The only negative about our latest stay was a loose dog barking at people and the owners did not care...for someone who does not like dogs, it makes the stay a little uneasy...that's all...

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.

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.

We stayed in a lodge cabin and it was fully equipped and extremely clean. There was a mild sewage smell one morning and the staff was quick to take care of it. The staff were friendly. It's really fun for the children with the splash pad/pool, play structure and big bounce. The large inflatable water slide was a great hit. All in all we had a great time!! Thanks for the memories!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We found the cabin and the whole site area well kept and clean! We loved the craft time, as well as the play structure and jumping mats; and of course, the pool was great too. That is where we spent most of our time when we were on site. Next year we will have to try out the big water slide, and the mini-putt!

We had a great time!! We stayed in the kabins and they were close enough to the play areas that we were able to cook dinner outside and be able to watch the kids play. The kids had so much to do that we didn't have to leave other than going to the grocery store!!

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.

Fantastic!!!

Clean, well kept. Lots of fun activities for kids.

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.
Jul 18, 2015
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.
Jul 16, 2015
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.
Jul 16, 2015
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!
Jul 15, 2015
excellent weekend
Jul 14, 2015
We recommend this spot to all our friends and families who have kids! We had an awesome stay and will definately be booking next year!
Jul 14, 2015
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!
Jul 13, 2015
Great activities for the kids. Love the free coffee also. They also have great activities for kids under age 5
Jul 12, 2015
This was our third year here. We were extremely happy. The owners and staff are super accomodating and friendly. Very peaceful and fun. Immaculate and totally complete. We will be back for sure. ;-)

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.
Jul 08, 2015
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...
Jul 06, 2015
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
Jul 06, 2015
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).
Jul 06, 2015
-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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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.
Jul 04, 2015
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.
