We travel all over North America as a family and this is by far the worst experience we have ever had. If you check out my reviews you will see that I am extremely generous in my reviews. If I could give this place a zero I would. Here are our highlights from today: Arrived 40 minutes before check in...

Plus - clean well maintained campground. Plus - staff was friendly and flexible when we needed to slightly alter dates Plus - oceanfront ( but not the most scenic view) Minus - expensive. Not sure it is worth the oceanfront premium. These sites are popular. So you have better chance at having more space if you take a non ocean...

Expensive,we had to leave our campsite to receive internet & cell services, not compassionate charged 10.00 MORE for site when we had to spend an extra night due to motorhome problems. Would not recommend this campground.

My husband and I stayed here for almost 2 weeks during Aug/Sept of 2015. What a spectacular campground. Oceanfront campsite, very clean and quiet , with a heated pool and courteous staff. After reading the other reviews, I'm a bit stunned by what I've read. This place is pricey, but you get what you pay for and nothing should be...

I'm a bit conflicted on this review. I'll start with the good - we found the staff at first very friendly and the campground and the washrooms were extremely clean. We were happy with our oceanfront campsite, beautiful sunsets and being from Ontario, we thought the tide changes were really cool to watch. The office staff also took care of...

Be sure to read the entire website before booking! I booked by phone and the staff member did not mention their no refund policy on cancellations. When I had to cancel, the excuse was "well it's on our website". My credit card was charged $75 but when I was sent my credit voucher by mail (can be used within 1...

BEWARE!!!! If you book a site at this campground, and have to cancel they will NOT reimburse you. Personal issues came up and I had to cancel my reservation; I thought this would not be a big deal. I expected a small fee for cancelling, but no. The full price of the campsite was required- this was a $60 mistake....

It's a bit pricier but it's so clean and well kept and a lovely spot, it's definitely worth it. Was so relaxing last night and this morning. Bathrooms are impeccable as are the grounds. Many ocean view sites for campers and for tenters. Pics are the sunset view just feet from where our site was.

We we're charged a $10 booking fee, for calling the night before to reserve a campsite! No where else in our extensive travels, have we had this issue! I asked to have the $10 refunded, and was flatly refused!! They said it was stated on their website, which we didn't look at, it wasn't stated in Good Sam or Nova...

Aaah....the Cove. Looked great on-line but a bit sub-par in reality. First, let's talk price. There were some extra fees involved, bringing the cost of our two-night stay to somewhere around $120 for just one tent site with two adults and a child. The campsite itself was barren and windswept. In fact, my partner was forced to re-secure the tent...

“We chose the cheapest campsites, which were near the road, but traffic died down after dark, so we still had a good sleep. The campsites in the trees may be better in terms of noise, but I think were more expensive”
