This park is a bit tight for our 36' MH with tow, so we ended up with a long tour through narrow, dirt roads to reach our assigned section. We backed into a level, grass site between rows of nice evergreen trees that give a bit of privacy, but it was very narrow and short, with barely enough room to extend the slides on both sides of our coach, and parking for the car across the field.

We connected to the convenient water and electric hookups, but didn't bother with the sewer.

The WiFi was spotty, and when we inquired about it the manager was not very helpful, claiming it was due to our computer configuration. We knew this was not the case, however, when half the campers left the following Sunday morning and the WiFi improved remarkably--though it still cycled in and out pretty frequently.

The laundry facilities were large, clean and well priced. We did not use the bathrooms.

The staff at this park seemed oddly abrupt and indifferent, which is very unusual compared to other parks we've visited in the Maritimes. Overall, we felt the price was high for the amenities and services offered by this park. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Motorhome.

Since we were here last summer they have made improvements to one washroom, completely redone the other and relocated the laundry room to a more convenient location. There are lots of trees at the edge of the section C that we stayed in. The WIFI was perfect. The manager is very friendly and accommodating. We did not have a waterfront spot but it a short walk to the beach and water. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The 'Cows' store in Charlottetown is a must as is the Festival Theatre and Gahan's restaurant.

We really enjoyed this park. We selected one of the waterfront, extra wide sites. The view of the tidal river was lovely. The grounds are expansive and well maintained. Seasonal campers are in a separate area, so that the premium spots are reserved for travellers. The park was very quiet, with less than 10 units on the grounds on any night. That said, the sites are well laid out and, even on a busy night, there is good space between units. The owners enforce strict rules on the condition of the seasonal, so that area is also nice. The staff were excellent and helpful with any requests. The only negatives were the very dated, but very clean, showers and washrooms, and no escort to the site was offered. We had no problems finding ours, but we did witness others driving around looking for their spots, then entering the wrong way. The price reflects the KOA discount and shoulder season. We will stay here again. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here while attending the Shania Twain concert in Charlottetown. Although our stay was brief, we were rather impressed with the facility. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Store was well stocked. Areas that we saw were clean and up to date. We had a site facing the North River and although it is a river, it is tidal water with a nice beach. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed this park. It is the second time we stayed here. The park is well kept and clean. We decided to get a premium site which is $10.00 a day more. The premium site gives you lots of room and a lovely view of the bay. The only thing I wished for is that we could have parked with the back window of the fifth wheel to face the bay. Other than that it is a great camping, close to Charlottetown, etc. Would stay here again. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the most beautiful RV campground we have parked in so far on our journey across USA. Close to Charlottetown, stores, eating, shopping and gas. We loved that it was centrally located on the island so we drove our car to the east side on one day and the middle part the next day. The park is immaculate and we were here the last week of June and weather was great and hardly anyone here. We have a 36 ft RV and we parked in this large open grassed area and just backed in our unit very easily. Even though we were a ways from the office, we got excellent internet service and our satellite picked up our Direct TV signal great. Would highly recommend this place to anyone!!

Why do campgrounds always have to put sites under trees? This place went out of it's way to do this. Maybe a lot of folks like this; I don't; there is too much "trash" falling from trees. We stayed as a group so we were in a field before the main camping area. But many other RVs were there too. Only 30 amp service and sometimes barely enough high voltage to keep from tripping the pole circuit breaker. The sites and the area was all grass; well kept grass. Based on what I can tell from other campgrounds in the area, this place is a very good choice. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Motorhome.

This park achieves high marks for location, views, cleanliness, and attentiveness of the owners/managers. We camped in pull-through site 38 which was near the sea front. The main negative was poor drainage of many of the sites after rainfall and the occurrence of mud holes in the interior access roads. The sites would be better with gravel pads rather than grass and natural soil. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

When you have trouble upon arrival you can really see the park's true colors, and this park shined! There were some issues and I'm telling you, this team worked well & resolved everything beyond my satisfaction. Bu they don't get a 10 just for that! They also have a wonderful place. I enjoyed some live music, a quiet site, shade from the intense sun, and solid Wi-Fi. Staff helped me get a cab into town, where I thoroughly enjoyed my touring. I'm glad I chose to stay a few nights at this place. I was in good hands. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Motorhome.

We have never stayed at a KOA but we stayed here four years ago. The park is beautiful, the staff are friendly. We stayed here as a group of eight rigs for a Habitat Build for three weeks. The campground donated our entire stay to the local Habitat affiliate and they could not do enough for us!! The Wi-Fi is being upgraded. We had zero complaints while we were here. I would definitely come here again. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here as part of a group. The park is beautiful. It was quiet and peaceful with wonderful water views. The public buildings are being renovated and will be ideal once the renovations are complete. The staff was friendly and helpful with lots of tips of things to see in the area. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Motorhome.

Wonderful surprise. Great campground. RV sites in the area we rented were huge with a water view. It was well maintained and in good shape. The beach access and the beach are great. Lots of activities and facilities and it is close to amenities and the city. Only drawback was that several campers had coolers stolen from their campsites one night (including us) and apparently this is a common occurrence. More or better security should be arranged. But overall it was a great stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is far below the "KOA" standard. Park and local area knowledge by the desk personnel was "iffy" with a shrug. Access roads are narrow, one-lane, making big rig maneuvering difficult when alone and almost impossible when confronted with an opposing direction. If towing, early disconnect is a must but nothing tells you that. The shower/bathroom condition was nasty and caused me to use my own facilities throughout my stay. Sewer "connection" is a hole in the ground somewhere near your assigned place - it might be UNDER your rig like mine was. All in all, a very uncharacteristic KOA experience. There are many RV parks in the Charlottetown area. If I ever return, I'll try one other than this KOA. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Motorhome.

I agree with everything the previous poster said. We are loyal KOA campers, but this one has made us question that loyalty. While the staff is friendly, they have no knowledge of the area, sending us on a wild goose chase for a seafood market. The intersection they sent us to turned out to be parallel streets. Roads are extremely rough and very narrow. Parking of tow vehicles is not regulated making it difficult to get into and out of campsites. Wi-Fi is another story. It is absolutely the worst we have experienced in the last 9 years. Staff claims that it is high usage by other campers, but late at night and very early in the morning there was no internet access at all. We left 4 days earlier than we had planned, needless to say we would not come back under any circumstances. We camped at Cornwall / Charlottetown KOA in a Motorhome.
