Campground Reviews

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.

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.

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

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!

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!!

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! :-)

Another great year in the books! We live the little rustic cam in’s and the upgrades they are doing at the campground. I still wish the cabins had an exterior outlet and the option to rent a mini fridge. But other than that, everything is perfect at the Coloma KOA. The owners & employees are so nice as is everyone that vamps there. Can’t wait to go back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate the idea of the mini-fridge, but due to limitations with the electrical capacity at our camping cabins, we have intentionally chosen not to add mini-fridges at this time. That being said, we're glad you had a great time. Although your annual camping trip is "in the books," we still have more great camping available through October 14! Perhaps we'll see you again! :-)

We had the best few days! Being Seniors who've been on the road for 16 years, we appreciate seeing kids running around. It makes us nostalgic for the days when we camped with our children. The people at this KOA are friendly & helpful. The pool and facilities are perfect for one's needs & there's ice cream! Met the owners' poised & articulate daughter at a bakery/fruit stand. She was wonderful!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed your time with us, and were entertained by the families with younger children all having fun. Truth is, it brings us back too, and we get so much joy knowing we're helping them create their own family memories! We're also pleased you met our daughter during her job down the road at Bob's Barn. It's good to know that she's still an ambassador for our campground.

Great stay! Clean site, clean bathrooms and friendly staff. Cant beat the close proximity to St. Joe.
Jul 30, 2019
A lovely KOA, with super friendly people. And a terrific KOA Store—-lots of unique and useful things!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As avid campers, we attempt to carry all the general store items we ourselves have needed (okay, let's be honest... we mean items we have forgotten) on our own camping trips. We also seek to carry fun and interesting "must have" souvenirs that you'll want to bring home home with you as a reminder of your time with us, or interesting gift items that you can give to others or keep for yourself.

Everyone that works there is very nice & helpful. It was very neat & clean. We only stayed for a night on our way to & from vacation & it was a restful & enjoyable place to camp. We had a yummy pizza delivered from the cafe & noticed there were plenty of activities for familiies. The pool was enjoyed by all.

First stay at a KOA. We purchased a membership. Very enjoyable. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is that it appeared that our fire ring had been moved multiple times and there was a lot of dirt on the lot because of that. The pool is very nice and we liked the mature trees throughout the campground. After 10:30 it was quiet. Store was nice. All staff were very friendly. We plan to return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad to be your first KOA and excited to have you officially join the Value Kard Rewards program. Thanks also for your feedback on the fire pit. While we designate specific areas, at times guest move them, thereby creating the situation you found at your site. In the coming years, we intend to invest in new fire rings are are evaluating making them stationary so they cannot be moved.

Had a wonderful time. Spent 4 nights, a few with the grandkids and had a great time. People were very friendly. We will be back.

We have been camping here with our grandkids for the past 9 years, and we enjoy it so much-it is their favorite campground! The free mini golf is great ! And we really appreciate all the improvements - both to the golf course and the showers and the campsites. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We love all the mature trees and shade!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We love it when guests, who have come throughout the years, recognize the hard work/renovations that has occurred over the past three years. These improvements were made exactly for the purpose of improving your experience and earning your continued business. We look forward to seeing you again!

We love this campground! This out 5th time here and we will be coming again in three weeks. The people here are amazing and the service is always above and beyond. Sites are a good size with several having full hookup. Tons for the kiddos to do plus the parents have fun too. Might be the best campground in Michigan!

This KOA was wonderful. We stayed for 4 nights and everything was kept immaculate during our entire visit. Our kids enjoyed the pool, pedal bikes and all of the kid friendly activities. Wonderful shade trees cover the whole area. Bathrooms were always neat and clean. Owners and staff on site at all times, including over night. Very nice camp store with lots of supplies, ice cream and yummy pizza that they deliver right to your site.p Great proximity to beach towns and Lake Michigan. Only complaint would be some sites directly across from the pool/office had utility hookups that had to cross under the camper. I would not lower my rating based on this, I understand it would be difficult to upgrade them with all of the tree roots. Highly recommend!!!
