13 Parks near Port Hill, Prince Edward Island
Sep 2010 - $26.00
Green Provincial Park, near Port Hill on the north shore. Sites 56 some full service and about half unserviced. Cost about $26. This park has a river to swim in, Frisbee golf, nature trails, playground and showers. This is an older park and it looks like they put the hookups in after – the electric, water and sewer hookups are not right on site but in the middle with at least four sites sharing. It is kind of strange so that we could not do it in the first site that they gave us and had to move. The woman at the ranger station was very nice at check in and told us we could move if we had too. Since this was during the week – it was not crowded and they do close for the season after Labor Day. We biked around the park and the river is nice for swimming with a shaded picnic area. The unserviced sites along the river are very nice and there are some that an RV could easily back into too. These sites have great views, their own swimming area and are within walking distance of a playground, refuse area, bathroom, showers and fields to play in. There are also nature trails for hiking and the Shipyard Museum to visit. It was a good stopover for one night! - gsnakehill

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. - Mingo Papa

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. - DiplomatTraveler

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. - Ron and Lynda

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! - Florida Honey

This campground had lots to offer, dog park, beach, arcade, movie theater, store, coffee shop, tennis court, driving range, activities for kids. The rv sites were spacious. - 4RollingGs

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. - Bonnie66

Nice Ocean Views.
We enjoyed our stay at this provincial park; it allowed us to explore PEI as well as enjoy the nice water views from the campground. Based upon our desired length of stay, I selected what appeared to be the best available site (which we enjoyed). Sites are a little closer than we would prefer, given there is no privacy between the sites. However, the sites are better spaced than at many campgrounds and most campers were quiet and respectful of their neighbors. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

Washrooms were very clean. park was clean and it was ocean front. The park was a little difficult to find however was worth the drive. - camperme

This was our fourth straight year at Linkletter and it is our favorite of all the Provincial Parks on the Island. Here are the cons- no WIFI, interior roads bumpy, field does not drain well after rain, mostly 20 amp service. Here are the pros- cleanest and best kept washrooms, level sites, laundry for a dollar a wash and a dollar a dry, excellent view, quiet and most of all it's the staff to a person they get it..friendly and number one in customer service! The campground is gated and manned 24hours a day. - Ron and Lynda

Nice RV park right on Malpeque Bay. Our site was level and utilities were good. Office staff was very nice and although the office was not open very often the staff always answered the phone when I called and were very helpful with any questions. Wifi worked good but they were changing the wifi service as we were leaving so you may want to check on it. Roads were OK. A little bumpy but not bad. - RayN

We were there on a weekend so no discount. Pool out of action due to bad winter storms last season. They have extras running like movies for kids in the evening. Carts kids can hire. Lots of badly behaved kids running around. Site was a little boggy. Close to all things Anne. Don't think I'd stay there again for full price. - kiwitravelers
Aug 2014 - $30.00
Rate reflects 7 day discount and Good Sam Discount. Stayed on ocean front sites. Long, but extremely narrow sites. Barely enough room for slideout and awning. Some trailers could not open awnings. WIFI was really really poor. Consider it non-existant. Staff weren't overly friendly, but not rude either. Many campers were there short term only. Laundry was $2 a load, and the dryer was $0.25 per 7 mins. Overall, the campground looked a little run-down. We probably would not camp here again. - bornTOcamp

We were assigned a FHU site with services located in the middle of 3 campsites - we each had 120 degrees of the circle around the facilities. Not a problem, just a different layout.
Check in staff were pleasant.
Wifi at this, the first of 3 PEI prov. parks we stayed at, was EXCELLENT. - DCM/JMB

"A narrow, dirt road through the park gave adequate access for our 37' MH to our incredibly large, reasonably level, grassy site (#32) complete with picnic table and fire ring. Although we didn't really have significant shade, a couple of large trees were a nice touch. There were only a few other campers in the park, so the very large grassy expanse surrounded by tall evergreen trees felt a bit like our own private park. :)
Our friendly ""neighbors"" were nearby on the next site due to shared posts for the water and electric hookups which we both used, but we were parked with our doors facing away from each other so it did not feel overly close. There was no sewer hookup on site.
We didn't use the available toilet and shower facilities. There were no WiFi nor laundry facilities available.
Overall, the park seemed a decent value at this price for the amentities offered." - DaveInOhio

The sites are big, as mentioned. We were in site 50, plenty big for a big rig. Having never been to a park with this kind of set up, we were a little (ok, a lot) confused as to how to park. They are set in a triangle with each site being a pull through. The sites were level, and grassy. It was what I expected a provincial park to be like. We would stay here again, as long as we didn't need Wi-Fi. - Soos

This is not at near the top in our opinion of Provincial Parks on the Island but nevertheless it is a good place to stay. We had a two-way site very close to the beach. Once again we found the staff great and there was a mix-up on our reservation but they were very apologetic and it was really no big deal. This is a great spot for birding, the beach gets better as you move further away from the supervised area. The campground edge is lined by large rocks to hopefully stop the erosion. The washrooms need an update for sure. The sites are mostly open but large enough for our motorhome (22 feet). - Ron and Lynda

End of season so few campers, they are fixing to pave with asphalt a dirt road section in the by the sea section. Other areas gravel surfaced road and sites. Lots of grass sites. Bathroom clean, white painted plywood; very basic, but hot water. O.K. for an overnight stay. The ocean has lots of seaweed on the beach and the red clay/gritty sand is not attractive for getting in the water for my taste. The seaweed is actually harvested commercially for food and cosmetic product use. Campground has a beautiful view of the ocean though. Few miles north is the interesting windmill turbine hydrogen research facility with a very 1st class restaurant well worth your while. - 210jem

Jacques Cartier Provincial Park, near Alberton, PEI - $26 for 3 way. Site 6 Total Sites: unserviced 21 and 36 two way and three way. Jacques Cartier built a nice hard gravel 3 way section in their previous overflow area. This was the first year that they had this section and there are problems with the water that they are working on and expect this problem to be fixed by next year. You can use the water but not cook or drink with it at this time so anyone in this section you can get bottled water and jugs from the rangers. We were given a lot of bottles and jugs of water but we also could get the water from the other sites in the tenting area next to us. The rangers are very nice and it seems that there is a ranger or rangers on duty 24 hours a day. This park has a playground, tons of activities and naturalist led nature walks in the summer and a long beautiful beach. It is cooler up here on the bay then on the south coast and firewood may be purchased here for $4.00 for a huge bundle. Again a laundromat, kitchen shelters and dumping station are available as they are in all PEI Provincial Parks. This was a good stop over Labor Day Weekend and to ride out Hurricane Earl here. The rangers checked often driving around and stopping to check to see if the 6 campers that were here were fine before, during and after the storm. Also, all PEI Provincial Parks had a pay phone at the ranger station that those traveling from the USA or other countries can use with a phone card which can be bought in town to call home. - gsnakehill

We were at Cavendish over Labor Day weekend. We anticipated that it would be full and there were a lot of folks in the tent camping area, but the serviced area was nearly empty. We had empty spaces next to us the whole time we were here. The sites were long with plenty of room to park the tow vehicle either in front or behind. The site (A25) was quite level and nice woods around.
Negatives: the signs indicate that you are to pull into a parking lot while you register. the parking lot is about 50' wide and maybe 75' long. When we got here, there were already other motorhomes parked, so we pulled past them all, but getting a 43' motorhome turned around in a 50' space with other vehicles around was "interesting."
The other negative was how much poison ivy was growing around the campground and right next to our site. I guess it is "natural" so not advised to kill it, but it was annoying to have to be so careful to avoid it and make sure our pets avoided it too so we wouldn't get the oils on us from them. - pattic777

This big (200 spaces) national campground is laid out in fairly dense forest, with pretty tight spaces (couldn't extend our awning more than about 3') and adjacent to the white sand beach. Access to the beach is easy, as are the shower facilities; several good hike/bike trails throughout; fire hose stations set about the campground. Great place to stay while visiting all the Green Gables attractions and the St. Lawrence Gulf area. Free access in over the international peace bridge, about $15/axel to get back across! - North Texas DJC

Awesome site right on the beach. Easy access to great biking trails. Restrooms were very modern with free clean showers. - tschryer83

Very large campground that is broken into many areas. We found the campground to be clean and well maintained. The campground is close to many of the attractions in the Cavendish Area. We stayed in section F which is a large open field. There is no bathrooms or showers in this section of the campground. Many of the tree lined sites do not have 3-way hook-ups. Our first site #37 was not very level. No matter which way I put our 30 foot trailer, I could not get it leveled. I went back to the office and asked for a different site and they gave me 3 other sites to pick from. So ended up picking site 30. This site was all grass and was level for the most part.
The way the sites are positioned, you are sharing a post with your neighbor, leaving the other side (door) facing your neighbors site. There is little to no privacy. The hook-ups were in the middle of the site and were easily accessed. I needed all of 2 hoses to reach the sewer. Power was sufficient as was the water pressure. The site did have cable but you need to have a coupler in order to use their cable. We did not have one!
It appears that open camping is the norm in PEI for larger trailers and big rigs. Many of the other campgrounds appear to be out in the open as well. The campground has a rec. hall and pool. We did not use the pool as it was often filled with kids. - clw_man

Huge park set up in numerous circles which makes it feel like a small park. Some are heavily treed and some are tree lined open meadows. Great kids play areas and large playing fields. Large heated pool. We had 3 services with 50 AMP elect. Free WiFi but even with park 70% empty, we find it is definitely NOT great. Water pressure was good. Very large and long sites great for big rigs. Sites are grass with picnic table and fire ring. Large clean bathhouses with lots of hot water and at no charge. - JanneC

We booked a specific site before we left only to discover they had moved us to a different, smaller site when we got there because some other campers wanted to be grouped together. After getting setup we spoke to our neighbors who told us they had asked for the site we were on because they had family staying in the campground and they wanted to be together and they were told they could not be grouped together. The bathrooms were not very clean and needed a major update and re-plumbing. Overall this campground is starting to show its age and is starting to get rundown. - CokeCacher

This campground has 20 unserviced sites and 40 sites that are 2 way! The serviced sites are right next to the beach but right next to each other. If you are tenting there is more privacy and larger sites. The bathrooms and showers are clean and there is a laundromat. Most Provincial Parks have laundromats. There is a field to play in, volleyball nets and boardwalks to the beach, along the dunes and over to the lighthouse, inn, gift shop and museum. The lighthouse is an easy walk to get too. There are miles and miles of beaches here but the beaches are rocky and windy. This campground you need reservations for to get serviced sites. It is very popular with those who live on the island and some sites it looked like someone stayed for the summer. We pulled in on Thursday before Labor Day with reservations for two nights and there were only a few sites left that were serviced. I am sure that by tomorrow there will be none but with the hurricane coming it might change some plans for local campers. Most of the Provincial Parks on PEI have pay phones at the check in booth and international phone cards can be purchased at local stores and some gas stations. Everyone is very friendly considering hot hot and humid this week has been. - gsnakehill

Cedar Dunes is sited directly on the ocean (Northumberland Strait) and the 2-way (W&E) sites 21 to 40 or so are almost directly on the beach--a few feet of grass and then you are in the sand. The hook-ups are set between pairs of sites so that one RV has to back in and the other pull in frontwards. There is sufficient room to pull into the site, unhook, and extract the tow vehicle, but it is close. The view into the strait is extraordinary and this location is a perfect starting place for touring the western end of PEI. Our only complaints are that the sites are rather close together, and there are quite a few seasonal campers whose rigs tended to be old and the sites overgrown and filled with "stuff." The overall beauty of the area makes us rate this park a 9 in spite of the complaints. If you camp in a tent, most of the tent sites have lots of trees and are across a grassy field from the serviced sites (Canadian term) - Ron & Sandy
