Coloma / St. Joseph KOA Reviews

Making Family Memories, One Camping Night at a Time

Campground Reviews

Jul 16, 2018
It was great! Love the new owners and all the new updates. We stayed at this KOA a few years ago and our stay was much better this time. No complaints! We were very happy ..we were in a shaded tent area and it was close to private showers /bathrooms & playground.
Jul 16, 2018
WE really liked the KOA. The only thing that was bad were the bugs. I don't know if you could spray for them or not, but other then that, we loved our stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We spray against bugs each year as a regular part of our grounds maintenance, and have already done so three times this season. However, due to the historical levels of rain we've received, and at times the bugs have been very noticeable. We will likely spray at least one more time this summer.

There's so much to do and there are lots of nice touches like great activities, flower beds, and Adirondack chairs by the pond. We've been coming every year for a decade and the new owners have put a lot of love and effort in. It's now my favorite KOA!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your loyalty to KOA and for making us your new favorite place to camp!

Very nice trip, would love to see the tennis court get upgraded.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your input, however, the tennis court is not on our list for renovation. Our plans are to repurpose the space for other recreational use in the not so distance future.

The campground was wonderful, shady, well kept and big sites. The bathroom and showers were spotless and the cartboys helping throughout the day were great! Definitely will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you had a great time. Thanks also for commenting how clean our facilities were. We work hard at it and appreciate getting the "atta boys" that shows our staff get it right!

Our site was wonderful and the staff was very helpful and courteous. Our only issue was the washrooms weren't up to usual KOA expectations. A scheduled washroom cleanup is done properly, but a general walk through inspection and cleanup needs to be done throughout the day. Amenities being similar throughout KOA we base our stays on washroom cleanliness.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize that the restrooms were not as clean as you (or we) would expect. Our staff work incredibly hard to stay on top of them through a rigorous schedule that includes cleaning multiple times a day. However, during the busy week of 4th of July, the sheer volume of use at times makes it a challenge. A challenge we will seek to improve.
Jul 16, 2018
It would be nice if there were at least a one stall bathroom near the cabins we stayed at doesn't need a shower per say just at least a bathroom

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate your feedback and will keep it in mind as we continue to make improvements to our park.

Awesome campground! Already have recommended them to our friends. Well kept and nicely landscaped. We stayed in a deluxe site and it was fantastic! Shaded site with beautiful dense woods behind us. Chairs so nice we never even got our own chairs out! Owners and staff out and about smiling, waving and talking to guests. Campstore well stocked. Close to St Joseph, Mich We will be back!

The campground was very well kept and family friendly. the love the owners had for their campground really showed in the details. The owners went out of their way to be helpful and ensure we had a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back!

Everything was great. The only thing that I didn't like was the mosquito. They were bad. Bad year for them.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a good time, despite some pesky visitors. As part of our regular grounds maintenance, we spray each year at least twice. Due to the significant amount of rain we've received to-date this year, and the trees in throughout our park, we've already sprayed three times. Our efforts combined with personal bug protection and/or available anti-bug products in our store will hopefully help.
Jul 14, 2018
We had one of the deluxe RV sites and it was great!! The staff was extremely friendly, especially Becca.. We definitely would stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a great time and that you appreciated Becca's personal style. We will be sure to pass along your encouraging word.

My husband and I thought the young people were wonderfull and you should be very proud of them, plus I enjoyed doing my laundry and working a puzzle! We will be back we are off to. Wedding and then back to Arizona ���� Stacie and Doug Foster and dogs ����

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very proud of the great young people we have on staff. They have a strong work-ethic and genuinely care about providing our guests with the best service! We look forward to seeing you again!
Jul 14, 2018
Very nice staff- helpful and courteous. Sites were clean and good size. Some sites were a little confusing(hard to differentiate between numbers and their corresponding electric, fire pit and picnic table. But we would definitely stay again. Very large store- most anything you would need and more. I think owners are fairly new and are improving park nicely. Will be good to see it next time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your constructive feedback regarding the site identification. We hear you, and are working on a solution. Last year we added new site markers, and we are currently in the process of refreshing some of our electric pedestals in order to avoid confusion. In the near future we also plan to relocate some electric pedestals to improve guest convenience.

Nice location. Good amenities. Great selection of food in office. Friendly staff. It could use some deep cleaning in the bathrooms, especially the ones located in the back of the park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Summer crowds, high-use, and the nature of our park (beach sand) at times causes the restrooms to look dirty. Please know, we are committed to the cleanliness of our restrooms and have a very rigorous daily cleaning schedule.

This KOA had everything! The Jacuzzi was totally unexpected! Pool was immaculate. Extremely kid friendly, so much to do for everyone. Plenty of clean bathrooms. Super friendly staff :-) our family had so much fun!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed our amenities, especially the hot tub. It is a unique feature that we are pleased to provide our guests.

Jul 13, 2018
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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your kind words, your plans to stay with us again, and for recommending our campground to your friends. Your vote of confidence in our hospitality is very encouraging!
Jul 12, 2018
Absolutely our favorite KOA! The campground is beautiful and the staff and owners are truly the best! Bring your family - they will have a wonderful time!

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
Jul 11, 2018
People wwre very friendly. The grounds and amenities were very clean.
Jul 11, 2018
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.
Jul 11, 2018
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

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.

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!

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.

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!
