This koa is by far the worst koa we've ever been to and we have been to a few. The owner is creepy, rude and condescending. He creeps around your trailer around quiet hour and harasses people and threatens guests to turn out the fire. Even eating a bag of chips is too loud for him. When a group of...

Had a great time for the long weekend. Lots of things to do : pumpkin carving, great haunted house, trick or treat, kids bingo. They had an amazing pumpkin walk. The jumping pillow, mini golf and bike cart kept them busy as well. Washrooms are very clean. They have strict rules about noise that are enforced after 11pm.

A haunted house, potluck turkey dinner, pumpkin walk. All awesome. Kids had a blast. Staff were great and friendly. Kids had activities and crafts. It did a great job of letting my wife and I relax while entertaining the kids.

We spent 5 days at this KOA and really enjoyed it. We had a beautiful fireworks on Friday night and fun outdoor movie on Saturday. The campground is really quiet, clean and well maintained. We will go back for sure.

We spent a family long week end at the KOA campground in Cardinal Ontario. My wife and I rented a cabin($155per night) but the rest of the family had a tent trailer. Our cabin was quite small but it had a double bed and two bunk beds. Since there were only two of us we didn't find the size a...

Spent three nights with kids. Lots of activities and a nice playground. Very family-oriented. Safe place to let the kids enjoy. Lovely shaded sites, no sewer hook-up and only 30 amps so we couldn't run our air conditioner, but free WIFI was nice. Would recommend.

Second time we came and consistency with cleanliness and pricing is a plus. So many things for kids to do - physical activities. Most is included in price and the few extras are more than fairly priced compared to other parks with same extras. Highly recommend especially for families with children under 13.

Had a family reunion and didn't find much to enjoy unless you're a child, don't like campfires or like going to bed when the sun sets. It's like a park filled with kids beside an old folks home. No noise allowed after 10pm and you better be in bed by 11pm. Everything the kids enjoy costs money. Owner wonders around...

Nice place, super clean and owners are very friendly and helpful. There is no camping sites with sewers but we got a free pump out at our site for booking more than 5 nights. Near lots of attractions for kids and 20 minutes from the USA border.

Wow! Just wow! This KOA is over the top. Beautiful lots, two parks, bouncy pillow, pool, splash park, mini-golf, climbing walls, etc... this KOA has it all. Easily accessible from Ottawa, and right near the 401. Clean premises and frienly staff. We wanted for nothing.... ok well maybe a little more shade around the pool in the form of umbrellas...
