train ride and movie under the stars were both a hit!! We are very excited to plan a trip back next summer.

As a family-friendly campground, we are pleased to hear that our setting and activities helped you create great family memories. We are also pleased to know you're planning to come back and see us again next year. Better yet, why wait? We've got some fun fall camping available yet this year through October 14th, when we'll celebrate our Halloween Harvest and Second Annual Chili Cook-Off!

Stay was good. Workers all very nice and friendly. Did not like the co-ed bathrooms and wish all the bathrooms were more updated. Everything else was good - kids had a blast.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a blast! The family-style restrooms are actually quite popular with our guests as it provides greater flexibility, especially for families with younger children. As relatively new owners of our campground (2 years), we have been making several upgrades. You'll be pleased to know that our next major project is to renovate the restrooms in our main building.

Was very enjoyable. Will be staying there again, towards the end of our journey.

A very enjoyable visit, at an especially pleasant campground. The only problem we had was one morning some neighbors had let their large dogs out off of leash and they went after our small dog. But that is the dog owners mess up, not the campground management.

fantastic site, we stay every year. Mark has done a great job improving an already wonderful site.

This was a great KOA campsite, roughly midway on our road trip between Chicago and Torch Lake, MI. It's unlikely we'll pass this way again, but if we did, we would gladly stay here again and recommend to our friends and family as well. Great amenities, clean facilities and really nice people who work here, including the Owners.
Aug 05, 2018
I felt like the full hookup we were in and that row are way to close to enjoy our stay, but the rest seemed fine.
Aug 05, 2018
Clean and friendly. Couldn't ask for more
Aug 05, 2018
The entire staff was very kind and helpful. Our campsite was clean and ready for us at check in. The clubhouse/store had items to purchase at a very reasonable price. My only negative comment is that the playground was on sand which was very messy. Also, it was a bit dated and not very toddler friendly. My family and I will be coming back next summer!
Aug 05, 2018
The owners and staff are so friendly and welcoming. You can tell they really care about their business and they want you to enjoy uour stay. AWESOME place to camp!

We love it when we can help guests who are new to camping have a great time. You are well on your way to being a seasoned camper, and we hope to see you again!

last minute reservation, everything smooth checking in. First time our family has been at a KOA.Really enjoyed the activities offered! Campsite, bathroom/showers, entire grounds very clean. suggest a ‘curfew’ for young adults prior to quiet time (to stay on site unless w/adult) and quiet time enforced. large HS aged group was loud until 11:20p just across our site in field by pond.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. We are glad you found our activities and facilities to be enjoyable. Thanks also for your feedback regarding the teenagers. While we hope parents will be the first to ensure their kids are respectful of other guests and observe our Quiet Hours, if ever there is a disturbance in the park, we invite you to let us know so we can address it immediately.

First time camping as well as visiting the beautiful state of Michigan. The campground was clean, family friendly and the staff were amazing. Will definitely visit again.
Aug 03, 2018
Excellent! Lots of activities for everyone to do. We loved the jump pillow and the bikes. Very clean facility and well maintained. Will return soon!
Aug 03, 2018
Great location and wonderful campground. Everyone was very friendly. The owner Mark went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Pool, hot tub, bounce pillow and the game room were all a hit with the kids. We will be back!
Aug 03, 2018
Close to highway, owners very nice and friendly. Sites a little on small side.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our convenient location to/from the highway allows guests to maximize their time visiting area attractions instead of wasting more time in their vehicle. Less time driving, equals more time enjoying your vacation!

It was a great stay. Loved how close it was to lake Michigan. The campgrounds hot tub and pool was great. The tent site was good.
Aug 01, 2018
Wonderful place to stay. There were a couple of cobwebs in the cabin but overall it was clean.
Aug 01, 2018
Loved the cabin! Park is clean and everyone was very friendly. The hot tub was in poor repair as well as the mini golf. We couldn't really enjoy the fire pit. It was too close to the cabin and on uneven ground, we were afraid the grandkids would fall in the fire�.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your cabin and our hospitality. While the hot tub is in perfect working order, it is one of our older amenities. Additionally, the hot tub, mini-golf, and fire rings are all on our list of amenities to which we are currently considering making prospective upgrades.
Aug 01, 2018
Beautiful campground, Older bathrooms, Very nice pool and hot tub. only thing i didn't care for were all the kids running and riding their bikes through my site to get to the play set area. I had to move my wood, cooler and picnic table to block off a easy crossing it to. in order to keep them off of my site

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed our campground and look forward to sharing with you our updated restrooms in the near future. We also feel badly that kids were not exercising good camping etiquette, but applaud the way you handled it by creatively letting them know not to cross through your site.

Awesome experience. The staff could not have been nicer.

Everything was great. Cabins were really nice. Could definitely use more bathrooms and showers. Always had to wait, and they were not the cleanest. Other than that, we had a great time! Owners were very friendly!

beautiful park friendly people
Jul 31, 2018
Our second time visiting and we had a blast again. But we missed the Tuesday night train rides! We also want to thank your staff for helping jump our car when the battery was dead the morning we were to leave.
Jul 31, 2018
Our first time experience was awesome. It was clean, people were friendly, so much for the kids to do and a short drive to the beach. Highly recommend and we will be returning next year!
Jul 31, 2018
It was a nice camping area. It was clean, and there was a lot four our kids to do. The staff was helpful and friendly. My four star rating has to do with some updates that could be done to the putt-putt golf area and the fact that the campsites were a bit close to one another. We had a great time!

Mosquitoes were horrible. Stayed indoors the last 2 nights of our stay because they were so bad!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We take every effort to reduce mosquitoes, however, we do not have the ability to eliminate them completely. Your feedback is also perplexing to us, because if we really had such a prevalent problem, we are confident we would have received more complaints from the hundreds of other guests who were here at the same time as your stay.
Jul 31, 2018
Campground is too noisy. My electric and water was too far away from my site. Had to go out and buy extra hose and 30amp extension cord. $$$.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with your electric and water hook ups. Please know that as new owners of our 44-year old park, we have been making numerous improvements, but simply cannot fix everything at once. Rest assured we plan to upgrade the awkward location of some of our utilities. While most campers have extra extensions, had you asked, we would have loaned you a set.

New owners are working hard to make improvements, and it shows. Close to St. Joseph, as well as a few great park and nature areas.

This is the best KOA I have ever stayed at. They offer RV sites, tent sites, and 3 glamming tents. The facilities are nice and clean. The campsites are really good. All the other campers there are just amazing and so nice. They have so many activities and games that you can sign out for free. They have a pool and hot tub. The campground is also close to the beach. The owners are just amazing. They’re the nicest people you will ever meet and they really care for their campground. It is also convenient because it is right of the Interstate/highway. If you’re ever visiting the Benton Harbor area and are looking for a place to camp, I highly recommend staying at this place. You will really enjoy your stay.
