Coloma/St Joseph KOA

Just spent the 4 day weekend at Coloma/St Joseph KOA in Michigan. It has about 120 sites. Tons of kids at this campground, which was great! Our kids stayed busy all weekend playing with their new friends. But it was very quiet at night, just people chilling by their fires. :-) It had a nice size pool and hot tub, a jumpy pillow, and playground. Our dog loved playing with other dogs in the Camp K9. We had a full hookup pull thru site, and it was not a very wide site, but my sister was able to pull her trailer in the opposite direction so we faced each other, so that worked out great! I didn't use the bathrooms so I can't comment on their condition. The pool could use more chairs and some umbrellas as it was in full sun. It was right off the highway, but the highway noise wasn't bad, and you could hear an occasional train. The office staff was very friendly. We will definitely go back.

Stayed at Hot Springs National Park KOA. Very nice staff. Bathrooms and laundry were clean. Nice store with Hunt Pizza and served hot breakfast. Camping spots were fairly level and paved. Would stay there again.

Has anyone ever stayed at the KOA in Rock Springs Wyoming? We are planning a trip to South Dakota and need to find an overnight spot... The "boss" doesn't like to stay in parking lots. She needs hookups.

We have stayed there a couple of times, going to / from Yellowstone. Within sight of the expressway and some oil tanks. It was clean, had hookups, fine for overnight.

Batesville, IN Koa

Stayed here a couple weeks ago. One word, deplorable.
We were staying overnight as a stop off, booked and confirmed a pull thru with full hook up. The site they assigned us was about 50 feet in total length and 4 to 5 feet higher on either side than in the middle, sites are poorly marked, water and electric hook ups are on opposite sides of the site (and camper). The grass was very long, the dumpsters were overflowing with trash. Their web site lists "restaurant" so this was a perfect place for an overnight stop and we wouldn't have to un hook. The restaurant was closed and gutted.

They sent a survey, I did the survey, I mentioned all these things, and to their credit, they did respond to me. However, the response involved a lot of blaming things they just couldnt help including the seasonals at the campground.

We stayed here again a couple weeks ago. Great place great staff. This was a third time at this place. It's always clean, well cared for landscape, easy pull through sites and hook ups.
I think the staff is work campers and they are always very helpful and nice.

austinp, I know you said your wife doesn't like camping in parking lots, but the Walmart in Rock Springs is one of the safest places you'll ever find (for a Walmart). It's only about 1/2 mile from the KOA. Just a thought.

Koko, thanks for the info on Walmart. It's not really the safety factor as much as being able to use all our facilities. We don't have a generator yet, so would be unable to run the TV or 120v appliances. Its her first long camping trip, so I think I'll try to make it as easy as possible for her. If it was just me the Walmart would more than meet my needs.

Well, the KOA is no looker, but it's very clean and the personnel nice. Pretend the tanks are large, beautiful boulders.
