Great Family fun and VERY clean. They take a lot of pride in this campground. More for RV's though, and the lots were a bit small, would definitely go again!

We had a great time while camping at the Cardinal/Ottawa South KOA. The staff was very friendly and always made us feel welcome. They even looked after out campsite while we were touring the area. The facilites were always clean and the pool was great!!! So glad we chose to stay with you during our family vacation!

Great campground! Staff and fellow camper very friendly and helpful. Great activities and playgrounds for the kids. Great pool! My only suggestion would be to see more umbrellas around the pool, maybe some just next to the water so we would not have to cover ourselves up in sunscreen when we go in for a refreshing swim. This would keep the water clear as well.

I was there for a week, there was activities for the kids all week, camping ground is very clean and the owners are doing a wonderful job maintaing and managing the whole place. My kids and I loved it. I will be going back and won't hesitate to recommend to a friend or family member!

We enjoyed our stay and our grandchildren were thrilled. Everything is so well done, and the staff are amazing and so concerned about our every need. We purchased a ground cover mat and were even offered the option to have it delivered to our site. When we were ready to put it down, Dan, and Phil came to our aid and even moved the picnic table. A farewell kiss from Bryan was heartfelt.Blessings

I'm in my senior yrs, and if your thinking of taking your grand kids camping let me tell you this is the place to go, friendly staff, plenty to do, close to touring sites, and other KOA, will return.

Other then the inflatable slide being a bit overpriced, we loved this campsite, all the activities & entertainment for the entire family and had a great time! We also appreciate being able to accomodate a different trailer site as the one we had was half soaked! We'll be back for sure and have already recommended this KOA to friends! :)

Great time! Was with another mom and 4 kids, perfect for us! Only complaint was odd time to clean bathroom (11-1pm) and very sm site
Jul 17, 2013
The pool was packed with so many kids that my husband did not want to swim and to make things worst the bathrooms next to the pool where being cleaned for 2 hours. Where does all that pipi go to... the pool. Tell the girls to hurry it up a little when cleaning!

We do have satellite washrooms at the back of the campground for use when our main washrooms are getting their big cleaning of the day. It takes time to ensure they are spotless for continued use, however this normally takes our staff less than an hour. It just seems longer if you have to go.

Great family camping!!!

Very expensive ($65.00/n) considering no sewer hook-up.

Clean, well organized and friendly.

The kids loved the games and slides and pool, We like the silence when the kids were enjoying the distractions in a safe environment.
Jul 16, 2013
Campsites r very narrow and u face your neighbours site , nothing going on Sunday no slide or anything.

Great time! Great staff! See you in August!

As always this was a wonderful weekend at the Cardinal/Ottawa South KOA. I always reccomend it to my friends. The owners and staff are wonderful. Great attention to detail and super friendly. Thanks for a great weekend and can't wait until our next trip in August.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kids had a great time. The washrooms were immaculate and the staff very friendly. We will definitely be coming back.
Jul 15, 2013
Facility was ok. 3 things would make it better. 1. Sewer hook-up, 2. Roads are narrow which can cause some tricky maneuvering with large trailers, 3. We felt confined to our trailer once 11pm. Even simple conversation around the fire seemed to be discouraged. However the pool was great! Jungle gym and bouncy pillow was fun. The service was great too!

everything was great

Nous avons apprécié la fin de semaine au KOA. Notre fille a adoré la structure de jeu, la piscine, les vélos, le "ice cream social" et le "jumping pillow". Les terrains sont près l'un de l'autre donc parfait pour une rencontre avec plusieurs amis. Une amie a louer un chalet, il était très propre, super beau et bien divisé. Nous reviendrons sûrement une autre fois.

Our first time camping with our trailer. Had a great time. Friendly staff and guess. We loves the pool area the most. We will be back for sure.
Jul 15, 2013
Friendly staff, fun activities, and great amenities, but site was very uneven and impossible to peg a tent in the gravel.
Jul 15, 2013
very good place for small children. Bit pricey but lots of things to do for kids. Didn't think we should have to pay for extra activities like the slide and mini-put. They should be included in campground rate. But overall very good. Clean and friendly.
Jul 15, 2013
The campground is great for families. It has a variety of activities for all ages. Its is well maintained and staff are very friendly!
Jul 15, 2013
Great for the kids and adults.Great activities planned and our kids loved the "old geezer" who went on the treasure hunt. Clean area, especially the bathrooms. We will be back.
Jul 15, 2013
Great time. Great staff wonderful campground. A definite place for family fun!!!

Everything about this campground is great kid wise very kid friendly but too many strict rules. Quiet time is 11pm which is reasonable and the crew go to every site to warn everyone. ok. But we were sitting by our campfire talking at a normal level and were told to whisper only as if we did not respect the rules we would be asked to pack up and leave. Too strict to enjoy adult time at the fire

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

As a family focused campground campers come here because we enforce the rules & quiet hours. Sometimes campers may not understand that our sites are close together so any sounds, when elevated from too much alcohol, carry very far. Other campers do not want loud talking & laughing waking their kids
Jul 15, 2013
Lots of activities for the kids. Super friendly staff! BUT the sites are way too close together and I really wish the pool opened earlier.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your suggestions. We do take time each morning to ensure that the pool,pool deck and pool chairs are properly cleaned and the pool chemicals are balanced for safe use by our campers during the day. As a result the pool opens daily at 10:00am and remains open until dark.
