New management but the campground needs far to much work still. Pools were cold. I playground was newer but another was very old and rundown. Definitely not like the other Koa's we've been too.
Jul 05, 2017
We made the best of our stay here but a lot of the sites were very muddy. We found both the indoor and outdoor pool to be too cold. The store was good and pleasant people to deal with. Overall, not horrible but not the best either.

Although the new owners were very accommodating due to the weather conditions. I found the park not up to KOA standards, the minigolf course is in disrepair is at least 20 years old we spent our honeymoon there in 1997. I found the kid's parks bad, 1 flooded and 1 very old with dangerous equipment. The indoor pool frigid and the hot tub locked with no instructions on entering.

still needs plenty of work on the lots. Prices are still not very good .This used to be the most affordable place to camp .not sure i'll be back soon.
Jul 05, 2017
Despite the rain and soggy conditions, we had a great time. Water gun fights, wagon rides, movie nights, and swimming.

Will be a nice park once it's all finished. Mini putt needs work and so does the rc track. It would be nice if there was one of the bouncy pillows that the other KOAs have. We will be coming back. Roy was very accommodating, our site was to wet to stay at so he picked us up on his golf cart and showed us better sites. Thanks Roy

We enjoyed our stay - nothing you can do about the rainy spring weather that made the campground quite muddy and messy. Looks like it was perhaps overbooked and sticking trailers where ever they can because some sites were flooded. Overall, not bad.

I thought the amenities were misleading. The minigolf was in dreadful shape, the campsite parking spot was too close to the firepit. The staff were great, but the facilities were shabby. The indoor pool was greatly appreciated, while the outdoor pool was way too cold. The tuck-shop should sell coffee, a keurig wouldn't break the bank. The playground swere flooded and one looked in disrepair.

Thank you very much. We will see if we can find a way to make it clearer on our website that wifi is a charge. Thanks for your comments on our pool.

Always a good time and extremely helpful and friendly staff. Love the new upgrades too! Keep up the good work.

We have been going to Marmora KOA for many years now, just as weekend campers. We were back a few weeks ago, and were very happy to learn that all the negative publicity that has been placed on this location to be far from the truth. Love the changes Roy has made so far, and can not wait to see the transformation over the next few years. will be our permanent location in the next few years.....

This was one of my favorites before . Spent a very muddy weekend. The layout has changed and sites were a mess. The desk clerk was very polite and accommodating..the new owner not so much. The new transient sites are terrible. Maybe that will improve with time.it was at best OK.

Thank you for taking the time to review. And we appreciate that feedback so much. Knowing what bothers people is the only way to make things better.

This KOA is a work in progress but it will be a gem. Roy has done a lot of work so far. Where else can you get an indoor and outdoor pool. Roy goes above and beyond to ensure his guests enjoy their stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you very much. I know Roy and our team are working hard to improve things and your positivity and encouragement helps keep us motivated in the hard times.

under new management, sites were poor state, most under repair, our site was more mud than grass, deep ruts, 20cm deep pot holes, we picked up more than a dozen nails and screws where a deck had been dismantled.Staff mowed lawn on our site during supper and drove mower between our camper and vehicle and sent grass on the vehicle -I moved vehicle to next site so wouldn't damage it on second pass!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your feedback. This is truly helpful for knowing how to correct and improve in the future. We are working diligently to improve the sites and we will change how the staff maintain the property as well.

This is now an Amaxing KOA....top of our list to stay at. The staff was excellent and attentive. They host, Roy made everyone feel like part of a family. They activities were great, my grandchildren can't wait to go back. 1st class park, so clean a d well kept...parts are in construction which means it's only getting better yet...wow, best Father's Day weekend yet. Big thanks to Roy and his staff.
Jun 22, 2017
We enjoyed our weekend despite some rain. The pool was great. Lots of activities for the kids. The bathrooms were very clean. The changes that are happening will make the park very user friendly. The staff are great and always available. We will definitely be back.

The campground is very nice and our site was right across from the park and indoor pool. The outdoor pool was closed so we couldn't see that and the bathroom floors were very wet and slippery the whole three days we were there. But very nice staff and nice campground. Would stay again if we were in the area.

Amazing transformation!! Very clean grounds friendly staff, wasn't anything that they could have done better!only problem was that the weekend ended too quickly! Amenities were the best of any other Koa we have stayed at, couldn't ask for anything more! Keep up good work see you soon
Jun 20, 2017
A yearly tradition to go to Marmara KOA the same weekend every year for the last 7 years. There has been some changes and upgrades done since the new owner took over. The pool is so much nicer and the new hot tub now that they have been replaced. The kids loved movie night. Everyone was friendly.
Jun 20, 2017
I enjoyed the friendly owners/staff!
Jun 20, 2017
Very enjoyable friendly owners and staff
Jun 20, 2017
Dreadful. Will never be back. Should have taken the reviews into more consideration and have not gone to the marmora KOA.

We had a fantastic weekend. Management was very accommodating, very involved with us campers. Clean facilities, sites were clean and very well kept,will recommend KOA Marmora to all our friends.
Jun 07, 2017
The Kate start to the season was obvious with all the work being done around the campground. The rubbish/recycling area needs attention.
Jun 05, 2017
We had a fantastic time. We were unsure as last year we didn't have a good time but a lot has been changed and it was fantastic. They even helped celebrate my daughter birthday with a card and a balloon she felt so special. Roy is fixing so many things that were broken and in disrepair. It's being renovated as we speak so isn't 100% but the vision and portential is amazing we are hoping to return
Jun 05, 2017
What a great family weekend we had at Marmora KOA ! Staff were all friendly and helpful. Because of the bad weather this spring, some upgrades and winter clean up was not yet completed. But, our family really enjoyed amenities like rental bikes, hayride, bingo and pplaygrounds. Indoor pool was still cold, but our wee ones still liked it. Really good campground ! Thanks !
Jun 05, 2017
Lots of fun, pool wasn't open yet but we still made it a fun visit.
Jun 05, 2017
I understand that this campground is undergoing a renovation but I can't accept the ignorance that the owner shows the minute you disagree with him, he is not organized at all and nothing is his problem it's always on the camper, and the indoor pool is cold is an outdoor pool in January, plus the black mold on the ceiling is just gross, I will not return to this KOA until it's under new management

Enthusiastic and friendly staff. Did their best to accommodate however they were battling Mother Nature and quite a few of the sites were in very poor condition.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you. It has been a very wet year indeed.

our stay was good we like it there its quit going back in july, but he needs to fix up one thing at a time, but we liked our stay it is nice there he is fixing up the camp ground looks good, but one thing at a time slow down , he is a very nice man that owns the koa he always made sure our stay is good , thanks the lady with the glasses is very nice keep her around ,

Location is great. 5 min drive to Madoc, Ontario which has a state of the art skate park for teens and toddlers with splash pad and three story play structure. The KOA is large enough for the kids to adventure and ride thier bikes and not get bored. Owner is working hard to change and the potential is there. Weather has been terrible this year and preventing work. Pool was cool park is ok.

Spent 3 nights at this KOA last week, and it is totally under renovation. Unfortunately it had rained for many days, and the park was a mud bog, Long walk to dispose of garbage . Internet did not work at sites, but had to go into the building to use it. Complained everyday re internet but was not offered any refund. The park will be wonderful when it is finished, and dries up. Perfect for ATVS

Park not in proper condition to be open for the May long weekend. The heated indoor pool isn't. Trailer was not completely functional. Staff were polite and attentive though.
May 27, 2017
I think this park will be wonderful once your vision has been completed. It seems like a lot of the park is under construction and some spots looked rather desolate. We did find all the staff we encountered to be super helpful and friendly. And the owner was always present which is nice
May 27, 2017
-they booked more trailer then sites available. -rude owner -unorganized -very muddy sites -bathroom were dirty -they say pool was heated but very COLD 72* -when we booked we had request to be near the playground, we told site A10 when we got there they gave it away and we were put in very muddy seasonal site. -it wasn't prepared for the weekend. -will NEVER return

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am truly sorry that you had such a bad experience. I can't imagine how that must have been. We are working at hiring new staff and improving the grounds so this will never happen again. I hope that you will give us another chance.
May 26, 2017
Improvements are happening at this previous run down koa. Roy is certainly trying. It's a lot cleaner. Long as he keeps working at it he will have a great place
May 26, 2017
Disaster!!! This place should not be a KOA!! Not the usual amenities and cleanneness you normally get. Pool ice cold, mud campsites without any grass. Garbage all over the campground. I found staff to be ok. I will not return to this campground.
May 26, 2017
The owner, Roy I believe, actually called a teenage boy a terrible name in front of my children
May 26, 2017
Sites are undeveloped since seasonals all left ? Buried extension cords provide power ??? Not safe ?? No garbage cans anywhere ! Washroom locked overnight , guy on bullhorn continually yelling about come and buy there food ,not what most campers want , overall not a good experience
May 26, 2017
Well first off we travelled from London Ontario. We arrived on site at 830pm only to find our site was a mud hole. Our truck and little tent trailer sunk in the grass. It took 6 people that were camping near by to help us get our truck off the site, only to have the park owner get mad at us for ruining his site that was clearly not ready for us.
