Way overcrowded pool area on holiday weekend. No staff supervision witnessed for safety in the pools near slides. Water clarity was in question with swimming population. Adult only hot tub was not monitored either. Very child oriented park activities. Great if you have 'em.

Very overpriced compared to many other KOA Campgrounds we've stayed at. Nice location, but not at that price. We won't be back for that reason along with the population of kids here. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Motorhome.

On a scale of 1 to 10 I would say the park is about a 6, near average, but with a good play area for kids. At a huge cost of $105 plus tax per night I would expect a lot more than all gravel, no cable and a slow Internet connection. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Motorhome.

Staff is very friendly, however steer clear of them helping you park your RV. They gave us directions on how to back our 37 ft 5th wheel (50 plus feet long w/ truck) in the back row - which proved rather difficult - since there was little room to do so. We watched them try to direct another 5th wheel into a corner lot (way too small for it) and that took them 40 min and 10 tries. They have fantastic activities for kids - and a beautiful play area. They have a deck near the pool thats pet friendly (a nice surprise). The roads are pretty narrow. The sites are much smaller than advertised (wide angle lens were clearly used in the images). When we arrived all the sites had picnic tables in the middle of the site, so me and my 83 yr old father in law had to carry it to the grass - not fun. Their are quite a few seasonals (mowing their grass and their neighbours for 2 hours on a Sunday morning; not something I really want to hear on my vacation). The camp store is decent. Their bathrooms are spotless and there is a nice rec area in the basement of the main building. Only washrooms are in main building - so a bit of a walk unless you are camped in the next street. Many puppy pick up stations and they claim they are adding a dog park. (We did not camp with our dogs this time). Wood was $7 a bag - and turned out to be off cuts of 2x4's!! that is not camp fire wood and a bit of a rip off. They do deliver the wood and the newspaper daily. All in all this place is way too expensive and we will likely stay somewhere else next time. If we had kids with us then i can see the value as they have definitely catered to the kids with activities etc. Some nights ran $80.00 A night. This place also wanted you to wear wristbands - but they stated as long as you had it with you that was fine (ie in your pocket to show) if you wanted to participate in events. Did not need them to enter park. (In fact park security is rather lax as we drove in several times forgetting to put the yellow mirror hanger up and we were not stopped). Lots of chipmunks :) Who are friendly. Overall, nice park, clean park, but overpriced for someone who is just camping to see the local sights. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a decent campground with lots of activities for kids and families. It is maintained well and the sites have reasonable space between them. That said, it is extremely crowded. Every possible place that could accommodate an RV has one, giving the campground a very crammed and crowded feel. We use KOAs a lot, but this is much too expensive for what is offered. I would look elsewhere if I was in this area again. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Motorhome.

This ridiculous price includes the KOA discount and taxes, for a park without Cable and with three pools so small that adults don't have room to swim. My back-in site was so off-level that I couldn't use the sewer hookup because my tanks are forward of the dump valve, therefore on my site, downhill from it. Probably a blessing, as the portion of the sewer pipe above ground was loose and removable; could have been a disaster. For those with dump valves amid ships, bring a long sewer hose, as all I saw was rear hookups. The power/water post had been backed into and not repaired, but worked well. Very leaky tap at one of the dump stations. Lots of equipment and activities for the kids. Altogether an average KOA which charges 20 dollars too much. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Motorhome.

It was OK. We have stayed in nicer KOA's. The pool area is great for kids but very crowded on a nice weekend. The bathrooms were OK but could be a bit dirty at times. The showers are in need of make over. The kids activities were very "lame" and are in need of improvement. I'm not sure why they would bother, they are so bad. We stayed at a rainy time and some of the lower(elevation) sites were flooded out. We camped at 1000 Islands / Ivy Lea KOA in a Tent.

The sites are small and most require leveling - some needing a great deal. I stayed in one of the patio sites and it was not worth the extra charge. The sites are narrow, there is no privacy and there is a drainage ditch located behind them. These appear to be newly developed and it would have been better to develop less sites and make them worth the charge. The pull through sites are grass and gravel. These required leveling as well. The pools are small and one was in desperate need of a good cleaning. The roads have big puddles after a rain which mixes with the exposed dirt to create muddy conditions. The owners and staff are very nice and the bathroom facilities were clean. I would consider other parks if returning to the area for comparison. I would stay here again if nothing else available.
