Love it there, kids never want to leave.

First time at this KOA with multiple families and had a blast! kids loved the facility and all the activities,asked when going back. Staff was fantastic. The only thing I think needs improving is the pool was very murky to the point where kids could not be seen under water and could be dangerous when others are jumping in & for keeping an eye on little swimmers.

Excellent amenities and cabins. Nice quiet campground in the evenings. Lots for kids to do.

My sister came in for the 150 Canada Day celebration with her American friends. They were very impressed with the lodge and plan to come back when they are in the area again. My husband and I like this KOA, and plan on returning. I would still like to reimburse them for the damages I did to their newly planted grass. My thoughtlessness was inexcusable.

We had a great time and would definitely go back again.

We stayed with four of our grandchildren in a cabin. Plenty of room for everyone. Tons of stuff to do with the kids. The place, is clean, safe and everyone is very friendly. We hope to go back soon.

Cabin was very clean. Front desk staff wasn't very friendly but we were very happy with the splash pad and all amenities for kids! Free DVD rental was appreciated. I will be back.

We camp at KOA every Canada Day long weekend, we started with just our family of 4 and now we are 5+ families that enjoy this great place together year after year. We always stay in the Cabins. So clean and comfortable, just about everything we need is already there for us. So much for kids to do, we never hear them complain they're board. Can't ask for a nicer family or staff to serve you.

This campground is clean, pool warm, excellent place for kids and the people who work there are so very nice. Unfortunately we had two cabin sites and they were both flooded for our stay, although it was drained once, fires were impossible and we were in 4-6" of water unloading and loading. Not much could be done... over all a very nice place to stay. AMAZING fireworks on Canada Day!


Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your understanding with the rain, it was beyond our control and we tried our best to help everyone deal with the water. So glad you liked the fireworks, Phil our son loves to do this show. Hope to see you again soon.

We stayed in a beautiful and comfy deluxe Lodge and it exceeded our expectations. The campground was very clean and well maintained, the staff was very friendly, and the owners Dan and Karen could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. We hope we can return soon. It is an excellent family friendly fun getaway!

Fantastic stay! My son did not want to go home; we will be back.

Our kids had a total blast. No problem putting them to bed at night, they were zombies by 8 pm. The mining center is a great idea, the kids had something to bring home with them for keep sake. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the grounds were kept spotless along with the washrooms. Overall a great place and will definitely be back.

Pool was great and cabin nice although didn't realize we wouldn't be able to cook in it. Also the cabin we reserved and put deposit on was given to someone else so we had to take different cabin. We were given a $45 discount to compensate but still feel the other people should have been the ones that had to move to other cabin. Besides that, it was pleasant weekend.


We did recognize the mistake and took action to correct it. The cabin you stayed in was exactly the same as the one you booked just two spaces over, so your experience would have been the same. The other guests were already settled into the cabin when the error was discovered. Best solution taken.

Always an active campground. Staff is delightful to deal with!

Awesome owners and staff! Beautiful wooded setting and soooooo much fun for kids. Can't wait to return. Loved their passion for KOA Care Camps too!

Great! We visit this KOA every Victoria Day weekend. Always appreciate the family oriented campground resort. Always super clean cabins. Great fun for kids. Convenience store always has the items I forget to bring. Love the staff. Thanks!!

Kids had a blast. Excellent service. Staying in deluxe cabin was comfortable and convenient. We'll be back.

Stayed in a log cabin which was clean and comfortable and very enjoyable. Only point to note is that there is no hanging space for clothes other than a couple of hooks. Will definitely consider booking again.

Another absolutely perfect long weekend at Cardinal KOA. The Halloween Thanksgiving is one of our favorite times of year. Thanks so much! Karyn & Tom Walker

We love staying in the cabins, wish there was discounts for non-peak season stays though, might get us out more. Owners are very hard working and it shows.


Glad you enjoyed the cabins. We do offer non-peak season rates from Sundays to Thursdays in September and October. Fridays and Saturdays are busy (peak days) and as such we are able to offer additional fun like our pumpkin walk and haunted house. These would not be possible at low season rates.

An improvement would be the ability to pick your cabin or campsite online


We agree, we have asked KOA Corporate to add this to future software updates, hopefully it will happen in the near future. In the interim if there is a specific site/cabin you would like, you can request it in the Special Remarks section of the reservation, and we will do our best to fill it.

We came in late and they were most accommodating. We were even upgraded so that the park could keep us away from some less-than-quiet teenagers (and we were just looking for a place to lay down our tired heads!). Great people. Great place.


We are glad you liked the upgrade from a Rustic to Deluxe cabin. We were hosting a Family Services group when you arrived. They were great guests, low maintenance and although some being teens we were worried about noise, we did not have any issues with them before or during quiet times.

We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the facilities and cabin. The mini fridge and heater were an unexpected bonus.
Sep 25, 2016
Only complaint I have was the dogs barking on the Friday night and early Saturday morning The owners were more concerned with people out of there trailers at 11 pm than talking to the campers with loud dogs keeping us up most of the night
Sep 20, 2016
Not overly impressed with our stay, probably won't camp there again
Sep 19, 2016
We book the cabins at the Cardinal KOA multiple times a year and the kids have an absolute blast every single time! There are so many activities for them as well!
Sep 19, 2016
The staff were very friendly and there were a lot of activities for the kids!
