Nice setting with a beautiful lake and walking path, but it needs to be maintained better! The bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities are so-so: especially the laundry facilities. They were never clean during our 2 month stay and pretty gross to use. The campsites are never cleaned after campers depart. I even spent time picking up litter after a storm: just because I didn't want to look at the mess! There's a restaurant/sports bar on site, but it has a very limited menu. Gravel roads and lots are often muddy after rain. We had a terrible time getting level: more so than anywhere else in 9 years of camping. Staff is pretty much hands off and it's a family run business. The best part about this park if their annual Halloween Party and haunted hayride. Well done and lots of fun. Maybe it's better in the summer, but we needed a short term (2 month) place to stay near Columbus and this was the most convenient spot.

We stayed on a full hook up site in section D and there are 12 available. Everything else is electric only. The park was clean and well kept. The front office gate and camp store were both closed while we were here because of shortened fall hours, although several camper hosts were seen throughout the park. Check the schedule if you think you may need supplies and are not towing a car. We were able to get some local television stations with clear reception. There is an ice cream shop across the street from the park. There are plenty of places to ride your bike within the park, but the lake bike path is about 2 miles from the park and can only be accessed via busy country roads. We would return to this campground!

We were very happy with this campground! The bathrooms were clean, campground hosts were on duty and often visible and it was very quiet at night. There were also rangers passing through on a regular basis. Although we had to "level" at our site, it was clean and had a nice fire ring and plenty of space, no trash from previous guests. There is a laundry facility available and a well stocked camp store with hospitable clerks. Granted, this is not a 5 star resort. We have stayed in several of those which lack charm and don't really give you the true camping experience. Still, we would gladly return. Our son goes to school at Miami U. which is only 15 minutes from the campground so this was convenient. There is a Wal-Mart about 8 miles away. Although we did not take advantage of the lodge pool since it closed on Labor Day, we saw it and noticed it was spotless. The roads are narrow, but not hard to navigate. We camped here in a 39 footer and had no problems. Also, we were able to get several Cincinnati television stations.

This is a great campground. We stayed here four years ago and it was nice then, but several improvements have since been made. Nice, grassy sites and they are level. There is a lake for kids with electric boats that shoot out water, a beautiful putt putt golf course, fishing lake, rental bikes and activities too numerous to mention. Also, a cute cafe with great ice cream and many food selections and snacks. The store is well stocked and the pool is clean and has an adult swim from 9a-10a. People were catching fish in the catch and release pond. The owners are constantly working on the grounds and keep the place clean! The camping cabins are cute, too. We talked to some "seasonal" campers who had nothing but good things to say about the place. There is a large, two area fenced in dog playground that is also well maintained. We will return! The rate reflects our KOA discount, but this is worth the few extra dollars you pay. WiFi is free every 10 hours for one hour usage or $2.50 for a 24 hour period. There is also trash pick up twice daily: a nice touch!

We just camped here for an overnight, so we did not use the pool or laundry, but the store and office area were very clean and the store had a nice selection of items. WI-FI did not work at our site, nor did it work at the office. There is a nice pond and we rented a row boat for five dollars for a two hour period and caught some large mouth bass. Everything was reserved in the full hook up area, so we chose a site next to the lake with water and electric. I was never able to get completely level, but it was all right for one night. There are quite a few "seasonal" residents and a few unsightly campers right at the entrance. The office staff was pleasant.

This is a very nice, clean park. Every person we met was friendly and kind. The front desk workers were helpful too! They do have an "age" limit on Class A coaches. I believe it is a ten year age limit. We arrived to our site and were unable to connect our systems as the sprinkler system was turned on and spraying in the hook up area. There are three different community centers/showers. Nice fitness equipment, a library and several games are available. There is also a large, enclosed "dog park" which is great! There is a two dog "limit" at this resort. WiFi worked well! The only downside, there was no store and no bike paths to ride into town. We did not tow on this trip, so we felt a bit isolated. This is a very adult oriented park. We saw no children throughout our two day stay. The pool was immaculate, although we were unable to use it due to the stormy weather . We have stayed in other RV resorts and I think this one felt more like staying in someones nice "backyard" as opposed to camping, but we did enjoy it.

This was a wonderful park close to downtown Ludington. We rode our bikes to town and found some fun shops, including a vintage book store! Our site was right across from the fenced in dog run area and next to their older bath house which was immaculate. We chose a concrete pad, but all sites have a concrete patio area. The grounds are well maintained, the park is family owned and operated and it is "clean, clean, clean." There are two outdoor pools and one is reserved for adults. It was without a doubt one of the cleanest pools I've seen. We didn't use the indoor pool, but it also looked well kept. Although I don't usually use the laundry facilities at campgrounds, I would have felt comfortable using this one. The camp store is small, but there is a Walgreens right across the road and a Wal-Mart a few miles away. WiFi worked great, but the only negative was the $4.95 per day fee to use it. With so many campgrounds now offering free WiFi, I dislike to be charged for it. There is also a nice pond, but only children under 17 years old are allowed to fish in it. My husband would have liked to throw in a line and was a little disappointed with that policy. All in all, a great place to stay!

Very nice campground and the bathrooms and laundry room are immaculate! There's also a fenced in pet walk area which was well cared for and convenient. Although we didn't use the "catch and release" fishing ponds, they looked inviting. Check in was easy and the staff was pleasant. The camp store was cozy and well stocked. We had no issues at all getting into the park around the 180 degree turn. We will return again for an overnight stay! There were a few different activities around town that we would have visited, but didn't have time for on this particular trip. The glass factory tour and a car museum are both free. In addition, the campground is located just 4 miles from the largest mall in West Virginia.

We used this for an overnight stay and enjoyed the close proximity of John's Place (bar and grill) right next to the park. We were able to watch the NCAA games and enjoy a pizza! John's is a small, clean bar with good finger food and several large screen televisions. The registration desk is located inside the gas station, but the check in process was easy and the staff was welcoming. We were escorted to our site. Also, we appreciated the fenced dog walk area. There was a large laundry room, but I decided not to use it. I'm picky about my laundry facilities! Easy on and off from 77 N. We would use this park again for an overnight stay!

Beautiful park and very quiet. We really enjoyed our stay. All sites are pavement sites, but the beach is a short walk away. We enjoyed the pretty sunsets in the evening! A great restaurant nearby is the Ottawa Beach Inn. There was a lot of road construction in the area and we had to follow a detour to the campground. Some of the roads were fairly narrow. We took our dogs to the local dog park which was only a few miles down the road. Since pets are not allowed on the beach, it was nice to have a place where we could take them for a special treat. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a full hook up site in a shady part of the campground.We were not able to pick up local television stations although the Wi-Fi worked well. The park could use some updating. There is a tennis court, playground and other amenities, but everything seems rundown. Nobody was available at check in when we arrived at 3 PM, but I called the office number and was told to pick out a site and then return to the office later in the day and let them know the one we chose. The staff seemed friendly. The towns of St. Joseph and Coloma are very nice and there is a lot to see in the area. Although this would not be my first choice, I would stay here again for an overnight. Expect a lot of road noise and train traffic throughout the night.

The park is in a pretty area. There are some nice restaurants close by and good fishing on the pier. Registration was a cluster. Be prepared for a long process. We made reservations online, but were only given a "type" of site , not an actual one. Once we arrived, we were told to drive around and then let them know which site number we picked. There was an additional $8 charge for our tow car as we were non-residents. There is a small, sandy area designated as a "dog walk", but pets are not allowed on the beach and there were very few places to walk them except for the pavement. We had a few neighbors across from us staying in tents. That would have been alright, but they placed multiple tents on their site and were not polite campers. Although their behavior was not the fault of the campground, they should have been asked to move to the section exclusively for tent camping.

The campground owners are extremely kind and accommodating. Some of the nicest ones we've met! In fact, they went out of their way to help us. We had major electrical problems with our coach and the owner helped us regain temporary use of our generator. They even provided an ice chest for us to use when our refrigerator failed to operate. The pool was clean and nice and the shower house is older, but clean. There is a camp store, laundry facility and WiFi access. We were in the back part of the campground and had to go to the office for access, but it worked fine there. This park is within easy access to 40-E and very quiet. We would stay here again!

We have been coming to this campground since 2003, but this was probably our last visit. This price reflects our KOA Value discount.While we never mind paying a premium price if we feel it's justified,in this case, it was not. The park was not fully functional, yet we were charged their premium rates. Although it was their first "open" weekend, they were not ready for customers. There was no cable (apparently, they switched companies and it had not been turned on yet). The camp store was full of unopened boxes, picnic tables had not yet been placed at sites,one bath house was not yet open,etc. There are some positives. They have moved their dog run to the rear of the park and although it's not nearly as large as before, it is nice to have a fenced in area, so that is a plus. There's a new putt putt golf course which has an extra fee attached. Maybe the price is reasonable if you have children who can use all the "extras." There are a lot of run down seasonals stored around the perimeter of the park and a run down mobile home park is visible on one side. The other plus is the restaurant next door, called Pizza Cottage. It is, without a doubt, the best pizza around! We had a pull through site and didn't want to detach our tow car, but couldn't hook up to our sewer without first detaching the car. All sites are gravel and fairly level. Having stayed at several other KOA's in Ohio as well as throughout the Southeast, this one seems quite overpriced for what you get. Wi-Fi is a plus as it works well, but it requires a code from the camp office so be sure and ask for it when you register.

This campground is a nice stop between the Carolinas and Ohio. A previous post mentions taking exit 16. However, don't do that because a bridge is out. You need to take exit 119,then 21 south. It is about 5.5 miles. The roads are narrow and winding so it would be best to drive in during daylight. The campground is immaculate. As others have mentioned, there is a large area of permanent campers, but the area is well kept and the full site hook ups and overnight area is very nice. The restrooms were very clean, too. I would rate it higher if the access was easier. Also, the camp store had very limited supplies. Easy check in by a very kind lady who lives right across from the office. We would stay here again.
