Amazing experience! Everyone is so nice and knowledgeable. Already planning when we can come back.
This was a great spot to camp with very unique sites. Each one different. Everything was clean and I felt at home on the grounds. See you again next year I hope.
Great location and wonderful people. Love the mussel boil at the campfire near the marina, compliments of the hosts. Views are amazing.
Possibly Nova Scotia’s best kept secret! What a beautiful family owned and operated getaway. Free Wi-Fi, morning coffee, and mussels by the campfire!
OMG, this place is awesome, the Murphy’s are great people, met lots of people from all around, USA, Canada, and Germany. Can’t wait to come back next year.

Scenic Boat Tours

We are a pet-friendly campground. All we ask is that pets be kept under your control at all times and that you please clean up after them.
Kayaking is so enjoyable here, with an amazing array of ever changing seascapes and an archipelago of islands stretching all along our unspoiled coastline that allow you to paddle for hours without seeing another soul. Kayak rentals are available nearby.
