Campground Reviews

Sep 02, 2014
kids had fun .. kinda pricy with extra charges for everything .. WIFI was not very good ... dog park had gaping gaps under the fence that allowed dogs to escape, so really couldn't be used as a dog run at all ! Our site was covered in gooey gum covered pine cones that stuck to everything, including our dogs and vehicles ! The price should be for your whole family - me my wife and 3 children !

Wonderful campground. Great place for families with children 10 years old and under. The staff was fantastic. facilities were clean. Amazing fireworks :). This was our first trip at your location and we can't wait to be back next year.

My family & I have been going to Cardinal KOA for the last week of August for 5 yrs in a row. We will NOT be going back ever again!!! The owners are complete ego-manical power-trippers and enforce their rules without good judgement and/or reason. They do NOT deserve my hard-earned vacation dollars. I will now go elsewhere & encouragefamily & friends to do likewise.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Ah yes, the gentleman that thought our rules did not apply to him and that he should be allowed to blare his radio even after the 10:00pm deadline as noise doesn't travel?? Lots of loud chatter after midnight traveling from tent site to washrooms. Can't be that bad if he came back 5 yrs in a row.

The campground was enjoyable for my children given there were lots of activities to keep them busy. However, I would not return to the Cardinal KOA. They were not accommodating to our personal situation and forced us to take down our second tent. Both tents were small and I am a single mother of two with a friend accompanying us. They need to be more accommodating to the ever changing family.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We only allow one sleeping unit per site. This rule is on our website and is also on our reservation confirmations. You were also specifically told this rule when you registered. It should have come as no surprise that you were asked to take the tent down or move it to a different site.

Excellent. Attention to detail by the staff is impressive. Kabins look brand new when you check in. Fire pit, barbecue and bathroom very clean upon arrival. Staff also does a good job of leaving the campers alone at night time (for camp fire time) whereas other places they harass a bit. Thanks

This is hands down the best family vacation spot ever. I cannot believe how clean the cabins were. We can't wait to come back!

very nice and very clean

Wow! I have never stayed in a cleaner campground! The cabin, the bathroom, the grounds, the play ground and pool were all spotless and very well maintained. Very friendly staff. Highly recommended as a family destination.

The place is updated, clean and the staff are great people. They work hard to make sure you have a very well deserved break from the hustle and bustle of real life. The activities for the kids are great and well planned.

The stay was fine and the campground is well kept, and washrooms clean, the only complaint I would have is the gates being shut at 11pm and having to park outside and walk in. We had been out for the day and have small children to expect people to carry the children into the campsite seems crazy. A coded gate would work much better. Also the lack of sewage hook up for long stays is difficult.

Beautiful campground. Fantastic hospitality. A very nice place to visit.

Too expensive
Aug 26, 2014
Our stay was great, but we were disappointed in the wifi as most of the time it either didn't work or was extremely slow. Other than this issue this is an amazing campground with lots of fun family things to do.

We apologize for the poor internet. We have outgrown our existing equipment, as almost every person now has 1 or 2 electronic devices, including young children. We have purchased a new internet system and are currently installing it, so there should be a big improvement next time you come.

We all had fun and my wife and kids loved the most. I hope to comeback soon.

Great experience. We rented a deluxe cabin and were very positively surprised. Cabin was very clean, lots of features. The playground was awesome. The kids had a blast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.
Aug 25, 2014
Fantastic, Our grandchildren & ourselves had a great time. All activities very well organized and grounds, store, play area, pool were excellent. Site was well maintained and clean which means alot to us.
Aug 25, 2014
Kabin has everything! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable, programming was great for kids as well as amenities! Great for young families.
Aug 25, 2014
Before we left we had already contacted friends and family about how wonderful this KOA is. We have started making plans to return next year. We loved the activities for our kids (ages 6-10) as well as things for younger children too. We also felt that the extra activities to enjoy were affordable (Miniputt, water slide, bike rentals). We found the campground to be clean and the staff friendly.
Aug 25, 2014
Great place to stay. Kids really had a fantastic time, everything from the mini put to the slippery slide to the pool. The weekend was a big success. Thanks.

Our tent was beside the TV blaring a movie from 8-10pm. No way for our daughter to sleep until it was over. She usually falls asleep between 7:30-8pm. It was very hard on her. This was very inconsiderate to all of the families nearby with little children, but our tent was the closest.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We agree that being beside our movie tent, where we host Saturday night movies, is not a very good location if you have small children that go to bed early and we apologize for this. We do have a quiet tent site on the other side of the campground away from the tent, park and playground.
Aug 25, 2014
The campground was a great place for children with lots to do and great amenities. Although the campground was very full and accommodations were tight I was expecting that when coming. It is very obvious that this campground is highly successful and success often goes to peoples head. The owners and staff are missing the most important piece of making any vacationers stay great and that is remembe

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, the gentleman, who did not think that visitor charges should apply to his guests. Who refused to pay for them & then had them enter the campground anyways & was upset when they were asked to either pay or leave.

Absolutely fantastic, as it was last year. We'll definitely be back - everything was wonderful and we had an amazing time!
Aug 24, 2014
Great time with our kids. So much for them to do. We will be back next year.
Aug 24, 2014
Good lots size, nice activities for the kids, clean facilities. A little over zealous on check out time when 35% - 40% of the lots are free.
Aug 23, 2014
We had nothing that we didn't like!!!! Awesome campground and staff!!!! Thank you :)
