Campground Reviews

Sep 23, 2013
Great stay, site we had was awesome, others we would not have wanted, but ours was great. Playground for the kids was perfect and they loved it there. Owner (I think was owner, a man) was very friendly. We are looking forward to visiting multiple times next year!

We did enjoy our stay but we really didn't like the campsite that we were given. It was really wet and it backed onto water. I wish that I would have known that because I have two small children who are not afraid to go into any water.The ground was wet but that was due to all the rain. It smelt like sewer and we would have liked to been on higher ground.

Wonderful campground - excellent facilities.

We really like camping at KOA Halifax West. It's close to home but still far enough away to relax. The upgrades have been great this year. Keep up the good work!

Love this place. We had a great spot right on the lake. The resident ducks provided great entertainment.

We enjoyed our stay but the office-check-in parking area is very congested and it make it difficult for big rigs to park and not block access to the road leading to the camp sites. Too many vehicles in too small an area.

Great additions to the cabins....fridge and shelf. Genius. Kids loved the banana bikes. Although it rained we still had a great time

We were very cordially received and had a great time. Since we had a problem with our camper, it helped a great deal that the campground is at the same time CruiseCanada's Halifax hub. The relevant service was absolutely exemplary! Thanks Joe and Russ!

Great place to stay. Not too far from home to get there, but when we are there it feels like we are a million miles away. Exactly what we need.

The Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help with everything.

We love it here. We didnt get there as much this year due to a new job, etc..but are already planning for more time spent here next year. And even though we were late getting there, they still accomodated us. And even though it rained, we loved it. Its our home away from home. They do an amazing job with this Koa. The only thing I would love to see is a bigger rec hall with activities.

I was VERY disappointed with our stay this time. we purchased the rewards card because the lady said it would be cheaper(it was buy one night get 2nd free). well it was tropical rain storm our site got completely flooded to the point of ducks swimming under our trailer, our firepit was completely submersed in water and we could not sit outside due to the amount of water, we asked for a rain check

Well maintained campground. Pleasently surprised to see lots of trees in a KOA! Too bad there is a bit of a swamp on the north end of the campground. Frogs in the small wetland area kept us up the first night of our stay. Private washrooms were fantastic!

Our stay was excellent, very nice park, nice sites, it is a little far from Halifax, but not bad. We enjoyed very much.

Great facility and excellent staff. Thank you.

The cottage was beautiful, the amenities were perfect. The staff was super friendly. Exactly the vacation we were hoping for. We will definitely be back!

You have nice ducks on your lake :-), i like it to be in Woods Campground! Nice Staff, it's a pleasure to stay in your campground.

We thought closing the store at 6pm was a bit early. I know it was late in the season but the place looked untidy. The owners were very nice and helpful.

My family and I enjoy spending time at the KOA's in both Halifax and Cavendish. However our latest trip to Halifax we had some issues with the cleaning staff. Rude comments were said behind my back. When we asked to have a quick look inside one of the cabins while it was being cleaned, the tone the lady used was rude and inappropriate towards my wife.

Great stay once again.

Thank you for a great kamping experience. We particularly enjoyed camping on the St.John River. It was neat that our nearest neighbors were a little flock of mallard ducks. The staff were kind, courteous and helpful. The facilities were clean and tidy despite the misuse of some campers. We decided to camp here on our return trip.
Sep 09, 2013
This was a return visit. We were able to park at the same site near the river and were delighted to canoe the St.John from the campsite.

Always like the KOA's, friendly staff, well maintained facilities. It rained when we were there but enjoyed it all the same. Got in a little geocaching from our spot. Always a good thing.
Sep 09, 2013
We booked and payed a week ahead with confirmation emailed back to be next to other family members camping there when on arrival to find that our lot was rented out that we payed for and had to take a lot a fair walk away not real happy but we made the best of it any way

The kids love the bouncy pillow!
Sep 09, 2013
We stayed for 2 nights at the KOA, Halifax West. My Kids loved the playground and the bouncing pillow. They also used the pool. It was after labor day and we did not get to try the pancake house. The highway is close so you do hear the highway. The lots are quite close. Overall a fun campground for kids.
Sep 09, 2013
Excellent proximity to many Halifax, South Shore and Eastern Shore sights. Noisy traffic from nearby Hwy 101. Kids biking on roadways without adult supervision created driving hazards.

We liked the campground in general but our site (D12) and the one next to it would get a frequent odor from the sewer system. Would not want either of those sites in the future.
Sep 08, 2013
THE SITES WERE CRAMPED. IT SEEMED IN GENERAL THAT THERE WAS A BIT TOO MUCH SUMMER FOR THEIR RESOURCES. ALSO, THE WAY THE CHILDREN RACE AROUND ON THE RENTED BICYCLES IS GOING TO END UP DISASTEROUSLY SOME DAY. THEY DON'T LOOK AND THEY ARE SO LOW THEY ARE HARD FOR DRIVERS TO SEE. I HAVE BEEN AT OTHER KOAS WHERE THE BIKES WERE USED AND THIS DIDN'T SEEM TO BE A PROBLEM.

it was amazing an really enjoyed it just wish it wasnt so expensive :)
Sep 07, 2013
This KOA was somewhat crowded at the front office and left no room to park our truck when we wished to go into the store. It was also frightening to drive to our site due to many children on the camps rental bikes/carts. Otherwise our stay was pleasant.

The staff at this campground were friendly and helpful but I found the campsites too rocky, there wasn't much grass, so when it rained it was a huge mess. I wanted to request my own site, which was a big ordeal but not all the sites are nice.

I called 2 months in advance so I could have 2 spots together and paid for 2 nights in advance. when we arrived they had C22 and #14 and couldn't do anything to help. They didn't even give us two spots in the C section. The person waiting on us advised she didn't know why they would do this maybe to assist a large crowd that came in later. Also, a friend came to visit and they charged her $3.

We had a short stay, just one night. The check in staff were very friendly. The facilities were clean. The only difficulty we had were with the 'one way' roadways. We had difficulty maneouvering to the dump site with our trailer.

This was our second visit to your kampground and my family had a wonderful time! Thank you. The kids loved the activities and we all enjoyed the the salt-water pool.
