Hi it was the best camping weekend. We had our 3 year old grandaughter with us and it was her first time camping. She loved it. There was so much for her to do and see. Thank you for the perfect weekend. Joanne. We will be back for sure.

We stayed this past weekend with our 5 kids aged 1 1/2-12 years old. They had so much fun and there was so much to do, they were constantly on the move. The kid friendly activities were exactly what we were looking for for our family vacation. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend it to all our friends and family!

A few seasonal campers were a little nosy for our liking...

We stayed here for a weekend, our first experience with KOA. The staff were amazing and the kids were thoroughly entertained all weekend. The owner could be seen working everywhere, in the chip stand, Pizza Hut, at the pool, giving hayrides....he deserves a lot of credit! The kids loved the ice cream social, jumping pillow, mini putt and huge waterslide! We will definitely be back!

Owners were not friendly from the moment we arrived and didn't improve during our stay. The facilities were poor and very little for childrens programs. Everytime we turned around we were being asked to support kids camps. We've stayed at other KOA's and really enjoyed them .... this one we didn't and won't ever book again!

This was a great family destination. Lots of activities for the kids and the adults also enjoyed their time. It was nice letting the kids run free and feel safe doing so.

Fire wood too pricey. Loved everything else !
Aug 06, 2015
Wow! What a nice place! Owners are really friendly and nice people. It was worth every penny and more!

Great for kids. Make sure you get to pick your camp site - ours was next to the bathrooms, which seemed convenient until they decided to pump out the septic system during the breakfast hour.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for this inconvenience as it is a very smelly job. We do ask all the trades we deal with not to come during meal hours or too early in the morning but we are subject to their schedules and availability which is beyond our control. We are sorry a 10 minute smell ruined your whole stay.

Our family camped for 4 nights in July and had a fantastic time. Our girls (6 & 8), had a lot of fun in the playground and pool and attending movie night. The staff were very nice and helpful. Everything is kept nice and clean. We will be coming back for sure!!!

Fantastic Time!!!!

so clean and well run..loved it!

Make sure you follow ALL rules or they will never let you return. even if you have been going for years and never broke a rule.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately you did break the rules this time. Drunk outside at 2:30am with your drunken (unregistered) friends is a definite no, no here at Cardinal. Given you are very aware of all of our rules there is no excuse for breaking them to this degree. Hopefully you have learned a valuable lesson.

Great campground, great activities for the kids!!!

We had such a lovely time, this campground is perfect for families of young children. Thank you!
Aug 04, 2015
Our (young) kids absolutely loved it. There was plenty for them to do, which makes it more fun for all of us! It is our favourite campsite this summer!!
Aug 04, 2015
Excellent campground and tons of activities for the kids.
Aug 04, 2015
This is a top notch KOA that we love going back to again and again. The owners are amazing and the the staff is great and super friendly. Thank you for another great stay
Aug 04, 2015
Events ,extremely well organized.very clean.
Aug 04, 2015
Very happy with the campsite. Great for families with young children, lots of activities. My only disappointment is that my daughter and a friend wanted to put up a small 2 person tent behind out tent. They were told they couldn`t. Our site only had 1 tent. When other visitors can have a huge trailer/camper AND a large dining shelter, I don`t see what harm a 6x5 tent would be.

We had a wonderful long weekend weekend at Cardinal. This koa extremely well run with strong focus on family, cleanliness, and hospitality. No question we will be back.
Aug 04, 2015
Amazing stay. Kids had a great time with the planned activities. Will come again

This was our first stay at a KOA and it far exceeded our expectations . The staff was extremely friendly , all the activities were well planned and stress free. The atmosphere was safe and welcoming for children of all ages . We highly recommend !
Aug 04, 2015
As always we had an amazing time. Very clean and very quiet campground. There are lots of kids running and playing during the day but evening comes and it is nice a quiet. Sleeping is amazing and if loudness occurs you know that Karen and Dan will take care of it.
Aug 04, 2015
Folks who run this campground are so friendly and helpful our stay was fantastic.
Aug 04, 2015
We have been coming for a few years now and the kids love it! We have recommended it to friends who have already visited KOA Cardinal as a result and say they will be back. At first, it may feel a little more expensive than other parks to camp at, but we have personally seen tise kampground improve year after year with new things being added for the kids!
Aug 04, 2015
Amazing campground. Very clean, we'll run, tons of activities for all ages, especially young families. Super friendly and accommodating hosts Dan and Karen and great staff. Long weekend pot luck and one of the hosts, Dan, made a fabulous lasagna for the participating campers. Highly recommended you try this campground. You will not be disappointed.
Aug 04, 2015
The park is very nice and great for kids but if you like to sit by the fire after the kids are in bed make sure you don't speak as you will be too loud for their liking.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

From the gentleman that was still so drunk in the morning that he could not get out of bed to answer the door so we could ask him to leave. What a sad impression you made on your family, friends and the other campers around your site.
