Campground Reviews

Great stay, we had a deluxe site and loved it. For bigs the roads within we're tight. We would come back

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yup, for a 44-year old park that was designed before Big Rigs existed and a park that is ALWAYS full on summer weekends, our park will feel a little tight. But with a little patience, caution and skill, we're glad you successfully navigated you're way in and enjoyed yourselves.

All owners and staff were extremely friendly! Very family oriented, but not so uptight about rules that you don't feel like you can't enjoy your time. Clean amenities, lots to do, and not far from Silver Beach. Would highly recommend.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As a family-friendly park, we are very purposeful about maintaining a peaceful environment and do not tolerate rowdy individuals or groups. It's also helpful that as the premier campground in Southwest Michigan, we attract guests that understand camping etiquette and are more often respectful and courteous of their neighbors.

Very nice facility. Very friendly staff. The weather was terrible. TOO MUCH RAIN!!!!!!!!! Not the fault of the Park! TOO MUCH STANDING WATER! Not the fault of the park. I will stay there again. Thanks!!!!!!

Had a great time. The owner was very personable when we talked to him. Very clean. We will return and bring our grandkids with us. Lots for them to do.
Jun 25, 2018
Loved the people there. Staff was friendly. Sites were clean and constant staff presence kept areas clean and was great just to know they were around if we needed something. Our first all family camping experience was fantastic! Thanks Karla!

The campground was great unfortunately the weather was not. Lol

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed our campground, and wish we could have done more to improve the weather. We'll take your "LOL" as recognition that we have as much control over the weather as you do where you live. :-)

We thought your kampground was amazing! Very clean, spacious sights, everyone was very friendly and helpful, and the pizza and flurries were very tasty! We are already planning our anniversary for next year on site 32 because we felt it was the best spot for us. Thank you for making our Honeymoon so special;)

It was our pleasure to serve you, and even more on such a special occasion!

Staff was super friendly and helpful, our site was great, however do to the low lying area some sites were flooded due to heavy rains. They are working on coming up with a solution to this issue.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our entire staff is committed to exceptional hospitality, so we're glad you enjoyed your time with us. To create enjoyable experiences when it rains, we have closed a handful of sites and with few exceptions, we've been able to move guests around to the driest of sites. While flooded sites look unsightly, it impacts us most when we have to turn guests away if we cannot accommodate them.

Great camp ground. Quite a few lots where flooded and one section of the road became very muddy. Original reservation had cable TV included but upon arrival this was no longer the case. Assuming we were moved due to the flood but no one was able to confirm. A refund of 1 dollar and change was given upon checkin but no reason as to why. Overall great service and nicely maintained.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed your time with us. Yes, to accommodate guests as best as possible with all the rain we've had this year, at times we have moved guests to other sites. We apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused due to the lack of cable TV, but believe the drier site was going to be more ideal during your stay.

We usually go to the Warren Dunes State Park when I'm in the area but was very pleasantly surprised by the St. Joseph's KOA! Despite the rain, we had a blast. It's so nice to have so many family activities at our disposal for free! The pool and hot tub were a perfect respite for us and we really enjoyed the giant bouncy pillow and the mini golf! All of our neighbors were great, too.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you were pleased with all our campground offers and our "Full Access Rates." Rather than making guests feel nickled-and-dimed by paying for each thing separately or discovering there are hidden resort fees when they arrive, once your reservation rate is determined, you and your family have full access to all our amenities (hence the name). We look forward to seeing you again!
Jun 25, 2018
The campground itself isn't bad, it's nice that there are so many trees at the sites. Amenities are nice. The downside is that it's so close to the interstate. The traffic and semi braking was really loud and hard to sleep. The bathrooms were very clean (great showers), but it was confusing when the cleaning times were as they were closed multiple times a day and not during posted hours.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry it appears your stay was not enjoyable. While the highway noise at times is noticeable, most guests balance it with the convenience of our location and all that our campground and area attractions offer. We also apologize if our commitment to maintaining clean restrooms during our peak season at times caused you an inconvenience. However, with two facilities, one is always open.
Jun 25, 2018
When we arrived our assigned campsite was under water. The staff upgraded us to a premium site at no extra charge.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were glad we could accommodate you during your stay.
Jun 25, 2018
New deluxe sites are wonderful. Site was level and dry which was a pleasant surprise since they have received so much rain this season.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our Deluxe patio sites are truly the best there is, and we're glad you could enjoy them! As with all our other upgrades, we are committed to excellence and were pleased to build those sites this spring with high-grade materials and careful design to ensure a great camping experience.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

For our guests who are travelling a long ways, we are glad to be able to provide a clean, peaceful environment with exceptional guest service that helps you get settled in for the night. We look forward to hosting you again should your travels bring your back our way.

You are doing a GREAT job with this KOA. It's nice to see new things whenever we come. Clean grounds. Friendly and helpful staff. A nice place to stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It means a lot to us when guests who have been coming for years offer encouragement to all the fresh and new upgrades we've done over the past two years. We can't think of a better way to earn your repeat business!
Jun 24, 2018
Came up to visit museums in the area. Campground was nice, had level spots, and hook up was easy. The pool area was clean and the hot tub was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Michigan's Great Southwest has so many hidden treasures, so we're glad you found a few. We are also glad you enjoyed our campground and the popular amenities like our pool and hot tub!

We are glad you had a nice time, despite the shore visit. Hopefully you'll have another time to visit us again for a longer period. We will look forward to that opportunity.

Very helpful staff, beautiful park like setting, one of the best KOA’s we’ve ever stayed at!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your high praise! With over 500 KOAs across the country, we have plenty of friendly-competition with our fellow franchisees to make our campgrounds great for our guests. Thanks for ranking us one of the best!
Jun 21, 2018
This our 7th year in a row staying here. All of the improvements are awesome . We will be back for sure next year
Jun 21, 2018
Facilities were clean, and staff was great!
Jun 21, 2018
The staff and owners were great. A couple of items need addressing though. We were in lot 82. That site should be eliminated. It is too close to the other sites. The sewer connection is practically under the other sites picnic table and too far away from the useful parking area. It is not level. This caused me to have to stop at the dump station, which blocks the road while dumping.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. We recognize that some of our pull thru sites are not as wide as others. This can be the case even more with slide outs and/or depending on how guests set up their trailer closer to one side versus the other. Additionally, as guests move picnic tables around, it sounds like it was not in an ideal location for the use of your site. We apologize for the inconvenience
Jun 20, 2018
Fantastic location, close to St Joseph and silver beach. Great amenities and activities for the whole family.
Jun 20, 2018
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean, and evenings were quiet. My family and I had the best time! Can’t wait to go back. Thank you!
Jun 20, 2018
we and entire group loved our stay at this KOA.
Jun 20, 2018
I only stayed one night after traveling by bicycle. I stayed in a rustic cabin; nothing fancy, but inexpensive, clean and with AC! The facilities are obviously not new, but everything was very clean and very well maintained. The staff was helpful and friendly!

Everyone was friendly and helpful! One of the workers even came back after dropping off firewood and raked up our fire pit for us beceause there were leaves all around it. So thoughtful! We would definitely like to come back.
Jun 19, 2018
Love this KOA! It was a hot weekend, so we appreciated the large shade trees and the refreshing pool! Karla (one of the owners) was a constant, joyful presence in the store and around the park. You can tell that she really wants to make her guests feel welcomed! Loved all the great food and shopping items in the store. It's probably the best camp store we've been to!!!! Will be back soon!

Working in the outdoor hospitality industry takes a lot of hard work, and passion. We've often told people, you can't fake-out your guests. If you don't truly love the work and serving others, they'll know. We're glad you were able to experience the genuineness of our hospitality.
Jun 19, 2018
Great fun place. Couldn’t believe how quiet the park was . Was there on a HOT weekend so loved the air conditioning in the cabin,

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are pleased you had a fun time. As a family-friends campground, we are so glad when guests enjoy themselves, but not in a way that causes a disruption to others. This level of respect for one another brings an atmosphere of peace to everyone throughout the park. We're also glad you enjoyed the cabin accommodations and the comfort the air-conditioner brought you on a really hot weekend.

Great time like always . Thank You.

I stayed a week. Very enjoyable. Beautiful campground and very friendly and helpful staff. I upgraded to a deluxe site and I was very glad I did.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for being with us. Our new Deluxe Patio RV sites have indeed been a BIG hit with our guests. The enhanced fire pit and outdoor furniture truly makes for an exceptional camping experience.
Jun 19, 2018
This is our first camping trip to the St Joseph area. The KOA in Coloma St Joseph is fantastic and is one of our new favorites. The new deluxe site we had was level and beautifully landscaped with the new patio. The owners are amazing and provided wonderful service. You are only 15 minutes from downtown St Joseph with Amazing beaches, great food and nightlife. Can't wait to come back.

Your experience is what we like to call, "Pure Michigan!" See you soon!

Friendly staff, helped us park our trailer (our first time backing into a site) clean facilities, even with the rain. Surprisingly quiet, for the closeness to the highway. Shady sites. We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were glad our staff could provide you assistance in backing up your trailer, and increase your confidence that you can do it! Everyone had to be a first-timer at some point, so we're glad we could be a positive part of your journey of becoming a seasoned RVer!

Everybody was very nice. Mini golf could use a redo. My site flooded. Store is very small.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

While we continue to work hard to make several improvements, including addressing water issues on some sites, we will keep in mind your suggestion regarding the mini-golf. As for our remodeled store, we believe we created a more inviting and open space, and have even been able to increase our product lines. As avid campers ourselves, we've seen hundreds of stores, and are very proud of ours.

Very friendly staff.

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.
