We spent one night there on the way home. It's located immediately off the interstate...very convenient. While our stay here was short, I'm always impressed by the types of people who stay here for the season or who work for contractors and live in their units for the duration. Example, there was an RV handyman there who could have saved me a couple hundred dollars if my problems still existed when we got there. And most are very decent people. While this campground was a "premier" one, it was very folksy...and that's what we enjoy about RVing!

First, the owner is a nice man and very helpful, BUT, the RV park itself is a sty...litter and garbage everywhere. Never been to a park this bad. Our site had the water and sewer on one side of the coach and the electric on the other side. No breaker on the box. Had to run the power cord under the coach...and I'm not as young as I used to be. We have a large motor home with a washer/dryer and 3 a/c units. No problem with power. Sewer backed up when I started dumping grey water. The owner was siting someone else nearby and said he would get the plumber in. He said the only problem was too many sites dumping at the same time. It backed up again the next time I used it. The ONE bathroom available has a toilet, sink and one shower stall and I'd only use it if desperate. Fortunately, most people staying there have their own bathrooms. The laundry room is a mess and contains rusty old equipment. Don't even know if it works. Garbage all around. There's a fence around the place and a secured vehicle and pedestrian gate. That's good, because the neighborhood is really bad. One of the contractors staying there told us his boss won't let him work before 7 or after 4 during the week and never on weekends because of the crime. He said you go the wrong way down a street and you could be in trouble. There's a bar down the street that is jumping all night and cars and motorcycles speeding and racing along the street...all night long. The owner also operates a restaurant just outside the perimeter of the campground. It is in great condition and the food is excellent. But, it too has a security door. Why did we stay here...a week? It's conveniently located to I-10 and our friend back home's Dad lives near the city and gave us a grand tour. The best way to deal with crime is to avoid it, and that's what we did. Again the owner is a very nice man, but he apparently operates a number of businesses and owns rental property, so this park is probably an after thought.

The other reviews are more than adequate. But, we have 3 large dogs and we didn't think there was adequate space for dog walking. Fortunately, there is an absolutely FANTASTIC dog park directly behind the Post Office in nearby Farley. Best we've ever seen.

Date of Stay:

It is an excellent RV park with plenty of room..to walk around, walk the dogs...and visit. There's large dog park as well.

It's an unusual setup for an RV park. While there's spacing between sites, there's little room for anything else . There's a double row of RVs on the upper level, another below the cliff and others off the main road. There's a couple who wash and wax RVs for $10 a foot, $15 with Teflon. They spent 10 hours on our 42 ft Winnebago, including the roof and it never looked better. Every time we head South, we'll stop here for them to do it again.

The park is a bit dated, but overall a decent place to stay and the price is right. Others must think so as well because it books up fast. This is the first park we stayed at where the electric hookup didn't have a breaker...a bit worrisome. We bring our 3 Newfoundlands with us and could have used a little more green space for them. There's an RV dealer right next door that's good for supplies and repairs.

Date of Stay:

As is typical of many RV parks it's close to the interstate and railroad. Otherwise this is a great place to stay. When we head out on a trip, we stop here for 2 nights to "shake down" the motor home. It's open year round.

Date of Stay:

Got here just before end of season. Family run and run well. It's a smaller Park, but we'll maintained.

Date of Stay:

Most sites only had electric and water. Passbook America is only good M to F. I'm certain the nearness to Green Bay accounts for the daily rate. Dust and pig manure prevalent. Turns to mud when it rains. The only grass I saw was on and around sites, so your dogs are pooping on someone else's site.

Date of Stay:

Getting to the parks location initially concerned us, but once inside, wow! A beautiful park, right on the Lake...and close to town.

Date of Stay:

Everyone has pretty much stated all the facts. The biggest issue is lack of sewer hookup. We were only here for 3 nights, so not much of a problem. Otherwise, you have to use a "honey wagon" or call an off site vendor. The canal and ships are the real draw.

Date of Stay:

Monamonaco said it best. It appears that only the camp host, who was excellent, knew where the 30 & 50 amp sites were. We had to move once and it rained the entire 2 days we were there. It'a very nice park. I think it's primary function is to accommodate ATV enthusiasts. There were some beauties here.

Date of Stay:

They charge an extra $5 a day for electricity when it's hot. They only accept cash or checks. Many of the sites are seasonal or for full time residents. There were only 3 pull-through sites with full hookups and these were more than adequate. They have a bar/lounge on the grounds that draws local residents as well as guests. You have to have a reason for coming to Coloma, or just passing through. The business sector is slowly disappearing. There are small nearby lakes for recreation. The new owners have been there for a couple of years now and are slowly making improvements.

This is a basic park for a KOA, but after spending 2 nights we found it more than adequate. They were working on improvements our entire stay, including adding 8 new sites. The picnic tables and fish cleaning table need refinishing and the grass needed to be mowed more often. There are a limited number of sites with 50 amp service. Water pressure is 85#s, so I put on a pressure regulator. Nonetheless, we had the best pressure ever for a shower.

When we first drove into the park, I asked the wife what were we going to pay! Not much actually for a premier park. Everything said is true. The owner spent $1,000,000 on concrete...and it's everywhere. Almost too much actually, but there's plenty of room to walk the dogs and a dog park. Everything about this facility is first class. WiFi was down due to a severe lightning strike, but they were working on it as we left.
