The owners were very accommodating when we arrived to occupy our site, and people were still there. They offered another comparable site, but the people left within 15 minutes of our arrival so we were able to take our originally assigned site. Bathrooms/showers were clean. There was a nice playground area for the kids. It was convenient to the town of Pictou for sightseeing. Sites were pretty close together with no buffers, but the wooded sites were nice. Wi-Fi was good and we were able to use our satellite TV. We would come back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly welcome and later in our stay by the new owners as of 2008. The showers were clean but cost a loonie for 4 min. There is no laundry on site. The sites are well manicured and level where we camped near the bath house. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Confrontational, disrespectful management. All is well until your money is received. In more than thirty years of camping and RV'ing to many areas of Canada and abroad, we have not encountered such an experience. Total lack of safety when park maintenance is performed around and near very young and small children using playground and play structures at this campground. High speed mowing and motorized equipment used very close to vehicles and children is beyond belief. This is a tragic accident just waiting to happen. Supervision is a must at this location and any of our attempts to ask for anternate maintenance times went unanswered and safety concerns ignored. We camped here in a Tent.
This is one of two campgrounds listed in Woodall's in Pictou. This one is to the west of the rotary, and the other is to the east. We first tried the other one but it was full of dumpy seasonal units, with no shade. Birchwood is a nice family campground, a little small but very neat. There are a few seasonal units. We stayed in a space at the top of the hill and had to bring out the leveling blocks. On the hill, the sites are a little close together. It doesn't look like a big rig would be able to maneuver in this campground. Would stay here again due to proximity to PEI ferry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
