Detroit\Ann Arbor KOA
Updated: May 7
Our Stay here gave us a great landing spot for the Canton Cup Memorial Day Soccer Tournament. We arrived on a Friday and departed on Monday. Here is our YouTube video on the same campground if you wish to listen instead of read:
My daughter and I walked the dogs at Ann Arbor Koa and here our some pictures, video of the walking trail, and our review. The Detroit Ann Arbor KOA is located on the southeast side of Ann Arbor in Ypsilanti and is a great location for visiting Ann Arbor, Detroit, Canton, Livonia, and the surrounding area. Our site was a pull through and had full hookup with 50 amp service. In 2021 the campground was recently converted to a KOA and they have made improvements.
Many mentioned potholes in the road and our diesel motorhome had no troubles and as you can see from the pictures the roads are nice and in good condition. As a tribute to the motor city all of the roads in the campground our car themed. Most are named after Detroit Brands. We have a 35 foot Class A and the roads were wide and site 19 was easy to get in and out of. The park would be tight for the really big rigs but 40 footers should be able to navigate the campground well. Call ahead and describe your setup when you make a reservation. The staff were very helpful and guided us into reserving the right site for us.
The store and laundry are in great condition and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Hay rides occurred daily as far as we could tell. The beach has room for all and there is a nice wooded park and huge water slide. There is a huge field at the entrance. While we were there people were walking their dogs and playing baseball in the grass.
We enjoyed our stay and especially like the trail and pond. Including the walk through the campground the trail around the pond is over a mile long. During our time hiking and fishing the pond, we saw ducks, garter snakes, muskrat, and swans. The fishing was fantastic there are many spots along the trail to fish. We used Mepps black fury and similar and caught a handful of bass that were good fighters. I’ll put a link to the lures below.
