We chose KOA North Toronto as we wanted somewhere close to home (Markham, ON) and fun for our 2-year old to have his first camping experience. The reviews and camp features were what instantly attracted us.
The staff are friendly, the entire campground incredibly clean and well kept, the facilities good, the pool sparkling clean, and the security top-notch (near constant patrolling by staff in golf carts).
This is a family campground first and foremost -- we didn't experience overly loud music, drunkenness, or partying while we were there. Parents' were comfortable enough to let their kids play unattended (just like when we were kids!).
The one and only slightly negative thing I can say is that you may want to consider choosing a regular tent spot rather than a "back-in" if you're in a tent as they feature dividing fences for more privacy. However, you'll obviously lose electricity and water access, so it's a subjective decision.
