WI -fi could not be accessed. Spaces wellmarked. Streets a little narrow. Typical KOA. - Jimstone

All KOA park managers should have to visit this park to see how park bathrooms should look - be maintained. The manager/franchise owner was constantly on the go throughout the park on a golf cart checking on details, work being done, cleanliness etc.
Have to go to the office to use Wi-Fi here. Really need to provide a shuttle service to metro or even over to Montreal city. Site spacing was about right. Seemed to be a decent mix between seasonals and transients. - Mikael

Rather large campground with EZ on/off from Rt 15/US87. They were very nice in getting us 50 amps and extending our stay for one night. Space is level gravel with picnic table and fire pit. We appreciated it was a multilingual KOA as we don't speak French. WES all fine. There are a lot of trees so be sure you can use your satellite TV in your site. Wifi was ok but not great. If your device is off for even a few minutes the connection is lost and sometimes you reconnect, sometimes not. It's a peaceful setting but not far from the city. - Team Asphalt

This is a very large RV park catering mainly to seasonal trailers with hedge lined roadways and sites. The sites for short term, nightly RV's number 4 small back-in and one large back-in with full hookups. Really not meant for motor homes, except for the large back-in site. They did say that they had another area for larger RV's up the hill via a different entrance. As it was full we did not see what it was like. For our short 3 nite stay is was OK as we spent most of our time sightseeing in Montreal. However, thinking back that I had made this reservation 3 months earlier, I think we should have been able to have a pull-thru site in the other area. If you make a reservation here be careful to verify what kind of site you will get. Maybe because it was a PA reservation, that is all you get, but verify. - Michael Kibler

While everything was marked excellent, I give it an 8 because there is no privacy between spots. We had a good spot because the people next to us were parked further back. The staff is so nice, they were waiting for us to arrive one night, even calling at 9:30 to ask when we were coming. It was a miscommunication as we were arriving the next day. Washer is free, dryer is a quarter. They also provide clotheslines for those who prefer. Spots are level. We got satellite with no problem. The campground is about 30 minutes to old Montreal. We were very happy and would come back. - dorcol

This park is very convenient to Montreal City and attractions. The sites are comfortable: not too small, not very large. There is an office, common use building, playground, beautiful swimming pool and area, restaurant. Safe, clean, cozy spot. Passport America discount applies. Owners take cash only as payment and totally ignore exchange rate. Not very friendly, but well run. Some seasonal residents and travelers. - MargaretL

Check out the elaborate patios, glassed-in porches, etc., erected by seasonals/lot owners. Sites for overnighters are landscaped, have patios with table and chairs, a grill, and rocking-chair swings. The transient parking spaces, however, are rather narrow, making awnings unusable and under cabin bins difficult to open. Still, the best-provisioned sites ever seen. Plenty of stuff for kids. A real bargain in $US. - Mtmoi

An adequate quiet country campground with mostly seasonal sites. A lot of trees in the seasonal area but minimal shade in the transient area.
Big rigs do NOT come in (or leave) thru St Phillipe - use 104 instead. Note big rigs returning to the US should NOT cross via I-89 due to the very tight S-curve at the entrance to the US customs booths.
Gravel access roads are mostly either single lane or slightly wider. Marginal for a big rig passing a car, mostly impossible for two big rigs passing. Minimal locations for hooking up the toad on departure. Transient sites are gravel with grass between the sites. Most had charcoal bbq, paver patio, table and swing. Minimal separation between transient sites - hard to avoid listening to neighbors even with windows closed.
Power was very marginal - 110v under no load sagging to 106v with light to moderate load. Did not use other utilities. Wifi had good signal strength, but was all over the place on speed from adequate to multi-minute page loads even during the middle of the day. TMobile (Tellus) LTE was 1 bar with sluggish speed, Verizon (Bell) LTE 1 bar, but didn't check speed.
Ok road bike riding within campground, but no adjacent road bike trails. Single steam recycling on site.
While it is a good location near the border crossing, we probably won't return. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

Less than a 1/2 hour from Old Montreal, this is a very well-kept park where many sites occupied by long-term residents have been seriously upgraded with pavers, sheds, etc. -- all done very tastefully. The wide, smooth gravel driveways give easy access to grass sites with smooth, level, gravel parking pads plenty large for our 37' MH & toad. A bonus was classy appointments including a paver patio, a barbeque, patio-style table & chairs, and a swinging chaise. Water, sewer, and electricity hookups were convenient, though we used only 30 amp. Free WiFi was reliable and fast (maybe because the park was not very full at this time of year). We didn't use the bathrooms or laundry. Service was courteous and pleasant, and included a golf-cart escort by a fellow who even helped guide us into our back-in site. Price shown is net of a 40% off-peak discount. We thought it was a very good value for the amenities offered. - DaveInOhio

Although the campsite boasts 500+ sites, the vast majority are seasonal. Sites are small, close together and not shaded where we stayed. There is ample security and lots of events planned on weekends. You have to know French to function here. Potable water quality left a fil on dishes, while the kids complained the pool did not seem to be chlorinated, might be salt water. Water slides which are included in a long stay are in a man made lake. Close (3 km) to amenities and the Montgolfier Balloon festival that happens every August. Beware of kids and golf carts, there is no speed limit for them and the locals love to drive their golf carts all hours of the day. - Andrew Hampson

Big campground with new owners. Some sites are very nice. But you can tell that for some year there was a lack in maintenance. Less than 15 minutes from a lot of stores. But still a quiet place. - libertad69

A large open area with level back-in electric sites close to the water (couple of hundred feet) with a nice view through sparse trees and a lot of unserviced sites in the rest of the area. There was also a few electric pull-through sites away from the water. It is first come first serve (no reservations accepted) and most electric sites filled up by mid afternoon though there was always plenty of unserviced sites (we were there only during the middle of the week). A dump station was available but the only place to fill up with water was at the dump station. Questionable sanitary conditions but we doused the faucet (3' off the concrete pad) with bleach and hooked our hose up to it making sure nothing touched the ground. I would recommend filling up with water before you get there. The location was extremely convenient to visit Montreal. There is a passenger ferry right next door that will take you to Old Port and a good asphalt bike trail runs right past the campground that you can use to ride to Old Port without being on any roads. Even though amenities were sparse the price you pay for being close to downtown is a great value. There was good strong free WiFi available from our site and the Verizon signal was very good. - Ramblin On

As I commented in my 2015 review of this campground, this is a nothing fancy RV park, with unserviced and 30 amp electric sites. There is a fresh water spigot at the dump station. As I observed idiots cleaning their black hose from the potable water spigot, you may want to bring a container of Javex to clean the faucet. Unfortunately reservations are not accepted. The big change this year is that there is free WiFi in the campground. As we were in the middle of the campground I cannot comment on how the connection is at the far end of the campground.
The best part of this campground is its easy access to Montreal via the subway (Longueuil-Université de Sherbrooke metro station) and the view of the city across the water are unbeatable. - driftdiver1

This is truly a great place to stay while visiting Montreal. The Metro subway station is an easy walk, as is the water taxi, so you don't have to drive (and park) to get to the city center. All the sites on the water front have 30 amp electric service, and the views are spectacular. But... this is certainly a bare-bones park.
We were at the far end of the park so it was quiet, but the electric service was pretty weak, especially when it got warm and others started running their air conditioners. The staff assured us that the water spigots on the dump station island were fresh water, so we doused everything with a bleach solution before filling our tank. The park is very popular, so be sure to arrive on a weekday. We'd certainly stay here again. - Mingo Papa

Our site was a gravel fairly level pull-through that was a tight fit due to a tree on the driver's side and the cement patio and table on the other. Electric post showed a hot reverse. I refused to use it and even though they said it was okay they finally relented and let me use the power post at the adjacent non occupied site. No cable TV, but 16 channels off the antenna with half in English. Wi-Fi cost an extra $6 per day. It had a strong signal and good bandwidth. Pet restrictions with animals 15 lb. or less allowed. Waterfront sites are all seasonal. There is a beach on the lake. Still I would probably look somewhere else next time due to electric concerns and the cost. - Onemoretrail
