Well maintained campground with lots of amenities and things for kids to do. Typical KOA, sites are small but clean. We stayed here to visit 1000 Islands area and loved how close the campground was to the boat cruise, fishing, restaurants in Gananoque, and boat rentals. Peck's Marina is across the road - book early if you want a boat...

Very nice park, large spaces and easy pull through's. They had a very nice dog yard that included a bowl of water and some balls to play with. We didn't have need to use the children's play yard but it looked very nice. Restrooms and showers were clean. Only negative and reason for 4 stars is the poor wifi.

To be honest, this place has very little to offer. Typical "parking lot" style campground in a gravel patch in the forest. The sites have little to no privacy and look nothing like the promo pictures on the KOA app. We were particularly disappointed since we booked this place following all sorts of positive reviews. Their advertising in the Ontario...

We stayed 5 nights in a studio cabin tucked in the back so lots of privacy. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. We did not participate in any activities but the pools were lovely and the location is perfect for exploring both Kingston and Brockville. We all loved the jumping pillow! My son has severe food allergies so...

Awesome day cruising on the St.Lawrence and finally circling the famous Bolt Castle. Much better then Kingston cruises and a lot more to see. I you have a choice take this one as it has something to see all the time and is only an hour in duration.

I rarely stay in the same place more than once in favour of variety, but this KOA is my absolute favourite go-to place to simply unwind and relax. When our kids were younger, we would come here with tents and eventually a tent/trailer. But now as it's "not cool" for older teens to vacation with their parental units, my wife...

My youngest and I took to the road in search of beaches before she had to hit the books! This has become a tradition of sorts as it ends the summer season nicely and also gives her interesting pieces to write about when asked that dreaded question..."what was the best part about your summer vacation?" We stayed in at The...

Wasn't very impressed. The sites are brutal, pool is small and gross, and you have to pay extra for most of the activities. The bouncing pillow and playground were exceptional. Sites were ridiculously small, and there was a domestic across the street from me at a seasonal trailer.

Our family spent 4 nights there in August. The park is clean and we'll maintained. The lots are packed in very closely together but that's par for the course for most private parks. For seclusion you have to give up some amenities and go to a Provincial park. Lots of activities for the kids. They have two pools (although they...
