Wonderful campground and great hosts!
Oct 14, 2019
Our first time Fall camping and we had a blast! Tons of great activities and the hosts and staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed in a glamping tent and loved the space it provided and the comfy beds. It was chilly so we picked up a small space heater and it was perfect. We opted for the Linen Package, since we were arriving late and it was super helpful to have the beds made when we arrived.

I would have given 5 stars but we were taken aback by the bible on the nightstand in our glamping tent AND Christian music pumping loudly in the women's bathroom at all hours (but hot in the men's bathroom? hmm). I was thinking of having my 50th birthday group book the glamping sites but am now re-thinking. We prefer places that don't push a religious or political agenda.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for your feedback. While we understand that consumers have choices, as private-business owners, we too have choices with the atmosphere we seek to create at our campground. The Bible on the nightstand is a standard of hospitality that has been common in hotels for years. We are also licensed to play music, and we're pleased that most of our guests share with us that they are encouraged.

Some of the pull through were surrounded by water due to the heavy rain. Owners are super welcoming and helpful . Wonderful, clean KK and bathrooms!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are pleased you enjoyed our hospitality and clean facilities. You'll also be pleased to know that as the rain let up, the puddles have perked into the ground. While we would love to provide 75 degrees and sun everyday, unfortunately, we have little control over the weather as suspect is the case for you where you live as well. :-)

We had a great time. The cabin we had was cozy, tucked back into the woods, very clean and super quiet. The bathrooms were very clean. Staff was super friendly. Lisa checked us in and was professional, charming, and very pleasant. Staff members, Roger and Jan were so gracious to us. The park is beautiful. Nice job everyone. We will be back for sure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are pleased you enjoyed the professionalism, charm and graciousness of our staff. They are indeed amazing, and we're glad we're not the only ones to say it. We look forward to seeing you again!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pull through sites are very close together. Grass needed mowing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you were disappointed with your stay, but we're a little confused by your comment as our records show you were in a cabin. As most guests will attest, we also work hard to maintain our grounds. However, at times during the peak summer season, mowing can be challenging when there's little time between guests, especially on our most popular sites.

We have been coming the same weekend for the last six years to celebrate our family day and we love all of the activities and the friendly staff!

I come every year and love the warmth and family atmosphere here. Clean, well maintained facility and very helpful staff!! Highly recommended!

We had a great time. The delux cabin was perfect for our family of 5. Indoor and outdoor spaces were wonderful. We hope to come back again.

Another great year in the books! We live the little rustic cam in’s and the upgrades they are doing at the campground. I still wish the cabins had an exterior outlet and the option to rent a mini fridge. But other than that, everything is perfect at the Coloma KOA. The owners & employees are so nice as is everyone that vamps there. Can’t wait to go back next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate the idea of the mini-fridge, but due to limitations with the electrical capacity at our camping cabins, we have intentionally chosen not to add mini-fridges at this time. That being said, we're glad you had a great time. Although your annual camping trip is "in the books," we still have more great camping available through October 14! Perhaps we'll see you again! :-)

We had a great time. Very friendly people and lots to do. Great location, short drive to Silver Beach and the town of St. Joseph. I would have liked the campsites to be a little more wooded to have more privacy, but that's the only improvement I would make. We will be back.

We stayed in a cabin while two other of our families stayed on campsites. It was a great stay! Only wish we could have stayed longer. Mark and Carla are the best and we look forward to staying next year. :0)

very nice, the new owners have really made it a great place to stay.

We enjoyed our time at your KOA. We liked the balloon jumping activity for our grand daughters. We like the family focus that you have. However, the far restrooms were dirty constantly. The mattress in the cabin was not comfortable. We still had a good time!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are pleased you had a nice time, and appreciate your feedback. We strive to maintain clean and comfortable facilities, and take care of our restrooms multiple times a day, especially during busy periods. We also purchased all new mattresses to withstand heavy commercial use. While we have not recently received similar complaints, we regret you appear to have had an unfavorable experience.
Jun 24, 2019
love the improvements that are being made. Have camp there for 30 years off and on.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are honored to have you camp with us, and hope our recent renovations will have you wanting to come again, and again!

The location is great. The hosts are better. Met Mark our first morning. Had some minor issues that he took care of personally. Talking to Mark the next day, he mentioned the plans they had to upgrade the place. Excited to see the end results.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are pleased to have you with us and excited to share with you our continued improvements. Our entire staff recognize that you are taking time from your busy lives to be with us, and we are committed to providing you with an exceptional experience.

Nice wooded camp sites. Very clean facilities and cute little gift shop:) Our kids love the park, bounce pillow etc. This is the only koa we have stayed at, however, we have camped at other parks. This is a great family friendly environment and we feel thankful that we happened to find this little gem of a place:):)

Power went out and we were only offered free coffee- left KOA at 6AM to go get warm at a McD’s.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The power outage that effected the part of our campground where you were staying was due to an area-wide outage that impacted all of our neighbors and other nearby businesses. After we notified the utility company at 2am, they had us back up and running by late morning. While this incident was outside our control, the free coffee, hot chocolate or tea was given to guests who were inconvenienced.

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!
