My wife read on line that the Provincial parks are banning alcohol use between Friday and Mondays?? To enjoy a wee dram on the weekends are we going to have to hide in our campers?
Where would you recommend staying on PEI? Is it worth it to visit Isle De La Madelaine?
Thanks for your input
Sorry to take so long to reply...just catching up on my reading! We just got back from one of the provincial parks in PEI...didn't even notice the drinking ban! The provincial parks are a good bet...located all over the Island, usually well-maintained, not too crowded $24.50/night. The only private park I have much experience with is Marco Polo near Cavendish...very big, well-managed, great for kids...relatively expensive.

Shoot any other questions you have my way....
P.S. I've never been to Madeline...but unless you are into bicycling, I've heard it's pretty blah... plus I hate ferry rides longer than 20 minutes!
