Aug 31, 2015

As always we experienced an exceptional stay at this KOA. The staff were so friendly and helpful and very energetic. Bathrooms were spotless and the grounds were so clean! We will be going back soon!

Always feel welcome when we stay here. This weekend's Rib Cookoff was great!

My family and I was very impressed with our entire experience. The activities for the kids were amazing! The only thing is that during the sleigh ride kids were in their bikes wipping marshmallows at us. This was very concerning for us as my 18 months old and 6 yr would have been seriously hurt. The only other thing was we were woken up twice throughout the night by an RV that was running.

We had a great time. Lots to do with the kids.
Aug 31, 2015
The kids had a ball. So much to do. We'll definitely come back.
Aug 31, 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Such a friendly atmosphere and well organized activities! Looking forward to going back in October for the Spooktacular event!

enjoyed our stay, but certainly tested our pocket book. Over $65 night and still had to pay for the extras. Would recommend an "all inclusive" price. Thanks for a nice time. The kids loved it
Aug 31, 2015
excellent place for kids !!
Aug 31, 2015
Beau coups d'activités pour les enfants et très propre
Aug 31, 2015
The site is VERY well kept. LOTS for kids to do. The small details such as cash back service, delivery of wood to the site made it great. A small army of emoyees tackled the bathrooms and showers to keep them VERY clean.

Had some trouble at the playground with some 10-12 yr old bullies. Sorted it out with them without going to office. Again dogs barking! Everything else was very well done. Maybe I could park in a more quiet spot next time which would make my stay more enjoyable as it was a busy weekend and I was late booking. My fault.

Nice grounds, great installations,clean, love the dog playground, we had the deluxe site because it was the last spot available, enjoyed the swing,patio set and ciment pad.One thing I found exaggerated is that they charge you for the pump out at your site even thought you pay 76$ a night for a 2 service site because they don't have any 3 service site on the campground,and only 1 dumping station!
Aug 30, 2015
Very friendly staff, very clean overall and great facilities for the kids.

KOA Cardinal is a very nice place. From the first day of our camping we were able to see clearly how Dan and Karen take care of people at the camp so that people would enjoy every minute they spend in the camp. Thank you Dan and Karen.

We had a fabulous time! The kids enjoyed all the activities - both parks, the bouncer, pool (although we questioned whether or not it was heated as it was slightly on the chilly side), the Bingo, and renting bikes. The adults liked the clean washrooms, quiet campsite and the warm and friendly staff.

Incredible campground! Extremely clean and family friendly. Highly recommend this destination.
Aug 30, 2015
Very nice, lots of trees, very clean, lots of playground and water features for kids. a good destination campground EXCEPT they have no sewer sites! At $65 a night I expect full hookups. And then on top of that they charge to come around and empty your tank for you! Sounds like a profit component of their original business case!

Took 3 granddaughters for an end of summer camping trip and a great time was had by all....as usual at this campground!!
Aug 29, 2015
Nous avons bien aimé notre séjour à ce camping. Très tranquille, très beau terrain, beau mini-put, les enfants adorent le "giant bouncer"... Seul point moins positif est qu'il n'y a pas d'égout sur aucun terrain. Il y a par contre un bon service de vidange sur le site ainsi qu'un poste de vidange a la sortie du camping. À part ca, c'était super!
Aug 28, 2015
Our stay with you was wonderful! Friendly staff and park was very clean. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
Aug 27, 2015
We were quite disappointed when we arrived to our site as it was very tiny and completely wet from rain so we couldn't use our fire. We had difficulty parking our trailer in a narrow site with trees but thankful that an experienced camper assisted us. Our kids very much enjoyed the amenities like the pool, slide, ice cream, play ground and park.

we have camped there for many years, and after r last stay here it will be r last for my self and family members. re: we had invited some friends to come visit us cause they had just bought a new camper and were looking for places to camp .when they arrived they were not greeted very well and this is what was said to them by the owner we discourage visitors as u can see we dont need them.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are really sorry that your guests did not feel that they should have to pay a fee to visit you. On weekends we are filled to capacity so we have to discourage visitors so our registered campers want to use the facilities they are paying for. We charge 1/2 price during the week.

Frustrated with the 11pm gate closure, if that is the plan then a guard should allow ppl entrance in. Ottawa is a 45min drive, it was difficult to arrive before 11 and then had to walk to our site(in the pouring rain one day).Also, if quiet time is at 11, why are children asked to leave the playground at 8pm?! It should be at the parents discretion I think.Otherwise, enjoyed our stay!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay! Our gates close at 11pm so vehicle traffic does not wake our camping guests who have young children and are sleeping. A guard is not an option for us. Playground closes at 8:00pm as it dangerous to play there after dark & it gives time to settle the kids before bed.

We enjoyed our stay in this quiet location

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you next time you are in the area. Travel safely.

Great spot for kids the big waterslide was a real hit.
Aug 25, 2015
We were disappointed with our site because it was mostly underwater. Usually we are extremely happy with our experience at this campground. I would prefer if we could select our own site when booking, similar to the provincial parks reservation system.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had water on your site, we had a torrential rain the night before you arrived & the ground did not have a chance to absorb it all. You can select a site, when making a reservation online-enter the site you want in the special request box & we will do our best to fill it or get next best.

As always such a great time and great owners and staff. We just booked four more trips for 2016

It's a great place for young families! We will be back again next year.

perfect

We had made a reservation for 4 lots together. It was pleasant and the staff were cordial and helpful. The property was clean. Thanks for a great family vacation.
Aug 24, 2015
Very understanding people and such a great place for the kids. When you can check in at 7h am with a smile... that tells you how will be your stay. Thanks for everything and keep up the good work.
Aug 24, 2015
Huge draw back not having full hookups. Portable sewage emptying was available for a fee but was not effective in emptying our tank properly. Owner was very strict about "quiet" times and very intimidating. Even though we were quietly sitting by the fire talking at 11pm. Have never had this at any other park.

Well run location and a pleasure to stay in. We loved the tall pines of this park. There were great activities for the kids which made everyone happy (parents got to relax).

This is such a wonderful weekend at Cardinal KOA - our children love the Carnival weekend and we are so pleased that the campground offers it for free. What a treat! We keep coming back to this spot time and again because we love the chip truck, the playground and activities for the kids, and the proximity to Ottawa. Thanks for another great weekend!
Aug 24, 2015
Great stay for my family, my brother and his family from Calgary and my parents who joined us. This was our first experience with anyone using the cabins, and it was fantastic. Thank you for accommodating our request. Everyone had great comments about the activities and facilities. This is the third year we have been to this campground since finding it, and we'll definitely return!
Aug 24, 2015
Lots of fun activities for the kids. Very clean and well managed facilities. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
