Rate shown was seniors discount. Our site was at the top of the hill with a spectacular view of the ocean. The site was a grass pull-through that was very unlevel. It seems that many of the campgrounds in the Maritimes have grass campsites and I haven't seen one yet that was level. All hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but found 2 networks on the antenna. Satellite would have worked at our site (#98) as it was a large and open site. No Wi-Fi either. There is access to a beach and some playground equipment. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
58 3 way sites, 20 2 way sites, and 39 unserviced. Costs around $16. Site 9 right on the cliff. Typical PEI Provincial Park with shelters, fire pits, playgrounds and dumping station. Activities in the summer. The beach here is one of the best in PEI – white sand and it just goes and goes and goes with the red cliffs beside it. Some sites are right on the cliff but all sites have a view of the ocean and some of the beach. All sites are on a hill -the new 3 way sites are level and have gravel but they are way back on top of the hill (views are great, too) the others are on grass but you can get level and only the unserviced sites are a little wooded but the views and the beach are just stunning. I think my favorite campground in PEI but they all have something different so it is hard to choose. Not many campers at this time of year and the campground is closing this weekend. PEI uses students to help run their parks and that is one reason that they close so early plus some nights there are only about 4 campers during the week at some of these Provincial Parks. Our first night here there were over 14 campers for the night and the second night most of them pulled out. We were there for two nights but it is a good place to stay for a few days or just for an overnight when touring PEI. Close to Souris, all the great beaches in the area, the ferry to Madeleine and the East Point Lighthouse. If you are lucky you will see seals swim by like we did and even some whales. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very interesting place to camp - great views of the ocean from most sites. The pull-thru sites on top of the hill are level and good for long units. The grassy sites lower down on the hill are not very level for motor homes but being close to the crashing waves can be interesting. Tent camping is very good but be aware that the wind can get very strong right on the ocean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our week stay at Red Point. We had a roomy pull-through at the top of the hill and the view into the strait was wonderful. We thought that the sites lower on the hill were much less desirable. For some reason PEI Provincial Parks allows seasonal campers (never saw this in a US State Park) Unless the staff can keep on top of these, they tend to get very ratty looking with piles of junk around which really takes away from the beauty of the campground. That said, with our location on the top of the hill, we didn't have to look at overgrown "back yards" and thought this was one of the top 3 or 4 campgrounds on our 3 month Maritimes and Down East trip. Free Wi-Fi is available at the nearby Souris Visitor's Center We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is one of our favorite parks on P.E.I. You have 2 choices of sites: ones that front the beach (i.e., great for families) or ones that are high on the hill and afford a wonderful view of the Northumberland Strait. We choose the latter and loved the place!! There is a great sand beach that is perfect for swimming and walking (and, yes, the water really is warm enough for swimming). The restrooms are old, but clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful and friendly. Don't miss the Greenwich Dunes if you stay here. They are about 15 minutes away (by car) and are worth the walk in. Also, there is a great beach at the Dunes. Red Point is a good place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
