Great Family Park

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Aug 20, 2018via mobile
This was a great family park. We showed up here and had no problems getting a site without a reservation. They had a fantastic pool which had a very deep end and diving board. The pool was quite large. They also had comfy lounge chairs. The playground was great and they also had a large jumping pillow. It was typical of a KOA. They had some activities for the kids but not a whole lot. They were simple activities (like coloring, tag, etc). It would have been fun to have some « different » kids like chocolate bar bingo. There also was a beach but we didn’t have time to visit it.

There were a few cons to this place. There were LOTS of dogs and they were extremely noisy. The showers were clean but the toilet areas were too well used between cleanings and the toilet paper dispensers were often empty.

It was a great location in terms of visiting Charlottetown.

Let me start by saying we've camped in many, many KOA's in Eastern Canada and the US. Each and every time, we've left happy and looking forward to the next KOA. This summer alone we stayed in Montreal South and Quebec City - both exceptional KOA's in their own right.
We were thoroughly disappointed by the reception we received right from the get go at Cornwall. The young girl who tried to serve us, was obviously flustered before we even arrived. She was rude and indignant because we arrived before the 2:00 check in. Although every other KOA we've visited has a check in of 2:00, they have all been very accommodating whenever we arrived early. Sometimes it's not what's said, but how it's said. Greeting guests with attitude and indignation isn't the greatest business model. Something as simple as arriving a little early and being met by rude employees and management, caused us to request a refund and look for alternate accommodations. Sometimes things happen for a reason....without this inconvenience, we would never have discovered what a wonderful KOA Cavendish Holiday is! We were met right away with a smile!! I highly recommend Cavendish KOA over Cornwall KOA.

We decided to stay here for 5 days because we were touring the island. Although our preference is a national park, they were all booked up for the Cavendish Beach Music Festival. This park however is great for kids and we had our 11 year old grandson with us. Check in was good , we changed sites because our trailer wouldn't fit in the allocated site. The bathrooms were very clean and the front service was excellent and efficient. Lots of activities and fun things to do for the children. Pool activities, tie dye t-shirts etc...
Downsides. We don't like being so close together but expected this in a KOA. And the Wi-Fi was very poor. I came to the office to do my email and other methods of communication. As I said its great for kids but if it was just us folk, I would prefer more privacy.

Have stayed hear each year for the past 8 years. We have traveled across Canada many times and still find this not only one if our favorites but the best in the east coast. Oceanfront, 10 min to downtown Ch'town, Clean, quiet and outstanding staff.

The only regret we have in putting this review in is that more people will stay making it harder to get our favorite waterfront site.

We spent several days here and it’s was the nicest rv Park we have ever stayed in. It was beautiful the lots were big the facilities clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this rv Park to anyone coming to this area. It’s convenient to all the island easy to find and so easy to get in and out
