Campground Reviews

Jun 13, 2018
Bill and Joan were wonderful, very friendly and accomodating! The other staff were terrific as well! We loved our stay and can't say enough! We will be back! (In fact, we left to drive a little farther, stayed for a sad night at a not-so-great hotel (because the KOA Barrie closed too early, at six, and we had no way of going there without a credit card) and came back to Sault Ste Marie KOA!

It is so clean, washrooms, showers, everything. We only stayed one night. Wish we could have stayed longer. The young man behind the counter that showed us to our campsite was so polite and accommodating. Thank you for a great stay. Only regret was that it was so short Tina Cave

Thank you so much for your kind comments. We're happy that you enjoyed your stay. We will be sure to pass along your praise to Mike at the front desk; he is one of KOA's finest! Please come and see us again!

Really great showers, very large, clean and my sister in law really appreciated the handicapped shower since she walks with a cane...regular shower could use a bench to sit on in the changing area

It was amazing. All staff were friendly, helpful and respectful The amenities are second to none. Washrooms, showers and laundry was spotless. The leash free dog area was a unexpected bonus and a welcomed by our black lab after hours on the road. Wonderful Thank you. We will be back.

Owner was very helpful and grounds are well cared for quiet at night but the mosquitoes were absolutely awful bring lots of bug spray

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When camping in a forest environment at this time of year, you will encounter bugs and mosquitoes. To give the campground a low rating because of nature is puzzling.

I think it was a lovely camp ground and our site was nice, our preference is for a more built out fire set up, otherwise the site was perfect.

Excellent 2nd stay. We really like it here

Nice place, friendly people.

Unfortunately there were a lot of mosquitoes and caterpillars there. The staff was friendly and helpful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed the park and staff. Mosquitoes in Northern Ontario should be expected especially in May and June. To penalize the park with low ratings for nature in a campground is puzzling.

Only one night, check in quick and easy with courteous staff, washrooms/showers very clean and modern.

Meilleur KOA visité jusqu’à présent! Les blocs sanitaires sont absolument impeccables! Personnel accueillant et professionnel! Tous est propre et très bien entretenu!

It’s a lovely campsite. Has lots of amenities. The day I came it was raining caterpillars and there were lots of bugs. I paid for an rv wash that I had to abandon because of the caterpillars. Was surprised that it wasn’t refunded. The male staff member was dismissive and defensive. I would have to really think about staying again. Was shocked given my positive experience at Thunder Bay

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is the time of the year for caterpillars and mosquitoes. We're sorry that they affected this guest's camping enjoyment, but it is all part of what Mother Nature gives us. This guest was able to complete the RV wash despite the bugs in the area.We did reduce the RV wash fee to $5 min for this guest. Free would not even satisfied.

J ai trouver que l accueil était parfait et le personnel parfait il y beaucoup de travail d accompli sur ce terrain incroyable majestueux félicitations

We assume that it is because it is early June but the mosquitoes were herendous! Paid for a deluxe patio with barbeque, patio set, swing chair, etc but could be outside for more than a few minutes at a time due to the bugs even though the weather was sunny and warm. They were also excavating the sites beside us so that always stirs up the bugs too. We are also a little offended about the $7 per

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have no control over the mosquitoes; we are in a forest in Northern Ontario. The sites two rows over from this site were having gravel put on them (which I assume is what this guest is referring to as excavation), and did not increase the mosquito count.

The Sault Ste Marie KOA is the cleanest, most organized, friendly, obliging, up-to-date and well maintained facility of any KOA campground we have stayed in and probably of any state, provincial or private campground we have been in. The location was great... but the directions in the KOA Directory were difficult to follow. Many thanks for a great stay!
Jun 02, 2018
Lovely grounds and facilities. We will go there for sure.
Jun 02, 2018
Really nice campsite but there isn’t much to do or see in the area. One day is enough. This time of the year the mosquitos made it a hassle to stay outside.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you didn't speak to our front desk staff for things to see and do in the area. There are so many things in this beautiful area of Northern Ontario; we're sorry you missed it all.

campsite was nice, the people were all great. the showers were new and wonderful. only issue was that the internet was spotty in our corner of the campground. basically unusable unless we went over and sat under the antenna.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize; during your stay, our internet and cable provider had an outage intermittently one afternoon, which made the reception spotty. It is normally a very strong signal.Over 250G of data transferred by guests during this guest's stay.

We got to our site but, could not enjoy our time because the mosquitoes were so bad. The sites open with no privacy. We had to go out to dinner. We woke up and raced out the next morning. I must say though, the bathroom was very clean and the showers were awesome!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The large site these guests were on has trees on both sides, with complete privacy from neighbouring sites. And yes, we have mosquitoes in Northern Ontario, in our forest.

Beautiful spot with glorious views of Mackinaw Straits! Nice flat sites, delightful manager, laundry, but no cable. Would return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This comment was meant for another campground, and does not relate to Sault Ste. Marie. We are about an hour north of Mackinaw Straits, and we do have cable TV.

Amazing, thanks for the help with the medical emergency that we had. You were quick, efficient, organised and aware of what had to be taken care of. The site is clean, and enjoyable for everyone. We will be back.

Welcomed like family and treated like royalty for the whole weekend. We couldn't be more pleased with our stay at SSM KOA. spotless grounds, peaceful setting, great for families. We rented deluxe cabins, rustic cabins and 30A sites for our family reunion stay. Everything was perfect. Thanks for a great stay, Bill + family.
