Nice campground with full services. Unfortunately one day the power went out in the entire campground just after noon time. It took a while to locate the problem and it was a hot, humid day. We were not notified when the power came on. Most staff people have been very kind except one male was very rude and yelled at me which is unacceptable behavior toward guests. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Within a couple hours there are lots of beaches and all that means. Closer is shopping and services needed.

Staff was friendly, Park was clean. They were just getting it ready for the season. Several trailers with foam boards around the bottom were in the park for the winter. Maneuvering was easy enough for my 40' 5th wheel although some trees were pretty close to other sites. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a fairly nice campground, with wide, all gravel roads and sites. Sites all looked pretty level. We had full hook-ups plus cable TV, and of 13 campgrounds we used on the trip this one had best, functioning WiFi by far. Verizon coverage was also good here. One note though: avoid site 22 (which we had) as it is right next to playground. Staff was friendly enough, bathrooms and pool cleaned daily and in good condition. Bathrooms and showers had good water pressure and hot water was good. Although initial entry way to grounds was not all that appealing, rest of campground appeared well maintained. Most sites are surrounded by mature pine trees. Besides pool and playground, they have some horseshoe pits, a laundry (which we did not check out or use), and a minimally stocked camp store. While there were a fair number of seasonals, there were still plenty of nice spots for travelers. I would stay again. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Frederick Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids is a must-see sculpture garden and park! For craft beer fans, Trail Point brewing in Allendale is very good, and of course there are many more choices in Grand Rapids.

Campground served our needs for a one night stop and was the only one open in the area. It looked like there were lots of amenities during the season but all were closed for the winter. In my opinion, the overnight price should have reflected the lack of access to the pool and other amenities (but maybe just keeping the water on and sites working in the winter substantiates the high price). All on-site services worked fine and were in good repair. Site was level, nicely wooded, and long and wide enough. Close to town. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful campgrounds- you can tell the owners are working hard to improve! Great accessibility and ease of check in. Friendly staff and nice sites. The only thing we did not like was the hayride with party lights and blaring music flying around in the evenings....took away from the natural camping experience people seek with KOA. We would go stay in the city if we wanted a club/party feel. Our children agreed. That was the only negative and I feel that it may deter avid campers. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Tent.

KOA is usually a good value and while some are better than others, you somewhat know what to expect. This KOA was tired and basically seemed uncared for.

It didn't have the neat, tidy appearance, the staff did not follow through on internet and it lacked TLC.

We would not stay here again or recommend it to others. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Motorhome.

It is under new ownership and they are trying to get the infrastructure up to standards. Other than the bugs due to the damp Summer this was an excellent base camp for the area. WiFi and Cell Reception was spotty but from our understanding the WiFi issue is their service provider more than the park itself. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a first rate campground and very family friendly! Everything about it is well planned out. Pulling up to our site, I was impressed that they had signs warning of children at play. Our site was deep and wide, and the grounds were extremely well kept. Visitors are expected to sign in at the office. Bathroom and showers were very clean and maintained. The main playground was large with lots of stuff to play on. A second playground is provided for younger children with age appropriate equipment. I was very impressed to see the staff walking throughout the playgrounds in the mornings checking the integrity of the equipment and cleaning up any wrappers. The pool was clean, but could have been a little warmer. Due to our schedule, we weren't able to partake in the hayride or movies. Putt-putt and game room was well liked by the children. We surely will be back and recommend it to our family and friends! We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Incredibly large, shady sites, streets wide enough to make backing in fairly easy--there are no pull-through sites in the park. Activities all around the park for kids. Quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, very willing to help make our stay a good one. Would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Motorhome.

Using my rating system of possible 4 for "view", 3 for "facilities", 3 for "location", and 1 for "staff friendliness", I give this park a 7. The campground is under a beautiful canapé of trees, so satellite use is unlikely. They do have decent cable, however. The WiFi was practically useless from our sight. The streets are dirt, so dust is a problem. On the other hand, I love parking on grass rather than dirt, and I was able to do that here. The main positive is the owners were wonderful. I could tell they really care about their park. They asked if we were happy several times. I would stay here again. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Motorhome.

The sites are very large, but ours had a lot of trash left on it. The laundry was clean. There are a couple of ponds that they advertise as fishing lakes, but because of the lack of rain they were very low. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice park with large sites in well spaced mature pine trees. We were delayed in arriving due to mechanical problems. We called to inform the park of our issue and they were very sympathetic. When we arrived they only charged us for the nights we were there. This is very much appreciated by travelers. Laundry was very clean. I would stay here again.

Woodsy. Lots of shade but sites have not been raked or otherwise prepared for guests. Big enough and fairly level sites. Occupied sites mostly messy. Excellent cable. Wi-Fi only at laundry and office. Staff not particularly helpful. Fairly quiet. We would not come back. Busy of course for the Labor Day weekend.

This was a very "rustic" type campground. All the great things you would expect but not the "RV" park look: ie: no trees and such. The sites are LARGE and roomy and there is plenty of shade. I would definitely camp here again given the chance. Only drawback was no "Kamp K-9" but I understand that is coming for next year! We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Motorhome.

Well maintained campground with very large sites. Sites 22-65 are heavily treed and offer lots of shade. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park has wide access roads that will easily accommodate larger RVs. This is an older campground but appears to be well maintained and kept very clean. Most sites have been upgraded to 50 amp electric. Wi-Fi is only accessible near office and back bath house. Park is adding four new camping cabins and has added a nice wooden play structure at the front near the pool for 2010. We camped at Allendale / West Grand Rapids KOA in a Travel Trailer.
