This campground has 20 unserviced sites and 40 sites that are 2 way! The serviced sites are right next to the beach but right next to each other. If you are tenting there is more privacy and larger sites. The bathrooms and showers are clean and there is a laundromat. Most Provincial Parks have laundromats. There is a field to play in, volleyball nets and boardwalks to the beach, along the dunes and over to the lighthouse, inn, gift shop and museum. The lighthouse is an easy walk to get too. There are miles and miles of beaches here but the beaches are rocky and windy. This campground you need reservations for to get serviced sites. It is very popular with those who live on the island and some sites it looked like someone stayed for the summer. We pulled in on Thursday before Labor Day with reservations for two nights and there were only a few sites left that were serviced. I am sure that by tomorrow there will be none but with the hurricane coming it might change some plans for local campers. Most of the Provincial Parks on PEI have pay phones at the check in booth and international phone cards can be purchased at local stores and some gas stations. Everyone is very friendly considering hot hot and humid this week has been. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cedar Dunes is sited directly on the ocean (Northumberland Strait) and the 2-way (W&E) sites 21 to 40 or so are almost directly on the beach--a few feet of grass and then you are in the sand. The hook-ups are set between pairs of sites so that one RV has to back in and the other pull in frontwards. There is sufficient room to pull into the site, unhook, and extract the tow vehicle, but it is close. The view into the strait is extraordinary and this location is a perfect starting place for touring the western end of PEI. Our only complaints are that the sites are rather close together, and there are quite a few seasonal campers whose rigs tended to be old and the sites overgrown and filled with "stuff." The overall beauty of the area makes us rate this park a 9 in spite of the complaints. If you camp in a tent, most of the tent sites have lots of trees and are across a grassy field from the serviced sites (Canadian term) We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
