Our experience here started off poorly at registration. The sites we were supposed to get (there were 2 families camping together) were not what we were actually assigned. The staff person then questioned what breed of dog we had. When I replied "Lab mix", she asked what the mix was because if it was, "One of the aggressive breeds, the dog would have to leave the park." Very welcoming. When we started to get set up, there were issues with the electricity to both our units. This was rectified fairly quickly. The sites are extremely tight, not spacious and huge as the park advertises. The rec hall was not operational so it limited the activities for the kids. There was signage everywhere advising that if the rules were broken you would have to leave. While I like and agree with parks being firm with their rules, I really don't need to see signage everyone threatening to kick me out. One of the staff people came over to our site to complain about someone who left that morning, because they had left dog waste on their site. He said pretty soon dogs wouldn't be allowed in parks and that it's being done now in the states and is working great. Keep in mind that we and the other family we were here with, both had dogs with us!!! They say they are "pet friendly" but it's more like: tolerate dogs if they have to. The bathrooms were in very poor shape and the hot showers were $1/shower which is very expensive. While we were here, two of the toilets became clogged and I had to go to the office to tell them the toilet paper was low. The pool was just fair and there were no chairs available for parents watching kids. The only thing about this park that actually lived up to its advertising is the view, which is spectacular from some points in the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
They do not let you in to see your site, they demand payment up front, and they changed sections on us at the last minute, we were promised a section, and put somewhere completely different. Because of the cancellation policy and the payment up front, coupled with the 'no refund, no credit' policy we had no recourse and were told to take it or leave it. The owner/manager, depending on the situation, relied on their policies to keep our money for the two weeks we paid for up front. You need to cancel two days before or you are locked in! We complained and wanted out of this campground, to no avail, and they relied on the policy. Not impressed with this place due to by the state of the grounds (rusty unsafe playground with no swings on the swing set, dirty pool with no furniture, unsafe rec hall that should be inspected, and dirty pay showers). Be aware of this policy and only book for one night, if you so desire then extend. Because of the location and by no fault of anything but mother nature, this site has a tendency to be very windy during the days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park could be wonderful if the owners attitudes could be improved. The view is tremendous. The layout of the park is very good, affording many a view of the ocean. The tides here are about 30 feet vertical, but that is not the amazing part. At low tide, many kilometers of ocean floor are exposed, even allowing you to walk from shore to the islands if you had time before high tide came in. HOWEVER: We experienced reverse polarity in the electric supply at our site. Our camper has a sophisticated electric monitoring system that does not allow power into the camper unless it is correct. This is a simple matter to correct, about a 5 minute job. The owners denied any problem with the wiring in the campground, claiming the problem was with our camper. Not only is reverse polarity illegal, it's potentially dangerous. With this kind of attitude on the part of the owners, we wonder what other unseen wiring problems might exist. We observed poor (illegal) wiring practices in the coin laundry room also. EVERYTHING else at the campground is an additional charge. We wanted to put up a "kids tent" on our site. We had already paid for the site and each one of us in the camper. They wanted an additional charge of $11 per night of our 7 night stay for setting up the tent on our already paid for site. I could go on, but won't. We likely will not stay here again if we return to the area, which is beautiful. We would recommend that others find a different campground to stay, also. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price reflects Passport America (even in Canada). We arrived and experienced some inexperience in the office - work camper was new and confused as to which sites we could be on and which we couldn't. PA is offered on limited site, back from the water - although we were super early in season and no one was booked for waterfront pull-thru. Instead we were given a back-in. Site was not clearly marked so we were glad we had an escort to our site. Site is on grass - be careful if it's raining, your rig might get stuck. Pool was not open, minimal playground. We were told we'd have to keep our dog on leash all the time while in the campground (we wanted to let him run after a ball on a hillside away from the 3 other folks who were there, and were denied). Bathrooms have allegedly been updated, but the amount of grime and water stains on the ceiling tiles tells a different story. Staff suggested a destination for us, but neglected to give us complete instructions/details. Same with instructions to shopping (we were advised to drive 15-20 minutes, turns out it was 45 minutes). CG's website advises taking local route to campground - road was in extremely poor condition. When we arrived we learned of alternate routing on major highway. They don't list that one because there's a toll on highway. Wish they had listed both ways and let us decide if we want to pay toll or not (we took toll road out of Province and found the ride so much better) We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Everything about this RV park is outstanding. This is one of those rare parks that not only does everything right but the people here do it with a smile and a pleasant attitude. The view is spectacular of the Five Islands off the coast looking into the Bay of Fundy. We chose the ocean front premium site but there are other less expensive sites that still have a view. The ocean front view is a 180-degree panorama. Awesome. The owner tells me that they just installed high speed Wi-Fi and I can attest that it is super fast, probably the best I have experienced in eastern Canada. The sites are gravel and level, water pressure is great, electric, water, sewer hookups are together on the correct side (hooray!) and there are no side by side or doubling up on the utilities. If you buy firewood they will deliver it to your site. Can't say enough good things about this place and can't find a single thing wrong except possibly no cable, but heck who needs TV with this view? I will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great view of Five Islands and Fundy Bay. Big tide swings. Clamming area. Wi-fi only in recreation area. (Supposedly wind damaged antenna). Restrooms were functional but very rough looking. Late season, so very few rigs in campground. Nice beach and secluded area. Most expensive campground of two month trip! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Because of their website and the rating the "Resort" was given in the Nova Scotia Doers and Dreamers travel guide, I was expecting a great place. It was THE biggest disappointment of our vacation. I had a bad feeling when we were registering and had a list of rules read to us. There were also signs everywhere with warnings you'd be kicked out if you broke a rule. It was made very clear to us that no refunds are given. Thank goodness we only paid for 2 days even though we originally planned on staying for 4. We were charged an additional $5 day for having more than 4 people in our RV. Although the park was almost empty, we were charge an additional $8 a day to move our site to one two lanes closer to the shore - a "premium" site. The laundry facilities were the worst of any park we visited. The men's showers were down. The pool was closed. The WiFi didn't work. You name it, it wasn't working. We left the second day (we knew better than to ask for a refund) and will be notifying Nova Scotia tourism that this place doesn't even come close to the description in the guide and that they are completely misrepresenting themselves on their website. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park with a great view of the 5 islands. Sites are gravel and level and we didn't have anyone on either side of us. Adequate space between sites though. Picnic table included as well as a fire ring. Pool is under renovation at this time. Wi-Fi comes and goes in and out. Water and electric both are good. Absolutely no AT&T service in this area. The camp host is friendly, but not too knowledgeable of the area. When I called for a reservation I said that we wanted to see the 45 foot tidal surge, and was told we would (70 mile one way trip from here if you want to see it). Best to bring any groceries you may need with you as a grocery store is not close by. We were a bit disappointed and feel we were mis-led that we would see the 45 foot tide from this location. The tide here is only 7 or 8 feet at the most. Had we known and done a little more research we would have stayed in the South Maitland area where you can actually see the 45 foot tidal surge. That was our mistake. For that reason we would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The view is a definite l0 with it being the best of all of the Five Islands. It would have been wonderful to have some chairs/benches along the banks overlooking this fabulous view. I was disappointed in how close the lots are (although the owner had been honest with me when I asked over the phone). However being there later in the season, we only had close neighbors on one of the 2 nights we stayed. The pool is in need of repair of rust stains and peeling paint. It would be nice to have a few lawn chairs around the pool or even a bench to sit to watch the little ones in the pool. I had read on the website about digging clams right on the beach, and this was no exaggeration. Almost everyone came up the hill with a bucket of clams, so be sure and bring a shovel and boots. There are several quaint places nearby to explore for bazaars, artisans and a lovely cheese factory. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice campground with a great location and view of Five Islands and the Bay of Fundy. Campground is in great care and it appears the owners take pride in their site. Gated access, roads are big rig friendly and wide. Very impressed with the 3 way hookups that very well built and new. Sites are very level which is nice. Gravel sites for parking with a small patch of green grass on the side. Large play area and field, access to the rocky beach, owners have just added new drive-through sites and there are many sites for all types of RV, tent-trailers or tenting. Overall good experience and my only dislike is that just like most other privately run campgrounds, the sites are too small in comparison to Provincial and National Parks. We would come back if in the area again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stunning views. Well maintained, level sites. Beach access. The beach is mud flats that are suitable for clamming. The pool was not operational despite it being late June. The rec hall was not open and looked like it needed maintenance. Additionally, the washrooms were undergoing maintenance and only one was operational. The playground was dated but the kids enjoyed it. Friendly, helpful staff with good knowledge of the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Open park with good views of Five Islands. Back-in sites but terraced so all have good views. Helpful staff, but propane for bottles only. Generally quiet. Stayed overnight and would again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
