I found the cabins quite pricey for not having a bathroom in them. Our over all experience was good and we would stay again just maybe not in the cabins.

I stayed in other KOA sites and was pleased, but the one in Sussex wad a first and last time i will be staying there. When i went to the front desk i asked for a bag of ice and was told that to do a purchase that i had to buy a minimum of 15$ with my debit/visa. Plus the lots were too open, no privacy between the sites.

Sorry, we are charged minimums by the merchants and have to pass it along for smaller transactions.

Our second time here. Very clean. Everyone friendly. Quiet respectful campers. Walking distance to town for restaurants and shopping.

This was our second weekend trip to Sussex KOA, and we found it to just as good as our first, the staff are very pleasant, the camping neighbors are very friendly and helpful. The grounds and amenities are very good.

This was a friendly, clean, amazing campground. The pool was freezing - but I suppose that is what you get for mid to late august ;)

Found grass to be unkempt, bathrooms were ticked off as being cleaned at appointed times but no paper towels in Men’s bathroom for several hours, same spider webs in women’s bathrooms for length of stay. sewage donuts mandatory but noticed most did not have them in our area. Halloween event was great fun. Pool water was freezing cold. Recycling and garbage overflowing. Kids had fun!

We held back on cutting grass so it wouldn't burn out! It's been an extremely dry summer. Garbage dumpsters are enclosed and out of site, often campers throw the garbage on top without placing it in the dumpster and it creates this untidy sight on late Sundays. We try to educate everyone!

had a great time, bathrooms were clean, and lots were a good size.. could have had more seating around pool area..had an amazing time and we will most likley return one day ..thanks for a great weekend

Thank you for your kind words. Our pool furniture was new to the pool this year, we hope to add more next year. Of course we were trying to space guest out with the chairs being 6' apart, due to Covid-19 public health guidelines. We hope to see you again in the near future!

We really enjoyed our stay. Everyone was so kind and friendly. I loved that there were proper bathrooms, running water and an electrical outlet close to the unserviced tent lots. Some places I have gone to only have a portipotty type toilet close to unsecured lots. The only complaint I have is how close the lots are to each other. There isn't much privacy but the playground and pool were close by!

Very peaceful, private a place to relax and have a break from the mad world we live in. It is handy to many sight seeing places and activities as well as many places to shop in the beautiful town of Sussex. While driving in Sussex we found drivers very considerate and courteous. Well satisfied, thank you.

Very clean facilities. Reason my recommendation rate is middle-of-the-road is just our preference for wooded and more private campsites. The campground provided the amenities and sites were as to be expected for the type of campground it is. Firepit locations dug into the ground seem a little dangerous - people can stumble into them without anything higher as barriers.

Check-in was easy, staff was friendly, our site was located close to the washrooms, the washrooms were nice, having the Drive-in right at the campground was a bonus. It was all good.

Loved seeing your comment, thank you for joining us this summer. We hope you return soon!

just loved everything there! lovely first meeting at the front desk. There were 3 young ladies and they were fabulous. I have not had a good check-in like that before! love that there is a dog park, it is small but does the trick. It is cool to see the drive in next door, makes you remember the old days. Great public washrooms and lots of dogs and kids. Old school campground

It was great! We stayed in one of the cabins, there was a good size play area for the kids. The pools and playgrounds weren't far away. Couple of small complaints, the washroom nearest us ran out of paper towel and it took a while for it to get refilled even after letting someone know. The people in the cabin next to us were loud and kids were outside playing as late as 3:00am! No security went by
Aug 19, 2020
The neighbours we had used our power outlets as well as their own so we had no power at our site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comment. Did you address this with the office so we could look after the matter for you? I apologized this happened to you.

We were only in for one night on our way to Campobello Island! The pull throughs are great although a little expensive. The check in staff were very friendly and inviting. Looking forward to staying longer next time!

We had a great time camping there. lots to do, and a very clean facility. The Nature Trail is a real bonus, it's so nice back there by the river. We will be back soon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing our campground for your summer memories. The nature trail will be our ongoing project over the next few seasons. Please keep checking back for updates, such as walking trails along the river!

The campground was amazing the people were very friendly but you sure know that people are tripling there cost on items like the mini propane tanks and the spot that I had to have a pull through because I have a big 5th wheel and the tree right at the end of the pull through made it very difficult to get out I actually had to remove the ring and drive across another campground spot

First time staying at a KOA campground. Reserved a serviced lot but servicing wasn't clearly marked at my site. Went back to gatehouse for clarification, was told everything was ok and to hook up at the site. Later on another trailer setup on adjacent lot and told me that they had the servicing. Was glad my family stayed for only one night instead of multiple nights like we originally had planned.

Spent 6 nights here and we loved our stay. Bathrooms were always clean. Staff was friendly. Our spot was nice. Having a drive in on site was also a great feature of the campground. Check it out for yourselves :)

Wish the camp site had more privacy and shade, but all in all it was a nice place to stay.

Thank you for choosing our campground and making memories. We hope to see you again. We offer different areas in the campground that offer shade, please inquire next time to the front desk for your request.

Well the cabin was cute but staying in it all night was unbearable should be equipped with some ac paying $111 a night was not very comfortable unfortunately we left before sunrise in the morning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for spending your summer nights with us. I apologize for the inconvenience of the hot night and no air conditioning in early August. Our cabins are all rustic, none contain air condition or washrooms. We are trending with the theme of being close to Nature and camping with our Rustic Cabin

There was a major party of that lasted late into the night. I expected a curfew to be enforced.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comment. We do have security in the park at night. Unfortunately some campers don't have respect like you do for rules. We apologize that this spoiled your stay. I can assure you that we do try to keep the rules enforced.

Had a pleasant experience and met some seasonal campers who were very friendly, pleasant and made our experience very enjoyable. Dave the maintenance man at the campground went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and was there to offer any help when needed as my husband as a disability. He takes great pride in the campground and his job there, all your employees were wonderful and pleasant!.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so happy to hear you had a great time. Dave is a great asset to our park! Glad he made you feel at home!

Sites are super tiny! Bathrooms were gross. Wouldn't stay again. They need bigger sites with some trees.

Our stay was horrible. Way over priced for a small site. We could only plug 1 thing in at a time or the power would blow on us. There for it took hours to cook any food because most of our cooking gear was to cook over a fire (which all 3 days we weren’t allowed to have). Our site was infested with hornets. Couldn’t have food/drink out at all. Staff were very rude. The list goes on. Won’t be

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There was a Province wide fire ban, so open cooking was not permitted given the dry conditions. Only one outlet is provided on a 20 amp tenting site.

We had a great stay with lots of room around our site as well!! Clean washrooms and a pool for my daughter and her friend to enjoy!! We also enjoyed the drive in theatre too!! The only concern I had was there was lots of hornets which I am allergic too so that made it a bit uncomfortable for me!! We couldn’t really enjoy our meals there due to the number of hornets around our site!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry to hear the hornets were bothering you. We do go out and look for nest and spray when we can find them. However due to the being in rural New Brunswick they do happen. Hopefully you will give it another chance and see another area in the park that should not have hornets.

The site was the size of a postage stamp... Very small... And the seasonal trailer owners nearby were not friendly. We set up our tent in the space that was available. And then we were warned multiple times that we would be yelled at by staff that we were over the "line". Staff came by multiple times and didn't say anything. But it left us feeling insecure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for spending your summer nights with us. Sorry to hear the campers did not make you feel welcome. I can assure you that is not always the case at our campground. I hope you will give the rest of the campground another chance!

All night parties during both nights of our stay and the night watchman drove past multiple times and nothing. The bathrooms were being cleaned regularly in spite of COVID 19. There were no garbage cans anywhere. There was no management on the premises all weekend. I have never had such a bad camping experience! Not what I expected from a KOA. So disappointed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Management, including the owners, are on the park at all times (especially during the weekends). There are fewer garbage cans as we can't sanitize every handle to prevent the spread of Covid and as such table waste must be disposed of properly in our dumpsters by each individual client.

We had our first experience at koa this summer and it was a great experience the staff were very friendly and helpful. My whole family loved camping here i would definitely recommend it to family and friends. I can't wait to go on a weekend though when there's movies playing and also when this virus is gone so we can enjoy it better.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing our campground for your summer memories. Movies under the stars is something that should be on your Bucket list! See you soon!

Spencer and Megan were excellent. They took extra time to cater to my changing needs. The pool and bathrooms were always nice and clean, and the workers were always around busy cleaning and care taking

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to recognize our wonderful staff. Sarah and Spencer are truly wonderful, we are lucky to have them in on camping family!

tranquile, pour adulte et une tente c'était trers bien. Cinéparc juste a coté du camping. employés sympatiques petit hick et je les ai avisé : la poubelle de la salle de bain ne fut pas changer pour deux jour, donc je questionne le nettoyage de la salle de bain meme si elle paraissait propre. bien positionner proche de la high way, ce n'était pas si bruyant
