Went back after our last visit a couple of years ago. Kids like the park and asked o go again. Still find the pool area over whelming. They are soaker pools and very busy with children, crowded as they are popular. Children sliding and jumping and not paying attention to others, parents need to be more on the ball. Still love the place. Large adult only hot pool. Service is A1. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stopped here for one night on our way to Toronto. We paid $81 CDN including taxes for a good sized pull through site which was very close to the main building, store, pools, etc. Pretty pricey for us as we didn't use most of the stuff, but it was in a handy location for our trip. It looks like a great place for kids - lots of stuff for them to do. There are some fun waterfront bar/restaurants nearby. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed this park and would definitely go back. Our site was small so we were thankful it was a pull through. The bathrooms were clean and we were glad that there was lots of activities for the kids. It was an unusually hot weekend so being in the beautiful pools was a little scary at times with kids jumping in on top of other kids. Having the slide is great fun for the kids but a big dangerous when the pool is crowded and kids swim in front of it. Having a store on site is great in case you forgot anything. The park is awesome and the kids loved it. It's a bit pricey compared to other campgrounds and I'm sure that to some people it isn't worth paying the extra money to camp at this KOA.

Kid and Adult friendly. They run activities all week, which is a huge plus. Love the treats with movies and the loser Bingo.Kids love the glow and water wagon rides. We always feel welcome. Great campground always improving it. Two pools one heated and a great Adult hot tub. Great with animals. Wish they had a fenced dog run but my family loves this campground.

Had a great time, staff very friendly and a 'make it happen' attitude. Pools are a little small for the amount of people. Lots of organized events, great for families. Most activities included with your stay. Quiet park in the evening. They escort you to your spot and ask if all is OK and if you need assistance in parking your unit. We will be back.

Overall we give this facility fairly high marks. The entire camp was clean and well maintained. There were lots of staff. Attention to detail was obvious, including daily delivery of newspapers to each site, delivery of firewood right to the fire pit (upon purchase), etc. This is an extremely 'family friendly' camp. On the negative side, its a bit pricey, even with KOA discount. Also, be aware that this facility is not handicap accessible. There are no washroom or shower facilities with wheelchair access. Inner roads are also not paved for those needing wheelchair accessibility. The on-site store has limited supplies - come fully stocked! We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here the last weekend in May, so the campground was less than half full. I found this overall to be a good campground for families. The pools were amazing, nicely landscaped. The entire pool area was surrounded by a glass-like fence which really helped keep the wind chill to a minimum. One of the pools has a kid-friendly hot tub which seemed to be quite popular with the younger folks. The trailer sites aren't very private but that seems to be the norm for a private campground. We booked an upgraded back-in 30 amp full hookup site that backed onto a field designated for dog walking. Nighttime we enjoyed listening to the frogs in the pond a bit further away. That part was good. The upgraded "patio", or decorative stone sitting area was a bit of a let-down to be honest. It consisted of reddish coloured gravel for the ground cover and a very small wrought iron table with 4 chairs and an umbrella. The wind level prevented us from using the umbrella, and the size of the table was too small for a family of 4 to sit down comfortably for a meal. I'd really have preferred a picnic table. The bathrooms were clean and they seemed to have recently installed new counter tops, sinks and hardware. The rest of the bathroom area looked a bit aged, albeit with a recent coat of paint. There seemed to be a bit of rejuvenation going on in the campground - they were in the process of redoing the front areas of the Kabins as well as setting the ground for new Lodges. The staff were always friendly. My kids really enjoyed the movie night with the free popcorn in the main office in the evenings. There didn't seem to be any other activities the weekend we were there with the exception of the movies and swimming, but that was most likely because it was early in the season. The tent sites in the back of the property were amazing - no services but the privacy and view seemed to be second-to-none (sites T24-26). We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park, only one pool was open, splash pad was not turned on, play area needed some maintenance. Quiet campground, nice but small stes. Deserving of it's good reputation. Staff very helpful. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We loved this KOA. It is very family and pet friendly. What we really liked is that all activities, i.e. bingo, jumping castle, special bbq's, ice cream sundae socials etc, are all included with the nightly rate, no extra costs which are typical at KOA's. Owners are very friendly and make this a very welcoming place. Very new deluxe sites have wrought iron table and chairs, above ground fire pit, colored gravel and nice landscaping. Yes sites are close together but so are most KOA's. We will be spending many weekends here. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We choose this park for its childrens activities and they were excellent covering a large age group. The sites were small, but service excellent on all parts. Only down side is pools are very small and unsupervised by both KOA and other parents an accident waiting to happen. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Travel Trailer.
