Nice campground to visit the Kingston area. The roads and site placements are unusual, but workable. Lots of access to the water and variety of watercraft available for rent. The advertised WiFi at the office and hall did not work for our entire stay. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

We camped for one week and didn't see a single staff member in the park. Seasonal and longer term people were not friendly and very territorial. We are experienced campers and are respectful of written and unwritten camping rules but it seems many other campers here are not. People cutting through sites all the time. Sewer hook ups are high up from ground level. Fire pits are just wherever you want (no pit, rocks etc), just have a fire on the grass. Showers in the field area had no hot water both times we tried. Large camp sites though. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Recent Rally attendees found the Campground perfect for Rally needs. Relatively newer area has no fire rings, but campfires are allowed on site. A lot of on site activities, beautifully maintained property. Close to tourist interests. Lots of wildlife on the property....keep your camera handy. Lot sizes are really open and spacious in the NE 1-100 area. Nice walking trails. On site RV service available....very skilled. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. $54 CDN less Good Sam and Passport America discounts. Very nice RV Park, 50amp full hookups. Has a big hall building for meals, games, pool, ponds, peacocks, ducks, guinea hens and more. Very popular with locals. Would definitely stay here again. Not far from downtown Kingston which is a really cool town, old capitol of Canada. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

This park had a beautiful lake to look at. Nice place to walk the dog.

The bathrooms were full of bugs, everywhere. I spoke to the park manager and the maint guys said the couldn't spray the bugs because EPA says they can't use chemicals!!!! I don't know if that is true or not. I wouldn't go there again. Roads are dirt and lots of ruts ! Electrical weatherproof box didn't have a cover and larger wooden splice box was leaning over and the wood was rotten. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Truck Camper.

Fort Henry was closed and there were many people there that wanted to tour it. They didn't have signs telling of the hours of operation.

The bay and marina were beautiful and there were tours offered.

It was perfect Autumn weather for camping and the park population was sparse. The back-in sites are well laid out for spacing. We had full hookup, but 4 sites shared a common post for electricity and water. Each site had an individual 30amp outlet, but only 2 water taps on the post, therefore "Y" taps would be needed. Not sure if the office supplies them, and not everyone carries one of their own (we do). It is a large well provisioned campground alongside the Rideau Canal Waterway. Lots to see in the local region...1000 Islands Boat Cruises, Kingston City Bus Tours, Casino, Over 30 Wineries within an hour. Grass was a little long, but it's late in the season. We will return. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Large park - they seem to do a good job separating the areas of the seasonal stayers and the temporary (nightly) folks. The area where we were (M7) had some trees but was open enough to be able to drive around pretty easily. You may need to make a 3-point (or 2-point) turn when exiting so consider whether you want to hook up your car or not.

The garbage/recycling was all in the area near the entrance.

We had read about the skunks before coming - glad we knew about them because they may have been a shock otherwise. They seemed to be active near dusk - people with dogs made sure that they walked them well in advance.

We needed a place that was close enough to the US border to allow us to make a quick trip to get prescriptions and some other errands completed and Rideau Acres fit the bill. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Park has a security gate but in the area where it's situated, I'm not sure it's really required. Staff in the office were friendly and they have a well equipped store for some basic supplies plus an ice cream parlor. The park is very large and there are lots of permanent residents. The park has a lot of potential but it looks a bit "tired". There are a lot of trees and shrubs that need trimming as well as the grass needed to be cut on our site. Wifi is only available in their hall. There is a nice waterfront walking path. There are train tracks nearby but trains do not bother us. If you don't like them, you probably wouldn't like it here. Far enough off the highway that road noise is not a problem. Very quiet at night. We would definitely stay here again if passing through the area. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is very close to Kingston, Ontario where there are lots of things to do as well as shopping & restaurants. We didn't unhook this time because we've been to Kingston before but if you haven't been, it is a very beautiful city and worth seeing. There are 2 gas stations just before the park entrance. One for sure, has diesel.

Staffing issues which affected swimming pool operational hours. Pool closed during daytime and early evening when the outdoor heat and humidity was sweltering. Lake not clean enough to enjoy. Fire ban in effect, although this is not to be blamed on the park. Running water issues so that was down and so was the Internet. This is all at the same time and this park is not a cheap place to stay!! Also had a skunk family hanging around our site and lastly very dusty at roadside caused by speeding traffic. Yes only stayed one night.... We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed five weeks and this was our second visit. Spacious campground with lots of room, especially off-season. Surrounded by water on two sides and adjacent to Rideau Canal. Easy access off 401 but highway noise not too bad and park is very quiet at night. Sites are mainly gravel and level with many pull-throughs. Grass is cut regularly. WiFi not good except in clubhouse. Friday nights usually offer a theme dinner. Water quality and pressure was variable - make sure you have a filter. Easy access to all facilities. Kingston is a pretty city on the St Lawrence. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

We're staying for a month ($1050 including water, 30 amp, and sewer) at this very well-run park. The grounds are beautiful. Rideau Acres is one of the few parks in Ontario that is open all year. Laundry facilities are good. WiFi is non-existent at our site but there is a huge meeting room where one can sit with good connectivity. The sites are long and level though many are on grass, so we put supports under the jacks. Very quiet. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

NO CABLE; NO WIFI; good local TV English speaking channels. Very pretty park with tall pine trees on both sides of the site. Site is gravel and mud due to rains. Long pullthroughs with full hookups including 50 AMP. Park is very close to Kingston which is a lovely historic town with a beautiful harbor. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful campground with easy access to Routes 401 and 15. The view of the lake is breathtaking. Two swans were swimming on the lake every morning. There's a nice little pond with ducks, geese, chickens, and Guinea hens, and peacocks roam the grounds. The store is well-stocked. There's a large clubhouse that they call "the hall". The large pool, with lifeguard, is behind the hall. There are, however, lots of problems here. The main dirt road has nasty speed bumps that sneak up on you because they are not marked. Once you get past the main road, the other dirt roads throughout the park are narrow and winding, and it was very difficult to maneuver our 36' Class C. The sites are level, but the sewer hookup is so high off the ground we couldn't raise the hose high enough for the sewerage to run through. We had to stand there holding the hose up to drain it every time we dumped. The water pressure is very low. The trash and recycle bins are always overflowing; the smell is horrible and it attracts skunks. You cannot have your mail delivered here; you have to go to the main post office in downtown Kingston for general delivery. The wifi, which is free, is only available in the store. The laundry costs $3 to wash and $1.50 to dry (if you use high heat; if you use perma press, they don't get dry and you have to put in more money). Besides all of that, the people are rude and act as if you're bothering them if you ask a question (such as "Can we get our mail delivered here?"). Did I mention the trains? You hear their whistles all day and all night. We don't intend ever to return to this campground. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.
