I will begin with the positive since it'll be the shortest.... Great if you have children and are happy to have them out of your site for the day. Big splash pad area (no pool), bounce pillows and activities. The younger lady who checked us in was also very nice and pleasant. Now the negative... I'll start by saying, if you are an adult, with or without children, who does not enjoy loud screaming (by kids and adults) from 6am to midnight, this is not the place for you. Upon pulling into the site we had booked, we were immediately greeted by seasonal campers who didn't believe in maintaining an appropriate volume and instead were screaming back and forth at each other, to top it off, one of the 'men' came tearing in on his golf cart and intentionally skidded it on the road, nice! These were middle aged adults, not children. Immediately, we requested a change in site due to the excessive noise, which I could still hear even after we moved to a different section. Our next site was quieter and thankfully we did not have a neighbour on one side of us, otherwise, we would have been eating breakfast with them since the sites were so tight. Be aware that traffic moves at an impressively high speed through most areas and that includes the multitude of golf carts. To make matters worse, the fire pits are located only a few feet from the road and placed in the most awkward locations. Ours was close enough to the road that you could risk getting clipped by a vehicle if you sat on the road side of the pit. The next day we headed out to explore, returning in the evening to see we had new neighbours. Later, when I went to use the outlet in our trailer, I found it was not working. We checked the plug outside (which is technically on the neighbours site) to find the new neighbours had graciously unplugged our trailer, we assume after they discovered the second plug was not working, to plug in the extension cord for their tent but had placed our cord in the non working spot. Thanks 326, you guys are the best! After discovering this, we decided to use the hookup for the empty site next to us, only to discover the second plug on that outlet was not functioning as well. FABULOUS! We alert the front gate, who sends over two individuals who clearly had no idea how to fix the issue. My husband suggests they supply us with a splitter to temporarily solve the issue. They disappear, returning a half an hour or so later, look at the outlet again before muttering to each other that they need a splitter! They leave again and did not return for the rest of our stay. Then came the fireworks! No signs anywhere in the site or at the gate alerting you to the fact that fireworks would be happening. I personally have nothing against fireworks, it's not a big deal, unless you are not expecting them. We have a dog who is very scared, to the point of hard shaking, anytime she's near fireworks so we always remove her from area's if we know they are about to occur. Thanks to Marco Polo Land, we were not give the chance to leave or at least put her in the car prior to the show starting. We ended up having to put her in the car and cranked the music to try to drown out the noise. When it started we decided to leave the grounds until they stopped, however, the exit was intentionally blocked by security, presumably due where the fireworks were being set off from, so we were unable to leave! Now I know what you're thinking, it's just a dog, she'll be fine. Yup, you're right, she'll be okay, it might increase her fear a bit during the next thunderstorm but we'll cuddle her through it. The bigger issue is, what if there was a person in that park with trauma that fireworks could trigger? I doubt cuddling them and turning the radio up is going to fix the problem. Put a sign up at the entrance that simply states "fireworks 9pm" and there would be no issues. Lastly, there were NO Covid-19 measures being taken aside from a few signs on the bathroom doors! No stalls, showers or sinks were blocked. No one inside the bathrooms even attempted to distance from you. To be honest, that seemed to be a theme across PEI, however, I expect a business to adhere to and enforce the rules. The bouncy pillows were swarmed with kids all 4 days we were there and the water park was no better. If someone had booked the site next to us, which was available, I don't see how we could have maintained a 6 ft distance at all times. Overall, this place simply felt like it was trying to squeeze as many people in as possible without worrying about the safety or comfort of their guests. I had a feeling the sites would be small with little to no privacy when I could barely find any pictures of the sites, I should have paid attention to that red flag. TLDR: If you want to get to a site, let your kids go off on their own and loud constant screaming from sun up to sun down doesn't bother you, book here. If you prefer some level of quiet, alerts to fireworks or other loud gatherings prior to their commencement, outlets where both plugs work, some small sense of privacy and a campfire which doesn't come with a chance of being clipped by a car, book somewhere else!

No efforts to meet pandemic control measures. Crowding in the water park with one entry and exit less than 2 m wide made physical distancing impossible. Staff said they hadn’t developed a strategy by mid-August. About 75 people on a trampoline despite a sign limiting it to 20, again no staff effort to enforce rules. People playing ball hockey and staff encouraging people to congregate for fireworks display were all consistent indications that only lip service was paid to pandemic control efforts. In comparison, the garbage on our site was welcome. Strongly discourage anyone from visiting.

If you have very young kids this is a great campground. If your kids are closer to our boys ages (11 & 13), beware...there is NO POOL. The water activity is a splash pad, not for swimming and geared towards young children. We camped here many years ago but in recent years had heard very negative things mostly about the poor customer service and the lack of transparency around their water park being open. I called and asked about swimming and was told the water activity included a heated pool. Not true. Food at the canteen was good and the boys enjoyed the organized activities. Campground was clean. This is trailer park style camping where you can sit and watch what your neighbors are having for dinner. We normally like to camp with a bit more privacy. We also found the car traffic alarmingly fast throughout the campground with cyclists and pedestrians not given much consideration. I was thankful our boys are older and this was less of a concern for us then it would be for families with younger kids. This is a been there done that campground for us, not likely to return.

Stayed at this campground for 2 days last week. Friendly staff, very welcoming. This park is really big and offers lots of activities for kids. At night time there is activities for all ages. The water park is very big and a huge hit for the kids. I recommend this campground to anyone.
