Not overly impressed with the whole experience. Camping is much better with a beach!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately it's hard to have a beach when we are in the middle of Ontario farmland. Better research prior to booking would help to ensure where you are going suits your camping style.

Tout d'abord le négatif: J'aurais donné 5 étoiles si...Le camping devrait offrir le service de vidage de l'eau grise gratuitement a chaque 2 jours pour ceux qui y reste plus longtemps que la fin de semaine. Puis le positif: Beau petit camping très propre plein de belles activitées pour les enfants. Beaucoup de structures de jeux et de parcs pour les enfants et une piscine assez bien chauffé.

This is the first time we stayed for longer than a weekend and we enjoyed it. We will be back again for next year's camping season.

Great, ( Ideal for our grandchildren)

Le seul problème c'est que tu peux pas mettre une tente sur un site si tu as une roulotte. Mais les visiteurs paie 25$ chacun pour passer la journée et dormir. Le propriétaire nous a averti de enlever la tente. Nous étions plusieurs pour la fin semaine. Je veut félicité les emplois pour la propreté.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our top four rules we ask everyone to abide by: 1) quiet hours 11pm to 8am 2)do not tie anything to the trees 3) one camping unit and one vehicle per site 4) reduce re-use & recycle. You had a trailer, tent and tree tent up, go figure.

Camp ground is wonderfull for children however the interaction with the owner Dan was rude and belittling over a rule of the no clothes line on the tree. It's very apparent that rules only apply to non seasonal guest.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our four most important rules are read to every camper when they register regardless of how many times they are here: 1) quiet hours 11pm-8am, 2) don't tie anything to the trees 3) one camping unit and vehicle per site 4)reduce, reuse and recycle. Our Seasonals have an 8 page contract, no comparison

Arriving at about 10 pm, there were no lights on in the entrance area, no sign saying what to do if you arrived late, no sensor system to tell the owner that someone was there. We called from our cell phone but got an answering maching saying to leave a message. We were not showed to a spot - drove into the given spot the wrong direction.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The owners' trailer faces the driveway. As a result whenever campers arrive after the office is closed we see them enter and meet them at the gate. You were greeted and directed to your site, unfortunately in your haste to get to your spot you may not have fully understood the driving instructions.

This was my first time camping with 3 children and a tent. Glad that this camp was recommended to us. Staff were friendly and informative. Activities were well received by all children. Great Job and definiately would recommend to friends and family with children.

What fun for families with children. The man driving the hay ride wagon was great...made it fun for all, including us spectators.
Aug 22, 2013
The owner ran a backhoe most of the afternoon and cut down a tree without any safety equipment. This ruined our visit. The noise was terrible yet minutes after 11 pm we were told to be quiet while sitting around our fire with the kids. The owner was a nut that picked at everything. The set up was good for kids with the pool and equipment but not a friendly place. That was our last trip there.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was also a great set up for all of your unregistered guests who kept popping in as you only live down the street.

Always have fun and there is so much to do for the kids.

Nous avons adoré notre séjour. Les enfants ont été comblés avec toutes les activités sans oublier la crème glacée du samedi. C'est propre et un personnel accueillant. Merci et nous reviendrons l'an prochain

Beau camping tres propre! Les employé son tres gentil et il y avais des tours de ponny pour les enfant. Il a eu de la creme glacé gratuite de toute sorte avec garniture pour tous. A la sortie le propriétaire nous a vidangé notre roulotte sans même que j'ai a touché a quoi que ce soit. Il est tres gentil! Les enfant ont bien aimé les structure de jeu,les jumping pillow et le tour de tracteur.

It's the best KOA in Ontario and Quebec!
Aug 20, 2013
All KOA people very friendly and helpful. Very clean, nice sites, lots of room. Good location, easy to get to. Lots to do. Fun activities planned. Quiet time from 11 pm to 8am very nice. Excellent stay. Definitely would go again.
Aug 20, 2013
We stayed one night. The site and facilities were clean. The pool is NOT an Olympic size pool but it was refreshing after a long day's drive. The wrist bands were a bit much. Our GPS couldn't find Pittston Road but we managed to find it. Otherwise we would definitely go back. Enjoy!

Great as always. Clean. Well maintained. Suggestions: outdoor work out area and gem mining station as another local KOA has. And once again. Bracelets are annoying KOA should find an alternative to curb outsiders from coming in instead of expecting paying guests to have to wear badges of payment. KOA staff can monitor the entry of cars or make sure people display their parking slips to be seen

LOVE the new bathrooms at the back! Safe, clean, very well managed and the kids had an amazing time. Thanks for the free pony rides!!
Aug 19, 2013
Enjoyed our stay and will return. Very clean site and bathrooms which is truly a reflection on the pride they have with the kampsite.

Great time-so much for the kids to do-they really had a blast. Very clean grounds and nice trees!

Absolutely the best family "kampground" I've ever stayed at!! Our kids loved all the activities that were organized, as well as the play areas. We hardly saw them as they were constantly out playing! It's not a campground for peace and solitude, though if your noise tolerance is high, you'll be fine. The campground does go quiet at night due to well enforced quiet time by the dedicated hosts.

It was a wonderful place for our young (under 5) year old niece and nephew. very helpful man helped at the pumping out site

Great friendly staff the best of all KOA's we stayed at. We ran out of wood and the store was closed and one of the staff grabed some for us and told us just to settle in the morning. We were able to enjoy more s'mores with the kids. Thanks for going ABCD for us!

We were here camping for 10 days and it was absolutely wonderful.Very clean, lots of trees, beautiful sites, tons of activities, especially on weekends. Owners and staff are extremely courteous and friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay, a pleasant one. This is a 5 star campground in our opinion.You will not find a better one.

This KOA rating is very hard for me to do. The camp ground it's self was one of the nicest we have stayed at. I was very disappointed when the Local Hydro company shut off power for 4 hours from 8til noon. The KOA knew it was coming but did not notify anyone. This caused my family issues for our day's planned events. I was not impressed at all and would like to be refunded for my stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The Hydro outage took us completely by surprise as well. It had us scrambling to get the generators out and get the pumps working so the toilets would flush. Having them not working for any length of time creates big sanitary issues. We would have been more prepared if we had known in advance.

Camp ground was very clean and staff was very nice. Rain flooded lot first night nobody offered to move us to open unflooded lots.Next day no power or water for several hours. Price was at the upper end for facilities offered(extras had additional charges).Thought someone should have check on us and maybe offered a free round of mini-golf or two for our inconvenience. This was not a fun time.
Aug 18, 2013
first time at a KOA and were very please with our visit, not only was the campground wonderful the great staff really made our visit, we will be using KOA again , warm, friendly and enjoyable, all the things one looks for in a vacation, when you only have a limited time to vacation one should visit KOA thanks
