“Loved It..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

we spent the weekend last week and enjoyed our stay very much. The grandchildren loved the pool and kept busy there. The staff was amazing. the life guards were friendly and very helpful. Good cooking at the canteen. all in all it’s a great place to camp and visit. we would definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

We were at Hartt Island last weekend and had a great time. The check in was smooth for us and our site was spacious and had a nice view of the water. The facilities were great and the pool even better. The kids really enjoyed the pool and you could tell others were too. We also took out the kayaks and the water and islands were so nice. We noticed there were other campers who brought their boats in. There are also walking trails you can go on and also bike to the city on. I recommend this campground is you are interested in the activities they have like mini golf, the pool and the trails.

Room Tip: Try for a water view

When we arrived they had changed our lot randomly. We went to check on original lot we picked and were assured it was usable. We had someone offer to show it to us and then they disappeared. When we did find a staff member they still weren't sure which lot was ours. Eventually we figured out they wanted to stick us between two picnic tables on dirt with no space to actually fit our tent. We asked to see the other lot the computer had randomly changed us too. It was a short walk away from the parking lot. This spot at least had grass but was mostly on a hill and between the mini golf (the back of our tent touched the mini golf) and the water slides. At 9 am they turned the local radio station on very very loud. Needless to say not a relaxing camp spot. The building the showers and toilets were in were infested with spiders. Far more than other campgrounds or semi out door facilities I have previously experienced. Overall it seem disorganized, crowded, noisy, and no staff at night to stop the unsafe firing of fireworks 2 feet away from tents and trailers. The pool and mini golf are extra. The only pro to this location is it is close to downtown and only about $13 taxi fare from officers square.

We booked with a group two months in advance and a week before the park called to try to change our site on us and seemed confused by where our friends were reserved. They kept us at the site and said it was fine.

We arrived to check in and it was complete chaos with multiple sites double and triple booked including ours. They had people set up in the parking lot and we were placed in front of someones seasonal lot. They moved us around the second night to a smaller site away from our group and had also been reserved by someone else. We were told it was a problem with their online bookings but I don't believe it is being handled correctly and one staff said it was going to be like this until August. We have also heard the organization last year was just as bad.

We tried not to let this ruin our nice weekend and made the best out of it. The pool area and sites in the old part are amazing and very clean and new and we really enjoyed it with our two small children. The bike trail is right there and follows the river and we had a great time biking down to the Fredericton Market on Saturday morning.

The staff were accommodating and tried their best but it definitely felt that the mayhem and upset visitors were a way of life. Great park but buyer beware!

Our family visited the campground and really enjoyed it. The lots were big, well gravelled and spaced apart nicely. You don't feel cramped at this campground with your RV. There are drive through lots as well as the standard style.

The upgrades have improved the overall feel of the campground as I was here a few years ago. The new washroom facilities are great (neat and clean). We did some fishing and caught a couple bass. The campground has some really great water views. It is quiet, very family friendly and enjoyable as there are lots of activities to chose from (bikes trails, fishing, kayaking/canoeing, swimming). Also, one other point is there are not a lot of bugs here. Some campgrounds you get eaten alive.. that wont happen here as you are not buried in the woods.

I noticed some other reviews about price, frankly there aren't many parks with these nice of sites and amenities so I think it's worth it. I will pay for my kids to enjoy themselves for the day so I can sit back and enjoy some down time too :)

We stayed for a week-end in an area with water & electric, but no septic. $50 per night (with extra charges for pool and other attractions) is expensive. It is a great location, but not a great value.

The thing that really stood out to me is the customer service... or, the lack thereof. I showed up at 10:AM, no one was in the office, and eventually someone told me to go ahead and set up my trailer and come back at 11:AM when the office opened. I did just that, and the person working in the office showed up at 11:30. There was confusion with the price (we were overcharged), and the booking system was not working. Multiple staff were COMPLETELY ignorant of RVing, and had no idea if they even had a dump station. Overall, the staff are well meaning but incompetent.

It rained the week-end we were there, and because of this they shut down almost everything, including the canteen. I would expect with a full campground they would at least attempt to open the canteen for busy periods, but this was not the case. Poor communication to campers.

Overall, overpriced and poorly run.

Hartt Island Campground/Resort

We camp regularly at Hartt Island and we absolutely love it! This is an awesome location and has really changed over the last year. There are so many new upgrades and it has made a huge difference. This is a resort not just a plain old campground. You can fish all day here so bring your rod and use one of their canoes while you fish or you can just enjoy the amazing scenery. The water view is breathtaking and if you take a kayak or canoe out the scenery is serene! You can bring your boat as there is a launch and dock as well the sites are huge and you have tons if space to put it. There is a great dock you can fish off of and enjoy a moment!

The sites are really great. We are talking drinkable city of Fredericton water which is good. The electric boxes at each site are neat and convenient as well as sewer and water hookup. There are two kinds of sites one is a drive through sites which motor homes can drive through so easily. In fact, caravans come often and love those sites as they don't have to unhook their cars when they arrive! There are also the regular sites which are overlooking the water directly or just near the water. The sites above all have a water view with the ones closes to the walking trail having the best view (obviously).

There are a lot of great tenting sites which are enjoyed by many. This year the great thing is that if you are tenting near the pool you can actually get into the washrooms near the pool as they gated the pool differently to allow for access at all times to those facilities.

There are two big new building that have very clean washroom facilities. The ones near the pool have changing areas also.

The facilities in the top section are amazing too. Very nice laundry facilities, showers which are roomy for a family and are kept neat and tidy. (See photos)

The pool is like none you will ever see at a campground. The photos say is all. They do serve pop/ice cream etc . There is a section for younger kids too that has great slides!

There is also a nicely matured mini putt course here. Again, very fun and enjoyable especially after the long day of swimming!

The walking trails the go right into Fredericton are super! You can rent bikes and take them right into the city and enjoy the city market on Saturday morning or go down to the light house on the green and grab an ice cream. There are places all over to place your bike and if you go to the light house you can bring your bike right up on deck when you sit and enjoy! The walking trails are a best kept secret to many. You can walk your puppies on them, ride bikes or just enjoy a walk! They are paced as you get into the city and you will be impressed! What campground can you enjoy a wonderful downtown green and be camping too!! If you bring a boat you can go to Fredericton downtown and I think dock at the Fredericton dock downtown.

This place is a great place for families as well as couples looking to enjoy a clean, updated campground and have a nice time enjoying the outdoors and all this place has to offer. We highly recommend this place, you will love it! If you we're here a few years ago, you will be pleasantly surprised at how this place has taken shape!
