This is a really beautiful campground. The owners keep it well maintained, with staff constantly on patrol for garbage, cigarette butts, etc. Although there are no sewer hookups, there is free on-site pumping. Our site was a premium site with a patio. My only gripes are 1) they only allowed one Wi-Fi code per site despite the premium price we were paying. 2) Despite free sewage service, the price should be lower. 3) The dump station on the way out was next to impossible for the first row to use. One additional note, the store and bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible. Despite all, we really liked this campground and we will come back. - N1Hub

Beautiful camp ground in the thousand island area. The area is VERY dark, not many lights so it is advised that you arrive before sun down. The campground has an typical lay out, but what is NOT typical is some of the hook ups are located opposite where you would expect them and they alternate from site to site. The map is about useless since it doesn't really show where the hook ups are on the site. So you might get lucky and pull in the right way the first time, you might not. Especially if its after sun down. Regardless the campground is beautiful. Some great star watching at night can be had here. Typical KOA amenities. Outstanding location. - Aridon

We camped at Rideau Acres several times over the past 5 years. Up until a few years ago we really appreciated the service and facilities. It has a large amount of seasonals and various types of campsites. In recent years there has been an increase in the number of sites but no increase in services (garbage collection, skunk control, cleaning of sites) which has caused us to camp elsewhere in the region. The check-in at the main entrance is hindered by a long line-up waiting to check-in and only one employee working inside the reception area, answering the phone and tending to guests. Their once well maintained park had become overrun with skunks which they refuse to control, telling campers that they are part of nature. As we have a dog, I no longer feel secure camping here. It is unfortunate as we had previously enjoyed our time camping at Rideau Acres and appreciated the amenities provided which was a plus (beach, waterfront, boat rentals,etc). - Off to Camp

This was our first stay at a Canadian park. They had no cable and Wi-Fi was available only at their store. The sites are nicely sized, but just grass and gravel. The park is definitely "Big Rig" friendly.
The park is very large and borders a lake, but very few sites have view of it. Perhaps if your plans include lake usage their fee would be justified, but I found them quite high considering no Wi-Fi or cable available. With the high Canadian tax, our site was about $60 a night.
They do have a great building to accommodate large group functions, so it was good for our group camp-out. I would not choose this park for a private stay due to the lack of Wi-Fi. - jpainter01

Advertise free wifi. Sure, if you want to go and sit in their store during business hours. Commuter train blasts through every hour all day and the frieghts continue on into the night. Impossible to sleep. Booked site for 1 week, left after 2 days. Only 0ne place to put garbage and thats a 5 minute drive, never mind hiking to it. Dumpsters are overflowing. Bathrooms and showers are too few and dirty. Showers have no place to sit or place soap and shampoo. - FrankSz
