This is a beautiful campsite, right on the Cabot trail on the western part the National Park. Great location and well organised. During this my second stay, I rented one of their tent/cabins. They come with a heater --a nice feature for the middle of the fall and space to sit and enjoy. It comes advertised as having a charger but this is a bit of a fib. There is a plug but it doesn't work. When I asked about it, I was told that because it's from solar, it's hit and miss. Not because there is no Sun, but because the panels may be obstructed by branches and we cannot cut from the branches, they said. But the price is not being trimmed either. So they know the branches obstruct the panels in specific units, won't do anything about it, but they still advertise the chargers and charge (pun intended) full price for them. Government nightmare. The ladies at the front desk offered very kindly to charge my phone. I'm grateful for that. But the paid ability to DO it conveniently overnight at my leisure was not there. If you want to rent one of these tents in the park, buyer beware.
Reasonable campground, but nothing special. We stayed here for 1 night as we went around the Cabot Trail. The campground is well run and maintained well enough, being part of the National Park. We somehow ended up on a trailer (electrical) site despite having a tent, so it wasn't the most wooded site. Walking around, it seemed that the dedicated tent sites were nicely forested in some areas but very exposed in others, so exercise some caution when reserving. The washrooms were clean and well maintained. There are too few water refilling stations for the size of the campground and number of unserviced sites... campers in our section had to drive to get water as it was unreasonable to walk back with a filled jug. Overall, nothing exceptional, but definitely servicable as a stop along the trail. The national park reservation system and its associated non-refundable booking fee make the price a bit steep on a 1 night stop, though.
It's not exactly an interesting campsite in terms of camping (very flat and open) but it made a nice rest stop on the Cabot trail. The washroom closest was pretty clean (3 stalls and 1 shower).
Sites are WAY too small in some cases less than a few feet. The facilities seem lacking for the number of campers. At one point our neighbours were up till one in the morning partying loudly and our small children couldn't sleep. Our backyard would have been better. For the price disappointing
I would give it 5 stars but most of the sites have zero privacy. Washrooms and access to trails and the Cabot Trail is great.
