South Haven Family Campground to Double in Size

A major expansion is underway at South Haven Family Campground meaning more family fun for West Michigan campers and outdoor recreationalists. The expansion nearly doubles the offerings and amenities at the campground, which sits on 50 acres just ¼ a mile from the Kal Haven Trail and 5.5 miles east of the sandy shores of Lake Michigan.

“We are so excited and yet overwhelmed with the growth this year,” says Susan Novotny, who owns the park with her husband, Kyle. They purchased the land in 1999, opening their main building in 2007 and the campground in 2008. “We started to camp as a family when our oldest was six months old,” Susan says. “Now, our children – Katie and Kylie – are in college, yet we still share in the joy of camping together.”

Currently, the campground offers 37 sites, five cabins and one cottage, as well as a camp store, restroom facilities, dump station, laundry facilities, game room, “Triple K” Raceway and Camp “Grounds” Espresso Bar and CafĂ©.

The expansion adds to that 33 water and electric sites, three cabins, two park models, a 40x120 pavilion and pet park area. Special attractions will also include a jumping pillow, water-wars feature and several new bikes for campers to rent. All cabins are outfitted with Keurig coffee makers and a new security gate is also being installed.

Renting cabins at South Haven Family Campground start at $64 per night up to $159 per night, depending on the amenities. Two of the cabins have outdoor hot tubs, which means they usually are rented first.

Families enjoy unlimited activities at South Haven Family Campground, with themed weekends – including the September 28 Halloween Spooktacular and the “Everything Chocolate” Weekend with a chocolate slip-n-slide, chocolate pudding wrestling, chocolate milk guzzling (out of a baby bottle) and other planned activities. Craft projects and events like outdoor movies, are also offered throughout the summer.

South Haven Family campground is open April 15 through October 30 each year. It has been one of the “A” rated parks for the fourth year in a row for customer service on GuestRated.com. Only 44 parks nationwide were given this honor in 2011.
