Cavendish is a great KOA. The location is perfect. Right in the middle of Cavendish, which is a tourist type area. Water parks, amusement rides, mini golf, attractions, and all the tourist trap shops are close by. The National Park beaches are right down the road. Take a ride to Rustico and visit an old time fishing village. Or head down to Charlottetown and see the historic city. All are worth doing. PEI is one of the most beautiful places in all of Canada. The campground is great. The sites are large, and mostly level. They are particularly long. There was plenty of room for our trailer, and our tow vehicle, and had plenty of length left on our site. Lots of stuff to do at the campground too. Movie nights, jumping pillow, playground, RC car dirt track. It is a very nice campground. The bath houses are clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice large grassed KOA, with a moderate number of trees. Some sites are gravel, others grass. Most sites slightly sloped. Paved roads. Very clean nice bathhouse with hot water. Wife said laundry could have been cleaner and half of dryers out of order. Very pleasant lady at checkin/store. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Upon first arrival I was not impressed with the sites in this park. They are very small and crammed in with neighbors. They are all open sites and no trees. They allow 2 vehicles per site in addition to the RV so it is quite crammed all the time. The upside to this park was their rec staff who were amazing. They kept the kids busy and were full of energy, their kids kamp was great. The pool was large and clean and open 9-9. Wi-Fi was very poor. A Great spot for kids, but wouldn't want to be there as an adult couple. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We wanted a 50 amp site, however we ended up on a 30 amp. Never really been a problem at other parks, but the electric was barely usable here. You could not run two appliances at the same time; example, a coffee pot and toaster, or the circuit breaker would trip. A check at the post showed 112 volts. The sites we were on were all grass, fairly level, but soft. You will need pads under the leveling jacks. Good water pressure. We were told Wi-Fi had been upgraded to work better, however, as the last poster stated, it is fast early in the morning but as more people log on it slows or stops completely. Some of the interior roads are paved and some are red sand stone, and both are very rough and in need of repair. The entrance road to the park is also very rough and full of pot holes. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The park is very clean and appears everything is well maintained. Lots of kids, but there is enough to do in the park to keep them busy. Things quiet down at night. If the electric was updated we would probably stay here again, but until that happens we would not. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been traveling almost full time for 6-½ years and Cavendish KOA is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed in. The sites are large and the 50 amp sites are level gravel pads with nice green grass around your site. The fire pits are away from your rig. They have a lot of activities for the kids including arts and crafts every day during the week and movies and wagon rides at night. Great place for kids to have fun all day and the cost is included in your camping fee. Some reviews complained about the kids, but they were very quiet during our week long stay. If I had an area for them to improve on it would be their internet service, which is very slow during the day, but faster in the evenings. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though this KOA was in a convenient location, we would not stay here again. Other KOAs are in locations where they cater to large numbers of visitors and yet give enough room to make the stay pleasurable. This one seems to have the primary objective of crowding as many customers in as possible. Sites are extremely narrow and crowded. Sites can be no more than 20 feet wide. They allow 2 vehicles plus RV on a site. This makes it extremely difficult for back-in customers. The sand roads were rutted after rains. Entrances to bathhouses and offices were on slopes without steps or rails, which made handicapped access very difficult. The area for RVs to park while registering was too small to accommodate the traffic. Bath houses were extremely dirty, so much that we could not use the showers. There were so many children unattended and running in the roads and riding bikes it made it hazardous to enter or exit the park. Aggressive dogs, not properly supervised, rushed out in attack mode when I tried to walk my well-behaved canine. For senior citizens who are accustomed to quiet parks, this was not an enjoyable stay. We debated whether or not to leave early and seek another RV park, but did not do so because if we had left without returning their security entry key, we would have lost our deposit. The park may be fun for families, I would suggest that seniors look elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice campground. Grassy sites, easy pull-through sites available and has wagon rides for the kids. Walking distance to two local attactions. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As far as a place to park your rig and see Prince Edward Island, this is great. This is a typical KOA campground. Wi-Fi is sporadic, but if you use it off-peak, it is ok. A lot for the kids to do and a lot going on. We were here during several days of thunder storms. The roads flooded frequently. They even brought in gravel to fill some large mud holes. Pull through site was very roomy. There is no cable TV and limited broadcast. Some sites along the woods have the satellite blocked out. Since you are so far north, the dish points almost horizontal. There is a State Park nearby, but it will not accommodate big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campsite if you have children, however, for older folks with less tolerance for many kids... it's a zoo. We are moving to another campsite because of the noise and close campsites jammed together. As stated by another review, having to renew the wifi access every 24 hours seems customer unfriendly. The campsite is close to many activities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a standard KOA, very close to Cavendish activities. Highly recommend Avonlea (Anne of Green Gables), you can stay there all day and has a great afternoon tea! As for the KOA, it has a jumping pillow and a daily kids program from 9-11. The only complaint is that you have to get a new WiFi code every 24 hours, which is a pain! We camped here in a Motorhome.
First KOA I've stayed in in 20 years. Beautiful and exceptionally well maintained. Grounds immaculate. Since this was the off season, CG staff spaced out campers nicely. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is probably the nicest KOA we've ever stayed in. It has excellent 50 amp power and as noted previously it is clean and well cared for. There seems to be a site for everyone here. Lots of tents around the perimeter and all sizes of RV's . Lots of children but it's not noisy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Huge back in and pull through sites. Located near Ann of Green Gables sites, and central location on PEI provides easy access to sites all over the Island. Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent WiFi throughout campground. One of the best KOA Kampgrounds. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If only all KOA's were as clean and nice as this one! Owners very pleasant and accommodating. The pool is heated but the air temp makes it a bit cool to get out. Our motorhome had plenty of room and 50 amp service. The grass site is well manicured and does not have bare spots, how do they do that ? We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We debated staying at this one or at Marco Polo, just for one night. This one was fine. Wifi was excellent and free although our access was cut off promptly at 9 am the next morning, even though we could stay until 10 or 11. Sites are a little close together. All appeared to be full hookup. Several caravans were there at the same time -- all sizes of rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely park, wonderful hospitality, great location (can walk to Tim Hortons-doesn't get better than that!!). The kids loved the pie/ice cream social, treasure hunt hayride, and petting zoo (I almost came home with a kitten!!) I loved the security, quiet and water/30amp/sewer. Staff was great with suggestions of things to see and best beaches to swim at. Highly recommend it. We were going for two nights and ended up re-scheduling relatives to stay a third and wish we could have stayed longer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is a solid average KOA which maintains the KOA standard of cleanliness, facilities and friendliness. It’s located a quarter mile from the highway, so there’s no road noise. Close to the well developed Cavendish Beach area, it’s convenient to shopping, water sports and lobster dinners. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We booked a specific site before we left only to discover they had moved us to a different, smaller site when we got there because some other campers wanted to be grouped together. After getting setup we spoke to our neighbors who told us they had asked for the site we were on because they had family staying in the campground and they wanted to be together and they were told they could not be grouped together. The bathrooms were not very clean and needed a major update and re-plumbing. Overall this campground is starting to show its age and is starting to get rundown. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I agree with the other July 2013 post. What I would add is that I was here after some rain and the road was messy to walk on and you can track it into your MH. I'm from the US and Americans will go crazy trying to adhear to the tough recyle rules with 3 different bags. Pizza boxes have to be scraped of food first. Napkins go in 1 bag while newspapers go in another. They even mentione items like bubble gum, q-tips, etc. To adhere to their rules I would have had to take my dog's droppings out of the plastic bag that I put it in when i picked it up and then put it in a different bag than the plastic bag I picked it up with!! They do have a dump station, but it's tight to get in there and it's on the WRONG side on your way out? I would came here again, although I would check out the National Park across the street first. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate shown is based on a weekly rate. Park is nicely maintained. It is very large but half the park is for primitive camping. Roads are dirt which is a drawback for dust and mud. Sites are gravel/grass and were long enough for our 40' fiver although our truck did have to park sideways in front of it. Ample spacing between the sites. Only the spaces in Section F around the edge are 50 amp (back-in). RV sections are open but surrounded by trees. If you want satellite in Section F, and 50 amp, you need to get odd numbered spaces 1-13. You can walk to the Cavendish Boardwalk and are very close to all the major attractions on Route 6. WiFi was free and was fast most of the time. Slowed as park traffic picked up in the evenings and weekends. We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this campground for a week and, overall, had a great experience. The campground is very conveniently located near Cavendish beach and many of the Cavendish attractions. We were in site B15. This strip of sites was a bit unusual to me as you pull in with the back of your trailer (and hookups) parallel to and facing the road and the front facing the trees. However, once we were situated it was quite a nice site and private. The sites in the rest of B and E looked nice as well. Lots of trees for the sites along the outside. What I saw of the tent sites and A, C and D looked very nice for tenting. Lots of trees, shade and privacy. The facilities were pretty out of date, but we had full hookup so just used our shower and toilet. We had some electrical problems with our post but management was quick to have someone come and replace the breakers. The pool was decent but we didn't swim much as the weather was cool. All in all, for the price this is a great place to set up and explore the island. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites in section "F" are large, fairly level, and are full hookup with cable TV. As this time of the year it's very close to their closing time. The park was not very busy, so we had our pick of numerous sites. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Would stay here again. But must say that on our next visit to Prince Edward Island, we will more than likely choose a park elsewhere, so that we may visit another area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped here for a week (June 27-July 4) and really enjoyed ourselves. We were in the "B" loop on site #34. Very large sites, grassy, roads were both gravel and paved. Excellent Wi-Fi reception and we had cable TV. Restrooms & showers were somewhat outdated but very clean. Close to all activities and attractions in Cavendish. We would definitely camp here again. Very helpful staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Except for one newer washroom, the other 2 were very dirty and filty. Also our lot was very muddy. We had to put carpet strips at the door entrance. We changed the picnic table we had for the one in front as it was old and the benches were cracked. The water pipe was holding with tape and disconnected when we started it. We did not have to shower as water was pouring and we could not stop it. It is strange that this campground is a 4 star and a member of the CAA. We sent an E-mail to the owner but never got a reply. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is HUGE - 500 sites and the noise level is high. We were directed to take a road to the site which lead under low trees - the worst scraping our RV has ever received! We could have taken another paved road and backed in, but the office staff seemed unaware of this. Thirty amp power is marginal, water pressure is strong. The park Internet is unusable during the day - way oversubscribed. We did not have a chance to check the bathrooms/showers during our stay. Good site spacing for such a large park. Some shade in some sites. Paved interior roads, sites are grass. Jacks sink into the ground, even on large blocks. Very busy resort area with tons of restaurants and amusement parks all around. We might come back for an overnight stay, but this park is just too large and busy for us to relax in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Marco Polo is an immense campground with large and level sites. There are a large number of seasonal campers and a large number of children. There are many transient sites available. We had a 50-amp site that was very spacious. Wi-Fi was adequate and we had Direct TV access. Cavendish is a strange mix of natural beauty (national park) and tourist trap (amusement parks). The countryside is beautiful with rolling hills of varied shades of green.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Without question the best park on PEI if you have a Big Rig. Some 50 amp sites are available, good Wi-Fi, plenty of elbow room. Downside is a lot, I mean a lot of kids; however we've stayed here twice over the years and it's the only park you want to put your Big Rig on! We found this park using Big Rigs Best Bet book. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our daily rate reflects our early season stay at Marco Polo Land. The posted summer rate is #41.90. This is a large, well-kept campground which includes a restaurant, an inn, a decent camp store and numerous play areas and family activities. There are both open sites on grassy areas resembling a golf course, and wooded areas as well. Our open campsite was exactly level, and wide and deep enough to easily back into. Even though it has rained for our entire stay, the site never got muddy. Marco Polo is about a mile from the Green Gables House of the 1908 novel, and just a bit farther from the beach. There is an adequate number of bath houses scattered throughout the park. The only negative is the lack of cable TV and only a handful of channels accessible by antenna. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground during a long holiday weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The park wasn't too overcrowded and the area where we parked wasn't a high-traffic area. There were plenty of children around but for the most part they were mindful of traffic through the park. It is advertised as a family park but it still was comfortable for a party of five adults. There are nice fire pits available at every site. Hookups for a tent trailer were not in the most convenient locations as they were at the edge of the site amongst some trees. We will camp again! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We were told by many people that this was the campground to stay in Cavendish. It is definitely not an adult park. This park is for young people with children. The place is full of children on bikes, who do not care about cars coming and going. I usually do not mind if there are scads of children, but these seemed to be unruly. The sites are large and level, but we did not find the check-in staff friendly or helpful. They could not provide any information regarding propane for your RV or answer other questions about the area. There is an information center a few miles away and they are very helpful. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground. The sites are very wide and room to pull the tow vehicle on the site. The sites are grass, level and terraced at many. We use a 30am site, water was good. Sewer was in a bad place. It was almost under the trailer when we first pulled into the site. Wi-Fi access points were plentiful, and accessible. Only problem many of them would not connect to the internet. We had to go to the laundry to get on the internet. I ended up going to a laundry a couple of miles away and got on the internet through a motel close by. Roads are single lane and cause a problem when someone else is going the other way. Both of us have to drive partway off the road. There are nice trees around many of the campsites. Only problem is they are so close it is difficult to pull into the site. We stayed here a week and would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent an entire month at Marco Polo Land and enjoyed the campground very much. We have a 45' motorhome and there was more than ample room for us with lots of elbow room. We have stayed at hundreds of campgrounds across the US and Canada and this one is truly excellent. Very good attention to detail and maintenance is obvious throughout the park. Very conveniently located in Cavendish and a very nice family oriented park with lots to do for the kids. We heard nothing but positive comments from others here as well. We highly recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was very well kept but we found it very large with tight security. Our site was very nice but not as secluded as we would have liked. The pool was great and the location close to Cavendish beach was nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in the big trailer section, sites were HUGE and quiet. Pull-up was a breeze and hook ups were good. Because of demographic in our section, the area was really quiet. Nearby showers were hot even after 10am and were clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a large campground located within 2 kms from the Cavendish Beach. Tent sites are large with good tree coverage. Facilities are clean and hot water for showered. Has areas for kids away from general population. Staff are friendly, good knowledge about the sites to fit your needs. A+ We camped here in a Tent.
