Nice park but not worth the $45 price. Clean facilities, good roads, easy access for a 36' motorhome. Good wifi and pick your site carefully for satellite. The staff is courtesy but not very warm and welcoming. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Very clean restrooms and showers. It seems most people who come here use it as an overnight stop. Not a bad place, but the sites are small so not really much space for having people sit around the fire ring (which you have to obtain from an out building). Quiet place to stay, no complaints at all. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Happy Land Park, owner at Happy Land Campground responded to this review

Thank you for making us aware of the water temperature issue. We weren't very busy at that time, being early in the season, so we only had one water heater on line. We have since put another water heater on line to keep up with the demand.

Owners were unfriendly and not welcoming. Didn't even greet us when we came in to make a purchase from store. Expensive for a park located adjacent to a noisy highway. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

We just stayed here overnight. We were surprised there were NO mosquitoes as we sat out until it was dark. Wifi worked fairly well outside. We did not use the facilities, but checked them out and they appeared to be clean and adequate. Nice separation of sites with trees and bushes. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

Be sure to visit the falls just down the street. It can be a quick 30 minute stop. There is a little town with shops just down the street also.

Nice campground, very clean. Wonderful heated pool and spa. The spaces are a little cramped for 40-foot with tow. You pay extra for 50-amp. Small free book library. The store is not useful.

In retrospect, we should have stayed at Fort William Historical Park RV Park. It was closer to what we wanted. We camped at Happy Land Campground in a Motorhome.

The restaurants in Kakabeka Falls are plain. For a treat go into Thunder Bay and eat at the Red Lion Smokehouse.

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.

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.
