Positives: no positives
Negatives: The owner was the most unprofessional business owner I have ever seen!! She should be ashamed of the way she acted!
Comments: I witnessed the owner of this campground evict renters that have been there for 3 years over 1 noise complaint. They have nevere had a complaint before and all apologies were ignored. The owner yelled at the renters in front of their friend and family and acted in a very unprofessional manner. I have never seen a business owner treat their clients in such a way. It was despicable! I will Never attend this campground again and recommend anyone to not camp there.

Negatives: The staff and the owner are very unprofessional and screamed and hollered at a friend in front of all her family and friends the day after a noise complaint. The night of the complaint, she apologized and was told she was being given a warning, but the next day the owner came and evicted her. The owner wouldn't even listen or allow her to speak or apoligize. She had family and friends from out of town visiting and the owner would not even talk to her in private. The owner was so unprofessional, her daughter had to cover her mouth and drag her away with no explanation as to why she was so upset.
Comments: Worst camping experience ever!

Positives: The staff were great, helpful and well manned. The site provides all the conveniences. Loved the wifi connection, indoor bathrooms and shower were clean, store on site with reasonable prices, great fishing. decent swimming area (although shallow) We were a large group and a few sat up and talked around the campfire after 11:pm (quiet time) and no visits from staff to shut them down at all. (although our group was cautious to be reasonably quiet after quiet time) The campsite was kept clean. Water is potable
Negatives: We did book 4 sites but when we arrived only 2 sites were reserved. I felt I discussed extensively pricing on all 4 sites when reserving (2 with services 2 without services) When we arrived there were only the 2 serviced sites available and no record of the 2 no service sites. It worked out okay as we were able to take two large sites and staff allowed all of our units to camp together.
The sites are quite open with little privacy. The sites closer to the lake are quite small. The larger lots further back are open without trees between the sites.
The out door bathrooms are pretty bad, don't seem to have been swept out and full of webs, but the indoor bathrooms were nearby.
Comments: Overall our experience was enjoyable. The kids enjoyed themselves as well and we felt safe in letting them go to the park. I liked that the swim area is well marked out. We enjoyed the boating and fishing. The speed limit is enforced and kids are safe to walk or ride bikes without fear of someone going to fast.

Positives: The Surroundings are nice and the inside of the cabin was clean.
Negatives: The Staff.
Comments: So the place itself is okay but the staff are absolutely awful. If you're making any noise above a whisper past 11:00 pm be prepared to be berated and treated like children. The staff are snotty when asked questions in the "I know you are but what am I?" kind of way. The security guard threatened us with going directly to jail when we asked if there had been specific complaints against us re: noise the night before, ya...like THAT happens. One of our party is hearing impaired so yes, the volume of the conversation was a little louder than it could have been but it certainly wasn't anything people would have complained about. We aren't loud partying teenagers either, we are all in our 30's, 40's and 50's. They have a zero refund policy so they're modus operandi seems to be to charge people for the full weekend, fabricate a noise complaint and kick them out, then re-rent the cabin to someone else in order to make twice the money off the site. I'll never go back and would advise everyone else to give the place a miss. Save yourself the hassle and money and find a campsite that isn't run like a fascist state.

We stayed there for 2 nights and it was a horrible experience. The staff were rude and not helpful at all. After 11pm be prepared to go to bed because they do not allow you to sit around the fire and have a conversation with the people you are camping with. Even if you are in the camper after 11pm they will knock on your door and tell you to be quiet and go to sleep. We are all adults but were treated like children. I will never go back there and never reccommend this campsite to anyone.
The only good thing about this campsite is the bathrooms were always clean.

Positives: Cleanliness, palyground, clean showers
Negatives: Some of the seasonal campers who spend little time at their sites should be moved to new area, to free up some of the more desirable sites for other campers.
Comments: I have camped at Plamondon Whitesands year after year, and it by far it's my favorite place. Love it! The staff are great, the grounds are well kept and when rules are set, they make sure they are followed, not like some of the other places I have camped. Great place to camp with the grankids or family and friends.

I absolutely adore this place. Its inexpensive, clean, tranquil and completely relaxing. The people are friendly and the cabins are so cozy. Dont forget your bathing suit... but if you forget your sunblock, no worries they sell you some at there little store.
Its a beautiful place.
