Campground Reviews

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Great campground! Clean, well-run, lots to do!

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.

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!

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.

Great people

Clean campground. Very helpful. Really enjoyed our stay
Jul 25, 2018
Nice camp, clean site, a little busy on the weekends. The pool could have been cleaner. Glad we stayed there for a week!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are honored to be recognized by thousands of guests as one of the most popular campgrounds. Whether it's our amenities, our exceptional hospitality, or because we're the closest KOA to the beach towns of St. Joseph and South Haven... it is nearly a guarantee that we will have a full house every weekend of our "Pure Michigan" summer.

We stayed in a cabin. It was perfect, especially since it ended up raining most of the weekend. Great place for a family with young children!

We had two grandchildren with us and appreciated the activities that were available for them. The Park was well cared for and very enjoyable.

Although the weather was rainy, the hospitality of the staff made it a great visit. Two gentlemen helped us get parked and they we're awesome. Very nice facility.
Jul 24, 2018
Fun time, friendly helpful staff!
Jul 24, 2018
Great place to stay.
Jul 24, 2018
We had a great time. Even with the weather not being so great it we had a good time in St. Joseph walking around and exploring the town. The camp ground was nice. It was very busy but that is to be expected with summer. We were lucky enough to only have neighbors to one side of us so that helped keep noise levels down. It would have been a bit close having a tent to the other side of us as well.

Nice and clean facility, very friendly staff, lots of things to do onsite = one happy camper :-)

They should not place anyone next to dump station. Reason for 4 out of 5 stars. Though they tried to fix the problem (smell). Staff is extremely friendly. Very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We clearly remember working to address the issue while you were here. As we shared, as part of our regular maintenance, we are diligent and purposeful about maintaining a clean Dump Station. Furthermore, while your proximity caused you to believe the problem was the dump station, you'll recall that we identified the septic hose you were personally using on your site did not have a tight fit.

Another great weekend at the Coloma KOA. We were there for a family reunion. Second year in a row to gather at this KOA for the reunion. As always, the staff is very pleasant. The facilities and grounds are always well kept. Mark is always very hospitable and a pleasure to talk to. Thanks again and we will see you soon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was our honor to have you here again for your family reunion. Our mission is to "Create family memories, one camping night at a time." It's rewarding to know we succeeded and that we could play a role in providing a memorable experience for the gathering of four generations!

We had a large group and had issues with some of our reservations for people within our group. It was a great time had by all otherwise.

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.
