-Well maintained and clean -Lots to do for kids and families -Cabins are perfectly laid out -Would be great to have coffee counter...and a way for you guys to make extra $! -Did NOT like the water gun afternoon in the pool! Gave opportunity for older kids to be too aggressive in pool.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for staying with us, we appreciate your business. Once a year we have a Wet & Wacky weekend. During the hours of 3:30pm to 4:30pm we did host games in our pool and a water gun fight as part of the weekend theme. This event was on the activity schedule, so sorry you were unaware.

Was an ok visit. Definitely for the Younger children. My 13 year old was bored. We were surprised by how much everything cost extra.And everything is right in front of you.$3 for the 4 wheel bikes.$5 for the water slide.etc Your kids will be all over you. Nothing included in your stay for almost 65/night we would have expected more. Facilities were clean and staff are friendly. Pool is overcrowded

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have things for teenagers to do,especially if their parents join them. We have volleyball, soccer, baseball, ladder golf, mini putt, our big bouncer, pool, splash pad, chess, board games and books. We also had planned activities -crafts, bingo, ice cream social, hayride and a movie. No arcade!

We've been going to this location for over 5 years as our home base and used to love the location but the rudeness of the owner has forced us and our group of 20 friends (plus kids) to find a different venue. Having Dan treat us like a bunch of 20 year olds when we are all over 40 is brutal and uncalled for! Prices are also not inline with services we receive. Too bad - we used to love this camp.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So unfortunate that you feel that you should not have to abid by the rules and can be disrespectful of other campers. A a small group compared to the other 125 other sites that were trying to quietly enjoy their stay. There are many campgrounds that let people party, we are not that kind of place

Pool is way too crowded!!! "ADULT ONLY" daily swim time is needed. ie 2-3 pm daily. Male owner's disposition is confrontational.Won't be returning, neither will the other 6 families we go with. We have not experienced this type of behaviour at any of the many KOA's that we've stayed at throughout Canada.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately your group was extremely disrespectful of our rules, thinking they did not apply to any of you. Being in a group does not entitle you to preferential treatment. You should be apologizing to those who you keep up half the night with your lack of respect for their quiet enjoyment.

Great hosts, wonderful facilities for families.

We rented a cabin for 2 nights but wish we had booked more nights. Lots of fun for the kids, bouncy pillows, playground and pool looked brand new and were right in our backyard! We will definitely be back next summer.

Drove a long way (4hrs) to have the owner harass us from 10:00pm on even with no music on. 4 adults with children sitting and talking by the fire and he came along 5 times a night to say we were talking to loud. Other than the quiet police it was a great park. Lots of stuff for the kids.

We lived this campground! There were more amenities than we have ever seen. Thank you for the movie nights and wagon rides and the heated pool! Staff were so friendly and helpful!

Great family campground.

We loved our stay at KOA and will definitely go back again.
Jul 02, 2015
We were VERY please with our visit to Cardinal KOA. The owners and staff were great to deal with and the park was very clean. We will be going back year after year and hopefully more.
Jul 02, 2015
We had a great time. The cottages are always clean and so are the grounds. The activities for the kids are fun. We rent a cottage every summer. It is fun for the kids and relaxing for the parents. Thank you for the great services offered.

This was our first time camping with our grandchildren (2 3-year olds). They had a wonderful time and can't wait camp with Nana and Poppa again! We will be back!
Jul 02, 2015
This campground was very clean! The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The only thing that was a little concerning was the lack of supervision by parents of the campground when their children where on the climbers and the bouncy pillows.

Dan and his family are fantastic hosts and work very hard! We absolutely love this KOA and kids start looking forward to camping in March although we don't go until June. There is so much to do and so many laughs to be had. Always one of our favourite places to make memories.

My daughter sprained her ankle early on the Saturday morning and she couldn't walk anymore. We went to see the front desk to see if they could accommodate. They lent us a 2 seater go cart for the day for free... Her friend was able to drive her around an enjoy the activities. Thank you so much for making this a great weekend for all of us.

The kids thanked me for taking them camping. They had a blast. The pool at times was too busy to get a chair. But my son enjoyed the inflated huge slide. And the tie dye shirts were a bit too. 2 tents on a site would be better. And we were placed far from our friends in a trailer. So not ideal for sharing meals. We had to drive our food to their site.

Nous avons tout aimé! Les feux d'artifices étaient excellent! Le site était propre et impeccable! Nous aurions aimé que la glissade d'eau gonflé soit gratuite avec notre séjour.

The kids had so much fun-so much exercise and fresh air-they loved the waterslide and the fireworks!
Jun 29, 2015
Always great as usual

The staff was very friendly, cabins were comfortable and clean. I liked that the staff gave us new towels mid week. The kids loved the bounce pillow!

Fantastic weekend for kids!!!
Jun 29, 2015
We visited the Cardinal KOA once in May and once in June and both times we had a great weekend. The weekend can get pricey when you do the extra activities available. We did mini golf, ice cream, peddle carts, and the water slide, and we probably wouldn't do all of that again. It's hard to say no to a child for the water slide, when they can see it during Bingo. Having three or four kids with y

We had an excellent stay in one of the camping cabins - extremely well maintained and a great family environment.

Jun 29, 2015
This weekend was wonderful!! Our kids love your campground. The jumping pillow was a huge hit! The fireworks on Saturday night was absolutely amazing!! We loved every minute of our stay!
Jun 29, 2015
It's been a pleasure to be there and can't wait for the rest of the year.
Jun 29, 2015
The fireworks were incredible! Better than most municipalities! Well done. The playgrounds and spaces for families to gather are huge and spread all over. The campsites were large and with great tree coverage. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Made us feel like we were old friends. We will definitely be back.
Jun 29, 2015
FAMILY campground!!! Lost our kids for the weekend, lots of activity and great clean place. Will come back!!!

Exceptional staff, site and amenities!
Jun 29, 2015
Amazing, wonderful, the best ! Can't wait to come back
Jun 29, 2015
Remarkable transformation at Cardinal since we last stayed many years ago. Pool and splash pad area are outstanding. Entire camp is spotless and well tended to. Perfect for our family of five. 3 boys aged 2-8 and all had plenty to do and want to go back ASAP. Thanks Cardinal KOA. Perfect retreat.

Peu de services à proximité , absence de piste cyclable, peu d'animation sur camping en basse saison, terrain de baseball mal drainer et entièrement détrempé

Although the amenities are good for kids-the sites are VERY close together which can make it uncomfortable when you don't know your neighbours! As well, there are a few things which used to be included in the (already high) cost, that you now have to pay for - ice cream social is a great example. Lastly-the pool is not large enough given the higher number of campers (smaller sites = more campers)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ice Cream Social has never FREE. We host this activity to raise money to send children with cancer to specialized summer camps. Unfortunately we had been loosing money as some families take ice cream and do not donate or give .25 for the whole family, so sad! Now that we charge the kids benefit.
Jun 27, 2015
Amazing experience! We will be back! Staff were very friendly! We hope the slide will be up next time!
Jun 27, 2015
We had a great time at pool and play areas. Love the clean bathroom trailer and the hair dryer in the shower facility is very helpful. 10pm cutoff time for laundry room a tad early, but we were able to retrieve clothes in the morning.
Jun 27, 2015
Super pour les enfants les terrains son bien et le personnel très accueillant. Nous y retourneront c'est certain
Jun 27, 2015
Camp was very clean
Jun 26, 2015
Was sad that the big slide was down Was looking forward to try it The cabin was very nice The park over all was clean and well maintained
Jun 26, 2015
Your campground is wonderful! Extremely clean with everything anyone needs. The kids absolutely loved our stay! The only thing that we did not appreciate was the night ranger/owner that did his rounds at 11:00. We understand that it is a strictly enforced rule but his lack of kindness made us feel belittled and we had done nothing wrong at that point. We are his guests and we did not feel that way
