The location of this park is the only thing that saved me from giving it a less than average review. The sites for the travelers are VERY tight! To get our 37 Ft fifth wheel to fit onto the site, we had to back up within inches of the camper behind us. When we put our awning out, we had about 2 feet of space to the next rig. Thankfully, we had great neighbors and we all worked together to park our tow vehicles. When we left in the morning, we had to ask neighbors to move their cars so we could exit. The campground is very pretty and their are large areas set aside for playgrounds etc. The more spacious sites are set aside for the seasonal campers. We would not return to this park. Too tight! We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly and helpfull staff. Entrance to campground a bit narrow and the first 100 yards or so is bumpy. Interior roads are a bit narrow and bumpy. Had a spacious and long pull through site. Water pressure was great. Should be like that in all parks. 50 and 30 amp service with breakers on site. Wifi was slow and near impossible at peak volume times. No cable TV.

The Baddeck Cabot trail is an all day tour. Road construction on portions of the road. Visit the Fortress at Louisbourg. About an hour trip and pack a lunch to enjoy there. Town of Baddeck is nice and a very nice waterfront.

One of the better RV parks in Canada. the owners are very friendly and have excellent service. We had no problem getting our 40' 5th wheel into our spot. They escort you to your spot and guide you in if you need help. Water pressure is good, connections are placed properly. Wifi was very good compared to 90% of parks in North America. We were in the area at the top of the park, lots of space between spots. Was here 2 years ago and highly recommend this location to explore the Cabot Trail and Sydney; do the trail one day, Sydney and Louisburg the other and that's enough for Cape Breton!

Spend one day driving the Cabot Trail, and one day exploring Sydney and the Louisburg Fortress. If you really need to go to Newfoundland? you can take the ferry from Sydney

Price quoted in Canadian Dollars. We stayed for 6 nights in mid June. Campground was not busy. WIFI worked well. Campground is well kept and neat. Close to town of Baddeck. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the second time we have stayed here and we think it is a very good campground. We ask for the pull throughs in the 240/250s range and they are quite spacious - obviously not as large as you can get in a Provincial or State park, but good for a commercial campground. We have a 36 foot 5th wheel, with 3 slideouts (on both sides) and we're fine. There was plenty of room to park our truck without feeling cramped. The campground has all of the facilities, good washrooms, pool, woodland trail, convenience store (with complimentary DVD rentals) and a campers' lodge with free coffee, TV, pool table etc. The owners are friendly and helpful, and it is dog friendly. The campground is only a 5-10 min drive to Baddeck. We like it here. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beddeck area is one of Nova Scotia's secrets. Entrance to Cabbot Trail which is in itself worth the entire visit. Campground is old KOA but well kept with lots of things for the family. We are seniors so we concentrated on the beauty of the area and the village of Beddeck. Access is easy from main highway and all services were as advertised. Definitely would stay again. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location to check out Cabot Trail and other attractions in this area. The owners are very friendly. Some sites are on hilly area but we had a nice level one for our 40' RV. Nice solid gravel sites. Very good value. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great central location for sightseeing. Check-in was quick and we were allowed to choose our site which was different. We were able to pick what worked for us. Power and water pressure was good although the water has an iron flavor. Cable was wires running down the length of the area where we were but worked. WiFi was great. We would stay here again and recommend it to others. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We picked this park because of its proximity to the Cabot Trail. The park is fine. The sites are NOT level. Our auto level system could not handle it. We were traveling with friends, and we got 2 pull throughs side by side facing each other, and we shared the space in between. Wi-Fi is iffy as it comes and goes. Check in was very friendly, and the laundromat is clean with lots of machines. The sites are narrow with not a lot of room to walk around your RV. We were there for 7 nights, and we did enjoy it.

This is an old KOA campground. They give both KOA and Good Sam discounts which is good. Our 5th is just shy of 40 feet in length and this park is fairly old which makes getting around the park a challenge. Park owners and staff were great. Good solid WIFI and power. Would probably try somewhere else next time only due to the narrowness of roads, etc. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The owners/managers of this park are very attentive and personable and helped us solve a problem with our RV in a very timely manner. The park is better than average but has some serious water pooling problems which occurred during some heavy rains during our stay. It could use some more gravel work on many of the sites. Access is also a little on the tight side. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall, quite acceptable. Back-ins and pull throughs are available. I would recommend one look at the site first as there are several different views. Some of the highlands and some of trees and other RV's. Restaurant and pool closed as after Labor Day and tourist season winding down. Two canoes are available to rent as the campground borders a calm river. Also, a walking trail is available that goes around part of the premises. Wi-Fi was very good. Staff friendly and helpful for things to do. Nice store as well. Storage is also available for a fair price. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent a week here and the rate reflects that. The park was very nice. It was a busy time of the year and a lot of activity but all was handled very smoothly. It made a great jumping off point for all the area sites. We'd definitely stay again. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Like other reviewers we stayed here while we explored the Cabot Trail. What makes this such a great place to stay is the family that owns the campground. From having a restaurant with great food to keeping the grounds well maintained they try to make sure all of their guests have a good stay. Wi-Fi is exceptional- one of the best we've used. We camped at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent campground. We used it as a base for a week to tour Cape Breton. Very easy to find right on the Trans-Canada Highway. It filled up quickly over the weekend, so reservations would be a good idea. Internet access is reliable. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Electric, water and sewer are located midway along the length of the sites, which make hooking up convenient without the need for extensions. We would stay here again.
