This is a very nice place. Unique, immaculately trimmed, tall bushes between each site make it very private and green. Nice paved pads and brick along the side with nice picnic tables. Staff is very nice. The location is within walking distance to the ski train. There is not a lot to do in terms of activities at the park, but we were using it as a base to see the city and travel to Victoria Island by ferry. We highly recommend this park. Oh ya, did I mention that it is right next to a train track that operates many times during the day and night? The sound of the approaching train sounds like its going to come right through your RV! The ground slightly shakes its so close. But don't let this stop you from staying at this park. We would definitely stay here again. Just don't get a site along side the track!
Don't even bother. We drove to the park, walked through the gate to check out the approach to our site, and decided not to stay there. The place is an absolute run down, scary, home for long-term residents. This is no place for vacationers. I wouldn't risk my safety staying there even on night alone, let alone risk my family's safety. Don't stay here.
Easy access off hwy. Great entrance. Friendly park staff. Two comments that rate it an "8". Sites are too overgrown for a 45'. It would be great for big rigs if they would trim trees both on the side and overhead in the sites. Also the AC voltage was to low so we did hook up. If you do stay here, walk down to the river. The view is spectacular at sunset!
Very good staff: they have the process down pat. This is a busy KOA with lots of traffic each day, but it seems to run smoothly. Great pool (even though it is by the highway, that made it entertaining). They accommodated our one day early arrival. Friendly atmosphere. Would come here again.
Nice new owners and a friendly office. Note to big rigs: the access to the wide open sites is via a tight windy road through the woods. I would not classify this campground as big rig friendly, although it is 45' big rig accessible.
This is a copy of the feedback I gave directly to KOA corporate. The owner of Montreal South KOA was rude, obnoxious and offensive. He criticized the way I leveled my motorhome. He took offense when I suggested his site wasn't level, then told a "story" of how he kicked previous tenants out of his park. In the process he used inappropriate language in the presence of my family, including my wife and two young boys. About 20 minutes later, I asked him about the low voltage I was noticing on my meter. He then came unglued and called the meter a "$1.50 piece of crap". He then told me I had 5 minutes to leave his park before his office closed, because he could foresee me being nothing but trouble. I wasn't about to move my family at night without reservations, so I went inside my RV and avoided him at all cost. This owner has rejected all standard KOA amenities as worthless. He said he didn't want to see "kids with stupid paint on their faces eating ice cream". He also said he doesn't have "fat ladies in the pool at 10:00 in the morning." I assume he was talking about water aerobics. I could go on, but in short, this park and this owner are not representative of what we have come to know and love about KOA. I would doubt that I am the first or the last to complain. Good luck.
We are a 45' motorhome towing and were pleasantly surprised that this campground was easy to maneuver. Tall trees, but trimmed high. Ample room on turns. Yes, there was a train, but aren't all RV campgrounds near train tracks? : -) Friendly staff and kid friendly with pool and bike rental. Lots to do nearby (Bonneville Dam, Multnomah Falls, etc), so even if you're passing through I'd suggest spending two nights here.
A bit tight for a 45' motorhome, but we had no problem getting into our long site. Typical KOA amenities. Exceptional owners -- family friendly. Great food in the Outback Cafe. Be sure to visit Shoshone Falls and Perrine Bridge.
Water aerobics was fun and the instructor was very friendly. I wish I could say the same thing about the "Customer Service" lady who escorted us to our site. When I stopped at a turn to let my wife out to watch my back-end, the "lady" go very agitated. She sounded irritated that I didn't blindly trust that I would not cause damage with my wide swing out (I have a 45 foot rig). She blurted out that she escorts Prevosts with long trailers every day, which I took to personally to imply that my rig was not up to her high standard. Well, after that, she appeared so mad at me that she could barely utter her required speech once we got to the site. I assured her that this wasn't my first RV experience and released her of her responsibility. She is probably worn out by new tourists every day and should probably be re-assigned to a non-customer service position.
