You can set up your camper right on the beach. Beautiful beaches to walk on, visit the lighthouse, check out the beach cafe, or go to the small shop of Sun Moon and Stars to check out some local artists work.

I enjoyed my stay at the Old Shipyard Beach Campground. Noreen and Bob Kimber were extremely hospitable. We enjoyed our bond fire and lobster on the beach after a long day of beach combing. Thank you Bob and Noreen. We will be back next year....More

Quaint little beach with camping park and restaurant. Has a gift shop near by as well as a lighthouse. Home of The Mary Celeste. Very interesting area.

Special sites right on the edge of the water at high tide. Beautiful view of the Bay of Funday. Fascinating to watch the 40' tide change. Renovated Lighthouse/Museum very interesting and well-done. Bobby and Noreen delightful and knowledgeable hosts. So glad we went there first!

Beautiful views:) great walk with dogs. Would be hard to access with wheelchair. Has a few Geo Cash's. Easy finds! Would be a great place for repelling but is not equipped.

I really don't want to tell you about Spencer's Island! It was my father's birthplace and where his one remaining brother still lives. They have T.H.E. Best deep fried clam strips and one of the few places in the world where orange pineapple ice cream...More
