Stayed over long weekend July 31 -August 3. Not impressed. Washrooms were not clean by pool, mud was left there from day before and was not restocked. Understaffed for the amount of campers there. They advertise theme weekends but are not run well because of lack of staff. A lot of extra costs there including pay showers. It was a busy weekend but I have to report the pool was very dirty on the first day we arrived and it was not cleaned for the entire weekend. There is a stench of sewer around the pool and near the games arcade daily. There are many seasonal sites, but most sites are jammed in rows. Picnic table was rotten and we couldn't use it. Probably will not return. Disappointing as we had heard good things. Was not worth the $47 +tax per night. - Famoffive

They pride themselves on their clean washrooms, but that's where the perks end. This is an over-priced park with nothing for the kids. They have a jumping pillow and slip slide but rarely willing to turn them on. What's the point ? Waste of money in my opinion. - Caper1973

Sites were relatively level, but because they were not completely grassed there was a lot of dirt tracked into the trailer. The picnic tables were old and there were a lot of ants. They have some great concepts but some things require maintenance. The little wading pool was filthy and I would not let my toddler in it. The campground is quiet and the people friendly. - RiverStone

We stayed in this park for a month, Aug-Sept 2016, while visiting family nearby. It is a nice, lovely wooded, quiet park, with easy access to the HWY 101 and Rte 1.
We have a 35ft. Motorhome with tow dolly and had plenty of room to navigate the roads and our lot. The lots are nice sized with picnic tables and firepits. There is a decent playground and pool.
The owner is very nice and easy going. He keeps the park and the pool very clean.
The few permanent residents all have respectable, well maintained homes.
There is a very nice, short, deeply wooded, nature trail following a creek with small falls over mossy boulders which we enjoyed very much.
The laundry room has 2 washers and dryers, $2/$1.5o for 45 mins., only offering cold water wash. This is the only thing we didn't like about the park. We highly recommend this nice park and will stay again when in the area. - Jo and Bob

Located a short distance from the Highway, it is a heavily wooded campground. The access is down a short steep hill. Obviously most sites are seasonals. We had a back-in full service site that was easy to access for our 60' combined length. Lots of trees though, so take the corners easy and make sure you position the rig to miss the trees on the inside corner, especially at the far end. The site was level and services were well located and good quality. Interior roads are gravel and are OK, but have seen lots better. Not a bad campground, but rather rich for what they offer. Don't think we would return, unless the price dropped to a level commensurate with the quality. - Oriana

Rate shown for 30 amp site. Our site was a gravel and grass pull-through that required leveling. All hookups worked fine. There was enough room between the pull-through sites, but no privacy. Our table was next to our neighbours sewer outlet. However, this is a large park and some of the back-in sites nearby had more privacy. Lots of mature trees and a couple of trails off both A and B loops. Garbage had to be taken to the front of the campground near the entrance. No cable TV, but found 1 digital channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi worked well enough for e-mail and browsing. We would come here again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

Definitely family oriented, many children but so very quiet overnight, and grounds are kept very clean. Many residents gather in the evening for congenial campfire chats. 50 amp service and WiFi were both slightly overpowered at peak times, but a surge protector is invaluable in these situations when everyone needs A/C. Wonderful location as tour base. - B and B

Park is mostly catering to seasonal campers. The campsites for daily/weekly campers are varying in size. Don't bother asking which site or trying to reserve a site they will not tell you. Section B where we stayed is best suited for small trailers in the range of Popup campers or at the most a 19 to 23 foot trailer. The owners were putting 32 foot motor homes and 32 foot fifth wheels in spots not big enough to get in. I don't know what the travelers would have done if we had not been at our site to move our vehicles or guide them in. Fire pits are a few feet from your RV when you do get it in so you have no chance of enjoying all the amenities of camping. If you plan on staying connected to the electronic world while you are here do no rely on their "free internet" it is impossible to get on or stay connected to it. As for Television, there are 2 local digital channels available. We experienced issues with the power box tripping with only the AC and one other electrical appliance plugged in. My fifth wheel was drawing less than 20-25 amps at the time.
Our first stay here more than 10 years ago was much more accommodating and this will probably be the last time we go here. - Andrew Hampson

In typical Maritime fashion, we were met warmly. Arriving on a weekend, the campground was packed though quiet in the evening. The sites were very close together and mainly for this reason, we felt the park was overpriced. We were grateful to receive Passport America rate for weeknights. The location is easy to access. The sites are level gravel. WiFi was good. Showers cost $1.00! - rvbravo2

This is a very nice Provincial Park with fantastic views! There are trails down to view the beach during low tide and the tide fluxuates 40+/- feet twice each day. The hill going up to the campground is very steep so you need a good head start if pulling a heavy RV. They have wooded sites as well as open meadow sites. We were in site #74 which had an amazing view and I think it was the best in the park. Site #74 is supposed to accommodate an RV up to 30 feet long but you could easily put a larger one on it as long as you park parallel to the road. The only problem with this site is that it can get very windy up there, but the view is one you will not forget. Very nice folks run the park and the campground is very quiet and well maintained. The roads leading to the park are very rough but if you like "dry camping" and are in this area you should really try it out. I gave it a 9 only because the trails needed some attention but that could have been because we were there early in the season. - troutslayer

This was a very nice Passport America Park. The people at check-in were very friendly and they had one of their employees guide us to our site. The sites are wide and long enough to accommodate 45' rigs. Their is a gate access key which you pay a deposit for at check-in which is good for added security. The roads to the RV sites are dirt and it creates quite a bit of dust. We would definitely camp here again. - Larry Hamblin

We stayed for 2 nights in late September. The owner was very accommodating, helping us to level our camper using wood planks and giving us electricity (since he put us in a tent site and provided 20 amp service through a power cord). It was raining very hard but he took the time to make sure we were happy with our site and everything was working properly.
This is an isolated spot so not for someone looking for a lot of campground activities, shopping, etc. It is about 4 miles to Advocate Harbour, where there is a modest grocery store, gas / diesel, etc. There is also a fantastic restaurant there, called Wild Caraway. There is a restaurant / cafe right next to the campground, but it was closed when we were there.
The view is the draw here. Water comes up within 25' of your camper as it is right on the beach at the breakwall. This is home to the huge Fundy tides and it is very relaxing to just watch the tide come in and out. There is great beach walking when the tide is out and lots of fossils. Joggins Fossil Center is about 1 hour away up a road that at times, is not so good, but passable. - Cape Cod kayaker

Rate is Canadian $. What a unique campground where you can watch the Fundy tide rise to within feet of your campsite, visit the on-site lighthouse, and cook lobster from the "lobster lady" who lives nearby. Great location to visit attractions in this off-the-beaten-track area. The campground is bare-bones, but with E/W/S which all worked well. The owners and staff are very friendly and hard-working. Cell/data reception was excellent. It's just a fun place to be. - Mingo Papa

Not much for amenties, but what a great view! Would have been perfect if there hadn't been a fire ban. Wifi is good, once you actually connect to it. - MSSW

Beautiful ocean view. Sites were level. No sewer, but dump site was very accessible on the way out. Quiet and comfortable. Fire pits and private. Water smelled so could only wash dishes, would not even try to shower. Talked to other campers on other side of campground and they said their water was fine. Had to back in to site but was easy enough, lots of room. Overall a very nice campground. We would camp there again. - B G

We stayed with 3 other rigs over the Victoria Day weekend. This is a friendly campground and check in was easy. There are a number of seasonal sites, but they seem to have left the best ones for visitors. We had a good end site, with an unobstructed view of the Bay and a large grassy area in front of us. The site was of a decent size, although some were smaller, with a grassy surface. We did not use the washrooms but others in our group did and commented that they needed renovation. We could not get the WiFi at our site, although I understand it was accessible closer to the office and entrance. A nice place to stay. - The Pulfs

Friendly park. New campsites overlooking Bay of Fundy. Awesome views. Some seasonals, but well kept sites, even gardens. Close to Parrsboro and best seafood restaurant on the shore. Will stay again. - ORNS
Jul 2011 - $50.00
Overall not a bad campground. We stayed in a deluxe site which I strongly recommend unless you want to be in an open area with small children and dogs running everywhere. We stayed in deluxe site number 3. It was nice, although a little tight for getting out of when there were campers in the site next to us. A lot of the people in this campground are locals with seasonal sites. We were here for two nights while waiting for our house to close. Restrooms/showers were clean, the staff was helpful and friendly. I would give this resort a higher rating if we didn't have to watch out for unattended children and dogs as much when we were leaving the park each time to run into town for errands. - Always Glamping

Check-in staff was very friendly but young and inexperienced with big rigs. Site assigned was Not accessible to a 40 ft motorhome, so took another site. Fire rings are in the way for parking and exiting. 50 amp elect is good and water pressure is good. WiFi only works in office or parked right outside. Lots of kids on bikes but not noisey. Would stay here again. Rate is PassPort America. - XPPCo
Aug 2010 - $18.00
Level sites with good electric and water. Interior roads in good condition. A negative against the park would be their fire pits. The park digs this 8 to 10 inch deep hole,about three feet in diameter right where you have to back into the site or where you need to park your tow vehicle. Makes getting in and out of the site with a larger unit difficult. We would camp here again. The price reflects the rate for a Coast to Coast Good Neighbor Park, - corky506
