We stayed at this KOA for one night in August on a trip to Mackinaw Island. We were going to tent camp. It was a cold and windy day. When we went to check in, the person working upgraded us to a 1 room cabin for the same price as a tent site since the weather was nasty. This was... More

We stayed at the Petoskey KOA as part of an RV rally and were pleasantly surprised by this quality park. We normally stay at State Park campgrounds and find most RV parks make us feel as if we never left the suburbs. There are enough trees here that it feels more like a campground than an RV park, and with... More

We have stayed at 3 or 4 KOA's around the state of Michigan over the past few years. After our first stay at the Petoskey KOA, all other KOA's have not been nearly as clean, family friendly and offered the amenities that Petoskey does. My only complaint is that they say they have WIFI but it didn't work our entire... More

Petoskey KOA is our favorite campground! We have been camping here for many years now and the staff have watched our children grow up. Every time we camp here, we feel like we are coming home. The staff even know our children by their names. There are always fun activities to keep the kids busy. The sites are large and... More

The service was second to none. We were escorted to the site and that made us feel like we really mattered! Friendly staff, clean sites. Only concern was Mr Skunk that decided to visit, but he went away without incident. Certainly not the fault of KOA.

We make an annual trip to Petosky KOA for the 4th of July. to visit friends in Harbor Springs. It is a wonderful family place and one of if not the best campground in the US. The staff is always helpful and friendly and the campgrounds are well maintained. It is well worth the value.

Was our favorite spot to camp for the last 20 years while it was being operated by the Rose family. The last few years, although still owned by the Rose family, the park is being run by employees and the change is evident. We used to go for three weeks a year and then cut it to one week and...

Pros: Clean, nice pool, friendly staff, cute cabins Cons: So many skunks! Cleaning supplies used in cabins smelled very bad. Expensive. Says wifi is available everywhere, but really only works when you are sitting next to the main lodge.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of our park. I'm sorry to hear you weren't completely satisfied during your recent visit. Wildlife, and on occasion skunks, are unfortunately part of the territory during a night spent outdoors and as much as we'd love to have them move on, we can't force them to do so. What we... More

It is an average KOA, problem is, due to the fact that, it is a chain they give no discounts for AARP, AAA, Good Sam, they only want you to buy their discount card, which might be ok if the other KOA parks were even as average as this one, however, we spend most of the year in campgrounds,and other...

Very well ran. Great people and one of our favorites! We like to stop here every year. Not far from downtown petoskey and yet our far enough to be camping. Love the furnished cabins, the pool and the hot tub. Its like having all the amenities of a hotel yet still camping. Not that's my kind of roughing it!
