This campground is conveniently situated at the south end of Ottawa on a major road that leads to the downtown core. It has acceptable grass back-in sites and some pull-throughs, and certainly has potential. But overall, I feel that the current Good Sam rating is significantly overstated. There is highway noise at times, the showers are poor (bad ventilation, phone booth sized stalls, sloped floors that don't drain properly so you are standing in a pool of stagnant water). The laundry is in a shabby looking building; it was also expensive and had a burned out ceiling light. We reported this and the owner's reply was "he doesn't want people doing their laundry in the evening anyway". The light never was repaired in the time we were there (several days). From our time of arrival until our departure the owner seemed tired, unhappy and uninterested in any improvement suggestions. Unfortunately, based on the above comments, we would not return to this campground any time soon.

The place has to many faults:
Part of the campground serves as a deposit for materials and heavy equipment and is full of garbage and leftovers of constructions. It has several barns full of trash. Having the appeal of a junk yard.
The green areas are very overgrown, they don't cut the grass often enough, and the crap Appel orchids are abandoned, and therefore with garbage from previous campers that seems that just accumulated there over time.
There are piles of gravel, sand, debris and soil, all over the place.
There a lot of surrounding noise from the road and it is located within an industrial area.
I wife went to walk the cat last night and on her walk the cat cut a mouse even though she walks the cat on a leash.

The best thing this campground has to offer is easy to find if you are visiting Ottowa, since bank street will put you in downtown directly with zero difficulty as well as for shopping for foods, Walmart, Canadian Tire, banks, restaurants, etc.

Mostly all the things that are not well in the campground is to a poor management, I write in hope that they do something about it, so other camper have in the future a better experience than mine. Thanks.

My husband & I were very disappointed in the showers. There were several issues which confirmed for us that the Good Sam ratings (which are usually more accurate) were deceiving. There was absolutely no ventilation, no place in the shower stall itself to set one's shampoo/conditioner or soap except on the floor. There was only 1 hook to hang towel & clothing & in one of the showers the hook was broken off. There was a very small shelf which was inadequate to place toiletry bag/container etc. No waste basket & the shower curtain, which normally provides a barrier to prevent the water from showering into the area where towel/clothing is, was not wide enough to fully cover the area separating the bathing area from the changing area. Very confined space & lastly, we have been on the road for nearly 3 weeks staying in other campgrounds & never once paid for shower facilities. The other inconvenience was that the bathrooms which are located in another area altogether were also not ventilated, short of propping the main entry door open with the concrete brick which lay on the floor. Also no reasonable surfaces available for setting one's toiletries down while washing hands. Very frustrating.
