Good campground for driving the Cabot Trail and the AG Bell National Historic Site in Baddeck. Access road goes from paved to gravel and back to paved. Office looks like an old KOA. The sites vary greatly and the interior roads are rough. We were in the second row from office with 3 way hookups where the Wi-Fi and antenna TV worked fairly well. The campground is very busy with families on weekends.

Sites are very level back-in and the Wi-Fi works well near the office. The showers are spotless. We stayed a few days before taking the ferry and used the campground paper information to tour the Codroy Valley. Cash only. We would definitely stay here again.

This is an old park with mostly seasonals and permanents in the treed area. Transient sites are mostly on the water where there are no trees but level sites. They advertise paved roads and no dust but that must have been when the park was new. We were here on sunny days and rainy nights and had no problem with mud. The washrooms and laundry are old and unkempt but clean. Campground location is very convenient to the North Cape, Coastal drive, Summerside shopping, and not that far from Charlottetown. Rate is with Good Sam discount. We would stay here again for the beautiful sunsets.

This definitely isn’t a destination campground since it’s basically a big gravel parking lot but it is still a good stop even if you aren’t taking the ferry to North Sydney. The sites are fairly level with all connections at back of site. The modern washrooms are clean but have only one commode and two showers. We stayed between ferries so it wasn’t crowded at all. Friendly, helpful staff with knowledge about visiting Placentia, Cape St. Mary’s and exploring the now defunct military base.

Convenient stop heading north or east. Friendly staff offering fresh raspberries in season. Campground is located across from Insectarium, a very good exhibit. Fairly level sites but the park is crowded on weekends and when a caravan is on site. The grounds are not well maintained but Wi-Fi was excellent. Washrooms were not clean during our stay.

Friendly welcome and later in our stay by the new owners as of 2008. The showers were clean but cost a loonie for 4 min. There is no laundry on site. The sites are well manicured and level where we camped near the bath house. We would stay here again.

Convenient campground right in town. Washrooms definitely over used and not kept clean; Washers are $2.75 for 24 minutes and dryers $2 for 24 minutes; very busy place. Wi-Fi only at loop 4 which has no trees and all pull through sites mainly used by caravans; other sites are more private with bushes and trees in between; very busy on weekends; definitely kid and dog friendly. Several break-ins occurred the week we camped but there are many signs warning to keep valuables out of site.

Friendly staff; clean washrooms; small sites not very level; we used this as a base for Bonavista but noticed Paradise Farm Trailer Park on the way that was much closer on the main road and looked acceptable.

We arrived without a reservation and a caravan had most of the sites. The hostess gave us several options and we took the last 2-way (not very level) site rather than dry camping in the open field. WiFi costs; the washrooms and laundry area are old and not very tidy: $2 for a shower. The road is dusty gravel in the campground; the cut off road to the campground is full of potholes. It's a convenient location and everyone is friendly; cash only.

Convenient for St. Anthony and L’Anse aux Meadows, this park has friendly staff. Has a clean laundry and washrooms but the shower goes hot and cold. The WiFi is weak and only works near the office. Caravans use this campground. The dump station is on the middle row of sites: not exactly convenient.

$16 for no hookups here, ($19 if you want a cord stretched from office to your rig) but was quite adequate to drop the trailer and take the ferry to Labrador. Right across the street from the ferry ticket office. The bathhouse and laundry area are modern and clean; had very helpful and pleasant staff.

Sites are e/w and there is a dump. Has a clean bathhouse. there is a single row of sites facing the Gulf. The view is fantastic even in the rain. The sites are gravel so it wasn’t muddy; it could get windy. Has a friendly staff.

Park has long, level pull-through sites; plenty of room for caravans; clean showers (50 cents) and laundry; and well-cared for grounds. The activity area includes table tennis, exercise equipment, hot tub, and games. Be sure to take the walking path from the campground down the hill toward the water and around the perimeter of the property. The fields of wild flowers are beautiful. An excellent stop before the ferry to NL as well as the drive to Louisbourg and Glace Bay.

All sites are full hook up which is good because the bathhouse/laundry area is near the office/entrance. The laundry is clean and has four double load front loaders and four dryers. The sites are gravel and fairly level but the gravel road through the campground to the sites is narrow, winding and completely tree-lined. I wouldn’t want to drive a big rig through here but others did. We had lots of rain so the roads puddled but the sites didn’t. The wifi appears to reach all sites but the most we could get was 11 Mbps, barely sufficient to download email.

Great place to stay in Digby area. Owners are very helpful. Convenient location near Bay ferries and Annapolis Royal; fairly level grass sites; no breakers on shore power hookup; didn’t use facilities but they looked fairly clean though old.

Very friendly staff. The property has been in the same family since the 1700’s. We saw the sea caves out our front window and walked down to the shore at low and high tides. What a view and what a change! The WiFi worked fairly well since we were close to the laundry area. Mostly grass sites, but plenty of room. DVD’s in the office are only $1 to rent but it’s hard to find the time since the sun didn’t set until almost ten.

Great location right on the bay and close to historic city center. Has level gravel sites, old side by side utility hookups. Has a very clean bathhouse although men and women shared because the men’s side was out of order. The laundry has two front loading washers and all machines take US and Canadian quarters as do most shops in town. It's a good location for biking or hiking around island and into town. We would definitely stay here again.

Includes $5 for Provincial Park fee and electric only. Arrived just before midnight from the ferry; the office was open, we were guided to the site; modern and clean bathhouse; friendly staff; be aware that when you turn off TCH 1 the road is paved but quickly turns to gravel for the remaining 1 ½ miles. Large, level gravel sites.

A bit pricey for just a cord for electricity and a hose strung along a brook (not river) for services. Small cramped campground sites are parallel parking along the brook and fence. Could be a problem parallel parking for some. Dump is in an inconvenient spot at the entrance. That said, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Key needed to open the two washrooms which are rustic but clean. Staff will open the laundry of one washer and one dryer when you ask. $5 to wash and dry. Internet is very low but the library with free Wi-Fi is just across the street. Cash only.

Busy campground, especially on weekends. All sites have picnic table and barbecue grill. Overlooks freshwater pond and a short walk to Atlantic Ocean. White sand beach, washrooms and laundry are closer to the beach area. Mini golf, paddle boats, playground and canteen near day use area. Friendly, helpful staff. Gates are locked at 11 pm so be sure to get a key for entry. Cash only.

Just a few miles off Viking Trail 430 and before the road turns, twists, and hills on the way to Trout River and Woody Point; active crowd with music in the lodge bar on weekends; several sites are for weekend campers; snack bar on location is very handy; clean washrooms and laundry; salmon fishing; most sites almost level, sites near road not level. Would camp here again.

All sites are 3 way, and mostly level gravel. Has a beautiful view of the Exploits River. It's convenient to town, museums and shopping. Has excellent washrooms. WiFi only at the office area.

Park has a small but clean bathhouse; with only 2 washers and dryers for everyone. The WiFi was barely adequate for email. It's convenient for the area.

Had to settle for electric and water as a caravan was arriving and using the e/w/s sites. The bathhouse is clean but the showers are very small. Park has beautiful views of the back harbor from lower sites; it's convenient to historical sites and the waterfront; and has friendly staff. It has fairly level gravel sites. The steep and gravel drive down to the lower sites is not recommended for big rigs. WiFi only at a few sites near the visitor center.

Nine miles north of Yarmouth, lake swimming, laundry, full service sites mostly seasonal, E/W sites around the lake, fairly level sites, old but clean bathhouse, quiet, friendly manager on site. Leaving the campground can be a bit tricky because you must drive onto the highway with a blind curving crest in one direction and a blind curve in the other. Sites not well maintained, grass growing up around seasonal campers.

Directions on website and in campground books are fine but not as easy as it sounds. As we drove around St. John, we noticed that heading east would be more difficult as you go on 100 which isn’t well marked. We stayed in the gravel area but had a site along the edge between two seasonals; very close to bathhouse and laundry. The larger sites have a post that serves 4 sites, each with its own power plug and water faucet on the post, and no sewer. If you get on the wrong side of the post you’ll need an extension for both power and water. Sewer sites are the next row and only back to back. The Wi-Fi worked fine for us as we were near the laundry room where the antenna is located. Bath house is clean but very old.

A good location to visit the lighthouses and Campobello. The sites are right on the water, had great view of tides. The utility hookups are new; cable TV works great. The sites are mostly level; no trees or bushes to get in the way. The bathhouse is clean but cold because the exhaust fan pulls cold air into the shower. The WiFi is virtually nonexistent: we went into town to the library.

Ready Camp Go card rate + $3 guest fee charged at all Encore parks. Has good gravel, level sites; and friendly office staff. The Tengo WiFi worked well for $5/day; cable TV was excellent. Had a modern, clean bathhouse. It was a convenient location for both Bar Harbor and Ellsworth; be sure to visit the Oceanarium.

You must drive into Thomaston to get to this campground and over a one-lane bridge. Rate is Passport America; regular rate is $45/night. Good park with friendly management. Fairly level gravel sites; bathhouse clean but old; men’s side had a definite list to it. Full hookup was convenient; a motorhome with slides might have problems with the sites dug into the hill because they are narrow. The Wi-Fi was very poor; almost worse than no WiFi at all. Access to the water was a long walk down from your site, but you have a great view of the river from most of the sites. Sites have metal rings for fires and very lush grass. Fair gravel access road that is muddy in the rain.

We had a waterfront site with beautiful views of the lake; canoes and swimming area were kept very clean. Gravel roads and some sites might be tight to get into. Very friendly staff, quiet CG with very nice people. Has a clean bathhouse and laundry. Nice place for an extended stay.

The rate reflects a Good Sam discount of 10%. We were told that someone was coming to work on the WiFi but it never did work. Our site was not very level; the cable TV worked fine. Office staff was friendly and handled much of the holiday weekend special activities. Dump station is very close to exit and could cause congestion if everyone left at same time. The landscape around the office is beautiful; the sites themselves are mostly wooded; bathhouse and laundry area clean but small. We have stopped here before and will again.

This is a good park with large pull-through grassy sites. The roads are solid and well maintained. Full hookups with cable TV and free Wi-Fi are very convenient. Management is very friendly and offered to stay if we didn’t arrive before closing; be aware that after you pull in there is a walk to the office in the motel adjoining which could be a problem if the weather is bad. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Just wanted to give an update on this campground; I have found that all Encore properties are not equal. The staff was friendly both in the office and at the gate; we stayed in the Veranda section which seems to be the best as we drove around later to look over the resort; restrooms were clean; WiFi worked well but we paid extra for cable TV since it was only available at certain sites; off season rate was reasonable for the area. Looks like this would be a busy place during the season.

Nice clean park with wide open sites; only six electric – we came through on a weekday so we were able to get one; sites are not level and on grass; bathhouse clean; good campground for fishing and canoeing.

Needed to stop but would rather have found a Wal-Mart. The sites here were not level, and the amenities not great. The bathhouse was fairly clean but grass was grown up around the entrance. Was definitely not worth the $40.

We are travelling on US 301 and needed a stop before our planned one further north. This park was definitely fine for a one night stay at the Passport America rate. The staff saw us arriving and met us at the office then took us to our site on her bicycle; she was very friendly and gave us all the info we needed for WiFi. We did not utilize any of the facilities. Would stay again if needed.

This is a Passport American Campground and has quite a few long term residents. The roads are gravel, however the sites were fairly level. The bathroom and laundry were clean and the internet worked well from our campsite around the office area where the antenna is located. The campground staff is very friendly. We have stopped here before and will again.
