The campsite was incredibly clean. Staff were friendly, helpful, and genuinely focused on customer service. Great value for money and we will be back again.

The ground and the activities are very good. My only and big concern is mosquitoes ....KOA should do something about them....the spray doesn't work on them....

Fantastic! Lots of amazing activities for the kids - waterslids, foam pit, bikes, Rock bags, playground, pool were all a hit. Everything is close, sand pad tent site was great! Very clean. Loved the outdoor sink for washing dishes, it's a good size. Highly recommended, we absolutely loved our stay. We will be back.

Best KOA I've ever stayed at. The kids had a great time, lots of activities and things for them to do. The owners were hands on and very nice to deal with. The only complaint I have which is beyond their control was a family with two young twins less than two years old that cried most of two nights. We were in a tent and they were next to us, they should have stayed home. It was unfair to all of u

It was awesome! The personnel is really nice, polite, always smiling and very helpful. There's always something to do for the kids so I can't really complain :) THANK YOU!

Great place for kids. My boys love our annual trip to Cardinal. Friendly staff, clean and lots to do.

Everything was excellent and extremely clean. The only suggestion would be to sell your firewood dry, it was completely soaked.

Our first time camping at a KOA and it was PHENOMENAL! We all had such a wonderful time. The kids had so many things to do and the grounds itself were so well maintained. Will definitely be back! Thanks for a nice long weekend!

We loved it! Will definitely be going back.

The campsite was awesome, plenty of help around when a question needed answering. The only real problem we had was that even being quiet around the campsite, we were told we were too loud and that we couldn't keep our second car on the campsite which had plenty of room for said car.

We had a fantastic time there. So much to do for our 3 year old, and my husband and I spent hours on the jumping pillows as well! Downsides are: The pool was was extremely cloudy. Power outage. Cost of wood- We stayed one night and had to get 2 bundles of wood. We will definitely be going back in September!

We had a great time but pool water was little cold for little ones.

As always, a lovely spot with lovely people who clearly want your vacation to be great. Kids love this place, so much fun and relaxation combined.

Enjoyed the warm pool, the go-carts and the quiet nights at this safe and well organized KOA

The staff was friendly, and generally happy you were there, it was a nice change to have staff acknowledge you, and ask if you need anything. My kids had a great time swimming and going on the jumping pillows, and I had a chance to relax by the pool. Also very clean grounds, washrooms, play areas. Very impressed!


We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back! Travel Safely

Had a great time, lots of activities for the kids. Very clean kampground - will go back for sure!

Very expensive for visitors, actually less expensive for a site instead of just visiting.


We are definitely expensive for visitors, this is on purpose. On a busy weekend we have 500-600 people on site. They have paid to use the facilities and participate in the activities. If we did not charge a large amount we would have too may people and our campers could not enjoy what they paid for.

Great campground. Owners and workers were all very friendly, kind, helpful and positive. Lots of great activities through the day for kids. Campground rules are well enforced. Lovely setting. Dog park was a cool bonus.

je donne un 2 etoiles non pas pour l'endroit qui lui meme est superbe pour les jeunes enfants avec leurs installations. Le tres mauvais service de la part des proprios qui traitent les gens comme de la ... ils sont antipatique et n'on aucune base du service a la clientele. JAMAIS je n'y retournerais et ne recommanderais cet endroit a personne.

A second wonderful stay and can't say enough great things about this place.. Love it! This weekend fireworks and activities just wonderful. Thanks to owners who really care about their campers.. We will be back!!!

Very nice family campground. Very child orientated. On the negative side: Rules are over enforced making stay a little less enjoyable. My daughter was told to get off her bike as she rode to bathroom because quiet time is from 11PM and 8AM. She was not making any noise or bothering anyone. Perhaps some consideration?

Mens bathroom needs lower sinks or a stool for kids, as well as a diaper changing table. The one sleeping unit per site rule was a problem, we have two very small tents.

Clean. Friendly. Awesomest place on earth according to my kids.

Amazing time! Even with a campfire ban in place due to drought conditions, we had a fabulous time. Thank you!!

Lots of activities for the kids, great atmosphere. thanks

This is our second time coming and we will be back. Our kids love all the fun activities and the campground is very clean and the staff are friendly.

Campground was tidy, as were the facilities. Lots were a nice size. We had to vacate the pool and playground whenever the smelly dumping station next to the pool was being used.

Clean campground. Friendly employees. We found the pool rather small, shallow.

It's an annual tradition that just keeps going... now the "kids" are 11, 14 and 16. Great spot, clean, friendly staff, spacious sites, lots of activities. Just great.

This is my second season at a KOA. Both seasons have been at the Cardinal location since they are so amazing to my family. My daughter never wants to leave. The staff are very friendly, generous, and accommodating. Makes it difficult to try different locations when this one provides superior customer service. I will be booking my stay for next year.

kids paradise i would say.They have strict noise/fire rules which I liked as well:)
