This is probably the best RV park we've stayed in all summer! Although we are not traveling with kids, this is an amazing place for families! So much going on: hayrides, games, free movies every afternoon/evening, more than I can describe.

And the location is fantastic. Many of the spots are right on the water, or so near you have a great view. Tent spots that overlook the Gulf of St. Lawrence (spot S19). I cannot say enough good things about this place. We would definitely come back! We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Great view of the ocean, excellent lots and the best pedestal I have ever used. There is some wind, as others have mentioned, so be prepared for that. Not a great place to put out an awning, if you follow. Very few Americans, which was a bit different and surprising given the size of the park. It is immense. The store is well stocked and large. One annoying issue we had, which irked me, was that when we went to buy items they often would take our American Dollars and not give us the exchange rate. For example, went to buy wood, which was listed at $6 Canadian, gave them $6 American and they just said thanks and closed the door. Given the exchange rate is nearly 30% at the time, it was just not cool. Happened once in the store as well. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Motorhome.

We were about 30 min. from Cavendish (Anne of Green Gables). We were 1 hr from Charlottetown which had a nice farmers market and shops/restaurants downtown. Try the PEI potatoes they are wonderful!!!

This is a HUGE campground, but sites are not at all cramped. Sites are large and grassy. Beautiful views, especially the sunsets! The beaches seem to go on forever and the water was much warmer that I expected. Didn't spend much time on the beach though because the temperature was cooler than normal for that time of year (our max temp was 74) and it was painfully windy. Wifi was virtually nonexistent and they will only give you one login code - if you have more than one device you have to pay for additional codes. Beautiful campground but I couldn't rate it higher because of the lack of cable, swimming pool, and poor wifi. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Great location, you can do everything in PEI from here. Great views. Staff were great here. They were having a new wifi system installed they were having problems with; they offered me to use their private WiFi in the office while it was being fixed. We used our Passport America discount here, great value. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

CG is huge, mostly seasonal, plenty for kids to do. However, the new section down by the bay is open, sites wide, grass, not particularly level. Water good, 50amp good, internet virtually non-existent. However, Prince Edward Island is beautiful, especially motorcycle riding. We would stay again. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. With PEI being on the small side it is easy to see people from all over the island. We stayed 4 nights here in the new section overlooking the tidal bay. Beautiful view with good solid 50 amp service. The WIFI service did not reach to these new sites as yet. Staff were excellent and park had a great checking process and gate cards, etc. We would stay here again. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is by far the most beautiful I've seen. There are so many things to do. From shuffleboard, chocolate bar bingo, golf to the more recent technology computers, and a movie theater. Stunning beaches and friendly customer service. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Tent.

Can't say enough about this campground, it is by far one of the premier campgrounds in the Maritimes. Beautiful beach, great sites and tons of activities for kids. A little slice of paradise. Love that you can book the same site for the following year when you check out. We did and can't wait for next season! The only negative about Twin Shores is that it spoils you for other campgrounds!!! Adding a pool would be perfection!!! We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

This a fabulous park to stay in. It has been seven years since we last stayed here. There have been many changes, all for the good. Very friendly staff and very clean park. It was Halloween weekend and they did a lot of things for the kids and adults. They had a haunted house that was amazing. The volunteers are wonderful to help put this on. The beaches are great and very clean. Beautiful campground and one of the best I've ever stayed in. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.

This is a huge campground. There are plenty of activities to keep everyone busy. Our site was long and level, although somewhat narrow. Not so much that we couldn't have opened our awnings, it was too windy to do that. Wi-Fi was the best we have encountered in Canada. Television reception is good, but limited in viewing options. We would come back here in a heartbeat if in the area. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Motorhome.

This was a nice campground, with great amenities and facilites, but it was way too busy! There just seemed to be children everywhere, and almost every site seemed to have a dog on it, who was constantly barking. We had a beautiful big site, but it was right next to the main road, so there was traffic and noise all day. However, at night the kids all seemed to go back to their sites, and there was excellent security for noise control. The site across from us was loud, and had music blaring and loud laughing after 11 pm and the staff was there several times to make them quiet down, which was great and ensure that all dogs were inside. It was great having a beach within walking distance. The beach was great, and it was so nice to not have to pay to get in and to be able to just walk back to our trailer for meals or a break. They had a large playground that our kids loved. They were short on bathrooms, and it was quite a walk to get to one, which was not good in the middle of night with a toddler. I would recommend this campground, just ask for a site not close to the road and be aware that there are a lot of people and the sites are very close together. There were lots of activities and even had a restaurant in the main store, and a snack bar at the beach, which was a bit overpriced. There was a coffee shop and gym, but we didn't go to either one. Sites were nice and grassy with trees along the edge and very level. The first site we were given though had hookups way in the back corner and we would not have been able to reach our lines to them without our door facing the wrong way, so we had to switch sites. The staff was very friendly and gave us a list of available sites and let us pick our own. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Tent Trailer.

This was a fantastic site. The staff was friendly at check in and very helpful. The site we had was an ocean view just steps from the beach. Very beautiful and relaxing. Both beaches were clean. Would go back again in a heartbeat. We camped at Twin Shores Camping Area in a Travel Trailer.
