This RV sites in this park sit back off the highway so it is very quiet. They are pull-though, mostly grass, level, and there is a buffer of trees between most spaces. Sites are big rig friendly, especially 40' and shorter; 45' should take off their tow vehicle before trying to park. Rate is with Good Sam discount and $5 additional per night for 50 amp. Remember, rates will vary due to exchange rate. There is a book exchange in the office/store area. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Don't miss Kakabeka Falls and Kakabeka Falls Village about .5mi/.8km from the park. It cost us $3CN for an hour visit at the falls. It is about 16mi/25km from the park into Thunder Bay.

Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Our site was a level grass/dirt pull-through that included a table. Good privacy from other sites, but not suitable for satellite reception due to trees. There are more open sites available. All hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but found 1 channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi was strong and internet access was fast. Laundry had 2 washers and 2 dryers. Each was $2.50 a load. Wife said they were clean and above average. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

Very quiet, private sites. Wi-fi is good. If you are a big rig then turning into the site can be very tight. I suggest driving towed vehicle to site and checking it out prior to trying to pull in. We are 45' and did alot of wiggling around before we could get into the site. They could have chosen a better one for our size. Once in here it is great!! Wild raspberries and Saskatoons growing right outside our door. We did not check out pool, etc. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice people, clean washrooms, clean showers. One of the nicer shower rooms I've used while camping. Easy to find, fairly quiet for a tent, and fairly private sites with a great campground map. We were just here for an overnighter and it was great for that. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Tent.
No problems to report about this RV Park, except it was too pricey for what we received. The site was fine, the power was consistent and the water pressure good. I agree mostly with the comments below. Would consider an alternative RV park or campground next time due to price/value. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

As has been mentioned in previous reviews the RV area in this campground is separated from highway by several roads of manufactured homes. Most of these residences appear to be inhabited by seniors, so there is little noise generated from this neighborhood. Unfortunately, road noise is still a problem, although truck traffic becomes relatively light in the evening and on weekends. Most of the sites are separated from each other by large bushes, which offer privacy. Additionally, most of the campground is shaded by large trees. I used the park as a base for exploring the Thunder Bay area. If you stop here, be aware that it is a 1/2 hour ride in to the city of Thunder Bay. The rate given is in U.S. dollars and includes taxes. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.
Very quiet park. Some "residential" manufactured housing up front, but doesn't really detract. Some grass, weeds and branches could use attention, but we did see the owner working on smoothing the roads. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Happyland is located about 10 miles west of Thunder Bay on the trans Canada Highway. Sites are level, and most are heavily wooded, providing good privacy. Some may be a bit narrow for both slides and awnings. There is a rail line fairly close to the park, but I was awakened only once by a train during our 3 night stay. There are a fair number of seasonal guests here, but most seem to be in a separate "residential" area. This is a very nice park and I would definitely stay here again. Just a couple of minutes west of the park is Kakabeka Falls which is the second biggest in Ontario (Niagara is #1). We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a nice park about 15kms outside of Thunder Bay. It had a pool and hot tub which opens at 5pm. We don't use the facilities wherever we travel as we are self contained and prefer to use our own in our Motor Coach. If you are using a Telus HSPA Wireless Device you will not have any service in this area. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a very green and pleasant facility, however it's quite a ways (16 miles) from the city of Thunder Bay. Nevertheless, it IS just down the road (2 km) from the Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park, a stunning attraction that is second only to Niagara in Canada, I believe. The campground also has a very nice dog walk area that doubles as a great hiking trail for 2.5 km. The owners appear to be making significant improvements in the property and everyone I spoke with thought the place was improving. Level sites with good hookups. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.
This is a nice but pricey park near the falls, with wide level sites that might not be long enough for huge rigs. Lots of trees, so satellite TV reception may be difficult. Free Wi-Fi with a strong signal. There are nice hiking trails at the back of the property going through the woods. Overall it's a decent park, but a bit expensive for my tastes. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Happy Land Campground is an ok park. We occupied a large pull-thru (site 36) with full-hook-ups (30 amp). Because it's quite wooded, we were not able to lock onto a satellite connection for the internet, but were able to lock onto the satellite for TV reception. However, they do have reliable free Wi-Fi that reaches at least as far as site 36. It looks like mostly full-time and/or seasonal residents. However, the residential area is segregated from the "over-nighters". The park is just off highway 11/17 and there is some road noise, but not terribly intrusive. We chose this place for its proximity to Thunder Bay and we would camp here again. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

My visit did not start well. When you enter the office is to the left and has a red lettered sign saying pull up. After check in you have to go around a tree back to where you came. To do this, if you have a big rig, you will have to disconnect. Then as you enter park you will see the small black lettered sign saying "big rig parking", so when you go in stay right. Just a hint to the owners all important signs should be the same color and size. Site was do able in my 38 footer but not the largest I've ever had. OK one nighter but next time might try the KOA on other side of town. You are about 14 miles west of Thunder Bay at Happy land. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.
