  1. Jeannette and Doug Dixon

    We camped at Shamadon RV Resort one weekend in May 2018 and realized that this was an outstanding RV Resort, very clean and quiet. We pull a 33 ft. Revere and we had no problem with the sites being large enough and in no way did we feel like sardines. We checked on coming back for a few more weekends and were very lucky to get into some other very nice camp sites. After walking around the sites we noticed there were no bad sites to be found. There were things to do whenever you wanted to and my husband found that Saturdays at 1:00 were the horseshoe games, he enjoyed it so much and all the guys made him feel so welcomed that he looked forward to getting back as quick as we could.

    The staff will always greet you with a smiling face and helpful all the way through your stay. Patrick is the outstanding guy that makes sure you have everything you need and should you forget something, he will try to find it for you. Thank you Shamadon Staff for making our 2018 camping so rewarding. Can’t wait till May 2019 to begin.

    We are now proud owners of a seasonal site for 2019.
    See you soon, Doug and Jeannette Dixon


      Hello Doug & Jeannette.
      Thank you so much for the kind words and we would like to welcome you to our Shamadon seasonal family. See you in 2019!

    We held our family camping weekend and had the sites up on the hill, Love, Love this campground! From the exceptional friendly, helpful staff to the clean, safe facilities this park is 5 star all the way! Special side note to Crystal for helping me organize the event and Patrick for being the welcome wagon and looking after us all weekend! Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!

    We had the pleasure of spending 4 days at Shamadon RV Resort and it was terrific. We will definitely be back. A very clean, friendly and well maintained campground, one of the best we have visited. Mr. Personality is great, stopped by a few times a day just to see if we needed anything.
    See you in 2018.

  4. Corey Cullihall

    My family and I have camped several times at Shamadon. One of the best parks we have stayed at by far. We love it. It seems as if no expenses are spared when it comes to creating this great park and atmosphere. If every park had a Patrick, it would make them a better place.

    Can’t wait to come back again. Thank you.

  5. Don & Deb Thomas

    We really enjoyed our weekend at your campground everyone was so friendly and park was emaculant we really enjoyed the interaction with Patrick he not only is very friendly and made himself available when needed. We hope to be back soon have a great day Don and Deb Thomas

    Had such a great experience on the May24 weekend thought I’d drop you a line. Was extremely impressed with your parks maintenance team. That guy Patrick picked up our garbage every day. Saw him cleaning the bathrooms all the time. ( I used the shower 3 mornings) very, very clean, At least twice a day he would stop by our (every ) campsite to see if we needed anything. Your park is AWESOME. Can’t wait to come back.

  7. The King's

    Can’t believe it’s almost May long weekend. First choice to plan our fun is Shamadon. We will be pulling in early Friday. Get the fishing rods ready.

  8. Lynn & John

    Wow what a great stay we had!!!

    It was wonderful to stay in such clean and sweet accommodations and park.

    We were so impressed by the whole cabin with it’s own 2pc bathroom, sleeping quarters with double bed and bunks. The little kitchenette with a sink, microwave, bar fridge, even a dish drying rack and dish detergent. The table inside with built in radiant heater (could use a blower) and stools were a great addition. Loved the great BBQ sitting out front to use with own picnic table and then the covered porch and two lawn chairs which we used. It was even well thought out to provide us with a broom to help keep the leaves out. It would have been a great addition to have a mirror and some hooks to hang up things.

    The whole park was so clean and well thought out and we travelled every inch we could with our dog and friends. Even a visit to different washrooms throughout park including the cool port a potties was very nice and always clean.

    My guy was trying hard to compete, with only a couple of hours, to catch the most fish, but they kept him at a distance and the record still stands with a permanent resident, who has been there most of the summer.

    We would also like to Thank you and your staff for the firewood which was well used during the cool temperatures.

    Yes, we will gladly recommend to friends and will do again sometime, renting a cabin instead of tent camping with this fabulous option available.

    My husband and I have stayed here three times this summer and it is one of the best family campgrounds that we have stayed at. When looking on their site you may say to yourself that is a little pricey but they give you a free bag of wood for each night stay and free wifi there is a nice big dog run, a pond for fishing. If you are like us and your dogs love water they can swim. The staff is so friendly and helpful, and there is Patrick he is awesome, so friendly and very helpful…we will coming again next summer and hoping to bring our kids and grandkids with us……

  10. Ken Cunningham

    This is one of the best or the best RV Resort we have stayed in Canada. We are Canadian and travel to the south in the winter , I would compare this Resort to any premium site that you can get there. The only thing that might be lacking are some of the amenities e.g. shuffleboard etc. The sites are premium and so is the service . We will be staying again.

  11. Teresa Carnochan

    Shamadon resort it’s like the best place on earth. The camp sites are all cement pads and very level. They have a super fantastic gated dog run. You are allowed 6 people on your lot any age. The kids play ground is fantastic and they have a jumpy pillow that not only do the kids love but so do I. The 2 ladies in the office are very friendly and helpful. Sat mornings they have free coffee and cookies. The sandy beach and the pool are beautiful. Bathrooms are very clean. For every night you stay you get a free bag of wood which is good. There is enough wood in each bag for a fire every night you are there. I have been here 3 times this year and it has been great. I tell every one about you guys cause you are something to brag about. Last but not least Patrick is the man! He will help you any time, waves and smiles as he passes anything you ask he does for ya. Truly a great spirit can’t beat that. See you guys soon again.

  12. Pete & Jan

    We just felt the need to comment on our summer. We travel but fell in love with Shamadon in the middle of the summer and just couldn’t leave after our first visit for a weekend. We have been back every weekend since. We are in the service business and will only comment when it has exceeded expectations. It did…Wow
    Entry into the park with a gift bag and a huge welcome was unexpected at the gate. The drive down to the park was incredible with the space/ animal statues….That just welcome you in. Our camp site clean, loaded with firewood and a view to kill for nature. We arrived and was told that we would meet Patrick when we arrived and would visit our site… He did and has been unbelievable with customer service and a real care for the park.
    We laugh this guy knows everybody’s names whether seasonal or stopped by for the weekend.

    I would like to brag at the end that I did catch 7 Rainbow Trout in one day barbless in the Lake. Great day.. Thank you Stephan and Minnie for having us in your park.

  13. Dustin Kerwin Alaina Eveson

    This is the best camp ground/ RV site ever!!! Very very clean, super friendly campers, and the staff is awesome!! Came once and was so impressed we booked another weekend the night we left. Patrick the grounds keeper is amazing, he keeps the sites clean, he is friendly, and he makes sure every morning that you need for nothing… This is by far a 10 out of 10. Thank you shamadon and especially patrick

  14. Susan Wilson

    We would just like to say thank you to Shamadon Resort for such a wonderful camping experience! From the time I spoke to Crystal on the phone to book our campsite (83) to the day we left we felt so welcomed & were well informed of everything there was to see & do! Thank you Patrick for bringing us wood & for keeping the park so clean & well groomed! Our 3 grandchildren ages 6, 7, & 8 had so much fun & asked if we could please get a seasonal campsite!They loved the Shamadon jumper & of course the pool, beach & the playground! They even got to feed the koi!
    We also had the pleasure of meeting the owner Steve. We told him we would be sure to return to his campground as we loved how spacious and spread out the campsites are! The design of the campground is like no other we have stayed at!

    Fabulous camp ground. Spent two days camping with family. From check in to check out, the staff was very helpful and informative. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the washrooms. The grandchildren enjoyed all the amenities off the park from the clean sandy beach to the playground. Patrick always met us with a handshake and smile. Very thoughtful towards his guests making sure they didn’t want for nothing. Definitely will return.

  16. Vicki

    We just came back from a two night stay at Shamadon and had a great time. Our kids played on the hill and on the Shamadon jumper while we relaxed. The facilities were super clean and Patrick was awesome. We had some power issues and Patrick came to the rescue and fixed our problem while also making us laugh. Can’t wait to come back!

  17. Laura Good

    I just want to say that Shamadon is a wonderful campground. Peaceful and the management is wonderful. Thank you to Patrick and Don for the warm hospitality. Great dog park. Could not ask for a better campground.

  18. Donna Teal

    Just spent 3 days in your resort. Loved it ,lots to do for every age group.Showers were great , the cleanliness of the whole place pleased me . Thank -you for a great time.

  19. Craig Singh

    We’re currently staying in site 136 and have been quite impressed with the campground. Everything is extremely clean and they have tons for the kids to do. I’m amazed by the friendliness of Patrick as he’s been so great and helpful to our whole family. He made sure we knew everything that was going on during our stay and came over several times to ensure we were enjoying our stay. He’s a testament to great customer service.

  20. Tammy Seeley

    I believe people are always fast to criticize but seldom praise.

    We are currently camping on site 73 as I write you. The view is breathtaking and the camp is amazing. From the first second inside the office on Friday night myself and my little girl were treated with enthusiasm. The lady made us feel like she cared and was happy to have us here. I can honestly say that that experience alone is a rarity. The camp site is outstandingly clean and well maintained as with the entire park as we have toured around. The statue animals have caught me off guard more than once which makes Kasey laugh her head off at me. This morning Pat let the kids feed the gold fish. I think that is a terrific experience that Kasey will not forget. We have spent the rest of the day literary going from the play centre to the pool and back again. Did I mention that we love Pat. He made Kasey and me feel right home saying anything he could help with just let him know. He waves everytime he passes. Oh ya and he smiles. Again another rarity these days. Very seldom do you find people working with the public that actually belong there and make it obvious that they love their jobs. Great hiring skills to find Pat AND be able to keep him.

    So much for just dropping you a line this Saturday evening lol.

    In final I can sum it all up with beautiful, simple and natural.

    Thank you soooooo much

    Tammy Seeley

    We WILL be returning and spreading the word about your jewel in the rough

  21. Doug and Brenda Parsons

    Just a note from two travellers whom just recently had the pleasure of staying at your resort. Positively wonderful stay. Staff very welcoming and kind. Loved the added touches, such as free firewood, gift bag, free wifi. Grounds are very well groomed, clean, simply lovely to walk around. Many added attractions, were educational and fun.
    May we say a special Thank-you to a staff member (Patrick). Very personable person, with lots of history of the camp grounds to share. This man was so very kind and made the stay sooo comfortable.

    Cheers to all, God willing we will return for a longer stay. One can be sure that we will tell our friends back home about Shamadon, a hidden splendour.

    Sincerely. Doug and Brenda Parsons. Ottawa Ont.

Lot 109

  24. Marjorie and Calvin

    We had a wonderful peaceful stay at Shamodon Resort. One of the nicest, cleanest, resorts we have stayed at.
    Sites are well kept and designed. Price is very resonable, firewood $ 5.00 a night as much as you need. You can’t beat that!
    Garbage pickup. . Free Tim’s coffee and cookies on Saturday for us to help ourselves to, was a welcoming treat. Shamadon is truly a Resort. Employees and owners are customer oriented very hospitable. We had a quite pleasant stay.
    We will return next year and likely yearly.
    For us this is a three *** star and we have no four **** stars yet. A MUST VISIT!

  26. John Allen

    Simply Amazing, 15 minutes into our visit my wife and I fell in love with this camp ground, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the resort is immaculately clean. the thoughts and small things are what makes the difference here, the website is amazing and interactive, you can see the individual sites, I can honestly say this is the first campground that I wanted to stay at permanently.

  27. Doug and Sharon O'Loughlin

    Dear Sham family:

    We just wanted to let you know that we had a lovely time at your great resort. We just arrived home and we had to let you know that you have a beautiful place. We loved it!!! We cannot wait to return. We camped in “Buddy #57” site with our Daughter & Son-in-law and our 2 graddaughters on Aug 11- 13th. We have been camping for years and your Resort is by far the nicest one we have stayed at in Canada! It is clean, quiet and your amenities are top rate! Thank you and we will be seeing you again for sure. Great job!

  31. Vicki and Chris Jackson

    We stayed at Shamadon site #18 this past weekend Aug 17.
    What a fabulous park and a great story behind it..
    The grounds are imaculate, the facilities clean and modern and each site has the best of equipment, concrete pads, new electric and water hook-ups, and very private with tons of trees.
    The lake is beautiful and the trails are great for dog walking.
    We wish you the best of luck and look forward to returning next year to this beautiful, well cared for park.
    We will for sure tell our friends to visit too.
    Thanks for a great stay – Vicki and Chris Jackson

  32. Danny & Lynne Pickersgill

    What a fabulous week-end we had at your resort on the Canada Day week-end. We couldn’t leave without booking again. A wonderful well run, relaxing and immaculately clean place. 2 thumbs up for a lovely family-run fabulous campsite.

  35. The Browns

    We have just spent the last weekend at your campground. Just wanted to let you know it was a great experience. So clean and quiet. We will back. Great weekend. Thanks

  36. Robin and Trinity

    We are so looking forward to spending this first season at Shamadon and many more to come, I’m sure. From all the places we scouted for a seasonal spot, we can’t stress enough what beautiful place Shamadon is, for many obvious reasons particularly the hosts, but for many other reasons, too many to mention. We will definitely recommend Shamadon to everyone we know and do recommend staying at Shamadon to anyone else out there.


    Trinity and Robin

  37. Mark & Victoria McCutcheon

    My wife and I just spent a weekend (June 3,4,5) at your resort. We had the pleasure staying at camp site #18 and had a wonderful time. Your resort is perfect for us, not too busy, very quite and very clean. Just like your slogan says “Nothing Fancy Just Nature” During our stay we walked around and met other campers who were very friendly. We scouted around looking at other camp sites to possibly camp for a week sometime in August.

    We will be recommending your resort to our friends. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful resort and hope to see you soon.
    Mark & Victoria

  38. The Brown Family

    Just wanted to drop you a line and say how great of a stay we had this past weekend! The park was clean, quiet and the entire family had a great time!
    Keep up the good work and we are sure to see you again in the future.
