This was our first campground in Nova Scotia and we loved it. Small, friendly, big sites. There is a lovely walking trail that leads you down to the water very well-maintained. It’s definitely a good place to stop when you’re driving from Ontario to Nova...More

We stayed here for one night in September 2018. This family-friendly campground is very pretty and the sites, though not big, are adequate. Our pull through site was not really a pull through, but with a bit of jockeying we did manage an easy entry...More

I feel like maybe this camp is good at not-so-hot a time or some sort of thing... I know other folks loved it. That said, we were SWARMED, and I mean swarmed with black flies, it was horrible. I've never even experienced anything like it...More

I was only there to pick up a friend enroute to another outing. I was AMAZED at the location. Tons of spaces. Lots of trees. Very nice camp spots.

We really enjoyed the campground and the short walk to the red sand shore -- Spectacular at low tide! All the campsites are shaded with pine trees. Those on the outer ring are more private. Mostly tents and a few trailers. We would come again!
