Covert / South Haven KOA Holiday is also near Silver Beach County Park, named one of the top 10 beaches in the United States. 

Staying near Lake Michigan beaches is ideal whether you are looking for a romantic getaway for couples, a fun trip with friends or an exciting family camping experience. Relax with beautiful views overlooking orchards and vineyards in what is referred to as the Napa Valley of the Midwest. Taste old-fashioned goodness with homemade fresh pies made from Southwest Michigan fruit farms and farmer's markets, offering pick-your-own seasonal peaches, apples, raspberries and more. If you love blueberries, you will not want to miss the National Blueberry Festival in South Haven with blueberry pancake breakfasts and pie-eating contests. You can even pick blueberries right from our campground!
