We came in for some chowder after walking the Meat Cove beach. Delicious chowder, and they also directed us to a close-by hike for some great views of Meat Cove.

We arrived at Meat Cove late in the afternoon and were initially told that there were no more campsites left, but they managed to squeeze us and our little tent in at "the last" spot left - a great little spot, actually, on the cliff near the bushes, with a great view of the ocean. We ate dinner at the restaurant (fish cakes with beans and slaw/fish sandwich with fries) and enjoyed it very much. The serving staff were very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms had recently been renovated and they were very clean, plenty of hot water, and still smelling like the wood that they were built from. This really is a slice of paradise. Best views off the Cabot Trail. Very relaxing, so much so that we blew off our second travel day and just hung out, spending a second night there. The restaurant was closed the second day, but there is a small supermarket about 8 km away. There are no hookups for RVs, so come self-sufficient. The hiking trail was neat and provided a great view of the coastline and the campground itself. Definitely worth a visit or an overnight.

Even though, we have arrived past 3pm, we manage to get the last tenting spot- it was nested on the edge of the cliff and a bushes, which was perfect. The camping ground has wi-fi, which surprising worked well, considering how remote the place is. We also had an access to brand new showers, with hot water. After a long day, we could not ask for more. Justin, the manager, was very nice and helpful. There are amazing hikes around, especially the Mountain Hike, worth to climb! It was definitely the most beautiful located camping ground I've ever been to. The downside was that the restaurant was closed for 2 days, but oh well, it happens.

Who knew you could get fantastic oysters at a campground? Our sea kayak tour guide knew, that's who! We were sent here after our adventure on the ocean and were not disappointed. So yummy!
