We have camped at Fairfield's since I was a young child, so well over 15 years! This year we noticed it going downhill!! The washrooms are fairly clean except for the floor that is constantly soaking wet, a danger hazard when you have small children! You have to pay for showering too. The seasonal campers are VERY friendly & we talked to a few of them this year who are also as dissatisfied as we are. It seems there is a new rule daily & it's just getting ridiculous! My main complaint is the customer service!!! We went there with a large group & when one of our families got moved to another site away from us, we asked to get switched closer to us since there was a vacant site next to us, where they were supposed to be in the first place!. We were told by a VERY rude lady at the front desk that she had already checked someone into that site & that the family would have to "DEAL" with their new site even though it was a crappy site & 2 roads away from the group! She refused to come down & look at the vacant site claiming that they must be driving around the park because she checked them in that morning. The entire weekend, nobody ever showed up on that vacant site that she claimed was taken! Upon talking to people camping near us we found out that they also had a member of their group moved too! Also there is now NO visitors! We were planning on having a birthday party for our small child there & had to cancel due to the new no visitor rule, meanwhile there is a big sign beside the pool that tells visitors how much they need to pay for overnight & day uses! If you're going to change the rules, at least POST THEM on the website so people know what's going on! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
In our 10 years of camping and RVing, I don't think we've ever been treated so badly. We rented 3 sites for our group, over a weekend. The park is quite nice in terms of landscaping, and the seasonal people are REALLY nice. The buildings are fairly run down, with the washrooms in poor condition, and the sites difficult to get into because of the poor layout. The site we were on had the sewer outlet at one end, with electric and water at the other! The absolute worst part of the whole experience was the poor customer service. The rules, which aren't indicated on the website, are extremely arbitrary and ridiculous. The gate closed at 7:30 p.m. on a Friday night - and when we told them that the rest of our group couldn't get there in time, their answer was that they needed to find another place to stay for the night, and they would lose their reservation and their $25 deposit. They also have an absolute NO visitor policy. Additionally, when our group was leaving, we packed up our site, pulled out, parked, and wanted to take the kids for a little swim. They told us we had to leave the premises! Just a very sorry experience all around. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An excellent park. Sites are large with trees separating sites and almost perfectly level. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had a problem with the internet but they were able to reboot and then it worked fine. The rate quoted is a rally rate and was based on a week stay. The campground is a little difficult to get to but well worth the trip. There is access to Lake Ontario and I it appears that there will soon be sites right on the lake (which will probably be "super premium"sites). Prince Edward County is a great community to explore or just to relax in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Place was busy, we had to stay in overflow field which was fine. They allowed us to bring our generator, a few other units had theirs as well. Difficult to fill our fresh water tank at the designated fill spot due too cars parking to use the main building. I would recommend they relocate the fill hose. We did get some complaints from Tent folks when we used our generator. We didn't run it all day or night. Camp rules state from 8am-10pm perhaps tent folks should be given a heads up that these devices are permitted. They have a wonderful splash pad and pool area, the place is great. Close to Sandbanks Provincial Park and 7km from Picton. Difficult to locate with GPS as the address and physical location are different. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is well maintained and the staff is friendly. The sites are level and they have a great pool. They have Wi-Fi throughout the park, but charge $11.30 per day if you want to use it. There is also a charge for the showers. The park has a large meeting room for groups but unfortunately the nearest restrooms are a long walk away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our favorite local camping spot. The pull through sites are great and seem private even though there are many of them side by side. The unserviced sites by the lake are fantastic! Great location for exploring the county; convenient to everything but with a feeling of being away from it all. It's getting busier every year, and we are finding that we need to book well in advance for pull throughs. We will return again and again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice enough park, but $ 48 for an off-level site with no CATV, the pool closed for renovations and an extra $10.50 per day for WiFi? In this day and age when WiFi is provided free in most campgrounds, airports and coffee houses? Nice folks who charge about twice what it's worth. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our favourite park in Ontario! It's beautifully maintained with a choice of full-service pull-through sites in a shady area, or no services in the open beside the Lake Ontario shore, complete with totally relaxing surf sounds. There is an excellent snack bar as well as a chance to taste/buy Prince Edward County wines. The pool seemed a bit cold, but that didn't deter the youngsters. Many friendly park model and seasonal folks with no junk at their homes. Would have rated a 10 if they had cable TV, but 8 stations were pulled in through the amplified antenna. Can't comment on the Wi-Fi. This was a weekend getaway, but we'll be back for a week or more in September. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came in the middle of June and the park wasn't really geared up for weekends and vacations until a week later. Brand new picnic tables, more wifi tower locations, great staff, and a great park, coupled with a key entry rv sites area. Sparkling clean restrooms, showers, and general facilities. The down side is the card key has a deposit charge and the WiFi charge is a little high, however, connection was good. This was one of the only non-membership rv parks we have used on this trip across the U.S., so may be a little biased on the additional charges. Overall we would definitely return to this rv park the next time we come this way. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a large campground with many activities, especially for the kids. Some of the sites are waterfront (Lake Ontario), which are first come, first served. The remainder of the sites are of a good size, though don't come expecting any privacy. Many seasonals as well, but in much better condition than I've seen at other parks. During the 10 days I camped at Quinte's Isle, the wireless internet was down for half that time. The internet is a pay per use service run by another company - with the payment plans being 1 day, 1 month or 1 season. Complaints/suggestions regarding the internet service issues fell on deaf ears - wasn't their problem it seems, even when the service provider wasn't answering or returning calls. In addition, the beach that belongs to this campground is very rocky/full of shells - not the nice soft, sand that's to be found at Sandbanks Provincial Park, located a few kms away. All in all I find this to be a decent, if expensive, campground for those with kids (pool, store stocked with goodies, lots of activities, teen hall, etc...). We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a very clean and expansive park in a beautiful setting. They have great facilities and nice campsites, though quite a few are seasonals. Unfortunately, their rates are very high - they charge extra even for electric! That is the only thing that keeps them from a much higher rating. We would probably stay here again, but will check the full price carefully when contemplating another visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
