Wow! Great campground-wooded, shaded, private, clean, friendly, perfect location. This is a winner. Stayed here in late September, so it was not crowded at all. We will return next fall. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

Top of the line KOA. We are not generally KOA campers because we find spaces are too close together. We stayed here to see Petoskey area and because it is off the highway and has cable TV. The back-in spaces towards the back of the park are the most secluded. Many have great trees and shade. We found the staff really accommodating in getting a site that met our needs. The website really describes the choices fairly well. This is a very large RV park so we imagine it is crowded, busy, and somewhat noisy in the summer. But kids should love it because there's so many activities, plus a large swimming pool. The grounds are beautifully kept. Good landscaping and flowers. Seasonal residents are separate. There are some park model units, also separate and very well kept. Just seems like these owners thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable. I would definitely recommend. The higher cost compared to other choices in the area was definitely worth it. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice park clean and well kept up. It is close enough to town that it is a just a short drive to whatever you would want to see. We were able to get satellite service with no problem but for some reason could get nothing off the antenna. The camp does provide cable but it is through a cable box that has to be plugged into the back of your TV--not an option for us. Our rate reflects a 10% KOA member discount. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

Lovely campground with concrete site pads. Staff extremely friendly. Convenient to Petoskey, Tunnel of Trees, and other local sites we were visiting. We would definitely return here. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a really pretty park in the trees. The nicest KOA we've been to. Staff was extremely helpful in getting us in for one night when our plans changed. I know this is an area that is very popular and the park was pristine but thought the price was too high for no sewer and 30 amp. All sites are paved and roads are good. Lots of activities and although it's on U.S. 31 it's back off the road and quiet. Our dog did enjoy Kamp K9, the off-leash park. Good Verizon data and voice. Short drive to town. We wouldn't stay again due to the price because there are better choices available at a lesser price. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall excellent KOA. They had a very friendly staff who were extremely helpful. The sites are immaculate and well maintained. The store is well stocked and clean. Bathrooms and showers are in excellent condition. Family activities for older kids and teens are limited. Activities are focused on younger children. The dog park is a bit out of the way but in good condition. This KOA is very close to all sorts of activities in the local area. Only strange thing was the firepits are below ground to make mowing easier. I would camp here again. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We made reservations at this campground at the last second because of a terrible mosquito problem at Tahquamenon Falls State Park. We arrived on a cool, overcast (56) windy day and were still able to enjoy the pool because it was heated to about 85 degrees. There were quite a few kids activities throughout the weekend. This is a well cared for campground with newer structures and nice landscaping. Roads and sites were paved. The kids loved catching frogs at the small pond. The staff was very friendly and the staff frequently drove past our site for area garbage pickups or a friendly smile and wave. The only plausible complaint during our stay is the playground could be updated. For us, this is a campground we would enjoy returning to for a week long visit to the Petoskey area. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an excellent park. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were guided with no problem to our Big Rig Site #94. Cement pad and patio. All the facilities are clean and well taken care of. Full hook-ups. Plenty of room for our RV and car. Close to Lake Michigan, Little Traverse Bay and the Bay Front Park & Marina. Beautiful area. We had advanced reservations which we would recommend, especially if going during the summer. We stayed here for 2 days, and the next time will stay much longer. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very well operated KOA. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our site was paved, but some sites are gravel or grass. The paved roads were a little tight for our 40 foot rig. It has a nice heated swimming pool and a jacuzzi. The laundry was clean and reasonably priced. There are activities for the kids. On Wednesday and Saturday morning, they sell fresh warm donuts. The campground is very close to the Little Traverse Bay Wheelway, a bike path that runs between Charlavoix and Harbor Springs. We would stay here again. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground is the nicest campground we visited. The staff is very helpful. The facilities are exceptionally clean and well maintained. Although, they did clean the bathrooms late morning which was inconvenient. The pool is on the small side but clean. The sites are average size and paved. About 1/3 to 1/2 of them are shaded. I like camping in nature. So, I deducted a couple of points for lack of trees and the abundance of concrete. The campground is gated and you are given a hotel room key type card to get in. They have pizza and ice cream available. We loved it here and will definitely go back. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a busy RV park. It appears that the staff works hard at keeping the grounds nice. Paved roads, parking area, and patios - very nice. Many sites have good shade which we like, but there are sunny sites too. Season lease people are in a separate area and are not as "trashy" as some parks' seasonal sites. We had a multifamily group in cabins near our site for a portion of our week-stay and they were very noisy. Understandably this is not something that a campground can control. There are not enough bathrooms for those who will use them so they are not kept as clean as they should. The site size is average for this type of RV park. The site rental rates are high but since they are busy they must be competitive. They have lots of weekend activities if you like those. Staff is very friendly. Wi-Fi was not real great at our site's location - especially using an iPad. When going to this area in the future we will likely stay here again. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice KOA. Beautiful grounds and well maintained. Very small lots, No privacy and very packed in. Fire rings are built inside the ground with no grate over them, I am very surprised about that because it was a major tripping hazard. While we were there dogs were barking everywhere, I think people left them in their RV's. Some people had 3 dogs. Petoskey is a beautiful place to visit. We love the state park there so that is where we will stay the next time. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful campground and is definitely one of the nicest we have stayed in. The entire campground is immaculate: very clean, neat, and with beautiful flowers and trees. The people are very friendly, and there is plenty to do on days when you don't have plans to go somewhere. Our kids enjoyed the playground and had a big enough area near our campsite to fly their kites. There is also a volleyball court, basketball court, and doggie playground. The pool and hot tub looked nice, although we didn't use them. The laundry facility was very clean and convenient. The cafe has great food and ice cream. The cement pads are nice for parking your RV, and then there is grass to sit around the campfire. The sites are definitely closer together than they are at most of the State Parks, but they are still very nice, and you have full hook-ups and wonderful amenities that you don't get at the State Parks. There's so much to do in this area, this is a perfect location. We came up for the Mackinac Bridge Walk over Labor Day, so rates were a little higher, but definitely worth it. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

One of the best campgrounds and the best KOA I have ever stayed at. I originally planned to stay for 3 nights--ended up staying for 6! Petoskey is conveniently located for day trips to Mackinac Island or Charlevoix or the other cute towns on the upper NE side of Lake Michigan. The park is very large, very well-run, and very secure (card security gate access). The back-in sites are fairly level and some-what shaded. The site placement gives one the feeling of spaciousness. The office staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The laundry, showers, and bathrooms were unbelievably clean. The Wi-Fi was very good. KOA's are kid-magnets, so need to be careful of kids playing and riding bikes when driving the internal roads. The pool looked nice, but was totally overrun with kids--would be very nice if they expanded their "adult only" hour to include the evening instead of just the morning! If you visit the park, try Mim's restaurant across the street...the Friday fish fry is WONDERFUL (as are the onion rings)! Food is cooked to order; portion sizes are large and the prices reasonable. It would be best to call ahead, place your order, then run across the street to pick it up and take it back to your site to enjoy with an adult beverage of your choice (no alcohol at restaurant). Also, if you have tire problems, Richards Tire Repair is across the street and VERY helpful and reasonably priced. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.
