We rent cabins for the kids and the grandkids (and one granddog). This is a great place for a comfortable, overnight camping trip. We have visited this place many times in recent years and have always been happy. This is a campground and not a hotel!

We're thrilled to hear that your family has had such wonderful experiences in our cabins and at our campground. It is truly an honor to have you as guests for several years now. We hope to see the whole family, grand-puppy too, again soon. Thank for camping with us! More

Spent two nights here last week and were impressed with this campground. Clean, well staffed, updated, & top notch amenities. Extremely friendly staff that went way beyond to make us feel welcome. Sites a little narrow but well maintained. I will return to this campground next time we are in northern Michigan.

We had 2 senior couples and 3 dogs staying in a 32 foot Rv pulling a jeep. We travelled from Louisiana to Kentucky, Ohio and then to Michigan. All of us enjoyed this park. It was clean, quiet and our spot spacious. Yes, there was someone rather close on one side but they were very nice. We spent one day... More

I have stayed in many KOA's and this is easily in my top three. Long pull through with paved pad, picnic table on paved pad, and real grass😀 The hot tub is clean and a perfect 102. Pool was clean with plenty of lounge chairs. The grounds and flowers were immaculate. Everywhere I looked I saw staff watering, weeding, trimming... More

Super clean, staff was extremely accommodating. They wanted us to have fun. Didn't give 5 stars because the layout for the tent sites seemed like they were the leftover spots in the park. This is a RV park and a very nice one at that.

Over all this is a very pleasant campground located near Petoskey. It's a good base for lovely drives up and down the Lake Michigan area. There's plenty of trees at this KOA. It's clean. We had a fire pit and a grill. Our cabin was a "deluxe". It had a front bedroom with a dresser and a queen size bed.... More

We stayed for 6 nights in a pull through full hook up site. I have to say we expected a little more for a pull thru lot. The site was very unlevel requiring us to use 7-8 blocks on one side to even out our travel trailer. Unfortunately it rained a couple of times and our lot flooded heavily on... More

We have stayed at many KOAs but this one is a little crazy. Nice staff but the campers in our area were extremely rude (P.S. we're from NY) and their kids were even worse. KOA staff is willing to please but should enforce quiet times more. Site was good and level. EXPENSIVE. Good WiFi internet.
