Campground Reviews

Jul 01, 2014
After reading some of the reviews on trip advisory, I was hoping for the best... There was no reason to worry. We had an awesome time and will be back next year for sure. The kids had so much freedom and there was enough to do. Thank you!

the most amazing campsite ever, clean friendly. Deals with issues immediately, I thoroughly love staying there.

The owner at Cardinal, Dan has no sense on how to treat people properly. Very rude and and totally out of line.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is unfortunate that we had to call the cops to have your visitors evicted after they tried to run Dan over with their car because he would not let them park on the sewage holding tank at the front of the campground. Not the first time we have had trouble with your guests.

I love the facilities for kids at this KOA, the pool area could be expanded though, it was crazy crowded. They have added another pkay structue for toddlers which is awesome. The hay ride was nit the same though withiut the british man who did them last year, he interacted with the kids and was a lot of fun.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for your comments. You will be pleased to know we are adding another pool this year as we know how crowded one gets. We miss Brian too. He is quite the character and a joy to have here. Brian has retired & is spending a lot of time with his stepson who currently has cancer. Cheers

Beau grand site bien aménagé. Activités pour les enfants très intéressantes pour les enfants. La piscine n'était pas toute à fait assez grande versus la quantité de gens durant les weekends.
Jun 30, 2014
Les salles de bain étaient très propres, le personnel courtois et notre site (A27) était superbe. Nous y reviendrons certainement. Merci!

Tons of activites for you kids. Park is well maintained. I will not be returning because the lots are too small, it's very expensive, and it's not very relaxing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the Canada Day long weekend, this is the busiest weekend of the year for us and we had over 275 kids here. We gear our activities to keep the kids busy all weekend long. Our rates reflect the extra services we provide. Weekdays are much better for relaxing.

It is the best KOA that I have ever stayed in.

This Koa is geared for kids. Since I was babysitting my grandchildren for the week I decided to take them to the Cardinal KOA. The kids had a blast on the equipment and the heated pool and splash pad. They loved every minute of it. Would recommend this KOA to anyone with children.

We gave this campground a second change for our famiy reunion. The difference between last year and this year is like night and day. This year the owner was more relaxed about the rules interpretation and our camping experience was soooo much better than last year. We like it so much this year that we made reservation for 2015 already for our family reunion. One of the best campground for children

We would stay here on a more regular basis if the distance wasn't so great. Lovely park. Super people.
Jun 25, 2014
Super clean. Lots of things for the kids to do, even before the big summer season kicked in. We are a gang of 5 and stayed in a lodge. It was perfection. Close to the play area for the kids. Clean. Even had a kierig coffee machine! The folks running crafts and bingo were very welcoming and friendly. Just booked another stay for next month :)

Very relaxing and enjoyable. The couple who manage the park and their children were most welcoming and helpful

Family oriented, with lots to do with kids, people friendly

Great weekend. New park is great for the smaller kids. Every year we go and every year there is something new, the owners do a great job.

We really enjoyed our stay. The activites were wonderful for the kids and it was very clean. My only complaint is the high visitor fee for guests. Friends wanted to come for the day as they had never been at this KOA and for two adults and two children over 3 yrs it was $50.00. To rent our premium site for the day was $58.00. It seemed is a bit expensive and missed opportunity for campers

Très beau camping, parfait pour les familles avec de jeunes enfants. Il faut faire attention à l'eau grise étant donné qu'il n'y a pas d'égoûts, mais nous avons vidangé à notre départ, sans prendre beaucoup de temps. Nous y retournerons sûrement!

Our family had a great time on the weekend, our first visit to Cardinal KOA. We were impressed with all the activities for the children, cleanliness of the campground and pleased that quiet hours were enforced. We have alreaedy recommended it to our friends!

Amazing! The owners and team at KOA Cardinal are the best. Pride in ownership throughout the entire site and we all love the wagon ride with "uncle Si".
Jun 24, 2014
The campground is well-maintained, spotless actually. I found it a bit expensive for a family of 6 ($72 a night) but I figured with all the activities offered it was worthwhile. It wasn't clear to me that we'd have to pay extra for the waterslide, mini-putt and pedal karts (maybe I didn't read properly) but when I add all that up it was an enjoyable but pricey week-end. Everything else was A1.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cardinal KOA. There were so many activities for children and everything was well organized. Washroom facilities were extremely clean and well stocked. Thanks for a great weekend!!

My son and I had a great time! It was more than we expected! My brother and family came for a visit and they were very impressed with the campground! They will come back to camp with us next time. Thank you KOA 😄

Very organized. Very clean. Very very kid friendly!

Quel superbe accueil! Toute la famille s'est bien amusée et nous avons tous été très satisfaits de la qualité et propreté des installations ainsi que de la variété d'activités. Nous y retournons sans doute.

Nous avons aimez notre deux nuitées. Nous aurions aimez avoir des activités pour adultes comme bingo et nous avions planifié avoir de la visite mais vous décourager les visiteurs.
Jun 23, 2014
Our children loved the swings, the play structure and the jumping pillow. There was a lot of activities for children, which was awesome. We were also very happy with the location of our site. The number of trees in the park was great to block out some of the noise of other campers. I was very pleased with how clean the campground was- garbage hut, dumping station, washrooms!
Jun 21, 2014
Very friendly staff. Designed with the RV camper's needs in mind. Amazingly good Kid's play area. Good internet access at our site. Makes me want to join KOA, if all their sites are like this!

It is a lovely campground, extremely clean washrooms, and well treed. The weekend we were the was very busy. Next time will be likely during the week.
Jun 20, 2014
You can't MAKE this campground better! This is my "Happy Place." I feel wanted and cared for here!
Jun 20, 2014
Would be a 10 out of 10 if the sites had sewer hook ups !!

Great stay, would have liked to pitch a small tent for kids as our trailer sleeps 2comfortably. Great for our family but not if we need to add on someone.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As a family of 4 people (2 adults and 2 children) and a 20ft travel trailer we are unsure what the concern is. Our trailer sites are not huge so we only allow one sleeping unit per site to ensure they do not become overcrowded and unsafe, particularly when campfires are burning at night.
