Rate includes tax and value card discount. Nice long and wide site that was reasonably level. Strong Wi-Fi and received several digital channels over air. Site services were acceptable with only negative being damaged sewer cap. Attention to lawn mowing would make campground look better. Some road noise, but not out of the ordinary. If instead of your own facilities you rely on the washrooms and showers a little walk, but not out of the way. Discount on fuel for campers. No reason not to stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I had to set aside my refusal to stay at KOA's as this was the only thing available in the area. You check in at the gas station. I had a pull through site with 30 amp service. The pull through was pretty long! Sites are all white gravel. Gravel was so white that when I looked out the window after taking a nap, I thought it had snowed! Temporary insanity. There is some grass between the sites, with adequate spacing. My site was rather level, didn't take much for my stabilizers to get it. I saw an elderly couple use the pool, so I'm guessing the pool temperature was acceptable. Surprised the pool was still open, but it was rather warm today. No cable. My JACK antenna picked up seven Canadian channels, but two of the channels were duplications, so basically five channels. I had trouble connecting to the WiFi from Site 28. But after I walked to the gas station and asked for help, my laptop stayed connected, no problem. Depending on where you are in the park, you get a selection of three WiFi networks of which two require passwords and the third is a "free" access. If you don't have satellite or don't like what is offered on Canadian TV, there is a Country Store about a mile away that sells a wide selection of used DVD's. KOA's are rather pricey and this was cheap for a KOA. (On the other hand, I can't wait to see what the Canada to US currency translation on my credit card ends up being.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely campsites, well treed, close to the river. The owners have done many upgrades and have put in a swimming pool, new laundry facilities. They are very friendly and accommodating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We decided to upgrade to a larger pull-through with the hope that the additional separation from the river might reduce the mosquito attacks (it did not help). The site gets a fair bit of road noise but it did not bother us. We spent two nights. It is about 30 minutes to get downtown so day trips as tourists need to be planned to make them efficient. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Narrow roads, very tight entry to sites, but other than that, OK. We had a marginal satellite connection, but most sites probably don't have a view of the southern sky. It looks like the electric and water was recently upgraded. They do offer a 1 cent per litre fuel discount, but the Flying J, just ten KM closer to Winnipeg is much cheaper. We probably would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Absolutely gorgeous campground, treed, abundant wildlife, huge spots (we could fit another rig easily between us and the next camper), and we have a nice view of the Assiniboine River which is nice for canoeing and small watercraft. The campground is undergoing a major renovation/expansion including addition of upgraded electrical sites which are nearly finished. The exceptionally friendly and welcoming owner was very proud of this expansion and he also told me they hope to have free Wifi throughout the camp very soon. Meantime you can access internet from the main office/cafe as they have a good hot spot. It is a ten minutes drive into Winnipeg and major stores and an RV repair shop, propane fill, and wash place for big rigs and RVs within a five minute drive. The only thing I don't like is it is close to the major highway in Manitoba and the traffic noise is incessant even though muffled somewhat by being down low and well off the highway. Campers get a discount on gas or one cent a liter on the posted price and the posted gas is one cent/liter cheaper than the city prices for everyone else. The owner does sell propane but only on the exchange program. The drive through sites in the new area are really large and likely could accommodate big rigs. This place is a bit more expensive than others in the area but I think worth it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This park cost us $32.55 Canadian or $28.84 US. We had a big rig with three slides and the site we were put in was pretty narrow. The branches of the adjacent trees were on the roof and both sides of the motorhome. The sites were plenty long but there is a drainage ditch that we were instructed to straddle with our wheels. This park is just barely adequate as an overnight stop. We will probably not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice location beside Assiniboine River. Pull-through sites are very spacious. Lots of grass and trees. Hook-ups are well placed. Staff very helpful and friendly. We stayed for a week. The mosquitos were a little thick, but it is along a river in Manitoba, and they were doing some fogging. The noise from the Trans-Canada Highway may disturb some. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This camp is right by the #1 highway about 10 kilometers from Winnipeg. It is well treed. There are no showers. The office is at the Esso Station "C" store. The WiFi only works in the coffee shop (not a restaurant). They did have it working in the park but it has failed and they do not know how to fix it. I chose it based on its location. There are 35 RV sites and 35 tent sites. There are just 19 30-amp sites. Even with the campground practically empty there are issues with power fluctuation. Fortunately it is cold tonight (3 C) so I am able to mask the highway noise by using the heat strip in my air conditioner. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
