This place had everything we were looking for when I booked it: fully serviced site on treed lot, wifi, beautiful setting, somewhat private. We were sneaking away from my busy B&B for a few days so for me it was a working vacation. This place does not disappoint. Potentially it's a wonderful place to relax between exploring the beautiful Aspy Bay and Northern Cape Breton. Unfortunately for us, the owners were busy building ten new sites within view of our campsite so we got to listen to the sounds of excavation equipment and chain saws. In fairness to them they did offer us another site (I don't think it wouldn’t have been that much quieter) and the construction didn't start until after 8am. We do understand that sometimes one doesn't necessarily have a choice as to when things get done but it wasn't really the peaceful, serene setting we were hoping for. Next time we'll be sure to ask if there is any construction going on before we book because, yes, we will be back.

Loved staying at this park. Most lots are worded and spaced far apart. We stayed here for 3 nights and it’s the perfect spot to drop your trailer and go off discovering. Lots to see while staying here. Fantastic owners that treat you like neighbours. They own their own oyster farm so they do sell fresh oysters in their little cafe in the office. During summer season and when the crab and lobster are in season they do host dinners however I would check with them first to see what they’re offering!

We spent one night here but it was a special night: The night that Hurricane Dorian hit Nova Scotia, in particular Dingwall that night! Susan put us in the full service cabin because it was better protected. She served up some delicious oysters (pulled right from their oyster beds down the road - fresh!!) even though she was getting everything set up for the storm. The cabin made it through 70-80 mph winds, the winds howled & the rain came down, but no leaks and now damage. The camp grounds are quite extensive, clean bathrooms and lots of wooded areas. It seems like there are 2x as many RV hook ups. It was a lovely part of Cape Breton, on the Cabot Trail, and we highly recommend it.

Good campground with great services for an RV. The owner was very knowledgeable, friendly, the washrooms were clean and the sites were very nice. If I had only one thing to suggest, it would be that they create fire pits that allow air underneath and water to drain. When you want to have a fire, air cannot get into the basket and it takes forever fanning the flames to keep the fire going. When you want to put the fire out at night, the water stays in what I can only classify as a metal basket and the next night it is virtually impossible to have a campfire because the water was not able to drain out. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay there. I would recommend this place for others visiting the Cabot Trail.
