This is a small community-owned park that has excellent facilities and is very convenient to the highway. The cost is outstandingly good. We would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This campground has two parts - one older and shaded, the other newer and open. We stayed in the new section where access is very good for big rigs. In general, this is a top-notch campground, well away from highway noise. The access gate adds security, and the new facilities are excellent. We didn't use the laundry, but it appears to be really good. We will probably stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This a plain basic campground. The major advantage is that it is very inexpensive.

Date of Stay:

This is a reasonable park, nothing particularly wonderful or awful. Could use a bit of cleanup in a few spots, but the sites are generally pretty easy to access. The laundry is OK. We might stay again.

Date of Stay:

This KOA is immaculate and very well run. Some of the access roads are a little bit tight for our 36 foot fifth wheel. The campground is quite heavily wooded, so you might not be able to get a satellite connection. The laundry is very good, though a bit expensive. The owners were most cooperative while we had some truck repairs done. For a KOA, even the price is reasonable, though we selected a power and water site for a four night stay - full service is more expensive. We would probably stay here again.

We stayed here seven years ago, and the review I submitted then is still pretty much valid. "Very clean and fairly new facilities. Friendly staff who always seemed to be busy with something - hence very well maintained. Some pull-throughs, bit tight access because of nearby trees. Lots of shade sites, and some open sites for satellite access. Overall, this was a very nice park with convenient access to the Bruce Peninsula National Park and town nearby. We would definitely stay here again." The major change since 2007 is the price. Last time, the price was $36 per night. Now it is $50. That seems to be bit much of an increase. Next time, we will try some of the other places in the area, some of which are new. On top of the basic high price, everything else is added cost. Their laundry was very inefficient and expensive. We spent $20 for four loads and even then, the dryers did not work adequately. In our ten years of full-time RVing, this is among the most expensive and inefficient laundries we have used.

This campground is a very pleasant place, quiet and well set-up. All facilities are well-maintained. The access for our 36 foot fifth wheel was good. Our rate reflects a discount, but even the full rate is excellent. The only thing that keeps this place from being a 10 is the lack of a laundry. Though many of the sites are seasonals, several are kept available for transients. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

This conservation area is generally very heavily shaded and treed with fairly tight access roads. It is also quite heavily used. We found the access for our 36 foot fifth wheel to be extremely tight, despite the fact that they advertised access for vehicles of our size. The campsite signage is poor, making access even more difficult. In addition, the large dense trees meant that we had no satellite connection. On top of that, the place does not have a laundry and is very heavily used. We would not stay here again, particularly considering the rather expensive price.

This park has grass sites, basically free-form (park your rig where you like on your assigned lot) with quite a bit of shade, but generally quite easy access. The staff was very helpful. We used the good inexpensive laundry on site. Our satellite connection was good. Overall we were pleased with the place, though the price is high. We might stay again.

This large park is about 75% seasonals, most of whom are not particularly friendly to transients. Nonetheless, the facilities are pretty good, at least in the part we used. Their laundry is satisfactory, though somewhat undersized for the number of users. Convenience to Kingston is the major attraction for us. Our rate includes a discount for a week long stay. We might stay here again if we need to be close to Kingston.

We stayed at this park for 1.5 months while doing some work in the area. In brief, this is an excellent park. The owners are extremely welcoming and seem dedicated to running a nice, clean, comfortable modern facility. In fact, we arrived (by pre-arrangement) two weeks before the park was officially open. The owners made several changes to accommodate us. During our stay, they upgraded the laundry, altered their mowing schedule, relocated their Internet access, and generally were very helpful to us. In ten years of full-time RVing, this was the only place that the owner actually washed our truck, though users should not expect that service regularly! On top of all that, the bathroom and showers facilities are clean and modern. The recreation hall, playground, pool, and store add to the attraction here. The price we paid is a monthly rate with some negotiated discounts. We are very pleased with Smugglers Cove and will most definitely stay here again if the opportunity arises.

Date of Stay:

This park is built around a large quarry with very good water sports possibilities. The quarry also means they cannot install sewer, so they offer a pump-out service for long stay, as well as a dump station. The owner was very helpful to us. The transient sites are mostly located on the waterfront and in a clear area affording a very good satellite shot. We will probably stay again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

This park is a marvel, but the price seems a bit high. They have added several excellent sites in the past couple of years. The new ones have lots of space between sites, and have an excellent clear satellite view. Their laundry is inexpensive, though small for the number of sites. We have stayed here in past, and we will be back.

Date of Stay:

This park is immaculate and extremely well equipped. For example, most sites have two sewer connections, one near the front and one near the back. The power connections are very well constructed, with a separate grounding wire, something very rarely found. Most pads on transient sites are dead level high-grade concrete. The owners obviously are plowing considerable cash into this campground. It is quite far from anything other than farms, so if you want quiet, this is the place. The sites are about half filled with seasonal campers, but the transient sites are very easily accessed. Almost all transient sites have a very good satellite view. The biggest drawback to this place is the very high cost. Even the laundry is expensive. Our rate includes a discount for a seven day stay. Even with the discount, $66 per night is very high in our experience, despite the very good facilities. For this price, we will probably not stay here again.

This campground is associated with a motel operation, but the campground itself is quite well run. It is clean, accessible to big rigs, and appears to have modern facilities. Most sites are allocated to seasonal campers, but the transient sites are somewhat separate. The laundry is clean and inexpensive. Our satellite view was excellent, as are almost all the transient sites. Our rate includes a discount for a seven day stay, but even at the full rate, the price is very good. The transient sites are far from the nearby road, so everything was quiet. The only thing keeping this place from being a 10 is the large seasonal population. We will stay here again if in the area.
