I would have rated this facility higher except that whoever did the layout for sites along the dammed up lake did not know what they were doing. Sites are big but pads are 10 feet from the connections. The result is that every picnic table one the lee side is three feet from the neighbour's septic. If you plan to stay more than one night, plan to eat out. The owners need to fix this or they will continue to get slammed.
We have stayed here before on our way to NS. Lovely, clean and good pull-through. I would rate this establishment a 10 except for two things. First, the "Owner" (written on his shirt so he must need constant reminders) has no manners and is unfriendly. Other staff are competent but also unfriendly so at least he has trained them well. The second is that while the Wi-Fi connection is fair from where we were, the bandwidth is dial-up standard. Pathetic in today's age.
We have stayed here before on our way east and it continues to be our choice. We had a pull-through so did not need to detach the toad. Nice owners and mostly Canadian campers. Place is for sale so someone has a great opportunity here.
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.
As someone else has said, the folks here are great and very accommodating. While their website did say the business was for sale, it is not, and that is good for us all! Yes, the 30 amp power is a tad on the 25 amp side but if you are an RVer and do not use a protective power supply transformer then . . . what more can I say. We stayed here for three days on our way to Dryden and will stop by again on our way home. Place is spotless and level with easy access.
Some 300 feet from the office there are four easy-access pull-through sites with 50 amp and full service for big rigs pulling a toad. We did not visit any other sites and only stayed one night. If you disregard the sourpus attitude of the female owner this is a good over-nighter for big rigs. Garbage disposal is terrible and that area is a pig-pen.
Campground is mainly seasonal but they do have three very nice pull-through sites with full hook-up for big rigs. Reserve in advance! Clean grounds and family operated. Would return if we were in the area again.
If you are going to Manitoulin Island in a big rig then this is the really the only place to stay, so you need a toad to get around the Island. New owners purchased it in February 2011 and they have done a fantastic job of bringing a run-down spot back to life. Young couple helped by family and lots of drive. We were in A9 up on the hill. Quiet and private. One of the best we have had for years. We stayed three days. Wi-Fi at the office, not on-site. Dump station easily accessible.
Very cramped part with nonexistent Wi-Fi - at least where we were. Very limited big rig sites. In fact we got the only pull-through. Very pleasant folks and well maintained but campground is for sale. If there is an alternative in the North Bay area we would not stay her again. Too many permanents and mostly not used.
Back again - last here in June 2010 and improvements continue to be made. The site is immaculate and extremely well maintained. Such a change from when we were first here years ago. Kudos to the new owners - much hard work and it shows.
This is a hidden gem well off of the beaten track so there are few if any overnight transient campers. Site are large and shaded - check out their website and click on the various site to see for yourself (photos taken in the spring so leaves are not out) The beach is about a quarter of a mile long and sandy shallow water goes out for hundreds of yards. An absolutely great place for children. Friendly bilingual staff. We are returning in September and have already booked space for next June. This is about the best place that we have seen from Yellowknife to Cape Breton.
We have stayed here in the past in a Motorhome which is why we returned this year. The Reservation desk was under-staffed and there was a line-up . . . we had made reservations though their new central service but it was recorded a day after we arrived! I gather that there have been many complaints. The clerk was very helpful, thank goodness, because I was tired. Sites are belly-to-butt and not level. This is a very noisy campsite - loud radios until curfew and way too many yapping bloody small animals mascarading as dogs. WAY over-priced by about 50% higher than another spot less than two miles away. We will not be back.
This is a great campsite for families with tents and very small campers, but it in NOT a place for either big rigs or 5th wheels. Reservations are made through a central NY service which is outstanding and a very real model. But these folks have never been on site and so do not realize that: 1. Road is VERY narrow with little room to pass anything. 2. There is absolutely no place to turn around 3. It is basically impossible to get anything larger than 20 feet into any site. So large 5th wheels and Class C and A units need to give this great spot a very wide berth indeed.
We first stayed here four years ago when the then new owners were in the process of making this wonderful campsite into less of a party palace and more into a restful and respectable operation. At the time, we realized that would be a challenge. We returned in a Motorhome for three days on our way to Cambridge and for another two days on our way back to the Ottawa area in June 2010. Our pull-through site was some 45 feet wide and 100 feet long, shaded and surrounded by a mature Red Pine forest. It was quiet, private and one of the nicest sites we have been in - and that includes many on our 2009 trip to Yellowstone. Friendly and helpful owners and no three-ring circus for those who need that kind of distraction. The lack of on-site septic was not an issue with us. This is a hidden gem, only 10 miles from the Algonquin Park western gate and with Huntsville shopping a half hour away. Will we return? You bet!
This is a very old campsite with many permanent and older residents/units. There is little if any apparent control over clutter - many old units have junk under/around. Nevertheless, it is quiet (seniors sleep!) and the sites are large. If you are looking for a cheap place to hang your hat while you visit Disney then consider this place - less then 30 minutes away and no Orlando traffic. Do not expect good Wi-Fi service if you cannot see the laundry area - like many RV sites the owners advertise Wi-Fi on site but that is nonsense. A $75 router is not Wi-Fi on-site! Our cable TV did not work and the owners could have cared less. We don't watch much so that was not a problem but if you do, then take care because you too might get stung. Would we return? No - I think we would try to find an other place that is equally inexpensive - this cannot be the only one.
