11 RV Parks near Murray River, Prince Edward Island
Aug 2017 - $24.00
Not big rig convenient. We were in a 35 foot class A. IMHO that is the max Class A size. Cannot really park Class anything with slides on the lower level by the river - lots too narrow (we did see one RV with one side of slides out and it was tight). We parked on the upper level (drive in, back out). We were the only Class A there when we visited. If you want a no frills, no thrills, quiet and restful RV park this is the place. Internet is slow and phone service is adequate.
If you are arriving in a Class A (35 feet or shorter) when you make your reservation make sure to specify upper level and that they reserve you a spot. The sites are first come first served. If we showed up and the few (4-5) sites on the upper level were taken we would have had to go elsewhere. - AeroDoc

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

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

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

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

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

This campground is big rig friendly. Wide open with no low hanging branches if you request not to park in the trees. We did ask to be in the trees and had no problem with limbs or branches. There is a wide open area just past the check-in office that has a view of the lake. Real nice place, we would come and stay again. Lots to see and do in the area and the staff was very helpful with activities in the area. Also, a golf course is right next door. Gravel pads and driveway, 30 and 50 amp with sewer. - DonGott

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

Small friendly campground adjacent to a very challenging 9 hole golf course which has lots of up and down fairways with many wonderful water views over the Northumberland Strait. Large pull through, although small signs for site numbers and need to drive over grass entering/exiting campsites. Sites are gravel. Will definitely stay again. - pwaygood

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

Caribou-Munroes is a lovely provincial park campground situated on a stretch of beautiful sandy beach on the Northumberland Shore - I think the beach is about 3 km long. All sites are unserviced; i.e., no water or electric, and generator hours are 10am to 8pm. There is a single dump station with a hose for doing a black tank flush. Loop A is open and has the best views of the water. The other loops are wooded or partially wooded. Most, if not all, sites have fire pits. Wood and ice are available ($). The washrooms are very clean and there are free hot showers but no laundry facilities. There is free Wi-Fi available in a covered area with electric outlets next to the office. The campground is easily accessible from the PEI ferry and the town of Pictou, complete with a Sobeys, Home Hardware, and Tims, etc. There is a gas station with diesel a few km from the park entrance. If you like relaxing on one of the nicest beaches in Nova Scotia, this is the park for you. - driftdiver1

We generally visit in the off season and always receive a water view site. Great birding campground including Eagles, osprey, ducks, geese, herons and shorebirds. Sites are level and owner ensures all guests are satisfied. He also helps with any issues even with rv's. The owner has a fantastic memory and knows all his guests well. When we called for a site he told us the site we had 2 years prior was open so set up and "I'll see you later". We had a visitor who he had met 18 years prior and he remembered the name. In my view there is no finer operator in Canada or US and we have visited approx. 81 parks in last 5 months and approx. 300 in past 3 years. Good book exchange, laundry and firewood was free. Good wifi. - camperme

Park caters to full time seasonal campers, I'd estimate that 80%+ of the sites are occupied by full timers leaving few sites for transient campers. I stayed one night while repositioning from Cape Breton to Bay of Fundy. Had waterfront site which had nice views of the waterway. Note there is a paper mill across the bay and can be smelled at the campsite depending on wind direction. Restrooms/showers were adequate but a little rustic and outdated. Private beach was nice for a short walk. - Wdeertz

This CG is huge and almost entirely seasonals--at least when we were there in late Sept. That said, it is excellent. The seasonals are all neat and clean. The wifi is excellent, the sites are very level and nicely spaced. It is only 5, or so, kms from Pictou. At the back of the CG, there is a path to the beach--to the right is a nice beach walk of about a mile. Don't miss the Balmoral Mills grist mill--about a half hour from Pictou. - hudsonguy

We made reservations. Pulled in, young girl at desk. Asked at the time if back in that we were assigned was large enough for our 35 ft. 5 th wheel. She said she was sure we could get in. It only took 1/2 hour - after we had someone move their vehicle, have the neighbors behind us pull in their awning, move picnic table and the fire container which was full of stinky trash. Then, the spot is so uneven we had to lower our front Jack's as far as they would go to get "somewhat" level. Oh, and this great spot was $50 per night! Wouldn't recommend. - Jaspar-SandJ

We stayed here off season but it was a Friday night, which might have been a mistake. There are a lot of seasonal trailers here and apparently folks come here for the weekend to party. Quiet time isn't until midnight! Even with that, we heard people much later. They also have pay showers which is annoying. I'd rather pay a few dollars more in the daily rate then have to dig out coins to take a shower. - Cape Cod kayaker

Wonderful views of the Northumberland Strait between Nova Scotia & PEI. Beach access was great and beach was very clean. Quiet and serene. Loved it and would return again. - SharonO
