Excellent campground. We used it as a base for a week to tour Cape Breton. Very easy to find right on the Trans-Canada Highway. It filled up quickly over the weekend, so reservations would be a good idea. Internet access is reliable. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Electric, water and sewer are located midway along the length of the sites, which make hooking up convenient without the need for extensions. We would stay here again.

As noted in other reviews, this is a very nice campground. The entrance is about 200 feet past the Citgo station on the left in case your GPS doesn't like the address. Also as noted, the campground is tight for a large 5er, but they escort you to the site. We had no problems with 59' overall length. We were just here for an overnight stop, but we would stay here again when we visit the area for a longer stay. A tip for big rigs: If you want to get fuel at the Citgo, they have a fire suppression system over the island with the diesel pump, and very little overhead clearance on the road side (north). If your fuel filler cap is on the driver's side, you may want to pull into the station at the second entrance (west) and swing back under the canopy.

Well maintained campground in a beautiful setting just a short drive from Algonquin Park. The sites are large in mature pines. Easy pull-through site for a 36' 5er. We stayed for 5 nights through the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend in October 2010. Strict rules are enforced, but none of them are unreasonable. To us, that's a benefit, not a detraction. They celebrated an early Halloween for the kids with pumpkin carving contests, coin searches in the hay tent and trick-or-treat after dark. We arrived during daylight, but we heard from others it was difficult to spot the CG entrance in the dark. There's no propane refill at the CG, but there is a refill facility within 1/2 a km across the highway. We would definitely stay here again.

All the previous reviews are accurate, unfortunately. This CG serves a niche market as a local "summer cottage" community. It has the feel of an aging mobile home park. We stayed here late in the season for a few nights while prepping our unit for winter storage, because it was one of the few still open. At that time of year, the only other rigs that were "road legal" were with us in "the field." All were contractors working on a project at a local power station. They were all friendly and very helpful, but had different priorities than retired RVers. The owners were fair to us, and promptly credited us for an overpayment. To be fair, this CG worked for what we needed, but we would not recommend it to anyone expecting a pleasurable camping experience.
