“Highlight of my trip!”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 via mobile

Had the pleasure of staying 2 nights while riding the island on my motorcycle. I was guided to my cliffside campsite by one of the staff on an atv. She was extrememly helpful and even gave me a couple maps of the island with places to see, things to do and even where to eat! I could't get over the amazing views right from my camp site! I had a clear view of the swallow tail light and got to see the ferrys comming in multiple times a day. Now if you're a light sleeper I would recommend bringing ear plugs.There is a fog horn on the swallow tail light that you can hear plain as day if there is any amount of fog. However I think that just added to my incredible experiance on the island! There are showers ($2) and firewood available on site as well! I'd like to say thankyou to the owners for providing such an excellent service for a very reasonable price!

Was in the campground for 4 nights. Staff was great to direct us to our site. We had Top G . We saw some whales right off the cliffs on our site. Good space for our tents and eating area. Nearby sites also good for viewing and for those with tent-trailers. Showers were kept clean and we had good access to plugs to charge our phones.

Thanks again to owner Kay for keeping a great campground going for so many years.

Room Tip: First choice should be cliff side site.

We can safely say that this was by far the most special camp site (tent) we've ever had. We have camped in many NPs and SPs in the US and Canada, but being right on the edge looking down at the ocean and, yes, whales, seals and birds, just blew us away. No fog, so no horn. Proprietors were fine and the facilities are primitive up at the sites. You will pay for any amenities using an honor system. Chump change, considering, you are sleeping high above the ocean, under a multitude of stars whilst whales exhale you to dreamland. Best part of Grand Manan, hands down, is this experience.

The campsites have great views of the ocean. It was wonderful being able to see whales from our campsite each day. Hot showers are available and there is a microwave and electric burners in the small lodge. There are pots nad pans you can use and a sink for cleaning up afterwards. We loved hiking the trails in the area and seeing the Hole in the Wall. There is nothing better than hearing the whales at night and waking up to the fantastic sunrise. The other campers are respectful of one another and it is a great, quiet campground. The owner and staff rightfully take great pride in keeping the place clean, neat and safe. Staying here is a wonderful experience.

It is exactly what we needed. We planned this whole trip on a whim and it was perfect. The camping is rustic which is exactly what we wanted. We had a cliff edge site and woke up to whales, dolphins and seals every day. The views were magnificent. The tree cover is limited so be prepared in case of rain.
We will be coming back soon!

First off, this is a unique camp site.. really nice! I recommend a cliff area.. you'll have a beautiful view of the ocean. The service is great and they run off of the honor system which is old school and awesome. Rates are excellent. 28$ per night. They have WiFi, showers, laundry, fire wood. On our last night, a lady we didn't know had a flat tire in their parking lot.. we wanted to help her and camp ground management advised us not to... she was rude and seemed to have a personal investment in the towing company she called... towing company showed up without a tire iron.. good thing we stayed because we had one to help her.. needless to say.. old school attitude. Do real issues other then they don't seem all that helpful unless you're forking over cash.
