This is a nice park with easy access to beaches and shopping. Easy on and off I-196.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As the old saying goes, "location, location, location!" In addition to all the great amenities at or park in a relaxing and family-friendly atmosphere, we truly have unrivaled access to the area attractions, including the beaches, orchards and award-winning vineyards.

Very pleasant staff. Nicely maintained with clean restrooms. Only negative is the road noise from I-196

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed the service provided by our staff and the cleanliness of our facilities. The highway noise has been more noticeable at times this year due to the delayed in completion of the construction. We too are hoping the Michigan Department of Transportation finds a contractor that can get the job done!

We have always enjoyed our stays here. However, this year there were two large groups of tenters that were extremely loud during the nighttime hours (3:30 am). They must have been told to keep it down because they were reasonably quiet the second night. It won’t keep us from coming back next year-we’ve already booked! Did notice a significant price increase for next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoy being with us for one of your annual camping trips. We were also glad we could address the noise that occurred past quiet hours, to ensure it did not occur again during your stay. As for next year, our prices are being adjusted to match the high-quality experience our guests receive in our campground as a result of the numerous recent and ongoing investments.

We’ve stayed here several times, and like the proximity to downtown St. Joe. Nice park, but would prefer a site away from the dumping station next time. Also, the men’s shower needs more than one hook to accommodate towel, clothing, toiletries.

� peaceful nd restful. Just what we needed. Check in ladies were so helpful and cheerful. Will go back next season of we are able!!
Sep 10, 2019
Best of the best. Mostly will go again.
Sep 10, 2019
Spacious sites, good activites for kids (although we did not have any with us), well groomed campgrounds, picked up your trash, great staff, check out time was 12 instead of 11 which we really liked!

Nice clean and rather quiet older place. Rather tight if you are in a very large rig. Could use some updating but over all a nice place to stay close to the lake.
Sep 09, 2019
What a perfectly enjoyable and relaxing stay we had! The hosts and employees are such friendly people, and so helpful. And our pet iguana was welcomed no problem! The campgrounds were very well kept, and very easy to get in & out of. We weren't sure how well we would like a major franchise campground, but Coloma / St. Joseph KOA was a real pleasure. We will definitely be back again (and again)!

We were so pleased you (and your exotic pet) enjoyed your time with us. As part of the largest network of independently owned and operated campgrounds in north America, we are proud to provide a higher level of quality and services, and look forward to seeing you again.

I stayed for four weeks+ and truly enjoyed. Kids loved the amenities and the short distance from St. Joe. I found some great places to eat in Coloma. Mark and his staff were friendly and very accommodating.
Sep 08, 2019
Owners and staff very friendly and helpful.Great peaceful area to relax.Very clean camp sites and facilities.
Sep 08, 2019
Large pull through with easy ute access. Great for the dog as plenty of trails to walk.
Sep 07, 2019
We felt this was a nice KOA. A little far from town but for the short time we were there, it was not a problem.
Sep 07, 2019
A nice shaded campground. Clean. Friendly hosts. The sites were very well kept. They also had new picnic tables. Restrooms were clean. They have a camp store that has just about everything. We ordered a pizza from their store and we were pleasantly surprised how good it was. We had the thin crust cheese. Nice crispy crust. We are from the Chicago area and very picky about our pizza.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your time with us. It's also great to hear that as pizza connoisseurs from Chicago you enjoyed our Hunt Brothers pizza. In addition to using only high-quality ingredients and delivering it to your site right after it is fresh out of the oven, we believe part of the secret is ordering it with the extra cheese. YUM!

Great friendly�
Sep 05, 2019
We stayed here for 3 nights leading up to the Labor Day weekend because we wanted to see Lake Michigan. And we did! It is truly a family campground. There are limited 50 amp, pull thru sites but a lot of cabins, tent sites and 30 amp towable sites. Because it was a little tight getting out of our site, we backed out and then hooked up. It was so nice to see so many families camping.
Sep 04, 2019
Great entertainment for kids, friendly & informative staff, outstanding owners. Campgrounds very clean, including bathrooms. Paved roads throughout park a big plus.
Sep 04, 2019
A favourite KOA ! Is our third trip this summer season!
Sep 04, 2019
We had a premium water/electric site and we really enjoyed it! The swing was nice to have and so was the fire pit. It was close to everything! The office staff are so friendly. The dump site was in a really bad location though and that kind of put a damper on things, as well as the many people cutting through our site and the loudness of people at the pool. With that said, we will come back!
Sep 04, 2019
This is hands down our favorite place to stay, small with great sites. The new owners are doing a wonderful job updating the place! Can’t wait till next year!!!
Sep 04, 2019
Lots of great activities for kids. Stayed 4 nights over Labor Day weekend 2018 and 2019. Will be back next year.
Sep 04, 2019
Really nice the owner are super nice if you have a problem they take care of it. We liked it so much we made our reservations for 2 stays next year
Sep 04, 2019
We were there for only one night. The campground is beautiful and very well kept!
Sep 04, 2019
The staff were extremely helpful when we required them. In particular Mr Little, we feel, went out of his way to lend a hand and his expertise to fix a plumbing problem which arose during our stay. Our thanks to him and all the staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you found our staff to be helpful. As the Team Leader of our grounds/maintenance staff, Mr. Little is invaluable to our operation. We are glad he could serve you in way that exceeded your expectations.

We had a great stay! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Lots of amenities! We had trouble squeezing our rig into a tight spot. Could've done a better job assigning spots although they were full-up. Owners were very friendly amidst challenges of an older park they are trying to improve-and have done a nice job in a few years. Very family friendly!!! Have already booked spots for next year.
Sep 03, 2019
This is a great campground with so much to do. The staff was super friendly and they were always willing to help. The sites were a little close together but it was not too bad. We were lucky to have very friendly people around us. The bathrooms and showers were super clean. Did not use the pool or hot tub but it looked very nice. Thanks for a great stay!
Sep 03, 2019
Planning on coming back next year. Hopefully the road construction on the highway will be done - that was the biggest issue hearing all that rumbling all the time. The campground itself was VERY NICE and we had a great time. Also the owner gave us some great tips on visiting some of the beach towns.
Sep 03, 2019
Wonderful time clean facility and awesome activities
Sep 03, 2019
This is our second stay this season, we feel st home and look forward to return multiple times next year. The Owners are warm and welcoming. We love the improvements they have made, it shows they care about their guests / campers.
Sep 03, 2019
We love how easy and comfortable this stay was! Very family friendly. Our kids were able to roam on their own (they're 13 & 9) but were never far away as all the fun stuff was very close. All the guests we encountered were relaxed and friendly, some even stopping to chat for a bit. The owners have done an excellent job creating the perfect camping spot!
Sep 03, 2019
This place is our go-to and has been for years now. The owners are the best people you can meet, and truly have the heart to serve and create an experience for your family with every stay. This culture is clearly passed on to every staff member you encounter, and customer service is top notch. As for the amenities, our family can stay here, not leave the property, and have fun all week! -Ben S.

Great campground , have done lots of improvements, nice family atmosphere, Prices are getting high up $70 per night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed our campground and amenities. Due to the improvements we have made over the past three years, we have dramatically increased the value of the experience guests receive when coming here. Therefore, our rates (especially during the high-demand holiday weekends) are reflective of these amenities, the services we offer, and are commensurate with our peer competition.

Great experience in the Glamping Tent. However the fireplace shouldn't be used or considered as a heater. It is not meant to heatup a whole room. I recommend to equip the tent with a REAL heater. We had to run to Walmart and purchase one for our stay cuz we froze the first night, even with the fireplace on at full blast. Once we used the real heater, the rest of our nights were comfortable!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your glamping experience. As we shared, they are new this year, and we're learning from our guests as the weather begins to shift to cooler nights. Although you did not purchase the linen package we offer, we provided extra blankets at no additional costs, and are evaluating other heating options. However, guests should be prepared and remember, it is still a tent.

great customer service, we'll be returning soon
Sep 02, 2019
Very clean ans well maintained..beautiful grounds..very friendly staff...was very impressed with the frequency of the water checks of the pool and hot tub.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The pool and hot tub are a very popular summertime amenity that we offer our guests. Maintaining it to be clean and inviting is a passion that ensures you have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Beautiful, well kept campground in a gorgeous area. Very kid friendly, clean, quiet, and located close to everything!!
Sep 01, 2019
Loved the friendliness of this campground management. Very clean sites, clean bathrooms and kudos to the camp helping us keep our site when we fell a day behind in our travels. And we weren't able to try it, but the pizza smelled amazing!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our Hunt Brothers pizza is amazing! Sorry you didn't have any, but glad you could enjoy the free smells! :-)

This was our first visit. The campground seemed very neat and clean. Store was well stocked and had an area that sold pizza, fresh donuts, and soft serve ice cream. We left just as Labor Day was getting in full swing, and it did not seem that there were enough restrooms to accommodate the number of guests as there were lines to use them. Club house was nicely updated. WiFi worked well.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your time with us over Labor Day. The packed house over the holiday does add to the use of our facilities. However, as a licensed campground, we are compliant with our industry state regulations which requires us to have adequate number of facilities for our guests.
Sep 01, 2019
I loved the camp grounds and cabins. However wish the staff was more friendly and helpful. I got a sheet of stated rules and regulations and went over them with one lady who took me on a tour on the cabin I would be staying in. Says smoking is okay outside but not inside. So I do so. Than receive a $50 charge for smoking inside. Not acceptable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We maintain our facilities for the enjoyment of our guests, and smoking is NOT permitted in any of our cabins. When there is evidence that it occurred, we spend extra time ensuring it is cleaned and ready for our arriving guests. Hotels more often charge up to $250.00. Rather than apologizing for issuing a $50 damage fee, we are considering increasing it to deter the behavior in the future.

We always have a great stay here. It's a nice clean quiet park. It's near St. Joe, South Haven, and Saugatuck. We love this park.
Aug 31, 2019
We have stayed here for several years. The improvements Mark & Carla have made to this campground are impressive. Great people, perfect location for us.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The last three years has been a labor of love, and we feel blessed to be able to serve our guests through the improvements we've made. We believe it honors the time and money you spend with us, and is deserving of a quality experience.

Enjoyed the family friendly campground very much. There is a lot to do for all ages. I like the smaller cozy feel and the friendliness of all the staff workers. The campground is well-kept and clean. The cabin we stayed in was very nice.

camp ground was very well maintained washrooms were clean sunsets were perfect over the lake

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a very dedicated Housekeeping team that take great pride in their work to ensure our guests experience clean and inviting restrooms. Jan and Roger, our Head Housekeepers, are at times the unsung heroes of our staff, so we wish to applaud their work here and now, along with you!

Fantastic place for camping. Conveniently located between St Joseph and South Haven, two of Southwestern Michigan's best tourist destinations. Plenty of on-site things to do at the campground, too!

We had a great time. Many positive improvements since we last stayed here five years ago. The new owners are doing a terrific job. Their entire staff were wonderful. We would definitely stay again.
