Rideau Heights Campgrounds, Ottawa, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is in an excellent central location in Ottawa easily accessed off Prince of Wales Road just north of the junction with Hunt Club Road. Most of the amenities are satisfactory, including wifi (spotty at times) and laundry ($1.75 wash, 0.25/7min dry). The sites are level and gravelled (except for the tent sites) although perhaps a little short for some big rigs though there are several +40ft here. There is some noise from trains, aircraft and trucks but it all calms down at night. The host, is almost always available and quite polite. He seems to be a little hard of hearing but operates well in English and French. Fees are paid in cash only. The monthly rate, $805, is very reasonable, but needs some planning (for most of us) to pay in cash. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rideau Heights Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

We have noted some past negative reviews of this campground but we feel it is a good deal and allows easy exploration of all the wonderful sights of Ottawa. Every kind of shop you could need is available along Merivale Road, about 5 min away by vehicle. If you like hiking, there are numerous National Capital Commission trails. Buses are free for seniors on Wednesdays.

Whidden Park Campground & Cottages, Antigonish, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

There are many good things about this park (friendly staff, lots of helpful signage, lots of washing machines and dryers, level gravel sites, good location for visiting Antigonish and shopping) but the sites are about as tightly spaced as we have ever seen. There were no motor coaches in the park and we wondered how some of the big fifth wheels managed to get into their sites. There is barely room to park your trailer and truck in the same space. Our site was described as a pull-through but apart from us (because we are pulling a tiny19ft trailer) nobody could park with vehicle and trailer in same line. Little privacy. We would not return to this campground and felt it was far too expensive for the space allocated. We camped at Whidden Park Campground & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

The Lakes Campground, North East Margaree, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

The new operators of this park are so friendly. We had vehicle problems which required us to stay an extra night and we were not charged. The park has lots of activities for kids (but not noisy), and it is situated on a pretty river where one can go swimming. The grounds are pleasant though some of the sites are not level and some might be a bit tight for big rigs. The wifi is weak. We stayed at a 2-way site and the dump station was not easily accessed. The laundry facilities were good: they seemed expensive initially but the washers took double loads. Dead quiet at night except for the owls. Lovely. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at The Lakes Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Fundy Spray Campground, Digby, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

The office was closed when we arrived but we were greeted by the owner on arrival after a phone call. The park is easily accessed off the main highway (with slight highway noise) near Digby. The site was gravel and level. The WiFi was slow. The grounds are pretty. We would stay here again mainly because of the closeness to the sites. The campground seemed pricey to us. We camped at Fundy Spray Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Digby is a very fascinating fishing community and it is fun to hang around the harbour watching the scallop boats come in and unload their catch. Prim Point lighthouse is pretty. Exploring Digby Neck is fun too.

Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort, Grand Pre, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

In typical Maritime fashion, we were met warmly. Arriving on a weekend, the campground was packed though quiet in the evening. The sites were very close together and mainly for this reason, we felt the park was overpriced. We were grateful to receive Passport America rate for weeknights. The location is easy to access. The sites are level gravel. WiFi was good. Showers cost $1.00! We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Scotia Pines Campground, Truro, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We were greeted by an exceptionally friendly person at the front desk. The park was easy to access off the 102 but you can hear the highway noise. The sites were very pretty with trees but crowded. Sites were level with gravel. Wifi was free and good at our site. The laundry facilities were good and not too expensive. Overall, the campground was very tidy and clean. However, although the campground was pleasant we felt it was expensive for what was offered. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Old Shipyard Beach Campground, Spencers Island, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow. Here is an unusual place to stay. You can watch the 35 ft tides come in and go out twice a day. The owners are so pleasant and helpful. The access is off the main Glooscap Trail on the Bay of Fundy. The sites are gravel. Sites are a little tight for big rigs and close together (but worth it for the view). WiFi is not accessible at the furthest sites. Very quiet and no road noise at all. No dump station so must must take full-service site or carry the load to next campground. Wish we could stay longer. Hope to come back. We camped at Old Shipyard Beach Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stonehurst Golf Course & Trailer Park, Moncton, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for two nights at the Passport America rate. The grounds are beautiful and there is an adjacent golf course (which we did not use). The WiFi at our site was excellent and free. The laundry room is clean and reasonably priced with lots of books to peruse. Several seasonal campers on the grounds. Access to Moncton with full facilities is 10-15 minutes away. Very quiet at night. We'll definitely come here again and would consider a longer stay. We camped at Stonehurst Golf Course & Trailer Park in a Travel Trailer.

Camping Du Quai, Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

The friendly owners speak good English. We were escorted to our site, which was a pull-through. The grounds were tidy and beautifully well-groomed: lots of plants. The access was easy off the Trans-Canada with a short drive through the town - it's a very convenient place to stop if you are on your way to New Brunswick. The views are gorgeous. We did not check WiFi but it was apparently available at site. Very quiet. We are travelling in a small 20 foot trailer this trip but there were lots of big rigs nearby. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Camping Du Quai in a Travel Trailer.

Rideau Acres Campground, Kingston, Ontario

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed five weeks and this was our second visit. Spacious campground with lots of room, especially off-season. Surrounded by water on two sides and adjacent to Rideau Canal. Easy access off 401 but highway noise not too bad and park is very quiet at night. Sites are mainly gravel and level with many pull-throughs. Grass is cut regularly. WiFi not good except in clubhouse. Friday nights usually offer a theme dinner. Water quality and pressure was variable - make sure you have a filter. Easy access to all facilities. Kingston is a pretty city on the St Lawrence. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Justin's Diamond J RV Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our fourth time staying at this park. We love the spacious sites and proximity to Tucson Mountain Park. You must be self-contained as there are no washrooms or showers. Laundry facilities ore OK but we preferred to go to Thrifty Wash because of more table space for folding clothes. Lots of good hiking. Christine is particularly helpful. Propane is delivered to site. The grounds are beautifully maintained. No picnic tables. We camped at Justin's Diamond J RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very helpful staff greeted us with info about the park. Sites are spacious among oak trees. Some levelling was required. Easy to find though road from I-8 requires careful navigating.

Rideau Acres Campground, Kingston, Ontario

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We're staying for a month ($1050 including water, 30 amp, and sewer) at this very well-run park. The grounds are beautiful. Rideau Acres is one of the few parks in Ontario that is open all year. Laundry facilities are good. WiFi is non-existent at our site but there is a huge meeting room where one can sit with good connectivity. The sites are long and level though many are on grass, so we put supports under the jacks. Very quiet. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rideau Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

Very good campground. We got a great deal: $500 for 5.5weeks (off-season) including 50 amp, excellent free wifi, cable tv, and water/sewer. Friendly bilingual staff. Beautifully landscaped entrance. Most sites on gravel and level, with some privacy due to trees on either side. Quiet, with little highway noise. Laundry area was not clean and many machines out of order. Five minute drive into Shediac with all the facilities and Parlee Beach PP. 20 min to Moncton. Water pressure was a little low. We would definitely stay here again. Lots of seasonals on tidy lots. We camped at Camping Oceanic in a Motorhome.
