Wonderful campground!! Staff are so very nice and helpful to the campers. Appreciate delivery of ice & wood to our sites. The pizza was a nice surprise. It was great to order pizza and have it delivered to our site while setting up our camper.

The campground is great, close to both South Haven and St. Joseph. Good shade and facilities. We were tent camping, and it was quite hot, (steamy), and I know you can't control that! But a word to the wise, if it's hot and humid, take an air conditioned cabin! Workers are also repaving/repairing Highway196, (July 19, 2019), heavy road noise all night, (trucks and cars on rumble strips.)

We are glad you enjoyed our great location to South Haven and St. Joseph. While we will never have any more control over the weather than you do at your home, we are doing are part to help with the road noise. By paying our taxes, the highway work will soon be done and then we'll no longer hear noise due to construction. :-)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are humbled to be viewed as your favorite KOA, and pleased to know you recommend us to others.

Staff was all very friendly. Had 2 spots reserved next to each other and they called morning of and said we couldn't have those anymore and would be across the road from each other. Map is not accurate what numbers are across from each other staff should know that and not have to find out after check in. We were able to move one spot down once we found this out since we arrived early afternoon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for being with us. The change that was made to your site assignments occurred due to the saturated ground. Your original sites were moved to dryer sites and were still the same "type" you reserved, and we worked to still make sure you were near your friends. Although we try to accommodate requests, at times there are other factors we need to take into consideration.

The staff and owners were fabulous! It was some Of the cleaned restrooms/showers we have ever used camping. It was truly a stress free stay! Thank you so much!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was our pleasure! So glad you had an enjoyable, stress free stay!

Mark and his wife Karla made us feel at home, they even called us at 8:00 pm to tell us they had a site for us after we got a refund due to the rain flooding our original site. PLEASE pass on our thanks to them they are truly an asset to your company and deserve to be recognized for their OUTSTANDING customer service . We will be recommending them to everyone we know.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We were so glad we could accommodate you with an alternative site that was dry and enjoyable. We were also blessed with wonderful weather over the Memorial Day weekend, which was in contrast to what was in the forcast. Sometimes it's nice when someone is wrong. :-)

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!

The campground is very nice and has a lot of activities for all ages. The staff is helpful and friendly and just an overall good experience. We are making this a yearly trip for us.

Very impressed of the appearance of the camp site. New picnic table and the outdoor table and chairs that I noticed at some of the RV sites. Also the wood swings at some location. Front office landscape is beautiful compared to the others and the pool and fence is really nice. Mostly I have never been to a rest room and shower facility hotel style compared to others. The owner did a remarkable job

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a great team of staff and volunteers who have joined us in putting a lot of sweat equity into our campground for the enjoyment of all our guests. We are glad you enjoyed the result of our efforts!
Aug 20, 2018
So much fun for people of all ages. Our group was ages 6 to 70, and we all enjoyed ourselves so much! St. Joseph and silver beach were beautiful!
Aug 20, 2018
Great tent camping location. Lots of activities and friendly staff.
Aug 20, 2018
99% of it was really great. They had great customer service and kept the place very clean as best they could with many people in the campground. We did find it a little out of place that the ceramic tile on the floor in the back bathrooms was all cracked up and seemed to move a little. We would for sure come here again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for being with us! Replacing the tiles in the Family bathrooms are indeed on our "to-do" list as we plan to tackle some repair projects yet this year.
Aug 20, 2018
Overall OK. But there is alot to do about baths and showers and privacy in this packed campground. Lots of fun for kids and good swimming pool. Last year we stayed in Wisconsin dells and they have really nice modern looking shower bulging that's what I was expecting in Coloma.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As new owners, we have been excited to make many upgrades to our older park over the past two years. Sadly, we cannot do everything at once. However, you'll be pleased to know that we are currently in the process of lining up contractors to bring our main restrooms into the 21st Century during this next off season. We hope you'll plan to come back and see us again!
Aug 14, 2018
Very friendly and clean campground . The staff was very nice and helpful. They looked as if they were happy to have us there . Our family enjoyed the stay and would return again . The only thing I would like to see next time would be more bathrooms. �

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. All of the amenities were great although the hot tub was out of order. We definitely had a great stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you had a great stay and feel badly that the hot tub was out of service due to unscheduled maintenance as the result of damage caused by another guest. We are working to get it back up and running ASAP before the end of the season.
Aug 06, 2018
Nice facilities. We stayed in a primitive campsite and it was nice and quiet. The kids loved the pool on a hot day. Not as nice bathrooms as other KOA we have stayed at. Also it was very crowded on a summer Saturday night. If in St. Joseph area we would stay again.
Aug 06, 2018
We stayed in site 117, rustic tent no hookups and were very pleased. The kiddos loved the jumping pillow and pool the most! The store items were reasonably priced and the staff made our stay very welcoming!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your time with us. As avid campers ourselves, we always disliked it when we believed we were being "ripped off" by higher-than-usual costs at a campground simply because we were a captive audience. Therefore, we are pleased to carry only high-quality products in our General Store and Cafe, and to provide our guests with reasonable prices.
Aug 06, 2018
We had a wonderful stay. This was our first time camping with our kids (3 and 6) and they loved it! We stayed in a tent and loved that the area was surrounded by large trees. The site was very clean and I felt very safe letting the kids roam a bit with us just nearby watching. The barrel train ride and movie under the stars were both a hit!! We are very excited to plan a trip back next summer.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As a family-friendly campground, we are pleased to hear that our setting and activities helped you create great family memories. We are also pleased to know you're planning to come back and see us again next year. Better yet, why wait? We've got some fun fall camping available yet this year through October 14th, when we'll celebrate our Halloween Harvest and Second Annual Chili Cook-Off!
Aug 04, 2018
First time camping as a family and we had a blast. The kids really enjoyed all the activities available.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We love it when we can help guests who are new to camping have a great time. You are well on your way to being a seasoned camper, and we hope to see you again!

Our second time visiting and we had a blast again. But we missed the Tuesday night train rides! We also want to thank your staff for helping jump our car when the battery was dead the morning we were to leave.

The sites are not clearly marked and we were given site 101 which was very small. Our fire pit was basically on the outside of our property line. The sites need to be remarked and made to be similar in size.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry that our site boundaries on your rustic tent site was confusing to you, and can appreciate that during our peak season how that did not help your weekend come off to a great start. We hear you, and are in the process of adding split-rail fencing to serval sites that will help provide improved understanding.

Thanks for a wonderful stay. Mark and his staff went out of their way to accommodate our cross country team and make us feel welcome and special! Our kids will remember the trip long after they remember the workouts!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was a pleasure to have your cross country team stay with us. It is incredibly rewarding to know that we are able to help them build a common bond between one another, and enjoy a bit of the outdoors. Hope you have a great season!

It was nice big showers but small toilet stalls. Beautiful shady spot.

I loved your site and would most likely return if given the opportunity. I would, however, strongly recommend that you reduce the poison ivy growth. The tent sites are lovely, but most people would not recognize the elephant-ear sized leaves hanging from the trees as poison ivy. I stayed at site #97 and it is EVERYWHERE. Your tent sites can be natural and wooded and green without the health risks.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you had a nice time, and are excited we may have an opportunity to welcome you back in the future. While we work hard to maintain our grounds, including spraying against poison ivy, such realities are a constant reminder that we are in a wooded environment, as opposed to a field or parking lot. We will take steps to work to reduce it during the remainder of the camping season.

We had a great time. Even with the weather not being so great it we had a good time in St. Joseph walking around and exploring the town. The camp ground was nice. It was very busy but that is to be expected with summer. We were lucky enough to only have neighbors to one side of us so that helped keep noise levels down. It would have been a bit close having a tent to the other side of us as well.

Nice facilities. Very large wasp nest in the rafters of the women’s restroom that leads to the pool. Positioned right above the light

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate you letting us know about the wasp nest, but wish you had you let us know when you noticed it. It was not immediately evident, as it was hidden behind the light. However, you'll be pleased to know that as soon as we read your online review, we took care of the problem and the nest has now been removed.

Tent site was just too close to others. Otherwise we really like your campground!

New updates were very nice. Bathrooms could be a bit cleaner, or more often.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed our updates. Please know we are committed to the cleanliness of our facilities, and have them cleaned at least three times daily during our peak season. Weather, heavy use, and the sand that gets carried in from the bottom of people's footwear also plays a factor. Regardless, we work very hard to stay on top of it.

VERY nice campground! Hosts / employees are so friendly and helpful, they helped make our stay very enjoyable. Great variety of campsites, easy to get in & out of. Looking forward to going back again (and again)!

Loved this campground. Our site was great. Everyone who worked there was wonderful. The bathrooms were very clean. The WiFi worked well. Only issue was some very noisy neighbors at 3 am, which mgmt took care of promptly. My only wish is that the hot tub would've been open, but it really made no difference.
