We visited this campground in August with our two teenage boys. The website gave us hopes of a beautiful spot with lots to do. The website looks wonderful, so good job on putting that together. Unfortunately it was completely misleading.
The campground is very run down. We were placed on a terrible site in the middle of nowhere, but close to the entrance. We felt the owners wanted to keep an eye on us, and that didn't feel so great right off the bat.
The "great" trails that the website boasted of, led us into private property where we were reprimanded for by the actual owner of that property. The other trails were very short and blocked in many spots so we couldn't go down them. Perhaps they led onto private property as well. Nonetheless, there were no trails to speak of.
The mini-golf looked very old and unkempt, and it was going to cost us $4 p/person to play one round. Not worth it, after we spent a lot of money to come in the first place.
There were beautiful waterfalls that we tried to see, but no one in the area had ever heard of them, so we didn't see that either.
The pool boasted wonderful things as well, and was open from 4-9 (the website said) but as soon as we arrived at 6:30, a sign appeared on the door that said it would be closed at 7.
The other fun activities in the area were far away and extremely expensive.
We had booked for 4 days, but left after one night. We understand the policy for campgrounds not refunding, but felt the owner of the campground was very rude and not understanding of us. He made us feel bad for voicing our complaints, and sent us away feeling like we were the ones in the wrong. We received no compensation for our disappointment. And not even an "I'm sorry,or is there anything i can do to convince you to stay?" He seemed very angry at us, and couldn't wait for us to leave.
Poor customer service to say the least.
We will not be back, and hope that this review will give you a true picture of what you will experience at Algonquin Trails.
