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

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

Closeness to the Hopewell Rocks is this place's selling point. Our site had a nice view of the lake and marshland. We walked out to the dam after sunset but didn't spot any moose. The 10 mph speed limit is governed by prevalent potholes. Wifi was weak at our site far from the office. - Mtmoi

If you get the right site, this is a great place to stay. We had a beautiful backin wooded site and the sites along the waters edge were good too. But some of the sites are doubles - two campers on one long site and they are VERY tight. And some of the sites are along the road which is very dusty. The staff is great. You can walk down several paths to see the marsh and the waterfront which is quite nice. The park is very quiet. - mary mcmoo

Stayed in one of the larger sites designed with motorhomes in mind (utilities on the correct side to pull straight in). We had a nice view between the bushes of a small pond. Sites are close together and the park roads were dusty when we were there due to a lack of rain. The park has a small not heated pool that we did not use. We had a nice view of the bay from outside our RV and could see the tides coming in & out. There is a mix of tent camping, small RV's and large motorhomes in the campground. WiFi worked OK. Great location for visiting Hopewell Rocks & Fundy National Park. It's a 40 minute drive into Moncton for a grocery store of any size. Roads inside the park are gravel & rough. - Co-Mike
