Had an 8 night visit and had an amazing time with our two young children. The staff was incredible,friendly and very hard working. The value for the money was great! Arts and crafts for the kids everyday, movie nights, carnival on the weekend. Tons of things to keep the little ones busy. They loved the hay rides. Ice cream socials every Saturday with pay by donation was yummy. Place is very clean!

We had the best time at this KOA - it is spotless and has so many activities for the kids. The new Toddler jumping pillow was a great addition. My daughter LOVED it! (She was always nervous on the big pillow with the larger kids.) The carnival was so fun and we couldn't believe it was free. Thank you!!

Staff is so friendly. Enough activities to keep kids busy. Campground was full and quiet hour actually respected until 8am - slept in! Bathrooms were spotless all the time-no bugs! Sites are too small but booked with family for part of our week so only had share with strangers 1 day which was a little awkward. Owner is not grumpy, just not smiley man but still nice. We will definitely be back!

Fabulous camp ground. Bathrooms are immaculate. Beautiful pool/splash pad/play structure. The kids loved the blow up cushion! Tons of activities for the kids. The staff is organized and friendly. The owners run a very tight ship and it shows!The only negative, the store needs more things (bread and other basics). We will definitely be back.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful - they went out of their way to help us. Our kids loved the water play area.

Looking forward to returning to this site. Clean and loved the fact that the sites were level! Didn't even have to add wood under the tires.. Dump Station was awesome.. Loved that they had the hose already there to speed up the campers didn't have to dig for your hoses!

It's very unfortunate that my family, friends and I will not be returning to Cardinal KOA. The location and accommodations are fantastic and great for kids, however, one of the owners, Dan, completely ruined our weekend with his unfriendly, rude, power-tripping, and unnecessary attitude. We were a group of 26 adults/kids and we will not return. It is to be noted other staff were friendly - thx Dan

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You forgot to mention that you kept your neighbors up until 3:00am the night before talking and laughing too loud, even though Dan visited your site several times to ask you to be quiet. Guests that abide by the rules are always welcome, guests that won't are asked to leave, your choice.

Really enjoyed this park.. Would definitely visit again.. an adult Hot tub would be amazing but, I really enjoyed this park.. Top of my list for parks to stay at.

We had a great stay here. This is a park that other parks should aspire to be like. It's extremely clean, lots of fun stuff for the kids to do and definitely family oriented. The staff are very helpful and obviously love their jobs. We would definitely recommend this park.

It's a great place for children, safe, clean and fun.

found the entire campground area dark and dismal because of all the tree cover..too much. Great activities for children but also too noisy for non children campers during daytime.
Aug 11, 2013
We loved it all, especially the kids! Thanks :)

Excellent service! Caring crew! Brian is a top notch attraction himself...everyone loves him! Clean park.

We have been going to Cardinal KOA for a number of years now and this year was once again lots of fun. Irene, Bryan, Dan and all of the staff are always going out of their way to make our stay exceptional. With the addition of the water slide, a mini jumping pillow and the World Class mini put it just doesn't get any better. Looking forward to Long week-end October. Thanks Cardinal KOA

It was a great age for my son who is 5 years old. He enjoyed the pool as he was able to touch the bottom all over. My daughter who is 2 years old enjoyed the splash pad. Very clean. Staff very friendly. We will definitely return.

This was out first time at a KOA and we'll be back! The kids had a great time with all the activities and it was incredibly clean! We would love to see a preschool play structure for the little ones, for when the main structure gets busy with bigger kids.

Great place. Brian the old guy is amazing. The owner is a little uptight but his wife makes up for it. The facility's are so clean and very well maintained. I enjoy staying there everytime we go.

This is an amazing campground. The owners and staff are fantastic. They love what they do and it is obvious. They are kind and wonderful. Our children loved the pool, splash pad, park, bouncing pillow and the water slide.

Exceptionally friendly staff!!!! KOA HQ should use your staff members as model. Wi-Fi was poor, but that was a small inconvenience. Thank you for a great stay!

What a great experience. The children loved the park, pool, bouncing pillow, splash pad and fun activities. We loved the service and kindness of the wonderful staff.

Family camping trip. Well organized activities. Horrible smell of sewer dumping about every hour in busiest areas (pool, park). Owner does not appear to enjoy his job, bad mood, uninviting.
