We had chosen a dite but discovered it was too small. It was a busy time and they offered us an overflow site. Be careful as the sites tend to be long but not deep. Regardless they wete very accomodatiing.

I love this area for walking. Its also a great camping area/ picnic area. The setting is mostly located in a wooded area which is great for the look and feel of a campground setting.

Caribou Island Provincial Park is a lovely spot for a picnic, a day at the Beach, or a long walk on the beach.

Lovely warm water and nice sand. Absolutely enormous expanse of waterfront but found it a bit crowded. Recommend Blue Sea Provincial Park beach instead for quieter place and warmer waters.

Beautiful view! Huge picnic area with full sun or shady areas. Plenty of rest rooms. The beach is very long and half sandy half rocky. Lots of sea life! A great camp ground as well. Miss this place and make it a point everytime I...More
