This park is mostly seasonals with a small, unlevel, area for transients. Our motorhome needed several boards and ended up with the front wheels off the ground. - Mtmoi

This is a very nice park. IT is quiet and spacious. It was easy access to the highway. It has nice navigatable roads and spacious lots. Our lot had a concrete patio and a new picnic table. Everything was well maintained, trimmed, and clean. The restrooms were immaculate, each one having it's own shower. The showers cost $1 for 10 mins. The laundry room is very nice too. The costs were $2 ea wash and dry CAD. They had a nice pool and game room.
It's misleading though to brag about being on the lake, when there is only one small set of steps leading to a small dock that go to the lake. It is a very limited access and view of the lake.
The only other drawback is that they do not have a keypad enry and you have to wait for the office person to see you and open the gate.
We stayed 2 nights in a 35' motorehome, with tow dolly.
We plan to stop here again on our way back through. We highly recommend this park. - Jo and Bob

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

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

Entrance to campground required passing under trees that had branches hanging down. That caused some scratches on paint. Park power was very low, (105 volts), which kept us from using microwave, or any high wattage appliances. This is an older campground, that is not kept up, and despite the passport rate, is one we will never use again. - chiperdan

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

Nice but dated campground next to Hopewell Rocks. Interior roads are narrow gravel but we had no trouble negotiating our 45 ft MH to our site. Sites are gravel and close together with grass between sites, with picnic table and fire ring. Larger sites are 50 amp FHU in the open and smaller sites are 30 amp in the woods. We had site 135 which was perfect for us - 50 amp FHU with very nice view of pond in front of site and distant view to Funny Bay with no tree so we could access satellite. Cost is in Canadian $. Wifi is very good - I was able to access Netflicts. Site was level and long enough for my MH but had to park my tow in the adjacent grass. - Tom Willing

The sites are quite close together and the doubles ones can be confusing. Our site was fairly nice with trees for aome privacy. The bathrooms are totally remodeled and the showers have heated floors! Laundry facilities available and decent Wifi. Our price was $32.40 CDN with Good Sam discount before taxes for a 20 amp site. - MSSW

We stayed on a site furthest away from the office, with a number of other motorhomes and larger 5th wheels, on a cul-de-sac overlooking a small pond. The sites closer to the office were smaller and were really packed in, so I was happy not to get one of those. We were one of the few American families at the park during the day we stayed at the park. It appeared many of the guests were from Toronto or Quebec. We found the campground mostly kept clean although some of the guests in the tent area left it a complete mess when they left. Bathrooms were immaculate, mostly. Again, some of the tenters in that area had left it a complete mess when they departed. I observed this as I walked my dog and later returned to use the bathroom. We had no issues with Power, Water or Staff. Everyone was actually very friendly. The park has in some ways better views of nature and the ocean than nearby Hopewell Rocks. - MrRoboto
