Had a wonderful time - awesome, family-oriented park!

Dan, Karen, Phil, Irene and the remainder of the staff at the Cardinal KOA always make our stays enjoyable - especially where there are activities to keep the kids busy. We thoroughly enjoy the weekend potlucks!!! Been going to Cardinal now for almost six years & will continue!

Really think it is unfair that we had to pay for dumping when the campground does not have sewage on any of the sites. Mobile dumping is free only after 5 days, our tanks fill much more quickly, this seems like a cash grab. Also more showers needed and often showered in cold water.

The staff is very friendly, and the washrooms are kept very clean. The activities are well organized. And it is nice and quiet after 11pm. The jumping pillow is still a favorite for my teenage kids.
Sep 02, 2014
A fabulous place for kids, so much for them to do. The staff are very friendly and always go above and beyond. We go to this location at least once a summer.
Sep 02, 2014
Great stay for Labour Day weekend - Fantastic job on the fireworks display and children`s activities. A little bothered that sewage pump out on the neighbour`s trailer happened during supper time - it put a damper on the family meal. Wifi service is poor.
Sep 02, 2014
Excellent Campgrounds, very clean and well taken care of. Lots of activities and features to keep the kids busy for days.I will definately be back.
Sep 02, 2014
kids had fun .. kinda pricy with extra charges for everything .. WIFI was not very good ... dog park had gaping gaps under the fence that allowed dogs to escape, so really couldn't be used as a dog run at all ! Our site was covered in gooey gum covered pine cones that stuck to everything, including our dogs and vehicles ! The price should be for your whole family - me my wife and 3 children !
Sep 02, 2014
Wonderful campground. Great place for families with children 10 years old and under. The staff was fantastic. facilities were clean. Amazing fireworks :). This was our first trip at your location and we can't wait to be back next year.

My family & I have been going to Cardinal KOA for the last week of August for 5 yrs in a row. We will NOT be going back ever again!!! The owners are complete ego-manical power-trippers and enforce their rules without good judgement and/or reason. They do NOT deserve my hard-earned vacation dollars. I will now go elsewhere & encouragefamily & friends to do likewise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ah yes, the gentleman that thought our rules did not apply to him and that he should be allowed to blare his radio even after the 10:00pm deadline as noise doesn't travel?? Lots of loud chatter after midnight traveling from tent site to washrooms. Can't be that bad if he came back 5 yrs in a row.

The campground was enjoyable for my children given there were lots of activities to keep them busy. However, I would not return to the Cardinal KOA. They were not accommodating to our personal situation and forced us to take down our second tent. Both tents were small and I am a single mother of two with a friend accompanying us. They need to be more accommodating to the ever changing family.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We only allow one sleeping unit per site. This rule is on our website and is also on our reservation confirmations. You were also specifically told this rule when you registered. It should have come as no surprise that you were asked to take the tent down or move it to a different site.

see you next year

Excellent. Attention to detail by the staff is impressive. Kabins look brand new when you check in. Fire pit, barbecue and bathroom very clean upon arrival. Staff also does a good job of leaving the campers alone at night time (for camp fire time) whereas other places they harass a bit. Thanks

This is hands down the best family vacation spot ever. I cannot believe how clean the cabins were. We can't wait to come back!
Aug 30, 2014
very nice and very clean
Aug 30, 2014
Wow! I have never stayed in a cleaner campground! The cabin, the bathroom, the grounds, the play ground and pool were all spotless and very well maintained. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended as a family destination.
