This place was amazing. Whales spouting non stop. Seals Everywhere. Definitely a more rustic feel as the washrooms except at the main gate are just outhouses. The price and the fact they do everything by the honour system is a great throwback to a better time. When you arrive just be prepared it may take longer then you are used to as the sites are remote the owners show you to your site the first time you go. I recommeed doing the trail as well that runs along the campsite to the actual hole-in-the wall. If there is fog be prepared for a fog horn so back ear plugs just in case

Room Tip: Try to get a cliff edge

Thank you for your encouraging review. Yes, ferry arrival times govern our guest arrivals with often more than one checking in at the same time so thank you for explaining the registration detail. As you appreciated, given the scope of the camping area, it is necessary for staff to insure that the site will accomodate the guests needs. We work to assign the sites according to the pre visit reservation request but realize we must also allow for flexibility. Regards, Kaye

RV spots are at the front of the campsite with OK views, but for the tenting and tent trailer crowd, the cliff side, cliff edge and cliff top sites are spectacular. These sites line the eastern shore of Fishhead, just north of Grand Manan's iconic Swallowtail lighthouse. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit, where you can enjoy an ocean view while watching sea birds, seals, porpoise and whales. The property is very large with lots of biking and hiking trails.

Room Tip: D and E sections are more austere. I like the convenience and the views at the B sites.

Thank you for taking the time to write a positive review. If the 'maker' of Fish Head had not been so careless with throwind down ledge and boulders, the serviced sites might have been closer to the ocean! But the trade off is being able to hike to the decks, the trails, and enjoy the spectacular vistas. Regards, Kaye

Private, well kept, great sites. We rated for 3 nights with another family. Not cliffs edge but by the cliff as we have little ones and the views were spectacular! Wood is a rip off at $7/bag but everything else was reasonably priced. They have a WiFi lane our front with free WiFi. Clean showers, toilets, outhouses. You can watch for whales right at your site!

We arrive at our site to be greeted by 2 playful seals about 50ft below us frolicking in the water. Our tent barely fits the site but that is part of the adventure. Your view is vast across the Bay of Fundy. We had the privilege of constant whale sightings during our 3 night stay as well as many porpoise and seabirds. The minkes, finbacks and humbacks made themselves known blowing and breeching. You do hear them in the night but it is not bothersome. Waves of herring schools swim by which creates a gentle sound. Fog made its way to Grand Manan that week which does bring on the fog horns you can hear in the distance and the ferry does have to make itself known on its transport across the bay but in sunny weather you hear SILENCE. A distant seagull may break your calm. The campground itself is nothing fancy in fact the middle appears to be some kind of aggregate dig site. The sites are full of roots and rocks so bring your hiking shoes. They are pretty private as well. You will need to hike down to many of the cliff edge sites about 20 feet +/-. There are several hiking trails that afford you some gorgeous views. There is a shared kitchen area and microwave and burners awa showers and flush toilets. Site areas are all pit toilets. There are no activities of amenities other than those mentioned. Wood is $5 - 6CAN you can buy Ice for $2CAN. I would recommend it for the experience of watching whales while lying in your tent.

Room Tip: Cliff Edge sites are on the route where the whales swim

Very nice and friendly service!
The camp sites are spacious. You can even camp on the cliff side, with a view of the ocean!
Hiking trails are fun and have spectacular views.
Shared showers, bathrooms and kitchen facility are basic, but adequate.

Room Tip: Best view of the Hole in the Wall!
