This is a really beautiful campground. The owners keep it well maintained, with staff constantly on patrol for garbage, cigarette butts, etc. Although there are no sewer hookups, there is free on-site pumping. Our site was a premium site with a patio. My only gripes are 1) they only allowed one Wi-Fi code per site despite the premium price we were paying. 2) Despite free sewage service, the price should be lower. 3) The dump station on the way out was next to impossible for the first row to use. One additional note, the store and bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible. Despite all, we really liked this campground and we will come back.

We camped here as part of a rally. Although the management worked hard to make all of the group happy, I have the following comments about the campground: 1. Our spot was not level and was difficult to enter due to electrical boxes. The sewer connection required 3 hoses to reach. 2. The public buildings were old and in need of repair. They were definitely not wheelchair accessible. 3. The campground had excellent access to public transportation to downtown and the falls.

This was our second time here - we visited last year. F loop has full service sites. Very large sites. Friendly staff. Manager came around to announce changes coming this fall. Sites will be concrete, angled for easier entry, new water system, and some 50 amp. Also some handicap sites will be added. Should be ready by Memorial Weekend 2015.

We decided to camp here on the basis of other reviews. We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the CG. The owners were always present, picking up garbage, etc. The pool is somewhat small, but clean. Many of the sites have cement pads. Cement pad could have been larger, but it was OK. There are also “buddy sites” which are a great for groups. Water pressure was OK, but not great. Wi-Fi was very good. We did not use the washroom or shower facilities. We will definitely come here again.

This was not our first time at this CG. We prefer the adult area in the Cedarwood area. The sites are large, concrete pads, patios, furniture. WiFi was strong. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Date of Stay:

This is our first-time at this CG. There are two areas - the older area has less privacy between sites. The spots in the newer area are further apart and on paved slabs. The comfort station was clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi was good until the CG filled up - then slowed to a crawl. Water pressure was excellent. The CG is located close to highway for access to local attractions and restaurants (you must go to Memphis Fire BBQ). Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls are close by. My only complaint is that the sites don't have good drainage. It rained all day Thursday and Thursday night and we still had wet ground on Monday. The staff at the front gate are very friendly. Highly recommended.

This CG is a hidden gem. You wouldn't know you were in the middle of the city. The new operators of the CG are trying really, really hard to make everybody happy. I highly recommend this CG if you're in the area. If you have a large rig, there are many sites that are huge. The only downside to the entire CG is that there is no sewer service. Water pressure is very good. Lots of stores nearby.

Date of Stay:

This is our second trip to this campground. We reserved one of the premium pull through spots with concrete pad and patio. We had an issue with water pressure – but the CG reported subsequently that it was probably a problem with the regulator at our site. Most sites have trees for shade. This campground is incredibly family friendly with lots of amenities including go-carts, batting cages, water park, etc. I highly recommend this park as a destination not just a stop-over.

This is a good example of an older KOA that tries hard. We were escorted to our site. Wi-Fi was strong and free during our stay. Sites were typically close together for a KOA. If you have a big rig, be sure to scout out the site first as some of the sites have trees that make entry and exit difficult. Sites were gravel and inside roads were also gravel. Although we didn’t use it during our stay, the pool appeared to be nice. Lots of trees for shade.

This is relatively small and quiet with lots of shade. The owners were great and courteous during our visit. This campground is in a good position for visiting the Moline / Quad Cities area with easy access to back roads. Wi-Fi was strong. If you’re looking for a pool or lots of amenities, this isn’t the place. If you’re looking for a place to rest your head, this is a pleasant park.

Date of Stay:

A very interesting CG. It has a large pool and lots of other amenities such as tennis courts, volleyball courts and an indoor lodge (with big TV). The sites all have concrete pads. The roads are paved and the central pond has a nice fountain. We stayed here during this summer’s heat wave and were amazed that the park had absolutely NO trees for shade. Be sure to pick a site with appropriate east/west orientation for afternoon shade. Although we like this park, we deducted marks for lack of trees.

In my opinion this is an older KOA that seems a bit tired. The sites are too close together. When we were escorted to our site, the site next to us had loud music playing on a boom box playing on their patio. The employee was content to ignore the situation. Fortunately it was hot, we were there only for the night and we ran the A/C continuously. I will not return to this CG.

We stayed at Balsam Lake campground. Our site (#92) was large, but very uneven – even after three boards under one side and our front landing gear fully extended, I couldn’t level the trailer. We moved to another site that was level. We found that even the sites that are “premium” have very tight turning issues. If you have a large rig (we have a 35’ toy hauler), consider an end spot. We found that the camp staff were very friendly.

The adult section (Cedarwood) is very nice. We've stayed here before - and we love it. Very quiet, clean and large sites. Highly recommended. Full concrete sites with patios, patio furniture and shrubs between the sites. There is garbage pickup at the sites, pizza and wood delivery throughout the park. The staff are very friendly.

Date of Stay:

This was our first stay at Turning Stone, although we've heard good reviews from friends. We tend to prefer high-end resort-style parks, and this one outperformed all the others. The spots are huge and easy to navigate with large rigs. Most sites have pleasant views with mature trees. The entire campground is family and pet friendly. Washrooms are immaculate and new. Staff are very friendly. All sites and roads are paved - making walking and biking very pleasant. Office facilities were excellent as were the pool and recreational areas. If I had one complaint (albeit minor), it was that the Wi-Fi was too weak or nonexistent in parts of the park. I highly recommend staying here. Don't forget to take the free shuttle to the casino for fun.
