KOA Cavendish
Reviewed August 1, 2012

We stayed in the trailer rental they have on site. The trailer was clean and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the kids camp and went everyday. Sooo many activities for them, with the hayrides, treasure hunts, outdoor movies, and that is not counting the jumping pillow, playground and pool. Everyone was nice and very helpful especially the young teens that help with the activities. It was a perk to have the cart going around in the evening selling firewood, no dragging it back to your site yourself. We would definitely recommend and are planning our trip for next summer!

Stayed: July 2012, traveled with family

This is our second trip to KOA Cavendish and it is great for kids.

The Kids Kamp is great for the kids and lots of different things planned to keep them entertained on top of the usual pool, jumping pillow and playground. Pool has two areas one for really small kids and a larger pool, both get solar warming. Bathroom areas clean. Laundry area has large commercial machines and great dryers. Wagon rides usually jammed with kids and the weekly wet wagon ride a big hit with kids of all ages. Then it is close to other amenities in Cavendish area - beach, boardwalk etc. Beach day wasn't a good day as generally not able to swim due to jellyfish and the Nat'l park desk didn't have that on notices.

Despite a Kamp K9, dogs that bark aren't welcome. There were numerous dogs in the park and with kids running, babies crying and general fun being had by all there is a lot of noise even up to and after quiet time. Dogs bark at other dogs, yelling kids etc. We had dogs and yes they bark but we are very conscious of barking and don't believe in letting prolonged barking happen. Yet we were warned about barking despite this and so were several other groups.

We have stayed at several other parks with same dogs, kids etc and specifically asked people around us if our dogs were too noisy as we are very conscious of little dogs, big voices. We have otherwise been welcomed and reassured that they weren't a problem.

So if you have a dog that barks be forewarned you may not be welcome, and this is a busy noisy park so nervous dogs may get a little barky at times. Other dog people get this, apparently not so those only with noisy kids shooting cap guns, honking bike horns and 6 AM Tim Horton runs despite no vehicle movement until 7 AM rules.

The campground was nicely kept, Washrooms were clean. Staff was very friendly. Very close to Avonlea, we actually rode our bikes there. The petting zoo was a hit with our children. The pool was clean.

We left Missouri September 11, and by the time we reached Atlantic Canada, many of the campgrounds were closing for the season, despite the fact that the tourist centers continued to promote Fall in the Atlantic Provinces. We visited the area in 2002 and didn't experience this problem because the economy was still good then and we stayed in hotels.

Cavendish KOA on Prince Edward Island was still open but preparing to close for the year. It was still beautifully green and lush on PEI, and the KOA gave us a nice, flat campsite with full hookups to park our RV. There are also small cabins to rent if you don't have an RV. We checked out the campground and it looked like a great place to stay in the summer months. Restrooms and shower rooms were spotless, there was a nice pool which was closed for the season, there is a petting zoo on the property, and they allow pets as long as you clean up after them. Quiet hours are between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. and strictly enforced. No starting up RV engines or generators, and no moving them about.

Cavendish KOA is a short drive to all the Anne of Green Gables sites as well as the PEI National Seashore. Fresh seafood is available everywhere on the island, and PEI is famous for it's bright red-shelled succulent lobsters.

The only negative, and this occurred everywhere we camped in Canada, was that the mosquitos and black flies were horrendous, especially at night. Black flies are usually gone by September, but Atlantic Canada has had a great deal of rain and several hurricanes which caused the mosquitos population to explode.

If you're planning to visit PEI next summer, you might want to give Cavendish KOA a try.

Room Tip: Visit the Atlantic Maritime Provinces in the summer months.

The Cavendish KOA is the perfect family campground on Prince Edward Island. It is very much a family oriented campground. We knew we'd come back again when, during our first year in the morning, the cart drove around announcing, "Kids Kamp...everybody come to Kids Kamp" and the kids followed like the Pied Piper's mice. Mr. Steve and Ms. Faye run a wonderful program in the A.M. for kids where there's art, play, sports, fun, and yet manners are expected and respect shown. They may be the best part. The sites are clean and there are sites for tents all the way to pull-throughs for big rigs. There are small and large cabins on site, too. There is a pool and playground, petting zoo, outdoor movies, chocolate bar bingo, the list goes on. The hay rides are a delight and I won't give away the surprise. The bouncy pillow keeps the kids occupied for a long time. The campground is perfect for families. I feel my children are perfectly safe to experience the independence of running around on their own. On the practical side there is a store, laundry, clean bathrooms, free showers, and an outdoor sink for doing dishes, which one may not appreciate until camping at a site without one. It is super conveniently located adjacent to one theme park and on the same street as many more. It is across the street and a few minutes to Cavendish Beach as well.
