9 Parks near Gaspereaux, Prince Edward Island
Aug 2010 - $26.00
Gaspereaux, PEI 42 sites unserviced or 2 way. Site 33 facing the Bay. $25.00. This is one of the most popular parks in PEI during the summer months. We camped here the last day it was open in September. They actually had us move since they closed a day earlier than posted. The beach here is beautiful – one of the best in PEI. The causeway that one can drive to go to the lighthouse has the beach on the east side and St. Marys Bay on the other side. Sand dunes, birds and long stretches of shoreline make this a picture taking haven. The campground faces the woods and the Bay and is a short walk, bike ride or drive to the beach. As is typical of the Provincial Parks in PEI they offer electric, water, showers, playground, kitchen shelters, dumping stations and plenty of children activities during July and August. There is also a scenic viewing tower. This park is also the site for the First Nations People annual Pow Wow. It attracts visitors from all over in the summer. The Pow Wow offers native crafts, healing sweat tent, drum bands etc. In the months of July and August reservations would be suggested. - gsnakehill

Beautiful view of the bay from the waterfront sites! Also, sites were grassy and fairly level. Not much of a beach for walking, but fun to watch birds fishing. I was here when the campground was pretty empty, but I can see that it would be very tight when all sites were full because there is not much distance between sites. Close waterfront sites would also block the view of the units in the second row. Very good Rogers cell connection and also very good WiFi, although I am not sure it would be so good if there had been more users. Very nice couple who own the park. I had no power problems, but that also might be more of a problem when it was full. - judy_online

Full hook-up waterfront site. Beautiful view of Murray Harbour. Very good WiFi, 4 over the air TV stations. Wonderful, friendly, helpful owners who have only had the campground for a little over a year and are making regular improvements to the facility. Power was only 30 amp and somewhat weak. Owner is working to upgrade the 50 amp which is basically non-existent (he stated that we could try it but he didn't think it would work well and it didn't). Our only complaint was that we had 2 locals families, one on either side of us who would travel back and forth between their sites across ours. Many locals come here for their weekend outings. - Bob & Stephanie

We were here last year and enjoyed it so much that we came back for the entire summer. The price cited is for a monthly stay in a full-hookup site. The owners continue to improve the park. This year's major upgrade is a heat pump to heat the pool since the solar energy system didn't get it warm enough. The park continues to have excellent wifi, download speeds of ~15 Mbps most of the time. There are a ton of kids around and lots of campfires; if you don't like both of those this isn't the park for you. But if you are looking for a family-friendly RV park this place is ideal. About the only negative is that the power grid voltage varies quite a bit and can drop down fairly low at times. I invested in an automatic transformer to raise the voltage and that solved the problem. - docj

Stayed for 3 nights to explore eastern PEI. Lots to see and do around.
Site was large and separated from others with trees/bushes.
Wifi was spotty at best.
We would stay here again. - DCM/JMB

Very nice, quiet park. Very near good food and good biking on the Confederation Trail. Our site was barely large enough for 35' MH but we made it. There were only a couple of sites that would take a larger unit. Many were seasonal campers in travel trailers or fifth wheelers. Everyone was quiet and respectful. Wifi was available at about $5/ day. We did not use it but reception was very good. Actually, the antennae was right at our site. FREE wifi is available at Georgetown library. If you catch them open, the will give you access for the time of your stay so you can park in front of the library to use 24 hours a day. Really nice lady in charge and she was a big help. Gate is manned 24 hours and all the attendants seemed very helpful. . We would stay there again if in this area of PEI. It is quiet and quaint but not our favorite. My rating was 7 for MH due to tight sites. Would be an 8 for other vehicles. - jubilee32

We selected this park because it was a good location for exploring this end of PEI. This park is noted for it's golf and horseback riding. There are a number of pull through sites out in the open, but we were in one of two new larger sites back in the wooded area. It was not very level and uphill, but automatic levelers helped. The site was dirt and when it rained, the dirt ran down into the patio area making the site very dirty. We loved the privacy though. The laundry was very nice and the staff friendly. We did enjoy the location, which put us very close to Montague for library Wi-Fi and shopping. Most anything we wanted to do was a short drive away. - fulltime birders

We parked in site 16, which allowed us to park facing the river with a great view. Our neighbor in site 15 was hooked up to our power pedestal because his didn't have power. Thankfully, I had a 30 amp 25 ft. extension cord and was able to hook up to site 17's pedestal. This meant that site 17 couldn't be used by anyone else. Several attempts to locate the owner were unsuccessful that evening. Voltage was stable and adequate.
Site was fairly level and it was easy to level the coach.
Even with the power hook up problem, we would stay here again. Price and a great view more than atone for a minor hook up problem. - Lakewood90

Nice small park right on the Murray River. Quiet & well located for exploring the Eastern side of PEI. Highly recommend this campground. - Pamnken

Very nice small park on the river. Good WiFi and utilities. Directv worked good also. Parked facing the river and it was very nice and quiet. Staff was very nice. Good location to visit the area and close to the Nova Scotia ferry. We would definitely stay here again. - RayN

As previous reviewers reported, this is a gem of a little campground. The total number of sites listed (26) is made up mostly of cottages and tent sites. I counted only about a half-dozen RV sites. Although the facility is right in town, it is surprisingly quiet. It sits on a ridge overlooking the town marina, and is convenient to shopping and the local sights. The only negative occurred when checking in. I pulled into the driveway which provides access to the cottages, motel, and RV sites, but getting to the RV sites required driving through a very narrow parking area in front of the motel. Barely enough room to squeeze through. Also, the 2012 season may be the last for this campground. The owner is planning to break ground for a hotel on the property in September, and that will mean closing the campground to make room for a parking lot. - DrLewie

If there were a higher rating than an 10 I would have given it. As the previous review stated this is truly a gem. The Montague Harbor is within view and a branch of the Confederate Trail is 50 yards away. It is centrally located so you can drive less than 100 miles and see the entire eastern shoreline of Prince Edward Island. We've been traveling Atlantic Canada all summer and this is the nicest place we've stayed. If only it weren't so far from Texas. - PRG

Found a little jewel while searching for a place to stay for a 12-night vacation in PEI. I was not disappointed in Lane's Cottages. Mostly cottages, but they have 5 level concrete pads for RVers with FHU. Unfortunately, while installing the concrete pads, the cables for the cable TV were cut in the process, but cable is still available at some sites. Mention it to them and they will do everything they can to make sure it's available for you when you arrive. The price quoted to me ($32/night) included cable and their Wi-Fi service. Montague itself if a little bit away from the main city of Charlottetown, and far from the most 'touristy' area of the island (Cavendish), but it has it's little town charm, peace and quiet while still having easy access to groceries and all the necessities you need. On-site ice-cream shop and direct access to an incredible bike/walking trail. There is also a marina directly below the property for those who like to kayak/canoe or bring your own boat. Overall, a perfect place to spend a peaceful vacation on PEI. - diehard

The park is a few minutes drive to the Ferry from Prince Edward Island to Nova Scotia. It is on the ocean and has shady and sunny sites. Very pleasant and reasonably priced. The sites are very large with lots of room for the biggest mh or trailer. We will return again, and regularly. - camperme

Provincial park with large sites nicely spaced apart and separated by bushes/trees.
We stayed here mainly to be close to ferry to Nova Scotia.
Our third provincial park on PEI. Interestingly this one did not have wifi where other PPs do. - DCM/JMB

Great campground, our site was a little oddly shaped, but it worked. It was a short walk to an amazing view of the Northumberland Straight and a beautiful beach. We would definitely stay here again. - CokeCacher

Although I booked this park through Provincial Parks of PEI on line it is actually now a private campground called, officially, Belfast Highlands Green and Lord Selkirk Park. We were here during the Highland Games (no admission fee for campers) and it was very busy. We were in the lower area, 15 amp and water and not too level but right on Orwell Cove a globally recognized conservation area. Some noise at night from the unserviced area below us otherwise a nice stay. Wifi available at a few hotspots but best in the reception area that doubles for the nine hole golf course and the campgrounds. The washrooms though clean need updating. - Ron and Lynda

I thoroughly enjoyed this peaceful place with magnificant sunsets, but I missed my Wi-Fi. It was a wide space and extremely long, but there wasn't much beyond that to talk about in my journal. Perhaps if I were a golfer, ahhh, there you go. Golfers will love this place! - Itsy

This campground is on a hillside overlooking the bay and a golf course. The tent sites overlooking the bay are beautiful. This area of PEI was settled by the Irish and Scots so the park in the summer hosts many activities with a Celtic flair. Musical performances by local artists and entertainers are in the open hall situated in the middle of the campground many nights in the summer. One can enjoy the music while looking out over the red cliffs and the bay. If you had a tent site you can just sit in your campsite and enjoy the show. There is a beach where some go clam digging,no swimming allowed but it is a stroll from the campsites. A swimming pool and miniature golf are also within the campground. Next to the campground is the Provincial Park’s 9 hole Belfast Highland Greens golf curse. It is beautiful! This park also hosts the the Annual Highland Games which include dance competitions, bagpipe and fiddle music and typical Irish sporting games. We were there two days before they were closing for the season Sept 12 so only one washroom was available and most of the picnic tables were put away. If you have a self contained unit they will let you come in and stay the night after the closing dates but no services or rest rooms will be available. - gsnakehill

We first went to the back where the office sent us. There are a lot of junkers there. We moved up to the front of the campground and it felt better. The back of the campground leads right onto the cycling Confederation Trail. The lots are set up weird....some horizontally and are uneven. Still it was okay. - Tworetired
Aug 2014 - $27.00
Rate shown is seniors discount. Our site was a grass back-in that required leveling due to downslope at the back and tree roots. Hookups are shared. Only a few have 50 amps. Ours was a 30 amp. and all hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but found 1 digital channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi was a hot spot near the office. Wi-Fi signal strong, but lack of bandwidth slowed internet access down. I would probably look around for another campground next time as I get tired of getting all the leveling boards out. - Onemoretrail

The campground overlooks the ocean, with splendid views from every campsite. It is full service (water, sewer, electricity) and the beach walks can be lengthy and terrific. There was little people pressure before July 1, so we camped with considerable privacy. The NE corner of the province has many enjoyable sights to see, from lobster at the Souris Lobster Shack to beach walks in the Greenwich section of the national park. Do visit the lighthouse at the NE corner of the province. - User2435

Rate shown was seniors discount. Our site was at the top of the hill with a spectacular view of the ocean. The site was a grass pull-through that was very unlevel. It seems that many of the campgrounds in the Maritimes have grass campsites and I haven't seen one yet that was level. All hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but found 2 networks on the antenna. Satellite would have worked at our site (#98) as it was a large and open site. No Wi-Fi either. There is access to a beach and some playground equipment. We would stay here again. - Onemoretrail

58 3 way sites, 20 2 way sites, and 39 unserviced. Costs around $16. Site 9 right on the cliff. Typical PEI Provincial Park with shelters, fire pits, playgrounds and dumping station. Activities in the summer. The beach here is one of the best in PEI – white sand and it just goes and goes and goes with the red cliffs beside it. Some sites are right on the cliff but all sites have a view of the ocean and some of the beach. All sites are on a hill -the new 3 way sites are level and have gravel but they are way back on top of the hill (views are great, too) the others are on grass but you can get level and only the unserviced sites are a little wooded but the views and the beach are just stunning. I think my favorite campground in PEI but they all have something different so it is hard to choose. Not many campers at this time of year and the campground is closing this weekend. PEI uses students to help run their parks and that is one reason that they close so early plus some nights there are only about 4 campers during the week at some of these Provincial Parks. Our first night here there were over 14 campers for the night and the second night most of them pulled out. We were there for two nights but it is a good place to stay for a few days or just for an overnight when touring PEI. Close to Souris, all the great beaches in the area, the ferry to Madeleine and the East Point Lighthouse. If you are lucky you will see seals swim by like we did and even some whales. - gsnakehill
