Positives: clean sites. Nice pool and play ground.
Negatives: unfriendly staff. Noon check out. They charge 3 dollars per person to friends who are just stopping in to say hello and not even using any facilities. They charge 1 dollar for every five minutes of shower time and it takes 4minutes to Adjust the temperature.for 30 dollars a night, it is not a great value since you have to shell out more money during your stay. We were running late packing up and had an angry knock on the door and was rudely asked if we were staying another night when we were clearly already hooked up and almost ready to go. This was only at 12:20.
Comments: The campground in general was clean. Nicely treed sites. Staff is not very friendly and charged our friends 3dollars each just to stop in and say hello.

Positives: Absolutely none.
Negatives: Very poor business practices.
Comments: Well, this campground owner will only get my money once so I hope he enjoys it. We will never, ever, stay here. Booked a weekend site on Monday, gave them my credit card. Had to cancel on Tuesday, less than 24 hours later because of a family illness. Originally I was told the charges would be refunded, then I got a call back and said the owner said I would not get a refund because of it being a long weekend. We've camped all over Manitoba and a 48hour notice to cancel is a general practice. Apparently, repeat customers are not his first concern, and when I asked to talk to the owner he was "not available" , right ! Sadly one bad campground makes all of Manitoba look bad.

Positives: Very nice treed property with large campsites
Negatives: The owners of this campground are grouchy miserable people. If you don't mind being yelled at for having children playing at the park, getting charged extra money for visitors and having a non relaxing camping trip than this campground is for you. I will NEVER go to this campground again!
Comments: Millers is a place where families are supposed to be welcome but the seasonal site occupants and the owners make overnight campers uncomfortable to be there. Like you are on their turf. Not pleasant.

Positives: clean pool and clean bathrooms
Negatives: see general experience notation. It will just make me angrier to type it again.
Comments: We chose to stay at Miller's given its convenient location on the the Trans Canada. However, we knew going in that we had to have a thick skin. It started with our check in when we were questioned about the license plate # given (it had a different sequence of #s and letters because we are not from Manitoba). The scrutiny by the owners continued when the owner showed up at our site near the playground to question us if the kids making the noise at the playground were ours. We replied that our kids were with us, and ready for bed (given how young our kids were). The owner went on to lecture us about how others were tenting and did not appreciate the noise (NB - these were not our kids). The next night there were noisy teens at the playground being very rough with the playground equipment until almost midnight, but we never saw the owner come and do anything about it. We were payed up for another night but left the next day, tired. The rules are that you are only allowed one vehicle on the site. We moved the tow vehicle in to the campground to hook up the 5th wheel, and moved the family vehicle over to the empty site to load the bike rack, and were chastised by the owner for having a vehicle in another site (for an hour at most), even though we were leaving a day early and we did not ask for a refund for that night. Welcome to Friendly Manitoba!

Negatives: Charge on price for guests they know and a different price for new people. When confronted, owner just smiled....
Comments: This is my second review, hopefully my first one is also posted. So Millers charges $3 per person for visitors including new born babies and 86 year old grandmas. These are 2-4 hour visits, no facilities used We paid for 6 x 3 on Friday. Saturday and Sunday visitors we charged $2 per person so I went to the office and talked to the owner. Her response was 'oh, I made a mistake' Saturday and Sunday....with a smug smile on her face. So her is my personal opinion.......if you are a friend or relative of the owner you pay one price but if you are new you pay the higher price. Also, we we not given any receipts so my question is 'are they just pocketing' the cash or are they claiming it is income.....As I stated in my first comment, WE WILL NOT EVER BE BACK AND WHEN ANY OF OUR NEW OR OLD FRIENDS AS ABOUT OUR EXPERIENCE THEY WILL GET AN EARFUL. NEVER NEVER WILL WE BE BACK. LB, WPG

Positives: This campground is very clean. The washrooms and showers are well above the standards of other campgrounds. Our kids loved the pool and playground.
Comments: Our family tried this campground on a recommendation from friends. We went for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The staff were courteous and professional.

July 2009 - If you enjoy being harassed by the owners and wish to stay in a military campground, this is the campground for you. There are many trailers up for sale here, so that speaks for itself. Mrs. campground owner sits smoking in the office, and has been seen many times yelling at campers in front of other campers. She has no business sense or class. If there is an issue, most mature business owners would speak respectfully and calmly to work out issues. She obviously a very emotionally driven woman. Mr. Campground owner waits and watches for rulebreakers just for the opportunity to flex his muscles and put people in their place.
There are many rules at this campground which include 10km/hour speed limit (if broken by even 5 km/hour you will be hunted down and corrected), pitching a tent on your own property (even if its for kids to play in, rather than sleep in, you will be corrected and warned) having people stay or visit your property (you will receive a visit from the muscle flexer to serve as warning not to break rules). - Just to name a few.
I for one, would prefer to spend my hard earned money in a family friendly campground, rather than a military campground.
I feel sorry for the many campers who are trying to sell their space there. Hopefully the owners can hold back their harassement long enough for potential buyers to look around. That wasn't the case for me.
