Very run down facility. Low water pressure (30 psi). Had electrical issues with the 50 amp service. 103 volts on one leg, 137 volts on the other. Our electrical management system kept shutting down the power to prevent damage. Couldn't run our AC due to the issue. The office said it shouldn't be a problem because "the wiring is new". They told me there was no one available to work on it.

The roads are dirt with no gravel. Good luck with the roads if it rains.

No cable or over-the-air TV signal and too many trees for satellite signals.

It's just an old run down park for nearly $50 per night. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We like the fact that there are lots of trees. We loved the heated pool which was very clean. Bathrooms and showers were neat and clean. We had plenty of room where our site was. We have a trailer but it looked a little tight if you had a motor home. Staff was friendly. They come around and collect your trash at your site every morning, which was nice. Only recommendation we would suggest is a little work on the picnic tables. Otherwise, no complaints. We will stay here again. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Good place to stay if you are going to Mackinaw, Sault St Marie, Tahquamenon Falls, or the Great Lakes Museum in White Fish Point/Paradise. We also really liked the Luce County Museum and the Tahquamenon Logging Museum. (Good history of the CCC there.)

This is a tired, old KOA that is badly in need of updating. The laundry room is in the basement and consists of 4 antique washing machines and 4 antique dryers (of which only 3 still work). The showers are separate from the bathrooms and modern, but also have a subterranean feel to them with no natural light and poor ventilation. My site was an uneven combination of mud and gravel, the pedestal had obviously been backed over at some point and was held together with electrical tape. The park has wifi but I was unable to make it work. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Truck Camper.

We stayed 6 nights in July, 2015. Some mosquitoes but not bad. Roads are sandy as are sites and a little difficult for a 42' RV to negotiate, especially to get to dump station. Sites close together and often back to back. Pets welcome. Need reservations several weeks ahead in summer- could not get a FHU site at all. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Motorhome.

Run by teenagers; typical KOA but a little bit worse for wear. Bathrooms were unclean, blocked toilet never fixed and very disjointed set up. As there are only 6 FHU, everyone is using them, although the park was not even a third full in peak season. The overnight stayers are placed in a gully which is filled with sandy grit - it rained & flooded. A very unappealing park that we would not stay in again. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Motorhome.

Kind of expensive for camping, but it is was it is. Best was the swimming pool. We all (kids and adults) enjoyed it and the water was so warm. We had the pancake breakfast, which was good. I have never seen cleaner bathrooms and showers. They must have cleaned them constantly since they were spotless various times of the day. We had a back-in site close to the main building which is pretty level. The only con is the playground, which needs some TLC. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Since there have been no reviews of this KOA in 5 years I wondered whether or not it was still open. It is, and I can understand why it doesn't get a lot of RVers. We stayed here last weekend and got one of the only 6 FHU, pull-through sites. It was also one of the few sites that you might be able to get roof satellite reception. There is one row of the FHU, pull-through sites in this otherwise heavily treed park. It seemed that they had more tenters, cabin customers, and pop-ups that larger trailers and motorhomes. I don't think that half the sites were taken for a weekend in the middle of their peak season. The park has some nice amenities (indoor pool, a cafe that prepares breakfast and several dinner meals, a playground, etc.). If you aren't too big, like a woodsy setting, and don't care about TV, you may enjoy this park. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed 2 nights at this KOA during our tour of Michigan's Upper Peninsula in early July and chose it primarily for its location to attractions we wanted to see. Office staff was courteous and helpful and check-in was easy. As noted in other reviews there are very few full hook-up sites in this rather large park. Most sites are shaded and most are relatively level. Some of the full hook-up sites are on the side of an incline and I can understand why some campers would have issues there; our site was a full hook-up site at the foot of this incline and we had no problems getting level. The park was clean and quiet. The fire ring should have been cleaned out better and the picnic tables are pretty worn. Wi-Fi reception was best if I sat at a table in an adjoining empty site. While it could use a "sprucing up" in terms of painting or other maintenance there was nothing objectionable. The campground store had mostly just the basic groceries. The free breakfast was your choice of eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon and beverages, all made while you wait. A destination campground it is not but we would definitely stay there again. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Travel Trailer.

No sewer hookups. Not a good layout for a big rig over 40 feet in length. Island in entry way makes park entry difficult. Can't see entrance sign very well coming from the West. Not what one would expect from a KOA. We camped at Newberry KOA in a Motorhome.

The sites here are very uneven. I used every leveling block I had and had to jump the last foot off our steps. Disinterested staff, poorly maintained park. We didn't even want to look in the bathrooms for fear of what we might find. I will never return. How 'Trailer Life' rated this a 7.5/8/7 I'll never know!

A disappointing stay due to the run down look of the camp. The camp looks like it has not been updated in twenty years, much of the ceiling tiles were needing repair in the main building. Kabins were not clean and needed real window repairs, not just duct tape. Playground needs updating, looks cheap. Pool/jacuzzi was nice. Bathrooms/showers located in main building were too long a walk from kabins/rv sites. Owners need to do landscaping...piles of leaves and ash from campfire was left on our site from previous campers. Staff surfed internet and did not seem interested in working very hard. Our site did not have a grill, it had broken off and was left by the tree. They used the broken grill leg as a cigarette ashtray. Could be a great camp if they updated the facility and landscaped. We camped at Newberry KOA in a .
