Rate is Canadian $. Choose a site without service. Good size site. Camping is very quiet. Dumping station is free and no waiting. 45 minutes from downtown Ottawa. Two beaches (no life guard) available in the camping. - Stukely

First time there. Easy to book on line and pick your site, you can prepay. Park Store, two hiking trails, paved main access roads. Power hook up on most sites. No water hook ups but free fill station and dump station on the park. Variety of taps around the park to fill buckets and things. Frustration reaching power supply and fitting our 17-foot trailer into some spaces. Late check out. Long wait for dump station, took us an hour to get our turn; last day of long weekend, most likely why. No site the same so revisit in the future. Village has beer/wine/pizza at the corner store. And they do deliver to your trailer! - The Allens

A gem of a private park on White Lake in the Pakenham hills. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the park was quiet and family-friendly. There's an excellent salt water swimming pool for cooling off and during our stay there was a fair with lots of attractions and plenty of free food. We recommend this park. We'll be back. - JD and Beastlet

Very nice wooded campground that is located several miles from traffic. Good gravel interior roads. The 30 amp electricity was ok with only a slight voltage drop. Majority of the sites were filled with seasonals. Campground located about six miles from shopping and fuel stops. - corky506

The park was manly seasonals in the trailer area but with a good number of short-stayers including ourselves. We stayed 12 nights while we toured the area. Quiet time after 11 was impeccably observed even on the August long weekend when every site was taken and loads of kids were around. Would stay here again. Staff were very helpful; my only complaint - as in so many sites - is that the wifi is incredibly bad. Nothing reached my site and even down by the office it took 30 minutes to upload a few pictures to Facebook. Surely it's about time to invest in some repeater stations around the park. Why do so many parks advertise Wifi and then not provide anything usable? Maybe KOA needs to set some kind of minimum standard that meets modern expectations. - Chris_m

The parking area at the stop sign doesn't allow any room for other traffic, so I had to park in front of other vehicles near the office. Friendly staff in the office. Laundry, store, washrooms, and rec room in same building. Our site was a grass, level back-in. The water was shared, so the line had to be run under our rig. Electric was from a connection on an adjacent cabin. Bushes next to the cabin got in the way of connecting to the power and sewer. At first I only saw a couple of 15 amp plug-ins, but found the 30 amp around the corner. Sewer was an unthreaded pipe, so I had to use a donut for a tight seal. Unfortunately, our neighbour's sewer outlet was less than 10 ft from our door and not sealed. This is an older KOA that needs updating. All utilities worked fine. The grass around the site needed watering as it was looking pretty brown. No privacy between sites in our section. The better, more private full hookup sites that had some trees seemed to be for longer term stays. Due to the extreme fire hazard, there was a campfire ban in effect. Found 3 OTA TV stations, 1 English and 2 French. All had a good, strong signal and were in HD. The Wi-Fi I was told to connect to was so weak, it would not connect to the internet. There were two other open channels and I was able to connect to one of them, but again the lack of bandwidth caused problems with speed and just staying on. The park rents out boats and has a driving range. The mini-golf course is free and includes the rental of a club and ball. We didn't use the laundry, but washers are 1 loonie and 1 twoonie and the dryers are $.25 for 8 minutes. If ever in the area again, I might search for another place to stay that has more updated hookups and more privacy. - Onemoretrail

Lots of seasonals here. They pretty much take over the beach on the weekends. Might be quieter during weekdays but otherwise keep it to one night. It's conveniently close to the highway. The pamphlet they give you is outdated. Wood is $10 for 15 pieces and they don't rent kayaks. For staff, it seems that there are a couple of young people running it (doing a great job though). - spanielrage

One of the most pleasant parks we have stayed in. The owners were pleasant and courteous, and made us feel most welcome. It certainly lived up to its name, as we found it it quiet and restful. We liked the location, as it was an easy drive to downtown Ottawa, and the nearby town of Carleton Place had plenty of grocery choices, as well as some big-box stores. Every other visitor we met had the same opinions, especially those seasonal residents who made it their summer home. We would certainly stay again, and would heartily recommend this campground. - Fred Priebe

This is the worst campground I have ever been to. The owners are a miserable old couple that care only about money. Firewood must be bought through the campground supplier and they take a piece. Or you can buy wood from them for 6$ a milk crate. 1 bathroom located at the entrance. Coin operated shower. Honey wagon that you must use to pump out your black tank. No store, no canteen, no recreation room, no free wifi, no reliable wifi,dogs must be leashed at all times. Electricity is nowhere close to 30 amps. Roads are grass so when it rains the campground won't allow your vehicle in, not even to drop off elderly or handicapped people. There are 3 full pages of rules and the owners are constantly checking and harassing you if they don't approve. All "ground coverage" including camping matts must be first approved by owners. Make sure you have excellent trailer insurance because if any happens to your trailer, even if it is the campground's fault it will be your responsibility to pay for. There is very little for kids to do. There are no trails. You must pay for any watercraft you bring in (canoes, kayaks, small boats with trolling motors) no dock space is allowed ever, except for the owner's boat, boat "launch" is poor and not accessible when it rains. No garbage facilities, campers have to take it with them. No music outside your trailer and inside noise must not be heard outside. When it's hot and the under powered electrical blows the breaker you must call the owners and wait. Also be prepared for the owner to tell you that it's too hot to camp and to go home. Also when the campground fries your trailer digging and hitting their own power lines, they will deny any wrong doing and tell you to rebook your vacation. Small slippery beach area. A manual gate that you must open and close each time you pass regardless of time of day or weather. If you love camping do not stay here or you will hate camping by the time you leave. - Jay Flight

This park is certainly tranquil, with shady trees, however it is not much of a park. In addition to the rate of $45.00 they charge $5.00 for Wi-Fi which barely allows you to download email, they charge for showers, and have no laundry facilities. The park is mainly full timers. Grass parking bays and no real facilities other than the basics. We stayed here 3 nights. - TommBoyd

Had occasion to visit the park in May, as well as in July. Advice to other campers please do not write a bad review about the park as, if you do, I promise you will get banned. If you write something negative on their facebook site, it gets immediately deleted. Was nice to see basketball lines painted on the court. The hours that the café is open has improved. The roads remain rough so go slow. The beach remains neglected as not too sure how often it gets cleaned but however often, its not enough. The smell of dead fish still remains. The ownership attitude still has not changed. Such a shame for anyone desiring tranquil time. Apparently the flogging will continue until the ownership attitude changes. - Living our Dream

We have stayed at this park for 8 years. The people that stay at the park are amazing. The site sizes are good. The owners and people that work at the resort do not know how to treat customers. Be careful that you do not prepay for anything in the park as you are not getting any refund. Visitors pay extra and are restricted to amount of time allowed to visit. Even family are considered visitors. You have to pay extra for the pool as well for your visitors. Children need to be supervised under 12 years of age but if you don't want to swim you still have to pay the fee to be a supervisor. There is no bathroom close to the pool so you question where people go. The beach water is unusable and the beach and shoreline is dirty with dead fish. The shoreline is rarely cleaned so the area smells. The restaurant opening hours are not consistent. We had overcooked food on numerous occasions. The public bathrooms where not cleaned regularly. If you needed to report anything to staff you had to make an appointment. The main maintenance worker was constantly not available. It could be a wonderful park if the owners where different or changed. The area and people who stay there are fantastic. - Lovin_Summer

This is our 3rd season at this resort on the East Shore of Mississippi Lake, just 2 miles outside of Carleton Place and less than an hour from downtown Ottawa. Let me start with the positives. The campers at the resort are amazingly friendly as we were quickly welcomed, followed by many occasions of birthday parties, boat cruises, happy hours and morning coffee chats, while enjoying the lake views.
The pool is salt water and kept clear at this gated resort that offers key to all seasonal campers. Park has great facilities and events for kids to play and enjoy as most campers feel comfortable allowing children to go out on their own to play. Three weekends in the summer the park brings in a local band for music and dance. While park offers free wifi, since we arrived it's so unreliable. The distance the washrooms are from the pool (approximately 500ft) always bring into question how often the kids just use the pool as their washroom facility and the reason we stopped using the pool.
Unfortunately the family that currently operates this resort is going through a family crisis with the parents in the middle of a pending divorce that's dragged into the mess, 2 adult children and two grandchildren. This has moved their focus off maintaining a clean beach, keeping bird mess of docks, and general timely clean-up. Park neglect would be the simplest term to describe its facilities and we can go days without seeing someone working here. Owners seem to be making emotional decisions versus operating the facility as a business. Customer service seems forgotten as owners prefer to antagonize campers! Campers placing their name in a move cue get ignored.
The resort used to have a café open from 9 to 9 with ample servings. Now it might open at 9:30 or later, and have noticed it closed as early as 5:30 pm. In any event, be prepared for slow service when it is open and warn your visitors that come into the park, when they go into the restaurant to register. - Living our Dream

My husband and I spent three nights at Wesley Clover. We wanted to visit Ottawa, and this seemed like a good spot. We were in a pull thru site, which was in a newer section of the campground. Basically it's an open field with no privacy. Wish we'd driven thru the campground before deciding on a pull thru. The back in sites have lots of privacy and trees between sites. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the very loud noise from the highway it's right next to. Noise is 24/7, doesn't make for a good nights sleep! The girl in the office who checked us in seemed bored, like she was doing us a huge favor for letting us stay there. - fly girl

Stayed for a week to visit and play tourist. Lovely park but bad mosquitoes this time. Power and water at the rear of our site, no sewer onsite but dump station easily accessible on the way in or out. Constant drone from 417 Hwy which generally subsided for quiet sleeping at night. Staff on duty at most hours, agree the young lads on the maintenance carts could slow down and they need speed limit signs in the park for the rest of the crowd that is always there. Make sure you have reservations before you show up! - JohnJo

Great wooded and shaded sites!! Quiet and lots of room on the site and between sites. However NO sewer, NO wifi, NO 50 amp and LOTS of mosquitos. Will stay again even with the lack of some items. - Jdon
