“lovely location and lots of character”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

Jumping Mouse provides a wonderful camping experience in a lovely location overlooking the ocean. The tent sites are terraced into a grassy hill with trees and meadow between each site for privacy. The shower was hot and the outhouses were clean. I enjoyed the "back to the earth" atmosphere of the place which resonates through the landscaping and the facilities, such as the artfully placed whale bones and the shower built onto the side of the barn...the only minor irritation was that the fishing boats made a lot of noise when leaving the harbor, so sleeping in was not easy. But this meant I was awake for sunrise, so no complaints!

We stayed at their cabin, which was wonderful. A small, quiet campground.

The host, Margrit, was very accommodating and amazing. The cabin has two bunk beds, so as a couple this was our night to sleep apart. The view of Bay St Lawrence is amazing. In the morning we watched the boats do their fishing thing.

The other camp sites we browsed at this location were well groomed. They weren't crowded together side by side, which was nice to see in a campground.

The hot showers, electric kettle, WiFi and books were available at the office.

Only thing that a non-seasoned camper would probably have issues was, the traditional out-house toilet. No flushing toilets at this site. Neither my boyfriend or I had issues with it, it was very clean and less than a minute from the cabin.

Wow. This is definitely one of the most gorgeous spots in Canada. It is a very small, quiet nook at the end of the world, right on the Atlantic Ocean. My partner and I spent an amazing evening watching the sunset and literally WHALES feeding, all right from our picnic table. If you're looking for simplicity and quiet (also no mosquitoes!!!), you've found the right spot. No frills, but clean and everything you need for a "back to the land" adventure.
