Klahanie Kamping  (Aylesford, Nova Scotia)
"Nope"......   We were also there this past summer. We have a big camper so we need 30 amp service, which they do have. First there were problems with the water, which was then followed by problems with the power. We went to the office and the staff was rude and not willing to offer a refund. It was hot and we didn't have air conditioning which was fun with 3 small kids. The pool is always full of bigger kids splashing and jumping off the side which wasn't great for our small kids. The playground is nice, and that's the only thing we liked about this campground. We ended up leaving early because of the power and water problems and the fact they were not willing to offer a discount or refund because of it. We won't be back.

Klahanie Kamping  (Aylesford, Nova Scotia)
"Don't waste your time or money"......   Not sure what all the fuss is about with this campground. We went this past summer expecting an amazing weekend. First of all it's not cheap. Lots are expensive and the tiny bundles of wood are very expensive. The staff people were rude and the lady in charge was very moody and cranky. The "activities" they talk about which are supposed to be amazing are not, at all. This campground needs a lot of upgrades. Everyone kept losing power and water ALL WEEKEND. All this campground has going for it is that it is by the zoo, that's it. They need to seriously work on their customer service and do tons of upgrades or they are going to have an empty campground.

Tobermory Village Campground  (Tobermory, Ontario)
"tina_price01@hotmail.com"......   I love this campsite! Staff are super nice and take pride in their campsite, and it shows. Its nice and quiet (a huge bonus) lots of things to do on campsite, and off.. the grotto is definitely something to check out, the water is amazing, close to carribean water color. About 10 mins down the road theres a chip wagon, which serves the BEST gravy n fries EVER!! A local store 5 minutes away from campsite and they carry absolutely everything, and are so friendly. I love the hammocks by the water, laying in them at night watching the stars is just breathtaking. My husband and I found this place 3 yrs ago, and have been back every yr since. Theres also a beach a ways down the road that has crystal clear water and pure sand, no rocks.
"to each their own i guess .. I personally love tobermory. Been back 3 times so far and will continue!"
Jay Lake Campground and RV Park  (Minden, Ontario)
"Just Plain Nasty Owners"......   These are two people who took great pleasure in the power they felt as owners. I hope the park doesn't sell and the bank takes it. People lost half of the value of there trailers when they were not allowed to sell on site. That was the price to get away from them.
Attons Lake Regional Park  (Cut Knife, Saskatchewan)
"Attons"......   Favourite place to camp great beach clean water like that no boats on the weekends so great for small kids
Jay Lake Campground and RV Park  (Minden, Ontario)
"PRAYING FOR NEW OWNERS"......   I came across a listing for the park, and it is for sale. Thank God, we are praying for new owners, as the current owners are HORRIBLE! They make up rules on a weekly basis, they are planning on charging us $125 an hour if they have to cutting our grass if we do not make it up one weekend. This was part of the fees the previous years, but since these owners have come on board, things have gone down hill. Praying for new owners who have the common sense to listen to us and don't jack the rates up any higher then the current owners have. I think raising the rates close to 30%, this once was a great park, and heres to hoping it will be once these owners are GONE!!!!
Lancaster Park Outdoor Resort  (Lancaster, Ontario)
"Our best family camping experience ever!"......   "Wonderful family vacation!"...... This campground is the complete family vacation! We stayed at Lancaster Park several times in the 2013 season and found it had something for every member of my family. The children were entertained on the clean well kept beach and also played safely in the children's park. The manager routinely drove by the park to ensure all the children were playing safely. During our first visit the campground had experienced several days of rain. We were relocated to a dryer campsite without hesitation by the management of the park. They did everything in their power to accommodate us even when Mother Nature gave it her worst! My wife and I enjoyed the full service restaurant on the days we chose not to cook in our trailer. Very nice to have that option!! The icing on the cake was when we discovered that the campground had tribute bands in Pioneer Hall. We saw an incredible band called Fleetwood Mix! We Also enjoyed reasonably priced drinks during the show! What a geat place! We will be visiting Lancaster Park several times in 2014 and I'm still trying to convince my wife that we should settle down and become seasonal campers at this resort!

"Jay Lake Campground and Trailer Park - Owners from Hell!"......   If you are thinking of pulling your trailer into the park, best you read these reviews (and other sites) and think again. I have never met business owners who are this rude, unfriendly and arrogant. Seasonal campers at this park walk on egg shells. A wrong look or a question to Shirley the owner will get you kicked out of the park with no recourse. Fees are up 30%, the park is run down, rules are recited to you each time you make a move but none have been posted or given to the campers. Words can't describe the rudeness of the owners whose standard line is "If you don't like it, pull your trailer out. Best advice if you are looking - do your homework starting with these reviews! Be warned!
Jay Lake Campground and RV Park  (Minden, Ontario)
"DON'T GO TO THIS PARK!!"......   We have been seasonal campers at Jay Lake for many years and until the park went under new ownership in 2013, we enjoyed our time there. Quiet campground in a beautiful setting. The new owners are terrible people with no people or business skills. I won't repeat all of the details as you can read in previous reviews from other seasonals, but if you are considering going to Jay Lake, reconsider.

"New owners are HORRIBLE! "......   The new owners have ruined this park in a matter of months. They have made you feel uncomfortable on your own site. They change the rules week to week. They have increased the seasonal fees by 30%, they have added a "rule" if you aren't up at your site for some time, and the owners have to cut your grass they will charge you $125 an hr!! they have increased the fees, but have taken away many of the items that were included by the previous owners, such as winter storage, this is now extra, they use to cut the grass of each site, but they have stopped this, and they have now charged us $300 deposit for a hydro meter and we now have to pay hydro! We are not allowed to sell our own trailers, all they say is "if you don't like it, then pull your trailer." The new owners are horrible, have no people skills and have ruined a wonderful park. We feel that we have been bullied into staying in the park, since we cant sell our trailer. Very disappointed in the park and the owners.

Fishermans Cove Tent and Trailer Park  (Kincardine, Ontario)
"BORING - DON'T BOTHER"......   This is for retired people or families will very young children. We left two days early because we were bored.
Bingemans Campground  (Kitchener, Ontario)
"Agree with the comment by Ron of Kitchener "......   This used to be very clean and well maintained. The showers are full of spiders and not clean and the washrooms are not clean. The lots above are too close together with no privacy. We used to love this place but after camping there this summer we will never go back, unless its for a day trip.
Jay Lake Campground and RV Park  (Minden, Ontario)
"Jays Lake - FIVE STARS!"......   The new owners of Jays Lake, as of May 2013 are very kind and down to earth. We want to stay here for many years to come into our retirement. Steve and Shirley go the extra distance for you in so many ways, you only have to ask and they are there to help you. P.S. Our grand children just love all the wild life, the lake, the pool, and the playground.
Jay Lake Campground and RV Park  (Minden, Ontario)
"Nice Park. Not Nice Owners"......   Park has some nice private sites. Unfortunately new owners in the park this year has ruined any positive features the park had. They treat the seasonal campers like it is a privledge to be in the park not like they are paying customers. The result is that, now most of the park is empty as long time seasonals have left the park following a summer of abuse from the owners. The once quiet, peaceful park now looks like a post apocalyptic wasteland. Not pleasant owners or atmosphere. Would strongly advise anyone looking for a park to look elsewhere.
Jay Lake Campground and RV Park  (Minden, Ontario)
"The new owners are something else!!"......   If someone wants a model on how NOT to run a business, look no further. 1) Overcharge, treat people like they're nothing, drive long time seasonal campers out because you, as new owners of Jay's Lake want their spot for your own friends and relatives. 2) Keep changing the rules as new ideas pop into your head. So anything that you tell seasonal campers or put in writing is meaningless. 3) Have as the first answer to any concern,"my husband can come with a length of chain at any time I tell him, and he'll tow your trailer." 4) Keep seasonal campers in a constant state of uncertainty because you don't know what you're supposed to do next or who you will bully next. It could be any one of your seasonal campers, pick one and let them guess! In all seriousness, however, the new owners of Jay's Lake are not nice people. They have shown us and the rest of the seasonal campers the perfect example of how NOT to run a business!!
"Campers beware - these are NOT nice owners!"
Jay Lake Campground and RV Park  (Minden, Ontario)
"How to destroy a park in 4 months"......   I 100% agree with the previous reviewer. We have been seasonal campers in Jay's Lake for a number of years and were very satisfied. The park has no amenities other than a pool. The park infrastruture and services are old and failing. The park does not have any lake access. (It is called Jay's Lake but is merely a shallow pond that will not support any wildlife other than snakes and frogs). Regardless of the parks failings, the quietness, location and comfortable campsites made it worthwhile to be a seasonal camper. The park was purchased by new owners earlier this year. Realizing that a small park does not have a lot of income potential we were expecting changes to make it profitable. The new owners did not communicate with the existing seasonal campers when arriving (only spreading rumours to selected people) and anyone questioning them is answered with "pull your trailer out if you don't like it". The park quickly become an uncomfortable atmosphere with much uncertainty. Still no communication was given. New rules are learned only by word of mouth and seem to change weekly. The owners created clique's with certain people who seem to have different rules than the rest. Seasonal rates were increased by 30% with no additional amenties to be added which are in no way in line with prices of other parks in the area. Especially parks that are not on a lake. A number of people who had been seasonals for over 20 years were told that they were not able to return next season and had to remove their trailers with no reason given. Would highly not recommend becoming a seasonal at Jay's Lake if you are looking for a relaxing drama free park.
Jay Lake Campground and RV Park  (Minden, Ontario)
"The Sign Says "New Owners""......   The sign says "New Owners" and the name has been changed to Jay's Lake. It is now a privilege to leave your trailer here year round it seems. Prices for seasonal sites have in effect gone up 30% for the 2014 season. The amount for winter storage is no longer deducted from the seasonal fee. Other outrageous increases no longer makes this seasonal park affordable when combined with badly outdated or non-existent amenities. The only real amenity is the swimming pool. There is a pond that is referred to as a "lake" that is weedy and has leeches and snakes. Local residents refer to it as a "frog pond". Seasonal campers have put up with new owners who have formed cliques with a few of them and seem to want to drive everybody else out to make room for the owner's relatives. New policies don't allow a trailer to remain in the campground after being sold so trailer owners lose thousands of dollars. A new hydro meter system is supposed to be installed. Seasonal owners are required to pay $300 deposit for the meter plus the cost of any hydro used. Even hydro companies don't charge for meters. But Jay's lake does. Talk about nickeling and diming! Hardly a restful camping experience. Not worth the hassle. If you want to stay for a few days, the hosts are more accommodating, but think twice if you're looking for a seasonal site. You may want to keep on looking.

Oakhill Pines Campground  (Bridgewater, Nova Scotia)
"Happy Campers"......   We stayed here this summer (July) and had a fabulous stay. The kids loved the freedom they had to ride their bikes around the park. Our site was great and had ample room for our trailer and all of our other camping goodies that are required when you travel with kids. The kids loved the pool and I spent many hours sitting there as they enjoyed themselves. Thanks for the great memories I am certain we will be back.

Hi there!! I just wanted to drop a note to say "Thank you" for your hospitality for our unexpected stop at your campground. We were the 2 couples (Meserve & Nickerson's) that were travelling together and broke down while we were on our way to Pubnico from Halifax and you were able to take us in back on Aug 4th for 3 nights on sites 107 & 110. We just wanted you to know that we had a very nice stay. The staff was very helpful by getting us right to the sites because of the Meserve's getting towed so that we could take care of the company that towed them over to your campground get partially set & then pay for our stay. The staff was very pleasant and accommodated us basically on a daily basis as we were unsure as to how long the repair would take. We met an incredible amount of fellow campers that were very sweet, hospitable. There were many that stopped in to say "welcome" and checked in with us daily to see how everything was going with the repair. Your seasonal campers made us feel right at home. We have made some new friends because of our stop at your campground. Many offered us best wishes on our journey as we were leaving. So many thanks for you hospitality and if we are ever in the area again we will make sure we will stop at Oakhill Pines Campground. Thank you again !!

Fort Steele Campground  (Cranbrook, British Columbia)
"Look for something different"......   Rv sites were small, staff need some extra customer service training. They have a pool which was nice, the location is the selling feature on this near to cranbrook. I wont be back. I'd rather stay at the campground in canal flats , better rates, better services as hey keep their store open late for the campers. Between two family run campgrounds canal flats is way better.

"Tent Site 2013"......   Excellent! What more can I say well the showers were great, washooms were clean. Tent site was large, we fit 3 tents on the one site (paid extra but that was fine). We brought our boat, and we were given the option to keep it in their storage compound at no extra cost, or near the tent site. Shawna and Ugesh go out of their way to ensure we were happy. Prices were great!

"Excellent Prices and Near the natural hotsprings"......   The young couple were very friendly and helpful. The campground was very busy, yet they still made time to talk to everyone. They allow fires, which some campgrounds near them dont. The couple showed us various tent spots, which we ended up taking one by the river. Prices are great, very cheap compared to any other campgrounds around. Near the natural hotsprings, wow....amazing! Not commercialized! They have great deals on their website. We will be back! See you in 2014.
Motel and Camping Hache  (Nigadoo, New Brunswick)
I camped there seasonal for 7 years and the last 2 years with the new owners is like being bullyed at school. They want your oppinion as long as it's good ,but if it's bad they black ball you. And since we left to go to another campground they don't allow you to visite our friends on the grounds.
Oakhill Pines Campground  (Bridgewater, Nova Scotia)
"AVOID THIS CAMPGROUND!"......   If you want a nice quiet campground in the woods, this is NOT for you. Crowded, with trailer/RV sites so close together you might as well stay home for privacy. One trailer was even parked on one of the roads leading down to a row of campsites. Dogs barking, pine needles over everything, people standing outside tents talking till 12:30pm, washrooms filthy, unclean, old and out of toilet paper consistently. No staff checking and cleaning them during the day unless a complaint made. Although the husband is helpful and mild, the wife is not. Confusion in booking, blame put on us, not adequate book keeping records, not good at e-communication. Free wifi a joke, if 100 people are on and you're 101, you're out of luck! Although there were some activities appealing to children, the money we spent for this place was not worth it at all. There were some private sites in another part of the park, unservices, but large and private which they did not have open on the very busy long weekend, as they preferred to jam everyone into close proximity and bleed them dry. Charging for guests, and cost of soft wood for fires is ridiculous. If you are crazy enough to stay there, get wood from locals who sell it cheaper than $7 an armload! Site so small barely able to fit six people around the campfire without sitting out on the road. Also, one of the kids got a tick on them. So, we won't be holding our family reunion in that site nor recommending it to anyone, only as a place to avoid, which is a shame as it is in a prime location, close to Bridgewater, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay. Nickle and dime-ing visitors and trying to bleed every cent, and not providing good customer service is not the way to stay in business. They only are friendly to their seasonals. Enough is enough. We know nice campsites and this is NOT one of them.
Green Acres Campground and RV Park  (Kincardine, Ontario)
"Avoid at All Costs!"......   We had spoke to management early in August about being in the area on the weekend of the 16th of August. They indicated that they do not take reservations for a single night but said to stop by and that we could dry-camp at the very least if they were booked. Dry camping is not any problem for us in our motorhome so, On Saturday August the 17th we stopped by the campground, I passed by a lady in a "Green Acres" staff shirt - assumably management or a employee. Never said Hi, Welcome or anything courteous......Just shot out a question like "You got a reservation?". I polietly replied "No Ma'am". She laughed. Wow I thought - I turned and headed towards the office, in error I went to enter the wrong door, what a mistake that was!! The lady in a raised voice said "Can't you read? That is for staff only". So a honest mistake to touch the wrong doorknob was all it took to realize this place was a JOKE! Needless to say I turned around and backed our 45' motorhome out their driveway - FOREVER! Now to put this context my wife and I travel all across North America in our RV. While not full-timers we treat it as our cottage and this year we will spend over 70 nights camping. We are a respectful, young couple with well behaved children. Never before have we been treated like this and it was with great pleasure that I left Green Acres Camp that evening! Oh I understand that my single-night of camping fees won't make or break their poorly run business but what will cost them is this; Everwhere I travel and everyone I meet - I will tell them to avoid this campground at all costs! Let's face it, word of mouth is the best advertising, be it good or in this case bad. Lets just assume that I did check in, if this is how guests are treated upon arrival - How would I be treated after they collected my money???? I will take much pleasure in informing Woodall's, Good Sam Club and Trailer Life Directory with my expierence. And I might suggest that management and the staff of this property take a drive over to say.....a camground like Quinte Isle near Sandbanks provincial park and find out how to operate a RV park! If you are near Kincardine or Port Elgin, visit Fisherman's Cove or Auburn Campground instead - In fact camp at the Walmart parking lot - you will be treated much better!!!!

Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground  (Baddeck, Nova Scotia)
Nice campground with a playground and small pool. Showers and toilets were very clean, cleaned several times per day (granted, we were there on LAbour Day Weekend and the campground was full, but still). There were lots of activities for the kids.
