We live 3 hours from town and came up after work. We were called and told to hurry up because security would have to check us in at when we arrived 9:30 pm. Staff was rude and not accommodating whatsoever. Felt like being in a concentration camp no fire pits and tiny spots that were very cramped. Only had one... More

Half the staff are kind, friendly, helpful and sociable. The other half are impatient and rude. I arrived at the gate yesterday, got ignored because she was busy typing so I kept quiet, and a few seconds later with no eye contact made she greeted me with an abrupt "Yes?". There is obviously a lack of people skills. I reported... More

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

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
