Very good campground. Nice sites, not too close to your neighbor, and not bothered by highway noise. It is really not that loud. Pleasant and helpful staff. Site was nice graded, tidy with picnic table and fire/pit. We would recommend this park and would stay here again. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Efficient staff, friendly. Industrial scale campground, with few trees in the main lower area. Wi-Fi only works at reception. Pool area could have done with cleaning due to volumes of users. Very close to the Trans-Canada Highway. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

Very loud. Right next to the Trans-Canada highway (aka the busiest highway in Canada.) Vehicles are packed like sardines. Neither me or my family were able to sleep because of the excessive traffic noise. Clean park. Your basic KOA. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The park is clean and well maintained. The store has lots of groceries, souvenirs, and camping equipment. They had lots of activities for the weekend, including hayrides, pancakes breakfast, and an ice cream social. The only things I did not like were the fact that the showers are in the main office building, which is a hike, and Wi-Fi is only available at the office, not at the sites. Taking my laptop down there a couple of times a day was inconvenient, especially since I am from the U.S. and this is my only way to keep in touch with family and friends (and not pay roaming charges on my cell phone). We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice site, easy pull through. They didn't take me to it, but the map and signage was very good. Didn't use the pool but I noticed a lot of people did, and they seem to enjoy it. Easy to get to. I would stay here again. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has two levels. The lower level is generally where overnighters go and others without reservations. The sites here have not been maintained for many years. Some driveways are lumpy and others are a water hole when it rains. The upper level sites are much better. This lack of maintenance is a great shame since overall its the best park for miles around. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects an extended stay rate. Nightly rate is in the $40.00 range. The owners of this park make a great effort to make this park a really great park. They are continually making improvements to the facilities available for guests to use. This year they were completing a shuffle board game. They are also working on new shower facilities for the upper group of sites. I would give this park a 10 anytime if they would just put in some time on the sites themselves. Our site was a catch basin for the rail run off. I had to rescue our clogs which were floating down the road after a good rain. Anytime it rained our site was inundated. A little work and the flooding could be controlled. For the Thunder Bay area you are limited to RV places and this is the best one in the area. Owners very friendly and will do what they can to make your stay a good one. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I give it a 3 only for the fact that the staff do make a very good effort to be great about everything. Regarding the place itself. Well, because it is a 'cram them in exercise' I felt the place resembled a "refugee camp." Also when we were here: at around 3 am a young group were roaming around hitting the sides of campers with their hands and feet! Did not complain in the morning, just packed up and left one day early. The place is staffed by mainly under 21's, so what can they achieve when one complains. I have used other KOAs in the USA and they are far, far superior to this one. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Travel Trailer.

A nice campsite with large grassy spots. We stayed on the lower level. Staff was very pleasant and cooperative. Washrooms were excellent, very clean. It was a little far from the downtown core. Wi-Fi was somewhat inconsistent. The only fault I have is that they changed for cablevision, and for the money you only got 5 channels. I would camp here again.

Large campground, easy to get to, with lots of activities for kids, with a great well heated pool. Different sections with the majority of the pull-throughs in a "field" at the front of the park closer to the road. No fire pits. The "back-in" sites are up a hill at the "back". We have stayed in both. The back-in was nicer, but harder to get in/out. The field site was very convenient near the pool, mini golf and office. Excellent Wi-Fi. Negative - no shade or fire pits in the field, could hear the train and highway when outside the motorhome. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

Disappointing choice overall. The campground is good for kids with a nice playground, small pool, and trout pond. Many activities that would appeal to children. The campground is set in a pleasant valley and has many trees. It is close to a major highway which made it rather noisy even at night. Our grassy site is far from level and required four blocks under one tire, and several other blocks under the others to become level. Wi-fi is spotty when the campground is full. Electrical failure, too, but don't know why. Marked this campground down as sites are not level and are not well spaced. Also grassy sites and long entry road is compacted dirt. Adult swim hours at 9 p.m. for a half hour but the water is an unattractive color! We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

Well maintained park, with friendly staff, in a good location for sight-seeing. Some gravel sites but most are on grass. Roads have dust control applied and speed bumps help prevent speeding. Laundry facilities including equipment is in top order. Wi-Fi does not always have a strong signal especially on first day of 2-day stay. Cell phone and data stick were also weak but that may have been due to our service provider not having a strong local network. Lots to do for everyone and there are many extra activities on weekends. One of the better KOA sites. Recommend reservations in July and August. We stayed here before and will stay again. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for 5 days and quite enjoyed our stay. The staff had to be the friendliest of any private park we have stayed at. We also found that the prices in the store were very reasonable from basic food items to sweatshirts. It is only a few kilometers from Thunder Bay made this location ideal for sightseeing and shopping. We would highly recommend this park if you are in the area.

NOT your typical KOA. It had a lot more than usual, wagon rides for kids, ice cream social, fishing pond, good supply store. A very friendly helpful staff. Site wide and hook ups easy access. Only negative was the sites were gravel and not perfectly level. We enjoyed our two day stay and would come again. Stayed with two other families traveling along with us in their rigs (two motor homes and one fifth wheel). We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

This was the typical KOA. Very clean, lots to do, great help from the staff, well maintained park. They had a variety of areas for kids, travelers, and seasonal campers. Some areas had shade and some were for sunny days. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Travel Trailer.
