We came home from the campground after staying 2 days and my 5 yr old daughter threw up all the way home for 2 hours, and then again when we got home, then I woke up at 5:30 this morning puking and pooing so I know it's the flu. It was sooo busy there I can only imagine how many... More

This campground has great features! Mini golf, petting zoo, cafe, beach... Lots to do for the whole family. Washrooms could use an upgrade but still clean and functional!! Loved being sble to get a good cup of coffee in the morning at the cafe!

I've been tent camping at ol' Macdonald for several years. And make it a point every year to book. The Sites are well taken care of, the staff are always friendly and helpfull. Dealing with staff they always give you that family owned feel. There is a famers market saturday morning. A swing ride for the kids that's just a... More

Just writing this after reading a lot of the negative comments. I admit I was a little afraid of what I was going to find after reading so many negative comments. I'll just get right to it. Registration was straight forward with them having a manned booth right at the entrance with map and receipts all ready for you. If... More

Love this campground. We just got back from a nice time here. The staff was very helpful and friendly especially the lady that cleaned the bathrooms. The lady who handled the reservations was also very helpful in finding us a nice spot for next year to be near our friends! My only complaint is some of the outdated playgrounds seem... More

If you like screaming kids till 11:00 pm, camping side by side in a pasture with no trees and disgustingly dirty wash/shower house then this is your place! Very mis lead by photos on website. Parents WATCH your children not everyone wants to hear them running and screaming all day and night! Seems like a daycare for kids under 7-8... More

We took a trip to Ol MacDonald before school let out (end of June) and we went during the week (Mon - Fri). I think this was a great time of year to visit and it was actually really quiet because summer holidays hadn't started yet. We were in spot #27 which we thought was very nice and close (but... More

We have been going every summer for the past 4 years. We love it! We've stayed in the cabins as well as set up tents. Nice beach - lake stays shallow a long way and so far, blue-green algae hasn't been a problem. That's a big deal because for the past few years, the lakes in central Alberta had been... More

The Good: - lots of activities for the kids to do (pedal carts, playgrounds, merry go round, arcade, petting zoo, basketball court) - beach is large and water stays shallow quite a ways out - music is played at the beach - fireworks show on long weekends - showers are $1 for five minutes, decent length of time - good...

Cute place to entertain kids for a weekend. Lots to keep them entertained, and they are totally bagged after a day here. If you want full hook ups, it is literally a parking lot. I used a cabin and it was comfortable, but the bathroom was gross! The toilet seat may have been here before the campground was built.
