Great place

This campground is great for kids. I appreciated all of the activities for the kids to do during our stay-pool, playground, bouncy pillow, craft, movie.... I would have liked a detailed map of the sites on the web to choose from and photo's of the cabins. If there was a way to create privacy between sites that would sway me to return to KOA rather than a provincial park,despite the extra amenitie

Our site map & details of our cabins are available on our website www.cardinalkoa.com- Go to "Campground Overview" & click on the "MAP" tab & the site map comes up. For cabin details go to the "Cabin Accomodation" tab & you will see pictures & the details of our cabins. Not a provincial, more fun!

Love the KOA in Cardinal!!! Always a pleasure to stay here. Very clean and lots of activities for kids. Rules are strongly enforced.....but, that is why this koa is as nice as what it is! Owners and staff take pride in this park, and I can definitely appreciate that!

This is a fabulous campground for families with children. There are activities every weekend for all ages.

Fantastic.... one of our favourite campgrounds.

It's great for the kids, I love it
Jul 29, 2015
It was very good :)

It was my first time at a KOA and it will not be my last. So much for my child to do it was almost overwhelming for her lol. The staff were amazing and helpful. My only regret is that I didn't book my stay longer. The whole family did not want to leave. We will certainly be back to Cardinal next year!

Great campground. Lots for the kids to do. Sites are small but nicely pined so gives lots of shade on those hot summer days. Staff were helpful and friendly. We will be back!

Ultimate vacation get-away for children and the entire family! The Christmas in July event was such a treat - great idea... kudos to all campers who decorated their site.
Jul 29, 2015
Perfect as always! Facilities are spotless and the kids love at that is at their disposal. That's why we come back year after year!

Out of a two night stay, We left a day early (14 hours after we arrived) because the campground wasn't what we expected. We have three four year old boys (triplets) and although it was a family camp ground, it wasn't conducive to the needs of our family. We have been camping with our kids at different locations- provincial parks- and this was the first time I did not enjoy myself.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay. You should have come into the office and let us know you what you were unhappy about so we could have tried to help. Without knowing the issue we are unable to address your concern.

Great hospitality, substituted events when the weather didn't cooperate. Very clean facility. Answered my questions via email before my visit. Pizza quality slipped a bit from our previous visit. We really appreciate the pump out service when leaving on Sunday!! Thank you!

This place is fantastic... my kids had a blast and were mad at me for packing up and going after our trip was over... hehehe Awesome kind staff, clean facilities, well organized... can't say enough good stuff about this place and its people
Jul 27, 2015
It was lovely as always. Everytime we go you have added something new. We have gone about 6yrs in a row now and just love it. Will be back again next year😃
Jul 27, 2015
Great camping for young families. Condo style camping. We wanted more space and privacy and to be able to stay up around the camp fire past 11pm. Will not be back until we have grand children and all they want to do it play and not enjoy the Canadian outdoors. Thanks

Such a great campground. Fantastic for families. Even though our children are now adults, we truly enjoyed this KOA. Would definitively return.

Awesome visit
Jul 27, 2015
It was a small KOA, but with all the amenities of the larger ones. The owners and staff were very friendly and involved with most activities. The Christmas supper was great. My kids spent most of their time on the jumping pillow, in the pool and on the inflatable water slide. The campground was very clean and well maintained. There was also a small chipstand and pizza place on site.

Can't say enough good things about this campground. Our first time there and we'll be booking more time there very shortly. Pool is awesome, playground looks brand new. Loved the chip wagon fries and the pizza. By far our favourite KOA so far.

Amazing place, amazing staff, amazing time!

Another fantastic time at Cardinal KOA. Perfect campground for all ages, especially young families. Could not ask any better than this.

Thi camping was a great discovery for us. We'll return for sure with the extended family
Jul 27, 2015
The campsites are clean and lots for the kids to do. However the parents (Adults) can only whisper and not enjoy the campfire after 11.00 The owner/manager has no personality. We were told to keep it quiet which we did as there were no complaints from other campers.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our rules are enforced and apply to everyone. It is unfortunate that the noise rule is not the only rule you did not get. Too many people on the site,putting up an extra tent and being rude to our staff, all things that are not permitted at this family campground.
Jul 26, 2015
Great camprounds. Clean, friendly staff. Very family oriented which is exactly what we were looking for! Te only bad part is that we had to leave. Definetely going again!

Well kept campground with helpful, friendly staff. Lots for the kids to do and relaxed atmosphere.
Jul 26, 2015
It is a lovely clean campsite, with people working all the time to maintain it to the max. It is also a great place for children to play safely.
Jul 26, 2015
Un vrai oasis pour les enfants... avec tous ces jeux.
Jul 26, 2015
We have only recently resumed camping after a prolonged absence, and we were very fortunate to choose the Cardinal KOA. It is the cleanest campground I have ever been to and has the most accommodating, friendly owners and staff I have encountered in over 45 years. Dan and his staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome, despite his concern about my use of the pedal car. Good job!
Jul 26, 2015
Incredible amenities. Spotless showers and restrooms. Plenty of activities for toddlers to school aged kids. Hosts were very accommodating, and friendly.
Jul 26, 2015
Great sites, kids friendly. Clean. Friendly staff!
Jul 26, 2015
Superbe endroit! Très propre, tranquille et rempli d'activités pour les enfants. On y retournera assurément.
Jul 26, 2015
The hospitality was fantastic! We were there on our own for two days and then came back the evening that we checked out for a two day retreat with the NCR-MFRC. The entire experience was amazing and we can not wait to go back in 3 weeks!
Jul 26, 2015
Great

Nothing for 12 to 15 year old to do

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

You could have joined them at the pool, big bouncer, one on one court, hayride, peddle bikes, waterslide, mini-putt, campfire, giant chess set, movies, volleyball court, crafts and games, free internet and much more. We also have a lending library, board games and a whole bunch of movies. Bored??

We had a great time. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The campsite was extremely taken care of and well kept. So many activities to keep the kids busy. We were impressed with it all. We will definitely be booking with KOA again!!!
