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!

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!

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!

Wonderful place to stay. There were a couple of cobwebs in the cabin but overall it was clean.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.
Jul 30, 2018
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.
Jul 30, 2018
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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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!

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.

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 place is very clean and well kept. Enjoyed the pizza and ice cream in the little general store that they have!

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.
