Very well kept facility. Lots to do. It was a little loud from the road construction but I’m sure that will end soon!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed our park. As for the road noise we say... AMEN! And AMEN!!! We too are hopeful the construction will soon be completed and reduce the noise caused by cars going over rumble strips due to lane closures.

We love this KOA! We have stayed 3 times in the last 2 years and each time Mark and his family have made some sort of addition or improvement. The staff are all very attentive and kind. We look forward to coming back next year to see what will be new.

friendly staff, great activities for the kids, clean and convenient to our destination. the only thing i would suggest is to pay more attention to the bathrooms by cabins 6-9. they are clean but not well kept. the bathrooms by the pool are in better condition. looking forward to next summer to come back. thanks so much.

Very nice campgrounds. So much to do and see and the new owners are awesome. Take my word for it you won't be disappointed here.

Great fun with all the kid activities! We camped in the fall and loved the activities. I like the sites with the Astro turf pad.

Very pleasant and helpful staff. Made for a great base to visit South Haven and family from.

Too much highway noise, train noise, surrounding and limited open facilities for the price. No restful and limited things to do in the area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

WOW. While we acknowledge the highway and train noise at times is noticeable, we are stunned by your comment that there is little to do in the area. As one of the most popular vacation destinations in Michigan for millions of people each year from all across the country and the world... we simply don't know what to say. However, we do hope in your future travels, you find what you're looking for.

Repeat stay at this KOA for us. Unfortunately there was a very loud wedding Saturday night in an adjacent farm that pretty much ruined our camping enjoyment for the entire evening.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for coming back to camp with us. While our neighbor's generous offer to a family friend to host their wedding on the farm was honorable, we fully agree that the volume of the music was excessive. We apologize for the less than desirable experience you had and are working with our neighbors to prevent any similar occurrence in the future.

Another great weekend at the KOA! Mark, Karla, and staff are always pleasant and actually seem to genuinely care about their guests. Although only about 15-20 mins. from home it has become one of our favorite camping spots! Thanks again!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for making us your home away from home... even if you are just a few minutes away. Our staff seem to genuinely care about our guests, because we actually DO care about our guests, and we're committed to providing you with an exceptional camping experience that helps you build lasting family memories!

Within the first 20 minutes... we were over charged and then shown a campsite in which the hookups were on the wrong side. We were told that we could BUY longer hookup (water Cable TV and power) in order to connect. The connecting post should be on the same side as the hookup outlets on any rig. This backward setup caused all sorts of confusion.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are disappointed by your review. The incorrect charge was reversed immediately, and the issues you experienced were originally due to the fact that you pulled the wrong way into a back-in site which you reserved. Once you were turned correctly, we let you borrow equipment. We have literally had hundreds of guests on that same site with no issues.

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.
Sep 10, 2019
� 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)!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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�

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.

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
Jul 04, 2020
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!!!
