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. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The only thing is park needs to make it a "10" is 50 amps. We had a motorhome site overlooking the lake. Absolutely wonderful. Clean, quiet, very nice. One word of wisdom: check-in is 2:00 and not one minute before. You will sit in the parking lot and wait until 2:00. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were fortunate in getting one of the full service sites on the edge of the camping area overlooking a park and the lake (sites RV39-42). It was a great spot and the WiFi at this location was quite good. There is no road noise and no trains, but there is a band shell in the park that might be used in the evenings. The laundry is very small and expensive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet city park near the waterfront; sites are wide and level, but not very deep. Fortunately, the roads are very wide, so your RV can hang over the end of your site without problems. A few sites have water views, but most are back further in the trees. Wi-Fi hotspot is at the office; coverage at sites will vary due to the hills, but it only dropped a few times for me. The park has convenient access into town, but it's a long, slow drive in from the highway through downtown! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Small park that a private concession runs. Sites are wide and nice. Shower rooms are old and need some updating and shower curtains. Wi-Fi is only at the office area and free. Deer came by sites near us which was nice. Over all an OK one nighter but condition of showers and some graffiti on buildings does not lend a nice feel. Office is not staffed during the day when we were there, but may be during summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Municipal created now privately run campground. Signage to campground good. Wide entrance and large area to park and register. Office friendly and efficient. Access roads within park needed maintenance and some trees cutting back. Gravel sites were flat but quite narrow. Our site had full hook-up and a magnificent forward view over the lake but we were lucky. Most of the other overnight sites had no views and were at the back of the campground. Solid electricity and good water pressure. Good location to explore Kenora and the Lake in the Woods area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here overnight. There is a new Kenora bypass, 17A that skirts Kenora now. This campground is 2 km from the east junction of Hwy 17 and Hwy 17A on old Hwy 17 heading towards Kenora. Campsite level. People friendly. WIFI expensive at $5.00 for 4 hours. The overnight stays are across from the main campground causing you to cross the highway to use any facilities. Traffic noise high as you are adjacent to the highway and it appears a lot of tractor trailer units use the old highway as it is shorter through Kenora on their way to Winnipeg than using the new bypass. The campground looks well kept. Some great long term sites on the main campground. Our site was level, large and neat. It was however infested with ants. A little expensive but probably would use again if by this way. Gas and diesel available right next door. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Definitely clean washrooms, great showers. Hot tub on deck overlooking Longbow Lake. Laundromat small and expensive ($3.00 to wash). Transient sites appear to be back ins and are across the road from the camp. Gas station (no diesel), store with LCBO within walking distance. About 12 km. from city of Kenora just off Hwy 17 heading to Winnipeg. The nightly rate is including the Good Sam Discount. Waterfront sites are for seasonal. Would definitely camp here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park and a friendly owner who was very helpful. Even delivered a box of wood($) to our site. Several seasonal RV'rs there as it's close to lots of fishing and boating. I would recommend for extended stay especially in summer months if you enjoy outdoor activities like boating or fishing. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came for a week and stayed for a month! The Willows is a beautifully laid out big rig friendly park with trees strategically placed to give each site a sense of privacy even when the park is full. All facilities are clean, well kept and convienient including washrooms, laundry facilities and office “mini store”. The campground is very close to Longbow Lake and Lake of the Woods making it a great place for access to abundant water activities. The location of the campground lends itself to hiking, biking, walking and great interaction with folk from Winnipeg and other surrounding communities who visit for the weekend or the season. Water, electric (hydro as the Canadians call it) and sewer systems all performed as expected. WIFI is weak in the very back of the park. We would recommend a good filter on the water due to a relatively high iron content. For the most important aspect of the campground a word needs to be said for the owners and staff. They and their family are professionals in the art of hospitality. They truly care about your comfort, enjoyment and overall experience of your stay. Need a rental boat? The owner will get one for you. Need firewood? It will be delivered to your site in a flash! Have an emergency and the staff will do whatever it takes to help. (This actually happened during our stay) We found this campground to be the very best of most all aspects of the RV and campground experience. We have already made our plans to return next summer for another month of their hospitality and the enjoyment of the wonderful people we met during our stay. I have never rated a park a “10” but in our book, Willows is a 10! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped for 1 night. Site was level. Power was very good and stable. Water pressure was good. The men's bathroom was not the cleanest and definitely needs some major upkeep. The Wi-Fi would not work that afternoon or evening. It would just keep dropping out. Very frustrating! Early in the morning it worked good. I suspect that the service is too small for the people use. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great spot. We came for a day or two while we visited the beautiful Kenora area, but decided to stay for five days. Clean, quiet, pleasant and helpfull staff, acceptable Wi-Fi and steady hydro. Easy in and out for our motorhome and toad. We now plan to come back nest year. Most of the seasonals are empty in August so that is great for privacy too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This new campground continues to be a work in progress. It consists of about 1/2 wooded sites and about 1/2 in an open area. A Wi-Fi hot spot has been added near the office, and may be accessible from the lower sites. The staff is hard at work adding new sites and improving the facilities. Restrooms are adequate and the setting is rustic. We spent 4 nights here and during two days the electric power failed several times briefly, but this issue was apparently resolved. Sites seemed reasonably level. We would definitely stay here again. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
2010 is the first year that The Willows has been open, and although things are a little rough around the edges, the park is being developed very quickly. The RV and tent sites are mostly in the woods, with a few pull-throughs for overnighters. No Wi-Fi, pool or laundry yet, but the office is currently under construction, and facilities upgraded. I would definitely return! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
