The owners were very accommodating when we arrived to occupy our site, and people were still there. They offered another comparable site, but the people left within 15 minutes of our arrival so we were able to take our originally assigned site. Bathrooms/showers were clean. There was a nice playground area for the kids. It was convenient to the town of Pictou for sightseeing. Sites were pretty close together with no buffers, but the wooded sites were nice. Wi-Fi was good and we were able to use our satellite TV. We would come back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly welcome and later in our stay by the new owners as of 2008. The showers were clean but cost a loonie for 4 min. There is no laundry on site. The sites are well manicured and level where we camped near the bath house. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Confrontational, disrespectful management. All is well until your money is received. In more than thirty years of camping and RV'ing to many areas of Canada and abroad, we have not encountered such an experience. Total lack of safety when park maintenance is performed around and near very young and small children using playground and play structures at this campground. High speed mowing and motorized equipment used very close to vehicles and children is beyond belief. This is a tragic accident just waiting to happen. Supervision is a must at this location and any of our attempts to ask for anternate maintenance times went unanswered and safety concerns ignored. We camped here in a Tent.
This is one of two campgrounds listed in Woodall's in Pictou. This one is to the west of the rotary, and the other is to the east. We first tried the other one but it was full of dumpy seasonal units, with no shade. Birchwood is a nice family campground, a little small but very neat. There are a few seasonal units. We stayed in a space at the top of the hill and had to bring out the leveling blocks. On the hill, the sites are a little close together. It doesn't look like a big rig would be able to maneuver in this campground. Would stay here again due to proximity to PEI ferry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America rate. Mostly seasonals, but not many there when we camped. Roads were a little rough but not bad. As previously mentioned, non-seasonals are in a pull through area--back-ins are also available. Nice semi-private beach as well. Manager most helpful and friendly. Wi-fi worked fine. Laundry facilities also available. This would probably be a very busy place in the summer. Pictou is a pretty little town. Enjoyed our stay for three days! Favorable winds--no paper mill smell. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Owner was very friendly and helpful. It's nothing fancy but very convenient to Pictou. Lots of seasonals here but they keep an area of about 25 sites for public. We have stayed here 3 times and like it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I really liked this campground and the people that own it. I only gave it a 6 as it is a little rough, sites not level, can be difficult to get a large rig into them. Nice beach and quaint town nearby. I would definitely come here again and stay for several days We camped here in a Motorhome.
Downwind from large paper mill, this place stinks. Roads in the campground were in bad need of repair, as were the restrooms and showers. Mostly occupied by seasonal residents, the sites available for overnighters were on the back side of the campground and accessible on a narrow curvy road. The only thing this campground has going for it is its proximity to the PEI Ferry. If you can, pass this one by. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has many full time residents or vacation units. Our site was a roughly hewn pullthru, not very level. the park is not especially attractive, though it is conveniently located near the PEI ferry. Pictou is a charming town and worth the visit. The owner/manager of the park is a delightful fellow, very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent wifi close to the office, which is on the shore of Pictou Harbor, near it's exit to Northumberland Strait, with a small lighthouse. CG is mostly grassy sites, on a hill gently sloping to the shore, mostly open for good satellite views. There are a lot of seasonal units, but most were well kept, and all the people we met very friendly and looking to be helpful. CG is 2-3 miles east of town, close to PEI ferry. we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
