Very friendly staff, very clean overall and great facilities for the kids.

KOA Cardinal is a very nice place. From the first day of our camping we were able to see clearly how Dan and Karen take care of people at the camp so that people would enjoy every minute they spend in the camp. Thank you Dan and Karen.

We had a fabulous time! The kids enjoyed all the activities - both parks, the bouncer, pool (although we questioned whether or not it was heated as it was slightly on the chilly side), the Bingo, and renting bikes. The adults liked the clean washrooms, quiet campsite and the warm and friendly staff.

Incredible campground! Extremely clean and family friendly. Highly recommend this destination.

Very nice, lots of trees, very clean, lots of playground and water features for kids. a good destination campground EXCEPT they have no sewer sites! At $65 a night I expect full hookups. And then on top of that they charge to come around and empty your tank for you! Sounds like a profit component of their original business case!

Took 3 granddaughters for an end of summer camping trip and a great time was had by all....as usual at this campground!!

Nous avons bien aimé notre séjour à ce camping. Très tranquille, très beau terrain, beau mini-put, les enfants adorent le "giant bouncer"... Seul point moins positif est qu'il n'y a pas d'égout sur aucun terrain. Il y a par contre un bon service de vidange sur le site ainsi qu'un poste de vidange a la sortie du camping. À part ca, c'était super!

We were quite disappointed when we arrived to our site as it was very tiny and completely wet from rain so we couldn't use our fire. We had difficulty parking our trailer in a narrow site with trees but thankful that an experienced camper assisted us. Our kids very much enjoyed the amenities like the pool, slide, ice cream, play ground and park.

we have camped there for many years, and after r last stay here it will be r last for my self and family members. re: we had invited some friends to come visit us cause they had just bought a new camper and were looking for places to camp .when they arrived they were not greeted very well and this is what was said to them by the owner we discourage visitors as u can see we dont need them.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are really sorry that your guests did not feel that they should have to pay a fee to visit you. On weekends we are filled to capacity so we have to discourage visitors so our registered campers want to use the facilities they are paying for. We charge 1/2 price during the week.

Frustrated with the 11pm gate closure, if that is the plan then a guard should allow ppl entrance in. Ottawa is a 45min drive, it was difficult to arrive before 11 and then had to walk to our site(in the pouring rain one day).Also, if quiet time is at 11, why are children asked to leave the playground at 8pm?! It should be at the parents discretion I think.Otherwise, enjoyed our stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay! Our gates close at 11pm so vehicle traffic does not wake our camping guests who have young children and are sleeping. A guard is not an option for us. Playground closes at 8:00pm as it dangerous to play there after dark & it gives time to settle the kids before bed.

We enjoyed our stay in this quiet location

Great spot for kids the big waterslide was a real hit.
Aug 25, 2015
Our kids loved all the activities. They are already talking about coming back next year and staying longer. The campground was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

We were disappointed with our site because it was mostly underwater. Usually we are extremely happy with our experience at this campground. I would prefer if we could select our own site when booking, similar to the provincial parks reservation system.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had water on your site, we had a torrential rain the night before you arrived & the ground did not have a chance to absorb it all. You can select a site, when making a reservation online-enter the site you want in the special request box & we will do our best to fill it or get next best.

We had made a reservation for 4 lots together. It was pleasant and the staff were cordial and helpful. The property was clean. Thanks for a great family vacation.
Aug 24, 2015
Very understanding people and such a great place for the kids. When you can check in at 7h am with a smile... that tells you how will be your stay. Thanks for everything and keep up the good work.

Huge draw back not having full hookups. Portable sewage emptying was available for a fee but was not effective in emptying our tank properly. Owner was very strict about "quiet" times and very intimidating. Even though we were quietly sitting by the fire talking at 11pm. Have never had this at any other park.

Our cabin was very clean and comfortable. This KOA is geared to young families. As my kids are 11 & 12, other than swimming, there was the bouncy pillow and chess board. Other activities cost money. There was also a poor behaved child that screamed and had temper tantrum - spoiled even my quiet time. (not the KOA's fault - just our bad luck I guess.) We will likely not return - sorry :(.
Aug 24, 2015
Our kids had a blast! So much to do, had fun with family and friends. Looking forward to next year !
Aug 24, 2015
they've really thought of everything. this place is like the disney land of camp grounds. will definitely be back.

This is such a wonderful weekend at Cardinal KOA - our children love the Carnival weekend and we are so pleased that the campground offers it for free. What a treat! We keep coming back to this spot time and again because we love the chip truck, the playground and activities for the kids, and the proximity to Ottawa. Thanks for another great weekend!
Aug 24, 2015
Great stay for my family, my brother and his family from Calgary and my parents who joined us. This was our first experience with anyone using the cabins, and it was fantastic. Thank you for accommodating our request. Everyone had great comments about the activities and facilities. This is the third year we have been to this campground since finding it, and we'll definitely return!
Aug 24, 2015

I was great lots for kids staff was knowledgeable and friendly Kids loved pizza but wish chip truck was open more during week

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you liked the pizza!! Dan tested different ingredients for over a year before he was satisfied with what he offers. We all grew tired of eating pizza all winter but the feedback has been very positive so it was worth the effort. Hope to see you back soon.

Wonderful place for the family. This place does everything right and anticipates every need. We stayed in a lodge and it was spotless. Staff works extremely hard and the place is very clean. Children loved it and we will go back again.

Lots of activities for the kids, campground very clean and well managed. Enjoyed our stay.
Aug 23, 2015
I often felt like I was being watched by the owners. So they could catch me in the wrong. A lot of rules.
Aug 23, 2015
We were a family of 5. (2 adults, 16yr old, 5 yr old & 1yr old). We had an excellent time. Stayed in a delux cabin. Very clean all around facilities and lots to do for all age groups. We will definitely be back :)
Aug 23, 2015
We always love to stay at the Cardinal KOA on our way home from PEI. Staff always friendly, campground very clean.. Showers were spotless..We were just sad we were not able to enjoy everything the campground has to offer, as it started to pour rain, half hour after we arrived...looking forward to next year already..
