This is a very pretty KOA and doesn't have the crowded feel that so many have. It's very pretty visually with flowers and nice landscaping. Maintenance seems to be excellent and the staff very friendly. Every site is paved and are reasonably level. The roads are tight but there are plenty of big rigs here. Although we are close to the highway, the road noise is not an issue. The park is close to Petosky and Charlevoix and you could make a day trip to Traverse City easily. We were very pleased with our stay. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice campground, lots of varieties of sites. Those up front are much more open, no shade, etc. Those in the back have a lot more shade and luckily that's where we ended up. Somewhat tight to get our 42' Class A around the roads but did make it without incident. Nice mix of park models with friendly seasonal folks. Very friendly and helpful staff, lots of activities going on due to the 4th of July. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

Very large park that is actually a Sun RV resort run as a KOA. The park is kept very clean. Roads are a little tight in some loops. Lots of activities for children. WiFi not so strong. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Downtown Petoskey is just a short drive. Nice shopping area. There is a local museum located close to the lake. There are several local hiking trails that are very nice. Lots of restaurants and shopping in the area.

Utilities are at the front on your campsite. Needed 2 lengths of hose for water and an extension cable for electric. Roads within campground are tight and narrow. Cable works well and wi-fi is excellent. Nice playground and a few daily activities for the kids. Pool and hot tub looked good but it was cold during our stay and we did not get in. Campground is very quiet at night. Well maintained. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a highly rated very popular KOA. I was here at the height of the summer season. I stayed upfront in a pull through site. Frankly, it's a tight fit. The water pressure was a bit low (28 lb.). There are, however, some beautiful, somewhat spacious sites. This Holiday KOA has a full array of facilities and has a great location, between Petoskey and Harbor Springs. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

Wow! After a month in the UP, including two State Campgrounds, we were very happy to arrive here. 50 Amp power, water, sewer and great cable. Paved roads, paved site and cement patio. This place has a lot to offer and the location is excellent. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

Take the ride up MI 119 the Harbor Springs and Cross Village and then work your way north along the lake to Mackinaw City. Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Mackinaw City are all nice towns to walk around.

Very nice campground, easy to book online and check-in was smooth. You are escorted to your site. Our site was paved, back-in with water and electric. A nice dump station is available. Our site was level and had trees. The sites are quite close so if you have noisy neighbors you will hear them. The amenities include swimming pool, hot tub, playground, laundry, pet area, cafe and community room which was locked. The workampers are all very friendly. Be aware that when you leave the park and need to take a left turn, the traffic can be heavy so you might wait a long time. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy to bike to downtown Petoskey on the flat bike trail across the street from the KOA. But be careful crossing the road. Petoskey Brewing Company is nearbyand has great beer.

Awesome campground. Paved pads, cement patios, level. Grounds are very well taken care of. Cable and WiFi worked perfectly. This alone is impressive because we haven't had good cable or WiFi in other parks. Showers are individual and private. I was talking to a local who brings her family camping here even though they live nearby. Campground is located close to town. I have no complaints! Very pretty campground and they have lots of ammenities including a hot tub! We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites were asphalt, pretty level, nice fire rings, picnic table, park is on a hill. Doggie park is down the hill, but shaded. Wasn't too crowded in the fall. Price high, flowers and staff nice. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

My rate reflects using $50 in points so was a good value. Nice park. Sites are a little too small. I always wonder why when there are lots of empty spots they put you right next to another unit rather than spreading you out when there is room. Close to walking/biking trails but you are not going to see the lake from here. A large seasonal section and lots of cabins. Utilities work fine. Wifi is fast but is Tengo, which is a pain to keep signing on. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great family KOA. The grounds were well kept and the pool was clean. Showers and laundry areas were very nice. The sites are tight. The only other issue is that one staff member was quite rude. This was certainly not problematic enough to ruin our trip. I would definitely recommend this KOA. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.

High-end KOA with lavish landscaping, every conceivable facility, and activities for all ages, such as flashlight lollipop hunts. The high camping cost was figured to be the result of lack of supply, and demand for the last spot in town. At $80 a night, however, our site and the adjacent one had more dust and dirt than grass. Wi-Fi went in and out. Getting a satellite signal was tricky. Vehicle washing was permitted. Verizon service was good. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Motorhome.
