Campground Reviews

Sep 09, 2019
Nice location on river, Camping cabins nicely co- located with tent sites. Cabin had a dorm size frig with freezer. Had adequate microwave. Pretty garden outside the registration building.Staff was welcoming and friendly..Clean restrooms.. A few negatives: Drive-in movie theatre screen faces campground; minimal noise from highway, camp store not well stocked, no chair or writing surface inside.

We did NOT stay at Sussex KOA for Balloon Fiesta 2019. I understand the cancellation policy on this busy weekend BUT we where coming from Halifax area where the entire province of Nova Scotia was bracing for Hurricane Dorian to hit. Due to these extreme weather conditions I feel it’s appropriate to at the very least issue a partial refund.

I hate to give bad reviews but this place was party central. Most campers here were full time seasonal - which I understand the economics. There were three different very loud parties going on within sight of our campsite. I'm talking outdoor speakers, patio lights, and lots of adults. When I looked at the quiet time, it was MIDNIGHT TO 8. This was not a quiet place to spend the night.

Very pleasant. Just be aware that although the pull-through sites are very large, you will be forced to locate very close to one end (front of site) as that is where the water/sewer/electrical are located. Also beware that most of those sites are right next to the jumping pad, playgroung, and bathrooms. Not very private or quiet.

1st season tenting and over 3 trips, we spent 9 nights and loved every minute of our experience.

Very crowded. Pull thru sites were challenging to get out of when leaving.

I believe I was overcharged and when I asked the attendant he just avoided the answer. When I was on line the rate was lower and that’s what I told him. They charged me like $73.00 less 10% discount but I told him the on line rate was like $57.00 not happy about that.

Hello, based on the lot that you occupied there is no $57 rate. It is $64.10 + tax. If you are a VKR member than you receive 10% off this price.

Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The facilities were clean and the grounds were nice. We stayed twice during our trip because of the convenience.

Nice Campground , people were great, Tent sites are small, had to upgrade to a tent trailer site, too close to the interstate, noisy, plus train tracks, at least the train came through everyday around 7pm so that wasn't to bad, don't forget anything not a lot of supplies and stuff at the store on site. crazy rules for the jumping pillow?Bathrooms and showers need a upgrade, overall not to bad.....

General manager Ron went out of his way to assist in helping me to back up.

Our stay was great, Nice quite spot. Although the site could have been a little more level. But i would recommend this KOA very clean.

Grand terrain avec beaucoup de monde. Beaucoup de saisonnier Accueil chaleureux Séjour de une nuit .

Staff was very friendly, they do not communicate with one another. The facility should not be called a campground since the majority of the sites are occupied by full time, older shabby campers & units. They advise 50 amp sites, but there are none available because the permanent units occupy all of them. Very rutted & unlevel grass sites are the norm. No cable. Not worth the exorbitant prices

Like most campgrounds in Atlantic Canada, 50% are comprised of "Seasonals" and the remainder "Weekender" Traffic. There is not enough business to support a "Weekender" only Campground in this region unlike many places that you are accustomed to in the US.

Very friendly and accommodating staff at all times. The sites for larger RV’s needs to be leveled better. When our jacks are down the tires come off the ground. Not safe. RV could roll

Nice site just what a weary traveler needed.

Great amenities and being near the drive in was amazing! Great place to stay

Sites are great and grass is nice, drive in is a bonus, the cleanliness of washrooms isn’t the greatest and they need more showers

Advertised as KOA/Drive un but didn't find out you’re required to drive into the drive-in to watch. Did not have shade for parents to sit at pool/playground. No lounge chairs at pool. Parents have to sign out key for jumping pillow and all of the kids flock to it when you do. You have to ask them all to leave when you leave/lock up. Didn’t have activities like most KOAs. Not likely to return.

Sorry for your misunderstand but a "Drive In" implies that you must "Drive In" with your car/truck. We have many scheduled activities during the weekend for our campers, during the week the traffic is lighter and less participation in these types of activities.

This was our fifth year staying in the cabins. Always a great time with lots of things to keep the kids busy. Can't wait until next year!

Super friendly.

We were so disappointed with the staff and their insistence on carrying out the ridiculous rules of a 2:00 check in when it was quite obvious the space was vacant. After traveling 250 miles all we wanted to do was set up camp an hour early. We would have been willing to pay an early check-in fee. They made our guests move their car when there wasn't another car in sight. NO PEOPLE SKILLS! �

Hi, we have two hours to groom sites from check out to check in which means cleaning fire pits, maintenance, mowing, garbage, etc. Like hotels, sometimes we can permit early check-in and sometimes we can not. Please book your stay keeping in mind timelines.

At first reading the reviews online, a little uncertain that we should book a night, however after meeting one of your seasonal on the highway coming into Sussex, very glad we took his advice, I would stay here again.

Couldn’t get internet at our sight supposed to be working on it still. Park in the middle of nowhere hours to go anywhere. Drive in movie on site but still cost $25:00 a couple unless you camp the first road then it’s $200.00 a season not fair to others no discounts. Fire ban in effect but seasonals still had fires with no penalties brought to there attention they said oh well

Our site is 29 minutes from Fundy National Park and an hour to the Fundy Trail, two of the major attractions in the area. We just upgraded to Fiber Wi-Fi and added 7 high powered AP's in the last week to improve the coverage from the DSL available last year. $25 at the movies gives you two for the price of one and the people in the front row pay a premium royalty to watch, its not free!

Nice park. Friendly staff.

Our space at Sussex was adequate for our 5th wheel. However, when we left some maneuvering was involved in avoiding an evergreen tree which had been planted near the roadway and on a corner. Campground was clean and quiet in the evening. The promised wifi was non-existent. Even the office space did not allow success for getting online. The suggested gazebo space needed cleanup.

Location of the KOA was great. The staff was exceptional. Very very helpful. The cabin was lovely. However the latching and locking system of the cabin doors needs to be improved. It would also be useful to have a shelf or table in the cabin. Most cabins we have stayed in at other KOA have also provided a porch swing or seating which would be nice as well.

Stayed for a one night stopover. Just long enough to realize that this is a beautiful park with lots to offer... even a drive in movie theatre on site!
