A lot of seasonal and permanent sites, but mostly neat and well-kept. Nightly guests are assigned to sites near the front, which are mostly good pull-throughs. My biggest complaint was the "free" Wi-Fi was extremely slow and only really accessible from the office patio. I was told that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, and this was just "one of those days." As someone who needs about an hour of Internet per night for business reasons, I am getting tired of finding out that promised Wi-Fi just does not exist, even with a booster. There are very few campgrounds with electric along this stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway, so am disappointed with results. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Motorhome.
This is a nice place to stay along Route 17 in Ontario, Canada if you have a big rig. There was plenty of space between sites, however, the road between the rows of sites was pretty narrow. If the park isn't full you can drive through the site in front of you without having to make a tight turn, otherwise it would be a challenge. It's right off the highway but quiet and there was good signage off the highway, driving from the west to find it. WiFi was good, no cable TV. No sewer hook-up at the site. They have a dump by the entrance but we didn't need it. We would stay here again but would ask for a site in the front row for easier access to get back out. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Motorhome.
Unexpected treasure . Planned on spending one night but extended stay an extra day. Well maintained campsite on the lovely Serpent River. Near highway but no problem with noise. Owner very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Management efficient and friendly. Sites grassy with level gravel bed. Water electricity great. On the Serpent River for view. Near the highway but noise was not a problem. Excellent pool at 4.5 feet. Friendly campers. No sewage hookup and wifi reflected in rating of 7/10. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Travel Trailer.
There are few campgrounds for big rigs on the Trans - Canada highway, so Serpent River is a welcome sight. It's easy in and out. Has electric and water, no sewer but the pump-out has easy access on the way out. (Although it's on a little incline.) The biggest drawback is the highway noise. Fairly good Wi-Fi but it comes in and out. Sites are fairly level and grassy. Stone Ridge Golf Course is 13 miles away and is a nice course in good condition. Food at the golf course restaurant was also good. Would stay here again especially if space were available away from the road, or motorhome windows were closed.

Okay as a stop over, easy in and out! Few sites that are 60+ ft. Didn't use the pool but it looked dirty. We could smell garbage constantly... It was overflowing and never was emptied! Owners weren't overly friendly! One channel on the aerial... No cable. Go to 'Clarences Fish Market' up the road ( Hwy 17) towards Algoma Mills. Best smoked trout we've ever had! We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Motorhome.
I agree with previous reviews. This is a decent older campground along side the Trans Canada Highway. Our grass site was level and roomy, the rest rooms are spotless. The staff is friendly and helpful and there is a "chip truck" on site serving fries and other food. The noise from the highway is a presence, but not terrible. We stayed here for one night en route west. And the Wi-Fi worked well. If you like to watch TV in your rig, you'll need a sat dish. There's no cable TV and no on air reception. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It is an older park but well kept.The owner is friendly and there is free wifi. As mentioned previously, the trans Canada Highway is very noisy. However, this is a good overnight stop as there is nothing else in the vicinity that you would want to stay at. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is right on busy Highway 17 with full view and noise of the trucks and cross Canada transports, but at the same time convenient for many overnighters. Higher rating than I would give is due to the extremely nice and helpful owner. She goes out of her way to accommodate. Bathrooms and showers are dated and limited, especially when they knock down one of the only 2 shower stalls on both sides for "maintenance", but they are clean and well stocked. Laundry facilities are average, but usable. Elliot Lake area is nothing special and 20 miles away, but has some really nice canoeing lakes and is the closest place to grocery stores, so come prepared with supplies. Very large grassy pull throughs were appreciated. Seasonal people are set up on the sides and in the back, though would not want to be on the back side due to the train track that intersect the whole park and is closest to the back. Whole "bus is a shaking" when that thing rolls through! Only heard the train go through once in the 2 nights we were there, however. River is nothing special, but does have a boat launch and is nice for the small boat fishing set up. Free WI-FI very appreciated. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Motorhome.
Nice campgrounds along the Spragge River. We were there early in the season so the pool was not open. There were good graveled level sites. Right on the highway so there was some traffic noise. Very clean bathrooms and showers. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Motorhome.
This is no longer a KOA, but called Serpent River Campground. Site was great, easy pull-through. The only concerns I had was that the dump station is on a mound and my front wheels on the motorhome were on the down slant by the time the dump valve was aligned with the sewage hole. I didn't get a complete dump. Very friendly staff. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Motorhome.

One night easy in and out. Pretty much nothing around except nice little restaurant / cafe across the street. They also have square dances on weekends I believe. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice clean RV park. Spots are wide and level mostly sunny with a few trees. Larger spots than usual at a KOA. Easy access from Canadian 17. WIFI was weak. We would stay here again. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the perfect campground for an overnighter if you are traveling across Ontario. Some road noise and twice a day train noise, but very well-kept and clean. The pull-thru sites are large, level, and easily accessible, making for an easy stop-over to stay hooked up to your tow vehicle. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Spragge only has 1 restaurant (cafe) and no shops at all. Nearest are 17 miles so make sure you pick up anything you need before you get here. Tidy camp and good value. Wifi great. TV reception almost non existent - 1 channel with antennae booster. Friendly staff and all amenities spotless. Good overnight stop. We camped at Serpent River Campground in a Motorhome.
