What a beautiful and well-kept campground! There is a lot of grass, which is kept well mowed and there are shaded sites as well. There is a lake with fishing permitted, and a small beach with a roped-off swimming area for children. If you are looking for a nice campground and a quiet place to relax, this would be a good choice. The owners are as pleasant and helpful as one could want. One caution. Be sure that you follow the directions to the campground, as given in the camping directory, as there are several turns.

This campground is 8 miles south of the Ottawa city limits on Rt.31. The drive into downtown Ottawa is not bad, but parking in the city runs about $10.00 per day. There is also a public bus available. This is an older campground in need of some sprucing up. That said, the campground has level pullthrus with shade, picnic tables and fire rings. There is a large, heated, indoor swimming pool which is very nice. Staff members are friendly and helpful.

This campground was a pleasant surprise. It was getting late, and suddenly we came upon this campground. (It was not listed in our Trailer Life directory.) Seasonal campers are the bulk of the campground's users, but there is an area with long gravel pull-throughs for those staying on a few days. It might be advisable to call ahead, especially in the high season. (514) 990-6647. English is spoken. There is a sparkling swimming pool, tennis court, volleyball, etc. plus fishing in the Ottawa River. It is in the country, close to the Quebec/Ontario line. From Montreal: Take Highway 40 West. Take Exit 9 at Rigaud, turn left and drive 5 kilometers. From Ottawa: Take Highway 40 East and take the first exit in Quebec. Go to Pointe-Fortune and take 342 East, in the direction of Rigaud. Drive 4 kilometers. (These directions have been copied from the campground's brochure.) There is an excellent Visitor's Center close-by on the Quebec/Ontario border. The folks there are extremely helpful, and English is spoken.

This is a beautiful park, with all the amenities one could want. (Admittedly, we did not try to use the WiFi.) There is even a small restaurant next to the office. The folks in the office speak English, and were most helpful to us. The sites are large, long, grassy pullthrus. Yes, there is noise from the adjacent highway, but it is less at night, and the closer one's site is to the main facility the better, as far as noise is concerned. I don't think the highway noise should make this nice park to be rated as a "3", as below. The campground is 10 minutes by car from the ferry to Old Quebec. The view from the ferry is awesome. We took this several different days, as there is much to see and do in the Old City. Good walking shoes are essential. Ferry "passes" are available in the office, and will give you a discount on the ferry ride(s). There is a $99.00/week special on camping for Passport America members, but this is only after Labor Day, as well as in the early part of the season.

This small campground is right on the New River, with many sites backing right up to the river bank. There is a campground boat ramp, and a public ramp nearby as well. The convenience store is well stocked and the folks who run the store and campground are very pleasant. There is also a gas station at the store. The only drawback to the campground is the noise level from the I-81 bridge, which is right over the campground.

We came to this campground expecting to stay overnight, and we stayed for five nights. This is a beautiful park, with large sites, plenty of green grass and a view of the mountains. There are picnic tables and fire rings at each site, a paved walking trail, and pond with pedal boats for rent. There is a swimming pool although I did not see it. The campground makes a good base camp for excursions to attractions in the area.

This new park is owner-operated, and his hard work shows. The large sites are level, with a gravel base and grass in between sites. There is a nice store and a clean laundry, and the owner can always be reached by his cell phone, in case of a problem. The owner and his daughter are most helpful. The park is adjacent to a green space, with a stream for fishing and a walkway to the town. This is a very pleasant campground for a stay of several days.

This is a pretty, well-kept campground, with a view of the lake. The sites are level and grassy, and the grass is kept mowed. The buildings look freshly painted, and are neat and clean. Personnel are friendly and helpful. There is a large barn on site which contains a full kitchen and eating area, a game room and two private rooms, each containing a Jacuzzi tub. The tubs are immaculate. Folks are asked to clean the tub after use, and the cleaning product and paper towels are provided. The campground is very close to the ferry terminal for ferries to Newfoundland. RVs may be stored here, if campers don't want to take them to Newfoundland. The campground is also a good base camp for a day trip to the Fortress of Louisbourg and other area attractions.

This is the closest campground to the Nova Scotia Welcome Center. Park staff is friendly and helpful. This would not be a destination campground, but it is a good place to spend a night after reaching Nova Scotia, and there are plenty of easy-in, easy-out pull-through sites.

There are many seasonal sites here, but there are sites for short stays in the center of the campground. We had a large, level, grassy pull-through, with trees along one side of the site. We did not use the swimming pool, but those who did, mostly children, seemed to be having a great time. There is a path that leads from the campground to the beach. We used this park as a base camp for sight-seeing in the beautiful historic town of St. Andrews and for a long day trip to the Fundy Islands. There is a free car ferry to Deer Island, and another car ferry, for a fee, from Deer Island to Campobello Island. NOTE: If you want to go to Campobello, you must take your vehicle to Deer Island, as the ferry terminal for the Campobello ferry is on the far side of Deer Island, much too far to walk. It is preferable to take your vehicle to Campobello Island also, as the Roosevelt International Peace Park,(the summer residence of FDR) is a 2+ mile walk along a busy road. There are other areas to explore as well; a provincial park, trails, lighthouses, etc. We had no trouble getting a site at this campground, as we were traveling late in the summer.

This campground is visually stunning. The owners, live on-site. They are the friendliest and most helpful hosts that you will ever meet. They have built this campground themselves; thoughtful planning and hard work have been put into it and it shows. Sites are quite large, whether a cabin site or a RV or tent site, and maximum use of trees and shrubs maintains privacy for each site. All have fire rings and picnic tables. The washrooms are spotless. There is a nice swimming pool, and a lodge where campers may retreat to on rainy days or otherwise. It contains a seating area with a wood-burning fireplace, a television, a kitchen facility, and books, puzzles and games to keep everyone busy. The campground is a good base camp for exploring Prince Edward Island National Park, with its high sand dunes and long beaches for walking and bird-watching, the Anne of Green Gables House and other attractions. We traveled on the shoulder season and had no difficulty obtaining a site, but I would think that reservations during the high summer season would be practically mandatory. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

We cannot comment very much on this campground, as we arrived there at 5 PM in torrential rain and we were glad to be there. The woman at the registration desk was pleasant and helpful. There are several long, level, grassy pull-throughs available for overnight, and that was all we needed.

This park is just 2 miles down the road from the Wood Islands ferry terminal, Park staff were pleasant and helpful when we arrived in the evening, with a bum tire. The campground faces the Northumberland Strait, and there are long pull-through sites facing the water. Other sites are quite large, some have a water view as well, and all have some trees. A stairway leads down to the red sand beach, which lends itself to walking and wildlife viewing. We saw seals and many shore birds, as well as a few brave souls enjoying the surf. This is a very pretty campground, and provided us with a pleasant and serene camping experience. We were traveling during the shoulder season, and had no trouble getting a site, even at 7:30 PM, but I think reservations would be wise during the peak summer season, especially on the weekends.

We used this park as a base camp for exploring Historic Port Royal,Fort Anne and the historic gardens, and Nova Scotia Power's Tidal Generating Station, which uses the high tide of the Bay of Fundy to generate electricity. The park is located on the Annapolis River, and the nicest sites are along or backing onto the river. We saw seals and loons on the river in the evenings. Pull-through sites are long and level. The washroom was not cleaned while we were there, which causes us to wonder about the 9* rating. The park offers most services,but is in need of some TLC and general "sprucing up. "

The owners of this campground live on-site, and they are very welcoming at the reception desk, and always agreeable and helpful. The campground is very pretty; we had a large, level pull-through site among tall pine trees, and some sites are on the river. Cable television is provided at no extra cost, and there is a nice swimming pool. We also enjoyed the tag sale that was taking place in the campground on one day during our visit. We did not have reservations, as we were traveling during the shoulder season, but I think reservations would be necessary during the high summer season, at least on the weekends. The location provides a good base camp for visiting pretty nearby towns like Mahone Bay, and historic Lunenberg, which is best explored by walking and where the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is a "must see".

Our reception at check-in was lukewarm, to say the least. This campground has many nice sites nestled among trees, but it seems that most are probably seasonal sites. We were there for a short stay, and our site was in full sun and closest to the main road, a grassy site in need of attention. There is a nice swimming pool. We used the park as a base camp for visiting Halifax and Peggy's Cove, and then we moved on.

This is a beautiful campground in Kejimkujik National Park in the center of the Province. There is an interesting and informing interpretative center near the entrance to the park. The campground is situated on Lake Kejimkujik, which offers sandy beaches and "warm" water for swimming, as well as fishing and canoe/kayaking opportunities. These are available for rental within the park. The sites are heavily wooded, very large, and private. There are many hiking/walking opportunites with trailheads within the campground and at other places within the park. NOTE: We camped here during the shoulder season, and had no trouble getting a site; it would probably be full during the high season in July-August. Also, be aware that there are no hook-ups, but restrooms, showers, dump station and a public telephone are availble. We enjoyed a very peaceful experience at this park.

This is beautiful campground in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The sites are very large, level, and include both back-ins and pull-throughs in sun or shade (Evergreen and birch trees abound). This makes a good base camp for exploration of the national park, the Cabot Trail & surrounding small communities. The national park has many opportunities for hiking/walking, nature programs, and general sight-seeing. There are many whale-watching cruises available in the area, and the sand beaches on the Cabot Trail had many folks enjoying the surf, even in September. There is a walking trail from Broad Cove Campground to an ocean beach. We were traveling on the shoulder season, and had no problem in obtaining a beautiful site for 6 days over the Labor Day holiday. NOTE: This park does not take reservations, and I think that it would probably be full in the July-August high season. We thoroughly camping at this campground.

This campground has a great location right on the Bay of Fundy. There are many long, level, grassy pull-through sites. At check-in, we were asked where the largest window in the RV was located, and we were put in a site where we would have the best possible view of the bay from that window. We thought that was a vey nice added touch. It is just a short stroll to the rocky beach, and several brave souls were enjoying the water. The campground is a good base camp for exploring the fairly new Fundy Parkway Trail, which has a good interpretative center with knowledgeable staff, many hiking/walking trails, picnic groves, and many scenic viewpoints. The pretty town of St. Martins is worth a look as well.

We had a wonderful camping experience in this beautiful National Park campground, Fundy/Chignecto North. We were traveling late in August, and had no difficulty in obtaining a site. Our pull-though site was very large, and privacy was offered by the trees that provided screening between sites. There was an area nearby that had the bathrooms, a laundry building, a kitchen building with cooking facilities and a wood-burning fireplace, and a playground. There is so much to see and do in Fundy National Park; nature programs, many walking/hiking trails, a golf course, and a beach where the phenomenon of the tides of Fundy is plainly seen. Although the campground itself does not have a swimming pool, there is a pool in the National Park, which is available for a small fee. This is a truly great place to camp.

There are many seasonal campers here, but there is also a nice, grassy section of long, level pull-throughs for overnighters, as well as a separate section for tenters.

This park is very well kept. We arrived rather late, after 7:00 P.M., due to an unforeseen mechanical problem that held us up. The folks at the check-in counter were among the most pleasant and helpful we've ever met up with. The park was full, but we were offered an overflow site. This had 30 amp service, and was adjacent to the bathrooms. We were told that we could dump and could fill our tanks with water, if needed. The bathrooms and showers were immaculately clean, as is the entire park. The only drawback that I could see is that there isn't a pool. Reservations are recommended.

This is a very attractive and well-kept campground, with sites among tall pines and hardwood trees. Our site was a large, level pull-through. Since we were traveling at the end of the season, we had no trouble getting this nice site at 5:00 P.M. The woman at the check-in desk was friendly, and thanked us for choosing their campground. We were escorted to our site by a man in a golf cart. This service is something that campers don't see very often anymore. This is a Good Sam park.

This small campground is a hidden "gem" at the end of a four-mile country road. It is on the Salmon River, and there are mountain views all around. The sites are level, grass is mowed, and there are beautiful flower beds. There is a spring-fed pool, with a constant temperature of 94 degrees, and a hot tub as well. Staff is friendly and helpful. Wildlife is abundant. We were greeted by four big-horned sheep on our way in, and during our stay saw more of these, as well as deer and bald eagles. We had a very pleasant stay.

This is a lovely, well-maintained campground. The sites are level gravel and ample in size. The grass was well cut. There is a storm shelter on the premises. The personnel are very friendly. The only drawback is the noise of the train, but this is offset by the campground's proximity to stores within walking distance. A short distance away, there is a store which sells Kansas wines, which may be sampled, and other food and gift items. We wanted to attend church on Sunday morning, and there is a beautiful historic Catholic church nearby. Would definitely stop again.

This place is awful. It is run-down, dirty, and has little to offer. There are many broken down, unkept permanent rigs, and that area had trash all over the place. The so-called swimming lake is dirty and scummy. No one in his right mind would go in it. The buildings are delapidated. I wouldn't even think about using a bathroom here. Fortunately, all we wanted was an overnight site; I can't imagine any camper wanting to stay here. We paid $28 to stay here, and what we wanted most of all was just to leave, as soon as possible. Would NEVER stay here again.

This KOA was the final straw, and is responsible for our decision not to use KOA campgrounds anywhere at any time. We pulled in after dark on a cold night in March. Our reception was also cold. Rules were posted everywhere. I have no problem with rules for campers, but I think there should be some internal "rules" that govern the behavior of campground personnel. In northern Ohio in March, we did not expect to have water, even though we were paying for electric and "water." Not a problem, as we had plenty in our tank. We did expect to have electricity sufficient for our needs. I don't know how many amps we had, possibly only 20, as use of my hair dryer in the morning resulted in blown fuses. I said I would go to the bath house to dry my hair. However, there were no electrical outlets in the bath house, or so it seemed. When I started out the door, I noticed a hanging plant in the corner, but very high up towards the ceiling, not a normal way to hang a plant. I knew what I would find when I went back to look. Yes, the plant was hanging right over an electrical outlet. This was the shabbiest thing I have ever seen in a campground. What a way to treat campers, just to save a few cents. No one was in the office when we left, but I did leave a note and told them exactly what I thought about the situation. This was several years ago, but I have not forgotten the place, nor have we used KOAs again.

This is a nice family campground. We camped here in a fifth-wheel for 8 days in 2004 and again in 2005, with grandchildren both times. There is enough here to keep the kids content and busy. There are also special events and activities for both young and old. Park management is very helpful, and facilities are in good condition. The park was not full when we camped in June, but it might be pretty crowded when there are special events going on in Gettysburg. We hope to return again next June.
