Campground Reviews

Jul 13, 2015
Great campground and great people- kids loved it!
Jul 13, 2015
My stay would have been better if I would have been able to burn the wood that I bought for 9 dollars. I did go complain and a guy came to start it but he brought his own wood and once I put on one of the pieces I bought it went out so both nights I sat around a fire pit with no fire. Was also told to be quite when I was talking quietly with one person pretty much told to go to bed.

Stayed with 5 other families for pirate weekend. Great camping, fun activities for kids. Power outage (not hosts fault) last morning, but kids got to do mini putt for free. Love this place!

We highly enjoy coming to this campground. The park is kept very clean. Staff is very friendly. This place is perfect for young kids. Despite the power outage sunday morning the staff handled the situation very well and did their best to keep campers happy.

Great activities for the kids. Love the free coffee also. They also have great activities for kids under age 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The owners were extremely helpful when booking our site with my parents looking for an adjoining site. The campground was extremely well kept and maintained. Our daughter loved the splash pad and pool. We liked the divided play areas for little children and big kids, this made us feel safe for her. Would definetly book again. Keep up the good work!!

The campground and facilities were great, a really fun experience for our 3 1/2 year old, lots of activites.

Great Kid-Centric campground. We had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting again.

Great facility. Excellent friendly staff. Have been coming to this campground for years. Each year improvements are continually being made to make your visit the best it can be.
Jul 13, 2015
The campground has so many great things for the kids and they love it but the owners of this one are very grumpy people, they make it unpleasant!!!
Jul 13, 2015
Tres belle organisation , beaucoup d'activité et le personnel est vraiment bon pour les enfants. Malgré la panne d'électricité de dimanche matin nous avons eu une très belle fin de semaine
Jul 13, 2015
Everything was great except for Sunday morning power outage from 7-1, that we were not advised about that really ruined the end of our stay... Advance warning would have been great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We would have loved some advance notice as well. Hydro One was working on replacing hydro pole on Hwy 2 but they did not advise us that it would affect us 9kms away. With warning we would have had our generators up & running quicker & would not have bailed water out of the pool to flush the toilets.

Expensive; activities (including chip wagon etc) too structured/too many time constraints;

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

So sorry you felt that way. Picking our best patio site is definitely more costly than our regular 30 amp pull thru sites given the premier camping experience. Schedules are provided and adhered to so everyone knows what/when events are happening and how to get the best experience we can offer
Jul 12, 2015
well kept and clean. lots to do for kids. best campground we have ever been to!
Jul 12, 2015
Nous avons adoré notre séjour en famille et avons bien hâte de recommencer l'expérience à nouveau. Les enfants ont adorés les activités, aménagements de jeux,piscine et jeux d'eau. À bientôt.
Jul 12, 2015
This was our third year here. We were extremely happy. The owners and staff are super accomodating and friendly. Very peaceful and fun. Immaculate and totally complete. We will be back for sure. ;-)
Jul 11, 2015
I will never get tired of staying here. The campground is clean, owner Karen is incredibly friendly and her husband and son are super helpful. I so appreciate that quiet hours and other rules are enforced - it's a huge part of what makes camping here so pleasant. That, and Dan's pizza.

Friendly staff and clean facilities. Great for the kids !

We have been going to the Cardinal KOA for the past 5 years. We usually reserve between 10 & 15 sites, including, cabins, cottages, pull-thru and tent sites. We have enjoyed ourselves each year until this past weekend. The manner in which we were treated by the co-owner was disrespectful and due to this treatment, it will be our last visit.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry you feel that way, however your group was disrespectful of our rules assuming they did not apply to you. This ruined the camping experience for the other campers around you that had to listen to you into the wee hours of the morning. Learning good camping etiquette is very important.

Great Time and lots to do for kids. i would love to see some sites with sewer service added! We will definitely return!
Jul 08, 2015
Our grandchildres love it. They made friends this last weekend. It was our second year and there will be a third. Their friends have already booked for next year. We will do it soon. The kids did not want to leave their friends 9 and 6. We loved our stay. It is very clean and friendly.
Jul 08, 2015
kabin was very clean and comfortable, a/c was a bonus with the heat we had! Pool was very clean. The only thing, don't believe the online reservation, it was telling me everything was booked (tent and trailer site) and pushed me to book a kabin. When I got there on Sunday, lots of trailer sites where available during my stay. I was told I should call instead...

It was a good stay. We will be back
Jul 07, 2015
Close to Ottawa with lots for the kids to do. Very clean but a little small and can feel crowded. Great KOA
Jul 06, 2015
Lots for the kids to do and the facilities are clean. Organized games are not very organized though. Oh and the water slide started to deflate and collapse to the side. Thankful for other campers to come and pull the ropes and we evacuated down the slide as quickly as we could with the air coming out it was hard to get to the slide. Scary! No kids allowed on the slide the rest of the visit.
Jul 06, 2015
This KOA is a child's dream come true. So many activities available for the whole family to enjoy together. We have rented a lodge several times now and are always so impressed with the cleanliness and how well stocked it is. I recommend this KOA all the time.
Jul 06, 2015
Washrooms are very clean and park is well maintained. Lots of planned activities and things to do for the kids. Great trip.

A big thank-you to all the staff as they worked non stop to ensure everyone had an amazing experience!
Jul 06, 2015
Great campground! Everything was great, I are hoping to go back next year.
Jul 06, 2015
We enjoyed our stay immensly Very friendly staff Well organize activities Very clean cabins Lots of activities to keep children busy My grand-daughter and her friend did not want to leave We will be back :) Lots to do
Jul 06, 2015
Camp grounds are well maintained. Facilities are kept clean and the hosts are very nice
Jul 06, 2015
Clean, fun, family place to be. They were able to accommodate our requests to be sited next to friends on two separate visits. Their new pizza spot makes great pies rivalling the big city equivalents. Full service tank dumping as you leave on Sunday is an extra special touch!

We stayed in the Cabins with 1/2 bath. It was a wonderful stay for our family. Karen and Pierre were lovely people and great hosts. The only reason I won't give it a 5 is due to the lack of consistent wi-fi and that the holding tank dump is right beside the pool area(a bit stinky).
Jul 06, 2015
It was great!! The kids loved it!!

We loved our stay. The only concern we had was the amount of people in the pool and the rough housing that went one. We had to leave the pool as we have two young kids and they were being knocked around and jumped on top of by a big group of people playing pool games. It was dissappointing as this was initiated by the KOA staff. They need to keep in mind that the pool is for all patrons.

Thank you so much for joining us. Once a year we have a Wet & Wacky weekend. From the hours of 3:30pm to 4:30pm we did host pool games and a water gun fight as part of our themed events. This activity was on the schedule that you received when you checked in. So sorry you were not aware of it.
Jul 06, 2015
-Well maintained and clean -Lots to do for kids and families -Cabins are perfectly laid out -Would be great to have coffee counter...and a way for you guys to make extra $! -Did NOT like the water gun afternoon in the pool! Gave opportunity for older kids to be too aggressive in pool.

Thank you so much for staying with us, we appreciate your business. Once a year we have a Wet & Wacky weekend. During the hours of 3:30pm to 4:30pm we did host games in our pool and a water gun fight as part of the weekend theme. This event was on the activity schedule, so sorry you were unaware.

Was an ok visit. Definitely for the Younger children. My 13 year old was bored. We were surprised by how much everything cost extra.And everything is right in front of you.$3 for the 4 wheel bikes.$5 for the water slide.etc Your kids will be all over you. Nothing included in your stay for almost 65/night we would have expected more. Facilities were clean and staff are friendly. Pool is overcrowded

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have things for teenagers to do,especially if their parents join them. We have volleyball, soccer, baseball, ladder golf, mini putt, our big bouncer, pool, splash pad, chess, board games and books. We also had planned activities -crafts, bingo, ice cream social, hayride and a movie. No arcade!
