Coloma / St. Joseph KOA Reviews

Making Family Memories, One Camping Night at a Time

Jul 18, 2019
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)

This was one of the cleanest, most well-kept KOA's we have stayed in. I only wish we could have stayed longer:)

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.

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.

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.

Pleasant, friendly, family oriented campground. Lots of fun for kids. Mattresses in our cabin were very uncomfortable. Other than that we had a good time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad you enjoyed your time with us. In order to improve our guest experience in the cabins we invested in all new mattresses at the beginning of this year. However, we are sorry you found it to be uncomfortable.

Cabin was clean, nice lot and fire pit. The floor of the cabin did lean towards the front porch. Good distance from the bathrooms for a campground.

An overnight to have a campfire with our grandaughter. She loved the barrel ride!

Our cabin was clean and everything was in working order. The grounds are really nice and clean. Friendly staff. We hope to visit again next year!

We had a great time! There was tons for the kids to do. They loved the jump pillow. The staff was great; always around when you needed them for firewood, trash pickup, or simple questions. We stayed in a Cozy Cabin that was perfect. It was very clean and had a heater which we needed at night. All around, a perfect retreat from the city.

The staff was sooooo friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the area and about kid friendly activities. The campground was clean and well taken care of.

Great campground. Only wish the hot tub was open after labor day.

Fabulous staff!

Our staff are amazing, and we're pleased to know that you experienced the genuine commitment they have to serve our guests.

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.

Cabin was very dusty

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that it appears the cabin was a little dusty. Our housekeeping staff work very diligently to clean our cabins to meet our quality standards. As we always tell guests, if there is ever anything that does not meet your expectations, we invite you to let us know while you are here so we can work to address it immediately.

The bathrooms really need remodeling. Especially the ones in the back. The tile floor in two of the units is cracking from underneath, it seems there may be moisture underneath the floor structure. Does not seem to be safe to walk on. There is very little ventilation in those bathrooms and it is always moist and smelly. Extremely long waiting times for those bathrooms, because of the combo units

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You'll be pleased to know we are already working on repairing the tile in our family restrooms. With respect to the waiting, we encourage guests to use the main restrooms when that occurs. While wait times due to those who are showering can be frustrating, we believe the convenience family-style restrooms provide are a greater benefit to more of our guests.

The staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay there. We had a very relaxing time at the campground and visiting the sights in the area. It was very nice to be able to order pizza at the concession stand and then have it delivered to our site when it was ready.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

From our well-maintained grounds, amenities, area attractions, and our guest service, our goal is to provide you and your family with an exceptional camping experience.

One of my favorite camps for sure!!! Unfortunately I didn't give 5* is because of 2 issues: main bathrooms by the office are begging for renovation and cabins 1-5 stink. I did hear that everything will be ugraded thou, can't wait until next year to check it out!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In the spirit of "we can't do everything all at once," you have identified two renovation projects that are already on our list and have wheels in motion. We look forward to earning your 5-star rating next year!

4 stars only because the bathhouses were disappointing, nothing some shower shoes and antibacterial soap can't take on. Quite, friendly and peaceful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for staying with us. The cleanliness of our facilities is a top priority, even during the peak, summer season when our restrooms incur a high volume of use. We are sorry they did not meet your expectations, but your feedback is important as it encourages us to be as diligent as possible.
Aug 28, 2018
The cabins are clean and cozy, we have enjoyed each stay and look forward to visiting again in the future.

This is our 5th year staying here and we have always had a great time. In particular we love the continuing updates and improvements that the new owners have completed. My daughter loves the jumping pillow, pool, train ride and this year was very excited about Movie Night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are honored by your repeat business and are committed to making your time with us an enjoyable one through our recent and ongoing improvements! Our outdoor family movie night has been a BIG hit every Saturday during the summer!

Great time with the family! Our cabin was nice. There was lot’s to do. The pizza is great. Give it a try!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for letting us know that you enjoyed the food from our Cafe'. The Hunt Brother's pizza is extremely popular with our guests, along with the wings, wing bites, Bosco sticks, and other great sides! Our guests simply cannot beat the convenience or quality, and best of all.... we'll even deliver it right to your site!
Aug 20, 2018
We had a very nice time during our 3 night stay. Very clean and friendly staff, but needs updating as we have stayed at other KOA's and they were more modern.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You'll be pleased to know that as we jump with great enthusiasm into our third year of ownership of our older park, we are continuing our very intentional efforts of bringing every aspect of the park up more up to date. We hope you'll come back and visit us again, so you can join the throngs of other guests who have enjoyed all the positive changes that have been made.

Not a bad place. Bathrooms are fine. Showers are better at the main building. Staff is friendly but there are a lot of rules which got to be annoying after awhile. Campsites are well shaded. Plenty of stuff for younger kids to do. Pizza they make on-site is good.
