Great site, #9, near the road but you do not hear the traffic after one night. Wonderful clean park with excellent staff even when you ask silly questions. Just a 20 minute drive into Traverse City if you really need to see a city. And the pie shop. Just a bucket load of shade with all the trees around the park. Silver Maple???? Anyhow, even if you are a grump and sit inside all day there are too many TV channel to count. everything for anyone who camps. And reasonable. The only thing that was bad was the price of gas but we can't blame that on TCKOA. This was our first time at this one but not our last. Did i mention the delightful pool?

We had a Partial shaded site but some looked very shaded. Good Digital cable Chanels. Poor internet. Pool stayed heated but it was very crowded so we didn’t try it. Very long pull through sites. Did not use bath house or laundry. Got propane when leaving and was very shocked at the highway robbery price since gas is so low here. It was $4.99 /gal +tax. 14.6 gal was $77.22 or $5.29/gal including tax.

This campground is fantastic, especially for families. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The check-in process was smooth and simple. The store was tidy, clean, and had super cute apparel. The campground itself had 2 jumping pillows, a playground, gaga ball, volleyball, a pool, a small train ride, a mining station (costs extra), a mini golf area (costs extra), and an RC car area (available for rent or you can bring your own. The campground itself has beautiful trees that provide a large amount of shade. The shower house were extremely clean. The campground has someone driving around to pick up trash regularly too. I would highly reccomend this campground. This is the best campground we have been to yet and we will definitely be back!

This campground is beautiful. Very clean and kept up nicely. Not sure how anyone could call this place loud, we have been here all week and after 10pm it's very quiet. Close to Traverse City, yet far enough to not feel crowded. Pool is nice, as is playground. Would definitely come back next time we plan to come to Traverse City.

This park is loud, people playing music lots of yelling , people walking through your camp to get around with no regard to privacy. The park is clean and the staff are friendly. I do not recommend this park

This campground has an exceptionally friendly staff, very clean park with very nice amenities, and spot on Wi-Fi. Highly recommended. Very close to the dunes Park, the Lakeshore, Traverse City, winery tour. Wish we could’ve stayed longer.

We spent 2 weeks at this KOA, over the 4th of July holiday. It was a quiet campground, with level sites, and large mature trees for shade. (We were in #97, perfect for shade). A lot of amenities for children, and friendly staff. As typical of KOA's, the campground was clean. The campground is about 16 miles from Traverse City

It is 20-25 minutes south of Traverse City and about 45 minutes away from Sleeping Bear National Seashore. We got a back in site with a patio which we enjoyed. If you're coming with kids the amenities are great. We'd get done with activities during day and hit pool or bouncing playground. Great set up for campfire even though it really doesn't get dark until after 9:45.
