At the time of the writing of this review the park is undergoing the final stage (hopefully) of a 2-year re-development. Unfortunately, the planned addition of EW sites was one of the victims of recent provincial budget cuts. This is a lovely Provincial campground and staff do an excellent job of maintaining the grounds and keeping the washrooms very clean. The entry road into the campground has been re-surfaced, so unlike many provincial parks, it is a smooth drive in. With the exception of the road to the day use area, the interior roads are gravel and in good condition. Sites in loop B (#45-84) tend to be on the smaller side and best for Class B, C, popups and tents. Loop A & C will be able to accommodate larger rigs. All sites are unserviced but there are pit toilets and water spigots throughout the campground. As well, there is a washroom with free hot water showers, flush toilets, and electric outlets. All sites include a picnic table and firepit. Firewood ($) and ice ($) are available. There is cell phone coverage throughout the park for those with Aliant (Bell), but apparently Rogers customers do not have coverage. Supposedly there is free WiFi at the office but it was not operational during our stay. There are three trails within the park as well as great clam digging on the shore in the day use area. There is a dump station, however, because of the type of fitting at the end of the hose, black tank flushes are not possible.

This is one of the seven self-registration Provincial campgrounds in Nova Scotia. Reservations can be made online ($9) or onsite (no fee). If you do not require a serviced site, sites are generally available on weekdays. The paved entry road into the campground is in desperate need of re-surfacing, though the gravel roads throughout the campground are in good condition. The 10 EW sites in Loop A resemble a parking lot, though site # 1 is waterfront and has decent privacy, and site # 3 has an unobstructed water view. The EW sites tend to fill up quickly and typically are fully booked on weekends, so if you are unable to boondock, advance reservations are recommended. There is decent privacy between sites in loops B & C and these sites are more typical of what you would expect to find in a provincial park. There are vault toilets and several water faucets throughout the park. As this is a provincial park, water is tested daily. The washroom building is located in Loop B and has free hot showers, sinks, and electric outlets. While cleaned once daily, the washrooms could stand to be cleaned more thoroughly and frequently. There is a dump station and generator hours are from 10am until 8pm. Firewood and ice are available ($) and there is free wifi at the check-in kiosk. Full recycling is available. There are no hiking trails within the park, though walking through the 3 loops makes for a nice walk. There is a small pebble beach and a boat launch, though canoe and kayak rentals are not available. The picnic park has become overgrown and is largely abandoned. This is truly a shame as the park is on the shores of the lovely Porters Lake.

This is one of the seven self-registration Provincial campgrounds in Nova Scotia. Reservations can be made online ($9) or onsite (no fee). As this campground is seldom full, we chose the latter option. This is a beautiful little campground with 40 unserviced sites. The grounds are well maintained and most sites have a water view. The washroom building, which is handicap accessible, has free hot showers, electric outlets, and is immaculately clean. There are water spigots throughout the campground as well as 2 pit toilets. As this is a provincial park, the water is tested daily. All sites have a fire pit and picnic table. Kudos to the staff for putting 2 wheels on all of the heavy wood picnic tables. The site description on the reservation website indicates which sites are not level. Firewood ($) and ice ($) are available. There is no beach but there is a boat launch. In my opinion, sites 18 and 33 are the nicest and are quite private. If you have a small class B, C or a pop-up, site 25 has the most spectacular sunset views. Generator hours are from 10am to 8pm. Full recycling is available. Overpriced diesel is available about 9.5 km north of the campground on Hwy 316. For diesel at regular prices you need to go to Sherbrooke (50km) or Antigonish (60km). Antigonish is also your best option for grocery shopping. Marine Drive (Hwy # 7) is wonderfully scenic, however the road is in absolutely terrible condition and will reek havoc on your RV if you choose that route.

This is one of the seven self-registration campgrounds in Nova Scotia, which means that there are minimal staff on site, primarily for maintenance purposes. This means there are few, if any staff run activities at this park. However, this campground participates in the campground host program, so hosts are available to assist and answer campers questions. While reservations can be made online, onsite self registration is easy with a free 'yellow' phone at the park entrance that connects you to a reservation clerk. There is no reservation fee for onsite reservations. Cell phone coverage within the park is almost non-existent, though you may be able to get a signal at the entrance to the park. There also is a payphone and spotty Internet access at the entrance at the park entrance. All sites are unserviced, with most sites being grass covered and quite large. There is a dump station with a hose for black tank flushes and there are water spigots throughout the park for filling your fresh water tank. The campground tends to fill-up on weekends but during the weekdays that we were there in mid-July, there were only half a dozen other campers. There is a clean washroom with free hot showers and a dishwashing station. There is a day use picnic area near the entrance to the park, but separate from the campground. The nearby town of Windsor has all the services you might need. A short distance from the campground on NS 14 there is a gas station that sells diesel, has a NS liquor outlet, and small convenience store. Good luck trying to enter the address of the campground into your GPS as there are two Brooklyn's in Nova Scotia. Ask for directions when making your reservation.

This is a very large campground with almost 500 sites including a number of sections for seasonals and full-timers. Despite its size there are only about 20 EWS sites with 50amp electricity for RV's > 35', half of which are pull-through - fortunately these sites are located at the far end of the campground where there is less traffic and it tends to be quieter. Most sites in the campground are open, however there are several shaded sites with EW for tents and pop-ups. WiFi is available at the office and rec centre. There are washrooms, free showers and laundry facilities ($2 each for wash & dry) in several places throughout the park. Free passes to Lac des Sables beach are provided. Kayak, canoe and paddle boat rentals are available ($13/hr). Our site (#492) was 30' x 60', however the placement of the electric post next to the narrow gravel pad, makes the last 10' feet of the pad unusable if you have slides - this was the case at several of the back-in 50 amp sites. Each site has a firepit and picnic table. Be cautious when using a GPS. My Magellan sent me 3 km past the campground. According to campground staff this is a common occurrence - they might want to consider mentioning this on their website or advising people when they call for a reservation. When turning onto chemin du Lac-des-Sables from Hwy 329, the campground entrance is the first driveway on the left.

This is a most beautiful and large provincial park with over 300 sites, including some seasonals. Electric is 30 amp and connecting 'Y' nozzles to water spigots appears to be an acceptable practice, thus making many sites EW. Do not believe the reservation system's description of "pad slope = level", as many such 'level' sites in loop 3 are uneven not only from front to back, but also from side to side. Even with 3" of levelling blocks I could not level our RV from side to side (site # 301). Also, site 301 was so narrow that I could not extend my awning and the fire pit was so close to the RV that it would not have been safe to use. Several of the sites in the 300 loop were in similar condition and in need of re-grading. There are free hot showers and laundry faciliteis ($). There is a small beach within the campground proper, with the larger main beach being 2 km from the campground but still within the park.

Another lovely New Brunswick provincial park with about 200 sites, including about 20 seasonals. The park is bounded by the Madawaska river. The campground website and reservation service needs updating, in particular, the 15 amp electric sites in at least one loop have been upgraded to 30 amp. The campground has free hot showers and laundry facilities ($). There also are volleyball and tennis courts, a boat ramp, and a heated swimming pool.

We spent 2 nights at Camping Transit as it appeared to be the closest RV park to Québec City. The campground has over 200 sites, with a large number being seasonals. The grounds are well kept and sites are level. About half of the sites are pull-through and each site has a picnic table and fire pit. The campground offers a daily shuttle service to the Levis ferry for old Québec City (9:30 & 4:30 with return pickups at 5 and 9pm), but we found it more convenient to simply drive our truck to the ferry where we could depart and return when we pleased. This campground has all the services and conveniences a traveler would need, including easy access to TransCanada Hwy #20, laundry, RV washing station, heated pool, etc. And the staff are most helpful and friendly. Good Sam member, WiFi = $2/day for 2 devices.

We stayed here during the Montréal Jazz Festival. This is a nothing fancy RV park, with unserviced and 30 amp E sites. Unfortunately reservations are not accepted and good luck inquiring about general availability as there is only a recorded message. There is a dump station and potable water. As I observed idiots cleaning their black hose from the potable water spigot, you may want to bring a container of Javex to clean the faucet. Its easy access to Montreal via the subway (Longueuil-Université de Sherbrooke metro station) and the view of the city across the water are unbeatable. There is also a ferry from the campground to Old Montreal that operates from 10am to 7pm, later on Fri & Sun. A big plus of this campground is that within 9km along Taschereau Blvd are a Chenoys and a Bens for smoked meat, a KrispyKream, as well as grocery and hardware stores, so what more do you need. This place can be jam-packed on weekends, so privacy and E sites are at a premium. The views from the campground (and marina next door) of the Saturday fireworks at LaRonde (10pm) are great. The nightly rate quoted is for an electric site in $Cdn and includes tax; non-electric sites are $28 tx in.

Back your rig into one of their 28 level sites with nothing but the gulf of the St Lawrence in front of you. Besides a spectacular view, each site comes with electric/water, a picnic table and firepit ($30). Can't recall whether it is $15 or $20 for tents and dry camping. There is a dump station with black tank hose on site. The washrooms, with free hot showers, are clean. There is no laundry or recycling. Cell phone service and Wi-Fi (only in the office) are available. As the general public has access to the area on which the campground is located, you might want to consider not leaving valuables in plain view when not at your site. The National Historic site is an easy bike ride from the campground and was our preferred way of touring the site.

Talk about a lovely campground. While I typically choose EW sites, the full service sites are far superior to the EW sites, the latter apparently being the original sites at this campground. If you like privacy, request one of the sites along the perimeter. Each site comes with a picnic table, fire pit and free firewood. While the washrooms are older, they are very clean and offer free hot showers. There are laundry facilities ($) and recycling. Cell phone coverage is spotty, at best, but there is a pay phone by the office.

This campground is about equidistant from Wiltondale and the charming town of Woody Point. It is an unserviced Parks Canada campground with 30 sites including 3 waterfront tent sites. All sites have a picnic table and firepit. Weak cell phone coverage is available. The dump station (with black tank flush hose) and filling of fresh water tank are at the entrance to the campground, which is 4 km away from the sites. However, most sites have a grey tank disposal, so if you are staying for a long period you do not have to make the 8km return trek to the dump station. There are two covered shelters with washrooms, dish washing sinks, and wood stoves. They even provide dish soap and a dish rack. Only one of the shelters has electric lights (which turn off at 11pm due to being powered by a generator), hot water, and free hot showers. There are non-threaded water spigots throughout the campground. Wood ($) is available. Sites are available only on a first-come basis, but seldom is this campground full. And even if it is, ask about setting up in the circle - you will not be disappointed! There is a boat launch. CC are accepted. There is self-registration if no attendant is present. The lovely Stanleyville trail begins in the campground and two other trails are close by. The rate shown is with an annual Parks Canada Discovery pass which gives an $8 discount per night. The closest grocery store is in Deer Lake, so shop accordingly for fresh meat and produce.

While the resort is no more, this is a most beautiful RV Park. Situated along the 14 km Portland Creek River, this is one of the nicest campground that we have stayed at during our 4 weeks in Newfoundland Labrador. There are 29 level serviced sites (EWS, 30 amp), half are pull-through, each separated by a row of trees giving nice privacy ($25). The trees are so high that I could not get reception on my roof-mounted satellite dish! There are also several unserviced sites but they look as if they have not been occupied in some time ($15). There also are 4 fully equipped two-bedroom cabins. There are clean washrooms with free hot showers and laundry facilities (wash & dry = $1.75 ea), but no recycling. The feel here is more of a provincial park that a private campground. There is a boat launch, a wharf, and a small beach where we spent one late August afternoon lying out in the sun. Firewood, ice, and fresh baked bread are available at the office. There is no WiFi, but cell phone service as well as a payphone are available. The nearest grocery store is in Cow Head, about 33 km south.

This campground is best suited for tents and small RV's. There is cell phone coverage throughout the park. There is a dump station but black tank flushes are not possible because there is no fitting at the end of the hose - good planning Parks Canada. The rate quoted is with the $8 discount per day with the annual Parks Canada Discovery pass.

This private campground has both full service and E/W sites. The full service sites are located in two open areas where the RV's are lined up in rows on a gravel surface. The E/W section is much nicer, though only a limited number can accommodate big rigs. All have gravel surfaces for parking your rig (though most units use at least some leveling blocks), with a grassy section that includes a picnic table and fire pit. The best part is that all E/W sites are separated from each other by trees, providing seclusion and privacy from your neighbors. Depending on the E/W site you choose, satellite may be available. No cable or antenna TV is available. Even with a WiFi extender, internet here is slow and unreliable. Washrooms are clean and have free hot water showers. Ice and wood are available ($) and there are on-site laundry facilities. Recycling is of refundable products only. Diesel and propane by the pound, as well as a Home Hardware, are available down the road from the campground on the way to Rte 430. Rocky Harbour has a bank, several restaurants, a fish market, but no grocery stores, only convenience stores. The price quoted is with a 10% GS discount. The 8/10 rating is for the E/W sites, not the E/W/S sites.
