Stayed for a week with two other families, summer tour of the east. Staff friendly and helpful. Place is spotless, road in from main road is a little rough, but it belongs to the municipality. Keeps the traffic at a safe pace. Sites are grassy, full service available. One pet peave is other campers cutting through your spot for a short cut to the washrooms/showers. Can't teach respect I guess. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Most kids would give this place a 10 because of the pool, playground, bounce platform, and all the other kid activities. While all KOAs have these things, I have to admit that this place has them in abundance to make kids happy. For me and most adults, I can say it was well taken care of with grassy and gravel camping spots. Sites are comfortably spaced apart, though not as spaced as most state and provincial parks. Once the weekend crowd left, it was very comfortable. The WiFi also was weak, but got substantially better after most people had left, although I would still have needed my booster. Had some Rogers cell service. Check-in people were very pleasant and helpful, and the campground store carries milk, bread, eggs, and a few other essentials. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Warning: Many campground and area attractions, especially those that attract kids, close down immediately after Labor Day, including some restaurants and gift shops. In addition, pick up groceries in New Brunswick before you come across the bridge. There are only a couple of very small stores nearby unless you drive to Charlottetown, which is a good hour's drive.

There is a very good bakery and seafood shops nearby in North Rustico.

Cavendish is a great KOA. The location is perfect. Right in the middle of Cavendish, which is a tourist type area. Water parks, amusement rides, mini golf, attractions, and all the tourist trap shops are close by. The National Park beaches are right down the road. Take a ride to Rustico and visit an old time fishing village. Or head down to Charlottetown and see the historic city. All are worth doing. PEI is one of the most beautiful places in all of Canada. The campground is great. The sites are large, and mostly level. They are particularly long. There was plenty of room for our trailer, and our tow vehicle, and had plenty of length left on our site. Lots of stuff to do at the campground too. Movie nights, jumping pillow, playground, RC car dirt track. It is a very nice campground. The bath houses are clean. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice large grassed KOA, with a moderate number of trees. Some sites are gravel, others grass. Most sites slightly sloped. Paved roads. Very clean nice bathhouse with hot water. Wife said laundry could have been cleaner and half of dryers out of order. Very pleasant lady at checkin/store. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Motorhome.

Upon first arrival I was not impressed with the sites in this park. They are very small and crammed in with neighbors. They are all open sites and no trees. They allow 2 vehicles per site in addition to the RV so it is quite crammed all the time. The upside to this park was their rec staff who were amazing. They kept the kids busy and were full of energy, their kids kamp was great. The pool was large and clean and open 9-9. Wi-Fi was very poor. A Great spot for kids, but wouldn't want to be there as an adult couple. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We wanted a 50 amp site, however we ended up on a 30 amp. Never really been a problem at other parks, but the electric was barely usable here. You could not run two appliances at the same time; example, a coffee pot and toaster, or the circuit breaker would trip. A check at the post showed 112 volts. The sites we were on were all grass, fairly level, but soft. You will need pads under the leveling jacks. Good water pressure. We were told Wi-Fi had been upgraded to work better, however, as the last poster stated, it is fast early in the morning but as more people log on it slows or stops completely. Some of the interior roads are paved and some are red sand stone, and both are very rough and in need of repair. The entrance road to the park is also very rough and full of pot holes. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The park is very clean and appears everything is well maintained. Lots of kids, but there is enough to do in the park to keep them busy. Things quiet down at night. If the electric was updated we would probably stay here again, but until that happens we would not. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Motorhome.

We have been traveling almost full time for 6-½ years and Cavendish KOA is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed in. The sites are large and the 50 amp sites are level gravel pads with nice green grass around your site. The fire pits are away from your rig. They have a lot of activities for the kids including arts and crafts every day during the week and movies and wagon rides at night. Great place for kids to have fun all day and the cost is included in your camping fee. Some reviews complained about the kids, but they were very quiet during our week long stay. If I had an area for them to improve on it would be their internet service, which is very slow during the day, but faster in the evenings. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Motorhome.

Even though this KOA was in a convenient location, we would not stay here again. Other KOAs are in locations where they cater to large numbers of visitors and yet give enough room to make the stay pleasurable. This one seems to have the primary objective of crowding as many customers in as possible. Sites are extremely narrow and crowded. Sites can be no more than 20 feet wide. They allow 2 vehicles plus RV on a site. This makes it extremely difficult for back-in customers. The sand roads were rutted after rains. Entrances to bathhouses and offices were on slopes without steps or rails, which made handicapped access very difficult. The area for RVs to park while registering was too small to accommodate the traffic. Bath houses were extremely dirty, so much that we could not use the showers. There were so many children unattended and running in the roads and riding bikes it made it hazardous to enter or exit the park. Aggressive dogs, not properly supervised, rushed out in attack mode when I tried to walk my well-behaved canine. For senior citizens who are accustomed to quiet parks, this was not an enjoyable stay. We debated whether or not to leave early and seek another RV park, but did not do so because if we had left without returning their security entry key, we would have lost our deposit. The park may be fun for families, I would suggest that seniors look elsewhere. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Motorhome.

A very nice campground. Grassy sites, easy pull-through sites available and has wagon rides for the kids. Walking distance to two local attactions. Would stay here again. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Travel Trailer.

As far as a place to park your rig and see Prince Edward Island, this is great. This is a typical KOA campground. Wi-Fi is sporadic, but if you use it off-peak, it is ok. A lot for the kids to do and a lot going on. We were here during several days of thunder storms. The roads flooded frequently. They even brought in gravel to fill some large mud holes. Pull through site was very roomy. There is no cable TV and limited broadcast. Some sites along the woods have the satellite blocked out. Since you are so far north, the dish points almost horizontal. There is a State Park nearby, but it will not accommodate big rigs. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a great campsite if you have children, however, for older folks with less tolerance for many kids... it's a zoo. We are moving to another campsite because of the noise and close campsites jammed together. As stated by another review, having to renew the wifi access every 24 hours seems customer unfriendly. The campsite is close to many activities. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

It is a standard KOA, very close to Cavendish activities. Highly recommend Avonlea (Anne of Green Gables), you can stay there all day and has a great afternoon tea! As for the KOA, it has a jumping pillow and a daily kids program from 9-11. The only complaint is that you have to get a new WiFi code every 24 hours, which is a pain!

First KOA I've stayed in in 20 years. Beautiful and exceptionally well maintained. Grounds immaculate. Since this was the off season, CG staff spaced out campers nicely. We camped at Cavendish KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
