It was very windy so things were blowing around. It was a holiday weekend so the large park was packed. - skidiver

$37CDN = $28 U.S. when we were there. Nice level grass site near the office and entrance. The site was called pullthrough, but was on the very edge of a STEEP dropoff, looking out over the rest of the campground. A lovely view for the five nights we were here. To pull out I had to back the truck under the kingpin at a steep angle and snatch the trailer out. It worked, but not exactly what you normally think of as pullthrough.
All facilities are well maintained including a large playground with lots of kids.
We will stay here again. - Alworth

I may be in the minority but I cannot give this site a positive review. It was very crowded with mainly full timers. The bathrooms were about the nicest I have seen in any campground - except for the sign on the wall that showers were $1.00 (Looney only, exact change needed). No where to get change - showers are in same building as the laundry but it didn't have a change machine either.
Internet was great! I was able to get on in record time, kicked off even faster! The longest I, or others could get on, was about 30 seconds. This is unacceptable in 2015.
Definitely would not stay there again or recommend it to others. - Byebob

The campsite is a small camp just off the 104 Highway and within 2 Kilometers of Amherst. It is situated on a lake, but the water does not look that clean. The restrooms are well maintained and in very good condition. Each restroom includes toilet, sink and shower and is self contained and locked. There are laundry facilities on site at a reasonable cost. - Andrew Hampson

This is a very basic park. The sites are long and wide. We were in very soft ground due to all the rain that they had. No amenities at all,but is a good base camp if you are sightseeing the area. We did take a quick trip to Joggins the afternoon we arrived and the next day to Springhill and Parrsboro. No Wi-Fi, but across the street is the visitors center with Wi-Fi. Access road could use some repair due to all the rain. The Manager was very helpful. - Hiawasseehoney

We just spent over 3 months on the road, traveling through the northeast USA and into the Canadian Maritime. This was absolutely the worst campground of the trip. Restrooms you wouldn't take your dog to use. DO NOT stay in this campground. - dj1230

No one at office when checking in, he arrived much later. Office area is an eyesore - with auto parts and parts of wrecked vehicles lying around. Found only 3 30 A sites for our group of four. Rest of sites are 15 amp. Many sites had no power due to blown or missing fuses at site. The electrical service is archaic - many sites have home made boxes and still use the screw in type fuses - not breakers. One of the main service poles will likely fall over in next storm, and cable is tangled within a couple of trees. Sites are all grass and reasonably level. Water is cloudy and slightly brown. Washrooms and shower are not well maintained. Stayed the night, because we were there, and it was an experience! However, I do not recommend the place to anyone. - willym1

Only a mile from Hopewell Rocks. Some sites have a view of the Bay of Fundy (we had one) as well as a view of the pond with Canadian Geese. Good voltage on 50 amp service. Water pressure varied from low to good. Dusty gravel interior roads. They have a swimming pool but we didn't use it. Make reservations in advance if you want 50 amp and have a big rig. They are hard to come by when the caravans come in but when there are no caravans, there appears to be plenty of space. Open for Direct TV. Most channels come in in high def. Two local stations available. No cable. Siote was not very level and had to move the coach twice to find a spot where I could put the jacks down without lifting the wheels on the passenger side off the ground, but we eventually were able to level the coach. Very acceptable for a few nights. - literod

We contacted the park via email the day before arrival & were advised that being very early in the season the CG was not fully open yet. Very limited site choice, bathrooms in the midst of a major rebuild, bigtime tree trimming underway. No problem for us. All we really needed was power as it was cold. Hence the very reasonable price.
The CG itself is very large & is laid out more like a state park CG than the typical carpark styled private CG. There are sites to accommodate everyone. One area has a bunch of secluded sites which lend themselves very well to tenters or pop ups.
There was good visibility of water surrounding the CG because it was early May & the waterside bushes had not grown leaves yet.
A good place to base when doing Fundy Nat Park & the Hopewell Rocks. - Veebyes

There are a wide range of reviews on this park, from good to poor. We found it a nice park with many different sizes of sites; some are too tight and too small for a big rig. It will be a stretch with some RVs to reach all utilities. We were in the meadow area near Ponderosa Lake overlooking the marsh and Shepody Bay in Site 136. It is a pull-in site and all utilities were well within reach for our 40' Class A. The campground is virtually empty, only a few campers this first week of October. Wifi was slow at times, but very workable. Grounds are clean and well-maintained. We did not use their restrooms or laundry facility. The host was very courteous and asked if we were Good Sam members. The pool is closed for the season; the park will remain open through October according to the host. Small book exchange in the office/store and also a nice selection of tourism information. Park is 1-2 kilometers to the west of the entrance to Hopewell Cape Rocks. Rate reflects US$ for 50amp/water/sewer. - DiplomatTraveler
