If you like the woods and off the beaten path, this place is for you. Still under construction, will be a nice campground once complete.

Left day early. Didn’t know place was under construction. They need to redo the description of there glamping tent they have bunk bed cots in it and it’s really a little kids cot so we had to have someone sleep on the floor.

We would have been happy to exchange this out for you. We have 2 sizes for the Bunk Cots. Adult/Children. Maybe you could come back and try a Deluxe Cabin next time!! Thank you for the Feed Back

This was my families first time camping (well our boys my husband and I have camped prior). We enjoyed our stay and had the most secluded campsite. We were a little disappointed that there weren’t any group activities but I understood because there were not a lot of campers. All and all one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at.

Hope you can come back when we run more of our activities! Petting Farm - Arts and Crafts - Wagon Rides - Hikes - Bounce Pillow - Holiday Events too!

Joel was a big help with leveling our RV and made us feel welcome. All staff were just great, we stayed 5/25/18 thru the 29th. Only issue we had was on Memorial day there seemed to be no staff around at all. The park was almost empty and wondered what would happen if we had an emergency of some kind. There were some people in what looked to be a home on the property but they made no appearance

We are always here! Just look for the Yellow shirts and a smiling face! Happy to help with any needs you may have.

We have two children and they had the greatest time this past weekend at your camp ground. We have stayed at several Campground and they absolutely loved your koa. Thank you very much for the wonderful time and memory that we won't forget.

Very family friendly, with attentive and cordial staff members. The pool was sparkling clean and delightful, especially on an incredibly hot weekend. The sand dune playground and bouncy house were popular with all the kids, too.

The camp was very nice! Well maintained gounds, clean bathrooms and convenient store. I felt the prices were very high for the ice and could get it for half the price just outside of the camp grounds. Also not a fan of the early check in fee.

Lots of new things to enjoy. Next time come sit pool side or try a New Deluxe Cabin.

Always a good time and very kid friendly. Been up there multiple times and will continue to go back.

This is our second trip to this KOA and the ownership and staff is second to none. They are always willing to make our stay the best. I will be back. Highly recommend!

Everyone at this KOA was so friendly and helpful. We stayed there quite early in the season and they were busy making some major improvements. I can't wait to go back when the pool is open.

Love the deluxe cabin. its our new home away from home!
Oct 19, 2017
It was definitely a horrid rainy weekend, but you don't have any say in that! Staff and owners always friendly. We do invite others and will be back!
Oct 19, 2017
We stayed here twice this season. The last visit was their Halloween event and they did an excellent job. The weather was uncooperative, but the owners and staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone had a great weekend! We will definitely be back!

I reserved a site online. The app loaded my equipment specs and I found a campsite. Then I was contacted by staff who said they were moving me to another site. When I was in the office, I was informed of a rate increase associated with the move. I asked for an adjustment and the staff provided a small discount, but the cost was still higher than my online reservation. I won't return or recommend.

I would give it higher than 10 if it was possible. Beautiful campground. Amazing staff. Cannot wait to go back.

Not quite up to what you would expect from a KOA, poor wifi and no Cable TV. . This was our 3rd KOA experience in the state of Michigan First, while they have Wifi, the service is very poor, not usable from the site, Gaylord and Traverse City are usable from the site. Cable TV would be a plus. The campground was clean though. More what I would expect from a State Park, but KOA prices.

We drove nearly 5 hours to visit this KOA and it was absolutely worth it. My husband, myself and our three children stayed in one of the deluxe cabins and it FAR exceeded any expectations that we had. The campground was full of activities and the staff was friendly and very accommodating. Thank you Joel, Lydia and everyone else that helped make our experience great!!

We had an excellent weekend, beautiful campground! One suggestion: it would be nice to have some sort of table to set items (toiletries, charges/phones) on. We stayed in cabin 4D

Loved the campsite will will return in the future!

My son and I stayed in one of the rustic cabins at the Ludington East KOA recently. We were not at the camp ground/cabin all that much because we were fishing for most of our stay, but we had a positive experience when we were there. Very friendly and helpful staff. My son and I have already talked about coming back to Ludington East next fall.

We love everything about this campground and the owners!

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Nice facility. Our site was perfectly level when we pulled in. Bathrooms were very clean! Nice playground and they offer plenty of family friendly activities, daily. The petting zoo was fun and Walk a Goat Sunday was a hoot!

Very nice campground and would highly recommend it. Very nice employees.
Sep 12, 2017
From the moment the awesome staff welcomed us at check in, until we departed, we felt like family. An amazingly ran, clean and active/family based park that is full of things to do to keep everyone busy. Located in the middle of the national forest, wildlife was abundant, and was only equaled by the serenity of the evening birds singing us to sleep. We will be back, and recommend highly!

It was a new nice frendly KOA. We were so far out, no wifi. Had 3 PBS stations but 2 were the same. The 1 1/2 mike dirt road was muddy after the rain. Had to use 4 wheel drive to get out of the site with the trailer because of the soft sand. Again, the staff were nice and approachable. I would go back if I was just going to the river for canoing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have WiFi! :) You can find it as KOA Guest or KOA Guest 1. Sometimes the distance that it spans can change the signal but there is always WiFi. The closer you get to the camp store the stronger the signal.

It was quiet. A lot of activities for the kids. I don't like the rabbits running around everywhere. There was rabbit feces everywhere and we couldn't let our dogs be out with us since there was feces everywhere in fear that they'd eat it. It took nearly 3 hours for our wood to get delivered to our site. Had to go back to the store to remind them.

Nice campground secluded in the woods of the Manistee National Forest. Facilities were good and activities for the kids plentiful. Very minimal mosquitoes which was nice. Only drawback was the wifi was very spotty but we've come to expect that from just about all campgrounds.
