Big Bouncer & Kiddie Big Bouncer
Our most loved activity by far! Bounce away on our giant Big Bouncer or our Little Bouncer designed for children 5 and under. Fun for all ages.
Kids Activities and Games
Kids love our regular morning arts and crafts sessions. In the afternoon we host organized games such as soccer, relays and bike races. Both activities are held daily in July and August and on Saturdays all season long.
Fun for everyone! We host both kids and adult bingo games daily during July and August and on Saturdays all season-long. Prizes awarded to winners, including a cash jackpot for the adults.
Enjoy some old-fashioned fun on our hayrides around the campground. Weather permitting, hayrides are conducted nightly during July and August and on Saturdays all season.
Movies Under the Stars
Watch your favourite films under the stars at our outdoor movie theatre. You bring the chairs, we bring the popcorn! Movies run Saturday (and Wednesday nights in the summer), unless another themed activity is scheduled such as a late evening hayride.
Ice Cream Social
Come and join us for a delicious ice cream social featuring lots of flavors and all the toppings you can imagine.
Cost is $3.00 per bowl and all proceeds go to KOA Care Camps to help send kids with cancer to specialized medical summer camps.
Ice Cream socials are held every Saturday afternoon at 2:30pm.
Kamp K-9 Dog Park
We pamper your pets too! Our fenced leash-free dog park has separate areas for both big and small dogs.
Community Fire Ring
S'mores galore! We offer fire rings at each site, and our large community fire ring is perfect for group campfire fun and sing-alongs!
We offer a free lending library in the basement of the main building. Drop by and pick up a good book to read on a rainy day or while you sun bath on your site. All we ask is that you return the books when you are finished (this trip or next) and if you have any books you are no longer reading that you add them to the library so others have an opportunity to read them too.
Horsehoes, Volleyball and Baseball
Never a dull moment here, pick a game of horseshoes, volleyball or baseball with friends.
Mini Putt- 18 holes
Challenge yourself with 18 holes of mini-putt. Our brand new course offers lots of fun. Concentrate on the tough holes and get a hole in one on the easy ones. Cost: $3.00/person
Our latest addition for kids is a new spinner. Makes you very dizzy if you go too fast.
Join us for some delicious mouth watering pizza.
Fireside Pizza is NOT open on a daily basis so check your schedule or with the front desk when you arrive to ensure you don't miss this opportunity.
One on One Court
To keep the basketball fans busy we have added a one on one court beside our mini putt. Basketballs are available for loan at the front office. Great way to get a work out before taking a dip in the pool.
Kiddie Play Structure
For the little ones we have a special play structure just for them. Lots of fun and challenges.
Due to COVID restrictions our waterslide is closed for the season.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
Come and join in our bubble fun.
We will be hosting foam parties on Saturday afternoons, as well as Tuesday and Thursday afternoon during July and August.
GEM Mining Station
GEMSTONE MINING Cardinal KOA's new mining sluice will offers all the excitement of panning for semi-precious gemstones in a sluiceway of rushing water similar to the gold rush days. By simply pouring a little mixing material into the sifter and swishing under the rushing water you discover natural gemstones, fossils or arrowheads. Fun and excitement for kids of all ages
