Very, very friendly staff - was chatty and showed us all the sites personally! Wi-Fi available on all sites and is actually working pretty well (was usable for browsing and mail from inside camper). Toilets are bad and the hikes are not that well maintained (plants and trees are not cut, you have to duck often). This is of course understandable for such a small campground, but one can get surprised especially when having done hikes in the National Park before coming here. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Dry camping on a spectacular cliff top cove at the tip of Cape Breton, perfect for whale watching. Sites are grassy, including fire pits w grills. They have flush toilets & (pay) hot showers in season (June 1-Sept 30), but allow free camping with pit toilets out of season. There are several nearby trails, one of which leads to a protected sandy beach. Meat Cove is 17.5 miles off the Cabot Trail at Cape North, of which <5 miles is 2 lane dirt road , well graded (at least while we were there), and the grades nothing compared to what you traverse on the Cabot Trail to get this far. There is one large level shelf that the manager said he had hosted a 57' rig the previous week, however with most sites hilly, and no dump station available (not to mention steep grades on Cabot Trail), is probably better suited to smaller rigs and tents. There is a small chowder hut on site, serving breakfast, lunch or dinner. Internet is available at the Meat Cove Tea Room -tourist info at the entrance to the village. I gave it a lower rating due to lack of sewer dump, however the friendly,helpful staff, peaceful & spectacular setting rate a 12! We camped here in a Tent.
