I just wanted to let people know this is not a pet friendly campground if you are there just for the weekend. If you are there for the whole summer they allow pets. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

I was a seasonal here so the $25 reflected my 100 days at site. About 60% of sites are seasonal. Park is well taken care of. Staff is friendly. This is pretty much an older cliental with no activities for kids. The park is pretty quiet during the week. Internet was good but a little slow. No cable for TV. About 2 miles from Lake access. They close mid October. Restaurant was pretty nice. You could sit outside on porch during nice mornings. Relaxing stay. Would definitely come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We did not stay here, but previewed it prior to a 2 week stay in the South Haven area. It was a very well kept park, but very few spaces were open and I would NOT want to try and back anything larger than 35' or so into most of the spots. There were many trees that would be a problem with manuvering. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice shady park with level back-in sites. The bathhouse and laundry are great. No pets were allowed when we were here. The gentleman showed us a site and we requested the one next to it. There was no problem and he helped us back right in. The 30/50 amp is still a problem. If 50 is taken, you're stuck with 30 but we haven't had any problem with the A/C, appliances running on 30 so far and it is in the 80s. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I would like to differ with the preceding rating of Cousins' campground. We have stayed at this campground many times and have had a wonderful visit. The prior commentary had many inaccuracies, first of all there isn't a pool, the campground is located within a mile of Lake Michigan. The owners are very personable. The shower building is immaculate, which it seems that the previous campers failed to look at. As a dog owner,
my pet is more than welcome, but that would be due to the fact that we take care of our dog and clean up after it. It sounds to me that this camper had an attitude problem and didn't review this campground accurately. We camped here in a camper.

What a miserable place! The owners should find another line of business, not a bit friendly. The sites are much too close. Difficult to get in and out and not much room to park your tow vehicle. There are only 4 pull-through sites. They claim to have 30 and 50 amp hook-ups at each site, but fail to mention one electrical post must be shared by 2 sites. If you require a 30 amp, but are the 2nd coach there needing 30 amp, be prepared to get a lengthy speech from the owner about how it cost him $80 a piece to install electrical posts at each site and, "do I know how much it would cost to provide everyone with 2-30's & 2-50's?" Then walk back to the office to obtain an adapter from his charming wife to the tune of an $18 deposit. She scowls each time you come into the office and finds it too difficult to raise her hand to so much as wave or acknowledge you anyway. Pets are allowed, but you'll learn in short order they are not welcome. Must have a million signs placed around the park saying, "Keep Dogs Away." We camped here in a camper.
South Haven is on the shore of Lake Michigan. If you like to bicycle, this park is right off the Kal-Haven Rail-Trail and you can easily bike into town. You can also launch a kayak into the Black River from here. Small park but reasonably priced for full-hook-up ($200/week). Sites are adequate and several pull-through sites are available at no extra charge. A no-frills Ma & Pa park. Verizon MiFi and voice service were good. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Closest park to town, the Kal-Haven trail is accessible from the rear of the park. We were able to walk to downtown from our campsite. They could do better at cleaning the fire pits from the previous guests but the park is fairly clean overall. Also pretty quiet here. We had no issues parking our 37' motorhome here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is really a mobile home park with 7 RV sites in own area. Nice back-in concrete pads. Quiet Park. It is not a resort but is a nice place to stay if you have things to do in area. Rate reflects monthly rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I stayed here six weeks while working at Palisades Nuclear Station. This is a basic RV Park with few amenities. However, the owners are very pleasant and accommodating. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean, well maintained campground. Sites are level with gravel/dirt surface. Some grass. I can not give this campground more than a 3 rating because the roads are dirt and every time a car goes by there is a cloud of dust. The campground is in full sun with no trees. Camp sites are positioned east and west, so you have hot sun in the morning and hot sun in the evening. Campground is in a rural setting about 5 miles outside of South Haven. Will not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at this campground first several years ago when it first opened. They are now expanding but we question the direction of the expansion. The new sites are only electric and water, not full hook-ups, and they are very close together. We were unable to get one of the few full hook-up sites for this stay. We were in the older section that has larger sites and are grassy. There is no shade in this campground and no indication that they plan for future shade (i.e. few trees planted). If you like campground sponsored activities, we don't participate in those, they do have a lot of them on a weekend. We had a large multifamily group camped near us which by nature creates a lot of noise. We questioned that they enforce their number-of-persons-per-site rule. The bathrooms, although newer, were not always kept clean during the time we were there. Wi-fi was minimally adequate. We may stay here again but only if we can get a full hook-up site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is spending a lot of money to upgrade the park. They are in the middle of opening a new section. All access roads and sites are gravel and dusty but level. We stayed in the new section and there are zero trees and no sewer. I don't know about you but when I pay $27 for an overnight spot I expect full hookups. The roads are narrow and some of the turns are tight. If the park were to be full, or close to it, it would be very tight. The grass areas in the new section need a lot of growth before they will be usable for much. The park has lots of games setup for families. (Carpet ball, corn hole, disk golf, etc.) They have a pool that is under construction and looks like it will be nice when complete. There is cable in the new section but not in the old. I guess that makes up for not having sewer in the new section. This park is 4 miles off of the highway and is fine for an overnight stop. There's not much that would make me want to come back or stay longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a newer park, and they are still in the process of expanding. While we were there they began construction on the pool. Everything is pristine. Clean restrooms and showers, nice store, cabins and tons of fun things for the kids. I can't wait to return another year to see their progress. In the meanwhile, expect a little construction noise. There is no off season in Michigan to do the work. It's either summer or snow. The trees will grow, and this will be one beautiful family spot. We paid $51 for a similar park last week, so it appears South Haven has adjusted their price to compensate. Owners and staff were very nice and helpful. Storm came up just as we were getting ready to leave. They told us not to worry about the checkout time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Had a full hookup pull-through site with easy access for our 31' Airstream. Showers and restrooms were very clean. No problems encountered. Would have been nice to have some shade but not a huge deal. I'm sure we'll camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love this place. Easy in and out for big rigs, lots of room between spaces and the owners go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be. Construction is underway for a huge new pool now too! This is a family friendly place with a bouncing pad for kids, bikes you can rent and a giant covered pavilion for gatherings. There's a large grassy field set up for frisby golf, or just grab a pitching wedge and practice your short game! We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The older section has shade and established grass at your site. The new section is out in the open and the grass is not established. Bring outdoor rugs, Because the dirt tracks into your unit. They are adding lots of things for children to do to include a swimming pool for next year. They have a fenced dog run and a large grassy area where you can walk your dog. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice CG. The sites are spacious, and love how they "hide" the sewer hook ups. Not much to do if you have kids, since there is no pool. only about 4 other RV campers when we were there. I think they have 6 cabins, and 5 were booked. Nicest, cleanest bathrooms we have seen in a long time. We were tempted to use them even though we had full hookup. Wi-Fi is free, but spotty at best. Staff could have been a bit more friendly...nice, but not to talkative. Close to downtown South Haven. Small place, but looks like they have plans to expand...not sure if that will happen. We would camp here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a quiet and peaceful park just a few miles from town. Very friendly family run operation. Newer facilities with well stocked supplies. Super clean bathrooms and showers. Pet friendly with lots of room for exercise. Good Verizon cell and data coverage. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, well maintained with excellent office staff. Restrooms were clean and showers very nice. The location in the country is handy to town with about a 5 minute drive. South Haven is a nice little harbor town on Lake Michigan with plenty of things to do.. The park has an expansion of planned pull throughs shown on their site map. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground cut out of the surrounding corn fields and blueberry patches. The park has planned phase 1 and phase 2 "expansions". Not sure what will happen to the park's ambiance and feeling of spaciousness once that happens. Our fairly level site was on the outer loop overlooking the pretty field where they will build one of the phases. I like it now; not sure if I would like it when it is bigger. Once (or if) they expand, they will need to upgrade the internal dirt roads and improve the drainage (during a heavy rain the road in front of the office has deep wide puddles). The park also needs to greatly improve their Wi-Fi: it barely worked and the office staff wasn't very helpful. The park is also close to the cute town of South Haven and beautiful Lake Michigan beach. Check out Sherman's Dairy Bar/Creamery on the way into town...the ice cream is WONDERFUL! We camped here in a Motorhome.
A spotless campground! Was well maintained. Located in a country setting and quiet. Was a good distance from South Haven, no hassles driving to the town. Good central location for Saugatuck as well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here one night on our way elsewhere. We got in at about 8:30PM and they had us backing into site #1. Problem is that this site was next to where they were showing an outdoor movie and we were concerned about the noise level. When my wife went in to see if we could have another site that wasn't being used, the guy was quite surely, insisting that they didn't like to move people to different sites. Eventually his wife came in and we were able to go to a different site though by that time it was dark and more difficult setting up. But that was the only problem we had. Though there were no trees for shade, the bathrooms and showers were immaculate and once quiet time rolled around, it was indeed, quiet. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very nice campground and well kept up. We were here during the week and were the only ones here. Only negative is there is no pool for the kids, but you are not far from the beach so it's no big deal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this campground because it is on the Kal-Haven bike trail. The trail goes both toward South Haven and Kalamazoo and there was easy access from the campground. It was a 5 mile ride into South Haven and Lake Michigan Beach. Owners were very friendly, has a well stocked store, grounds were well kept, bathrooms and showers exemplary. We used the wide open mowed field behind the campgrounds to play frisbee with our dogs. Once the trees mature, it will very nice and a 10. We would use the campground again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the second time we have stayed here. The park is very clean. The restrooms and the showers were immaculate. My only complaint is that there was not a ton to do. The activities were spread out and there were not a lot of other campers here. After the playground got old, the kids were bored. It's a short trip into South Haven however, for restaurants, shopping and the beach. We really like the family that runs the park and are optimistic things will pick up as it matures. We will definitely camp here again in the future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a 2-year old campground so therefore there are no trees yet. The campground is very well kept and the managers are very friendly. I would rate it higher if they had cable TV. It's very big-rig accessable. The free Wi-Fi was very strong at our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground. We were there for several days in a pull thru site. This campground is spotless. Bathrooms and showers are the best we have seen in a very long time. The location is convenient while at the same time being very peaceful. There are plenty of fun activities for the kids. This is a newer facility and is a work in progress. We look forward to staying there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just spent our first camping trip of the year here this weekend. We stayed on the "premium" site which includes a kid's cabin, a swing and a hammock. Although the weather was dicey, our family had a very nice time. The owners had plenty of activities planned for the kids and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It is a new park and still has some growing in to do while the 2nd and 3rd phases are developed, but it is a great place to take a family. The camp store is well stocked and the restrooms and showers were immaculate. We will definitely go back again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This new park is clean, friendly and well located. You can ride your bike to a bike trail 1/4 of a mile away; 10 minutes to the beach; 10 minutes to shopping and dining in quaint downtown South Haven. The owners are very friendly and highly accommodating. Showers are single "rooms" used by both sexes, with a family shower available. Bathrooms were kept clean and well stocked. The grounds are clean, with only a few sites, as this is a new park readying itself to grow! No shade trees yet, but wide open starry skies at night. The only reason we didn't give it a 10-was there was no pool. But again you're right down the road from the Lake. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
We loved this brand new campground too. Easy in and out for big rigs (+38'). Super friendly, family owned RV park. The campground is clean & well manicured, nice playground for kids if needed. Future expansion plans will include a pool. Morning trash pick-up, open sky for satellite TV, a pig roast on Labor Day, close to downtown South haven. NOTE: If you want a pull through, stay to the RIGHT on the road, stop & walk to the office to register - otherwise you will have to back up a little to be pointed in the right direction! Best big rig spot: #21. We would happily stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this campground! The owners and staff were all very nice, the campground is very clean, the bathrooms and showers were exceptional, they had a lot of activities for the kids, the playground was very nice, sites were good sized. It is in a great location, just minutes from downtown South Haven and the beach. We just can't say enough nice things about this campground! We are already planning our trip back in the fall and again next summer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very well maintained and fairly new RV Rresort. Staff were helpful and friendly at check-in. Roads are paved and the concrete pads are wide level and long. We pulled straight into our site and had a lovely view of the lake. Big rig access is good. Very quiet, some privacy, plenty of space to park your towed or if you are only there for one night no need to unhook. Beautiful landscaping through out the resort, but the trees are still too small to give any shade, plenty of grass and a picnic table.There is a lovely pool, hot tub, clubhouse, small beach, and a fitness center as well as lots of social activities. The bathrooms were spotless and the laundry clean and well equipped. There is a security gate 24/7. Pet friendly with pick up bags and disposal station as well as a couple of places to walk your pet. Wi-Fi and cell were good. Walmart is just down the road and there are restaurants and wonderful sightseeing close by. This is an ownership resort and many folk have customized their sites with small casitas, patios, decks and fireplaces. There are age and size restrictions on all the RVs here. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful resort atmosphere rather than wooded campground. Very friendly and helpful staff, from registration to on site. No privacy, but very quiet. Plenty of room in October. Clean restrooms. This is a park geared to long term stay, but, we felt welcome even for the one night we stayed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a top notch park. Sites are kept in fantastic shape as are all the buildings. The owners and renters to be friendly and nice. I have to agree with an earlier post---for the price they should have cable. Our rig is 40' long. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice park with large lots and lovely landscaping. It is only about a mile from the Kal-Haven Bike Trail. We were able to ride our bikes right into South Haven! It was an easy ride, about 10 miles round trip. The only reason I am not rating the park higher is that there was no cable TV. The lots are wired for cable, but it is the responsibility of lot owners to hook it up. Lots in the rental pool do not have cable. I think for a premium charge of $58 / night, cable ought to be included. Otherwise, this place was great and we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Newer RV resort. Caters to high-end RVs, but others are welcome. Age and size restrictions on all RVs. Very clean and nice place but price is higher than most. Nice pool. Would camp there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is one fantastic RV park!! Very clean, friendly and beautiful overall. Staff are all terrific folks too. This resort offers many social activities like water aerobics, yoga, pickleball and weekly burger nights and complimentary cocktail hours. You sure don't find that too many places!! This is our third summer camping here and we plan to return for many more. Truly one of the best RV resorts ever!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Perfectly LOVELY RV resort. Sites were well spaced and provided nice views. The Kal-Haven State Park Bike Trail that led into South Haven was a definite PLUS!!! One of the loveliest pools and hot tubs we've seen. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites were clean, attractive and level. This was probably the most "high end" resort we have ever stayed at but the employees and residents were very friendly. It is close to town yet not in town. Beaches and state parts in the area are very nice. The only negative for us was the sporadic internet which was pretty much unusable while we were there. There is no cable service, bit satellite reception was good due to sites being open. Like other reviewers mentioned, the facilities are country-club like. We will stay here again next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has Tengo Internet, which is the worst available. Horrible connection here. Since good providers do exist, any park using Tengo automatically loses 2 points, since it is simply a way to cut costs. This park was built by someone who has never RVed in his life. It has good and bad features. All sites are for sale. Lake side lot property goes all the way to the water so you are not allowed to walk along the lake in front of the RVs, which is odd. The owner of the lot next to us has a storage shed with a toilet and sink. However, to get water, they have to run a hose from our water source. Very odd. We always shut off our water when we leave, but can't due to them needing water. Manager is geared toward owners and not renters. No tree issues, sites are large and the grass is very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful well planned RV resort. It is a very high end facility without the high end price in the south. They sell the pads but they also rent them nightly. It is a cement pad and paved roads (keeps everything very clean). Nicely landscaped with fire ring and table. The clubhouse/swimming pool/bath house is like a country club. They have a media room beautifully decorated and very comfortable if you want a place away from your RV for awhile. Large pool and sunning deck. There is a pond in the middle and beach at one end. Fishing and swimming, paddle boats. And all this is conveniently located at the best ice cream stand in the state. Fantastic, would definitely stop there anytime we go through Michigan. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We visited this campground a few years ago, and it is really coming along nicely. The sites are large and the interior roads can accommodate even the largest rigs. Nice clean clubhouse, pool and hot tub. Many of the sites are being purchased and improvements being made to them like coach houses, extended concrete pads, etc. The only downside is that being a "resort" they do not offer cable, but I'm told they are working on it. We will certainly be back when we are in the South Haven area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, Clean, Clean. This campground is awesome. Still new, and as soon as the lots are all sold, I would assume public camping stops. All the times we camped there we had a 5th wheel and were unable to camp lake side; have to have a motorhome for lakeside. Facilities are unbeatable and people are great. We have gone up for blueberry festival for the past 4 years. Just moved to Tennessee and might not go north very often now. Sure, after I get a motorhome and could get a lakefront site. Oh well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
NOT impressed at all. This is yet another west coast Michigan overpriced park selling lots, taking money from the travelling RVer to make ends meet, but not catering to them at all. We had a 3-night stay planned that we could only stay the 3rd night due to a breakdown 150 miles north. Had proof of the breakdown, but because we were cancelling with less than 14 days notice, that one night cost us $159 as they refused to refund a penny for the other two nights. They were only 20% full. No wi-fi, no cable, nothing but an over appointed clubhouse with no one in it. Pet friendly only if your dog can hold it till it makes it to the east side of the lake or the northwest empty corner of the property. The town has nothing to offer. The best restaurant is Maria's, but don't order anything but the lasagna. Not sure why this park thinks its sites are worth $53/night. I don't, and will not be staying here again. In fact, I was very glad we didn't spend 3 nights here! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My husband and I stayed here over the weekend. It was a really quiet park which was what we were looking for. We were without our kids so I wanted something geared more to adults. However, I think this would be okay with kids for a few days. They have a small playground, sand box, catch and release pond, small beach and beautiful pool. The lots are wide enough and the lawns are beautifully maintained. Some lots have been purchased and are amazing! Park was pet friendly. There is no shade, it is definitely has a resort feel if that is what you are looking for. The town of South Haven is pretty but was extremely busy when we went for a drive to the beach area. The beach is huge however and looks like I'd be great during the week when not so crowded. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice place. The sites all have concrete pads to set up on. The club house and pool is great. The staff are all very helpful. The surrounding area has a lot to do for all ages. We were here with a family of four. Our kids are teenagers and they were entertained when at the RV park swimming, playing horseshoes, pool, and shuffleboard. This park has ample space to maneuver with any size rig. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Well kept park with plenty of space between rigs and nice green grass, but that doesn't make a great park. We stayed here for a free week as did 90% of the other RV'rs I talked to. Now I know why it's free. As stated in other reviews there is NO cable available unless you own a lot. The posts are wired for cable though and one would expect that the management would offer cable to renters for a small daily fee. I would have gladly paid for cable because the air antenna stations are hard to get and drop quite often. Here's MY pet peeve: The sites for class A motor homes (drive ins on the lake or back ins across from the lake) are ALL facing the perfect direction so you get full sun on the awning side from noon until sunset. This may be OK in cooler weather, but not during the summer IMO. Can't even see a LCD TV outside between 3pm and 8pm because of the sun. There is no shade anywhere, but trees are planted and should provide shade in about 20 years. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean, well maintained resort. Our site was a back in, ultra wide and deep, all utilities worked fine. The pool area was top notch. I would have given the resort a 10 if it had some shade. Was lots of small newly planted trees, area looks like it might have been wooded, then cleared?? Close to the beach town of South Haven and a short 2 mile drive to a great u-pick blueberry farm Degrandchamp in South haven. Camped here with 2 grand children: 3 and 6. We would go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The reason for not a ten, is access to the park is tight and you need to get out of the way for somebody to pass. The park is really clean and nice and very close to a beach and fine eatery's. Would return in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed as part of the FMCA visitation program, but daily site rentals are available. The only possible negative was the lack of cable, but TV reception via batwing was very good. We picked up all networks plus others. The Wi-Fi was also very good during our stay. We also had good reception with our Verizon broadband. Everything was super clean and the laundry nice was very nice. They even have a storm shelter under it. There is also a foot path leading to a store next door, which was nice if you need any last minute items. This is one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed in during our 5+ years on the road and is one of the top rated parks in the country by Trailer Life. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Don't know what the rate is. We had special tickets that allowed us to stay free. This is the prettiest RV park I have ever been to. The people are very nice. It is very clean. Nice level, paved spots with grass all around. There is a beautiful lake also. The only reason I gave an 8 is because there is no cable TV and the internet is a little slow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful, quiet setting. Concrete pads, good space between sites. New clubhouse with large screen TV, kitchen area and great room. Best of all for me was the workout area with new equipment. Laundry room and bathrooms spotless and new! Quaint town with lots of shops, restaurants, harbor, beach. Wineries nearby. Great sunsets! We liked it so much we extended our stay from 3 days to 6! Will stay again whenever we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a wonderful resort. It is fairly new so as the landscaping matures it will even be better. The staff was friendly and the setting was very peaceful. Not alot of road noise and the fountain sound was relaxing at night. Great clubhouse, pool and hot tub. We will definitely stay again next year. I also appreciate how easy it is to get around. We have a 45' motorhome and unlike other parks this one truly is big rig friendly. We stayed in a lakefront site (174). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean newer RV park. Sites are nearly level. Rules are overlooked for the "regulars" but others must follow closely. The "lady" working here should run a boot camp and not a campground, horribly rude! It's a shame, because CG is nice and so is area, but we will not return here due to some of their staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice CG. Sites for MH overlooks a pond. Kids enjoyed the fishing. All hooks ups in great condition. Site level. CG looks very well taken care of and very clean. Pool area was very nice. Close to town and the beach. Staff was very nice and helpful. Trash picked up right at your site. Would definitely recommend this CG and the South Haven area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. It is located about 10 minutes from the beach. Sites are level and well maintained. Pool area and clubhouse were great and landscaped really well. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I would have given this park a 10 but the water pressure was not good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice place that is fairly new and will be much better in a few years when the trees grow enough to provide shade. It is what I would call a "high end" resort based on the price and amenities. It has all concrete roads and pads that are perfectly level. No pull-throughs, all back-ins. The pool and clubhouse are beautiful. The restroom/laundry facility is very clean but pretty small for 177 sites. I think the assumption is that most traffic in the future will be Class "A" motorhomes. Good Wi-Fi reception but no cable TV. I think $51.00 per night is a little over priced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park should rate a 10. But no cable TV? This park has every amenity except Cable, which is available if you make arrangements in advance. The grounds are well taken care of and the employees very friendly and helpful. We plan on staying here again very soon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park. Although all the sites are back in there is plenty of room to do so. There is a lot of room between site and a very large amount of room to the rear of the sites. It is a very well designed park. We were assigned a site in a new section were probably the first there. There were a couple of problems, power and water, but they were quickly taken care of. The park seems to be fairly new so there wasn't any shade yet but we loved the park. All the sites were cement and very wide and deep. A class place. The only reason we didn't give it a 10 was there isn't any cable TV. With all the expense given to the park, swimming pool etc it seemed odd. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I would have rated this park a 10 if the roads in the campground were not curvy. I feel that a curvy road makes it extremely difficult to back in any style of trailer and stay off of the grass. The cement pads were wide and level with the sites about 90FT X 40FT. I agree with the rest of the reviewers about this park and we will be going back to the park again. There are some permanent sites here and the campground is selling lots to anyone who would like to purchase them. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new park located just east of South Haven and the interstate. The sites are spacious, all have concrete pads, and a few are being improved with a coach house and landscaping. Nice "beach" on the lake; beautiful and well appointed clubhouse. Very friendly staff. Also, this park is very pet friendly! The sprinkler system is a bit over zealous and we had our pad drenched each day, but don't let that discourage you from staying here! We did find that the entry to the site was a bit tricky to avoid driving on the lawn with a 45 footer, and our friends had the same problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here in September: low Fall rate. Spotless!! We felt it catered to the higher end motorhomes, but was very comfortable with our 5th wheel. VERY friendly! Level concrete pads and are very accommodating for your extra vehicle. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV resort is one of the most beautiful places to stay in regards to the clubhouse and pool facilities. Clubhouse with a gorgeous nautical themed decor has a fully equipped kitchen, computer room, fireplace, games, a loaner library, two massage chairs (1.00 for 3 min.) a workout room, laundry facilities and more. The grounds are still being developed with plantings and trees, most sites are not shaded. Staff is VERY friendly and helpful. We've stayed here four times already and plan to stay more. Ownership of sites is promoted, but plenty of room for overnight guests and seasonal RVers. There is a beautiful bike trail called the Kal-Haven Bike Trail within a short distance of the park where you can bike four miles into S. Haven. Recommended restaurants: Thirsty Perch and Clementines. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The resort is growing, but still very young. The restrooms, pool and hot tub were very nice as well as clean. We would have liked to kayak or paddle boat on the small lake, but it cost $10 per hour to do so. No trees on sites, and grass still struggling. There is a small swimming beach with sand volleyball. People who own sites on this property were friendly, and staff was available. Sites a bit too close to consider purchasing. Near the beach and South Haven activities. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very fine resort. Management is very nice and works hard to get everyone involved in activities. Pool/clubhouse area is wonderful. The park is still very new and some of the grass isn't 100% yet but they take very good care of the property. In 5 years, this will be top of the line. Only complaint is the lack of cable TV. Other than that, this is a great place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are in South Haven, this is the park to choose. However, it is very pricey for what you get. The sites slope way down in the front. No cable TV and few local channels. People are allowed to walk through the lake front campsites to get to the lake and then they fish right in front of your RV! The staff is very friendly, but not very knowledgeable about running a campground. They have a way to go before they should call this a resort. We had no drinking water for 3 days because one of the wells was allowed to go down too far while they put water into the lake. No one ever came and told us when the water was safe. We heard it by word of mouth. Their weekly activities on the weekend usually cost money. The last one was $6.00 a person for a cheeseburger and some potato salad. Plus, they're always trying to sell you a lot, and think nothing of knocking on your door day or night or stopping you in the rain to discuss "opportunities". As I said, its the place to choose in South Haven, but it is definitely NOT a resort yet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is easily one of the top 10 RV resorts in the nation. This is a true resort with a wonderful staff, nice concrete pads with picnic table and fire ring, large clean heated pool, hot tub. The clubhouse is beautiful. It has a large plasma TV with satellite and surround sound. The Wi-Fi is free and fast. I can see four wireless sites from my laptop and good strong signal everywhere. This resort would qualify for a 10 if it had mature trees and I did have to use one board to level my fifth-wheel. One minor complaint that does not reflect on the park itself is that there is not a lot to do in South Haven other than the beach, fishing, and golf. If you are looking for a campground in this area, this is by far the best. (We drove through the other local campgrounds). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a relatively new park, and very neat and clean. The sites and the roads are paved. Unfortunately, the sites are not level. Our was a back- in site, which sloped up hill so the front of the motor home was up high, and we had to use an extra step to access the door. For the price you would expect to have cable TV available. The local channels available with antenna are very snowy so if you don't have a dish on your unit, not much TV is available unless you go to the club house. The facilities are very clean and well kept. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is two years old after an extensive makeover. The clubhouse is incredible with rooms and activities for everyone. The pool and hot tub are clean and well kept. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Great time here and enjoyed walking around downtown South Haven and the beach. They are only a short drive, 10 minutes, down the road. Will recommend this to all my friends. You will not regret staying here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is by far the best RV park that we've stayed in. Impeccably clean, super-friendly staff, and every amenity under the sun! The park is in a great location (about an hour away from Grand Rapids and about 4 miles from Lake Michigan), and I only wish that we could have stayed for longer. The clubhouse is amazing, as are the pool and hot-tub. I'd recommend a prolonged visit to this one! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park laid out very nice. Large cement pads. Good WiFi and a true resort pool with hot tub. Staff were excellent. Some sites are for sale. Paved roads. If all parks were like this trust me no one would complain! I plan on returning. About 3 miles from town and Lake Michigan. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV Resort is new this year and is the nicest RV park in southwest Michigan. The park is a little light on grass (right now), but all the pads are cement with paved roads into and around the park. You can also own your site. The owners and staff work very hard to insure everyone enjoys their stay. The Club House and pool are outstanding with bright clean showers as well restaurants laundry room. South Haven, Michigan is a great Lake Michigan port area with plenty to do with great restaurants and is a great wine area. Sunny Brook has a bright future and we have already booked several more visits this year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Having chosen a site off the Internet, sight unseen, we were pretty lucky. We had site 31 which is very shady, but we did have a very hard time getting our 25' trailer in there. Would be better suited for tents, smaller trailer or pop ups. Site was level. Many sites in park are not and many do not have shade. Sites 27 & 41 were either wet or had standing water in them so beware. Sites 19-35 all had a lot of standing water behind them. Took a hike passed the volleyball courts (by day use area) on the trail to the beach and down. Would be way to much work with children but we enjoyed it. Dogs not allowed on beach, we carried our small one once down there. Camps hosts were wonderful and friendly and kept the campsites spotless. Had a real nice DNR young man stop by and show us a spider and told us of a night hike he was leading that night. We really enjoyed our stay here, but depending on where you are, it could be iffy. There were a lot of groups that camped together, but nights quieted down. We look forward to going back and walked around and chose the only sites we would consider. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nicely separated sites, although sites are on sand, lucky to get a patch of grass. No real playground, only a jungle gym. Beach is too far a walk across 2 hot parking lots. Over priced when you add in the daily park fee. Beach is small and water was full of green slime. No park programs offered during our stay, only on weekends in the middle of summer! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We reserved a grassy, level site 42 x 45 feet based on the reservation service description. Upon arrival we asked if we would have a problem with a rig our size. We were assured that big rigs use the park all the time with no problems. Our site was a patch of earth with sparse grass and what appeared to be a gravel pad. We backed in and were so unlevel our bubble was clear at the end of the level. Jockeying a little forward and a little backward failed to budge the bubble. My husband decided to just pull out and go back to the front gate. In no time we were hubcap deep in sand. The "gravel pad" was a thin layer of pea gravel over sand. To avoid making a bad situation worse, we talked to the Camp Host who sent a Dept. of Natural Resources guy to help us. He brought a shovel and boards. His comment was that we weren't in bad and he would have us out in no time. He layed two boards end to end after shoveling a bit. When my husband pulled forward as instructed the last board shot backward and bent the front bottom cap portion of our 5th wheel all to heck. They said they had no other sites except one that was "worse" than the one we were on so we requested a refund and insurance information. They refunded $29 for the entrance fee required and all but $8 of our prepaid reservation. They said that was a non-refundable fee. The DNR guy did help my husband secure the front cap of the RV so we could proceed to a commercial campground. The gentleman who led us to our site there said he had the same thing happen at the park and had to pay $150 to a wrecker to get him out. He said it happens all the time. My advice is don't go there unless you have a pop-up or tent. Compared to the Ohio State Park we had just left, this place was a dump. No more Michigan State Parks for us.l We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We made reservations on line, having never been there before we weren't sure about the different loops. When we arrived, our site was very unlevel. After struggling to get level, we went back to the office. The young lady at the desk was very helpful and we were given a different site to move to. It's about half mile walk to the beach on Lake Michigan (or you can drive) We were one of a few motorhomes, lots of tents and popups, but we had plenty of room. We camped here in a Motorhome.
