We had a great weekend! There were many Christmas in July activities planned over the weekend. We had a blast! Thanks!

Amenities were great for kids! Not happy that we were not told upon check in that we would have to change sites on our 4th night of stay for 1 night. Was very inconvenient.

Great place to stay! The kids had lots to do and there were different activities everyday for them. I love that the pool is shallow for the kids to be able to play and swim without worrying about a deep end. The ground were well kept, washrooms and showers very clean. And all the staff were great! We will definitely stay here again!

Awesome

Great campground but pool was murky and showers were poor

We found the stay a bit unfriendly. Not much smiles on the faces. the small structure (the one for youger kids) looked REALLY gross. there was a sign saying no footwear allowed but with that dirt i would never take the shoes off my child to go in there. a little water hosing with soap scrubs would go a long way for taking shoes off.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The structure was definitely dirty from the kids walking in the mud and then going into the structure. Our staff have given the whole thing a once over with soap from top to bottom and it is looking much better. We will check this after every rainfall to make sure it does not get too muddy inside again.

We had a fabulous 4 night getaway! The playgrounds, splash pad , pool, themed hayrides and other fun activities were fantastic for our family! We will definitely return!

I absolutely love this campground. It's clean and there are many activities for the children. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you have the best stay. My only recommendation is that they install a second sink to wash dishes near the back washroom, it would make the experience even better for those who need it and lower weight times to wash dishes on busy weekends!

As always a great stay at Cardinal KOA!

the lots are very poorly drained. The worst is the owner, when he told a customer who was in line in front of me for ice cream, when asked if he had his bracelet, the customer said yes, unfortunately.(hinting that they are inconvenient to wear). The owner bluntly told him "Well maybe you should not come back here anymore" then paused and said "seriously, it would be a good thing" I'm not back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately you were not aware of the other times that we have had difficulties with this same customer and his family, who have been very rude with our staff and uncooperative with the rules. There are two sides to every story and both sides should be considered before you pass judgement.

Too expensive with all the extra additional fees, too expensive for visitors to come for a few hours, fields too flooded as soon as it rains so limits kids play space, very very muddy

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do set a high price for our visitors as we usually fully booked on the weekends and adding visitors puts a strain on the facilities. So we price to discourage visitors, especially on the weekends, so the campers who have paid to camp have access to what they paid for.

Nothing to special, lots of stuff cramed together for the kids to do.. pool was dirty/cloudy... sign of dead Algie and at times over populated/ worried about safety .. wood was very over priced almost $10 buck for 7-8 piece of birch that smolders. The weekend we stayed 1/2 the park was underwater .. clean restrooms, staff/kids are friendly.

Apologies for the pool color, we had a huge storm on Friday, July 7 that took out the power for 7 hours, that shut down the circulating pumps, that caught our wood burning heater on fire, that melted the plastic pool pipes, that caused the filter to conch out. Daniel struggled each day for more than a week to get all repair. We did test water daily to ensure safety. Pool is crystal clear again.

We had a wonderful time. Staff helpful, friendly, courteous. facilities excellent
Jul 17, 2017
Awesome!!
Jul 17, 2017
Because of constant rain recently there were some really soggy/muddy areas in the the campground and incredibly the management was attempting to Pump out wet areas! We had a blast as always (5th year visiting I think). We love how much fun the kids have on the Saturdays! We go as group of friends with our families camp every year together. 💞 Koa Cardinal

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The grandchildren enjoyed all of the activities they were able to partake in.Staff courteous and friendly and campground clean and well kept. Hope to return again.
Jul 17, 2017
The site is quiet being away from the 'entertainment' at the front. Splash pad is VERY cold though (not same temp as pool itself) baby play area is fantastic! The shower areas for women could use a little tlc. The pump out tractor that comes to each site is a bonus

owner treats guests like they are in a jail I am contacting corporate koa directly to discuss our experience

Being part of a large group does not exempt you from the rules. We do apply our rules fairly to everyone, regardless of who you are associated with. That way all of our campers have a good time without being disturbed by you.

The kids activities are great and the sites are clean. We had a lot of fun and are stay memorable. My only complain is that I have a 6 month old that is 23Ibs and there is no way to get a stroller up the bathroom stairs. The second bathroom has only one step but the bathroom is to small to fit a stroller. As a single Mom there was no one to leave the baby with while I went to the washroom.
Jul 15, 2017
Nice place; nice people. Since there is no sewer hook-up, it would be nice to have more showers, and maybe update them a bit.
Jul 15, 2017
The staff was great and the activities kept our 12 yr old and 14 yr old granddaughters happy
Jul 15, 2017
Enjoyed stay. Close to Ottawa was primary attraction. Weather was terrible so didn't really make use of available facilities. Staff friendly and obliging.
Jul 15, 2017
Great spot for the kids! Washroom and facilities were very clean. Staff was present and helpful when it came to any questions or inquiries we had. Highly recommend.
Jul 15, 2017
Awesome family campground. Well maintained and tons of activities for kids to do. Will definitely be staying there again!
Jul 14, 2017
I am sure this camp ground is perfectly lovely under normal circumstances but our experience certainly suffered due to recent weather. Large sections of the camp, including our site and most of the recreation facilities, were badly flooded on arrival. This improved with he weather over the three days we were there. We also found the pool to be cloudy / murky.
Jul 13, 2017
We found this KOA very kid friendly.
Jul 12, 2017
We have been coming for a few years now and it's what our kids and us look forward to most all summer! Can't wait to come again!
Jul 12, 2017
This KOA is run by amazing people and I would camp there all summer, if I could. The place is incredibly well-maintained and it is somewhere I plan to make many memories with my family for years
Jul 11, 2017
Staff is amazing. Remember from year to year.
Jul 11, 2017
we honestly have been camping for well over 10 years and by far the best place we've been at .Unreal how much they do for the kids not one complaint from us... loved it !!!!
Jul 10, 2017

We have visited this park numerous times with our grandchildren. Always a great stay. We look forward to the next time.
