Came with our travel trailer and have had a great time at this clean and well organized campground. Sites are spacious, pool enclosure and park are well kept and clean. All COVID-19 restrictions in place to keep all safe. Coin laundry on site and camp store is well appointed if you forgot something. Staff are super friendly and helpful.

This was a great campground for families. There was canoe and kayak rentals, dry wood (stored covered and indoors) a pool and a dated playground. The beach is meant more for a boat launch than swimming as it is rather weedy. Camp store has all the essentials.

Our cabin was comfortable but thank goodness it had a fan!! It also had a heater for cooler nights. Bathroom had a few shelves and lots of hooks.

Will go back again.

Hi Kat, First of all I want to say thanks for staying with us in one of our Cabins. Also thanks for the wonderful and very detailed review. It is very nice to get very detailed feedback so we can improve the campground even more. We are happy you enjoyed your Cabin and the campground. Also great to hear you will be back!! We ordered new sand for the beach in May. Unfortunately everything takes much longer since Covid, but we will have a much more beachy beach next year. We are looking forward to seeing you again!! Take care Daniel

A great little campground at the base of the cabot trail. Stayed in their rustic cabins for 2 nights and really enjoyed our time. Comfy mattresses, friendly service, heated pool. Our site had a mini fridge, lots of electrical outlets, a water tap outside, a charcoal BBQ, a firepit and a covered porch. Bathrooms were clean and spacious and there was a laundry facility and outdoor communal cooking area.

Only 5 mins from Baddeck this is a true gem of a campground. Friendly staff, trails to walk on and a nice pool. The sites are a nice size. The campground is both modern and rustic. I would recommend if in the area for sure.

Beautiful 3 service site close to Baddeck and The Cabot Trail. Awesome home base for our 4 day stay. Owners very kind and helpful with obvious pride in their campground.
Laundromat was clean. Did not use the pool but it looked lovely
Would recommend and would love to stay again some day!

We just wrapped a great four day stay here. Perfect from checking to check out. Really friendly staff on site, great grassy treed sites and good walking, biking and swimming. Bathroom extremely well cared for and laundromat was clean and well maintained. Close to Baddeck, the Cabot Trail. We would highly recommend it if you are looking for a relaxing quiet place to stay.

My friend and I spent two nights here. The staff at the main cabin was very friendly as were our neighbours who helped us build our fire lol. It's amazing how a lot of things here run on the honesty system (eg. free movie rentals, after hours wood bundles). It's also very reasonably priced. It has a true East Coast hospitality feel. Couldn't be happier :)

The staff is very friendly, there are many good sites, and they even had free live music when we were there. This is a good spot for RV'ers to stay when visiting Baddeck and the Cabot trail - Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

My wife and I stayed here in our 5th wheel for 6 days in Sept 2016. This is a great spot...nice sized lots...clean and well maintained washrooms...strong wifi ...outdoor heated pool...and above all a very friendly and helpful staff. Check-in was fast, with a staff member guiding us to our site. This is a great spot to launch day trips to other Cape Breton scenic areas and some great restaurants. We would definately return.

Hi Charli, thanks so much for the excellent review and spending six nights at our campground. It seems you very much enjoyed your trip to Cape Breton and had a very good time at our campground. We are more than happy that you will return to our campground next time you come to beautiful Cape Breton Island. Next time you will stay with us, we will even try a little harder so we get the 5 stars :-)) Thanks again and take care, Daniel
