Cardinal / Ottawa South KOA Reviews

Campground Reviews

Sep 03, 2020
We stayed in a lodge at KOA Cardinal for the 2nd year in a row and had an absolutely fabulous time again. Their COVID safety measures were reassuring and we did not feel like we missed out on anything. Great amenities, friendly staff and fun programming make this a go to for a glamping getaway just a hop and a skip away from home in Ottawa. Many thanks to the whole crew!

We had a great stay!The campground was always clean and the staff made our stay very safe in this covid time. We felt confident with our stay and the standards for keeping the park clean was set high. We will definitely go back and stay longer the next time. Thank you to the staff that made our stay excellent and carefree. Keep up the great work!

We always enjoy our stay at this location. We’ve been to other locations but always come back here. The grounds are well kept, the staff are friendly, and my kids love it. We’ve been going there for about 4 years now and will continue.

Upgraded to larger cabin, and enjoyed the cleaning living spaces. Not having to pack linens, cooking equipment was worth the added cost. With covid still going on, the park still made it's best efforts to ensure daily activities occured. Our kids loved the bubble machine activity. We have been to 2 other koas and would recommend this one.

Extended our stay here from 4 nights to 33 nights and had an amazing time at the Cardinal KOA! We had a buddy site with friends, which made our stay even better as we faced each other. All of the staff were amazing, especially Sam!! Dan and Karen run an amazing campground, especially during Covid times. So many activities happening all while respecting Social distance guidelines. Best Vacay ever!

Considering all the covid rules they managed to find a way to make it work, keeping activities and making you feel safe, with very few disruptions. Staff remains friendly and helpful as always. My only wish is to have sewer sites if possible.

Lots to do here, most activities were for kids,it would be nice to have more adult activities.We did enjoy bingo&trivia!Clean & tidy place, well organized & had alot to offer.The only down side was, as we were enjoying our campfire were told twice to keep itdown & didnt feel that was necessary as we werent yellin or beingloud or obnoxious.Hopefully next visit they will relax a bit. Had Great time!

As usual, it was a great weekend considering the unusual rain we had. We were still able to do activities between rain storms. Great place to camp and I can't say enough about quiet time. Dedicated owners who care about their guests.

It was fantastic. Our cabin was clean and well equipped. The grounds had everything you could ask for, play structures, swimming pool, splash pad, mini golf, a bouncy pad, and a well stocked store. Lots of activities for the young, and the young at heart. I would definitely come again.

We booked for 2 nights. We had to delay visit at last minute due to Covid testing. Staff was very accommodating to allow us to move reservation without penalty till we were cleared. Also super nice front desk staff and employees. Pool was very clean. Bingo was fun. Bathrooms immaculate. Only thing is firewood was was overpriced 11$ for 6 small pieces and no kindling. It’s was dry tho.

You are not allowed to tie any rope/string/clothes line on the trees, so if you want to put a turf over your tent, you will have to basically peg them on the ground and be creative. The washrooms were kept clean at all times but the showers are kind a outdated compared to others. I wish the staff are a little bit more friendlier and accommodating like the other KOAs we’ve been.

We had a deluxe cabin booked for two nights, and I forgot to pack dishes/cutlery for our stay. The staff were amazing and gathered a full set of dishes, cups, mugs and utensils for us to borrow - allowing us to avoid buying disposable kitchen stuff. Very much appreciated! When the staff goes the extra mile to make their campers’ stay more enjoyable, it makes a big difference!

Very clean well maintained park. Lots of things for kids to do, nice dog park. The pizza and chip truck is a great idea. Staff was friendly, We would definitely stay here again and I would recommend the park to anyone staying in the area.

Great area, so many activities for the kids - our daughter had a fantastic time. Excellent COVID precautions. We would go back.

We always have a good time at Cardinal KOA!

We had a great time and were very pleased with the precautions you had in place. The cleanliness is beyond top-notch. Chip truck and pizza make mealtimes so much easier and fun for all of us. The highlight of our weekend (for us parents) was BINGO and Trivia... that guy was hilarious !!! And for the kids, bubble drop, the pool, and the bouncers. Thank you much, we'll be back.

Keep up the great work and thanks again

We had a great stay. Tons of things for our kids to do. Your staff work extremely hard and should be acknowledged for the effort they put forth. We were very impressed with the cleanliness, organization and safety measures you put in place. Not once did we feel unsafe! Great work!

So much to do and the facilities are kept clean and well cared for! They had activities day and night for kids and adults, amazing play areas, a warm pool... And I guess the theme our weekend was chocolate as we received a plate of treats drizzled in delicious chocolate. The sites were spacious and comfortable with the sand box for the tent. We will go back for sure!!
