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!!!

I was very surprised at how comfortable and well equipped the cabins were. You could tell the host family really enjoys taking pride in their campground.

We stayed recently for two nights in a deluxe cabin. We were happily surprised to find that the cabin was outfitted with everything we needed. Niece and nephew enjoyed all of the activities and are already asking to return next summer. Will be back and will recommend to friends with families.

We had a great time! Lots for our two young boys to do. Our cabin was clean and will definitely return next year.

Only thing to improve is to ensure the fire wood is properly seasoned.

This was our first stay at KOA and it certainly won't be our last! We rented a Deluxe Cabin and were very happy with the accommodations, as well as they helpfulness of the staff. Also, the amenities were perfect for keeping us busy and happy each day.

This was our 3rd year visiting and we love it more each year! We always stay in the cabins and they are incredibly clean and perfect for our family. There is so much for the kids to do at the campground. couldn't ask for more!

We stayed in a deluxe kabin (K10) it was excellent with all that we needed. Kabin was very cozy & bed was also very comfortable. Amenities...couldn't ask for better!

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.


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.

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...

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
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

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).

-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.
Jul 06, 2015
Pool is way too crowded!!! "ADULT ONLY" daily swim time is needed. ie 2-3 pm daily. Male owner's disposition is confrontational.Won't be returning, neither will the other 6 families we go with. We have not experienced this type of behaviour at any of the many KOA's that we've stayed at throughout Canada.


Unfortunately your group was extremely disrespectful of our rules, thinking they did not apply to any of you. Being in a group does not entitle you to preferential treatment. You should be apologizing to those who you keep up half the night with your lack of respect for their quiet enjoyment.

We rented a cabin for 2 nights but wish we had booked more nights. Lots of fun for the kids, bouncy pillows, playground and pool looked brand new and were right in our backyard! We will definitely be back next summer.
Jul 03, 2015
We lived this campground! There were more amenities than we have ever seen. Thank you for the movie nights and wagon rides and the heated pool! Staff were so friendly and helpful!
Jul 02, 2015
We loved our stay at KOA and will definitely go back again.
Jul 02, 2015
We had a great time. The cottages are always clean and so are the grounds. The activities for the kids are fun. We rent a cottage every summer. It is fun for the kids and relaxing for the parents. Thank you for the great services offered.

Dan and his family are fantastic hosts and work very hard! We absolutely love this KOA and kids start looking forward to camping in March although we don't go until June. There is so much to do and so many laughs to be had. Always one of our favourite places to make memories.

The staff was very friendly, cabins were comfortable and clean. I liked that the staff gave us new towels mid week. The kids loved the bounce pillow!
Jun 29, 2015
We had an excellent stay in one of the camping cabins - extremely well maintained and a great family environment.

Courteous, friendly people. Son enjoyed lodge, swimming, golf and pillow. States the best stay ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jun 23, 2015
Entire family loved the place. Deluxe cabin was more than expected with everything included, truly a home away from home. Activities for the kids kept the lil ones busy the entire trip. A great relaxing and safe place to be. Will definitely be back soon!

It poured rain on Friday so we stayed in the cabin watching free movies on the flat screen. Saturday & Sunday it was sunny so we played at the playground (loved the bouncy pillows!!!), swam in the pool, took a hay ride and rode bikes. Oh and ate KOA Sundays from the Sunday Bar. Had a GREAT TIME and we will definitely be back! Beautiful cabins!! with a bbq. Nice touch:-) Becky Brake
