We had a wonderful weekend. This beautiful campground has a lot of mature trees making nice shady sites. My kids loved all the activities. The new owners and staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed it so much we stayed for late checkout on Sunday. The owners said they have many plans for more improvements, the bathrooms are next. It is within minutes of many nice beaches.

Great getaway. So close to Lake Michigan and shops. Pizza kitchen was an unexpected surprise and made our arrival awesome. With delivery to our campsite we were just in place and leveled when it arrived and didn’t have to worry about what to feed the troops. Definitely will stay again

Glad to know our on-site specialty, made-to-order, Hunt Brother's pizza was a big hit with your troop, especially as you arrived here for your first night. If you were anywhere else, you really would be "roughing it!" :-)

We spent a great weekend. The grounds were clean, the staff friendly and helpful. Only suggestion would be to clean the handicapped bath house more often.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate your constructive feedback. In addition to our rigorous cleaning schedule, we are currently in the process of making repairs/modifications to the flooring to improve the drainage of excess water that will go a long way towards helping them stay cleaner in the process.

Owners, people who work there are friendly and helpful. Clean sites, washroom/showers. Great place to stay
Sep 17, 2018
Very friendly and helpful staff. Me and my 2 highschool teenagers had a great time on the inflatable trampoline, riding the trike-bikes, playing giant Jenga, and eating ice cream and donuts from the camp store.

Stayed in site 86. Could not extend awning because it hit tree. Showers and bathrooms were dirty. Spider webs everywhere. Dirt in corners and on baseboards. Cracks in floor. Typical of most KOA’s we have visited lately. Too many cheaper and nicer private campgrounds to stay in KOA anymore

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our tress provide wonderful character and cool shade in our park. Considering that no other guests on that site this season reported having trouble opening their awnings, we're uncertain whether there really is an issue that we can address. Please know we are committed to clean facilities and are in the process of making repairs to the flooring for the benefit of all our future guests.

Another great weekend for my son and I at Coloma KOA! Mark and Karla are doing a fantastic job upgrading the campground and providing age appropriate activities to make the visits fun. See you again next Spring!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. It's nice to know all our hard work is appreciated and it brings us great joy to be one of your family traditions!

Very unhappy with the site. The fire pit was nearly in the wooded area so unable to light one due to how close it was to the wooded area and the mosquitoes were so bad. Shaded most of the day with no sunlight and no grassy area whatsoever. Had to go buy another extension cord so we could hook up to the electric because it was more than 100 foot away.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our wooded sites have been extremely popular this season. While we take measures to reduce the mosquitoes, we cannot take blame for the recent rain and warm temperatures that caused a resurgence of the pests this year. Most campers carry an extra chord, so we are glad you now have one in your supply of gear. However, to provide some assistance, we would have been happy to let you borrow one.
Sep 17, 2018
It was clean and well kept, easy in and out close to highway. The down sides when I made reservations I was told that there was only 4 sites left for 9-14-18 thru 9-16-18 I get it! Upon getting there late Friday night the place was half full and was 3/4 full for our stay was forced to take a '40 deep lot for a '32 RV dump station are lacking also very small no room to pass for RV's one lane.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would never misrepresent our availability. During your stay ALL of our RV sites were booked and the empty sites you saw were our premium water/electric tent sites (20amp). Please know, we were pleased we could accommodate your late reservation and that you found our location to be convenient. However, to secure full hook-up sites we would encourage you to make more advance plans.

We had a wonderful stay. Very friendly staff.

Great campground. Only wish the hot tub was open after labor day.
Sep 16, 2018
Nice and clean. Nice shade
Sep 14, 2018
Been staying @this Koa for about 8 years. Happy with the campground & nice to see new owners are making improvements
Sep 14, 2018
Great improvements have been made since our last stay 2 years ago .The owners and the whole staff were so nice and helpful. This will be our home in Michigan when we visit.
Sep 14, 2018
Good variety of sites/types. Everything is handy, so it was perfect for our short stopover.
Sep 14, 2018
Hosts/check in was very friendly and made sure I had everything I needed to be comfortable. This was my very first stay at a KOA and they were thorough and made me feel welcome!
Sep 14, 2018
One of my best camping experiences and will definitely be on my top list for staying at a well kept campground. Would highly recommend ! The Lemoine’s are what I would say model and professional caretakers and KOA is fortunate to have their name represented by these folks.. VH

Wow! We're blushing. Thank you!

Wifi was impossibly slow until early morning and the office closed at (actually before) dusk.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry to hear that you had issues with our WiFi. Our system is actually quite strong with multiple repeaters throughout the park. However, we openly state that we do not have bandwidth for streaming videos or other high-data activity. Posted hours for our General store is 9am-8pm during the fall season. We apologize for any inconvenience, but encourage guests to plan accordingly.

We made reservations hours before arriving and am so glad we took the opportunity to experience this beautiful park within our community. Our stay was quite, peaceful and plenty for the kids to keep busy outside. Definitely on our "list" to visit again.
Sep 13, 2018
Great place to stay! New owners have made major improvements and are continuing to make more. Hopefully they will fix the holes in the interior road just east of the pool. You do have to go through them on your way out of the pull through sites.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for recognizing the improvements we're making. Due to the extent of the work we'll be performing to make long-term repairs that will address both flooding issues and the damaged road in that area, we are waiting until we close this season to start that project. We guarantee it will be better than new next year!
Sep 13, 2018
Have stayed here for years. New owners are making many much-needed upgrades and changes. Nice people / friendly and helpful staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad to be your home away from home!

Campground was beautiful, clean and quiet. Friendly staff. Will definitely be back!
Sep 12, 2018
Great! Mark was nice and very easy to talk too we will definitely stay again when we pass thru the area.
Sep 11, 2018
As always, the owners and staff are very pleasant, and treat you like a friend. Couldn’t ask for better people. Have stayed here several times and will stay again for sure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the kind words. We are pleased to know that all of our efforts help you and your family enjoy your time with us, and are honored to know you'll be back. Speaking of which, guests can now make reservations for all dates into our 2019 season! Give us a call or book online to get the best sites!

Great campground, friendly owners! We have 3 small children and they love the jumping pillow and riding their bikes around the grounds. This was our third trip and we will be back every year!

The bathroom/cleaned but smelled horribly in fact the back bathrooms were so bad they were making me gag bathrooms had mold on the shower curtains it was like they cleaned all the bathrooms with the dirty mop and bucket totally unsanitary The sign said they were open to October 15 but all the amenities were closed pool hot tub snack bar etc. but I was charged a reg $

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Respectfully, your harsh comments and extremely low rating is simply not a worthy characterization of our park. Our staff take great pride and work diligently to maintain our facilities. While our pool is only open during the summer months (as advertised), our spring and fall rates are discounted. Lastly, all other amenities are available to guests throughout the entire season.
Sep 08, 2018
Campground layed out nicely. Roads are a little narrow and rough. In house pizza was good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good location for touring.
Sep 07, 2018
We had a fabulous time! Karla and Mark along with their staff and volunteers make camping a relaxing and enjoyable activity. They definitely go the extra mile in making sure all their guests are creating lasting memories. Can't wait to back for the Harvest/Halloween/Chili Cook-off weekend in October!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fantastic! We look forward to seeing you again yet this fall. It will be a great time!
Sep 07, 2018
Very friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Kids and adults had a blast. My only issue was that we assumed the pancake breakfast donation was optional. We only learned it was required when we were asked to pay upon arriving. It was awkward for us since we planned to donate, but not the amount that was being asked of us. Perhaps some more clarity for future guests would be appreciated.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback regarding the pancake breakfast. This is a tradition we do every holiday weekend, to raise money for KOA Care camps... a charity that helps send kids with cancer to specialized camps across north America. We will look at ways we can help better communicate the recommended donation, but still appreciate your willingness to support this great cause.

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.
