Very nice campground right on the Saint Josephs river complete with a boat ramp, fish cleaning station and on site storage. Park is open all year and they allow long term stays but all the sites in the park are very clean and well kept including long term. Fire pits, level gravel pads with plenty of parking, good spacing between sites, 50, 30, 20 amp, some pull thrus, fhu's, water & electric, primitive and tent sites. A little gem of a city owned park with great staff and easy check ins. Will definately stay here again whenever we're back this way. - papaken

Two night stay, at this gorgeous city-owned park beside the St. Joseph River. Very clean modern bathhouse: did not use. Swings by river, walking paths, game areas, small play areas, wide sites, easy access and close to town. Updated connections, very clean with easy access.
Walked with my small dog. Paths lead to river and boat launch. Fish cleaning station. Cabins available. Very beautiful location and forest park atmosphere. Screen rooms/tents work here and sun loungers would be great. Paved road around all very tidy sites also nice for walking. Excellent book exchange in office. Ice available and firewood. - RamblynRose

We stayed a couple nights at this park and I was so very impressed with the friendliness of the park manager, the overall neatness of the park, and just the whole atmosphere of the park. We were in the newer section. Site was spacious, level and easy to get into. The river flows along the edge of the park and is so pretty. It is near Lake Michigan and we used this as our base for our sightseeing. We didn't use the restrooms, showers, etc. but I cannot imagine they were not as clean and neat as the rest of the park. Good cell service. The only thing I missed having was a laundromat. We would definitely stay here again. - Darcan

Thousand Trails has begun selling off lots either permenatly or seasonally. The result is all of the good spots are gone. The membership they sell is a first come first serve deal with a maximum 21 days at a park. Then they sell the spots. A bait and switch at the least!!! THis park follows a theme of deferred maintenance at Thousand Trails. The place could be nice but all the monies are stripped out and a bare bones staff is left to try and hold it together. We reserved well in advance a FHU site. Arrived and the best we could get was water and electric. There are many dead trees market for removal and appear dangerous. There is an 11 foot limb that that they put a sign up for rather than cut down. Also a 10 foot power crossing. WATCH your height in a 5ver!!!! Verizon cell worked but had trouble with data during the race and peak periods. Tough to get Satellite but we pulled it off after a few attempts. Most dont! We would not recommend the park at this time. - BrianStacifulltimers

Big rig friendly and the park has a very good layout. Full service utility sites are out in the open with little shade but great satellite reception. We stayed in a shaded area (no sewer and partial satellite reception) with the dump station and laundry nearby. We will make a return trip, hopefully the entrance road will be in better condition; long and ruff. - GaHoosier

This park is over 60 years old, and probably updated the latest I'd guess in the 60's. As such everything is old and deteriorating. Our Thousand Trails membership enabled us to stay for free, as I thought that was a fair price for what you get. The access road is horrendous dirt and pot holes. Our 50 amp Rv tripped 3 times due to low voltage and the park wasn't even full. The pool was clean although the bottom needs a complete re paint job. This is a "first come, first served" park as far as reserving a particular site, and as such you might get 30 amp or 50 amp full hookup if lucky . There is a nice shady back loop but with a 11' tree limb warning, and low overhead wires, care should be noticed. There is also a bear cave with entrance through the office (fee required). Not very exciting as it was wet and muddy with all the natural features destroyed by years of over zealous campers. I think if this campground was "updated", it wouldn't be too bad. The staff calls it "rustic". Good over the air HDTV, but zero WiFi and minimal cell service. Good for an overnight stay, but that's it, if you can make it through the long access road without breaking an axle. - Jimpav

Riverfront Park Campground is well maintained and a pleasant enough place to stay. Access to the spaces was difficult to a novice travel trailer owner. Spaces are not angled for easy parking. They are straight so you have to make a 90 degree turn in a fairly tight space. No mention of this was made or help offered until we were having difficulty - unlike other RV parks we have stayed at where help was offered at check-in. However, the reason we are only giving a mediocre rating is our experience making reservations. We called months in advance to make our reservation and spoke with the owner who told us we did not need a confirmation number. We also called a month prior to our arrival date to confirm & were again told we did not need a confirmation number by the same man we spoke to previously. When we arrived at the campground, to our dismay, they had no record of our reservation, and said the full hook up sites were under construction and none were available. When we complained, they said they had one available till Monday because another camper had been delayed in arriving. This worked for us as we were departing Monday morning anyway. However, we were really put off by the poor office management practices and will not be staying here again. Reasonably quiet park, staff pleasant but completely unorganized. - vmak57

Parks in the local area are few, but this will work for an extended stay, as its access to the parking areas is rather tight (poor planning), but is fine for a smaller rig (30 ft or less). Low tree limbs is not an issue, but dust due to gravel drives is probably the biggest problem. Quiet/family oriented atmosphere with a lake/riverfront on the property. Nice people, no issues encountered with neighbors and no road noise. Many long term tenants, no mobile homes and no trash noted. Had some problems with the 50 amp service, but the office was accommodating and remedied the issue with no drama. No documentation/receipts provided for the stay from the office. If I needed to visit the area again, I would return based upon our visit/experience. - wolffden

This "resort" is an older seasonal trailer park in the woods beside a lake which has a beach that is heavily used by local people. Perhaps they might put short term RVs in empty seasonal sites but we asked for a pull through site and these are situated on one side of the very busy parking lot for the beach. If you want a short term site do not go here. - JTD2

As a previous reviewer said, this "resort" mainly accommodates either permanent or seasonal RVs. However, we spent four nights here and were quite happy with the place. This wouldn't have been true in the summer season, however, since this resort is aimed at families with kids, and we like quiet. But in late September, it was lovely (great tree color, beautiful lake) and peaceful. The owners are very nice. We would come back here for another fall visit. - NMCamper

This was mostly a seasonal campground. Seasonal units were in decent shape. Campgrounds really should have rules about seasonal units keeping items in the camper and not in piles stacked everywhere! Our site was right off the gravel parking lot which is what we got to look at with the fenced in woodpile and propane tank. Our site had a concrete pad that you could not park on, it became your "patio" and the rest of the site was gravel. Our fire ring was a truck tire rim sunk all the way into the ground. Very hard to keep fire going as not a lot of air would circulate down there. Owners were nice but we had to go find them to check in as there was no one at the check in booth. There were only 3 other campers there when we stayed and a few seasonal families. There were no activities. They had a nice sand beach and small beautiful lake. Firewood from then was very expensive, green and most logs were too large for the fire pit. They had a nice camp store and my kids did enjoy the ice cream. The owners dog was kept in a outdoor area and barked for hours at night. The handicap shower was horrible! Had a door that did not shut or lock and was in the maintenance room for the bathroom it was filthy and the water came out black!!! Main shower building was better. - weasel007

I spent 2 months, Sept 11, 2016 until Nov 12, 2016, in the camp ground while working in the area. I found the campground to be very nice. I didn't have any problems. The history of the campground is interesting. The manager was very helpful and friendly. I will stay again next time I'm in the area. My rate was $375.00 per month. - David Kaplan

This is a nice campground run by very nice people in an area that we love to visit. It is also a campground that is being brought back from a state of neglect. The new manager is working diligently to address the maintenance issues, mainly the bathrooms. The showers had peeling paint, insufficient hot water and poor drainage. They were already working on those showers when we stayed here so I feel confident that these issues will be addressed quickly. In fact, we are already talking about when we can come back. The sites were very large and well shaded and fairly level. The utilities could have been better marked. There was a large cement brick to keep us from running over the sewer line. The Wi-Fi was free and speed was adequate. We had no problems with cell phone coverage with AT&T and Verizon. We stayed here on July 4th and it seemed that everybody within 100 miles stopped by to see the fireworks display in downtown Benton Harbor. That made for a very noisy night. However, we did not hear any fireworks within the park. Which tells me that management was very proactive about telling campers about the noise and we very much appreciated that. - Meyer Camping

We had originally planned on staying here for 2 months due to its price, but once we arrived, we saw a few "flaws" in our plans. There are A LOT of feral cats in the campground park, and the cat spray can be overwhelming at times to breath. We had taken a spot in the rear, as the other spots were too close to other RV's for my taste. The spot in the rear had plenty of room, even if another one moved in next to it. Our first night there, we not only heard, but felt the vibration of a stereo bass by the neighbors outside the park. They have it so low or whatever it is that makes it thump and vibrate, and just sit in their yard doing that 3-4 times a day--and sometimes at night. Not only do you put up with that, but non-stop barking dogs tied out on the other side of the fence and more thumping stereos that drive up and down the road. Within a week, we were very disgusted. We moved our RV up front to get away from the thumping stuff, but the cat urine is smelled on and off everywheres. A woman who lives in there, feeds them, which keeps them coming around daily. We could still hear the stereo, but the vibration wasn't felt up here. We weren't even in our spot for a day, and while we were outside, the person who lives in his coach was screaming obscenities about killing kids, blowing up playgrounds, ripping up rapists. Very vulgar and alarming. This went on for an hour, and I did report it to the manager, who was busy at that time making popcorn for the train rides they have there in the amusement park they have been restoring forever. She told me he was probably singing to music. I walked off. Call it what you want. There wasn't any music that was loud coming from his place. We decided to leave. The manager is new, doesn't know much about RV's, but is very nice. The area is very high crime though. Not worth risking staying in this area. We heard guns being shot our last night there. - happy2013camper

Stayed with friends, older campground, a little rough around the edges, could use updating. Near town and South Bend Indiana. Other than that a nice campground. - User2262

Stayed here, six of us, and found it expensive. $246.00 for the six days we were here because they charge extra per person above original price. So, for a mom and dad, they then charged extra for each of our four kids. Unfair pricing. Especially when the bathrooms are small and only kinda cleaned, showers with tiny stalls and lame pressure, and very small sites, most of them in the blaring sun. It does have nice fishing ponds and a quaint playground but even that is spoiled by a persnickety, nosy old man owner on a golf cart scolding campers for having a bicycle "across the line and into the next lot". The next lot, empty! Also, he is riding around staring at us on our site, looking for infractions "against the regulations". If not him, another man, the groundskeeper, on his golf cart, haranguing the kids at every turn. Not fun, and not welcoming to kids, I feel they really only want the fancy motor homes and people who never step foot out of their air conditioned, TV, Not Camping outfits. Skip it here and try the state parks, more fun. Less nagging. - 7ofUS

This park is good for an overnight stay, the pull through sites are a little tight and you may need double length hoses. Lots of young families and a big play ground for them. It is a little off the beaten path for a over night from the highway. - acadiandave

The location of the park is very nice and beach access is a fun tromp through the dunes; however, we were terribly disappointed in the space we were given. If you come here, be sure to drive around the park, mark down the spots that look interesting and then ask for those. We were driving a long way and really needed a nice place to rest before moving on the next morning. We took spot #164 as assigned and found it to be a spot that was absent-mindedly created out of a corner. There is a sign in your way, the bushes are thick and hog up the majority of the space and the spot isn't level. And, to top it off, the fire pit was full of gross trash from the previous campers. We were didn't realize until walking the other loop to take the dunes trail that other far more appealing sites were to be had. My Mr. was too tired from driving and didn't want to request a different site after he had already put down the jacks and got the AC running. I don't know if it was because the park employees try to get this spot "sold" first or what, but for $31 + $9 for the park pass is way too much for what we got. I highly doubt we'll stay at this park again, but if we do, I'll be far more picky about which site we get assigned. For the record, site #54 looks spacious, shaded and has 50 amp service. If it weren't for the nice dunes and the "better loop" I'd drive right by and never give it another thought. - Ree Klein

Reviews definitely depend on time of year you camp here: we experienced the same. Park is unique with the lake and sand dunes.
The Campground in summer: yikes! Sites 94 - 171 looked like a tent city at a rock concert with some trailers thrown in. The campers looked miserable. Large grassy/dirt areas with no privacy and kids running all over the place.
Fortunately we were in the "Modern" campground, and sites 67-74 were the only spacious sites we saw. However this loop also had many very close inside sites. The outside loop sites are also subject to road noise.
In the summer I would be very cautious about the site you choose and your personal space requirements. Our site had electric and some privacy.
I would visit this park again due to the unique sand dunes and the lake BUT only off season and not on a weekend. - Breezy2

Clean during our visit but there were a couple dozen sites occupied, if this was peak season it would be different. There is additional $9 a day for out of state residence nightly fee does NOT reflect this. Daughter rented a cabin next to our site had very musty smell probably from being closed up for the season. - Steph and Jim

Nice location for this part of Michigan. Friends came out from Chicago to visit. Fairly level gravel site, good utilities, very nice folks. Free entertainment provided by folks getting stuck parking their 5th wheel for the summer. We had to leave our toad at the main office. Sites are very close, so the way out was exciting until we made our turn. We would stay here again as long as we get the same site - others appeared too short or narrow (trees) for our rig (43 ft). - Frances and Sparky

We were just here overnight and it was OK except for the price. $25 would have been a fair rate but we were running out of day and needed to stop for the night so we bit the bullet. Gravel sites 98% full with long term rigs. Voltage was good, but water pressure was only fair. It was convenient for our route. We might stay here again if we happen to be passing through. - zrxh14

This park is nice and clean. It says its across the street from the dunes; yes, they are but it's about a 3 to 4 mile walk to the dunes. If you bring a bike of car you will be OK. The owners of the park were very nice and helpful. They did have a playground but if you have kids like mine 15 and 11 playground was for little kids. They do have a pond but no swimming of fishing, just to look at. This is a nice campground for just relaxing, but it has no extras. We would not camp here due to how far the walk to beach is and no extras for older kids. - rv1

Out of about 25 KOA's we have stayed in during the last 5 years, this ranks near the bottom. Roads, while paved, are very narrow. Tight turns for big rigs towing. Some extra gravel on the sites would help. Playground has old, tired and broken equipment. A couple of items looked very dangerous. The small lake looked like a cesspool. The bounce was so dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned for years. The pool was good size and looked good.
Lots of bugs, bring repellent.
Will never be back. - kegmaster

Great campground for kids. We don't have any, so we thought there were way too many. Fires in the evening kept smoke lingering under trees in park.
Easy access, older KOA, site was small. Park was completely full on weekend. Then it emptied out by Monday. Great place for families. - Smunro55

We stay here every fall while attending the Paw Paw Wine Festival and the St. Joseph/South Haven tourist areas. It is a nicely kept older KOA. We had a pull through site and had plenty of room for our tow vehicle and slide outs. Entrance to park is directly off a highway so be aware or you might miss it. There is a slight highway noise and a train track nearby. The only thing we missed on our trip this year were the homemade donuts that the owner used to make and sell. We will return again this fall. - Looney Bird

Shady campground with a recreation pavilion and a large pond with a floating island on it for swimming, also an older-type playground. The wi-fi is free; they'll give you a code at check-in. The bathrooms are very old. It's hard to adjust the water temperature in the shower, and there are no outlets inside. Quiet place. - sierramom
