Jay Lake Campground & RV Park, Minden, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

"Horrible owners and park". First impressions are everything, and when you pull up to this campground, the first impression you get is it is a dumping ground. The first thing you see when you arrive are 2 huge dumpsters/storage units place in front of the owners house, you see the garbage and recycling containers. Once you move past that, the next thing you see is the owners have used a camping space for their own storage, although there is plenty of storage (the old owners never had their stuff all over the place.) The current owners have a huge boat (which isn't even allowed on the lake), a flat bed with tons of chain link fencing, a trailer, just randomly parked by their house. The new thing they have added, is a very pathetic "rope" to keep trespassers out. This is very inconvenient having to get in and out of your vehicle each time we want to leave to go into town. In all the years we have been here, there has never been anything like this. They have raised our rates by close to 30%, and they have taken so much away from us. We are now responsible for our own lawn maintenance, we now have to pay for hydro, and we don't get our winter storage fee deducted from our fees. The opening weekend there was no running water, or use of the washrooms, because the lines were frozen. Again, in all the years we have been there, we have never experienced anything like that. There are so many empty lots, we counted at least 15! That should tell you something about the new owners and how people see them. They have no people skills, the lady owner is just plain rude! Her famous response is "well if you don't like it, pull your trailer off our property!" We have all been bullied into staying. We no longer can sell our trailers privately, we just have to pull them off, which is expensive and costs us to loose the value of our trailers. Overall, definitely not the same park, horrible owners. I do not recommend this park to anyone. We camped at Jay Lake Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
