We want our campers to enjoy a stress free, family fun atmosphere to create those lasting memories.
"We knew we wanted a family business where everyone including the kids could participate and use their God given gifts and talents," said Libby. "KOA was a perfect fit because of our love for camping and the opportunity to spend family time together."
Their philosophy on family is what makes the campground so inviting. "We have always felt that spending time together as a family is important," said Libby. "We want our campers to enjoy a stress free, family fun atmosphere to create those lasting memories."
One activity that families can enjoy on the campground is picking blueberries that are ready to be picked from July to early September. "We have over 4 acres of u-pick blueberries on the campground," said Tom. "South Haven area is famous for its quality of blueberries and has come to be known as the Blueberry Capitol."
Before entering the camping industry, Tom was an engineer and Libby was a very busy stay at home mom and physical therapist.
In their spare time, Libby loves to garden, while Tom enjoys hunting. Tom is in the state record book for his 6 point deer that is showcased in the campground lodge, along with his elk and his brother's state record 33 point non-typical deer. As you walk the campground you will see many of Libby's landscaping projects, as she loves flowers.
UPDATE: 11 years have past since we opened the "doors" on the Covert/South Haven KOA and many of you have seen our 4 kids grow up right before your eyes. Well we can tell you it has been a busy last couple of years. All 4 children were married between Aug. 2015 and June 2016. So we are now the proud parents of 4 additional children. Wondering if it might be a Guinness record for most sibling weddings in a 10 month period of time. And now most recently we are expecting our first two grandchildren!! Tommy & Seralyn are due with a girl in Jan. 2018 and Katie and Trevor are due with a boy in April 2018. So hopefully we will have some exciting pictures of the next generation in yellow.
