The Traverse City KOA is located about 15 minutes south of Traverse City in an area of Michigan known for its outdoor activities. In addition to the beaches and water access available downtown, we are only a short drive from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore and boast numerous area breweries and wineries. The campground has a jumping pillow, swimming pool, miniature golf, gem mining, barrel train, and much more.
