We stayed in the tent cabins and stayed there last year as well. We really enjoyed ourselves. It was a great "camping" experience!

Tout d'abord le négatif: J'aurais donné 5 étoiles si...Le camping devrait offrir le service de vidage de l'eau grise gratuitement a chaque 2 jours pour ceux qui y reste plus longtemps que la fin de semaine. Puis le positif: Beau petit camping très propre plein de belles activitées pour les enfants. Beaucoup de structures de jeux et de parcs pour les enfants et une piscine assez bien chauffé.

This is the first time we stayed for longer than a weekend and we enjoyed it. We will be back again for next year's camping season.

Great, ( Ideal for our grandchildren)

Le seul problème c'est que tu peux pas mettre une tente sur un site si tu as une roulotte. Mais les visiteurs paie 25$ chacun pour passer la journée et dormir. Le propriétaire nous a averti de enlever la tente. Nous étions plusieurs pour la fin semaine. Je veut félicité les emplois pour la propreté.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our top four rules we ask everyone to abide by: 1) quiet hours 11pm to 8am 2)do not tie anything to the trees 3) one camping unit and one vehicle per site 4) reduce re-use & recycle. You had a trailer, tent and tree tent up, go figure.

Camp ground is wonderfull for children however the interaction with the owner Dan was rude and belittling over a rule of the no clothes line on the tree. It's very apparent that rules only apply to non seasonal guest.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our four most important rules are read to every camper when they register regardless of how many times they are here: 1) quiet hours 11pm-8am, 2) don't tie anything to the trees 3) one camping unit and vehicle per site 4)reduce, reuse and recycle. Our Seasonals have an 8 page contract, no comparison

Arriving at about 10 pm, there were no lights on in the entrance area, no sign saying what to do if you arrived late, no sensor system to tell the owner that someone was there. We called from our cell phone but got an answering maching saying to leave a message. We were not showed to a spot - drove into the given spot the wrong direction.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The owners' trailer faces the driveway. As a result whenever campers arrive after the office is closed we see them enter and meet them at the gate. You were greeted and directed to your site, unfortunately in your haste to get to your spot you may not have fully understood the driving instructions.

We had a wonderful stay with your campground and booked another two weeks already for 2014. Our son Kalem who is Autistic had every need met PLUS SOME! it was perfect (other then no coffee made in late afternoons) everything else was wonderful. Thank you for such a great experience for our boys. The Payments.

This was my first time camping with 3 children and a tent. Glad that this camp was recommended to us. Staff were friendly and informative. Activities were well received by all children. Great Job and definiately would recommend to friends and family with children.

What an incredible family camp ground. Lots to do. Children happy. Staff incredibly kind and helpful. We travelled 584 km to go to this specific one because we heard such great things! Charmaine Graham

This was our first time at a KOA but will not be our last. The whole family loved it. Thanks!

Ratings would have higher as it is a great campground. Unfortunately, the owner treats it as a concentration camp. Instead of smiling and making sure everyone is enjoying themselves, he is constantly searching for violations. I realize this is necessary to successfully run a business, but a friendly reminder to rule breakers goes a lot further than barking orders and constantly scowling.
Aug 22, 2013
Fantastic! My 4 and 6 year olds *loved* all the fun things to do, and so did I! We stayed in a cabin with a 1/2 bath, it was heaven - not to mention spotless and incredibly well taken care of. We had a great time and we've already recommended it to others!
Aug 22, 2013
We had an amazing time. Can't wait to go back.

What fun for families with children. The man driving the hay ride wagon was great...made it fun for all, including us spectators.
Aug 22, 2013
The owner ran a backhoe most of the afternoon and cut down a tree without any safety equipment. This ruined our visit. The noise was terrible yet minutes after 11 pm we were told to be quiet while sitting around our fire with the kids. The owner was a nut that picked at everything. The set up was good for kids with the pool and equipment but not a friendly place. That was our last trip there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was also a great set up for all of your unregistered guests who kept popping in as you only live down the street.

Stayed in one of the super clean cabins. Great for this KOA to provide linens and a small TV screen in case of bad weather for the kids. Affordable price and lots to do for the kids. We are considering holding a large family reunion renting several cabins together in 2014.
Aug 21, 2013
Always have fun and there is so much to do for the kids.

Nous avons adoré notre séjour. Les enfants ont été comblés avec toutes les activités sans oublier la crème glacée du samedi. C'est propre et un personnel accueillant. Merci et nous reviendrons l'an prochain

Beau camping tres propre! Les employé son tres gentil et il y avais des tours de ponny pour les enfant. Il a eu de la creme glacé gratuite de toute sorte avec garniture pour tous. A la sortie le propriétaire nous a vidangé notre roulotte sans même que j'ai a touché a quoi que ce soit. Il est tres gentil! Les enfant ont bien aimé les structure de jeu,les jumping pillow et le tour de tracteur.

We had a great time. The cabin was so nice - very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The campground amenities are wonderful and everything is so well maintained. I would recommend this campground to anyone.

It's the best KOA in Ontario and Quebec!
Aug 20, 2013
All KOA people very friendly and helpful. Very clean, nice sites, lots of room. Good location, easy to get to. Lots to do. Fun activities planned. Quiet time from 11 pm to 8am very nice. Excellent stay. Definitely would go again.
Aug 20, 2013
We stayed one night. The site and facilities were clean. The pool is NOT an Olympic size pool but it was refreshing after a long day's drive. The wrist bands were a bit much. Our GPS couldn't find Pittston Road but we managed to find it. Otherwise we would definitely go back. Enjoy!

Great as always. Clean. Well maintained. Suggestions: outdoor work out area and gem mining station as another local KOA has. And once again. Bracelets are annoying KOA should find an alternative to curb outsiders from coming in instead of expecting paying guests to have to wear badges of payment. KOA staff can monitor the entry of cars or make sure people display their parking slips to be seen

Lots of amenities. Staff helpful and fun.

LOVE the new bathrooms at the back! Safe, clean, very well managed and the kids had an amazing time. Thanks for the free pony rides!!
