As always, a wonderful visit. They are working very hard to keep everyone safe from Covid-19. It's really wonderful to see so many first time and full time RVers.

This is one of the nicest KOAs we have stayed. Cool, quiet, beautiful grounds and nice hosts.

As usual the folks that work there are super nice and the campground is very clean, once the old normal is the new normal campground will be firing on all cylinders. Great experience

Passing through, so only stayed two nights. Really only had one day to be at the park but it was absolutely beautiful. Friendly staff, clean, easy to navigate. Totally wonderful in every way.

There were several male workers helping check people in and out but no attention to facilities that were out of date or worn down. I felt bad that the extra cleaning seemed to be on two female workers, especially with the increased cleaning needs due to COVID. The bathrooms were clean, but the showers did not smell clean. If there was a better division of work, these areas could be improved.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. We have a local cleaning service coming in, helping us with all the extra COVID requirements, disinfecting and cleaning our facilities on a regular basis.

Rented a Deluxe Cabin. Campground was very well maintained. Pool was awesome. Cabin was cute but the beds were a queen/full and a twin bunk bed. Not a full and a twin bunk. Not a problem for us but good to note. Cabin area is really nice. Outside furniture was a huge plus! Would have loved longer nature trail and maybe a hiking trail but over all very nice.

Great stay, wish the fear of the virus would have allowed better resources to be available. Would be nice to purchase a koa mask for this site like patches in days of old. Camp and owners where great orherwise.

There was only one uni-sex restroom open between 8PM & 8 AM with no shower. Then the person designated to open in the morning was a bit late for work & somewhat rude. They appear to be very concerned with COVID, to the point of being unaccommodating to campers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your thoughts. We are sorry you didn't like what we are doing to prevent the virus from spreading. But we will continue to do it because of all the other campers.

My only disappointment with our stay would be paying a regular rate and not being able to enjoy many of the amenities. The staff was very friendly and the grounds very well kept.

We were only there for one night and left early in the morning so we did not get to use any of the amenities. If we are ever out that way again we will be sure to stay there again.

Very nice folks, property is well maintained and very clean. My major gripe is that the spaces are tight with too many trees which make getting in and out a challenge. Too many pine trees will drop lots of sap on your rig...

Thank you. We love our trees and we are very proud of them.

Tucked away in a nicely wooded and quiet area. You would never know you are minutes from Notre Dame, Mishawaka and the Michigan border. Lots of things to do on the property or within a short drive. Clean and spacious grounds for our RV. The cabins are cute and the staff are super friendly! We will be back!

We discovered our Travel Trailer needed repair when we arrived at the KOA. Thomas was kind and friendly and checked on us frequently to make sure we got the repair we needed. Campground is also doing really well in taking measures against the coronavirus. Checked in without needing to go in the office which was great.

Had a very nice relaxing stay! Just wish the amenities were open! If the state parks are up and running full speed can’t understand why the KOA’s can’t be! Would have really enjoyed sitting by the pool and browsing the camp store! 2 of my favorite things to do while camping! Staff was very friendly and accommodating!

My family had a great time at this KOA. Our weekend there was a beautiful and relaxing respite from all the COVID chaos. A quiet park hidden amongst the tall pine trees that offers all the modern conveniences. Great restaurants and shopping are nearby too. We had friendly neighbors, and were able to enjoy a fire and eat s’mores. What more could we ask for?

Planned a visit to Notre Dame, to see the campus & visit a few other sites nearby. And parked at this K.O.A. The place was super clean, very well run, the folks who owned it were on site and very,very friendly & helpful! Just a few minutes from the college, Easy check in , excellent sites among tall pines ( beautiful ) good power,water, & internet if you need it. Some parts closed due to the Covid 19 , but the pool look great! Would definitely go back again and stay even longer!

KOA cabins are rustic single detached cabins that require that you bring your own bedding. I came prepared, as we frequently use their accomodations in our travels through the USA. My wife booked it on the phone from home, since this was a solo trip. I arrived at 11:00 pm, well past their closing time, but the key and info was waiting for me. After having traveled almost 600 miles, needless to say, I was quite tired. The wifi was satisfactory. I made my bed, and had a nice quiet, restful sleep. I got up at 7:30am. I took a shower in nice clean bathrooms, then packed up and headed on my way before the check out time of 11:00 am. You can expect the usual clean friendly accomodation that seems to be synonymous at KOA campgrounds across North America.. Remember to BRING YOUR OWN BEDDING

This was a stop over on our way to Michigan. When we arrived they had a tent sight reserved for us. We have a 20' Airstream and had requested full hookups. Thankfully they had a site available and were apologetic. After setting up we walked around and met the cutest donkey named Jenny. There was no pool. Ordered pizza they make in the office for supper that was pretty good. Wi Fi and cable decent. One downside is that there is a train track very close by that woke us up before 6am. But all in all a good place to stay.
