Rate is Canadian $. This is a beautiful, quiet, well-located base for exploring PEI. There is a pull-thru, full hookup area which looked nice, but we chose a spacious water/electric site overlooking the ocean with fantastic sunsets. The site was well-groomed grass, but required raising the front-end of our 40-ft motorhome with 6-inch blocks, which wasn't a problem for us. The A-F sites are much more level with better views. The 30-amp electric was strong. Cell/data reception was excellent. Dump station was easily accessible. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at Cabot Beach Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed a mini-performance at The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts in Summerdale. The nearby Ship-to-Shore Restaurant has outstanding seafood prepared in innovative ways for reasonable prices. Basin View Seafood has great, reasonable-priced cooked lobster.

This is a very nice provincial park with grassy sites and your choice of full, water/electric, or no service. We didn't use the facilities so can't tell you about them. The park was practically empty during our second week of September stay. While there are not a lot of amenities in this area, it was a good base to explore the northern shore of the island. If you want restaurants and stores, this one isn't for you without having to drive at least seven miles back into Kensington. There is no internet in the park; the closest is the parking lot of the Information Center at the old railroad depot in Kensington. There are nice walking trails in the park, play areas for kids, and the beach is easily within walking distance of the park. Cost reflects US$ at senior rate (no tax); $37.50/CAN with taxes. We camped at Cabot Beach Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Try to find a Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) if you want to hear some traditional Celtic or fiddle music. Just about any night of the week, during the season you can find music at one of the many community centers on the island. We truly enjoyed our nights at the Emerald Community Center and Stanley Bridge Hall.

We stayed at a serviced site in the main area but there is also serviced and unserviced sites overlooking the cove. The beach was the highlight here a five minute or so walk. There are kids programs here every day and ice cream for sale. The washrooms near us had been upgraded since our last visit and since we were using a phone card we found one of the few working payphones left at this location. As at all the PEI Provincial Parks the staff here are friendly and helpful. There is no Wi-fi. We camped at Cabot Beach Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Indian River Music Festival is close by in an old church. This is a must do if you like music.

This is a wide open grassed camp but the serviced sites are tightly clustered together and these sites are small. It is quite a long walk to washrooms and laundry which are old but generally clean. There are walking trails and beaches nearby. We camped at Cabot Beach Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed this park. We stayed here for 14 nights to get the 10% discount and were very glad we did. The lovely red sand beach was a very short walk away and we spent hours walking and exploring. The sites were large with lush grass. We were backed into an end site with evergreens on both sides and the back giving us a good bit of privacy. This location was perfect for exploring that end of PEI and we were within walking distance of Malpeque Bay and some of the finest oysters and mussels we had on PEI. We had one incident when a work camper did some damage to our RV with the lawn mower, but it was dealt with quickly and fairly by the manager. We highly recommend this Provincial Park. We camped at Cabot Beach Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Costs with senior discount about $24 for 2 way. Sites 105 unserviced some overlooking the sea. 32 sites 2 way and 33 sites 3 way on grass. This is the most popular and one of the largest parks in western PEI. In the summer they have activities for children and naturalists who give guided walks and talks. The campground has a laundromat, playground and supervised swimming (summer only) on a beautiful beach which is just a quick walk from the campground. There is an old one room school house that is used for children activities and an old lighthouse on the path just before you head to the beach. The red color of the beach and cliffs are stunning. Since we were here after Labor Day there were only about ten tents and campers camping. This park closes about two weeks after Labor Day so always check the opening and closing dates for PEI parks if you plan to camp on the island in the spring or early Fall. The bathrooms could use an updating as we have found in most of these parks but the workers at the parks keep them as clean as possible. We drove from here to the National Park on the north shore near Cavendish! We camped at Cabot Beach Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

The only reason we would not rate Cabot Park a 10 is because we are reluctant to share one of our favorite places. For any camper wishing to experience PEI, there is no better destination. The park is wonderful. Pet friendly, kid friendly, large-rig friendly, retiree friendly you cannot go wrong at this provincial park. Whether you seek a small motorhome-village mix of regulars and travelers or a remote tent site on a bluff overlooking beautiful Malpeque Bay, you will find the right site at Cabot Park. Most points of interest on PEI are within a 45 minute drive of the park. Did I mention the beach? Or the old school house converted to ice cream scoop shop? Or the arts and crafts building for the kids? Or the concerts at the gazebo? Or the fresh sea food available at the dock next door? Ssshh... I don't want to let the secret out of the bag. We camped at Cabot Beach Provincial Park in a Motorhome.
