Campground Reviews

Jul 27, 2013
enjoyed our stay. facilities were clean and comfortable
Jul 27, 2013
Stayed as a central point to visit Cape Breton. Wonderful location and nice hosts. The real down side is the run down look of most of the park. Overall needs a lot of TLC to include paint and basic repair. Seems to be more of a stop for folks taking the NF ferry and not a family vacation destination. I would recommend another park for any extended period of stay.

loved the people who run the campground. very helpful. great views

The staff were so wonderful and friendly. We got off the ferry late at night and they waited and parked the trailer for us after a long day!

Very disappointing. Wifi was nonexistent unless you stayed in the office by router. Microwaves in so called computer room were sooo dirty. Furniture in there was tattered and dirt , ready for garbage bin. Kanin could use a good clean as well. Not recommend this koa to anyone. Scruffy is the word. Not up to standards

Beautiful view. Staff were very accommodating. Washrooms were among the best we've seen. Jason gave us great tips for traveling the Cabot Trail and taking the short ferry to save time. He also lent me a hose extension for my trailer without even needing to ask and he gave my boys a loa frisbee. Great stay.

It was amazing. The owners were nothing but friendly and answered all our questions with smiles on their faces. We will 100% be staying again next year!

Owners and staff went out of their way to assist us. We had some RV problems and they even helped us resolve those issues. Would definitely recommend this campground.

We stayed for 10 days. A great location from which to explore Cape Breton. Well run, tidy, clean and organized. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful. No problems at all.
Jul 24, 2013
The only problem we had was that there is no pool. We probably won't go back because of that.

Given the focus on various rules, I was surprised there was still music playing after 10pm

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

On that evening, our neighbours who live in very close proximity to our campground, were having a 50th anniversary party with live music. Unfortunately, due to the fact that the music was not coming from our property, we were unable to do much about it. They were finished by midnight.

Great location for exploring Cape Breton and NS. The staff was very friendly. Had this park been maintained it would have been rated higher. 1' tall weeds and washboard roads through out. Poor WiFi. Pool converted to K9 Kamp a disaster area. A number of power outages, no fault of the park, yet annoying.

The staff was extremely helpful, and you can't beat the view.
Jul 22, 2013
Nice campground, water pressure fluxs a good bit due to well. Had nice view from my back in site. 5th wheels do not back deep enough makes leaving tight.
Jul 22, 2013
Nice, clean and fun!
Jul 22, 2013
Jason and the gang are absolutely fabulous. They went out of their way to make us feel at home. We look forward to visiting again soon.

Bathrooms kept clean, not much room to back your trailer in on the top portion of the grounds, one mistake and your over the cliff. Mini golf run down and no place for the kids to swim, no beach no pool...very small sites. I've seen better places than this place! I wouldn't go back to this KOA.

We liked it so much the first time that we came back again and stayed for 3 more nights.lovely view fantastic owners and friendly staff. You are so centrally located that it was easy for us to leave for a few hours of sight seeing and return to our trailer for the rest of the day.Nice to see your working on the picnic tables now. Very clean KOA keep up the good work and thanks for the great hospit

This park is starting to get a bit run down. Was disappointed that there was no pool. Was told the beach was not good (cold water and jelly fish) Felt like we were in a seniors camp ground instead of a family friendly. We were although welcomed and looked after with any request.

Tres bonne acceuil tres beau site Supper 5 etoiles pour moi
Jul 17, 2013
Beautiful views! Good security, helpful owners. Traffic noise was the only negative. Will recommend to friends traveling there next year.
Jul 17, 2013
The management allowed us to park our trailer on their property while we did more sightseeing in Glacé Bay . We really appreciated that. Glace Bay was wonderful. We also loved taking photos of the big green bridge.
Jul 16, 2013
Very little activities, no pool or lake. Nice view of the bridge and water, but noisy from traffic. Friendly, helpful staff! No propane available to buy. Need steps up steep hill to office. No security gate. Close to ferry for Newfoundland and Cabot Trail, but national park is a long drive, but worth it! Strong wifi & good fire pits. Tiny store. Showers were very buggy.
Jul 15, 2013
The location was great and the Staff extremely friendly and helpful. I would stay again in a heartbeat !!!
Jul 15, 2013
The ONE and ONLY drawback is that there are no facilities close to the 'big rigs' sites. Big hill to climb!!!! The rest is A-1 and the staff super.

good roads. excellent staff good location. No cable or satellite due to the hill. Nice view of the lake
Jul 15, 2013
We really enjoyed the location. The owners are really accomodating. I found the amenities really good and the bathrooms and the site were clean. Our picnic table was wabbly and some boards were rotten. Satisfied none the less. Good wifi finally.
