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.

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.

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.

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.

Our stay was good. My daughter was finally tall enough this year to use the banana bikes. We always enjoy ourselves.

Sites very close together. Many kids driving recklessly with bicycles on the narrow and winding road. Almost hit many times while walking the dog. Some control need in this regard. Also a tent and picnic table was on the dog run area so it couldn't be used. First time here and won't be back !

Camp was clean and staff very courteous. Great place for young kids. Firewood is not cheap but sells about same as other campground. Security should put more emphasis on shutting down people who wants to party late, luckily there was only one or two :D

Did not like this camp ground at all. We arrived early in the day a number of sits empty. we got to our site and it was tiny and not one tree. We asked about being moved got a very quick flat NO. we were booked for two nights and there were empty sites throughout our stay. We did not even have a fire as the site was so small the fire pit was sooo close to both our trailer and the neighbours.

Stayed 2 nights. They catered well to all of the children that were there on the Labour Day Long Weekend so much so that they were hardly noticable. We appreciated that.

Enjoyed the staff particularly!

Water pressure varied a great deal and interior roads were very dusty!

I expected more than only 4 blueberries per Verna's blueberry pancakes. The plumbing in the showers gave off a strong sewage smell which is why I'm giving this koa an average score. This trip I stayed at koa Cornwall in PEI, koa north Sydney and this koa and my overall experience at koa is positive and I would recommend koa to anyone and everyone.

No warning about electric and water problems. Our site and 5 others faced dump station 20-40 yards away. Pancake house played late night TV outside only 10 feet from our unit. Laundry was always occupied by employees doing their wash.

Extremely busy with lots of kids. Congested entrance area with campers pulling in/pulling out, campers driving to the laundry, etc. Laundry always full. Very dusty. Bathhouses were very clean.

Everything was fantastic. Too bad you are located so close to the noisy 101 highway.

The staff are friendly and the campground is clean. There is lots for the kids to do. My kids love the banana bikes, though it does get a little expensive with 3 kids at $3/ 1/2 hr. Only drawback is the highway noise as the highway is just beyond the trees.

Friendly, helpful staff. Very clean campground and we had a lovely site!

Pull thru sites could use some trees for shade but other than that very nice, friendly staff.

The swimming pool was not very clean at the time we went à your Koa, it would be a good thing to clean it more often

WE stayed at site #44 and it was very small. The noise from the highway was totally unwelcome and quite disturbing. The dust from the gravel campground road was everywhere. The location near Mount Uniake is good for access to the city and for touring places in the centre of the province.

Kids had fun, and it was small, but great for a few days. Wasn't impressed when I asked to move our site to another location, I was told the sites were booked, but yet they stayed vacant the whole time we were there, my guess is they didn't want to go to the trouble of changing them.

We always enjoy our stay at the Halifax West KOA.

We were very disappointed to be in a open area when I had requested a wooded area for a tent. I was told I had clicked automobile, which meant that we'd be sleeping in our vehicle. Upon returning home I read my reservation, I had clicked automobile but it also mentioned tent twice on my receipt. There were a few other instances that we were disappointed about.
