It was gorgeous!! The beach was beautiful And raked daily! Very private! The sand was like being down south! 🏖
Amanda working the office was fantastic! ❤️ We loved her and all her tips! She gave us mackerel for bait, to go fishing at the point! Between her and the owner Joseph and his family they helped Ryan fillet his catch!! So sweet!! The campground was clean, quiet and relaxing! Everything you need right there! Trip to town is ten mins, to grocery store etc! Met some wonderful people! So happy we went, unfortunately we had to go home but we had the best 3 days camping!! 😃 thank you Amanda! Thank you Joseph! ❤️
See you next year!!

We visited Escuminac beach on a day trip. The treatment we received from the family that runs the place was exceptional. For starters, it was an overcast, windy day and they didn't charge us for entry. Then, when Monica noticed my son's interest in her shell collection, she took the time to show us the shells and skeletons that she'd collected over the years and told us the stories of how she's acquired them. It was really lovely that she shared her passion with us. It was definitely a trip highlight for my son.

We had a lovely vacation to Escuminac Beach this weekend. We were greeted at the office/canteen kindly by staff at the park and were able to choose where we pitched our tent which was very nice. Not even ten minutes after we arrived to our site a truck came to bring us firewood and our fire pit as well as move a picnic bench to our site, again with very accommodating and kind staff. We had a lovely weekend at the beach and were fortunate to have good weather and great fellow campers as company.

I loved the lighthouses and sun covers that line the beach that highlight the Acadian culture and there was even a paddleboat during our stay that you could take out to the water. The water wasn't too cold and I was surprised at how nice it was with little jellyfish and it was very clear. Overall, we had a lovely experience that I couldn't recommend enough.

Every year we make are trek up from the States to visit everyone at Escuminac. They are delightful people and great place to have fun. Fishing and the beach is a plus! Walking Escuminac beach in search of sea glass and other sea things. We love going into the Canteen seeing everyone who makes our vacation even more special! Thank you to Monica and Aldore for a great home feeling!

This campground used to be my absolute favourite but has really gone downhill the last couple years. It should be noted that the beach is absolutely beautiful but this review is specific to the facilities and service on location.
They have stopped maintaining the shaded areas on the beach, they are now immersed in tall grass and full of sand from the dunes. This makes it impossible to escape the direct sun.
There are two change rooms at the beginning of the boardwalk and one is missing a door and the adjacent outdoor shower area has rotten deck boards.
The shower/ washroom building for campers has an extremely boggy floor, it feels as if you could fall right through it.
On our last two visits we asked for wood for a fire and were told someone would be around to drop some off to us. No one ever came. It’s not particularly enjoyable to be at an unserviced site without being able to have a fire; that kind of makes the whole camping experience.
While it is not the fault of the campground, it is noteworthy that the mosquitoes were absolutely horrific to the point that we could not even sit outside.

Thank you for your comments and for once being your favourite spot to visit. I agree we with you, we do have some up keep to do on the property. As you know from living in Miramichi, our winters can be quite rough at times. Last winter was not an exception. We are a small family owned and operated establishment and do what we can to prioritize our jobs accordingly. Sometimes certain things have to wait. Having pointed that out, here are a few things you might not realize about our area: Dunes are highly protected not for only the ecosystem but also for land-loss. The shaded areas you are referring to were once built on the beach itself. Due to Mother Nature (with a little hand from us) we have been fortunate enough over the years to built/gain a growth of 25ft + of dune within that time (bonus considering the amount of erosion that has chewed our coastline within the past few years). For example, Within one storm the following August of your visit, the dunes were completely torn down as well as a few of the gazebos you were speaking of. It is that quick! My one recommendation to all our visitors is if knowing you are heading to the beach for the day; water, sunscreen and a hat are a necessity. Every structure on the property is built on sand. Once the ground below is frozen, it shifts. Causing all types of issues. Hence the need for us to have to prioritize. Including the soft floor. I understand your point of view. Unfortunately, we could not close the building off during the busy part of our season to rebuild a new floor. This was an inconvenience however it might have been more drastic if I had. It really does put a damper on things, camping without a fire. If it was an oversight, I apologize but it does happen. Something to note: We are monitored and must watch the fire ban order each day. If a ban is issued for our area we must follow it. On those days, we do not deliver wood. Mosquitoes ~ Nature's way of making you dance to a bad song! ;) All visitors are important to us and we do our best to accommodate, it is unfortunate you had a bad experience.

We were on an RV trip and made a last minute reservation while en route through NB - we were really pleasantly surprised by how pretty the site is and how nice the older couple who own the property were! The RV park itself is basic but its location on the water and the fantastic way you can experience it made us want to stay longer.

Love this place and the people who operate it We can't say enough about the friendly,hospitable owner/operators. Joe, Mary & Monica can't do enough to accomodate you. Even took the time to assist us in changing a flat tire.The campground and faciities are clean & well maintained.The sandy beach is a marvel. Not far away(within walking distance for some) is a fish plant with a retail store where you can buy your favorite seafood guaranteed fresh! The perfect place to unwind. If you bring children there are the playgrounds and as always, the beach for them to amuse themselves. Definitely will return.

We intended to stay one night but after looking around at the campground and sandy beach (miles of it), we were there 5 nights!! What a thoroughly enjoyable rest stop it was for us. The McIntyre family are excellent hosts, dedicated to making your stay comfortable and pleasant. This is camping before 'resort-style' camping popped up. We are seniors and it was perfect for us. The facilities are clean, it's quiet, the beach is exceptional and we continued our trip feeling refreshed. Another big plus...there's a fish plant almost next door with a large variety of seafood available.

We arrived 2 motor homes and trailers (total length 65 feet) late at night. We were welcomed by the owners and the guided us towards our sites. The next day we walked the beach, it was nice and quiet. Monica the daughter of the owners was hand raking the beach she came by and introduce herself. We walked to a fish store that was a 10 minutes walk from the campground, we got to see all the fishing boats. Mary and Jo, the owners are really really nice, everyday we would go up to the office and we would get our story of the day. Jo had all kinds of interesting local stories to tell us. On our last day, Monica made us care packages filled with souvenirs that I could share with my students back home. It was a really nice maritime holiday that we will remember for a long time and we hope to go back.
