We camped here at the end of the season, so the campground was not as crowded as during the summer. This is a family friendly campground, not an RV resort. Sites are small, gravel pad on grass site with just enough room for a picnic table and fire ring. Most of the park are seasonals who are friendly, as is the staff. The main attraction of the park is the beach, and on summer weekends the park is full of families wanting to enjoy the beach. We are retired, so can plan to come at less crowded times. This time was the weekend when the seasonals close up, so there was some activity, nice to see neighbours helping each other. There were only a few transient visitors - two of them extended their stay to take advantage of some exceptional weather. There is a lobster supper restaurant just off the grounds, fresh lobster, but a bit pricey. The rate we paid was Passport America. We will come again next season.
We enjoyed our stay here! There are a good number of seasonal campers, but they were friendly, as was the staff. The park is very clean and well maintained. Sites are on grass, but very level. Our site was open, although the tenting area is treed, as is the seasonal area. There is a large open no service area suitable for rallies, etc. Evangeline Beach is right there, very interesting to see the range of tides and shore birds. Wi-Fi is available, but not at our site. But it is very pleasant to sit by the pool or in the playground and use the Internet. Price reflects 10% Good Sam discount.
The only thing going for this park is the view, which is beautiful open ocean, and an interesting walk around sea caves or along the shore. Gold panning pans can be rented at the office. Access is via a 1 km unpaved dusty road, so you will want your next stop to be where you can wash your rig. Sites are grass, with picnic tables and fire rings. Very nice to toast marshmallows while overlooking the ocean. Staff was OK, but disinterested, just doing their job. There is a small store with T-shirts etc. plus a few grocery items. No prices on the articles, but a small can of propane available at Canadian Tire for just a few dollars cost $9. Showers/washrooms are clean, but that's all that can be said. The petting zoo (a few chickens, a bunny, some goats and a pig) kept my brother's 7 year old grand-daughter amused. There is a nice pool, but only open at noon to 5 pm, so if you are leaving in the morning there is no swim time as checkout is 11, and check-in 1 pm. This means if it is a good day for walking around the caves etc., you will not get to use the pool. My brother likes to stand up paddle board, and he got a good paddle in as the water was calm the day we were there, and the tide was right for going right into the caves. We will not go again, no need, we've seen it, and not worth it. Prices are about $20 too high across the board. For $60 you can do much better! If not for the location, the park would be a '2'.
We enjoyed our stay here. The owners were enthusiastic and helpful. We almost didn't choose this park due to a couple of negative reviews, but we are glad we did. Some notes: The is a campground, not an RV resort. So yes, there are kids and their pets, and families that are fortunate enough to come for the whole summer. There are several seasonal sites here, which are in the middle area. If you choose a riverfront site, you will not be surrounded by seasonal campers and will have a lovely view. That said, we were there over the first long weekend in May, and a couple of the seasonal families were building decks. My husband went over to 'sidewalk superintend' and ended up with a hammer in his hand (which he enjoys). As a result we were invited to their inauguration BBQ. We found the seasonal families all to be friendly and not obnoxiously noisy, and we are retired folks with no kids or pets along. The park is within walking/cycling distance of Annapolis Royal, and on Saturdays there is a great farmers market as well as local restaurants etc. Definitely worth it. The restaurant attached to the park serves a hamburger large enough to share, and on a home-made bun besides. We usually cook for ourselves, but had such an enthusiastic invitation that we decided to try it. Recommended. Maintenance is ongoing, and the owners could be seen working in various areas of the park. We would camp here again in a heartbeat.
We chose this park for its location, walking distance to the falls and the river for paddle boarding. While the park brochure and outdoor sign seem welcoming, the handwritten rule signs posted around the office were not, and the staff was not particularly helpful. In fact, if we hadn't already reserved and paid the reservation fee, we would have left and gone elsewhere. No WiFi. We were told there was a pay wifi (that the staff was not knowledgeable about) but we couldn't access it. Showers were available at $2. There was a 'security deposit' of $50 per site, refundable after we left. Give me a break - what is there to damage on a grass site? There was also a $8 reservation fee, not refundable, so in fact added to the cost of the site. Sites were not level, and on grass. There was a picnic table and fire ring at each site, with a $50 fine if you moved the ring. There was no dump station. We had a full service site, but there wasn't a second one for my brother's unit. Not a problem as he figured he would just dump on his way out. Wrong. No dump. In order to check out we had to wait for the office to open, wait for the staff person to call another person to go and check our site and then wait for them to process our deposit return. Fortunately we didn't have a tight schedule! We gave the park 3 stars, probably 2 more than it deserved for attitude and service, but there was a good playground and it had the location we wanted. We would never camp there again, we would go to the very nearby Provincial park which looked very nice.
We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Tobermory and Manitoulin. Could have stayed longer and spent more time exploring the area. Staff was helpful and friendly. Our site was on the water side of the road - we were two units camping together, and my brother wanted to do some stand up paddling. He could easily walk to the water from our site. We took our bicycles to Manitoulin (easy cycle to the ferry from the park), as well as spending time in the delightful town of Tobermory. It is too far to cycle to the Bruce National Park, but not a long drive.
This is a clean, well landscaped, small park with level gravel sites. Park is on the Moose River, with some nice riverfront sites. Good Wi-Fi reception, friendly and helpful management. We would definitely stay there again. Price reflects Good Sam discount.
This is an over 55 park right in the delightful town of Bridgetown. Easy short walk to groceries, a nice pub, plus a walking trail right behind the park and accessible directly from the park. Lots to see in this area of the valley. Very pleasant stay, and we would come again.
Great park for families wanting to enjoy the beach! This is a Good Sam park. A bonus is the Shore Club (lobster dinners Wed through Sun.) and at check-in we were given a $2 per person card towards our dinner. The park is at the end of a charming road that winds beside the bay - very pretty scenery. The beach is a short walk away. No pool, but a rec hall, horseshoes, and a playground with a kids zip line. The only drawback is that the sites are fairly close together. Not unpleasantly so; we could easily have our slideouts and awning open and stay within our site, and of course for the most part folks are out enjoying the beach. There are cottages available to rent as well, making this a great place for a family gathering. We would come again.
This is a delightful park! Quiet, well maintained, with some lightly shaded sites, some open. The washrooms are all tile and spotless. Good Wi-Fi. There is a well kept pool, playground for the kids, and a nature trail. Like most RV parks there are some seasonal units (and all are newer), but lots of transient sites available plus a pleasant tenting area. We only stayed one night, but would recommend it and would come again.
This is a large state park, beautiful setting at the top of the Upper Peninsula. Sites are varying sizes, but plenty of larger sites for big rigs. This is a great park for hiking and cycling. We walked to the falls which were very scenic. Our only negative comment is the process of selecting a site - we stopped at the gate and were told to drive around the park (pulling a good sized 5th wheel) and choose a site then return to the gate and tell them which one we selected (with 5th wheel still in tow) and then they would book us in. Since all the sites were the same price, why not just choose a site, set up, and then let them know which one, like we have done in other state parks? Their answer was that others were also driving around choosing sites, and if someone came back first with the site we wanted we would have to go and choose another. So their check-in system needs an over-haul. Out of State charge of $8.00 is included in our rate.
This is a beautiful natural park, with waterfront sites. We only stayed one night, but enjoyed our stay and the views over the water. Park is cycling distance from downtown Sault Ste. Marie waterfront.
Park is situated on the shores of Chaleur Bay, with some direct waterfront sites. There is a cycling trail nearby, also within cycling distance of a great cheese shop. Our site was level enough not to unhook the truck, a bonus as we were only staying one night. Park was clean, staff was friendly and accommodating. Good Wi-Fi available at the office. We had an enjoyable stay and would come again.
Don't miss this one if you are traveling between Edmundston and Grand Falls in New Brunswick. Easy on and off the Trans Canada, but noise is buffered by trees. Very quiet and private, delightful park and hosts who are fluently bilingual and are RV'ers themselves. Sites are grass, long level pull throughs, and very spacious. The grounds are park like, well maintained, with a walking path along the river. There are trees, but not any that will interfere, just enough to be pleasant. Wi-Fi is in a building near the pool. Pets are allowed, but must be kept on a leash. Price is Passport America rate.
The person on staff was not knowledgeable about the park or RV's - she had no idea which way to access the sites, or which sites were better etc. She had no idea how to get from the park to town on the park map. As it turned out, we were given an un-level site that was under and beside a tree so that we couldn't open our slides without either hitting the tree or having to put several boards under the wheels. The park was not at all full, so she gave us another site that was level and open, however we felt she should have known this was a less than desirable site and only used it if the park was full. Sites are grass with picnic tables. Wi-Fi was excellent. Location is near the Trans Canada (a point in its favor for us as it was easy access, others might find the road noise objectionable). It is also near fuel and a nice little town for shopping, biking or walking. We just stayed overnight.
Pleasant regional park. Reservations are made by phone, no office on site, but someone will come and pick up the money, check washrooms etc. Site was newly graveled, very spacious. Park was quiet. When we were there there was a large group camped in the park. I'm not sure we would like to be the only ones there. Closest park to Castle Butte, which we wanted to see. Side note, the butte was interesting, and so was the landscape around it, but not really worth the drive to get there. Overpriced for an small unsupervised park in a fairly out of the way location. Miles off the Trans Canada on secondary roads. We stayed one night.
Staff was efficient. We were guided to our site and showed the hookups etc. Laundromat was clean. $2 each for wash and dry. Park was gravel. Sites were level - we didn't unhook the truck. We were allowed to wash our truck and front of the trailer to remove the millions of moths that we picked up. The RV park is adjacent to a mobile home park. We stayed here just overnight. It was convenient to the Trans Canada, easy on and off.
Park is undergoing some changes as they are building some condo units on the property. There are some tired .permanent mobile home units surrounding the RV park. Staff was friendly. Our site was pull-through and level enough to leave the truck attached. Sites are gravel. The setting is beautiful, surrounded by mountains. Main feature is that the park is within easy walking distance of Canmore's touristy downtown. Good Wi-Fi.
Staff are pleasant and helpful. Only complaints are that the sites are alternating, meaning one unit can drive in, the next one has to back in as services are in between (we had site 3). We had to use an extension cord to reach the post. Signs at the entrance to the park are partially blocked by trees, so a bit hard to see. Sites are spacious. Park is clean and quiet. Wi-Fi is good. Park is close to town, easy cycling distance. We would come here again.
