10 Parks near Cardinal, Ontario

We always tend to stop by for a weekend in October as they have the best haunted house for young kids (6-12 yrs). This is a KOA and the level of service is right up there. Facilities are clean, staff are helpful (they helped dump at the dumping station), pizza place on site (weekends only in Oct), etc. My kids liked the bouncy field (air inflated field which acts like a trampoline) very much. - Gus_976

Beautiful park, decent lots (gravel pad, fair amount of space between sites For a koa), tons of things for kids to do - splash pad, pool, park, jumping pillows [big & small] toddler park, lrg water slide ($5, specific dates and times), on site chip wagon and pizza (specific dates and times), baseball field, swings, Kamp k9, rental bikes, mini putt ($). Bathrooms were super clean, and free showers really make this ideal (note: there is no sewer hookup available at this campground). What makes this campground lose some points is the male owner, who does not seem to enjoy himself at all. He is very short-tempered, and not at all chatty, despite us trying to make the effort when we had to be in close proximity (ie. He runs the chip wagon and pizza stand). His wife is very friendly and is who greeted us upon arrival, and chatted with us when we requested a pump-out service (stay 5 days and you get 1 free pump out). When you arrive you will have some rules read to you. I tend to take this personally, but with some thought, it's an indication that they have had problems to deal with in the past. Park is super-busy on the weekends, so we were happy with our Sunday to Saturday stay. All in all, would recommend a visit. - Larinator

I didn't enjoy this park as much as I have others due to how close together the lots were. We could here our neighbors talking in conversational tones while they were inside their camper next door. Two dogs in lots directly across from each other started barking every time they were both outside at the same time because they were only about 6 feet apart when on their tie-outs. I also felt like I was in the middle of another neighbor's fireside chat because of the close proximity. Having said that, it is clean, well maintained and there are lots of activities for the kids including pool/splashpad, jumping pillow, very cool play structure, waterslide, craft corner, life-size chess board and pedal car rentals. The owners are friendly enough, but expect rules to be followed explicitly. Not a bad thing, but it can be a bit tense. I wouldn't refuse to go back, but will not look to camp there again if other options are available. - JJ Spectre

Nearly all sites were sunny, pleasant location, vast, well mowed grassy areas that were well tended - great for walking dogs. Seagulls loved the location, right next to the river, we watched with amusement at camp host who exercised his setter several times a day, chasing the gulls away, seemed very effective. The host was extremely helpful and guided us to our site - clean facilities. Our spot required only minor leveling, no obvious traffic noise from the HWY. - Dondi-496

First, the good: the park is a huge grassy area right on the St. Lawrence River, with shade trees at most sites. The customer service was outstanding and all of the staff very friendly. The sites were quite large, and although not very private, at least you weren't parked on top of your neighbors. The park is heavily patronized by day visitors, so its a little noisy during the day, but wonderfully quiet at night.
The bad: the site I was at and the one next to it had no water hookups, so the staff ran several hundred feet of their hose to our trailers. The water was very filmy for a day, probably due to sediment in the hose. Also, the water was too hot to shower with except early in the morning or late at night, because the hose was lying out in the sun. Since there were no sewers at the sites, you couldn't just run the hot water through till you got to cool water, because there was so much water in the length of hose they had. The water pressure was fine, though. Another issue I had was with the Wi-Fi. I don't mind when I get somewhere with no Wi-Fi, but I do mind being sold Wi-Fi by a third party who does not provide what is offered. The Wi-Fi service is run by a young man who does not have the skills required to keep it running. Also, he would not return phone calls or answer his phone most of the time. I will have to go to my credit card company for a refund. I do not think the park should keep sponsoring this individual. The service crashed for over a day and the young man told me he could not fix it because it was Sunday. It still was not fixed Monday. Finally, the seasonal residents next to me had several dogs that barked continually while I was there. I think the park management should handle this, rather than making visitors responsible for complaining to people who are obviously not well mannered in the first place. For these reasons, a park with fairly good potential was not the greatest experience for me. - KAP99

Great location, we stayed at a site on the water. The internet was a little iffy, good water, and power. The view is fantastic, the staff were helpful and nice..Not alot in Prescott...but we didn't need to go anywhere....you could bring a small boat...it looked like easy access. - new 5th wheeler

First time here. Heard great reviews. This is a leased managed park that is owned by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission. Grassy sites, no mats permitted and really you do not need them here. Water on your site, beaches are nice, pet swimming area. Lots of seasonals.
50 amp not available, but lots of big units using adapters. Our unit is 30 amp but did need the power reset twice. We weren't running everything, but it was a warm weekend.
Dump station and pump out service is available for a fee. 3 bundles of firewood run you $25 cdn or $10 each.
Great view of the St. Lawrence and ship traffic. 2km from Johnstown, On and 4km from Prescott, On. Ogdenburg, NY / Johnstown, ON International Bridge 2 minutes. You can view the whole bridge span from the park. Office and staff contact is basically office hours only. If you need wood/propane/pump out or power reset, you need to do it during office hours. - The Allens

We really loved this park. It is right on the St. Lawrence seaway. We had a pull-through site. The rate was Passport America and cash payment. This park has a large number of seasonal sites but very well maintained. The land is owned by some kind of Canadian Parks commission and all seasonal sites must be vacated in the window - the RV and all patios, sheds must be removed. This keeps the seasonal RV sites very clean and uncluttered. We would have stayed here longer but the park was full for the Canadian Civic 3 day weekend. - lyzzards

This is a State owned park. Very clean, on the shores of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Firewood available, they bring to spot. A variety of lot sizes, 4 dumping stations, power for big Rvs, tent sites. Grass is maintained, no dirt sites. Paved roads. We have been coming here a few times a year. No stores close by, pick up essentials in Ogdensburg or Massena. - The Allens

Our family camps here every summer. We love it.
Right on the St. Lawerence Seaway . It is gorgeous! Canada is right across the River. We enjoy fishing and swimming.
Most sites are grass with some trees on almost every site. We love section A which is electricity at every site 30 amp . Water spickets through out area to fill holding tanks before parking. Dumping station available before leaving. This section is pet friendly.
Picnic table and fire places at every site.
We have no problem parking our 36 foot fifth wheel. - Lor-perh

Excellent campground offering variety of sites with and w/o electric. On the St. Lawrence River. Mostly grassy sites, some paved and gravel. Some sites will flood if excessive rain is rec'd. Friendly personnel, will deliver wood if ordered. Wifi thru regional carrier per day fee. - naturepix

Nice park that only the Federal Govt could provide. Senior's get 1/3 off all year in the older Cedars section of this park and that comes with two free tickets to nearby Upper Canada Village. These discounted sites are either unserviced or with 15 amp electric but come with a beautiful view of the Seaway and shipping traffic. There are full service sites available in the newer part of the park. Dump station, potable water and toilet/shower house nearby. - Smasma

Very large grassy sites with shade trees scattered throughout park.
There was enough room on our site (and most sites) to just drive in and swing around into place, rather than trying to back in. - DCM/JMB

Jul 2006 - $24.00
Rate based on weekly stay. This is a real campground complete with fire pits, a pond, two pools, 3 playgrounds so lots of people and lots of kids. There is a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers but no place to hang up clothes. Sites are large. Drawbacks are no sewers but they do have a pump out service, pay showers and no paved roads. Very close to Upper Canada Village, short drive to Morrisburg for groceries. Campground has a store, a small snack bar, and a book exchange. Very few sites are internet satellite friendly. - Sandra

Stayed Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary & Nature Campsite and will definitely return there. Most sites are very wide, giving you ample room to backup/setup your trailer. The washrooms/showers are well maintained and are clean. Numerous trails to walk/bike on. Wonderful view of the St Lawrence so you can watch the passing freighters. - GandRHarris
Sep 2015 - $38.00
This is a very pleasant camp ground in a grassed "park" setting. Most sites are shaded with mature trees, some sites are in the open. A few sites have a nice view of Lake St. Lawrence but no views of Seaway shipping. Most of the sites have reasonably level driveways. Sites have both water and electric, dump station easy to use. The road into the park is long and mostly washboard gravel. - JTD2

This campground is actually in Ingleside just down the road from the Farran Park and is part of the Parks of the St. Lawrence group. There is a long washboard gravel road leading to the park itself but once there apart from the poorly maintained inside roads it's all good..a great view of the ships going by on the St. Lawrence river..large, well-spaced sites. individual showers, clean washrooms, a great Interpretive Centre and friendly staff. No real security and office is a good jaunt from the campground itself but this is a quiet area. - Ron and Lynda

The camp administrators are very personable and happy to give advice on where to eat, local activities, etc. Although there were other families with children, the majority of people at this site seemed to be pre-senior/senior, many with seasonal set ups. We stayed for three nights, and two of those nights the gate was closed to traffic by 9pm. No bigs, I just let the chain out and drove in, but it would have been nice to know if there was a curfew. There were no children's play areas on site, but there is a nice park about a 5 minute walk down the road. The park is lovely with pleasure craft and yachts sailing right past the door to our tent, much to the delight of my children (aged 6 & 3). There were no pools or splash pads evident in the immediate area, but for the price, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular. The only big shock/surprise was the fact that multiple trains go by the campsite each night, tooting their whistles! This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but we certainly were not expecting it! We would stay again. - HendersonClan

Great overnight park or short stay, mostly back in spots. No sewer, do have a dump station and fresh water fill up area. Located on the Rideau River. Beautiful village all services in walking distance. Parks Canada Lock Station next door. Free firewood, trailers are close together. Great value for the price and the Lions Club its a great organization. - The Allens

Check-in was fast. Young lady at check-in didn't provide directions to our site, as we booked online... They assumed that since we booked on-line, we know where the site is and hoe to get to it. Finally got to our back-in site, and site is the wrong way. Fire ring, picnic table (not there) were on the driver's side of the lot when backing in, which meant we would've had to go around the trailer to get to the fire ring and picnic table. Went back to the main office, and they clearly had no idea what I was talking about. I asked if I could then "pull-in" and drive on the grass, and was told, "it's ok, if no one sees you..." Went back to the site, pulled in, hooked up water and electric, only to remember we had no picnic table on our site. Back to main office, asked to get a picnic table, was told within 15 minutes. 3 hours later, still no picnic table. Went back to the office, told them, again... Within 10 minutes someone arrived with our table. I guess they dug it up from under the main office since it was EXTREMELY dirty... mud, spiders, spider webs, all kinds of critters and critters nest, and to top it all, was asked by the young lady delivering it, if I could get it out of the truck, since it's too heavy for her...
The campground itself is good, nice playground, a few seasonals but sites and trailers are well maintained. Location is awesome. Sites are HUGE, and I mean HUGE.
Campground is run by the Province, and staff could use a bit of client service course. They're not rude, they're obviously not RVer's, and therefore have no clue how to deliver good service. - Merveilleuse

There is an impressive view on the St.Lawrence River. There are great sites, with a small beach. When we camped, a lot of Giant Hogweed, a poisonous plant, was present on many sites, with caution signs. The sap from hogweed can cause blisters, burns, scarring and, in some cases, permanent blindness. The plant itself can grow to a dominating six metres. This apart, great place to stay! - pagir

Part of the St Lawrence Park Commission. There are two other campgrounds on the Long Sault Parkway. The eastern part of McLaren now has a crushed stone base for your RV, the western part is still on grass. Showers and dump station are a quarter mile east of the campground on the next island. Close to Upper Canada museum village, Upper Canada golf club and marina and the Battle of Crysler Farm National Historic site. 50 km of bike trails, beaches and family entertainment on summer weekends. Because of the large population of Canada geese beaches are occasionally closed because of a high bacteria count. - wpr
