We had a fantastic time. Our cabin was very clean, the amenities are great. I couldn't get over how hard-working and friendly the staff is. Everything is so well maintained.

Very clean. Great for kids. I enjoyed my stay. Pool is heated. Lots to do for kids. Ice cream afternoon was great. Pizza made on site was delicious. Weather was not co-operating. Nor were the mosquitos.

I stayed in a deluxe cabin which was fantastic. The cabin and campground facilities were excellent for children. Negatives: facilities didn't open until 10am. I think this should be 8:00am. Also, i heard some staff members being unnecessarily rude to children on I'm more than one occasion. This leads me to recommend campsite with hesitation.

Amazing park. Management are stickers for the rules. Park is beautiful but further away from Ottawa attractions then is convenient.

Overall the cabin and everything was great, but I had a bad experience with one of the employees. They scolded me/my son for him having an accident outside the play structure. Honestly will most likely not return due to this. I'm not happy with employees who do not understand that kids will be kids. Thanks for the nice cabin though.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The scolding was not about your son having an accident (although he did pee right all over the entrance to the play structure) this was about your son showing his private parts to the other children because one of them made him mad. The other kids knew enough to advise an adult as to what was happening. This is not acceptable behavior for a children's playground.

Enjoyed our stay. We had lots of fun. However wish they had more activites for the kids. They had a movie night planned but got canceled and a session of bingo for kids to replace it but only 30 mins long.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for the last minute change in the schedule. Daniel fractured a bone in his leg and cannot stand on it. As a result he could not set up or take down the movie equipment so we had to change to the schedule. We apologize for the inconvenience this caused but we did not predict that he would break his leg.

This was our second year staying at KOA,Cardinal. As it was last year and this year, fantastic experience. Great staff always wanting to be of assistance to help and enhance our stay. Have already booked for next year. Our stay is longer stay after stay. Again thank you for all your support ensuring our stay is always a great one. See you next year. Jack Lindsay.

We rented a deluxe cabin and it was impeccable and well stocked. We had nothing but sunshine and there were many activities for the kids. We really enjoyed our stay @ Cardinal and plan on returning next year!!

It was really nice, liked that there were linens and towels which is not in every KOA cabins. Free movies, the pizza and chip wagon are really nice to have as well so we don't have to cook all the time. A spa for adults would be a nice plus.

Love it there, kids never want to leave.
Jul 17, 2017
First time at this KOA with multiple families and had a blast! kids loved the facility and all the activities,asked when going back. Staff was fantastic. The only thing I think needs improving is the pool was very murky to the point where kids could not be seen under water and could be dangerous when others are jumping in & for keeping an eye on little swimmers.
Jul 17, 2017
Excellent amenities and cabins. Nice quiet campground in the evenings. Lots for kids to do.
Jul 17, 2017
Great for kids
Jul 15, 2017
Cabin included everything we needed. Great place for family.
Jul 12, 2017
My sister came in for the 150 Canada Day celebration with her American friends. They were very impressed with the lodge and plan to come back when they are in the area again. My husband and I like this KOA, and plan on returning. I would still like to reimburse them for the damages I did to their newly planted grass. My thoughtlessness was inexcusable.
Jul 12, 2017
We had a great time and would definitely go back again.

Awesome family place. Great accommodations and service!

We stayed with four of our grandchildren in a cabin. Plenty of room for everyone. Tons of stuff to do with the kids. The place, is clean, safe and everyone is very friendly. We hope to go back soon.

Cabin was very clean. Front desk staff wasn't very friendly but we were very happy with the splash pad and all amenities for kids! Free DVD rental was appreciated. I will be back.
Jul 04, 2017
We camp at KOA every Canada Day long weekend, we started with just our family of 4 and now we are 5+ families that enjoy this great place together year after year. We always stay in the Cabins. So clean and comfortable, just about everything we need is already there for us. So much for kids to do, we never hear them complain they're board. Can't ask for a nicer family or staff to serve you.
Jul 04, 2017
Had a wonderful stay, the staff was fantastic, they went over and above to meet our every need.

Clean, quiet, lots of activities and friendly. Perfect place to bring family

This campground is clean, pool warm, excellent place for kids and the people who work there are so very nice. Unfortunately we had two cabin sites and they were both flooded for our stay, although it was drained once, fires were impossible and we were in 4-6" of water unloading and loading. Not much could be done... over all a very nice place to stay. AMAZING fireworks on Canada Day!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your understanding with the rain, it was beyond our control and we tried our best to help everyone deal with the water. So glad you liked the fireworks, Phil our son loves to do this show. Hope to see you again soon.

It was amazing! The kids had a blast despite the rain. Staff was friendly and helpful 😄

We stayed in a beautiful and comfy deluxe Lodge and it exceeded our expectations. The campground was very clean and well maintained, the staff was very friendly, and the owners Dan and Karen could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. We hope we can return soon. It is an excellent family friendly fun getaway!
Jun 19, 2017
Fantastic stay! My son did not want to go home; we will be back.
Jun 19, 2017
It was fantastic! Love all it has to offer for families and the rules, makes camping, a lot safer and enjoyable! Also, love the programs and activities provided! The best camping ground with everything you need! I would recommend and have... and we will return! Thank you!!

Our kids had a total blast. No problem putting them to bed at night, they were zombies by 8 pm. The mining center is a great idea, the kids had something to bring home with them for keep sake. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the grounds were kept spotless along with the washrooms. Overall a great place and will definitely be back.

Pool was great and cabin nice although didn't realize we wouldn't be able to cook in it. Also the cabin we reserved and put deposit on was given to someone else so we had to take different cabin. We were given a $45 discount to compensate but still feel the other people should have been the ones that had to move to other cabin. Besides that, it was pleasant weekend.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We did recognize the mistake and took action to correct it. The cabin you stayed in was exactly the same as the one you booked just two spaces over, so your experience would have been the same. The other guests were already settled into the cabin when the error was discovered. Best solution taken.
Jun 05, 2017
Always an active campground. Staff is delightful to deal with!
Jun 03, 2017
Awesome owners and staff! Beautiful wooded setting and soooooo much fun for kids. Can't wait to return. Loved their passion for KOA Care Camps too!
May 25, 2017
Great! We visit this KOA every Victoria Day weekend. Always appreciate the family oriented campground resort. Always super clean cabins. Great fun for kids. Convenience store always has the items I forget to bring. Love the staff. Thanks!!
May 24, 2017
Kids had a blast. Excellent service. Staying in deluxe cabin was comfortable and convenient. We'll be back.
May 23, 2017
We come back every Summer...amazing staff, activities, facilities and overall camping experience!!

Stayed in a log cabin which was clean and comfortable and very enjoyable. Only point to note is that there is no hanging space for clothes other than a couple of hooks. Will definitely consider booking again.

Another absolutely perfect long weekend at Cardinal KOA. The Halloween Thanksgiving is one of our favorite times of year. Thanks so much! Karyn & Tom Walker

We love staying in the cabins, wish there was discounts for non-peak season stays though, might get us out more. Owners are very hard working and it shows.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed the cabins. We do offer non-peak season rates from Sundays to Thursdays in September and October. Fridays and Saturdays are busy (peak days) and as such we are able to offer additional fun like our pumpkin walk and haunted house. These would not be possible at low season rates.
Oct 03, 2016
An improvement would be the ability to pick your cabin or campsite online

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We agree, we have asked KOA Corporate to add this to future software updates, hopefully it will happen in the near future. In the interim if there is a specific site/cabin you would like, you can request it in the Special Remarks section of the reservation, and we will do our best to fill it.

We came in late and they were most accommodating. We were even upgraded so that the park could keep us away from some less-than-quiet teenagers (and we were just looking for a place to lay down our tired heads!). Great people. Great place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you liked the upgrade from a Rustic to Deluxe cabin. We were hosting a Family Services group when you arrived. They were great guests, low maintenance and although some being teens we were worried about noise, we did not have any issues with them before or during quiet times.
