Site #26 was very nice, near the showers which were MUCH nicer than the Cheticamp Cape Breton Campground. This section of the park does not have firepits which we liked very much, no smoky air giving a headache overnight. Campers are quiet and very friendly. We were only able to find Wifi at the library down the road 3 miles. You must go in and show ID and they issue you the password etc. It is possible to sit in your car/RV outside but the signal is weaker than in the library. We would definitely go back to Broad Cove CG if we are in the area. Eat at Main Street restaurant, good food and great baked goods to-go at very reasonable prices. Only laundry facilities in area are in a small campground nearby behind Dino's Store (they run that campground). We did not use it but it is the only one available. Rate shown is senior discounted. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large open sites for RVs with hookups. Tent sites were more wooded. Very nice showers. Trails led out of the campground. Very quiet during the week, more crowded on the weekend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 8 nights because we really wanted to hike as many trails as possible. The campground was busy and crowded. While most of the people were very friendly, the site next to ours had a fire pit nearly under our slide out. Park staff were friendly but not overly helpful on places to shop or dine. The beach was really cool. Gee you are in Cape Breton so you just deal with a crowded, noisy campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate was with weekly discount. We already had the Parks Annual Pass - otherwise you pay an additional daily fee. Very helpful park employees. Beautiful location with walking paths and lots of nature; rocky beach is 1/2 mile away from RV sites. There are different sections for serviced and non-serviced sites. If you can boon dock, I would choose the non-serviced sites since they are much less crowded, surrounded by trees and much more private. We stayed in the serviced area. Level site, good utilities. Water hook-up was below the ground so our water filter would not fit. No firewood for sale so plan on buying it in town. Only a few sites have a fire ring. Laundry facility at the nearby commercial campground is pretty terrible - try to avoid it. Groceries in town are tourist-priced so stock up in Sydney or another bigger city. One warning about driving here, there is one killer hill (I think at Smokey Cove) that must be 13+% grade; uphill when coming from Baddeck and a brake-smoking downhill when driving from Ingonish towards Baddeck. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Some open and some sites among some trees, but not enough to make campsites private. Quite busy though not completely full this time of year. Restrooms were adequate. Nice beach down the road that you could walk to if you wanted a short hike, otherwise you can drive to it. Near towns with good seafood restaurants or markets to purchase fresh lobster and fish to cook yourself. Rate was with a National park pass so we didn't have to pay extra entrance fees. Well worth it if you are staying a number of nights or visiting several of the Canadian National Parks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were in a 40 foot motorhome. Our site was spacious and there were roads and trails to walk the dogs. Would have liked to stay longer. There was a great walk to the beach. There were no 50 amp sites and no WiFi but other than that it was a great campground. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The campground was very clean and one of our favorites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are more packed in than in Cheticamp, we had some trouble finding a suitable sized site for our 2 hammocks. Eventually we found site #213 which was great. There were no issues with staff when our original site was not acceptable to find a new one. Getting there early at check-in allows minimum issues. We didn't explore the 1-100 sites, maybe they are better, but we found that 200-250 were tight. We camped here in a Tent.
This is a wonderful park on wonderful Cape Breton Island. We stayed for 5 days in a level, large, and private site. The park itself is spotless. A short and easy trail takes you from the campground to a beautiful, red-sand, beach that is very private and with few people on it. It's lovely and great for walking. The park staff was informed, polite, and helpful. Finding a replacement tire for our trailer in a very remote area of Nova Scotia. These Canadians know how to run a park! If you visit here, don't miss the walk out to the small cemetary for sailors lost at sea off of nearby White Point. Cape North and Cabot Bay are to your left and both are spectacular! It's a very special place. There is also a great walking beach at Cabot's Landing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is beautiful campground in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The sites are very large, level, and include both back-ins and pull-throughs in sun or shade (Evergreen and birch trees abound). This makes a good base camp for exploration of the national park, the Cabot Trail & surrounding small communities. The national park has many opportunities for hiking/walking, nature programs, and general sight-seeing. There are many whale-watching cruises available in the area, and the sand beaches on the Cabot Trail had many folks enjoying the surf, even in September. There is a walking trail from Broad Cove Campground to an ocean beach. We were traveling on the shoulder season, and had no problem in obtaining a beautiful site for 6 days over the Labor Day holiday. NOTE: This park does not take reservations, and I think that it would probably be full in the July-August high season. We thoroughly camping at this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
