We camped here for two nights on a weekend - NEW MANAGERS for 2013 Dave & Carol came out of retirement to manage the campground - and their experience, caring that each camper has a great experience, & attention to detail show very well... CLEAN Washrooms were very clean - no matter what time of day/night STAFF The overall attentiveness... More

WHY WE CHOSE LIONS CAMPGROUND RED DEER We had a last minute cancellation of a planned camping festival weekend - and with only a few days to find another camping venue... started searching - Many other places were either full or priced too high WHAT I SAW LAST YEAR Last year I visited friends who were camping here, and noticed...

Tiny campground, amazed at how many people they cram into such a tight place. No fires, they have terrible rules for pets (cannot leave pets unattended at all, no exceptions, you will get kicked out if you pop into the city to get groceries and leave your pup in your air conditioned trailer. The lady at the front said that... More

Spent a few hours visiting friends at the Lions Campground on the Saturday of the Victoria Day weekend, and I have to say that it was a HUGE improvement from what I expected based on previous reviews. Very well supervised, scrupulously clean washrooms, an all-around pleasant experience. I understand that new, experienced managers took over on May 1st and it... More

This has got to be far the worst place to stay. I used to love staying here, but since the city took over running it not so much. No one is here from 7am- 5pm , the bathrooms are dirty, people have their dogs off leash in the day. then at 5pm they have 2-3 girls come in that have... More

I have stayed at the Lions twice, both times because I was in between housing and neither time was pleasant. I have dogs (which the management never liked) and cleaned up after them without fail, having been warned every time I entered the park by the management because their landscape crew complained of dog feces near my trailer site.

I don't know whether it's a Canadian thing or not; but in England being able to put pegs in the ground is a fundamental. This shares the same gravel flooring as other Canadian campsites (Two Jack). A leaflet told us not to tie anything to trees, but I ended up using them to tie off guy ropes and didn't get... More

We spotted the "Lion Campground" signage and found the campground. When inquiring about getting a spot to park.for the night, we were told "sorry we don't allow you... More

I have not camped at this site and can only speak to my experience using their dumping station. I have used their sani dump regularly over the past three years and have found it to be in steadily declining condition and the prices always going up. Used to be $4 in 2010, last year $5, this year $6. The condition... More

Camped here to enjoy the bike paths while attending a conference. Found the staff a bit terse but pleasant enough, and they were helpful about extending my checkout time several times, first when a session ran late and then when I wanted to spend more time biking. I enjoyed a quiet, pleasant stay in beautiful autumn surroundings. People who tend... More
