Enjoyed our stay but thought that the charge for visitors was way to high.We have camped at other KOA's and have never come across this before. the pool was closed, the splash pad was closed so not sure what the high fees were for?

As usual we had a great time. Even in the rain. It was great bring able to celebrate Kozy's birthday. My son had a great time dancing with Kozy. Can't wait to come back.

Another great week at Cardinal KOA. A little quieter, due to time of year, but great personal touch from both the owners, Dan and Karen and their fantastic staff. Our trailer is due for service and we will miss the 3 Halloween weekends, but for sure, we will return next spring. Many thanks, Rick, Mary-Ellen and Bungy

Absolutely one of the nicest KOAs we have ever visited; comments to the contrary are baseless.
Sep 17, 2013
Very friendly staff and Dan, the owner, likes to talk and joke around with campers. The second jumping pillow is a nice surprise. It's for the smaller kids.
Sep 17, 2013
This KOA has a great reputation cause the campground was packed even if it was a cold weekend!

Je vais souvent au Koa Cardinal car je le trouve super beau et très propre et les propriétaire sont très gentils et accueillant tout le personnel est courtois..Je vais surement retourne l'an prochain pour mon début de saison...:)

Great stay as per usual. The staff is wonderful. Dan was great to talk to both nights at the fire pit when he was doing his rounds. We really appreciate the Quiet Hours. Can't wait for next weekend when we camp again. And hopefully get a hay ride. It was missed this weekend but we understand circumstances happen and sometimes things change. See you soon.

An amazing facility! The staff were helpful and friendly, the grounds were impecibly maintained, and our family will absolutely be returning! Some people complain about the cost, but the value for the activities, etc., more than makes up for it! Even the showers (nice and hot by the way) were free!
Sep 16, 2013
Great place to bring your kids! So much for them to do.
Sep 16, 2013
This was our second visit this year and we were lucky to get a corner lot beside the washrooms. As usual, clean and prestine. The staff is so friendly. The kids had a fantastic time and we got to relax while they enjoyed the playground and bouncing pillow. Thank you to each and everyone one of you who make our camping trip so enjoyable.

main washroom needs to upgraded shower cleaning was poor in the mans washroom

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for your comment, we truly appreciate this being brought to our attention. In following up we discovered that our staff was not cleaning the backside of the shower curtains as often as they should be. This has been rectified and is now done on a regular basis. Thank you!

The staff are awesome and the kid-friendly amenities are great. Our son loves Cardinal KOA!

We were there last year in a small cabin and upgraded to a deluxe one this year. This was perfect for our family! See you again next year!!!

Wifi was terrible. And it made no difference where I was located as I even tried next to the main office. Was also disappointed that the firewood purchased was mostly softwood. Campsite itself was very nice and clean

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sometimes there are security settings in your computer that will not allow you onto the wifi unless you remove them, next time do stop into the front office and someone will help you connect. We do sell two kinds of firewood, hard or soft so if you have a preference we are always happy to provide it

We really enjoyed the "chocolate" weekend with the fondue, movie, and other activities. Thank you for another great camping weekend.
Sep 09, 2013
Les sites sont bien entretenus et les gens sont sympatiques. La sélection du film était super, nous avons apprécié regarder Monsters university sous la tente.

A perfect family get away! We enjoyed the Big bouncer! as well as the Ice Cream and chocolate time :) The washroom were perfectly clean and people really nice! The sites where easy to get in and all perfectly leveled! So I will be able to go camp there even with the help of the husband to set me up :) THANKS for a great weekend!
Sep 09, 2013
Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend (my birthday weekend incidentally). The hosts are wonderful, the activities plenty-even for a fall weekend-the chocolate lovers spread was incredible. The grounds are so clean. The deal they have to leave our trailer on site ($5 a night plugged in) when we are returning this coming weekend is a steal! Looking forward to more fall weekends here! :)

It is very difficult to rate a campground when you stay overnight and don't leave your campsite but .. we always like the KOA's and the KOA family.

Quiet, clean, curteous staff!! Would recommend and return ourselves
Sep 07, 2013
We used the camping cabins which were very comfortable.
Sep 04, 2013
The camping owner needs to consider if this is what he wants to do...it doesn't seem as if he's happy managing a camping (attitude problem). Very expansive for 3 days with 2 services...and we have to pay if children want to go in the water slide?!? We liked the ice cream day and the people on the camping site: they made the difference in our stay!
Sep 04, 2013
Dan & Karen continue to do a great job in continuously upgrading the Cardinal KOA. Sites and bathrooms are always spotless. Good range of activities for all ages and we continue to return year after years with our friends (5 families in total)on the Labour Day weekend for that last big hurrah before back to school. The kids love it, the parents love it and lasting memories are made!
Sep 04, 2013
Always friendly staff and willing to accommodate clients as much as possible.
Sep 03, 2013
Another fantastic weekend! Thanks for the fireworks and tie dye just to name a few activities. You guys are awesome :)
Sep 03, 2013
Another perfect weekend at Cardinal staff great cabins clean and comfortable will return again our favourite KOA
Sep 03, 2013
We had a really great time and there was a lot for the children to do during our stay. Some activities were extra but there was so much included that you could still have a great time without paying for the extra activities. Thanks!!
