Lovely helpful host who did everything in her power to make our stay wonderful. Prices at the kiosk are very reasonable and the toilets and park grounds very clean. We swam in the river with our dog Chokito and made campfire. What a lovely relaxed stay. Thanks for looking after us.

We booked an unpowered site by the river but no mention of it being a sloped site.
When I asked Christine she said "You folks just want everything".

Very cramped camping area, had to pay an extra $15 to move away to another spot which was still in close proximity of other campers.
FROM HOST: This camper stay in September (not long weekend). We tried out best to accommodate him.

Unfortunately we did not have a pleasant experience at this camp ground. When we arrived the host was not helpful and we were told our camp spot we paid for was already taken. There was an additional fee to launch your boat and on top of this there was a festival on down the river. No peace, we left

Didn’t have a good experience here. When first arriving our camp site was not available and there were additional fees to launch our boat. There was also a festival down the river that was so loud we got up and left. No peace and quiet this weekend. We won’t come back

We really enjoyed our weekend at Ski Gardens. We camped by the river with beautiful views and the fire pits were great to keep us warm. Really lovely site and will definitely be back :-)

My husband and l spent two glorious nights here. Fully flushing toilets and lovely hot showers. We camped on the grassed area which was level. We could have camped by the waters edge but preferred the grass. Lovely and quite, just birdsong. My husband swam in the river with our little dog.
