The campground was clean and the staff was friendly. There were a lot of families with kids. The sites were small, very close together, not level and very difficult to back into; expect to make several attempts. It's an older park that hasn't been updated. Several sites share electric panel. Dump station on slight hill as you enter the park. No TV, cell phone or wifi service since the campground is in a ravine, completely surrounded by trees. On a positive note, the beach is very close and nice; sandy with very few rocks. - max7_3

This is our favorite "hidden gem" campground, and we drive up annually from central IL to this southwest corner of MI to stay for 4-5 days. The campground has a 1/4 mile stretch of Lake Michigan beach that you MIGHT share with a dozen people during the week. Weekends are a little busier with day-pass traffic to the beach, but still not very crowded.
The camping area is wooded, nestled between shaded dunes for a nice protection from hot sun and heavy winds (you can leave your awning out all the time). A short walk over some boarded stairways/walkways and you are on the beach! It's a great blend of environments that I've never experienced at any other campground.
This side of Lake Michigan has real sandy beaches, crashing waves on breezy days, outstanding weather in the summer months, and sunset views over the Lake that you will not forget. For us Midwesterners, it's as close to an ocean beach experience as you can get.
The campground is older with water/30 amp electric sites (no full hookups), a dump station, as well as primitive tent sites and small cabin rentals if you don't have an RV. Sites are sandy (which I don't mind) and fairly level. There are two "loops" of RV sites, one larger loop for smaller trailers/motorhomes, and another smaller loop with larger sites for bigger rigs. We have been here in a 35' motorhomes and trailers and have always been able to get a larger site in the smaller loop, which is actually a more private because day traffic goes the other direction.
Sites are nicely separated with heavy rope dividers on wooden posts. The office has very friendly staff on-site every day, and they sell small supplies, firewood, ice, drinks, and ice cream.
Recent years have brought some upgrades in walking paths (to the beach) and a new bathhouse in the smaller loop. This is a town-owned park facility and it's obvious that they do put money and care into it, to keep it updated (as much as possible) and maintained. - scottydl

This is a little known park. You can walk to the beach at Lake Michigan which is 100 yards away. Very nice sandy beach. People bid on the park to run it. Sites are okay for a more rustic stay. Value was good because of access to lake which is not dog friendly. We would stay here again, maybe for a week. If you rent a site access to beach is included otherwise people without RV's pay $7 a day for beach access. Lots of people stay in tents. - Mark from Missouri

This is a really nice park. It was mostly filled the weekend we were there, even though it was after Labor Day. Lots of kids, but very quiet. There were a number of activities for the kids. Our dog enjoyed the dog park, and we appreciated the very helpful escort when we arrived. They sent me an email a day or so before our reservation date, offering us the ability to order pizza delivered to the site when we arrived. Also a nice touch.
We had a premium site, and it came with premium wifi, but I wasn't impressed with either the premium or the regular wifi. We liked our site: it had a nice gas grill, patio set, and a two-seat bench with a table in the middle by the fire pit. Very pretty.
We went to visit the dunes during our stay, and it was ~1/2 hour drive to get there. Honestly, my only complaint, and it was a pretty major annoyance, is about the weeds that had small burrs in them that grew along the park's dirt roads. Unfortunately, our dog got burrs in all of her feet before we knew that they were there. The plants themselves weren't really obvious: they looked like any other small, short weed right next to the road and the burrs were green and not obvious at all. We hadn't gone 15 steps before the dog refused to walk anymore, and we had to carry her to and pick out about 20 burrs from the fur around her feet and in between her toes while she cried. (Which of course stuck our fingers while we were trying to remove them.) I think they should mow about six inches further in from the roadway, and that would solve the problem. Once we knew they were there, we were able to walk in the middle of the road and avoid them. - Morning Star

There are a few things to be aware of prior to making a decision to stay at this KOA: 1. The fee displayed on the website when making a reservation is not the fee you will pay. They charge a $6 per day "resort fee" which means that every site is $6 more than the quoted amount. You do not discover this until you have clicked the reserve button. 2. You are charged the full amount for your stay at the time of reservation. The KOA reservation policy states that normally you will be charged a deposit of one night's stay, but sometimes the campground may charge the full amount. But if that is the case, it will be stated on the specific campground's website; I could not find any such statement. Again, you do not find out about this until you click the reserve button. 3. They say they have free WiFi. However, they do not have free functional WiFi. The free WiFi seldom works even to just get email. When we questioned this they said it was because the campground was full and had too many people using it. However, we stayed beyond the weekend when the campground had maybe 10% occupancy and it only worked occasionally for a short time. They will sell you "premium WiFi" for $8. Our experience with the premium was better, but you still got dropped occasionally. Our attitude about the campground would have been better if these things were known before making the decision to stay in this campground. A few of the other negatives: • Dirt/gravel roads and sites. The roads can be dusty and the sites dirty. Some sites have grass. • Very few sites have any shade. Okay if you like to sit in the hot sun. • Here are some of the good things: • Staff is very friendly. Probably the KOA's staff is their best asset. • Lots of activities for kids if you like that sort of thing - especially on weekends. • Most sites are pretty good size. • Some nice landscaping around the office. - RXA-ADM

nice park although the beach was rocky and was quite a hike from the campsite. We were required to purchase a seasonal/annual permit @ $32.00. - max7_3

We have camped at most of the state parks along lake michigan. Some how we never made it here until now. Our site was grass over sand so plan on some blocks under the levelers. We ended up near the playground which the kids loved. State park play grounds are hit an miss. This one was one of the better ones. Roads are paved and can be a little tight to navigate. We disconnected the toad before entering the park. upon arriving at our site it was clear that it would be tight to back in. It was a good thing the campers across the street had not arrived otherwise it would have been difficult to back in with one shot. Verizon signal was about 50% internet speed was good but not top speed. ATT signal was a little better. - TeamErnzer

Clean, well-maintained State Park, with friendly, helpful young men at check-in station. The campground was full on a nice fall weekend - luckily, we had paid the extra $10 to reserve a site. Paved interior roads, and mostly level dirt sites with some grass; and trees that helped with privacy, since sites are rather close together. Dog walking trail, and even a nearby Dog Beach. We would stay here again. - FranM

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. - RichardB1952

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. - 870xprs

This is a very nice, small park. We stayed here 3 nights and felt very safe and comfortable. The owners were out of town but there is someone who checks on the park. It is close to the town and beaches and has an entrance to the Kal-Haven hiking/biking trail. The park is well lit at night. It is a FHU park with 50amp. The odd thing is the area you park on is grass and where area beside it is a paved strip. The sites are fairly short, but pretty level. It was easy getting a satellite signal. Fairly quiet although you do get some road noise from the highway. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - jacknpeg

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. - Kokomo

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. - Zdog

This would be a great family campground. Area set aside for tents and popups. Park like setting. Fishing pond. Don't know why it is not full. Added an extra day when we got here. Very quiet. Would stay again. The only reason for the overall 7 rating is the roads. Just go slow. - ChrisnMarv

Beautiful park, meticulously maintained, a bit pricey but it's the nicest private park we've stayed at. Pool and clubhouse are nice, enjoyed the Friday night 'mixer' with complimentary beer, wine and appetizers. On our walk one evening, I bent over to tie my shoe, and some jackass hollers out his door "hey, don't let your dog pee in my yard!" Guess he thought that was why we stopped, but it wasn't. I understand why he would be protective- he had a nicely landscaped property- but, c'mon man... Loved the concrete pads and asphalt drives, wide interior roads, it's a 'newer' park, so trees are not large, but they're getting there and the landscape is maturing nicely. We stayed at an owner-improved site, which had a larger patio, resin table/chairs and fire-pit behind the coach. Other sites available for rent don't necessarily have the same amenities. The park is adding a second 'phase' with an additional clubhouse, so there's a bit of construction visible, but we didn't see any activity while we were there (no trucks in an out, no dust...our neighbor said they will resume construction in the fall, to minimize impact on the residents). We will stay here again, should the opportunity present itself. - fastalker64

We stayed in an area still under construction because it was open and private. The sites are owned by individuals and very tight. In addition, many have added casitas to their site which crowds everyone even more. Nice pool and socializing area. Paved roads. Dogs are currently allowed to swim in the pond but this open area will soon be taken up with construction of more sites. Management was very pleasant and helpful. Our firepit had not yet been constructed so upon request they brought us a nice portable ring. Wood was delivered to our site and trash picked up daily. - FT Travelers3

Sunny Brook is a lovely park with easy access to and from I-196. Gated park with beautiful flowers and nicely landscaped and manicured lawns. Internal roads are paved and sites are concrete. Power and water centrally placed and on our lot, the sewer was located quite far to the back requiring that we add our sewer hose extension. It appears that the sewer connection is in different placed on some of the other sites. We were located in the back-in's of the second row off the lake. The sites are a bit sloped from back to front but we were able to level with our jacks without the front tires leaving the ground. Big first step up into the coach. We drive a 45ft MH and were able to easily navigate the park and get into the site (without the car attached). Once parked, the site is plenty big for the rig and the car. The pool, laundry, and club house are very nice and well maintained. We were here a bit late in the season and during the week so not many activities, which is OK with us. Wifi goes from pretty slow to acceptable depending on the time of the day and activity level. Resort staff and other campers very nice, friendly and welcoming. Although the price seemed a bit high for this time of the year, we would return here if we were in the area. - LvR

We've been staying at this KOA for quite a few years for our annual fall trip. There are big improvements from last year, including a new store/check in area. We also noticed the owner checking tree limbs. Our site (#92) could use a branch or two trimmed. Electric, cable box and sewer were near the center of our site.The campground's pull thru sites were full during our entire stay. We would suggest an escort to the site, as some seemed to have a problem finding their site. We'll definitely be returning. - Looney Bird

A very nice family bought this last year so it may improve as they put work into it. With that in mind, this is an average KOA with fairly close sites, level gravel, some grass between sites. There may be only one row for bigger rigs. Lots of tent sites. There was a big branch hanging over our site which just missed the roof while getting into our site, 92. WES are way back in the site and seemed to work fine. Wifi stumbles along. There is quite a bit of road noise especially near the front of the campground. If big rig, disconnect before going to the site as some roads are a little tight but manageable. Staff thought because the site was long, the we didn't need to disconnect. Getting to the site needs to be considered! Roads are paved. Forget about satellite TV as the entire campground is heavily treed. They do have cable. Pool, jumping cushion, volleyball and play area for children. Would stay again because not much choice in the area. Hope they're successful. - Team Asphalt
Jul 2016 - $48.00
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

Tight quarters, but they helped me back in 40' 5th wheel. No cable, say they have wifi, could not get it to work. Nice restaurant. Rate was for weekly discount. - Scheinin

The owner met us upon arrival in his golf cart and led us to our site. He assisted my newbie husband in backing our camper in. The sites are fairly close but we didn't have any problem with noisy campers. Clean campground, showers and restrooms. Very happy with our experience! - Linda T

Park was clean and neat, but sites were very tight. Cable was not available, and the wireless connection was slow and spotty to the point that it was useless. - GSVicks

Returned to Yogi Bears Camp Resort again this year...Chose a Premium site and it was spacious and well equipped, picnic table, wooden table and 4 chairs along with a wooden swing...As stated last year there are lots of planned activities for the 3 grandchildren to do and they had a ball....The camp store is well stocked and the grounds through out the campground are very well maintained...All utilities are well located and everything worked without any problems....We will return next August. - ANDYO1

We normally stay at another park a few miles west of Yogi Bear's. This year we thought we would try a new campground since we would be camping with a 3 year old in addition to her sisters. This is a family oriented campground with lots and lots of things for kids to do. The activities are well planned and did not disappoint. Sites are gravel, spacious and utilities are well planned, everything worked. The only negative I can think of is for its size they could use additional bathroom facilities, I always make it a point to check out the cleanliness etc. they were clean, but crowded. There are several sites in the section we camped in without sewer hook ups hence the bathroom crowd. Management might want to look at restricting the use of large outdoor rugs which are killing the grass and making a mess for the next camper. - ANDYO1

This was our first visit and it was very enjoyable. We arrived late and very happy to see nice café onsite with good food. Camp store is large with great options. Only critique of store is needs more organization, wait time seemed long no matter when we arrived. Sites are roomy with fire pits. Plenty of activities for kids. Highly recommend a stay here. - Dr sandra d
