We have been seasonal in the adult section for several years. Management has let this section go down hill. They have not put any money into this area. There is no cable TV, Internet does not work, dirt roads which cause dust storms by everyone using them and although the pads are concrete and a nice size they have never been cleaned and the dirt and mold is taking over. Management has said to several guests the if they don't like it they can leave, there's a waiting list.. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When driving in park drive extra slow. The dirt roads wash out in spots and they don't fix. All the washouts are on an angle and this causes a coach to rock.

Biggest tip....don't stay here

Nicely maintained sites with full hookups. We didn't take advantage of all the activities but there seemed to be plenty for families. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate based upon one night stay using KOA card. We stayed in a medium priced pull thru below the office. Sites vary greatly in price and you can choose how much to spend over a wide range. Ours was pristine with patio and rockwork borders. Wonderful restrooms and showers, gated park with helpful staff. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Not really in Barrie or near any stores or restaurants. Barrie is 10-15 miles south.

Beautiful park. Easy in, easy out. Everything works...even the Wi-Fi. The only negative I can think of is the high price. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We are rating this park highly because of the new 'adult' section that is beautiful and far enough away from the rest of the campground for a peaceful visit. The site had a concrete pad and a concrete patio with a wrought iron table and chairs. There is sufficient spacing between sites. Great wifi but no cable TV. It is rated at a 9 because of the cost. It was $76 per night with a KOA membership card and I feel that's too high. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Motorhome.

We have traveled coast to coast and this KOA has to be the top park we have stayed at in Canada. We are very particular with where we choose to stay and this KOA met our standards. The owners are extremely hospitable and are RV owners themselves so know what makes us all comfortable. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Motorhome.

This was not our first time at this CG. We prefer the adult area in the Cedarwood area. The sites are large, concrete pads, patios, furniture. WiFi was strong. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

In my opinion this is one of the premier KOA's that we have stayed. Immediately after a site is vacated, the staff are cleaning/raking the site, emptying the fire pit etc. One of the few parks that also pick up your garbage and recycling twice per day. Staff is very friendly and always more than willing to help out. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

They have an adult's only area, that is very nice. Concrete pads, great plants around the pad. Friendly staff, adult pool time, too. Very busy park. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice site. Not big, but adequate. Excellent WiFi. Staff are great. We had a female staff member and she was awesome. Lots of activities, but quiet in site 44 at night. Great pizza delivered to site. Would return. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful campground, excellent Wi-Fi. Our site was far from being level. We had to use all of our leveling material to get the RV level. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The adult section (Cedarwood) is very nice. We've stayed here before - and we love it. Very quiet, clean and large sites. Highly recommended. Full concrete sites with patios, patio furniture and shrubs between the sites. There is garbage pickup at the sites, pizza and wood delivery throughout the park. The staff are very friendly.

We frequently stay at KOAs – and this one is by comparison is very well maintained and clean. The staff is friendly. Firewood is delivered to your campsite, as is pizza and other hot food from their restaurant. The pools are very nice and clean. The recreation area is very nice. Our deluxe site (#103) was a pleasant surprise, having a concrete apron around the fire pit and picnic table area. It also looked out onto one of the common areas. Highly recommended. The other premium sites looked nice too. The adult-only area, set aside from the rest of the park is incredibly nice – and will be our future destination! The weekend we stayed they were having trouble with the WIFI. We will return here again. We camped here in a '34 Travel Trailer. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice campground that offers scenery, activities and food. The park is well kept with very clean facilities. Lots of recreational activities and all were in excellent condition. Sites were decently spaced with the pull thrus having mature trees and minimal traffic. The campground's only knock is that it does not offer cable (not available in the area). The pizza place on site caters to the campers and even delivers to your site (good food also). We camped at Barrie KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at a lot of campgrounds and have stayed away from most KOAs because they are usually not kept up well and are dingy. Not a KOA lover sorry. This RV park is nice concrete slabs for parking, clean, well maintained and excellent personnel. I would say if you are in the area stay at this RV Park. If we ever come back to this area we will definitely stay here. We camped at Barrie KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
