Barrie KOA was our first campground visit after the reopening (due to Covid). We were pleasantly surprised with the service! There was garbage pick up multiple times a day and they delivered ice and firewood pretty quickly after it was ordered! It was nice to not worry about that.
We were up on the hill that overlooks the smaller playground and it was sandy and not very treed, but the road wasn't busy and the kids were able to be a bit more free. The ice cream was excellent and even though we didn't try the pizza, I thought offering that was great.
The pools were clean and nice, I didn't love the booking system and only getting 30 minutes a day per site, but I understand we are in different times.
Also, having kids activities was so nice! my children participated in the craft and sprinkler/water balloons and they were happy to play with other kids. We also liked the mining activity!
All in all a great time, would come back at some point for sure.

We visited the park for a weekend and rented a camping lodge. The park is a good size pool park and activity area for the kids. A few small dog parks a pond and a nature trail. About 20
Minutes north of Barrie in Springwater. Nice area and views of nature . Our cabin had a deck fire pit picnic table and another 4 seater table and back yard area. Inside the cabin was not big but nice and clean and comfortable a bedroom with a queen bed bunk beds and a pull out sofa. Full kitchen and bathroom air conditioning and heat also tv with satellite and DVD player. Very comfortable stay with 4 adults. Only thing is the top bunk is very tight to sleep on . Cabin was in good condition and clean enjoyed our stay would return in the future.

We were 3 adults and 2 kids aged 3 and 1. We were pleasantly surprised by this campsite. It was just a stop over for us on the way to Algonquin but the amenities and activities were brilliant for our kids. They have activities throughout the day like s’mores on the BBQ and there are a couple of play grounds. The pool was immaculate and cleaned regularly. We did the woodland trek too - I’d recommend carriers for younger kids as it was a bit too far for our 3 year old but he loved spotting wildlife along the way. Shop has lots of essentials in case you forget anything, plus souvenirs. Pizza was good and they do a breakfast delivery service to your RV! We had a lovely time - thank you!

We live locally and order pizza from the KOA on a regular basis. No longer - today's "deluxe" was a basic pepperoni pizza - little evidence of green peppers, mushrooms, onions or bacon and it was burnt. Sadly will be returning to a pizza chain in Barrie for our pizza fix.

I should have told this KOA to shove their campground where the sun don't shine when they told me $90. 00 a night. The most I ever paid in my life, but no, I bit my tongue expecting a spectacular park. Not Impressed when I got there. Place was 1/2 capacity, no wonder at those prices. Told them my sister was coming for dinner and will be here 2 hour. Was told $10,00 a head, so that would be $40.00 + tax for 2 adults and 2 teens for 2 hours.
Tried to connect to their internet, they almost want your birth date, life history to connect. I guess so they can keep track of you.
Do yourself a big favour and avoid this crazy over priced place and their prison treatment.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Barrie KOA at the end of August. Our site was located in the quiet, adult only section of the park. We had a concrete driveway and patio, fire pit and lovely patio furniture. It's fairly close to Barrie so there is plenty to do in inclement weather. And it's also fairly close to many beaches should you want to spend the day at the lake. Nothing bad to say about the place other than, at least in the adult section, the wifi isn't just slow (which we assumed it would be) it was literally non-existant.

This was first time at a KOA, and I was very impressed. Pizza delivered to your site, breakfast too! We loved the 2 pools and all the kids programming. We did the Labour Day weekend.

Out tent site was located perfectly to everywhere we needed to be. Looking forward to camping there again.

This campground sets a parent up for success.

It’s loud here and the staff doesn’t stop it. There are fights all the time. The bathrooms are gross and the sites aren’t clean. Kids are bullied and the problems are not solved. The staff is rude. I recommend staying at Parey sound or Owen sound.

Wonderful staff, great family place. The only drawback was the pull out couch. Despite the staffs best effort, it was impossible to sleep on, they tried hard to help us.

The facilities and staff are great other than the pull out couch it deserves a 5 star.

In the all adult section it's over $6000/season. I am not familiar with the pricing in the family section, but there are many options so I am sure the staff can help you choose something to fit your budget.

Hello Jenndee21. Cedarwood Country at Barrie KOA is designed for those camping without children. It is an adults only section, not specified for "older people", those 21 and older are welcome to stay with a travel trailer, fifth wheel or motor home. There are some sites in Cedarwood, the front row C04-C08 that do provide some shade however for the most part, no, it is not more shaded down there. Please let us know if we can help with anything more. Barrie KOA.

Good morning! It looks like for this campground the check-out time is 11 am. Please give them a call for additional information: 705-726-6128. Each KOA is different, but they are more than happy to work with you and answer your questions! Thanks!

I know that guests an visit campers but I don't know why they can't stay overnight. I recommend that you contact the campground itself to find out. Perhaps they will make an exception in your case due to the distance you are traveling.
