The prices are reasonable and the staff was friendly. Our actual camping site was not like a camping site at all. It was more like a gravel parking lot. The pool and mini golf was fun for the kids, next year I plan on booking with the campground next door and possibly using the amenities here, much nicer grounds down... More

We had an amazing stay this past week at the Riverside Resort and Campground. We had the best and friendly service from Shirley Schenkeveld when we checked in! She made sure our family was happy and set our trip off on a great start. We don't go on many trips, so we really appreciate all the staff's service well we... More

I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance and understood it must be cancelled five day before the arrival date or payment in full would be charged. What I was not advised was that full payment was processed on my credit card at the time the reservation was made. This should have been explained. When our plans changed, sent an... More

Absolutely disgraceful, smelly recycled dump. Paid over $200 for mid week stay. Oh but it has water slides and mini golf. Yup, more run down, dilapidated attractions. I have paid less for substantially more. This place is a disgrace and appalling to stay at. The extras don't come for free with the $200 room, thats more money. Are you kidding... More

My two teens and I stayed here this week. First impression was that it was a little dated. Check in staff were pleasant and helpful. However, once in our cabin it was spotless and fully stocked. The only thing I didn't like is that they charged paying guests $4.50 to use the waterslides. And they also charged for the minigolf.

We were only going to be an hour at the pool area so the manager (Paul) gave us the evening rate which was super. The kids had a wonderful time. Thanks to Shirley who recommended we go there. Thanx to all the staff who are very friendly. Will be back

If you like a campground type environment, but like a more comfy place to stay, look no further. We stayed 3 nights near the end of June in a studio suite with 2 double beds. It was actually one of four units in a small townhouse like cabin. It was quite clean considering it is a cabin style accommodation. There... More
