Très belle place et très propre. Plein de belles activités pour les enfants. site exceptionnel pour la famille. Seul désagrément est que le site de pompage des eaux usées est a environ 20-25 pieds de la piscine et jeux d'eau pour le dimanche matin à la sortie des campeurs, c'est désagréables les odeurs.

The Cardinal KOA exceeded all expectations we had. The cleanliness, the friendly helpful staff and activities galore for the kids. We had a great stay! Thank you!!!

I have 2 issues with this Kia: 1. Gravel on tent sites, not so great for tents 2. My 9 year old kids were yelled at by a yellow shirt staff member while checking the mini golf course. They were told to "get their butts off the course if they're not playing". Totally uncool, I'm appalled and would not recommend this Koa based on this incident alone, just as my kids said :(

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

These boys had lots of excess energy & were frequently found doing things that tested us. From going into the pool unsupervised to standing on the top of a toilet and rocking it off the bolts to turning on the site water taps to plugging the bucket on the last golf hole. No parental supervision.

Although we only used the camp site as a home base while in the area to visit relatives and friends, we are happy to say that you all deserve an A+ for cleanliness. I heard that you experience some flooding at some of your sites and possibly that was the reason I found our site driveway narrow, uneven and difficult to level the camper. Otherwise great. P.S. your visitor's rates are way above norm.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have purposely set our visitors rate high to try to discourage them from coming. We love to share our camping experience but too many visitors using the facilities ruins the weekend for the other registered campers. We are trying to provide you with the best possible stay so need to limit extras.

I loved your campground and have already recommended to several friends. That was our first time but will be back. The only thing Id say to improve is the temp of your pool. it was a little on the cold side.

This is the best campground in Ottawa, especially for families with children. Activities, pool, playground, wagon ride etc. Something for everyone. Staff is excellent and owners too. Thanks KOA Cardinal for another great camping weekend!

Had a great time at Cardinal KOA. Karen and Dan are wonderful hosts and everyone who works there is very welcoming, especially Brian (the old geezer) who is fabulous. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I absolutely love camping at KOA Cardinal. We discovered this park last summer with our daughter. We have put our name under the seasonal list and we can't wait get a call to be offered a seasonal site.

We had a wonderful stay. The staff were helpful and friendly. The kids had a blast and so did the parents. We'll definately be back soon. Unfortunately we were there too soon in the season for the the blow up slide, just means we'll have to go back ;0) Thanks for a great Father's Day Weekend

The owner takes a lot of pride in his site and you can see it. The site is clean and well cared for and the staff, once again, are friendly and made the weekend enjoyable.

Beau camping..beaucoup d'activités! C'est dommage que lorsque l'on est à la piscine qu'il y ait des odeurs quand on vide les roulottes à la sortie ;(

I liked this campground when I stayed here last year. However, I liked it even BETTER this time. The staff tries hard to please, and I've found that they solve a lot of little problems. They're great, kind, friendly people.

Excellent hardworking folks, very clean facilities. Kids had a blast.

L'accueil est incroyable. Nous sommes toujours accueillis avec un sourire et notre check-in se fait sans problème! Nos enfants adorent toutes les activités. En plus, c'est tranquille car toutes les activités se tiennent loin des terrains.

Great fun even if weather wasn't great. Looking forward to returning soon I hope.

We've been coming to this KOA for about 14 years now. Used to have the kids with us. Now that they've grown up we enjoy watching the other families and pine for grandkids so we can introduce them to camping.

Thanks to Irene,Brian, Dan and Karen. They are wonderful people and we hated to leave. Had grandsons with us and they had a great time. Campground is very tidy, other guests friendly. Way to go Cardinal - George and I will be back. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend in spite of the rain.

Friendly staff, clean facilities and lots for our grandchildren to do, they love it there!

wet weekend lots of flooding
Jun 11, 2013
We had a family reunion and because of the rain they called one in our group to cancel so that they could moved some people that were there to other campsite. I think that they could have called other instead of breaking up our family reunion. Also the owner seem always mad maybe he could smile a bit.The site were nice and other people also nice. Maybe will be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As a courtesy to our campers anyone that booked a site that was flooding was contacted and given a full refund of their deposit so they would not have an unpleasant weekend. Campers were given the option to come or not, the decision was theirs not to.

Despite the rain we had a great time. Swam in the warm pool, jumped our brains out on the jumping pillow, got a round of mini putt in. The events were wonderful, had icecream at the social, garage sale and hayride. There was so much to do with do with the kids. Only sad that most of the summer was already booked!

We love all the trees which give shade and a feeling of privacy. The campground is attractive and CLEAN, and we were impressed with the friendly service, lovely pool, mini golf, large lending library, recycling.

Great family campground! Lots of things to keep my 3 year old busy and entertained. She loved the play structure and the water park. Dog park is great feature as well. Gave our dog some time to stretch her legs off her leash. Only downfall is the "tent sites" are very small and open. You can walk out of your tent and be touching the tent trailer on the next site. Otherwise a great campground.
