I was there as a: Overnight RV'er, Family with children
This is our 5th year returning to Carson's, for the first 3 year there was never any issues but the last two years things seem to be changing. Last year we noticed a decline in maintenance and cleaning, but this year was the worst so far. We just spent a week, camping on the East side and the bathrooms were terribly dirty, every day. The shower floors don't look like they are ever cleaned (mildew), there was feces on one of the stall walls-for the entire week, and the floors didn't seem to get cleaned as much as they used to. The secure gate to the beach was broken the entire week and there were only two washing machines working out of 5. The site the last two years did not appear to have been cleaned before we arrived. The fire pits still have garbage in them and the site has litter from the last camper. When we began going to Carson's there were some older ladies that used to clean the bathrooms constantly and took a lot of pride in their work. The outdoor pool does not seem to be clean-always had a cloudiness to it. The rules say no golf carts but there are people with them-grandfathering should not be allowed. Not sure about next year, we do love the beach and the site are large but the campground needs some TLC.

Second time returning to this campsite. As a family with children, this campsite fits our needs with multiple swimming pools and so close to the beach, clean facilities and well maintained grounds. We returned back because it was so super quiet in the east campsite last year. Unfortunately, our experience this time round was less than stellar due to noisy campers next to us who were part of a larger multi campsite group who got together each night and made a ton of noise. They looked to be seasoned campers with their travel trailer and setup, so one would think that they would know how to read the rules of the campground, not really. Radio on all day outdoors and guitars and loud campfire singing well past quiet time (11pm). Front desk said they would take care of it and monitor/patrol for the following evening and we did see the golf cart patrol roll past a few times, but they did not enforce their own rules. (after 1am and still very loud conversations around the campsite)
Yes we do love the place and enjoy the peace and quiet, so maybe our expectations for fellow campers to adhere to the rules to allow everyone to enjoy the same respect would be nice, so we will not be returning next season unfortunately. Even our kids were not happy with the noise issue and it it kept them and us awake each evening.

This was our third year returning to Carson’s because of how amazing it was. Very clean spacious sites. We stay up by the indoor pool, back in sites. Like them the best. The pull through sites have no privacy at all. East side outdoor pool is very green and foggy. West side is beautiful. You can walk uptown in 20 minutes and to the beach in 5.
There is a shuttle to the beach but we won’t take it anymore as last year we waited to be picked up for over an hour. Finally we called the office and were told the bus driver went home early that day. So we had no way back with all our beach stuff. One of the staff members drive their own car and came and got us.
Will return next year.

Our 2nd stay with Carson's. Love the campground. Great for families. Beautiful clean sites - paved for the trailer, nice firepit, lots of room and private with hedges between most sites. Paved streets (all named) for biking, roller blading, etc. Our stay was during the fire ban (the entire county) so no fires during our stay, but we found things to do.
Definitely will be back. Only con - splash pad required parental supervision for our 9 year old (or a 16yr old). We have a 9 and 12 year old. We trust they can go to the splash pad as they can the park. The pool we understand. But they like their independence.

Always an excellent camping experience at Carsons Camp. The sites are well-maintained and just private enough to not feel like you’re even camping next to someone. Beautiful landscaping and excellent location. A+++

The best camping place so far! Very safe for kids to bike and walk. The fact that golf carts are no longer allowed makes the place very enjoyable and safe for the kids to roam around as they wish. The pool is a lot of fun and the covered playground is a go to no matter the weather. The place is very clean and well maintained. We had a blast!

Carson's camp in Sauble beach is the best campground of many we have stayed at. Collene leads the cleaning staff and does a remarkable job of ensuring the facilities are always kept very clean. The washrooms ( which are most important) are cleaned 4 times a day. Needless to say they are always super clean. All roads within the campground are paved and your trailer is parked on cement pads. The entire campground is very well maintained with a friendly staff.

This is one of those memorable camping experiences that the kids beg you to repeat!! The staff and owners go above and beyond to make it the best experience possible. Thank you!

We return to Carson's every year, one week in July and another in August.
This is one of our favorite places 'in the world' and we have been fortunate to travel to many wonderful locations throughout North America and the Caribbean.
The proximity to the beach and downtown Sauble is perfect.
The sites are a very comfortable size and well maintained.
The washrooms are great and regularly maintained/cleaned several times throughout the day.
The staff are always smiling and ready to share any information they can.

Very clean and well tended campsites and facilities. Very pleasant, knowledgeable and cooperative staff; it was always a pleasure to meet or work with them. Very comprehensive facilities; indoor and outdoor pools, etc. Inexpensive availability of propane and firewood on site.
They published an extensive list of programmed activities for seasonal residents, adults and children. We were not looking for these activities so I cannot comment directly however, there seemed to be happy laughing kids at the appropriate times and places.

We really enjoyed our stay at Carson's Camp...the place is spotless and staff is very friendly.
My two negative points would be as follows:
1) speed limit - I find for a campground 20 km/h is way too fast...in every campground we have done over the last 18 years, the maximum is between 8 and 10 km/h and that is fast enough, especially with lots of young children on sites.
2) laundromat - the fact that it is across the street and that there are only 4 washers/4 dryers for 700 camp sites

Carsons Camp was very well taken care of, many amenities- ie- laundry, indoor/outdoor pools,workout room, many garbage enclosures. 15 min walk to sauble... ( however you have to walk on shoulder of highway)
We stayed on the east side. nice spacious site with a great fire pit and shrub trees around. We were close to the zip line/play ground/ washrooms . They have a shuttle that will take you to the beach too. In front of us were many pull through sites- they however are open with no shade and privacy if that's your thing. I would suggest to take your bikes.
If i were going back to sauble YES ! I would stay at Carsons Camp again! It was nice, and clean and quiet. Not many people stayed up late for fires, or were up early..it was nice quiet stay. we enjoyed ourselves.

Spent the 2014 season at Carson's Camp. Was not disappointed. Staff are always friendly and helpful, keeping the park maintained at a high standard. It is a family focused camp ground. No late night partying will be tolerated. which suited our needs. Looking forward to the 2015 season.
Carson's is a very friendly and clean campground. We love the activities available and the friends we have made and spend at least 3 weeks during the summer monthes.
