We enjoyed our week stay at Red Point. We had a roomy pull-through at the top of the hill and the view into the strait was wonderful. We thought that the sites lower on the hill were much less desirable. For some reason PEI Provincial Parks allows seasonal campers (never saw this in a US State Park) Unless the staff can keep on top of these, they tend to get very ratty looking with piles of junk around which really takes away from the beauty of the campground. That said, with our location on the top of the hill, we didn't have to look at overgrown "back yards" and thought this was one of the top 3 or 4 campgrounds on our 3 month Maritimes and Down East trip. Free Wi-Fi is available at the nearby Souris Visitor's Center

Fundy National Park is gorgeous and the campground is excellent. The sites are not large, but they are comfortable. The park is expensive when you add the daily fee for National Park Admission. Since we were also planning on a visit to PEI National Park we purchased an annual family pass which saved a few dollars. There is a swimming pool in the park, but it is not in the campground. We would definitely stay here again when we return to this part of new Brunswick.

Cedar Dunes is sited directly on the ocean (Northumberland Strait) and the 2-way (W&E) sites 21 to 40 or so are almost directly on the beach--a few feet of grass and then you are in the sand. The hook-ups are set between pairs of sites so that one RV has to back in and the other pull in frontwards. There is sufficient room to pull into the site, unhook, and extract the tow vehicle, but it is close. The view into the strait is extraordinary and this location is a perfect starting place for touring the western end of PEI. Our only complaints are that the sites are rather close together, and there are quite a few seasonal campers whose rigs tended to be old and the sites overgrown and filled with "stuff." The overall beauty of the area makes us rate this park a 9 in spite of the complaints. If you camp in a tent, most of the tent sites have lots of trees and are across a grassy field from the serviced sites (Canadian term)

The rate we paid includes the 50% discount for a "Golden whatever" pass. The additional electric/sewer fees are not discounted. While full hook-ups are available they are generally used for campground hosts and volunteers. We were able to get a full hook-up early in the season as there was no host in our loop. There are some loops with electric at each site, but no water. The sites are level, large, and surrounded by trees; several of the "dry" sites have wonderful views of Cave Run Lake. This is a beautiful location and we will definitely come back here.

This is a nice park. There are a lot of sites, and when full would seem crowded; we were there mid week, and it felt very roomy. All the sites are grassy with a paved back-in driveway with the utilities very convenient at the rear of the site. There were no pedestrian paths to the restrooms, which we thought very odd--one has to walk in the street or cut through campsites. The "Horse Park" is worth the tour (campers get free parking and a discounted admission) and a drive around the nearby blue grass horse farms and distilleries is well worth the price of gas! We would stay here again if we were in the area.

This is a very pretty area, but the campground itself needs a lot of work. There was a lot of trash in the restrooms, and no rangers around except on the week-end. The camp sites are not level, and that is an understatement. The campground is on a very hilly area along a man-made lake, and the sites are all humped in the middle. I needed about 5 leveling blocks under the rear stabilizers when fully extended to reach the pavement and we were on one of the more "flat" sites! Also, the water taps were between sites and even though ours was on the street side of the trailer I still needed 50' of hose to reach our trailer. The location is handy to Mammoth Caves, though.
