Another amazing weekend among friends and family!

The staff is very friendly, and the washrooms are kept very clean. The activities are well organized. And it is nice and quiet after 11pm. The jumping pillow is still a favorite for my teenage kids.

A fabulous place for kids, so much for them to do. The staff are very friendly and always go above and beyond. We go to this location at least once a summer.

Great stay for Labour Day weekend - Fantastic job on the fireworks display and children`s activities. A little bothered that sewage pump out on the neighbour`s trailer happened during supper time - it put a damper on the family meal. Wifi service is poor.

Excellent Campgrounds, very clean and well taken care of. Lots of activities and features to keep the kids busy for days.I will definately be back.

kids had fun .. kinda pricy with extra charges for everything .. WIFI was not very good ... dog park had gaping gaps under the fence that allowed dogs to escape, so really couldn't be used as a dog run at all ! Our site was covered in gooey gum covered pine cones that stuck to everything, including our dogs and vehicles ! The price should be for your whole family - me my wife and 3 children !

Wonderful campground. Great place for families with children 10 years old and under. The staff was fantastic. facilities were clean. Amazing fireworks :). This was our first trip at your location and we can't wait to be back next year.

The campground was enjoyable for my children given there were lots of activities to keep them busy. However, I would not return to the Cardinal KOA. They were not accommodating to our personal situation and forced us to take down our second tent. Both tents were small and I am a single mother of two with a friend accompanying us. They need to be more accommodating to the ever changing family.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We only allow one sleeping unit per site. This rule is on our website and is also on our reservation confirmations. You were also specifically told this rule when you registered. It should have come as no surprise that you were asked to take the tent down or move it to a different site.

Really think it is unfair that we had to pay for dumping when the campground does not have sewage on any of the sites. Mobile dumping is free only after 5 days, our tanks fill much more quickly, this seems like a cash grab. Also more showers needed and often showered in cold water.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately we are on a well and a holding tank. Water supply is not unlimited and we pay to have all grey and black water hauled away. We encourage campers to conserve as much water as possible. Dumping is free on the way out. Shower has a head to control water temp, need to turn it to hot.

The place is updated, clean and the staff are great people. They work hard to make sure you have a very well deserved break from the hustle and bustle of real life. The activities for the kids are great and well planned.

The stay was fine and the campground is well kept, and washrooms clean, the only complaint I would have is the gates being shut at 11pm and having to park outside and walk in. We had been out for the day and have small children to expect people to carry the children into the campsite seems crazy. A coded gate would work much better. Also the lack of sewage hook up for long stays is difficult.

Beautiful campground. Fantastic hospitality. A very nice place to visit.
Aug 26, 2014
Our stay was great, but we were disappointed in the wifi as most of the time it either didn't work or was extremely slow. Other than this issue this is an amazing campground with lots of fun family things to do.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for the poor internet. We have outgrown our existing equipment, as almost every person now has 1 or 2 electronic devices, including young children. We have purchased a new internet system and are currently installing it, so there should be a big improvement next time you come.

We all had fun and my wife and kids loved the most. I hope to comeback soon.

Fantastic, Our grandchildren & ourselves had a great time. All activities very well organized and grounds, store, play area, pool were excellent. Site was well maintained and clean which means alot to us.
Aug 25, 2014
Before we left we had already contacted friends and family about how wonderful this KOA is. We have started making plans to return next year. We loved the activities for our kids (ages 6-10) as well as things for younger children too. We also felt that the extra activities to enjoy were affordable (Miniputt, water slide, bike rentals). We found the campground to be clean and the staff friendly.
Aug 25, 2014
Great place to stay. Kids really had a fantastic time, everything from the mini put to the slippery slide to the pool. The weekend was a big success. Thanks.

The site and the staff are amazing! Happy kids equals happy parents.

The campground was a great place for children with lots to do and great amenities. Although the campground was very full and accommodations were tight I was expecting that when coming. It is very obvious that this campground is highly successful and success often goes to peoples head. The owners and staff are missing the most important piece of making any vacationers stay great and that is remembe

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes, the gentleman, who did not think that visitor charges should apply to his guests. Who refused to pay for them & then had them enter the campground anyways & was upset when they were asked to either pay or leave.

well organise for a small campground and the kids love it
Aug 23, 2014
Love the place and the kids had a blast but the only thing is the owner came and told us to be quite 3 times between 11-12 and we where just 2 couples talking around the camp fire my son of 6 years old was sleeping in a chair infront of me.So don't tell us we where talking to loud! We where just chit chatting around a camp fire... And we where not even drunk!!So don't think we will be going back
Aug 23, 2014
We went with our grandchildren and they loved all the activities.

KOA Cardinal has been our only KOA experience so far. We have stayed there twice and both times have been very positive. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Facilities are very clean and well maintained. Our children thoroughly enjoy all the activities and we plan to make many more trip in the years to come. Sincerely

I think this is an amazing campground, the owners are extremely nice and professional and not put up with any loudness in the evening past 10 pm with is perfect for us.
