The South Haven Area Chamber of Commerce was pleased to welcome new member Kal-Haven Outpost Campground with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, May 12.
Kal-Haven Outpost, South Haven’s newest campground is now open! Located on CR 687 just south of Baseline Rd, the campground’s nearly 50 acres is adjacent to the popular Kal-Haven bike trail and less than 15 minutes from South Haven and Lake Michigan.
With 70 sites in total, there are options for all types of campers- from rustic tent sites to pull-through RV sites complete with water and electric hookups, to cozy cabins that sleep 6-8 people. There is even a fully-furnished house on site with two rental units, for those who prefer to have their creature comforts while still enjoying all the campground has to offer. The entire campground is dog-friendly, and boasts a fully modern bath-house. Each campsite has its own fire ring and picnic table, and there are community fire rings and gathering places where campers can enjoy lawn games and socialize. The camp store has snacks, drinks and camping staples like charcoal and sunscreen, along with a variety of board games that can be checked out for a rainy day.
Partners Rob Kempton and Scott Whiteford take great pride in having designed and built most of the structures at the campground themselves. What they didn’t create personally, they made sure to source locally whenever possible. It has taken them about a year and a half to transform the property, which was formerly a family farm, to a fully-functional campground. Kal-Haven Outpost will kick off their inaugural season with an open house on Saturday May 13th at 3pm, and invite the public to stop in and see what they have to offer!
