Campground Reviews

Great time. I found our site level could be improved. Gravel was uneven. Staff and activities were amazing .

Heureusement que les anciens propriétaires sont venus faire l’Halloween sinon il y aurait pas eu les belles activités pour l’Halloween. Malheureusement je n’ai pas réservé mon lot pour l’an prochain car le prix est beaucoup trop élevé c’est presque 100$ par nuit c’est beaucoup trop dispendieux

This was our first stay under the new ownership. All of the amenities remain the same though there seemed to be a bit of confusion and delay sometimes with orders, (wood for example, waited almost an hour for delivery and had to go ask again for it). The main staff though, Tan and his brother, are extremely friendly and polite and quick to aid with any inquires or concerns. It'll get better.

Been going there for this weekend for 4 years now. Was disappointed to see that the haunted house was not there. The pumpkins were much smaller than precious years and the staff did not seemed knowledgeable at all in fact they looked lost and couldn't help with simple questions and had to run to the owner to ask. Frankly disappointed this year uncertain if my group and I will be returning next

Stayed for Thanksgiving weekend. Stay was ok. Have to say the old owners are missed. Cold weather put a damper on this year too. This has been an annual tradition for our family. Not sure about next year. We enjoy the Halloween events (there was no haunted house or bingo), although we aren't clear on whether they will continue next year. Things seemed relatively clean, which is good.

Bonjour Nous allons à ce camping KOA (cardinal) depuis environ 20 ans et cette année fût très particulière. Pourquoi le terrain de camping était à demi rempli alors qu’il était à pleine capacité depuis au moins 10 ans. L’atmosphère moins fébrile et activités d’Halloween simple. Ou était les nouveaux propriétaires pour accueillir leurs invités? Pizza décevante (pâte et ga

Lovely weekend in one of the lodges. Some things need to be repaired and we informed the owner. Not as many activities as in previous years but it is new owners and they need to settle in and develop their own routine. All in all a good weekend.

There were some ups and downs with service this year. New owners , I understand, but some items weren’t being addressed in a reasonable time. Overall still a good campground and highly recommended for families with young children

We've been going for the Thanksgiving weekend for 4 years in a row. We appreciate the Halloween theme and the activities. We enjoyed the 2022 edition even if there was less emphasis put on the haunted house activity. Cardinal/Ottawa South is conveniently located and a well-managed/maintained property.

Stayed in a Deluxe Cabin (Full Bath with Shower), Patio Kottage. Super CLEAN; very impressed with level of care taken to ensure all conveniences e.g. extra towel bars, soap, bbq propane, and hooks. Keurig machine, tons of towels, clean pillows/sheets, comfortable beds. Enjoyable activity schedule and facilities. Wifi throughout campground. Staff super helpful and friendly. A+++

You have a wonderful park, however, we did find that it was over priced. Other KOAs in NB and NS were just a little over $40.00 and were just as nice!

They did up Halloween a fantastic job. The kids loved it. The only not so good thing was the people beside us were extremely noisy Friday and Saturday night till 1:00-1:30 in the morning ��

The new owner obviously took no lessons from the old team. We come every year for the Halloween festivities, renting two RV spots and three cabins. The show they put on was a pale comparison to previous years. The trikes were in storage and on Sunday they only brought the Honey Wagon out for 30 minutes leaving people to line up for over an hour to dump thier tanks. We will go elsewhere next year!

Change of ownership makes all the difference! We used to only go once a year for the Halloween weekend. Now that the new owners are so nice it will be a go to campground. And we camp a lot.

Had a wonderful weekend at the Cardinal Koa. It was great to see so many trailers participate in the weekend theme and decorate for Halloween. The planned Halloween events had been scaled down from past years (the haunted house was just a maze now) but it was still a lot of fun. They need to go back to having 2 pump station with staff at departure - that took way too long with just 1 line.

Water pressure in the showers could have been better

1st stay with the new owners, the store has very limited hours 10-6 on a wknd is not ok. I had to beg the owner for wood at 8pm when they were still in the ofc. mining was broken in the am but worked in PM. The activities were well run, but contracted out to last years staff we heard. Soft play was broken, bathrooms were not clean, bikes were not available. Still had fun, but room for improvement.

We have been camping at this KOA for many years & keep going back for the activities and how fun the theme weekends are! We noticed a few minor changes since the new owners took over (no kid’s bingo and the prizes for the contests are different) but still a lot of fun! A couple recommendations are that the rules be enforced more (dog running around campsites and noise) and the store be open lat

We had a great time! Tons of activities for the kids I love that you can charge things to the room vs having to carry cash or credit, so convenient Clean site. We plan on returning next year

We usually quite enjoy staying at KOA's, but disappointed with our last stay. Prices have substancially increased and nothing to show for it and its juste a 2 service campground. Halloween week-end events quality was reduced. People in our area were partying for 1/2 the night and no did anything about loud noises and the extensive pot smells. For $100/night, its very unlikely that we will return.

Was very well organized. Site was easy to get in and get out of. Staff was very polite and professional. Kids activities were very well organized. Already reached out to two friends of ours to get together here next year for the Halloween weekend.

Some confusion at check in and again at checkout. I was sent a closing receipt meant for site B07 , new owners are working the kinks out I am sure that next year I will once again give it a 10

The cabins were very clean, great comfortable bed, that's important for a great nights sleep. Well stocked for cabins, clean towels etc. We enjoyed our stay, THANK YOU Friendly staff too!

Price is to high for services offered. Poor internet. Not competitive with private RV vs Parks.

Overpriced for off season. Was the most expensive KOA we have stayed in our entire trip east. 69.00 No sewer at site. Parked in a playground field.

Stayed for 2 days in a new trailer…rained both days!

the site was great, however, we bought wood at the office and we were told it would be delivered to our site. we left for dinner and came back to have a fire and there was no wood left at our site. the office was closed at this point so we could not ask to get our wood.

Nice large and level sites close to the 401. Its about a 50 min drive into Ottawa, 15-20 min to local restaurants.

Lots is activities on Sat. The washrooms and bathrooms are very clean.

With a change of owners, this KOA has gone downhill. We stayed from Thurs Aug 8th to 11th. Was a promotion for KOA members that if you paid Friday night then Saturday night was free. Wouldn't honor this for us because we checked in on Thursday. Secondly, office hours of 10 to 6 are ridiculous for a campground. Impossible to check in, get firewood, and order food. Pool not clean and chemicals off.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our 2 Grandsons. Looking forward to returning next season.

I don't know if they were short staffed but in terms of cleaning, it was lacking in some parts. (Pool, women's bathroom, play structures). New owners and I think they are still getting the hang of it. The chip truck wasn't open so we had to scramble to make dinner. Good thing we had extra food for that evening.
