Campground Reviews

The campground was very well operated and kept. Staff, from owner to garbage man, are outstanding - clearly focused on SERVICE. ADVICE - get more KOA owners like Karla and Mark!! Will be back - ASAP!

Thanks for your high praise! We look forward to seeing you again.

Wonderful campground. Perfect for kids with lots of activities! Close to a great beach and lots of fun activities like berry picking and vineyards.
Jul 30, 2018
Loved your campground! Campsite was good sized and well maintained. Next year we will definitely return and request the “premium” site which looked awesome! Hope that you will make even more sites the premium status!!
Jul 30, 2018
Great campground, would definitely stay here again!
Jul 30, 2018
Great experience - stay here every year. The new owners are doing a great job bringing the facility back to the standards and providing activities that you would expect at a KOA.

This quite little campground is one of our favorites! The location is great the new owners are doing a job renovating and updating the campground. Would love to see the roads widen for the bigger rigs and paved.

Staff was incredibly helpful. Lots to do and very close to lake Michigan
Jul 30, 2018
Very nice campground, just minutes from the beach or from shopping. My wife and I highly recommend this koa. We look forward to staying there again.

Good location. We stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. Uber will drop you off from St. Joe. The Bathrooms and showers were clean.

I was most impressed with the cleanliness of the restrooms and the campground as a whole! I have never been to a campground bathroom that was so clean! The activities for the kids were awesome as well! The staff and services provided were incredible as well! From the trash pick up, wood delivery and the willingness to accommodate situations. Thank you for a great weekend! We’ll be back!

A really nice little campground! This was our first stay at a KOA campground and we really loved all of the activities for the kids! The staff was very friendly.

Thanks for giving us an opportunity to show you the KOA difference. We hoped we spoiled you so much you won't want to go anywhere else!

We had a great second stay at this campground. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. You can tell the owners take pride in their business and are working to add improvements. I do wish the cabins had mini fridges and outdoor electrical boxes. I also wish the pond was stocked for fishing. But we will for sure be back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your encouragements and constructive feedback. We are in the process of upgrading the interior of some of our cabins, and will consider adding mini-fridges. As for our pond, it is not deep enough to sustain fish year round. Therefore, to-date, we focused on investing in projects where we can have the biggest impact. We will, however, keep your thoughts in mind.

Very friendly staff with excellent customer service. Well maintained park with nice kids activities. The pull through sites are very small. I had to park at the back end of the site if I wanted to use my awning and have a slide out. The neighbor next to me had even less space than I did. I would go back, but would opt for one of the deluxe sites (back in) for more space.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We recognize that some of our sites are longer and wider than others. However, we hope you can appreciate that we try to maintain various options and price-points for our guests. That being said, we are also working hard to improve existing sites and add new ones, such as our brand new, very popular Deluxe Patio RV sites that hopefully you will get a chance to enjoy during your next stay.

This was our second visit. We enjoyed our first so much that we brought 5 other families with us this time. Love the cafe update and the daily activities. My only suggestion is to update the pool liner and wood deck and replace the tiles in the bathrooms .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Rest assured, the pool liner, decking and bathrooms is on our list for future upgrades. However, it currently falls into the category of, "we can't do everything all at once." While time and money are our worst enemy, we hope you won't rule out coming to camp with us in the future, so we can show you what else we've done!
Jul 30, 2018
The campground was in a great location to access St. Joseph's and the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan. The restrooms were a bit dirty and the entire camp ground was very small. It was a tight squeeze for our 5th wheel to get through the campground to our spot and then even with a pull through site, we had to back up and manuver to get out. Even the entry to the campground was tight.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

While we appreciate there certainly may be larger parks, we are very confident with the design of our park as we successfully host over 10,000 guests each year; the overwhelming majority of whom successfully manage to come in and out of our campground. That being said, we always advise guests that they will need to use caution, patience, and skill... all three of which are necessary.
Jul 30, 2018
Perfect in every way!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Truth is we do have our flaws, but we're glad all you saw was perfection!
Jul 30, 2018
The sites are not clearly marked and we were given site 101 which was very small. Our fire pit was basically on the outside of our property line. The sites need to be remarked and made to be similar in size.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that our site boundaries on your rustic tent site was confusing to you, and can appreciate that during our peak season how that did not help your weekend come off to a great start. We hear you, and are in the process of adding split-rail fencing to serval sites that will help provide improved understanding.
Jul 30, 2018
Thanks for a wonderful stay. Mark and his staff went out of their way to accommodate our cross country team and make us feel welcome and special! Our kids will remember the trip long after they remember the workouts!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was a pleasure to have your cross country team stay with us. It is incredibly rewarding to know that we are able to help them build a common bond between one another, and enjoy a bit of the outdoors. Hope you have a great season!
Jul 30, 2018
The staff were wonderful, especially Becca, I tried to steal her away, no way said the owner, I could have her on Oct 15th haha. The mini golf could use an upgrade and the little water hazard is a mosquito trap, otherwise most of the kid stuff was great. We had a nice site with support from all the staff. will consider going again next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the compliment of our staff, and for the special note regarding Becca. Thanks also for not "stealing" one of our valued staff members away from us right in the middle of our peak season. We are blessed with a great team that truly do all they can to meet our guests needs. We will keep your comments in mind regarding the mini-golf course as we continue to make upgrades around the park

Owners are super friendly. Campgrounds and pool and restroom/showers were very clean . little store had everything you could think of. Ice cream..pizza...groceries. They even delivered ice and firewood . it was the best I've been to for sure.

It was nice big showers but small toilet stalls. Beautiful shady spot.

We love it at this campground. All the staff is so friendly. They have a lot of fun things for children. We have a dog and they do a good job keeping up with the k-9 area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you found the K-9 park to be an enjoyable amenity during your stay. We love our four-legged friends so much, we're even having a themed weekend in their honor. If your camping plans allow, come celebrate the "Dog Days of Summer" with us on August 24-25. See our events page for more info.

This KOA was FANTASTIC! We had our first visit last week with our little ones and in-laws and will most definately be back. The kids are crazy about the jump pad and the pool. The bathrooms were always clean, a great little lake and nature trail, a cute park. And such wonderful, friendly staff. This KOA is such a gem.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for such a positive review! We know you have a myriad of choices of where to camp, or other ways to spend your leisure time. Therefore, we work hard to earn your business and look forward to having you back!
Jul 29, 2018
Absolutely amazing! My daughters and I were only able to stay one night but we would have stayed weeks if we were able to. Excellent customer service. Beautiful grounds. Very clean. Thank you for everything! Looking forward to visiting again soon!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that you could only stay with us for one night, and appreciate the compliment that you could stay with us for "weeks." We always seek to provide exceptional hospitality that will meet and exceed your expectations! Glad to see we succeeded. See you again soon!

Great quite campground with lots to do for the kids. We had a great week. The only thing I wish you would change is doing the train every night. My kids loved it!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're so glad you had a great time. While we schedule the barrel train rides at least every Saturday night during the summer, we often will try to bring it our spontaneously as staff availability allows... especially when we have a lot of families in the park during our peak summer season.

I loved your site and would most likely return if given the opportunity. I would, however, strongly recommend that you reduce the poison ivy growth. The tent sites are lovely, but most people would not recognize the elephant-ear sized leaves hanging from the trees as poison ivy. I stayed at site #97 and it is EVERYWHERE. Your tent sites can be natural and wooded and green without the health risks.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you had a nice time, and are excited we may have an opportunity to welcome you back in the future. While we work hard to maintain our grounds, including spraying against poison ivy, such realities are a constant reminder that we are in a wooded environment, as opposed to a field or parking lot. We will take steps to work to reduce it during the remainder of the camping season.
Jul 27, 2018
Shower and restrooms could be cleaner. Very friendly and honest staff. We will stay again

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback. Please know that we are committed to maintaining clean facilities, so much so, that during our peak season we also have staff dedicated to cleaning them multiple times a day. However, if they ever are in need to attention, we would invite guests to let us know so we can address it immediately. We look forward to seeing you again.

Staff was nice. The lot sizes are super generous. The pool and jump pillow are great features. The bathrooms are clean but not updated as some other KOAs have been. In the ladies’ room, the vent fan was working, lots of hooks to hang things, counter space and full length mirror. The utility sink in a closet between bathrooms was gross. It smelled and wasn’t clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As new owners, as of two years ago, we have been busy making numerous improvements. However, because we cannot do everything at once, the areas we haven't done yet stand out. We agree that while our bathrooms are clean, they appear dated. You'll be pleased to know that we are currently in the process of accepting bids with plans to renovate our main bathrooms during the upcoming "off-season.
Jul 27, 2018
Great campground! Clean, well-run, lots to do!
Jul 26, 2018
the staff was very friendly and the campground was very clean

We loved our stay at the Coloma/St. Joseph KOA. The campground was the perfect size for our children, ages 8 & 6. There were several activities and amenities for the children to enjoy. The grounds and facilities were well maintained with clean bathrooms/showers. The staff members were helpful and incredibly pleasant. Additionally, this campground is located near many amazing local attractions.
Jul 26, 2018
If we would have backed in far enough to use the cable hookup we would not have had room to sit outside of our camper because of the stake in the ground. An unleashed dog came after my dogs getting out of our truck. This is a great place for families...we personally just wanted a quieter spot where so many kids weren't riding up and down the road all day and night. It was way too loud for us!

I would definitely recommended this KOA for the customer service alone!! We broke down on our way there-Mark was very understanding & worked with us to change our reservation dates. When we arrived everyone was so sweet & concerned about our journey. The campground itself provided some much needed peace and relaxation. My daughter loved the pool and playground. They were very nice to my dog too :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry for the troubles you had on the road getting to us, but we're glad we could work with you to provide at least some time of rest during your journey. We wish you safe travels and hope to see you again should you the road lead you back to Michigan's Great Southwest.

Christmas in July, Strz family reunion. Mark and Carla and staff go out of their way to make sure everyone is safe and having fun. Mark is so gracious to climb on top of his RV to take a family photo of all of us dressed in our white shirts. The Christmas music provided by the 4 piece band from the Chapel was lovely. Things at this campground are always clean and in tip-top shape. Thanks!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had a great time with your family, and a lot of fun with the Christmas in July themed weekend. Glad you enjoyed another gathering with us!
Jul 25, 2018
love this campground! We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

AWESOME! We love your enthusiasm and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Jul 25, 2018
We had a very lovely time there! Except for the couple rainy days, it was perfect. The ONLY criticism I have is that the curfew wasn’t enforced very well, so we were kept up by noisy people until around 1am every single night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback. We feel badly that you had neighbors that were inconsiderate. We make all guests aware of our policy, and take steps to enforce our Quiet Hours, including ejecting guests from the park if necessary (fortunately, that is a rare occurrence). However, if there is a disturbance in the park, we simply ask guests to make us aware of it, so we can address the situation.

Clean campground. Very helpful. Really enjoyed our stay

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.
