Restrooms, showers, and laundry clean and well maintained. We stayed here 5 days, booked it blind. Sites are close together. We had shade trees BUT campsites 1 to 17 are VERY close to Highway 105 and get blasted with truck noise from early morning, through darkness. The map of the campsite we were handed at the entry is wrong. It indicates that the highway is some distance away whereas in reality it is on an angle that cuts close to the campsites. Check it's layout on Google Earth it's right across the road from the Cabot Trail Campsites (now a KOA). Wi-Fi is poor. Pool and playground are nice if you have kids. Want quiet, go elsewhere or make sure you pick one of the sites not listed above. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We arrived at Adventures East for a 7 night stay. We were assigned site 24. We found the site to be adequate size for our 37', four slide 5th wheel camper. We had a nice stand of trees shielding us from the site next to us on the awning side of the camper. That worked well for us. The sites here are quite narrow, if all sites are filled, campers are quite tight to each other. We were permitted to set up a kids tent on our site. The kids enjoyed the pool. The pool house had bathrooms, showers and the laundry. All was very clean and neat. A fire ban was in effect for the entire week. We could not have a campfire. The danger level was red (level 4) when we arrived, but was downgraded to blue (level 2) while we were here. The ban was not lifted. We missed having a campfire. They have free Wi-Fi, but the connection was frustratingly slow most of the time we were here. This is why we rated this campground a 9 rather than a 10. We would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very convenient campground to tourist areas on Cape Breton Island: Baddeck, Bras d'Or Lake, Cabot Trail. Clean, well-kept and quiet. All sites are back-ins, quite a number in an open field as you first arrive, with several in under trees further in to the park. Being off peak season, we were allowed to chose our site with the manager recommending 2 because of our size. Roadway in the campground was packed gravel and sites are clearly marked. We chose our site and felt it was a nice size for our rig (35', 3 slides, 2 awnings). Other sites were not as deep or wide. A few of the wooded sites back to the "highway" so they could be noisy during the day, but traffic was light at night so I don't think there'd be as much of a noise issue. Bathrooms and showers were clean and did not look or feel their age (manager said they were 20 years, I'd have guessed 5). Laundry has 4 washers and 4 dryers. Swimming pool was not open when we were here, but they were getting it ready. Small playground for kids. Adventures East has 3 cottages for rent and just a few seasonal campers. Manager was very informative on area with numerous suggestions of places to go see and do. Although they are not on the water, there is a place to put your boat in to Bras d'Or Lake right at the bottom of their campground road. We loved the convenience of putting our kayaks in. Great place for eagle watching. We chose this campground because they are Passport America. We would return here if our travels bring us this way again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We made reservations through C2C and thus the rate of $10. We were fortunate to get a site that would accommodate our 43' Motor Home. The manager was exceptional and so accommodating. We arrived prior to the holiday weekend and it really filled up over the weekend. The restrooms and showers were spotless. Wi-Fi was very fast. Pool was clean, but we did not use it. This park has had some bad reviews in the past, but I found it to be a great place to stay. Few amenities, but we do not need to be entertained. It is so convenient to doing the Cabot Trail and also did a day trip to Louisbourg. We'd come back to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though the previous review warned that a 40 ft motorhome would not fit, we thought we'd try it based on the good reviews from 2010. We paid the Coast to Coast rate and proceeded to the site assigned. No way could we park there. We got a refund and went to a nice park a couple of miles down the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We made a reservation for this park online after reading reviews here. We did not stay though. The sites are anything but level and absolutely impossible for larger rigs. they might be ok for a shorter MH or a fiver, but with a 40' MH no chance. We were guaranteed satellite view, but all sites are wooded. The staff here has no clue, but stayed friendly when we decided to leave. (We went then across the street to another campground which was almost perfect.) We camped here in a Motorhome.
Comments of the previous review are spot on except the Wi-Fi was quite weak where we were parked. Sites are about 35' wide with most of the 3 way sites in the upper area. Nice growth between sites but may prevent extension of slides on many. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rest rooms and showers were spotless, great hot water. Wi-Fi very fast. Pool was clean but we did not use it. This park has had some bad reviews in the past but I find it to be a great place to stay. Few amenities but we do not need to be entertained. Our rate was for C to C thus the $10. We have yet to see the management. As we just pulled in and chose our site. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a nice and convenient campground, not exceptional in any way, just a nice, easy to get into and out of campground. The pool was nice, as we were there during the week, it was pretty much deserted. The washrooms/showers were very clean and neat. The actual sites themselves were mostly treed and ours backed onto the forested area and was fairly level. Baddeck is a short drive away and well worth visiting. If you get the chance take in a celidh (say it like kaillie). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Functioned well for us while visiting Cape Breton. We're C2C members. The pool seemed very nice, and one the weekend families made extensive use of it. Road in/out is only wide enough for one vehicle, and there is no way of seeing what is coming from either direction. Tight getting into some sites. We were in the upper section and could get satellite using tripod, but at the first hint of rain, lost the signal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although this park had full service hookups and met our needs, I do think it is misrepresented in the camping books. It does not deserve the accolades it gives itself. This park has a high amount of dust in the air due to the roads, the sites are muddy and uneven and there is no office or internet access available. We stayed as Coast-to-Coast members so, it was worth what we had to pay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very accommodating staff ( the gate person is the staff ). Not much to do at the park. Pool closed when we were there and their showers were being renovated. Sinks/commodes were in clean working shape.We did get a satellite signal but had to park in the lower water/elec area only. No sewer. This area also was not level and they had some water/ soggy site problems. They have a restaurant ( Red Barn ) about 1/2 mile away. The Bell Museum and downtown Baddeck is about 10 minutes away. Worth seeing. They now have competition across the street but we stayed here because we are Coast to Coast Members and the 8.00 per night price was hard to pass up. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
