other than our lot being flooded and having to be moved away from next to the park and pool, the owners always take good care of us and the kids always enjoy coming to this campground for our annual fathers day camping weekend. Thanks again for the wonderful weekend. Maybe see if we can get nice weather the whole weekend next time ;)

Love that this is a very family oriented campground. However, all of the new attractions, cabins and sites have made it too busy. A lot of people means that you will end up with rowdy campers (although they are good at keeping the quiet hours).

As a child I stayed at many KOA campsites. This is our first stay at a KOA with our children. We felt very spoiled!Your staff was absolutely fantastic right from check in to check out. The campground was very clean-the washrooms were absolutely spotless!!! Thank you for the extra programs offered for the kids, especially the bingo and bouncy pillows, pool and the wagon ride! A great stay indeed!

Great place to stay. Staff is so friendly. Some flooding on the grassy area and around fire ring of our site but drained next AM when sun came out. Otherwise, a perfect stay and we're coming back in August :)

Great place, stayed many times and we're already booked for later this summer! Staff is great, courteous and even like to joke around! Would be nice to add some sites with sewage though... Keep up the great work! :)

The site's poor draining conditions made for a soggy stay. Weather can't be changed though. Washroom cleaning times seem to be during peak user times. Will be back.

We had another great weekend at KOA Cardinal. The staff were friendly, sites clean and seem to add something new for the kids each year (new tyke bouncy pillow and play structure this year). We ended up on what appeared to be a buddy site even though we were camping alone. But the neighbours were nice (as usual) so it didn't bother us at all. It'd be nice, however, to know this when booking. Thx!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay. The computer assigns the sites so if you book close to the weekend it will assign a buddy site as they are the last ones booked. If you have a site preference, you can put it in the REQUEST section of the reservation & we will try to give it or the next best if available.

The most wonderful thing about this campground isn't that it's clean and pretty. It is. The best thing is that the people here genuinely care that one is safe and happy. I have never seen people work so very hard!These are people I want to always keep as friends. They are very special.

Had a great stay - kids loved it - wish the sites were a little further apart. We are used to Ontario Provincial Parks more on the tenting and small tent trailer sites.

L'endroit etait propre et bien entretenue.C'est un paradi pour les enfants. Les douches sont gratuite et il y avait des activites gratuite. Domage qu'on doit payer pour la glissade d'eau et le mini golf...

Like always we had a wonderful time. All was great. Thanks to all KOA smiles in Cardinal. See you soon.

Awesome family camping, great place for kids, heated pool, where rules are respected and enforced.

I always always have an amazing time at the KOA in Cardinal/Ottawa South. The owners are amazing and take pride in keeping their campground a family safe campground.

This was our ever first experience camping at a KOA. It was a great experience. The staff that we met or saw were all extremely helpful and friendly. The activities for the kids, over-whelming as we couldn't decide what we wanted to do next. The facilities and grounds were extremely clean. We would definitely come back.
Jun 09, 2014
Awesome! Is the only word for the owners, staff and amenities.

We found the KOA on the internet and after looking at all the pictures we almost thought,"this place is too good to be true." Well to our pleasant surprise, it was BETTER than what we expected. So many activities for the kids, very clean facilities and all the folks that work at the KOA Cardinal were super nice. Would highly recommend to anyone with kids as a great place to camp

If you had kids it is wonderful campgroung to visit. We had stayed at many other KOA campground but this one rates the best as far as accomodating the kids activities. The one negative is the lack of a drain at each site as this is one of the key requirement along with water and electricity.

been going to KOA's for years and this was our 3rd summer at this campground, but were disappointed in the way a worker spoke to us. We feel that this campground does not welcome children older than 12 yrs of age. We will miss camping there, as will will no longer book KOA sites for our family weekends away. Thank you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have rules and when they are not followed we do need to speak with you. You have been here three times and have been told the same rules each time. We allow one sleeping unit on a site, you put up two extra tents. Your son was doing flips on the bouncer, for safety reasons he was told not to.

Every year we take my grandchild to this KOA. Great place for children. We got no TV channels and NO internet. Took them 2 days to get someone to come to look at computer. Very rude person. We were planning to stay another day, but left the next day. Don't need that kind of attitude from anyone, really spoiled the weekend :(

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is unfortunate that you were having such a bad day. First it was the low branches, then the sap from the trees, then no cable (which we don't have and don't profess to have) then no internet because of your computer settings. You asked Saturday at 3pm, said no hurry and someone was there by 7pm.
Jun 08, 2014
Great fun for the kids! After the first hour they were already asking to come back again.
Jun 04, 2014
Excellent staff . The best facilities I have ever stayed at when it comes to KOA. I will be returning again this summer.

This was our first visit to this wonderful campground, our family and friends loved it! We had a group of 6 trailers, they were more than accommodating to fit us all together(much appreciated). Also there was lots to keep the little ones entertained. Nice clean campground/showers/bathrooms, and the staff was very friendly! We will be back again!
