Many campers wait until Memorial Day Weekend to unleash their inner camper but we have it on good authority that the veterans plan their getaways a few weeks earlier. Why? Because we're offering a FREE night to anyone who wants to Come Camp & Care with us on May 9th & 10th!

You've been bundled up in your parka all winter, shivering each time you walked out the door. Just like you need to shake off the winter blues, your RV does too! Here are some tips to prepare for a summer of fun.

My husband, 5 year old, and I spent a three day 4th of July holiday here. The campground is ok. Our grass was a little long, the pool is nice for older kids, but no separate area for the little ones. The playground is a slightly larger version of what I have in my back yard. It's nothing spectacular. Other activities apparently cost extra. My son was asked to leave the bouncing pillow because we didn't know about the extra fee for a wrist band for this activity. He was very upset. When I went into the office to inquire about this, I was told it was $10 for the weekend and that I was told upon check in. I was even shown a piece of paper where in the corner the policy was printed. Only problem was we didn't receive that paper at check in and no one told me of the wrist band availability when I paid in full for my stay over the phone. No one was apologetic about upsetting my son. It's quite terrible that a "family" campground is so family unfriendly. We spent over $165 for our weekend for average amenities and rude ownership and staff. We will not be returning.

This was our 4th year camping at the Covert KOA. We used this location for our annual family reunion. 5-6 families staying up to 5 days each! Points of concern. Customer service. When they double booked one of our campsites, the owner stated "You really put me in a spot". How did we put them in a spot when THEY run the reservations and we had our e-mail confirming our reservation? Unclean pool. With our group of approx. 30 people, there was always someone in the pool. On several occasions, there would be WADDS of hair that felt like sea weed floating in the pool . Unclean Bathroom. On more than on occasion, the bathroom at the bottom of the campground, was more like an out house, very unclean. KOA police. The atmosphere, especially on the weekend, was one of Better Watch out for the KOA police!. We found this to be very disappointing. The attitude the staff on the Gator UTV's choose to use with the campers was in my opinion, what can I harass you with today! I understand working with the public, as my business requires me to do that every single day and there is always 2 ways to approach any issue, one of control and dominance or one of how may we help you. It is unfortunate that the atmosphere, especially on the weekend, is one that is not at all friendly or one of understanding. Unfortunately, our family reunion will move to another Campground in the South Haven area.

We have stayed at the Covert/South Haven KOA for years and always have a great time. The campground is clean and well maintained. They make improvements to the campground every year. The staff are always helpful and courteous, and they definitely go above and beyond. There are plenty of activities for the kids in addition to the heated pool, jumping pillow, and fishing ponds. In fact our kids never want to leave! You can pick blueberries right inside the campground. The campground is close to the beach, boating and so many other attractions in the area. We were so excited to be able to camp at this KOA this year for Labor Day weekend. We all had a great time, both adults and kids alike(ages from 2-11)! All of us are looking forward to the next time we get to stay at this KOA.

My family loves this campground. We visit every year at least twice. The staff is very nice. Everything is well kept and clean. We always have a good time.

Perfect!!! First timers at a KOA…..and was very impressed. Kids felt safe in everything they did and were never bored. Showers were spotless and you get your own shower room. Grounds were very clean. The Saturday and Sunday pancake feed was very very good, its extra $, but these were very tasty pancakes. Over the top hospitality from staff. Pool was heated to a perfect temp. There is an additional fee ($10) for all of the kids play equipment, but that fee lasts the entire time you are there. We were there a few weeks before the blueberry season so we can’t comment on that part of the campground. To add to other comments left about this campground from other reviewers. Yes there was a local resident doing some shooting (on his own property), but it was being done in the safest and legal way they were required to do by law. It was really not noticeable, if hardly at all. The shooting was done facing away from the campgrounds and a large wooded area was between the neighboring property range and the campground. This is rural America and last time I checked, you can shoot on your own property as long as you are doing it in the safest/legal manner. The Wifi range is spotty on the outer edges of the property and would be even worse if inside an actual camper. Camper spacing is your typical campground spacing and are not any closer that your average campground layout.

Felt like part of the family staying here. Great amenities, our family of 4 had a blast (kids ages 6 and 13), will be staying here again in the future!

It's a typical KOA with packed tightly RV sites, but it's clean, extremely well managed, and the staff is incredibly friendly. We were given a personal attendant to show us to our site and he even helped our friends back their RV into their spot! You can't go wrong with a KOA for family camping. It was quiet, and it's away from the main road so road noise is non existent (we had a water+electric site in the rear by the rear blueberry patch). Pool is heated and was 85F on a day when it was 50F outside - nice! Garbage pickup in the morning so you don't have to go to the dumpster yourself. Our only complaint is that our site was supposed to have WiFi but non of our iOS devices picked it up. :( Speaking of which - cellphone service is spotty here. Update: stayed here Labor Day 2013 - the neighbor to the south decided to start shooting a semi-automatic rifle off at 6pm on a Sunday evening. We called 911 and the police said they would "check it out". 45 minutes later it was still going on so we called the main office. Macalee said that she would call the neighbor next door and talk to them. However, when my wife went to the office and asked for the manager, she was presented with Libby - WHO APPARENTLY OWNS THE CAMPGROUND. Libby proceeded to state "you are in the country and it's legal in Michigan; there's nothing we can do." When my wife returned to the campsite, they found an employee on a golf cart who explained that it was a trapper who lives two properties over and there was nothing they could do because it was private property. He also explained that Libby was the highest authority in the campground and there was nothing they could do. When my wife explained that his explanation was much more respectful and appreciated his candor, he then said that THE TRAPPER IS THE OWNER'S UNCLE.!!!!! So here you have a family owned business and yet family has no problem shooting off firearms next to a family campground where children are present, and the owner - Libby - snidely has no problem shrugging it off to paying customers. In other words - be weary of this campground. Very unfortunate experience. This is the 2nd time we've stayed here, and it most certainly will be our last. Highly recommend you look elsewhere. UPDATE REVISED: after about 2 and 1/2 hours - the employee on the golf cart said that they had spoken to "the neighbor" and asked him to stop shooting for the rest of the evening. It took him a while but he did stop. I would like to add that the neighbor shooting wasn't the issue - it was the fact that THE OWNER made no effort to put our worries to rest about our safety.

Just got back from a great weekend at this campground. Their staff and procedures are just top rate. We have been camping many times this year and this was the first time we were checked in friendly, asked if we wanted firewood, shown to our site, assisted with backing in and then delivered our firewood next to our fire ring! The facilities were all super clean (showers, bathrooms, store, etc.). The sites were spacious and well maintained. The campground very quiet at night and filled with friendly people. We have already penciled in to include another weekend here next year!
