A gem of a private park on White Lake in the Pakenham hills. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the park was quiet and family-friendly. There's an excellent salt water swimming pool for cooling off and during our stay there was a fair with lots of attractions and plenty of free food. We recommend this park. We'll be back.
A beautiful park on Lake Ontario. There are a wide variety of sites, from heavily wooded to wide open. If you're camping in a trailer or motorhome the CGs of choice are The Pines and High Bluffs. There are many activities within the park, and a lighthouse and interpretive center as well. We usually avoid the beaches (there are three) because they collect algae and sometimes there's a strong smell. Swimming can be had off the rocky shores on the south side of the park. We've stayed here many times and will keep coming back.
Incredibly beautiful and well-maintained park: somebody was sweeping the road when we arrived! Great playground for the kids, steps to the ocean with two options: a rocky cove and a wide sandy beach. Friendly and professional staff. Free WiFi and free firewood. Beautiful setting. Without a doubt the nicest campground we have ever stayed at.
Park is run down and dumpy. Has narrow sites, plenty of seasonals (or permanents) in various states of (dis)repair. "Comfort station" next to our trailer had sinks but no toilets: there were portable toilets outside instead. The main building had bathrooms. Our only interaction with the staff was at check-in and that was pleasant. Sites were level dirt and gravel, with grass in some areas. Our site (#8) had 119VAC at the post. The most redeeming quality of this park was its very close proximity to the Tsawwassen Ferry terminal. Access to the city of Vancouver was also good.
The park is about 20 minutes south of Calgary but quite off the beaten path and in a very quiet setting. There are plenty of sites, including very large and wooded seasonals. River rock is the predominant ground cover, though there is some grass and some underbrush and plenty of mature trees. The park runs along the Highwood River just south of where it joins the Bow River. The river is fairly narrow but moves fast; there is a "beach" of smooth river rock on the campground side and steep cliff on the other. Showers are free and laundry is a reasonable $1.50 each for washers and dryers. For some reason there is a $10.00 dumping fee that appears to apply even to paying clients: no sweat for us because we had a full service site. I'm guessing they've had problems with guest behaviour in the past because there are stern warnings about excess noise and security is present overnight on weekends and to check campers into the park after hours. There doesn't appear to be any problems now: the park goes dead quiet at night and when we've awakened, the only sounds have been wind and birdsong. The entire park is 20A service, so no A/C. Site electrical supply: 114VAC.
A nice enough park, a little on the pricey side, very conveniently located in the town of Drumheller itself. On the downside, everything costs: $1.00 for 5 minutes in the shower, $3.00 for 15 minutes of Internet (their computers, no Wi-Fi), $3.00 (!) each for washers and dryers. The campers are packed into a hodgepodge of sites and some sites have very little outside space. Everything is a little careworn. On the upside, it's very family-friendly. Lots of kids and a playground inside the park. Lots of bunnies live here in a number of enclosures but there are always escapees hopping around. The staff is very friendly, the whole place is kept clean, and the washroom (while old) was nice.
We stayed here on site 155 as part of a club gathering which occupied a dozen or so spots in the unnamed loop formed by sites 138 to 170. The park is beautiful and well maintained, and the staff are friendly, and it's a great place for kids to play.
We often choose Cardinal KOA as a group camping season opener or closer. For the most part, the staff are friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. The sites are well treed and there are many pull-throughs. The jumping pillow and the rental karts are very popular with the kids. The place is clean and well-run. We will continue to patronize this park.
