it was good. the ground was a bit uneven, and there wasnt a lot of privacy or shade for the tenting sites. our tent nearly blew away multiple times because there was no shade blocking the wind from the mountain the campground is located on. If we had have known that the tenting locations were like this we probably wouldnt have came here, but none the less great facility and clean showers

We were greeted by SUPER friendly people who immediately checked us in and led us to our site even though it was later in the evening. We only spent 1 night there but will DEFINATELY be spending more time there and always tell others it is a campground not to miss out on the service,cleanliness,and just plain friendly people and employees at this special little part of Cape Breton!!!

We thought the campground was nice...could do with some upgrades like a pool, jumpy pillow, etc., Basically a few more things for kids to do.

Great hosts! Very friendly and helpful. Not really a 'swimmable' beach (and no pool). Would stay there again, especially as stopover for Newfoundland Ferry.

We are very happy with our stay at your Kampground. You went out of you way to let us stay at the grounds longer because of our midnight crossing on the NL ferry. We thank you very much

Awesome scenery, Awesome people. Very friendly, helpful staff, look forward to our next visit!

I love KOA camp grounds. The one in Cape Breton had no pool which was disappointing to the kids but had a beautiful view and was right on the ocean which I thought made up for no pool. I would have loved to have had more showers. Other than that the staff were pleasant and very helpful. I would recommend a KOA to friends and family.

Our host Jason was fantastic. Our Marine Atlantic ferry was delayed 14 hours. That put us arriving in North Sydney at 5am. Jason did a great job adjusting schedules and site so that we could get into a pull-through. He even got up at 5am to escort us to our site. How can you ask for anything more.

I really enjoyed my stay. The site was perfect..a little bit of privacy and a lot of services. The location was excellent for the visiting of Gros Morne. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this campsite to all my friends. thank you. Hélène Lamirande

This camp site is very well run with all of the accommodations... fully enjoyed my stay... will stop back in when out in that area again.

Our stay was good. The park was clean and neat, staff was very helpful. Only 2 things would be good to fix. I couldn't use the Wi-Fi at my site due to poor signal strength and there is no TV. I understand the problems with both but possibly the owners could find a fix for these. I would stay here again without issue.

Let me say that Jason and Glenna were more than helpful.They went above and beyond to help us.From getting us a rental car for the Cabot Trail(because our RV was too big) to offering great advice for touring the area. We would stay again!

We stayed at this campground for two evenings while in Cape Breton. It's central location allowed us to explore the Cabot Trail and Ingonish Beach as well as the sites nearer Sydney such as the Miner's Museum and Marconi centre in Glace Bay as well as the Fortress of Louisburg. I will stay here again.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Desk clerk went above and beyond and helped out. Facility very clean. I would definitely consider staying at another KOA during future travels.

Love the site. The scenery is breath taking. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I LOVE that they have a fenced in agility course/dog park. I love the proximity to the ferry going to NL. We will stay there annually.

It's a very beautiful campground. My top 5 since 40 years camping. I like the view with de Bras D'or Lake. In french : Nous avons aime lemplacement. Ce terrain fait parti de mon top 5 depuis 40 ans de camping. Nous avons surtout appr/ci/ la vue sur le Bras dOr Lake.

We used your campground to leave our unit while we toured Newfoundland. It was also a great place to do laundry etc. ready for the next leg of our trip.

No propane refill at Or near site even though at booking they said there was. Said we had a wooded site. No! It was a gravel parking lot. Not Happy! 2 hours drive to get propane.
Aug 10, 2012
We stayed in a kabin and it was really nice. It was clean and just right for us. We look forward to coming again. We are looking for a small travel trailer so that we might come a bit more often.

Friendly people and no demon children running loose and screaming!

Torn about this campground. WiFi didn't work and we got dinged for a full night stay on our way back through the area even though it was totally out of our control. One of the hosts seemed to blame anything wrong on the campers. On the other hand, they made some concessions and suggestions that saved us a few bucks on our stay. I might stay here again if in the area or may try a nearby private.
