RV park is gravel and grass. But very nice grass. Park is very well maintained. Free Wi-Fi. Beautiful rolling meadows that lead down to large ponds that drain and fill with the tide from the Bay of Fundy. Some RV spaces are on wide open meadows and some are tucked in amongst the tall pine trees. Entire park smells like a Christmas tree lot. Heavenly. Staff and other campers are very friendly. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

See Hopewell Cape Rocks, Fundy National Park, Village of Alma, Cape Enrage and the City of Moncton. & Campobello, home of FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Stayed for 2 nights in 26' rig. If you want to see the Hopewell Rocks, you cant much closer than from here. Usual for the area tight spots, full hookups with no problems. Kids accessed Wi-Fi from within trailer. Tree coverage and grass (sap got on truck). Front desk had coordinating shirts with campground name and personal names on them, accommodating and friendly. $5 per person for visitors which seemed quite steep. Provided maps for area. Used laundry facilities. All amenities close by. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I would have rated this facility higher except that whoever did the layout for sites along the dammed up lake did not know what they were doing. Sites are big but pads are 10 feet from the connections. The result is that every picnic table one the lee side is three feet from the neighbour's septic. If you plan to stay more than one night, plan to eat out. The owners need to fix this or they will continue to get slammed. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground is very close to the Hopewell Rocks and very convenient to see the rocks during both high and low tides. This campground was very clean and had a variety of sites (pull-throughs, back-ins, shaded, field, along the lake, along the ocean etc...). Be sure to have bug spray at this campground as the mosquitos can be abundant. The sites were level the pedestal had good electricity and water. Wifi was available on site and we were able to get 2 channels on our antenna. The staff in the office were very personable. We would stay here again if we were to visit the Hopewell Rocks.

We stayed 2 nights because of the proximity to Hopewell Rocks and other areas of Fundy National Park. Most of the campsites are in tall pines and are OK, though some are very crowded. We were in a "trailer site" meaning when we backed in the utility connections were on the left side. The site next to us was for a motorhome which would pull in forward. However, both sewer connection were far forward of our trailer, so we did not use it. From in back of our trailer we looked out over water. Restrooms were older and very small. The 3 separate shower rooms were unisex and were OK. Wi-Fi was iffy. There is a small store in the office. Although we had no trouble backing into our campsite, the road to our site was very narrow and there are trees very close on both sides. The campground filled up for the weekend, and there was very little space to park either tow vehicles or towed vehicles. Also, there are posts near the front of the campsites that prevent making a tight turn. When we were leaving on Saturday morning, we had to ask another camper to move his truck because we couldn't get our truck and 22' trailer past it. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

WiFi is so slow as to be almost useless. The washrooms were clean but very, very tiny. The kids liked the playground. Pool small and not heated, we didn't use it. We would stay there again if in the area. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Ditto what others have said: great location (for visiting Hopewell Rocks) and large sites (in the rear) have pleasant water-view and many have USA satellite reception. Our $46 rate was based on 30 amp service; 50 amp service was quoted at $55. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for a week. Rate includes taxes and is for 6 nights/get one free deal. We were given site #44 in the older section of the park, which we thought was good in that we had no neighbors on one side and had a view of the woods and lake (through the trees). Although we had a good site, we thought most of the other sites were too close together. The sewer hookups were not capped and gave off odors when neighbors were dumping. Internet was iffy, requiring us to go outside for a good signal. Lots of flies around due to a lack of cleanliness by the trash cans. The park in general did not seem to be well maintained. The hiking trail around the lake was overgrown and fell off to one side, not a fun walk at all. It was convenient to see Hopewell Rocks and Fundy National Park. We would recommend this place for only a couple of days stay. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our 2 week stay. We had the best site with clear view across the lake to the Bay of Fundy. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Very quiet and serene. The Wi-Fi worked very well. 30 and 50 amp services available. The sites and roads could have used more gravel. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this park because our large MDT and 5er would fit and it was the closest to Hope Well Rocks National Park. We had a back in site that was level and back up to a small lake, and a short walk to Fundy Bay. The Wi-Fi worked at our site. Would stay here again.

We camped here after touring the Hopewell Rocks. It's just two kilometers away. It has a great location, next to the river with a large pond as well - we love waterside camps. Wi-Fi was strong, but as always shared with your neighbors, so speed was slower, but adequate. Adequate spacing with wooded and open sites. Dish reception in the open sites. We would stay here again.

Nice Park. Close to Hopewell Cape Rocks. Gravel roads, and a little dusty, but overall a good place to stay. We are 38 feet. You can see the tide from some lots. They also have walking trails to down close to the water. Bathrooms were pretty clean. We would stay again. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Just a mile +/- from Hopewell Rocks park. 20 miles from Moncton. They have both shaded/woody and open (field) sites. Most sites were nice and level with good width. Steady breeze makes it very comfortable. Sites for all types of camping too. Just be sure you have all groceries, etc on board as it is a bit of a drive in any direction to dine out or restock. A well stocked camp store for emergency incidentals. Truly enjoyed our stay. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Used Ponderosa Pine as a stopping point in our travels from US to Cape Breton Island: stayed 1 night. They're listed as closest campground to Hopewell Rocks (tourist attraction). Stopped on our way in (low tide) and on our way out (high tide). Staff member at office assigned us a site she thought would be perfect. Unfortunately she didn't know if it was a pull in or back in. Also she didn't take into consideration what direction of roadway we should go to make the turn in to site. Needless to say, site would have been a pull in for us and as a 5'er that wasn't going to cut it. Also, it was in a grass field and the area was full of other campers with lots of kids and dogs running about: all over various sites. Heading back to the office, we took a pull through under trees and hoped that would work. No one was assigned that area, so we stayed: much better for us. No one else was camping in that section. Roadway in campground is packed gravel or dirt. Pull through sites are interesting as they are listed as 2 sites in one drive. Guess the first unit gets to pull through, but the 2nd would pull in behind and back out if they left first? We stayed before peak season so it didn't matter to us. There is a playground for kids and they rent kayaks if you want to go on their "lake" (small pond). We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park was very clean and I loved the Wi-Fi. The water, electric and sewer service sites are all in the oldest section of the park and they are packed in like sardines. There are some nice back in sites near the lake but they do not have sewer. The washrooms were clean but there was a lot of pealing paint. The showers had sand and mud all over the floor and the water pressure was really low. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did not stay in the park but used it as a base to get out and see the area. As such it met our needs. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.
