Positives: Incredibly clean facilities, kids had a blast. Staff and owners are certainly in the customer care business.
Comments: We heard there were new owners and decided to try again. Wow is all we can say. Owners were super friendly and are making improvement over improvement. Talking to some of the seasonals there they said the park is so much more relaxed. We are thinking this may be where we go as seasonals when we are ready. We have booked 3 weeks already for this summer.

Positives: The owners are very friendly and accommodating. We have a tent, and the owner discussed the sites that he thought would be appropriate for us, when we made our reservation. When we arrived, he showed us some sites that were a bit higher elevation, because of the rain. We found the washrooms to be spotless. We were with a group of 22 people who were cycling , everyone was happy with the park, and we would definitely keep this on our list to return in the future.
Comments: This is a lovely clean park. The sites are a good size.

Positives: We love the area. This is a great park. We hope that this place can move on from the terrible owners that have tarnished the parks reputation. We look forward to working with the new owners and seeing good reviews at the end of 2016
Comments: We love port Elgin. It is our second home in the summer

Positives: Glad we found a different park with friendly staff
Negatives: The reservation clerk was the most non accommodating park person that I have ever come across. ..not a very good Canadian! I have never experienced such poor customer service at an RV park...
Comments: Never did get to stay here as we lived 4 hours from the park and they wanted a personal visit/interview...they suggested we drive down for a night but couldn't guarantee a spot...REALLY! We travel in a 40 foot Motor Home. We asked for a seasonal for the last half of the summer.....they had one available but gave it away because we could not come in for an interview...We were in the middle of down sizing to full timers in our RV..

Positives: Nice Sites. Great Location. Close to everything. Great experience.
Negatives: Owners are impossible. Had an elderly guest for the night. Staff attended our site to "remind" us that check out time was approaching. Our guest left @ 10:30 AM. We left @ 11. We came back @ 12:30 to find another "Reminder" taped to our door. We are seasonal campers. Give me a break. what kind of idiots are these owners.
Comments: We love Port Elgin

Positives: The people that camp there and the people we have met and become friends with over the last several years. We love Port Elgin and it has become our second home. The beaches are great and it is close to everything.
Negatives: The trees need to be trimmed and tidy'd up. A lot of the dead trees have potential to fall. The owners are impossible. The experience could be so much better if they would be nicer. The owners must read this and being intelligent people they have to see what they are doing to the parks reputation by being so nasty. I totally agree with most of the rules...but it is how you enforce them that gets people mad. The owners have a gold mine there and would make the same income if they were nicer. I believe they would feel a lot better seeing positive reviews then the many negatives.
Comments: The park has really been a home away from home for us for several years now.

Positives: Park is in a great location near the town of Port Elgin
Negatives: I have none for the park but the owners are impossible, especially the female. She cannot even look you in the eye. I can't believe an educated person would not see the value in treating people with respect and courtesy when they run a business. They would be so much more successful. I believe the male is somewhat better but not by much. They have a Gold Mine there and are too bitter to realize it. Less attractive parks in the area are full on the weekend...but not this one ! It is a sad situation.
Comments: We have a great time whenever we are there

Positives: The only positives were a clean pool and bathroom.
Negatives: The owners had no sales skills they are strictly about making money. They were ignorant and disrespectful.
Comments: We have been coming here for a couple years now. We showed up at 2 pm for check in they said the people were just leaving, so therefore not to return to the park until 4 pm. We had inquired about just entering the premises for the kids to swim but we're told again not to return until 4 pm. We then arrived back at four and due to no interaction with the owners our stay was fine. Upon check out we were told that we had to be out by 12 meanwhile the people before had a check out at 2 pm. We then packed our things and we're going to the pool for an hour when the owner approached us in a very unfriendly manner and told us to get the kids out of the pool and leave the premises due to our check out at 12 pm has expired.

Positives: Everything clean and tidy,nice playground for the kids and mine loved the walking trail at the back of the property. Rates are reasonable as are the rules. We found our lot clean and cut upon our arrival, fire pit was cleaned out. I guess the last campers had left firewood behind and it was stacked ready for us to use. Quiet at night, great pool, clean washrooms.
Negatives: Need some shade at the pool, the lady in the store doesn't seem like a people person, didn't appear too friendly but the other staff was helpful.
Comments: Camped here the long August weekend and had a wonderful time. We loved Port Elgin Beach as well as the shopping. Saw awesome sunsets. Had a great stay and plan on returning next year
Fri 02 Aug 2013

Positives: pool, parks, clean, friendly people, Great staff. New walking trail. close to both Port and Southampton.
Comments: I have been coming to this particular camp ground all my life,I would have to say that I love this place it is like a second home to me and my family. Not only did I grow up there but my children have been lucky to also enjoy their summers in this beautiful campgrounds. the previous owners were a little different but never bothered us, as we gave them no reason to. The new owners Cathy and Russ are wonderful people, they have been nothing but kind people,and are always willing to give a helping hand if needed. They have a terrific staff who are always smiling and very friendly. We have never had any issues with our stays or their RULES they are put in place to make for a safe fun experience.

Sat 06 Jul 2013
Positives: great pool, everything clean and tidy, pretty gardens, helpful staff. KIDS LOVED IT !!
Negatives: not a lot of stock in the store but the park is close to town so not a big deal

Wed 03 Jul 2013
Positives: Clean washrooms, clean pool
Negatives: Owners are only interested in making money, no people skills, very rude people, the campground is run like a prison with the stifling rules for visitors fires and anything to do with having a fun time
Comments: Clean park, a bit noisy after 1100pm, but the owner is awful, everything is about money and extra costs and they advertise internet but none on sites only at camp office WOULD NOT RECOMEND THIS PLACE FOR FAMILIES
Sat 15 Jun 2013
Positives: Love the park. Met great people
Negatives: The owners are still as bitter as always. Please read these reviews owners. You should own a gravel pit.
Comments: Been there for more then 1 year now as a seasonal
Wed 12 Jun 2013
Positives: none at all.
Negatives: Owners and manager are horrible people.Make you feel bad being there. They should not be in the business at all.
Would never stay there again.
Comments: Previous owner was a good person
Wed 15 May 2013
Positives: All of the above
Negatives: Why be negative when we are blessed with the beauty of the natural environment enveloping us.
Comments: I have been a seasonal camper for the last three years. This is a beautiful, natural oasis, great community of campers, some of whom have been permanent for over thirty years, previously with the old owners and now with the new. The facilities are well kept, organized, showers are spotlessly clean, the new pool fantastic. For families with children perfect and a great place to make new friends. Lots of activities for both young and old. A well run establishment. Worth a fun and relaxing stay.
Fri 24 Aug 2012
Positives: Great town. Great location. Friendly campers. clean park.
Negatives: Too many un-trimmed trees. Scrached up my RV. Impossible owners with no common sense or people skills. Will not go back as the negatives outweigh the positives
Comments: Friendly campers in a clean park. Owners have no personalty. Very uptight. Very controlling. Very crude. Extra fees for everything. These people were obviously not campers themselves. They have no people skils. They were very harrassing.
Sat 30 Jun 2012
Positives: pool was nice, park for kids was nice
Negatives: Owners are real nasty people! They kicked my family out (myself, my 1 and 2 year olds, my cousin and her 8 year old twins) because "we were not their kind". Overcharged, changed the rules after we got there and make all our kids cry. Used foul language in front of our kids. We were quiet and minded our own but she did not like us for some reason.
Comments: first day/night it was good
Mon 11 Jun 2012
Positives: Location is good, a quick drive to the beach. Love Port Elgin. They keep the park clean.
Negatives: Owner is a drill sergeant!! Rules for absolutely everything...a real pain if you have a guest. For someone to just drop in..you better go to the office or she'll be at your door in two seconds! Thinks everyone is out to get her or rip her off. I realize you need rules to run a business but she is crazy and takes things way too far.
Comments: Decent place to camp but owner is too much.
Sat 12 May 2012
Positives: Great area. Clean park
Negatives: Fees for everything. Can't have the occasional visitor without paying per person even if they are not staying the night. I like rules but they are way over the top. These owners have no people skills.
Comments: We are professional campers who have camped all over Canada. Going seasonal this year. Don't know if it's a good idea, but we love the area. Owners are very uptight, especially the female. Run like a military boot camp. We believe you have to run a tight ship, but they seem to over the top.
Fri 08 Jul 2011
Positives: grounds swimming pool
Negatives: Owners get out while you still have people in your park. You are horrible.
Comments: Beautiful park, big lots. The owners especially the lady are the worst owners possible. They should not own a business. Very hard to get along with she is just her way or no way. Will never suggest it to people every again. Stay away from this park.
Tue 04 Aug 2009
Positives: Camp is in the Port Elgin area and this is a nice location.
Negatives: Owner and Manager lady is hard to get along with.
Comments: The lady that runs this camp is terrible. She is very difficult to get along with and patrols the camp like a sergeant. Find a more friendly run camp if you want a good camping experience.
