Campground News



We are very happy that you like to share your camping experiences with your family and friends. We also love to have them as visitors.

However, to ensure our facilities continue to be available to our other registered campers (as we only have a limited capacity) we do charge a fairly high visitor fee.

Adults 12 and over $20/day
Children 6-11 $15/day
Seniors (60 and over) $10/day
Children 5 and under -free

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 speak with the office IN ADVANCE if you are planning for a special occasion as a surcharge will apply to any additional guests.

Guests must use the visitors parking lot and must abide by all campground rules. Campers are responsible for their guests while they are on site.

Meet Your Hosts

Daniel Parent and Karen McAndrew

"Spring is here and we can't wait until opening to kick the 2014 season off, if only it would stop snowing!"

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, we had the opportunity to purchase the Cardinal/Ottawa South KOA and have 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 and hosting our long weekend BBQ, 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 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
