On this week’s episode of Campground of the Week, we are talking about our family’s recent stay at the Holiday Park Campground in Traverse City, Michigan. This place is very special and served both as a great base camp for exploring downtown Traverse City, and as a peaceful waterfront lake retreat.

This is the type of campground where the site REALLY matters. We booked early (January 2, 2016) and were rewarded with one of the coveted lake front sites. Listen to this episode to hear us describe the various areas of the campground, and where you might like to stay if you visit.

Covert_ South Haven KOA Michigan

On this Campground of the Week episode, Matthew and Melissa Kellas are back on the show with a wonderful camping option in the great state of Michigan.

The Covert/South Haven KOA is located in the southwest corner of Michigan and is just a few miles from the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. The campground features an array of amenities, but Melissa and Matthew particularly loved the wide variety of recreational activities available including a Gaga Ball pit and trampoline basketball court. Another unique highlight? The u-pick blueberry field that greets visitors as they pull into the campground.

The Covert/South Haven KOA is situated in a well-loved vacation destination, and there are many great attractions and activities in the surrounding area:
