Campground Reviews

Jul 15, 2013
The stay was great, fun filled and the staff was very kind and out going. The facility was super clean and well kept. A suggestion would be to have a family wash room facility that is handycap/wheelchair accesible. See you next time! Thank you.

Facility was ok. 3 things would make it better. 1. Sewer hook-up, 2. Roads are narrow which can cause some tricky maneuvering with large trailers, 3. We felt confined to our trailer once 11pm. Even simple conversation around the fire seemed to be discouraged. However the pool was great! Jungle gym and bouncy pillow was fun. The service was great too!

Nous avons apprécié la fin de semaine au KOA. Notre fille a adoré la structure de jeu, la piscine, les vélos, le "ice cream social" et le "jumping pillow". Les terrains sont près l'un de l'autre donc parfait pour une rencontre avec plusieurs amis. Une amie a louer un chalet, il était très propre, super beau et bien divisé. Nous reviendrons sûrement une autre fois.

Our first time camping with our trailer. Had a great time. Friendly staff and guess. We loves the pool area the most. We will be back for sure.

Friendly staff, fun activities, and great amenities, but site was very uneven and impossible to peg a tent in the gravel.

very good place for small children. Bit pricey but lots of things to do for kids. Didn't think we should have to pay for extra activities like the slide and mini-put. They should be included in campground rate. But overall very good. Clean and friendly.

The campground is great for families. It has a variety of activities for all ages. Its is well maintained and staff are very friendly!

Great for the kids and adults.Great activities planned and our kids loved the "old geezer" who went on the treasure hunt. Clean area, especially the bathrooms. We will be back.

Everything about this campground is great kid wise very kid friendly but too many strict rules. Quiet time is 11pm which is reasonable and the crew go to every site to warn everyone. ok. But we were sitting by our campfire talking at a normal level and were told to whisper only as if we did not respect the rules we would be asked to pack up and leave. Too strict to enjoy adult time at the fire

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As a family focused campground campers come here because we enforce the rules & quiet hours. Sometimes campers may not understand that our sites are close together so any sounds, when elevated from too much alcohol, carry very far. Other campers do not want loud talking & laughing waking their kids

Lots of activities for the kids. Super friendly staff! BUT the sites are way too close together and I really wish the pool opened earlier.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your suggestions. We do take time each morning to ensure that the pool,pool deck and pool chairs are properly cleaned and the pool chemicals are balanced for safe use by our campers during the day. As a result the pool opens daily at 10:00am and remains open until dark.

We had a wonderful family holiday at KOA Cardinal. They have friendly staff and there is always something fun for children to do. We will definitely return to this campground. We rented a deluxe cottage. It was clean and perfect for our family.

WE had a great stay. We visited this KOA a number of years ago (6 or 7) and was pleased with the changes that have taken place since. I would recommend and we will return again soon.

We had a great time! When the children are happy... so are the parents! Extra clean place and very friendly people. We will be back.

Friendly staff, very clean facilities, and well maintained property. Keep everything locked up, though, we had money taken from our trailer and two of our towels stolen right from the pool deck.

You did mention that your daughter had some new campground friends over to play in the trailer while you were busy. Campers should always be cautious of who they let in their units. Not all children have been taught values, so unless you know the children well it is best to have them play outside.

Very helpful and friendly staff. There was lots of fun things for the kids to do, which made our trip very enjoyable too.

This KOA is first class all the way. The owners, Dan and Karen are beautiful people who go out of their way for all campers, along with a fabulous staff. We can't say enough to explain how much we always truly enjoy our stay at this KOA. We highly recommend it to all campers, with or without kids. Absolutely fantastic KOA.
Jul 12, 2013
Always a great time at the Cardinal KOA. The kids love all the activities and we can't wait to go back!

we had a great time, but like other reviews, the owners didn't make you feel at home! They would walk passed & never ask how things were ! My son got SCREAMED at for accidentally knocking over the large chess pieces, I didn't say anything as I was already told by fellow campers, if you challenge "them" they automatically call police(didnt want that for my kids) Fun but not friendly !

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do take children to task if they are not obeying the rules or are damaging our property. If a child has to be spoken to several times for the same reason then they may only understand it if we raise our voices. One adult to supervise three over active, misbehaving boys may not be sufficient.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE this location. It is so much fun for the kids. Everything is impeccably clean. The staff & owners were fantastic. Quiet time is highly enforced, which is great for young families. Highly recommend this KOA for the perfect mini getaway.

Our stay was amazing!! We stayed in a deluxe cabin and it had everything and more that we could have wanted and it was so clean. The grounds were great,the pool was so inviting and the staff were very friendly. We can't wait to come back again in August!!

As always excellent time! Good time had by all! Tried to book again for this weekend coming but all sold out! See you guys soon! Michelle MacRae

We came with a group of families with their children and everyone had a fantastic time. Water Wars weekend was fun for everyone, especially the blow up water slide. We are booked again for next year!!
Jul 08, 2013
The kids had a blast at this KOA. There was plenty for them to do and not enough time to do it in. The lady that owned the KOA was not very friendly and quite bold in speaking to the kids, but the rest of the staff was friendly and great to deal with. The sites are very close together, but we weren't there often. Also, they have a ONE sleeping tent rule and that made sleeping arrangments tight.
Jul 08, 2013
It was a fun weekend, lots of water :) Next time I think we will come during the week as it is so busy on a weekend, but still fun none the less.
Jul 08, 2013
An absolutely great spot for kids and having a person helping people dump on the way out really expedited things. Rates are way too high, there are too many rules and the charge for someone to come and visit for a short time is way out of line.
Jul 08, 2013
Camp staff Ashley was amazing! She was so helpful and the activity she did with the kids was a lot of fun!
Jul 08, 2013
Kids had a great time with all of the great attractions and activities!
