We really enjoyed our stay at the campground. VERY polite staff, the campground was clean, quiet and not overly busy or noisy as others. We will be back and have already recommended to friends.

Short holiday stay over July 4. Pleasant campground
Jul 12, 2018
Very crowded and loud at night. I also thought the price was high for what we received.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were pleased we could accommodate your last minute reservation for a one night stay during the week of the 4th of July. However, you should have expected there would be a few more people in the park during the busy holiday. The cost charged is also very competitive for the amenities we offer, the time you came, and the location to area attractions.

Best KOA we have visited so far!
Jul 11, 2018
We have stayed at Keio Waze nearly exclusively on our cross-country journey. This is hands-down the best! No complaints. And the staff comes around constantly to pick up your trash from your campsite! Very please

People wwre very friendly. The grounds and amenities were very clean.

Our first time here....very clean..my reservation had a problem and Courtney took care of it for us... Staff was very helpful ....my granddaughters had a blast...

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have amazing staff, and are pleased to hear that Courtney took good care of you.

Amazing staff and great stores with mature trees. Only minor criticism is I wish the bike rentals were free like at an other koa I stayed at.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your time. In discussions with our fellow KOA owners, we have never found one that offers the fun bikes for free. There is a cost to maintain them and keep them in good working condition. Therefore, the modest charge for this popular amenity helps with the upkeep and eventual replacement cost and provides a ton of fun.

This is an annual trip with our grand daughters....and it is the most wonderful place to stay! We utilize the pool and hot tub on multiple occasions and don't forget the jumpy pillow! And the ice cream is one of the four food groups every day..at least 3 times a day! This year was the first year we joined in for the crafts with was awesome! And all of us watched the Saturday night movie! cu nxt yr

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are humbled when we know our guests plan on visiting us for their annual trips. It's rewarding to hold a special place in your hearts and to contribute to building lasting family memories!

New updates were very nice. Bathrooms could be a bit cleaner, or more often.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed our updates. Please know we are committed to the cleanliness of our facilities, and have them cleaned at least three times daily during our peak season. Weather, heavy use, and the sand that gets carried in from the bottom of people's footwear also plays a factor. Regardless, we work very hard to stay on top of it.

Great family friendly campground with lots of shade and fun 4th of July activities.

Outstanding campground, very detail oriented.

Matt and the KOA crew were great! Clean and well maintained sites, with lots of activities for families �
Jul 10, 2018
We joined family members who have stayed at the Coloma/St. Joe KOA for the past 5 years over the 4th of July week, and we were not disappointed! The campground was pristine, the restroom and shower facilities were kept clean with multiple cleanings each day, and the staff was warm, gracious, and attentive. Our kids had so much to do with planned activities and their amenities, we will be back!
Jul 10, 2018
We like the campground, the staff, the location, but this time I half to say the private bathrooms were not kept clean as before.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry it appears the restrooms were not as clean for you during your recent stay. Peak summer crowds always make it challenging. We are committed to maintaining the cleanliness of our facilities. In fact, we have adopted a new cleaning schedule to stay on top of it during our peak season. Our largest complaint this year has been that we clean them too much - causing guests to wait.

The workers were very helpful to us newbies to camping and helped us figure out our cable problem. Fun place to camp.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Everybody had to be a "newby" at some point. We are glad we could help you build your confidence so you too can be a seasoned camper. We hope to see you again for another fun camping outing!
Jul 10, 2018
Great campground! So special to see how excited the owner, Mark, is about his property and making sure all of his guests are taken care of!!! We travel all over in our camper and he is the BEST owner that we have come in contact with so far. Kids loved the park and the outdoor movie as well as the bike rental. The camp store is amazing and full of fun food, ice cream and coffee! GREAT JOB!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

WOW! Thank you for the accolades. Mark and Karla's passion for camping and love for guests is contagious, and has infected their entire staff. We are glad you enjoyed our hospitality and your time with us.
Jul 10, 2018
It would be nice if they fixed the dilapidated tennis court on the property. Would be a nice family option to enjoy!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We recognize the condition of the tennis court, which is why we no longer list or promote it as an available amenity. Due to the diminished popularity of tennis and the cost it would take to restore and properly maintain it, we have plans to utilize that space for other family-fun activities which we hope to make available in the not so distant future.
Jul 10, 2018
Mark and his crew were incredible! Top notch customer service was provided!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our goal is to always meet and exceed our guest's expectations and help create family memories, one camping night at a time. We are glad to know we have succeeded in our efforts.
Jul 10, 2018
Staff is very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed the hot tub on this overnight. The road behind the pool needs a grading, or some fill... really rough on the exit. Had two or three bushes and trees that are VERY close to the corners... especially when people park funny. I'd definitely return. Beautiful park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback. Since your visit, we have recently conducted some mid-season trimming of our trees and bushes, which inevitable sprout during the season. Additionally, due to the historical levels of rain we received this year, we are aware that one of our roads has begun to deteriorate and have made plans for it to be repaved in the fall.

The campground is very clean very quiet and it’s a Great place to camp. The Manager is very friendly
Jul 09, 2018
Very friendly staff-everyone we encountered was top-notch. Park is in a good location, easy to get around places. I don’t think we have ever stayed in such a shaded park, great to have so many trees. The only negative was the size of our site. We stayed in a pull through site. Way too small. We couldn’t even fit our chairs around our fire pit because we were so close to the neighbors.
Jul 09, 2018
The owners are very friendly and helpful. This campground is quite small and a bit hard to maneuver around with a larger camper. It is a very pretty and clean campground with lots of trees and shaded campsites. We had a great time during out stay.
Jul 09, 2018
Great friendly staff and campground was clean. Would definitely stay here again!

We love the campground. We always have a good time. The staff is great
Jul 09, 2018
We had a wonderful stay in Coloma. Mark,Karla and their children make you feel very welcome. Great amenities, service, and attitude by all employees. Restroom and showers were always clean. Campground sites kept in top condition. You can tell that a lot of hard work goes into this campground every day. Will definitely be back again. Thanks for a great week!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was our pleasure to have you with us. It is incredibly rewarding to know that our hard work provides guests with the respite they are seeking when they come here. We look forward to seeing you again.
Jul 09, 2018
Good time. Stairs back in pool would be nice or three steps ladder in the sallow end.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We added steps to our pool last season, but were required to remove them by the State of Michigan as it did not conform to their standards. We will keep your suggestion in mind as we continue to make improvements to our park.
Jul 09, 2018
This KOA Campground is the nicest KOA that we have had the pleasure to stay in to date. My ONLY complaint is that this campground is not located closer to my home in Colorado. If we find ourselves back in this area, we will for sure be returning. We cannot say enough GREAT things about the facility, Jim & Karla and their entire staff. We HIGHLY recommend this KOA to anyone camping in this area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are honored that you wish we were closer to your home state of Colorado, but sadly cannot make any changes there. Our Great lakes, and your Rocky Mountains would indeed make for a spectacular camping experience. I guess we'll have to settle for enjoying our unique topography as we visit each other's home state. Until next time!
Jul 09, 2018
Absolutely love that the owners are Christians. It shows in how the campground is maintained and operated. Loved hearing Christian radio in the bathrooms too. Really sets the tone for family fun. We had a great time with our family and enjoyed exploring MI! We will definitely be back. The wings were great too! Thank you !!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our labor of love indeed comes from a higher calling to serve our guests. We feel blessed to know that we were able to be a blessing to you and your family.
Jul 09, 2018
The grand kids loved the jumping pillow. The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is the electricity and water were on the wrong side at our camp site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Having bought our park two years ago, we fully recognize that some of the original infrastructure was placed in awkward locations. Rest assured, it is on our target list for improvements, but we simply cannot do everything at once.

Ants

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ants are the uninvited guests to a picnic and camping, but are at times unavoidable. While we take time to mitigate annoying insects in our outdoor environment, we cannot eliminate them from what arguably was their home first.
Jul 09, 2018
Enjoyed the Coloma/St. Joseph area but this campground is more geared to tent campers than RV'ers. Won't be staying here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

While we are sorry to learn that you did not enjoy your time with us. One of the reasons why our park is so popular is that it offers a balance of sites that can accommodate both RVers and those in tents. While we are considering adding additional RV sites in the future, tenting is still the entre into a camping experience, and we have every intention to continue to welcome tenting guests.
Jul 09, 2018
Only negative thing about the trip was the bathrooms. Always a line and a 15+ minute wait. They need more bathrooms.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Due to the popularity of our family-style bathrooms, we recognize that there is at times a wait to use them. However, With two bathroom facilities on property, there is never a wait at both of them at the same time. We would suggest that perhaps rather than waiting, guests might better use the time to take the short walk to the main building.
Jul 09, 2018
Got accused of taking firewood that didn’t belong to us when we bought it. Then had someone come to my friends campsite saying there is too many people there and only two adults were on the reservation when we were just hanging out there and they were rude

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry there was a misunderstanding regarding the wood. However, we will not apologize for inquiring with you regarding the number of persons on your site. As part of our regular security measures, we are very intentional in our efforts to verify that all individuals on property are registered guests, especially as we head into the evening hours.
Jul 09, 2018
Just right, easy. That’s what I am looking for when on the road

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As they say, location, location, location! We're glad to be able to accommodate guests who are traveling and those who stay awhile to enjoy everything we have to offer. Those who are able to linger will also discover our beautiful beaches, orchards, and award-winning vineyards.
Jul 08, 2018
As always, it is everything we could ask for and more. This campground is our home away from home and we bring more people every year we can!!! The owners and their family there treat you just like that: Family!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so pleased you enjoyed our level of hospitality. We genuinely seek to serve our guests in such a way where they are able to relax and feel as if they are part of our extended family staying at our home. Similarly, it's encouraging to us when some guests return the expression and make us feel as if we are a part of theirs as well. We look forward to having you stay with us again!

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.
