We came for a week and stayed for a month! The Willows is a beautifully laid out big rig friendly park with trees strategically placed to give each site a sense of privacy even when the park is full. All facilities are clean, well kept and convienient including washrooms, laundry facilities and office “mini store”. The campground is very close to Longbow Lake and Lake of the Woods making it a great place for access to abundant water activities. The location of the campground lends itself to hiking, biking, walking and great interaction with folk from Winnipeg and other surrounding communities who visit for the weekend or the season. Water, electric (hydro as the Canadians call it) and sewer systems all performed as expected. WIFI is weak in the very back of the park. We would recommend a good filter on the water due to a relatively high iron content. For the most important aspect of the campground a word needs to be said for the owners and staff. They and their family are professionals in the art of hospitality. They truly care about your comfort, enjoyment and overall experience of your stay. Need a rental boat? The owner will get one for you. Need firewood? It will be delivered to your site in a flash! Have an emergency and the staff will do whatever it takes to help. (This actually happened during our stay) We found this campground to be the very best of most all aspects of the RV and campground experience. We have already made our plans to return next summer for another month of their hospitality and the enjoyment of the wonderful people we met during our stay. I have never rated a park a “10” but in our book, Willows is a 10! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped for 1 night. Site was level. Power was very good and stable. Water pressure was good. The men's bathroom was not the cleanest and definitely needs some major upkeep. The Wi-Fi would not work that afternoon or evening. It would just keep dropping out. Very frustrating! Early in the morning it worked good. I suspect that the service is too small for the people use. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great spot. We came for a day or two while we visited the beautiful Kenora area, but decided to stay for five days. Clean, quiet, pleasant and helpfull staff, acceptable Wi-Fi and steady hydro. Easy in and out for our motorhome and toad. We now plan to come back nest year. Most of the seasonals are empty in August so that is great for privacy too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This new campground continues to be a work in progress. It consists of about 1/2 wooded sites and about 1/2 in an open area. A Wi-Fi hot spot has been added near the office, and may be accessible from the lower sites. The staff is hard at work adding new sites and improving the facilities. Restrooms are adequate and the setting is rustic. We spent 4 nights here and during two days the electric power failed several times briefly, but this issue was apparently resolved. Sites seemed reasonably level. We would definitely stay here again. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
2010 is the first year that The Willows has been open, and although things are a little rough around the edges, the park is being developed very quickly. The RV and tent sites are mostly in the woods, with a few pull-throughs for overnighters. No Wi-Fi, pool or laundry yet, but the office is currently under construction, and facilities upgraded. I would definitely return! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
