We were looking for a campsite tat could take our 40ft 5th wheel and had sewer on site. This one showed it could take big rigs. The check-in was very friendly and we had a choice between a back in or a pull-through. We checked out the back-in and even though the reception said we should be able to fit, we did not feel we would as there was a huge tree at the back and we did not want the back end in the tree. Interior roads are narrow and it takes a bit of maneuvering to get around (parked cars at corners don't make it easier) and the only way we could get around and not hit a big tree on the corner was to go over someone's grass. We decided to go to the pull-through. Sites are narrow and fairly level. Internet was slow, but OK. It is not really big rig friendly because of roads and 30 amp service. If we had not needed sewer we would not have stayed there. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park hasn't changed much since the last time we camped here back in 2005. Many of the sites are for seasonals. Our site was a gravel fairly level back-in. Table and fire ring included. Grass between sites, but still felt close to our neighbours. All hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but found 3 channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi was slow and got bumped a few times. Recent rains caused the lake to submerge some of the campsites. The water has subsided, but still some water on road nearest the lake. Due to lack of suitable campgrounds in the area, we probably would stay here again. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We parked here for two nights solely for the purpose of visiting Sudbury, so it was adequate for our needs. Right beside the highway, no fire pit or picnic table at our site. Mostly permanent sites. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Friendly checkin. The site we had was as close to the highway as you could be. We put on the AC fan to cover the noise. The Wi-Fi would drop me off during the evening. It worked good at midnight. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Motorhome.

I have never given this low a rating to a campground before. The people checking us in were teen age girls who didn't have a clue. They gave us a site to go to and when we got there it was occupied. When I called them they really didn't know what to do and were confused. I suggested the site next to us and they checked and said that would be ok. I pulled in and it looked like the hookups were on the wrong side go I got the 5th wheel turned around and hooked up and discovered that the hookups for the site I was on was on the other side originally. It got worked out ok. The Wi-Fi is non existent. If I could have found another place to stay I would. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly management. An old facility with the majority of the sites being permanent or seasonal. Most of the trees seemed to be where the permanet or seasonal rigs parked. The laundry was clean and functional. Wi-Fi worked great. The back-in sites can be a bit tight lengthwise, but it is a great location for a couple of nights. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground was very convenient for our overnight stop. The owner was super friendly, and she gave us an easy drive-through site. We had no problem with utilities or WI-FI. We enjoyed the beautiful lake and fall colors. The campground is gated so that added a feeling of security. Some needed updates were in progress. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Mostly permanent units badly in need of replacement. Lots of "junk" everywhere. Water and electric hookups are tenuous at best. Wi-Fi is slower than a phone modem, when you can connect. Evidently the owners sold the better half of the park to new operators across the entrance road. It is much nicer. Unfortunately I didn't see it before paying.

This campground was OK for our one night stay. We didn't have reservations. When we arrived we were greeted by a nice preteen young lady who had to make a few phone calls to find out if they could squeeze us in. Her and the manager were willing to do what it took to get us in and settled. The site was OK but the hook ups were a little shaky. The 30 amp plug was hanging by wire inside broken conduit. I shared water with a neighbor via a Y piece. The lake water was clean but the dock area had plenty of trash near the dock. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We liked this campground and found it very clean. There are several sites for transients with full hookups. The bathroom was clean and very nice. We stayed 3 nights and would do it again. We were on the lake front. There's a big play area for the kids and swimming area. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground looks a bit old and tired when you arrive and the office area needs a spruce up, all dark and dingy. First impressions are important! We were in the main campground, described in a previous review as “all seasonal.” That is not the case now. It is about half and half, and the transit sites all have full hook ups. The bathroom facilities were very good and the laundry looked OK too. There is a lovely sandy beach with an area of the lake marked off for children to swim in from the beach, also a good playground and recreation area. The open area next door described in previous reviews now appears to be a separate campground. There is a good tourist information office next door to the west. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the worst campgrounds I have been to in thirty years of RVing. The roads are potholed, the bathrooms padlocked and the dump station full and out of service. The section for the permanent campers seems to be better, but the transient section is very neglected. We will not stay here again. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a hard time finding Carol's campgrounds. There was no sign on Hwy 17, and we actually had to back track. There was a very friendly office staff. The site itself had no trees, and the grass needed attending. There was garbage in what was suppose to be our fire pit (which had no actual pit). As we had dogs with us I cleaned up all the garbage before we took them out on leash. The dump site is hard to get into; my husband had to drive around through the roads to get in at the right angle to dump. I did use the laundry room, and it was immaculate, and the machines did a great job so I guess there was a bit of good and a bit of not so good.

This is a huge campground, however most of the sites are not really available and are overgrown with weeds and grass. I believe the campground is under new ownership and they are trying to make improvements, but you can tell that things are really seedy. Our site was very level. WiFi is available for $10 for 48 hours of connect time. The facility is just off the Trans Canada Highway (Route 69). This is very convenient, however you do get a significant amount of highway noise in the evening. There's a designated swimming area on the lake near the seasonal sites, but it didn't appear to be too inviting, so we didn't take advantage of it. We would stay here again.

As previously mentioned, there are two sections and we were put into the open field section as it seems the main section is all seasonal. The building with the washrooms and showers is padlocked. There is a beach but it looks very uninviting because of overgrowth. There is a fair amount of noise from the highway which is right beside this campground. The WiFi is free for 30 minutes and then there is a $10. charge for 48 hours or $5. for 3 hours. We would not stay here again. We camped at Carol's Campsite and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
