Good level sites and good hookups. Sites are pull-through but on the narrow side. Some small trees and they don't present an issue. We stayed one night. Friendly and helpful staff. It is a ways from I-35 to the campground. Internet access is less than desirable with being unable to connect. I finally gave up working on it. It is good for an overnight stay if ones doesn't mind driving the six miles from the interstate.

Date of Stay:

The internal roads are very good. No pot holes. Ample room to access the sites. We had a pull through which was level. The water pressure was excellent. Internet signal was strong and the access was fast. The owner was friendly and showed us the site before we even paid. The location is very convenient to the downtown area (can walk to it) and the Fort Louisbourg is very close. We would stay there again.

We camped in this park for three nights. This park like most of the campgrounds in the area has many pot holes in the park. We had a pull through site which was a level crushed rock site. The water pressure and power appeared to be okay. There appears to be many permanent residents. The campground is a little difficult to find so if going there be sure to look for the very little blue camper signs on roadside posts. The Internet was pretty fast but a weak signal, and the connect was dropped many times. The person at the motel desk, where one checks in was friendly. The sites are very close together but acceptable for a limited stay. I would stay there again when in the area.

This is a large campground, but only a few of the sites have sewer hookups. The wide and long crushed rock sites were level. The water pressure and electric power was good. You do have to share the water connection with the site next to you. This is a cash only campground. The Internet available up by the office was pretty fast, but they charge for that as they did for showers. The laundry facilities were limited with only two washing machines and two dryers. There were another set of two but they were behind the office and their availability coincided with the office hours. Most, but not all, of the sites are wooded. Matter of fact because of the constant strong winds a pine tree blew over onto the RV next to us causing some damage to the unit. The internal roads have many pot holes filled with water from rain. While we were there two different caravan groups arrived taking over the park. However, I would stay there again when in the area because of the very limited number of campgrounds in the area.

A really nice park with wide back in sites that are level. We stayed there a week and would return when in the area. The theaters are within walking distance which is really convenient. The campground is fairly easy to fine. One draw back is they don't have laundry facilities, but there are some in the town. The Internet access is on the very weak side unless one goes up by the office. Again, we really like this campground.

This park is about 10 miles from St. Anthony. We camped there five nights and it was okay. The Internet was only available at the office and it was painfully slow. The interior roads were full of pot holes filled with water from the rain. The sites were not level. There are many, many permanent residents resulting in about 12 sites really being available for camping. There is a large camping area for caravans and those sites are held for them. While we were there a large bull moose wondered into the camp one evening. If I was in the area again, I would stay there only because it really is the only campground in the area.

The manager was quick to get us registered, then he took us to our pull through site. He was friendly and he talked about fishing the lake as well as the Sherbrooke Village. The camp site was pretty level and the water connection was good. We did have an on going power problem with the post circuit breaker continuing to trip. I talked to the manager and he checked it over, then offered us a different power post for our connection. However I didn't have a power cord long enough and I didn't want to move our rig, so we just stayed in our original site. I had to reset the tripped breaker several times, the last time was about 10:30 after we had gone to bed. I am convinced there was a faulty circuit breaker that needed to be replaced. The internal roads were good and wide except the entrance to the park. That road was narrow and one would have to backup if one met another vehicle on that strip of the road. We camped here one night and would have to give a lot of consideration to staying again should we be in the area, because of the power problem.

The staff is friendly and were quick to get us registered. The site we had was a pull through and it was nice but it hadn't been cleaned or checked from the previous camper. There were cans and other debris on the camp side. The power and water connections were good. The site was shaded and felt private even though there were many campers around. The internal roads were good and easy to maneuver. The laundry facilities were sub standard. The swimming pool was very nice even though we didn't use it. The campground is a good location for visiting Halifax. We camp here three nights. If in the area in the future, we would probably stay here again.

The location is excellent. We were able to walk down town from the campground and visit all the attractions. The staff was friendly and eager to provide assistance on attractions in the area. We attended the Thursday Farmers Market which we thoroughly enjoyed. The RV sites were a little short but worked okay. The sewer connection was difficult because the connection was below ground level in a pipe. It had rained and the sites were muddy and with ruts. They definitely need to apply some crush rock to the RV sites. Internet service was very good and fast. There are no laundry facilities and no shade trees. It was a quiet campground except for the fog horn one night. We camped there 3 nights, and we would probably stay there again if we were in the area.

Easy campground to find and fast check in to the park. The person was friendly. The internal roads needed attention in the worst way because they had large pot holes. The first site we had wasn't level and also very difficult to access. I asked for a different pull through site and was given one. It was much better however the access was still somewhat difficult. There is a nice restaurant located next to the office. The water pressure was low at times. Many sites are grass and it had rained so it was a little muddy for some of the campers when they were ready to leave. Limited TV reception; only one station. We camped here in a 5th wheel. They had a swimming pool and laundry facilities but we didn't use them.

This is a nice park. The internal roads are in good condition and they are wide enough to make easy turns. The sites are level, wide and long. The laundry facilities were clean and reasonable. The staff were friendly and helpful when requesting local information. The water pressure and power good. I would certainly stay here again. We camped here five nights. I do wish it had WI-FI.

Another really nice Provincial park with full services. Our campsite was a pull though with good 50 amp power, water pressure was a little high and sewer connections were good. The sites were level and long without any overhanging tree limbs. The free Internet connection was weak but usable. Sometime we would drive up by the check-in building for a better Internet connection. The internal wide roads were great--asphalt. The cost was low but one has to pay a Provincial park fee for each day one is in the park. There were some nice hiking trails. The town of Alma was close by and we could watch the lobster boats come in around mid morning and buy lobsters in local fish houses. We would certainly stay in this park again when we are in the area.

This is really a nice campground. It is close to the downtown area making it a short walk from our campsite. The sites are level and wide. The water pressure was good as well as the electrical power. The Internet access was very good and always available. I was able to access the satellites for Dish Network TV, which was great. I certainly would stay at this campground again.

Most of the campground staff were friendly and helpful. The Internet access was very unpredictable and only available up by the office. There were times the office was closed, frequently in the mornings till noon, so Internet access was limited. The internal roads were pretty good but very narrow. Only wide enough for one way traffic even though it was two way traffic. The campsites were uneven on the side of a hill, so it took a lot leveling to setup. The camp sites were very tight and unmarked so people park where they want making it very difficult to get your rig out when it was time to leave. The laundry facilities were in need of repair, so we took our laundry to another place. I feel the campground is way over rated for its amenities because of the quality of the facilities. It was supposed to have a heated pool, but it wasn't open. The rate was very high even though we had a Good Sam discount. The location is excellent if going to the beach or Anne of Green Gables. However there many other campgrounds around. I won't stay at this campground in the future.

This was a basic campground with no frills. We had a long pull through site which was level, one could use either 30 or 50 amp service and the water pressure was good. Verizon cell service was good. It is an older campground but pretty well maintained. The manager was friendly and the park was quiet. It had easy access and egress. We stayed here one night and I would stay here again if in the area. There should be more campgrounds like this one.
