I really like this place. It was close and convenient to the PEI Ferry and all utilities were in good shape. The site was level and Wi-Fi was strong at site #2. The owners are very nice and were in the process of adding new sites toward the back of the property. The pool was not opening until the next day but they told us we could use it if we wanted. The seasonal residents were also very friendly. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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.
We agreed to a 30 amp site as it had full, convenient hookups or so we thought. The voltage went up and down at times, water pressure was good but taste like iron. The sewer connection was almost unworkable. It was about a foot off the ground. The camper next to us had their sewer hose inserted in to a PVC pipe with an opening on top for our site. The site was unlevel so between the blocks to make our fifth wheel level and blocks to hook up the sewer, we used all we had. The roads are narrow and rough. There are many permanents, some showing it. All that being said, the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly and this campground is a great place to park while you sight-see or before you take the ferry to PEI. We would stay there again and recommend it to others with qualifiers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this Passport America campground two nights passing through to Newfundland. The park host was very friendly. They helped us get into our pullthrough site as someone was parked in the roadway. The park was filled with seasonal RV's leaving very few for travelers like ourself. The site was long enough for our large MDT and 5er which is 65' total, but a bit unlevel. We were able to get Wi-Fi from our site. The streets are a little narrow and winding getting through town to the the campground just follow the signs. Would stay here again passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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.
