Had occasion to visit the park in May, as well as in July. Advice to other campers please do not write a bad review about the park as, if you do, I promise you will get banned. If you write something negative on their facebook site, it gets immediately deleted. Was nice to see basketball lines painted on the court. The hours that the café is open has improved. The roads remain rough so go slow. The beach remains neglected as not too sure how often it gets cleaned but however often, its not enough. The smell of dead fish still remains. The ownership attitude still has not changed. Such a shame for anyone desiring tranquil time. Apparently the flogging will continue until the ownership attitude changes. We camped at Mississippi Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park for 8 years. The people that stay at the park are amazing. The site sizes are good. The owners and people that work at the resort do not know how to treat customers. Be careful that you do not prepay for anything in the park as you are not getting any refund. Visitors pay extra and are restricted to amount of time allowed to visit. Even family are considered visitors. You have to pay extra for the pool as well for your visitors. Children need to be supervised under 12 years of age but if you don't want to swim you still have to pay the fee to be a supervisor. There is no bathroom close to the pool so you question where people go. The beach water is unusable and the beach and shoreline is dirty with dead fish. The shoreline is rarely cleaned so the area smells. The restaurant opening hours are not consistent. We had overcooked food on numerous occasions. The public bathrooms where not cleaned regularly. If you needed to report anything to staff you had to make an appointment. The main maintenance worker was constantly not available. It could be a wonderful park if the owners where different or changed. The area and people who stay there are fantastic. We camped at Mississippi Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is our 3rd season at this resort on the East Shore of Mississippi Lake, just 2 miles outside of Carleton Place and less than an hour from downtown Ottawa. Let me start with the positives. The campers at the resort are amazingly friendly as we were quickly welcomed, followed by many occasions of birthday parties, boat cruises, happy hours and morning coffee chats, while enjoying the lake views.

The pool is salt water and kept clear at this gated resort that offers key to all seasonal campers. Park has great facilities and events for kids to play and enjoy as most campers feel comfortable allowing children to go out on their own to play. Three weekends in the summer the park brings in a local band for music and dance. While park offers free wifi, since we arrived it's so unreliable. The distance the washrooms are from the pool (approximately 500ft) always bring into question how often the kids just use the pool as their washroom facility and the reason we stopped using the pool.

Unfortunately the family that currently operates this resort is going through a family crisis with the parents in the middle of a pending divorce that's dragged into the mess, 2 adult children and two grandchildren. This has moved their focus off maintaining a clean beach, keeping bird mess of docks, and general timely clean-up. Park neglect would be the simplest term to describe its facilities and we can go days without seeing someone working here. Owners seem to be making emotional decisions versus operating the facility as a business. Customer service seems forgotten as owners prefer to antagonize campers! Campers placing their name in a move cue get ignored.

The resort used to have a café open from 9 to 9 with ample servings. Now it might open at 9:30 or later, and have noticed it closed as early as 5:30 pm. In any event, be prepared for slow service when it is open and warn your visitors that come into the park, when they go into the restaurant to register.
