I did not sleep much due to yelling teenagers from around 10 pm to 12:30 am. The floor of the cabin was very sandy, which made me uneasy about the sanitation of the cabin prior to my arrival. I chose KOA due to my good experiences in the past, but will not patronize KOA in the future.

Due to government restrictions, you were the only guest in the cabin this season. Past and recent guests are well acquainted with the the high standards used to clean, disinfect and maintain our facilities. While we are not perfect, it is more likely you tracked in the sand when you arrived late at

We were in a site located next to a nature trail which was convenient for our pet. We had pizza made by the KOA and it was delicious. The staff delivered it directly to our site. The rules in place followed CDC recommendations for the COVID-19 virus. We felt safe and enjoyed our visit!

These are certainly unnerving times for many. As leaders in the outdoor hospitality industry, we have been part of developing and implementing "best practices" that promote the health and well-being of our staff and guests. In addition to the mental health benefits of being surrounded by our 40-acre

Our stay was great! Even with rain, we enjoyed our visit! We definitely will return this summer and fall. Your campground is very clean and care of your grounds is beautiful. Next time we’ll bring the grandkids! You feel like family here, and they are the friendliest owners! Thank you Karla & Mark!

This might be the best maintained park we have ever visited. The owners should be very proud of what they have done at this park to make campers life more enjoyable. We are looking forward to returning back some day soon.

Great location and friendly staff/owners. Many sites are low lying and very wet though and Wish they had more sites with concrete patios. Unfortunately due to the Governor’s order we were not able to enjoy the area as we normally would have.

Traveled to Michigan and stayed here because it's close to Benton Harbor. Nice clean place. Restrooms & playground closed because of the Covid stuff but we will come back again.

We were pleased to be able to provide you with our minimum basic operations during Michigan's ongoing State of Emergency as you were traveling through our area in your RV. In recent days, we have reopened our restrooms and playground, and have cleaned and maintained them according to our high standa

Staff was friendly. Most services shut down due to Gov Whitmer. Sites 104 - 107 were very tight, and had pooling water.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have been advocating to serve guests at private campgrounds, and glad we could be here for you. Recently, the entire state has seen a deluge of rain, making it challenging for the saturated ground to take on more water. To assist, although we offered to move you to a dryer site before you even s

This was a nice campground with nice owners. The camp site was nice. The cable was not working and nothing was offered due to this inconvenience. Also, i reserved a pull through and saw a charge on my credit card that i did not authorize. When I asked about it, i was upgraded to a deluxe site. I did not reserve the deluxe site and I didn’t like the fact that they put in in a different spot charg

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for being with us. We apologize for the inconvenience that occurred. As you're aware, we immediately worked to fix the problem with our cable, which was completed within a day. We were also happy to fulfill your request to upgrade your reservation!

Very nice patio sites with backing up to the woods. The owners were very friendly and helpful to us. We're definitely going back again later this year.

Love the improvements and updates you are making to the campground.

Beautiful campground and the new walking trails were awesome. The owners and all the workers were super nice. As an added bonus we found some morel mushrooms while walking in the woods. Thanks Mark and Karla you are the best.

We work hard to tend to the grounds and maintain a setting that allows guests to relax, and are especially glad we could be here for your during these challenging days. Enjoy the mushrooms.

The staff was great, the grounds were in excellent condition! You can really tell that the team that works there really cares about the property. Also, the nature trail in the back was a really great bonus!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed your time with us, and were able to be one of our first guests to explore our newly opened, wooded nature trail. It's one more way we fulfill the KOA mission, "Connecting people with nature and each other."

Nice park! The owners are making this place something special. Well maintained and making updates. Lots of green space and nature trails. They were able to accommodate us during the Covid crisis so no facilities were available but we plan to return soon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were pleased to have you stay with us. As you know, we are currently limited to the minimum basic services. We had to close all communal areas due to Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Executive Orders and ongoing guidelines from the CDC. We look forward to welcoming you back when we are allowe

Spent time at Coloma/St. Joe KOA on our way up north. Even with all of the complications going on right now, our stay was great. Very nice staff and owners, I highly recommend this park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your kind words. We are glad we could be here for you in your travels and greatly appreciate your encouragement to us during these challenging times.

This has to be one of the most welcoming, friendly parks we’ve stayed at! So clean & beautiful even before the busy season starts. It looks like they put a lot into maintaining entire property inside & out. Would love to come back & enjoy in the future. Nice!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are genuinely committed to providing guests with an exceptional camping experience, and we're pleased to serve you, especially during the national emergency. We would love to have you come back and be our guests again when the uncertainty of these days is behind us.

We were heading home to Petoskey from AZ, needed a place to stay for one night during the pandemic. We were put in the back with no one nearby. How awesome was that. Felt very safe and comfortable.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Even in the midst of all the uncertainty, we were glad you enjoyed our peaceful setting, and the support we were able to provide. We certainly look forward to the opportunity to see you again.

We were only there overnight but our stay was enjoyable. We will return.

Beautiful campground, outstanding hosts! The owners made us feel so welcome as we traveled home during the Pandemic. We were able to rest and enjoy a respite at this beautiful campground among the trees before continuing our journey home. Highly recommend!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were glad we could be here for you, and we are glad you found our park, and minimum basic services, to be an oasis in your travels back to Michigan.

Thank you for being open for essential workers during this time of uncertainty ! Our campground was closed in Indiana and we were able to get a spot at your KOA which help us immensely. Nice park, wonderful staff. Thank you

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was our honor to host you during these unusual times. With many Governors failing to immediately understand the needs of Americans living full-time in RVs, we were pleased we could advocate for you all and be open to provide essential services. We hope you'll consider coming back.

Spacious and clean. Mark(Owner) greeted us with our registration and directed us to our site area. Convenient and just off I -196.

As Snow Birds attemping to reach TC in these very uncertain times your park had opened earlier than usual. THANK YOU so much. You were a lifesaver. And so friendly and encouraging. A very bright spot in our trip from LA.
Mar 31, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, this park opened early to accommodate RVer's trying to get home and needing a place to overnight. Prices were drastically reduced, attesting to the good intentions and altruism of the owner/management. Thanks a bundle! Being able to overnight here made our trip home much safer, because we really needed the rest, and there were no other reasonable options.

While we could never have imagined this is the way we would start the 2020 camping season, we are pleased we could be here to help during your travels.

We love this campground! This out 5th time here and we will be coming again in three weeks. The people here are amazing and the service is always above and beyond. Sites are a good size with several having full hookup. Tons for the kiddos to do plus the parents have fun too. Might be the best campground in Michigan!

This KOA was wonderful. We stayed for 4 nights and everything was kept immaculate during our entire visit. Our kids enjoyed the pool, pedal bikes and all of the kid friendly activities. Wonderful shade trees cover the whole area. Bathrooms were always neat and clean. Owners and staff on site at all times, including over night. Very nice camp store with lots of supplies, ice cream and yummy pizza that they deliver right to your site.p Great proximity to beach towns and Lake Michigan. Only complaint would be some sites directly across from the pool/office had utility hookups that had to cross under the camper. I would not lower my rating based on this, I understand it would be difficult to upgrade them with all of the tree roots. Highly recommend!!!
