The Emmett KOA RV park is a nice park for total kid entertainment. It has a 4 acre pond with many inflatable toys for the kids, and a nice playground. It is a bit pricey too . It's the same as many parks we stay at, the adults can't follow the rules as well as the kids. No smoking on the beach, no pets on the beach, no glass bottles on the beach, all broken in our 1 week stay. The staff didn't seem to mind that this was going on, and I would have minded so much either, accept we had our 4 year old Granddaughter playing in the water. Cigarette butts all over the beach, dogs peeing in the water, one even pooped on the beach, now who wants to lay, or play near that. Staff needs to know how to enforce there rules, and clean up for gods sake. And the dump station when used block the parks entrance and exit, I hope you don't mind waiting to get in or out of the park. Won't be a return trip there for us. Thanks. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Superb family park with good activities available including many water "gadgets" in small lake. Park is not near anything, somewhat secluded, yet very accessible. Check-in staff was green and escort to site didn't comprehend positioning of power, etc. BUT he'll learn. Shower was very nice with some strange water controls - No hot water at sinks to shave. Park needs some plumbing work in bathrooms, but should be simple. Our site was a bit muddy after rain. We were in a class B MH with no slides or toad. Had water and power only, but dumped at station when departing. We would stay here again. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Motorhome.

A great place to stay with the kids; lots to do including the beach with water toys, jumping pillow, mini golf, and much more. My family had a great time. Wi-Fi was rather slow and the sites are quite small but otherwise our stay was very good. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is an older KOA. Our site was crushed rock and pretty level. The CG is about 4 miles from the interstate, closest grocery store is about 12 miles away. I think the CG is over priced: many empty sites. Staff is friendly and you get an escort to the site. The lake is very green with weeds. We would not attempt a swim even though it was pretty warm. We stayed here because it was the closest CG to end our daily drive. Ok for 1 or 2 nights. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Maybe it is because we are on day 47 of a 48- day road trip, but despite the fact that I prefer modern, resort-type, urban campgrounds, I loved this nostalgic family-oriented campground. Our site was grass, but it was level, facing the lake. It seems that you have to pay extra for some activities (and there were lots for the weekend) which could make it quite pricey. It was near the highway, but far enough to be quiet. If I lived nearby, I think I would come every weekend with the grandkids. Pavilion was very nice. They could use more washroom and shower facilities, though. Always full. Not enough for size of campground. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Truck Camper.

In my opinion this is an older KOA that seems a bit tired. The sites are too close together. When we were escorted to our site, the site next to us had loud music playing on a boom box playing on their patio. The employee was content to ignore the situation. Fortunately it was hot, we were there only for the night and we ran the A/C continuously. I will not return to this CG. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nicely wooded, shady clean campground. Upon check in we were led to our camp site (which was a very nice touch). Site was pretty level however we were unable to use the septic as it was to far away from our site and we did not have enough hose. Nice list of activities (some were a $ fee). Neighbors across from us were very loud with music and all well after 1am. Several dogs were also running around unleashed. We had our own dogs which caused issues there. Pond was nice for catch and release fishing and the kids enjoyed swimming in it. Mosquitos were quite thick, bring spray! Would give it a higher rating if the security were increased along with rule enforcement on loose dogs. Office staff was friendly, however the wood delivery man was not. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great little park, this was our second time here. We had site 7 which is a pull thru. Reason for not being a 10 is site was not level and hookups where pretty far to connect. Has a nice dog park which our dogs love. No kids so didn't rent anything so couldn't tell what charge was. Park was surprisingly quite. Will go back. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This park is very nice. It's close to the highway but far enough from it that there was no road noise. They have the best off-leash dog area we have seen. Staff are very friendly. WiFi worked well. We will stay here again. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The new owners have really been putting money back into this campground and it shows. They have upgraded the bathrooms and added gravel to the roads and sites(helps keep down the dust). The owners are also very hands on and always available. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Motorhome.

Another poor value KOA campground, hence the low overall score. It has good facilities for families, but campground roads are poor and sites are uneven. WiFi internet worked well. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a hidden gem of a campground. The campstore is cute and abundantly stocked with the essentials at reasonable prices. The owners were extremely accommodating and very helpful. The sites were adequate in size but could use some additional landscaping for definition and curb appeal. Most sites had many trees which offered a Northern Mi feel. The amenities that are listed are all in good shape and most were free. The restroom and showers were very clean although hot water was sparse at peak times. The lake had many water attractions (slide, rafts, volleyball) and the lake bottom was actually tolerable(sandy). We also appreciated the theme weekend were they played a movie at dusk and had childrens games during the day. The only downside is they need more 50 amp sites and could offer trash pickup each day. They have started to add the deluxe patio sites but some would be difficult to fit a large RV, be specific with the staff regarding your needs. The pull throughs were in an open area which did not offer shady sites. The weather was very dry when we stayed here which created dust clouds every time a vehicle drove down a street. Adding something to minimize this would be appreciated. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Motorhome.

The staff was very accommodating when we found our sites were muddy due to a recent rain. They were able to find us another site though we were not able to camp next to friends we had also reserved spots for. Overall, from reviewing other comments on this campground, it appears this place is trying to better itself. The area appears to be well taken care of but more improvements could be done such as better site layout, grass cutting and overall landscaping to drain water from some sites. The playground is good but it appears that more could be added to make it a little more attractive for the kids. Some of the year-round or seasonal campers were somewhat in dis-repair making the campground less appealing. Because of ash borer concerns, you must purchase firewood from the campground. Be prepared to pay as a small supply of quick burning firewood (dry pine) costs $5.00 a bundle and does not last long. Would I come back again? Maybe. I think this would be a great spot in the fall but over the summer, especially with 3 young children, I'd rather be at another campground that offers more activities for children. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Sites were very small. Didn't really have enough room to park the truck. Lots of drinking and loud partying going on, not our kind of crowd. Had no hot water for showers on 2nd day of reservation. Nice campstore,playground. Clean beach, nice fishing lake. Oneway roads not convenient for the way they park your rv. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
