15 RV Parks near Kitchener, Ontario
Jul 2017 - $47.00
The information given by the camping guide, the website and by telephone was misleading. There is a huge swimming 'paradise', but that is not included in the price; you've got to pay a lot extra for that and other things to do. None of the 11 slides is accessible for children below 1 meter. There is one separate pool that can be used by people staying in the campground. It is a simple and ok pool with a life guard. Otherwise there is really nothing to do and there are no playgrounds in the campground. It is next to the river which is nice and a nice long walking trail passes right through. There is one building with showers and restrooms at a one (lucky) up to five (unlucky) minutes walk. It is near the public parking of the resort, thus also used by other visitors and people attending parties organized there. And thus very dirty most of the time. - Josh2017

We arrived at 7pm with a 23ft trailer, the sites are small, difficult to back into and garbage left over from the last people at the site. We had to gather our picnic table and fire ring. The narrow roads and no signage makes it difficult to maneuver. There were 5 bathroom stalls and one door was locked and another was clogged. We arrived on a Sunday and it was a mess! I wish I had my Lysol wipes before going in there. They seemed to have some attention to them come morning. Not nearly enough washrooms for the amount of sites and only 1 dumping location. The smell of sewer was apparent. There is no separation between seasonal and visiting. Very loud, our 10 year old was frightened at 2am.
It's pretty clear that this campground focuses on the water park. The water park was alright, plenty of seating, umbrellas are nice to offer, lifeguards seemed good, some maintenance of the pool is required (tiles and stone coming off). Overall, the kids enjoyed themselves but if you're looking for a relaxing quiet time this isn't the place. The factory right across the street doesn't help the mood lighting for the evening. - Chrissy8

We stayed at the Chalet (main) campground. It is close to a road near an industrial park so the traffic noise is a concern but we were in the middle of the park so it was not too bad. Site was large enough and there are trees around but no privacy between sites. Interior gravel roads are poorly maintained and have large potholes. Washrooms and showers need some TLC and are dated and dirty. The picnic tables are in poor shape.The value came from the "Big Splash" camping package and our two grandsons- five and nine-really enjoyed the water area, mini golf and Funworx. The campground itself almost seems like it is treated as an afterthought and with upgrading it has the potential to be way better. The 'camper pool' is not near the 'Chalet' campground or the 'Glen' campground for that matter and it is a long walk, or short drive, but when we got there it was 'icy cold' and even the boys would not go in it! The hot tub there was OK. While the campground site numbers are clearly posted, the signs for the rest of the complex are not very specific, although once at the campground office they did give us a detailed, but small, map of the complex. The office closes early and there is no security. Speaking of which, although this is not fault of the campground itself, we had a tablecloth and clothesline and pegs plus one tea towel stolen from our site while we were all at Funworx. This is the first time this has happened to us in many many years of RVing.
We cannot comment on Wi-Fi, as we travel 'off the grid' when camping. - Ron and Lynda

I stayed at the campground for three days starting Thursday Sept. 7, 2017. Our friends picked this campground and I must admit an amount of trepidation about any campground with a cute name. On my arrival I found the staff very friendly and helpful. One of them lead us to our site in a camp golf cart. The only negative was the no sewer site. We were in site 318 and our friends were in 317. 318 is directly across from the pond and on a large end site. The site was clean, level and well equipped with a fire ring and nice picnic table. The view was great. The campground is very large with mostly seasonal sites but our area was all for transient campers and was really great. There were lots of geese, heron and swifts. We could hear coyotes at night off in the distance, but considering how close this campground is to the city, it was remarkable for being quiet. Overall a really good campground. We will return. - eorge T

We stayed with a 43' motorhome and found everything very tight. The only pull throughs with 50 amp had no sewer. Although there was a dump station, we were unable to get to it due to a parked vehicle at a park model on the turn to the dump station. We were guided to our site by a young girl who had no idea how to guide a big rig. We had to drop the toad and change sites in order to squeeze in. Would not recommend for anything larger than 35'. No interaction with guests after check in; no garbage pick up at site. Would not repeat the experience. Had to physically remove a pole from the ground to make the turn to get out. - Rob and Karla

First time we have stayed here and we will be delighted to come back again. We had a full service site and when we had a problem with the power supply the staff were there within 5 minutes to resolve it. For such a busy park it was quiet and peaceful, especially after dark. A great base for exploring this beautiful region. - Chris_m

Campground is operated by City of Cambridge. It is well maintained with clean washrooms and showers. No reservations. First come, first served. "Honor Box" to deposit the $15 per night. 3 night maximum. Local residents can only stay by special permit. Very wide sites with mature cedar hedges between. 7 sites with 15 amp power and 7 with 30 amp. 3 sites with water. City bus stop 8 minute walk away. We stayed 3 nights and were all by ourselves. Open to public dump station and water supply. - normsoo

Great small campground just outside of the city. Plan to stay again. Just like a staycation but with all the camping bells and whistles. The seasonal campers are very friendly and inviting for the events that are on the weekends. VERY clean restrooms. Bring your darts and games as the pool and games area are always available to utilize. - kmnpcampers

Nice family run place. Is almost all seasonal, but some short term available. Has it's own VERY small lake (there is no pool). Great place for kids. Very friendly. We had a wonderful time there and will likely return. - rpm2203

This could be a nice campground, but maybe it attracts the wrong crowd. In the morning when we left the men's washroom had seen the camper from hell. Toilets were plugged on purpose, in one stall excrements were used to write obscenities on the wall. I hope this was an isolated incident. - wpr

Beautiful campground, once we found it that is! (Campground website says it's in Cambridge but you will need to program your GPS for the City of Flamborough or Hamilton, as if you indicate Cambridge, it will lead you nowhere and wondering where to go next. From exit 268 on the 401, it's about a 25-min drive to the campground entrance). The campground has sites of all sizes from x-large to medium, either pull-thru or back-in, all with 2 picnic tables each and a fire ring, most with lots of privacy with trees/shrubs in between sites. There is a gated entrance; they give you a swipe card to enter which was no extra cost. We camped the week before school was out for the summer and there were plenty of empty sites. We walked the Boardwalk Trail around the lake and climbed the Lookout Tower. There is no internet available anywhere in the campground so please be aware. We had a few tv channels. As for their alcohol ban, we brought some along but drank it discretely (we enjoy some wine with our dinner). Park staff (young students) would drive around the campground a few times a day and waive hello; not sure how much the alcohol rule is enforced but we didn't see anybody interrogating others about it. Didn't appear lots for children to do, though some were fishing. Anyway, we enjoyed this natural & peaceful campground and would return again. - naturelover

This conservation area is generally very heavily shaded and treed with fairly tight access roads. It is also quite heavily used. We found the access for our 36 foot fifth wheel to be extremely tight, despite the fact that they advertised access for vehicles of our size. The campsite signage is poor, making access even more difficult. In addition, the large dense trees meant that we had no satellite connection. On top of that, the place does not have a laundry and is very heavily used. We would not stay here again, particularly considering the rather expensive price. - wandrr

Been here 3 times, on the south side furthest from the train tracks. Barely hear the train if your AC is running. Lots of tree coverage. Some mosquitoes. We only go for the kids. - Cannonball

This campground had nice size yards for each site and a very nice firepit ring. There is not a ton of shade for the non-seasonal sites. Unless you are a permanent, seasonal resident, you are not allowed to use the swimming pool. But everyone does have access to their "waterpark" which consists of a very nice swimming lake, a large inflatable water playground and a water slide. We really enjoyed our stay here and hope to return at some point. A few drawbacks to note: a train goes through at regular intervals, so if the sound of the horn bothers you, this might not be a place for you to stay. There is virtually no cell phone reception and we were unable to get any antenna reception for TV. They also charge an additional $10 residence fee for your stay besides the nightly charge. It's a bit pricey, but you still get a lot for what you are paying. - happy wi camper

We camped here in a travel trailer on what they called a double site (we had family on the site in a pop up). What it turned out to be was a small site that they charged us double for. The quarry was loved by our teenage nephew, until he came out with a leech stuck to his foot and had his shoes stolen. Our 3&5 yr olds liked the splash pad but were not big enough for the other water attractions. The big surprise is the train, not a train ride but an actual CP rail train that screams threw the center of the park all day and NIGHT and sounds it's horn LONG and LOUD, our 3 year old son was terrified and we had to let him sleep with his ear phones on (that he would wear to watch pro mod race cars). That staff was rude and belligerent the prices outrageous ($10 for a small bag of wood), no camp store, because they have the food concession at the beach (which took 15 min's to walk to from our site). Overall we had an awful experience at this park - chevelle

Beautiful safe campground, lovely pool, clean washrooms. Nice quiet family friendly park. Playground could use updating. It's not really safe. It is a wooden handy man special that makes you a little nervous with little ones (splinters, falls, etc). Owners are friendly, seem to be on a bit of a power trip at times. Not tons for kids to do, but the activities committee seem to do the best the can to organize activities. Not sure if they let in weekend campers any longer (only seasonal) as the info is not on their website. Seasonal guests only. - User3551

Stayed here for a week while visiting family nearby. Arrived on Civic Holiday and the place was packed. Staff at checkin was cordial and helpful. Back in site with a little bit of gravel and grass. Utilities worked fine - no problems. This looks like an old, repurposed farm, so everything is out in the open and there is no shade. 1/2 of the park are full time/seasonal, but are pretty neat and well-kept. Our site was immediately adjacent to the dumpsters which were full when we arrived and didn't get picked up for a week (I assume because of the holiday). Staff came around a couple of times and tamped them down with a backhoe....which just succeeded in stirring up the flies. Pool looked good (but crowded). There were no campfires allowed due to a burn ban in effect. You pay for wifi - and it was terrible. Use your own hotspot. They charge for visitors - $5 each for seniors). Good security with strict gate access. No cable, but we were able to get satellite very easily since there were no trees.
This park met our needs for a convenient spot close to family. I wouldn't call of a resort - that's a bit of a stretch. - FireFlyer

Since we were here last, 4 years ago, many more sites have been added (I would estimate an additional 50-60).
Still only 2 washers & 2 dryers in the laundry !!
In the Ladies washroom only 2 sinks with no water available at 1 of them.
Kids Splash Pad is now finished and open, but the main pool was overcrowded and "Adult Only Swim" sessions from 4 - 5 pm daily were non-existent.
Advertised regular activities (Euchre, etc.) did not happen & we were told they haven't happened in more than 3 years.
The "Club House", which consisted of 2 old school portable a few years ago, STILL consists of the same 2 old school portables, but both are always locked unless you get management to open them for you.
WiFi is $6.00 per day!! It is OK but don't try to Skype or do anything more difficult than reading email & basic browsing.
Management/ownership appears keen to get every dollar from customers, keeps expanding the number of sites, but has done little to improve the infrastructure.
Groups of teens regularly congregate near the laundry/washrooms well after dark even though park rules say them must be supervised and on their own site after dusk.
This COULD be a great park, but currently, in my opinion, is average at best. - IANDG79

Site # 157 Stayed here 30 nights. The campground is clean and well maintained. Very few trees throughout the park and none in the north section where 50 amp and sewer is available. The roads and sites are dirt/gravel. The south section is dedicated to the seasonal RVs and most have add-ons, etc. The campground hosts events throughout the season. There are plenty of activities for kids; pool, water features, playground, fishing pond. Tent camping is allowed. Check-in was easy. The office has short hours on most days. A pass is needed for the gate which needs to be re-issued every week. The train can be heard occasionally, but it’s minimal. Sometimes the approach to TOR changes and planes fly over. The only other noise is from the typical weekend camper that thinks they are the only people in the park and make noise until very late. The campground is rather new. They are still adding sites (the area we were in is the newest), improving the playground, etc. Hopefully they will add some trees. In a few years this should be a very nice campground. 50/30/20 electric, although 50 amp is only in the north section along with the sewer. Most of the campground is 30/20 and water only. With no shade the AC ran a lot to keep the RV cool on sunny days. The site is not level; blocks were needed to level the coach. Good quality water. Steady pressure (40 PSI) except occasionally on the weekend. OTA reception is fair with few channels. Internet: Pay. $20 per connection for the month. Good for most Internet activities. Streaming was fair and you cannot stream US sites (ABC, CBS, Hulu, etc) in Canada. Very small laundry, near the pool. 2 washers, 2 dryers. Older machines. Did not use. Same showers as the ones used for the pool and cost for hot water. Did not use, we use the shower in our coach. Large pool. Busy most of the time. Staff pleasant, talkative. Tried to get a different site (with trees) but got no cooperation from staff. They seemed reluctant to let us move. Many events on the weekends which causes the campground to fill up. Remote, quiet area. About 10 miles to shopping, etc. The usual issues with weekend campers. They are there for a few days and plan to get as much in as possible; noise, partying, smoldering campfires, etc. We stayed here because the campground we wanted was full. We will probably find a different campground the next time we are in this area. - Wiyndog
