Friendly staff. Too many spiders lurking in the bathrooms, laundry area and rec room. It creeped us out. They should consider vacuuming those areas daily and spraying those areas as well as the sites. The sites were not as spider invaded as the mentioned areas above. Good location. Easy to get to the North Sydney port.

was my first stay at a koi. i was surprised it was not that much more expensive than private or state park campgrounds. it was well organized, clean and suited all our needs.

Nice KOA to stay and rest for the night. Close to everything. Owners are very friendly and helpfull

This is a great campground. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was centralized to most surrounding attractions. The only issue is that the campground is close to the highway. Would be better to be in a trailer as opposed to a tent (maybe being at the back of the campground would have helped to?).

We had a fantastic experience at this KOA. Check in was easy, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and it was a beautiful clean area. I liked the bundles of fire wood/kindling/paper. First time I have seen that and it's awesome. I would definitely come back in the future.

Definitely not a lot of privacy and the playground is a bit run down but overall very quiet, clean, nice shoreline for a swim and friendly service! They brought our firewood right to our site! And convenient if you are taking the ferry to Newfoundland!

The owners and staff went above and beyond to accommodate me for an extended stay while waiting for bike parts. I would rate this as one of best KOA stays I have ever had the pleasure to stay at and I have stayed at a lot of them

I really enjoyed the two day I stopped in.. The staff are super friendly and funny. They were also able to commidate out late arrival. The view of the water and cliffs are amazing .. I am a little disappointed in the washroom arrangement in the far end of the grounds, with only two washrooms/showers combo.

Very clean bathrooms and excellent washers and dryers. Beautiful view. Being in a tent, I would like to be more secluded.

Bonnie was very friendly, welcoming and accommodating as I was arriving late. With my purchase of firewood I was supplied with kindling and newspaper for fire starting -- I was thrilled with this! It has been several decades since I camped at a KOA. The free WiFi was also a wonderful surprise. As a woman camping (tenting) alone with my cats, I felt safe and welcomed. Thanks to the team!

Staff were great, helpful. Grounds are clean. Two minute walk to a rocky beach. The area had a great view of the ocean river. We found a few jelly fish and other wild life in the water. While doing so a great back drop of a rocky cliff that is dug out.

Our hosts we extremely nice and a pleasure to deal with. The washrooms could use a little updating, not saying that they are not clean or anything of the sorts. Simply a little dated. Other than that is was a great experience.

Love the location, so scenic. Convenient to the ferry. So glad to have power while tenting. **Toilets seem to need help. When we first arrived, one was overflowing. The second time neither could flush. Otherwise, great!!! Thanks for having us.

I would return in a heart beat not only is the camp clean and the view amasing. The hospitality we received after my brother got really sick was way beyond then expected. They took himbinto his person home where he slept for most the night drove him to the hospital with myself and watched my 2 dogs which were very content. And because of the event gave us a discount to the camp. Coming back Sept.

nice staff, good location

Our stay was wonderful. The kids and dog had a ball. The view is breath taking. Owners were very nice and accommodating. My only complaints were the fire wood we bought was soaked and would light. Also I found the over all appearance to be a bit aged and worn out looking (ie: inside bathrooms, grounds, etc)
Jul 13, 2015
The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The facilities are older but well taken care of. All in all we had a wonderful experience and plan to continue to keep the koa in our travel plans

It was a nice campground. Very good staff. The only thing is the bathrooms need a bit of an upgrade.

I tented and found it to be just fine. Nice picnic tables and fire pits available. The washroom and shower facility was quite clean. The scenery was very good! The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The only thing that would have made it a 5 star would be having an in-ground pool! Thanks very much!

We arrived late and the owners were extremely accommodating, letting us choose the campsite best for our needs with a personal tour of the suggested options and delivery of anything we might need. The facilities are well-kept with lots of activities (especially for kids). Not the fanciest facilities ever but the personal touch made it amazing!

We stayed overnight, taking the ferry to NL. We had mechanical problems on route. Phoned them to advise we would arrive very late (around midnight). No problem, and on arrival, we were welcomed as if we were family. Definitely staying over on our way back to main land. Thank you!

Staff was very friendly. Camp was clean. Had a little road noise. Not a bad place to stay if you are in the area.
