I found out about this campground in the KOA Directory, and I cabin camped there in July 2007.

Describe your camping trip:

Facilites are easily accessible and clean. The campground is expansive, but it is easy to walk from one end to the other. Security is maintained well and campers' issues are addressed quickly. The cabins and tent sites are situated in a beautiful copse of trees, and we were told by the owners of plans to add additional trees to the RV sites. A great campground and a pleasant trip.
Pros: The campground is well laid out, facilities are easily accessed from all areas, the road system is easy to navigate, the camp store and main building is beautiful, and the camp itself is clean and fresh. Service is excellent.

Cons: Satellite bathroom needs to be watched and cleaned more often, and I can see a need to expand it if the park becomes more successful (read: crowded) a couple years down the road.
Nearby attractions: South Haven, Watervliet and St. Joesph are a stone's throw away and Douglas/Saugatuck, Holland, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids are an easy drive (with Grand Rapids being the farthest at about an hour's distance).

Further comments:

An excellent new campground. There will be likely a few issues that need to be addressed as business expands (especially the satellite bathroom), but based on the planning that obviously went into this campground as well as meeting the owners face-to-face on our trip (and the speed at which they operate) we are confident this will be a crown jewel both among KOA's and southern Michigan campgrounds.

The South Haven KOA was clean, friendly, and large. The best part was the blueberry patches. I have 3 children who are 5,3 and 1. The only facilities they could use were the ""jumping pillow"" and the ""ball games."" The site was attentive, however you WILL PAY for any extras. Most KOA sites include the Bounce Pillow in their fee, NOT South Haven. They charge $15 per stay which astronomical for families of 3 children.. Needless to say, we purchased the pass however we were questioned and required to make the 3 and 1 year old wear their bracelets. Frankly, it seemed really rude to require a 3 and 1 to keep their bracelets on. Oh well! Not a lot to do..recommend the Muskegon site over South Haven
