The Kate start to the season was obvious with all the work being done around the campground. The rubbish/recycling area needs attention.

We had a fantastic time. We were unsure as last year we didn't have a good time but a lot has been changed and it was fantastic. They even helped celebrate my daughter birthday with a card and a balloon she felt so special. Roy is fixing so many things that were broken and in disrepair. It's being renovated as we speak so isn't 100% but the vision and portential is amazing we are hoping to return

What a great family weekend we had at Marmora KOA ! Staff were all friendly and helpful. Because of the bad weather this spring, some upgrades and winter clean up was not yet completed. But, our family really enjoyed amenities like rental bikes, hayride, bingo and pplaygrounds. Indoor pool was still cold, but our wee ones still liked it. Really good campground ! Thanks !

Lots of fun, pool wasn't open yet but we still made it a fun visit.

I understand that this campground is undergoing a renovation but I can't accept the ignorance that the owner shows the minute you disagree with him, he is not organized at all and nothing is his problem it's always on the camper, and the indoor pool is cold is an outdoor pool in January, plus the black mold on the ceiling is just gross, I will not return to this KOA until it's under new management

Enthusiastic and friendly staff. Did their best to accommodate however they were battling Mother Nature and quite a few of the sites were in very poor condition.

Location is great. 5 min drive to Madoc, Ontario which has a state of the art skate park for teens and toddlers with splash pad and three story play structure. The KOA is large enough for the kids to adventure and ride thier bikes and not get bored. Owner is working hard to change and the potential is there. Weather has been terrible this year and preventing work. Pool was cool park is ok.

Spent 3 nights at this KOA last week, and it is totally under renovation. Unfortunately it had rained for many days, and the park was a mud bog, Long walk to dispose of garbage . Internet did not work at sites, but had to go into the building to use it. Complained everyday re internet but was not offered any refund. The park will be wonderful when it is finished, and dries up. Perfect for ATVS

Park not in proper condition to be open for the May long weekend. The heated indoor pool isn't. Trailer was not completely functional. Staff were polite and attentive though.
May 27, 2017
I think this park will be wonderful once your vision has been completed. It seems like a lot of the park is under construction and some spots looked rather desolate. We did find all the staff we encountered to be super helpful and friendly. And the owner was always present which is nice

-they booked more trailer then sites available. -rude owner -unorganized -very muddy sites -bathroom were dirty -they say pool was heated but very COLD 72* -when we booked we had request to be near the playground, we told site A10 when we got there they gave it away and we were put in very muddy seasonal site. -it wasn't prepared for the weekend. -will NEVER return

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am truly sorry that you had such a bad experience. I can't imagine how that must have been. We are working at hiring new staff and improving the grounds so this will never happen again. I hope that you will give us another chance.
May 26, 2017
Improvements are happening at this previous run down koa. Roy is certainly trying. It's a lot cleaner. Long as he keeps working at it he will have a great place
May 26, 2017
Disaster!!! This place should not be a KOA!! Not the usual amenities and cleanneness you normally get. Pool ice cold, mud campsites without any grass. Garbage all over the campground. I found staff to be ok. I will not return to this campground.
May 26, 2017
The owner, Roy I believe, actually called a teenage boy a terrible name in front of my children
May 26, 2017
Sites are undeveloped since seasonals all left ? Buried extension cords provide power ??? Not safe ?? No garbage cans anywhere ! Washroom locked overnight , guy on bullhorn continually yelling about come and buy there food ,not what most campers want , overall not a good experience
May 26, 2017
Well first off we travelled from London Ontario. We arrived on site at 830pm only to find our site was a mud hole. Our truck and little tent trailer sunk in the grass. It took 6 people that were camping near by to help us get our truck off the site, only to have the park owner get mad at us for ruining his site that was clearly not ready for us.
May 26, 2017
New owner is indeed doing lots to improve and is very nice. A few thinks need tending to now. 72 Degree pool needs to be heated!!!!!!! Garbage cans - none. Breakfast and lunch bbq awesome.but beside septic dump station. Ewwww. Bathrooms- clean and fix smell
May 26, 2017
personnel is awesome but the sites are been changed. new owner, a lot of work to be done
May 26, 2017
This KOA is one of the best ones we stayed at... The New Owner is very involved - so many fun things planned for our Long Weekend. Would stay again in the future - Highly recommend this gem. Thank you!!
May 26, 2017
Way better last year never coming back again and wouldn't tell anybody to go there
May 26, 2017
It is a great park and we had a good weekend despite all the rain, mud and bugs...looking forward to returning

Thank you very much. We look forward to seeing you again.

Owner personally oversaw free games and activities for the children throughout the weekend. All staff went above and beyond.
May 21, 2017
This is a Dump!! That's the first thing I thought when I drove up. Can't believe it's a KOA. This was reinforced when I saw Police there, found no hot water in bathroom sinks and septic hole pipes at sites were just dirt holes in the ground (I checked 2 others as well as my own). Place swarming with clouds of black flies. WiFi is free for only 1 hour and doesn't work well. I'd never go again!

i have been in this camp for 34 years. I'm still coming back again this year to see all the changes he has made, the new owner talks to everybody and helps everybody out. I enjoy it very much.

Thank you for your positive feedback. Taking over a campground is a big challenge and it really helps when people are positive and encouraging.

Twice a year the Coughlan family gets together for a camping weekend. Once in July and again in October - thanksgiving weekend. We have been doing this for quite a few years now. We usually rent a cabin and the only thing I would reccomend is that the cabins come with a propane BBQ. It would also be nice to have a cabin that accommodated 6 people. My family is getting bigger now and they are outgr

Thank you for your suggestions. These are great.

Kids activities lacking. Kids no longer allowed in hot tub and indoor pool very cold. Trailer rental more dated with missing essentials for cooking/eating... fridge had mold. Don't know if staff cleans. Just not as great as other KOA's.
Oct 17, 2016
had a nice time only complaint pool was too cold
Oct 16, 2016
The new owner is working hard to clean the place up ,it needed that wish the pool is warmer
Oct 16, 2016
Nice to see that this is changing into a more traditional KOA campground.
Oct 16, 2016
great to see the park being cleaned up but the noise level was intolerable for sleeping.The'quiet hours' were not enforced on Friday night at all with sites partying until after 2 a.m. and were not respected by the KOA on Saturday night Halloween party that went until after 12:30.This made for VERY poor sleep.We enjoyed the proximity to the trails but would not return here because of the noise.
Oct 13, 2016
Thanksgiving weekend was a lot of fun for everyone. Potluck, dance, hayrides,bingo, trick or treating, hot tub and pool and great staff what else could you ask for.
Oct 11, 2016
Staff was friendly. The park is going through a transition with most of their long terms guests leaving. Was very noisy with everyone tearing apart decks and add in rooms. Not what we are used to for a KOA,
Oct 04, 2016
Another great stay!
Oct 02, 2016
We enjoyed our stay and see prospect for future stays. The new management has a vision and with a little work and determination he will have a great koa. We look forward to seeing what happens. Next year will be quieter.
Sep 30, 2016
When I went to check told person what size unit I had and wanted a pull through as we were car in tow she told me I was rude should have left,
Sep 27, 2016
We enjoyed our stay everyone was really nice. Unfortunately it would have nice to know and have the option to cancel our stay due to all the demolition that was going on the entire weekend.
Sep 27, 2016
our stay was great
Sep 27, 2016
It was a great place, met some great people, our daughter made some great friends, the price was perfect, a little noisy but understandable as there is new ownership and they're trying to clean up the park, my family and I would most definitely come back again.
Sep 26, 2016
We had a fantastic weekend here with our 3 kids, there was lots for them to do. They had such a good time we are taking them back again this weekend. Staff were very friendly and are working very hard to make improvements throughout the park!
Sep 26, 2016
Loved that the koa is all about the kids having fun! We will be back :)
Sep 26, 2016
Needs work although new owner is trying to update. Very poor compared to other KOA campgrounds. No jumping pillow for kids, campers are allowed to be quite noisy during evening hours from 7:00 pm to 10:pm, differently not for R & R.
Sep 25, 2016
Really upsetting and bad for a KOA.The worst one I've ever been too lots of noise and upset campers.Never again would I go there.

Friendly helpful staff and owners. Sites are a good size and overall the facilities are in decent condition. We will definitely be back next year.
Sep 20, 2016
We really enjoyed the park. The only issue was quite a number of trailer sites were moving out which caused a lot of noise and traffic at all hours all weekend. I understand that the manager is bringing the park up to standard but it was annoying. We did enjoy the bingo on the rainy Saturday afternoon. I would like to try the park again when there is not so much upheaval .
Sep 19, 2016
We booked in with our family (my husband and our 5 kids) even after reading the terrible reviews but after 2 days I understand why they've been getting 1 star. We already weren't impressed before we even got here. We got caught behind an accident and were delayed, so I went online and it said they were open until 9pm on Thursday's. I started calling at 7pm to let them know we'd be checking in a bi

Overall the stay was good. Very nice location within a green, forested area. Only complaint was that the "indoor heated pool" was not actually heated and was freezing cold. Otherwise everything was good and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
