Great fun for the little ones on our climbing wall. A challenge to reach the top and a soft landing if they fall off.

Have a swash-buckling good time on our Pirate Ship playground. Lots of places to hid and ways to challenge your skills.

We ask that you please advise your guests of this charge prior to their arrival at the front desk to ensure they are prepared to cover the cost. All visitors MUST register at the main office.
Please note that there is a MAXIMUM NUMBER OF VISITORS AT ONE TIME OF 5 PEOPLE.

Early Check In Fees $25/hour
Due to the increasing number of campers who are arriving before check-in time we are now charging $25/hr for every hour that you arrive before 1:00 pm for tents and trailers and 2:00 pm for Cabins and Deluxe Cabins.
We apologize for this inconvenience, however we do want to ensure that the campers who are in the process of checking out have our attention and can get out of the driveway and through the dump station safely.
After 1:00 pm (or 2:00 pm for Cabins and Deluxe Cabins) we will be happy to serve you with our undivided attention as well.
Meet Your Hosts
"We had another great camping year and as we shut down for the winter we send our sincere wishes for all the best, until we meet again. Looking forward to the 2015 season."We are dedicated to providing a fun and entertaining experience for your family. It was Daniel's life long dream to own a campground, and in 2006, he had the opportunity to purchase the Cardinal/Ottawa South KOA and has loved every minute since.
By placing a strong focus on recreation and service, we work hard to create a fun-filled family destination for the eastern Ontario region.
We love our guests! We like to go out of our way to meet our camper's needs and concerns. Dan pays particular attention to new RV owners by helping with their set-up and understanding of their new purchase. He is also our resident chef and can be found cooking at the Chip Wagon, Pizzeria or hosting long weekend BBQs, potlucks and holiday dinners.
Karen is always ready to greet you with a smile in the office and help with anything you need.
We are also passionate about the KOA Care Camps Trust that supports special non-profit camps for children with cancer across North America. Throughout the season we incorporate activities and opportunities around the campground to raise money for this special cause.
Look for us on our regular tours of the campground! We look forward to meeting you!
Daniel Parent & Karen McAndrew
