End of season so few campers, they are fixing to pave with asphalt a dirt road section in the by the sea section. Other areas gravel surfaced road and sites. Lots of grass sites. Bathroom clean, white painted plywood; very basic, but hot water. O.K. for an overnight stay. The ocean has lots of seaweed on the beach and the red clay/gritty sand is not attractive for getting in the water for my taste. The seaweed is actually harvested commercially for food and cosmetic product use. Campground has a beautiful view of the ocean though. Few miles north is the interesting windmill turbine hydrogen research facility with a very 1st class restaurant well worth your while. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Jacques Cartier Provincial Park, near Alberton, PEI - $26 for 3 way. Site 6 Total Sites: unserviced 21 and 36 two way and three way. Jacques Cartier built a nice hard gravel 3 way section in their previous overflow area. This was the first year that they had this section and there are problems with the water that they are working on and expect this problem to be fixed by next year. You can use the water but not cook or drink with it at this time so anyone in this section you can get bottled water and jugs from the rangers. We were given a lot of bottles and jugs of water but we also could get the water from the other sites in the tenting area next to us. The rangers are very nice and it seems that there is a ranger or rangers on duty 24 hours a day. This park has a playground, tons of activities and naturalist led nature walks in the summer and a long beautiful beach. It is cooler up here on the bay then on the south coast and firewood may be purchased here for $4.00 for a huge bundle. Again a laundromat, kitchen shelters and dumping station are available as they are in all PEI Provincial Parks. This was a good stop over Labor Day Weekend and to ride out Hurricane Earl here. The rangers checked often driving around and stopping to check to see if the 6 campers that were here were fine before, during and after the storm. Also, all PEI Provincial Parks had a pay phone at the ranger station that those traveling from the USA or other countries can use with a phone card which can be bought in town to call home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
