Whether you are just passing through seeing Michigan's splendor or taking an extended family getaway, Traverse City KOA has amenities for the whole family to make your stay one to remember.

Cool off on those summer days in our sparkling heated outdoor swimming pool or challenge the family to a game of miniature golf, basketball, volleyball or horseshoes. To make your camping experience as convenient as possible, we offer a well-stocked General Camp Store, complete with camping/RV accessories, groceries, souvenirs, and movie rentals.

The Traverse City area has many rewarding attractions to visit, including, but not limited to, the Sleeping Bear Sand dunes, local orchards, wineries and vineyards. Come have fun in the sun at the delightfully charming Grand Traverse Bays, where you can rent boats or jet skis, go parasailing or just lounge on one of the many beaches. Or hit the links and play some of the 40+ golf courses within one hour of our campground. The Traverse City area also boasts an abundance of lakes and rivers where you can fish or canoe.

Our friendly staff looks forward to serving you and making your visit to our Traverse City camping resort as memorable as possible.
