My husband and I are heading to NS next weekend. We have 6 nights set aside for Cape Breton Island. We want to spend our days hiking and relaxing and we are planning to camp. Right now, we are thinking 2 nights at Broad Cove Park, 2 nights at Meat Cove Campground, 2 nights at Cheticamp Park, but I have not booked anything yet. I have a few questions:
- Do I need to book sites in advance?
- Have we choosen good overnight locations for seeing and hiking the Cabot Trail
- Are we best with provincial parks, or should we try private campgrounds? We do want to be able to go out for dinners, are the parks isolated?
Thank you very much in advance for any help.
