This park, located in a pretty area of bays and inlets, has a well established feel with large trees and mature foliage throughout. Gravel roads are easy to navigate, and sites are grass with just a bit of gravel to park on. Our site was plenty long and just wide enough for our 37' MH and toad, but sloping enough we had to drive onto 3" of blocks before leveling. The electric post was a bit scary with a large opening in the box that showed wires inside; the 30 amp outlet didn't work, but the 50 amp did; electicity went out completely on our 2nd nite there, and even after we reported the problem in the morning, remained out for the couple of hours until we left. The water and sewer hookups were convenient and effective. Free WiFi was available and worked reasonably well. The laundry was large, clean, and only $1.50 a load for each of wash and dry. Overall we liked the area and thought that the park was a pretty good value at this price.

This park is located near numerous galleries, shops, restaurants, overlooks, hiking trails, and beaches along the Cabot Trail. It provides easy access via good gravel roads to large camping loops dotted with small shade trees. Our grass site was fairly spacious for a 37' MH and toad, and the 30 amp, water, and sewer hookups were conveniently placed. There was no WiFi available. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry. We considered it an ok value for these amenities at this price, and a good base from which to explore the lovely area.

What a treat it was to look out the windshield while eating and see whales, seals, osprey, and more! The park itself is rather simple, with gravel roads and gravel pads on grass sites that were fairly level and just large enough for our 37' MH and toad. High on a rocky bluff, there were no trees or shrubs to block the wind or give privacy from other campers. The water and electric hookups were conveniently placed, but only provided 15 amp service. There was no sewer at the site, and we didn't bother with the available dump station. There was no WiFi in the park, so we went to a restaurant or sat in the car outside the library to connect. We didn't use the available bathroom and laundry facilities. A park with these amenities would be a decent buy at this price regardless where situated, but in this location--on a hilltop overlooking the bay and harbor--it is a great value. Only downsides are that the park is a bit rough overall (bumpy gravel roads, primitive signage, credit cards not accepted, etc.) and having to repeatedly take down and replace a chain across the entrance.

Pretty standard for a simple park convenient to the highway. Gravel roads and gravel pads set on grassy sites are given just a bit of character by a dotting of trees throughout. The sites are adequately sized for our 37' MH and toad, but set side-by-side with no privacy. The water, 30 amp, and sewer hookups were convenient. There was no WiFi at the sites, so everyone gathered around the registration kiosk to connect. We didn't use the bathrooms or laundry. Price seemed typical for the amenities offered.

A fairly large park in the middle of the city gave convenient access. The gravel roads were easy to navigate, and the gravel pad set on a grassy site was plenty large for our 37' MH and toad. A nice plus was solid cover of trees on three sides that gave really nice privacy on the site. The water, 30 amp, and sewer hookups were convenient, though the sewer inlet was rather high off the ground. There was no WiFi at the sites, and even when we went to the gazebo as recommended the throughput was too slow to be useful. We did not use the bathrooms. The laundry was small and totally filled with mosquitos after someone left the door open all night, but the clothes did come out clean. :) We felt it was a good value for the amenties offered at this price.

Gravel park roads were easy to navigate to our unserviced site which was a reasonably level gravel pad with plenty of space for our 37' MH and toad. The pad was surrounded by grass and a good cover of trees on three sides that gave a private feel. Some sites had WiFi, but not in our end of the loop, so we went to the camp store to connect. We did not use the bathrooms or the laundry. Note that the rating reflects our unserviced site, and would have been higher had we been on one with hookups. We considered the price a pretty good value for the amenities offered.

The RV section of this park is a big gravel parking lot with easy access for big rigs. Although some of their pull-thru sites are larger, our back-in spot felt pretty close on all sides for a 37' MH. The water, 30 amp, and sewer connections were very convenient. Free WiFi was fairly reliable, but throughput was quite slow. The cold-water-only laundry was reasonably priced. We felt it was a pretty good value for the amenities offered at this price.

It's well worth the twisty, hilly roads to get to this park which is surrounded by lovely views in every direction. The gravel loop was easy to navigate in our 37' MH, but we are glad we made a reservations because they had only one site big enough for us. The site was lovely: grassy with a gravel pad, picnic table, fire ring, and private with tall evergreens all around. Plan ahead for boondocking, as there are no hookups and the potable water faucet at the bathhouse ran very slowly when we tried to fill our tank. Though we had to ask them to turn the WiFi back on a couple of times (they shut it down to conserve power), it was otherwise very reliable and quite speedy. Bathrooms were simple and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and felt it was an outstanding value at this price.

With three strikes against, this park is out for us. Poor signage at the road caused a missed approach and a couple mile backtrack. The water on our serviced site required boiling. The advertised WiFi did not work. And the young people staffing the office seemed not to understand our concerns and were powerless to do anything about the issues. A gravel road to a large grass field with sites backing to a row of trees was easy to navigate. Our site, simply a part of the grassy field, was fairly smooth, level, plenty long, but rather narrow. We connected to the convenient 30 amp hookup, but chose not to put the contaminated water into our rig. There was no sewer on our site, so we used the convenient dump station. The WiFi never worked. The bathrooms and showers were adequate. We did not use the available laundry facilities. The price was fairly low at this park, but it still didn't feel like a very good value given the obvious shortcomings. We hope that this is a short-term situation and that others have a better experience here in the future.

Wide gravel roads are easy to navigate with our 37' MH, and the grassy area surrounded by trees gives a park-like feel. Our site, with its gravel parking pad, picnic table, and trash can, was nice and level, though there wasn't any extra room once we extended slides on both sides, and no separation from nearby campers on three sides. We connected to the convenient 30 amp and water hookups; there was no sewer at the site, so we dumped on the way out. WiFi was out initially, but the host graciously restarted it at my request and thereafter it was available, though a bit spotty and not terribly fast. We did not use the available bathrooms or laundry. We felt this park was a bargain at the price, especially given all the pretty vistas a short drive away in the surrounding area.

This park is tight for our 36' MH, but they put us on site 2 which was easy to access. Although it was a pull-though, the site was too short for us to leave the car hooked up. All of the sites in this section are well-packed gravel flanked by grass with a picnic table and fire ring. We connected to the convenient water and 30 amp hookups, but did not use the available sewer. Although WiFi initially wouldn't connect, the owner graciously restarted the access point, and thereafter we had a very strong signal and wonderfully fast throughput. The bathrooms were clean and convenient, but showers cost extra. We didn't notice whether or not there is a laundry available. Overall, we thought it was decent value at this price for the amenities offered."

This park is a bit tight for our 36' MH with tow, so we ended up with a long tour through narrow, dirt roads to reach our assigned section. We backed into a level, grass site between rows of nice evergreen trees that give a bit of privacy, but it was very narrow and short, with barely enough room to extend the slides on both sides of our coach, and parking for the car across the field. We connected to the convenient water and electric hookups, but didn't bother with the sewer. The WiFi was spotty, and when we inquired about it the manager was not very helpful, claiming it was due to our computer configuration. We knew this was not the case, however, when half the campers left the following Sunday morning and the WiFi improved remarkably--though it still cycled in and out pretty frequently. The laundry facilities were large, clean and well priced. We did not use the bathrooms. The staff at this park seemed oddly abrupt and indifferent, which is very unusual compared to other parks we've visited in the Maritimes. Overall, we felt the price was high for the amenities and services offered by this park.

"Roads in the park, some paved, some dirt, are narrow with overhanging branches to dodge in places, and, unfortunately, two-way. Add a plethora of exuberant children on bikes, and the area requires extra vigilence. Our grass site was fairly level and quite spacious with conveniently placed water, 30 amp, and sewer hookups. A couple of small trees added a bit of character, but no shade. The free WiFi signal was strong, but the throughput was miserably spotty and slow. Although we didn't use the bathrooms or laundry, the facilities looked clean, convenient, and the washers seemed reasonably priced. Overall value seemed Okay for these amenities at this price."

"A narrow, dirt road through the park gave adequate access for our 37' MH to our incredibly large, reasonably level, grassy site (#32) complete with picnic table and fire ring. Although we didn't really have significant shade, a couple of large trees were a nice touch. There were only a few other campers in the park, so the very large grassy expanse surrounded by tall evergreen trees felt a bit like our own private park. :) Our friendly ""neighbors"" were nearby on the next site due to shared posts for the water and electric hookups which we both used, but we were parked with our doors facing away from each other so it did not feel overly close. There was no sewer hookup on site. We didn't use the available toilet and shower facilities. There were no WiFi nor laundry facilities available. Overall, the park seemed a decent value at this price for the amentities offered."

Paved road through park gave easy access to a level, gravel site that was quite adequate for our 37' RV and toad. Friendly campers we nearby on other sites, and trees provided some nice shade. We used the convenient water and electricity hookups; there was no sewer, so we dumped on the way out. We didn't use the available toilet and shower facilities. There was no WiFi at our site, and that at the kiosk was very weak, so we enjoyed coffee and breakfast at the Octopus Garden cafe a mile away in Alma and connected there. Similarly, there was no laundry in the park, we we went to the little laundromat in Alma. Price was a good value for amenities provided.
