My kids and I love staying at the Thunder Bay KOA. There is always lots of kids to play with, activities in the evenings, and a clean atmosphere. The bathrooms are always clean & tidy, there is visible staff all over the grounds if you need help with something (which is a bonus)and the rates are fair. I especially love the new layout of the Main Office and the new venu/items sold. Good Job!!

Although we were there only 1 night, we were impressed. Very friendly staff, right from the moment we pulled up. Being escorted to our site is a big help. We didn't have any kids with us, but sure was fun to see all the kids on the hayride. Great place!!

The assigned spot was occupied with campers watching a koa hosted event and were in the way when we tried to set up. Our Picnic table was being used at the event and did not return.We were too long for the assigned site. No one escorted us to the site. There was no fire pit and the store had expired products. The manager did not seem to care about the expiry dates. Great showers/ washrooms.

The only problem we experienced was the price.You should have a seniors rate.

This kampground far exceeded our expectations. The whole facility was extremely clean. Our kids kept busy with the many amenities that it offers. The staff were very friendly as well. Thank you and keep up the great work.

As always, our stay was most enjoyable. Check-in is painless and fast. Questions are answered with a smile. The bathrooms are roomy, spotless and clean. This KOA is the best campground I've ever encountered :)

Very noisy in the morning (RV generators?) Tent sites were very close together.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have many tent sites to choose from. Together we could have chosen a preferred site, had you come back to the office upon setting up. Generators are not allowed in our park.

wifi spotty. expensive

We are currently working with TBay Tel for WiFi upgrade.

We asked a number of times even phoned ahead to be placed close to washrooms due to my husbands mobility. We were placed the furthest away from the old washrooms. Not too clean or impressed by how hard they tried to find a closer one.

So sorry that your special request was not met. I have checked back on your reservation and do not see any notes indicating your request, thus the verbal request was not met. I do apologize. Our "New" handicap easy accessible restrooms will be open shortly.

We paid $63.00 for one night-stated free Wifi...however we were told we were in a "dead zone"....no discount was provided.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do not charge for Wifi, it is available at our main office. We are working together with TBay Tel for upgrades to our Wifi.

Attitude très accueillante - services extra - site très propre et bien organisée
Jul 18, 2013
staff very friendly and helpful. Entrance road needs some major work...very rough & I hate to hear my dishes rattling and falling off of shelves as I drive INTO an Rv park. Also, the park does not enforce quiet hours...site occupants 2 doors away had guest and loud conversation till almost 11 pm

Very nice, the KOA was clean, staff is friendly and welcoming.
Jul 17, 2013
staying a whole month at KOA we really met a lot of nice people-made new friends that we will keep in touch with. Will return before summers end.
Jul 17, 2013
We have stayed at this KOA before and it seems like it has gone down hill. Our site hadn't been mowed and wasn't clean. The WiFi is non- existent unless you are sitting next to the tower and maybe not then! We will check out other campgrounds on our next visit to Thunder Bay.

We were placed among seasonal who ran quads and motorcycles. Too many children unsupervised.
Jul 16, 2013
I can see why this KOA has won so many awards. Other than traffic noise this is one of the nicer KOAs that we have visited.

We had tire issues west of Kenora and realized that we couldn't make our reservation, so I called and was able to move the reservation one day without paying a penalty even though I was scheduled to be there that day and expected to pay for that night. Thank you for accomodating us, we would love to spend more time there during our next visit.

Staff was very thoughtful moving us to an area that was less busy. Cabin was very good and we enjoyed our stay.

The staff were so helpful and booked us into a kamping kabin at the last minute because of the rain. The trains going by were disturbing at night.

over rated. didn't appreciate waiting with 2 basket loads of washing, post wet weather, holiday time, muddy kids clothes, while the staff member (lady with the short spike hair) monopolised the washers and dryers with her personal laundry. Surely she would have before and after hours (9am-9pm) access ?!
Jul 10, 2013
The kampground was clean and the staff were visible for any issues that might occur. Small disappointment in the shower house near our kabin, not up to usual KOA standards, a little run down and only one stall in the Men's and two in the Woman's. Hopefully the new building has showers in it.

Our "NEW" handicap accessible restrooms & showers will be open in the very near future!

The KOA camp was great.The staff were very helpful during our stay.We have already recommended the grounds to several friends.When we are in the area we will not hesitate to stay at this site.

Our site was such that our fifth-wheel was about 2ft from the main road into the other sites. We felt like we were set up in a parking lot!

Thanks for following up with my daughter's earring found in the pool, she's so happy !
