We were looking at our calendar before we left already to see when we could squeeze another stay in before the end of the season! We all had a fantastic weekend and can't wait to return!

It was a great stay. The park is clean, well cared 4. Like any KOA really. We're happy 2 have it close to us. Our only criticism would be, those 4 & 3 wheel carts should be free 4 kids. make kids sign up for time on them. Really to charge kids! I'm a member and spend a lot of $ camping. I am at the point I may not stay again at a KOA because if this. Stop charging for late check out if ur a membe

Once again, had a great time!! Truly appreciated the pool being opened on the Saturday, made the weekend that much more pleasant! Can't say enough about the friendliness, cleanliness and overall ambiance if this location! We love it!

Amazing campground for the kids. Great play structure and all the other outdoor activities for the kids that you'd expect. The grounds are nicely treed which is nice for natural shade instead of just a big field. Very nice, will certainly make it a regular spot!

Another great weekend at KOA Cardinal. Always a ton of activities for the kids, rain or shine! Thanks!

All pine trees so you pretty much get a view of everyone if you are into that,water was really chrorinated or something,had to go buy drinking water,and the $20 per visitor price is outrageous. The facilties were clean and modern,nice large pool but no hottub:(

Très bien aménagé pour les enfants de tous âges, ce camping comprend des aires de jeux réservés pour les moins de trois ans et d'autres pour les plus grands. La présence de nombreux pins sur le site rendent l'accès plus difficile pour les gros véhicules. Un système de branchement pour les égouts serait souhaitable.

Wonderful and clean.

We had not planned to stay for 8 days but we had such a good experience here that we decided to stay and enjoy Ottawa coming back to our lovely spot. It was quiet, extremely clean, great facilities. contentious owners. Would love to return.

One of the best KOA's we have stayed at so far. Clean, run like a well oiled machine, very helpful and friendly staff...only complaint was a group of families that let their kids run wild, walk through everyone's campsites and not being supervised when they should have been. Campground itself was fantastic!
Sep 16, 2015
Good except for the rain which is not the fault of the campground!
Sep 14, 2015
It was an extremely wet and cool weekend but all the staff still had smiles on their faces. We love this place. The Gabel's

There was an opportunity to have most of the 60 kids win a Bar at bingo sadly they let 2 kids win over 100 bars very disappointing a golden opportunity was missed

The weekend my 4 year old and I stayed rained the whole weekend and it was cold. The Cardinal KOA had enough activities to keep my 4 year old happy that we not only stuck out the weather, but when it was time to pack up at the end of the weekend, my 4 year old didn't want to leave. If we would have gone to any other campsite, we would have packed up and left Saturday morning. Thank You KOA!

Malgré la pluit, le personnel était souriant et les activités ont eu lieu comme prévu. Super!

Love the Cardinal KOA! So many great amenities, so clean and well maintained and I appreciate that Dan enforces the quiet hours.

The only negative thing I can say was the fact that a nearby residence had a dog outside (probably 24/7) that barked all the time... Other than that, very nice place for a family and really love the quiet hours that are respected by all... Oh, and thenplace is super clean...

We have been here in the past. We are happy to have visited again and we look forward to the next time. We love this campground. Staff are friendly, activities are great for kids and the campground is always clean. Wonderful campground for families. Lots to do for the entire family.

Only one dumping station and no honeywagon service. Huge chaos on leaving Sunday and owner pulled both my black and grey water at same time. The owner comes around to lots at 11pm nightly and found that annoying and invading privacy. All campgrounds usually just drive cart around to make sure no one is getting out of hand. No need to come in person right up to campfire.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do have a honey wagon! It is the big red thing that was pulled behind the big orange tractor all weekend emptying trailers. It was also in the front driveway pumping when you left! We do the pumping when campers leaving on Sunday, using our hose, to ensure the lines move quickly and efficiently.

This is our favorite getaway for a long weekend as it is so close to home, I call it our second home away from home. Staff is very friendly and washrooms are clean and the sites are nice and spacious. The only thing is the Wifi needs to be improved

We always enjoy our stay at KOA Cardinal. Daniel always outdoes himself with the fireworks, and the potluck meal. A great way to send the kids off to school and bring our summer to an end!
Sep 08, 2015
fun
Sep 08, 2015
Excellent as usual. Clean, well organized, fantastic staff. Great fireworks display and roast beef pot luck dinner.
Sep 08, 2015
Great campground...lots of fun activities for kids. Really resent having to wear a bracelet all weekend to identify myself as a camper...seems like overkill.
Sep 08, 2015
Our First visit. We will return but not on a weekend. Too many kids. Great for the kids but not for retired couple. Recommend a railing be put on pool to help get in and out.
Sep 08, 2015
Great spot to bring your children
Sep 08, 2015
It was great!
Sep 08, 2015
The owner is rude and abusive to adults and kids alike. There should be way to have the man charged with verbal assault. Extremely disappointed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Disappointment for us too! Your unruly group spoiled a lot of our campers' weekend. Starting to drink when you parked and didn't stop for 3 days. Music too loud, late night noise, profanity, cutting through occupied sites, kids banned from store, garbage all over, aggressive with others, NO concept!
Sep 08, 2015
Amazing campground. We will be back. Dan is the hardest working man I've seen! He keeps the place looking great!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for your comments, it is rewarding to know that people notice the hard work that goes into running the campground. We try our very best to ensure everyone has a great experience and that things are clean and safe. See you again soon!

Overall we enjoyed our stay. The park was well organized and we hd a nice site. However,I don't know if we would come back based on the fact that the koa breed discriminates against dogs. On your site it should state no rottweilers. I'm glad we left ours home for a break. I would of been upset if we drove 3 hours to be turned away. I take pride in my well behaved rottweilers

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The website does say no Rottweilers. We love dogs & have a wonderful off leash park for both big & small dogs. Unfortunately certain breeds have been branded as aggressive due to their history and not their individual natures. We have to abide by the rules set out for us under our insurance & KOA.

It's always fun and a pleasure to be among friends. Love it. Thanks!

Very clean park and lots for our 5 year old son to do. We had a bit of an issue the one night when 6 adults were sitting around the fire and Dan came by to remind us it was 11pm, I think it sometimes is just his approach, we felt like a bunch of kids getting in trouble. We weren't being loud but voices do travel when it is quiet and rules are rules. All is good and we plan to return next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for understanding about the quiet time rules. When guests are sitting outside chatting they sometimes loose track of the time so a gentle reminder at 11 helps to make people aware of the hour. It is always meant respectfully. We look forward to your return, travel safely.

The stay was great. The rules at this campground are stricter than any other KOA park that I've been at. Other campers were saying the same thing. Let the kids be kids and have fun without staff telling them that they are not allowed to do that.
