Just stopped while driving up Cape Breton and enjoyed the quiet moment at this PP. We didn't go in past the entrance gate to the campground, so I dont have a lot to offer. But it is in a very beautiful and quiet location.

Very serene and quiet place to visit over the beautiful oceans. Great picnic spot for families. There are better swimming area elsewhere though (ex. Point Michaud Beach)

One of our favourite campgrounds ever! Our perfect campsite is peaceful, scenic, private, away from highway noise and suitable for tents. Battery PP gave all of that with an incredible view as a bonus! Most of the sites we saw were good, with several that...More
