New campground on private point on Sweets Bay, north of DeTour Village. Full hookups only, no bathrooms or showers available. Good electric and water hookups. Some sewer hookups allow Class As to pull head in for a view. Gated park at end of narrow road, reservations only as no turn around in front of the gate. Shallow bay but access to Saint Mary's River. Able to put our canoe in the water and follow the channel out. Two docks rebuilt so far. Boat ramp. Wonderful wildlife when we visited - bald eagles, sandhill cranes, snipe, swans nesting, deer, blue birds... Sites are mostly level with a view or with privacy. Our Verizon cell wouldn't work in Campground but understand AT&T does work. Was able to connect with Wi-Fi and cell in town and up the road on Sweets Point. (Deducted 1 point for that since we didn't know). Firewood on sale for $4 - self serve, a nice bundle. Hated to leave - want to go back.

A small basic campground in back of the gas station on Ocracoke Island. New manager is trying to clean up the campground. He is trying to control the free roaming dogs and feral cats in the area. A few 50 amp sites and most sites are for 35 foot or less. We get the E/W site and use the dump station a few times during our 2 week stay. In October, lots of surf fisherman were there - us included. We had no problems and it was very quiet. The bugs were not too bad until the last night but I hadn't sprayed around our area for a few days. We plan to stay here again next year.

4 full hook-up RV sites but small and close together. Our 32 foot MH was about as big as would easily fit. Hook-ups at back of site. Has dock on Caribou Lake and we heard good fishing. 4 miles west of the town of DeTour Village but a easy drive. No showers or bathrooms. Mainly for fishermen and small trailers. 1 site would only fit a pop-up or Roadtrek. I found out about it from the Chamber of Commerce - not in any books that I could find. I would stay again if level of site improved and no one was using the pop-up site. It was quiet - could hear loons - deer walked across lawn in am.

Fairly big park on Lake. Lake sites available. Electric and water hookups. When asked if the water was drinkable, the lady checking us in didn't know! It was not - there was a notice at the local gas station that covered the area. We had no problem getting into our site at 32 feet but not sure if big rigs could manage some turns. We didn't check out any of the facilities since we were only there 1 night. Gravel roads and many families. Would stay again if we needed to.

Nice RV park with many sites tucked into trees. A separate area for caravans and tents. Very clean laundry (4 washers, 4 dryers) and very clean washrooms. People very helpful. Location great for touring the northern area of Newfoundland. Wi-Fi works within range or you can sit in the laundry area at a desk. Verizon cell phone does not work here, but does work up at Fishing Point in St. Anthony: where you can complete your phone calls and watch whales. Has a dump station, however no sewer connections at the campsites. The gravel road is dusty, but that is the norm for campgrounds in Newfoundland.

20 serviced sites (E&W) in a gravel parking lot. But the pull thrus are separated by grass plots. Looks like they are trying to upgrade. Unserviced sites are in trees. Wi-Fi was new this year and sometimes worked. Have a small beach for kids on the pond. A handicapped boardwalk goes around the lake - a nice walk. City water and the dump station is on the way out at the city public works yard. Kids checking us in seemed to know what was important to us. Strange laundry in town - all sorts of machines take all sorts of coins but can get change at the dry cleaners attached to the laundry. Important directions - turn left at Church Road and follow the gravel road to the campground.

If you get site 6 or 7; the rating would be a 10! In a motorhome, pull head in to site 6 for the best view. Gravel parking lot on a bluff but with a view that is so very wonderful. Those in the front row are exposed to wind - not a bad thing if the bugs are out. No showers available. One washroom near the laundry (only 1 washer has plumbing lines but 2 dryers did a great job. All connections are at the back of the site so extra sewer hose might be needed. They do have a dump station. Narrow roads to get there and no place to really park to check in. The bakery nearby is reasonable and good. While there, we had a sewer line blockage (a rental unit had just left). Response time was quick. Would go back here in a heart beat!

Wonderful campground near everything in Twillingate. Turn left at the T intersection in town and follow the signs. Sites mostly level. Can be full during the town Food, Fish & Fun Festival but seem to accommodate people. Owners very helpful and pleasant. New Wi-Fi system works within range. Cash or check; no credit cards. Downside - gravel road is dusty.

Date of Stay:

Has everything we need - E/W/S and a nice site. Would have been a 10 if there were a few more feet between sites for the big rig slideouts next to us. WiFi works great. Close to town and all services. So early in the season, the restrooms and pool were not open yet. Neither was the petting zoo. Owners very nice and helpful.

Fancy RV park with mostly seasonals (100 sites for daily use). Very nice grounds, well kept. Concrete pads with grass. Nice pool. Rented a cable modem. Quiet park with a security gate controlled by a card. 2 laundries (don't use too much soap, water is soft) Sauble Beach is a long sandy beach. One area is available to drive (park) on so you can set up your beach chairs right in back of your car (or motorhome). Enjoyed this park.

Nice park for smaller units. Some sites on water have boat dockage. Pine section has electric for bigger units but some are not level (large boulders). Right off Rt. 400 (exit 162) so you hear traffic all night at the larger sites. Small dump station by office. 40 minutes to an hour to Parry Sound. Possible parasite from beavers in 6 mile lake so we didn't go swimming but others did (towel off briskly was recommended).

Date of Stay:

Electric only at one section of this campground. Most sites are 50x50 with bushes between sites. Need a long cord since you have to reach over 50 feet to the side of your site and a bit beyond. We went in parallel to road. Most other campers run on 15 amp cords. Picnic table and fire pit. Drive down steep camp road to nice beach on Lake Huron. Some low trees on road and sites. Dump station and water. Camp store is across the road - more like a small community store.

Date of Stay:

Part of the St. Lawrence Parks off the Long Sault Parkway (a series of islands on the Canada side of St. Lawrence). Must get permit at East Gate. Some sites not very level. Picnic table and fire ring. Small beach was posted when we were there due to rain and geese. Dump station sign said NO chemicals so we just dumped our grey water tank. Wish we had known about that when we got there. Has area to launch a small boat. Sites on the water have no hook-ups. Fills up on weekends.

Date of Stay:

Electric only in one section of the campground. Most sites large; some sites pull-thru but curved. Need long electric power cord to reach electric post that is out by road and between you and your neighbor. We went head in to reach power post and we had a long cord. Picnic table, fire ring at each site. Small beach reached from parking lot by boardwalk. Bike trails. Wood cost $6 a bag but nice hard wood. Nice bushes between sites; some sites have more trees. Water faucets thru park do not have threads. Has dump station and good water near there. Kids in office were very afraid we wouldn't fit in site at 32 feet.

Date of Stay:

This is in a city park. Campground is the older type with newer rigs trying to fit, many people have many cars at their site. If there is a vacant spot, it will be a camping site. Few big sites. Picnic table and fire ring (might be close to you or the next site). Stream runs past on one side and creek runs in middle. Has a nice restaurant in the Park and the pool looked nice. Can rent paddle boats or play miniature golf. Has caged pheasants and geese. Easy to get to dump station. Some walking and biking trails.
