It was so windy that we could barely get out of the car for a picture. All rocks, didn’t look like there was any sand there. On the plus side there was no one there, just too had the wind and waves were so high.

Neh..If you don't mind literally camping on top of each other, ok. First camp site for us was very very small with no space for our vehicle and we only tow a 13 foot scamp. They did however help us find another site and that one worked although I felt we were sharing a site with someone else, actually we were because we shared the same number and we had to share the water. It was so far away we needed to use a hose from the campground. We were gone all day and we did not even eat at our site because we had more privacy at other picnic areas. We just used it to sleep. The staff were all very nice and helpful and it was quiet at night for sleeping I do have to say! ....Too much of a cluster for me

The main campground is a cluster F, we were parked beside a “permanent resident” and decided to move out to a flat open area that was nowhere near private, but at least cleaner! The lady at the counter was the best part, very nice.

We reserved a tent spot but upon arrival decided it was too cold and upgraded to a rented trailer. Beautiful view, I clean for a living so believe me when I say this place was super clean! Kids running around being loud and having fun but whatever. So glad we came across this place!

OK, up front a disclosure: We stayed at the nearby Cheticamp Motel after driving the Cabot Trail and hiking extensively during the previous week. It was a Sunday morning and our clothes were all dirty. What to do? We were pointed towards this as the best laundromat option nearby. Actually, I can say that it was the best laundromat ever. It is small. The attendant was welcoming and helpful in orienting us to protocols. The room and the machines were in impeccable shape. Free WIFI was available. We could wash and then sit outside looking at the gorgeous scenery while waiting for the last spin of the washer or dryer. Unfortunately my pics do not do justice to the beauty of the setting. Be assured that it is a better option than watching others fold their laundry while you wait for yours! If you need to attend to the laundry after the Park, this is where you should go. It is an experience in itself.

A short 4.5 hr drive from Shediac had us arriving in Cheticamp just in time to check in. We were given site 60 (right beside washroom/shower building) and found levelling the RV to be next to impossible. It was horribly graded and even with lots of blocking and ramps for tires we couldn’t get level. Seen lots of open campsites so went to front desk to see if we could move, as a smaller trailer may have better luck finding even patches on this site. I was informed that I could not move to an open site even though sites are not booked individually, it’s first come first serve as long as you have a reservation (which we made in March). Their policy seemed to be, don’t like it, here’s your money back and you can leave. Since we came here for the beach and spectacular views, dealing with a crappy campsite was minor as our accommodations (32 ft RV) were excellent. The site had 30A, water and sewer, but we had to use the tank as the grade would not allow me to open the sewer pipe without bad stuff running back downhill...not so cool. We had to call and get the breaker reset on the first night which was odd, but maybe the breaker is getting old and thermally tripped many times before. We just shut the AC off if we wanted to use another appliance (toaster, hair dryer, microwave) and it never happened again. The main building has the laundry facility and uses loonies and quarters. There are stations for washing dishes so you don’t have to do them in the bathroom 🤢 if you are tent camping. The bathroom/shower buildings around the campsite were as was expected, make sure to watch for the cleaning personnel for your optimal experience. Doesn’t hold a candle to a national park, but the location and scenery is worth coming for. Make sure to stop in Amherst; (Atlantic Superstore, Canadian Tire, Walmart, etc) on your way as the local shopping is sparse for anybody with food allergies or sensitivities or requiring any specialized items. We made the site the best we could, and had a great couple days relaxing at the beach and our campsite.

My husband and I arrived after the office closed on a chilly, windy, rainy evening. The owner was incredibly welcoming and drove around to help us find the best tent site sheltered by trees. Bathrooms were spotless and water was hot. Campground has a ton of amenities. I realize we were here before the crowds but if there are complaints about how many people camp here then it must be because it is a great location with lots of attraction. Thank you for a great stay!

We spent four nights at this campground in a fully serviced site. We were delayed by traffic tie ups and called to say we would be arriving past office hours. The person who answered our call couldn't find our reservation so we were told to pull into any site when we arrived. The next morning we were told we had to move because the spot we were in was reserved. We had pulled into spot 40, and were made move to spot 39--which was identical to the spot we were in. We have a smaller trailer that has to be levelled manually, and were forced to move for a motorhome that levels automatically. This was pretty annoying, as there was virtually no difference between the two sites. The sites were small and very close together. There was virtually no privacy, but the price was excellent and the park was clean and very quiet at night. Quiet hours were enforced. It is a great location and there was lots for kids to do and beautiful scenery all around. We would stay at this campground again if we return to Cheticamp.

Spent our first two nights in the tent overflow area (a field at the front of the campground). The ground there is grassy and good for tenting. Toilet and shower facilities are limited but clean, probably because most RV’ers use their own. However, there is no camp kitchen and the washing-up sinks are a disgrace. Definitely bring your own bowl. Our last night was in a static caravan rental as we didn’t want to be packing our tent in the forecast rain. The rain didn’t come, the caravan was old and pretty ordinary and we wished we’d stayed in the tent. There were newer vans on site so check before you book an onsite van to make sure you know what you’re getting. We don’t have kids but if you do, this place is probably a godsend as it’s next to the beach, has a sports field, crazy golf and kids games. If you’re more interested in nature and hiking, the Cheticamp National Park campground has better facilities and is closer to the hikes in the national park.
