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 can't wait for the start of the 2015 season, opening May 1st, looking forward to welcoming all of friends and guests back for another great year of fun and excitement."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
