Camp grounds in PEI, Nova Scotia & Cape Breton

Good Evening..

We are planning to go to PEI, Nova Scotia & Cape Breton next summer for 3 weeks. My daughter is going to Scout Jamboree in Halifax for a week.

I have emailed a couple of campgrounds and their sites are starting to book for next year already, so I have to get planning..

We are looking to do a little sight seeing, with a liberal amount of relaxing at the campground, so I am looking for advice on picturesque campgrounds on the ocean that would support a 42' 5ver on 30/50 amp pull thru site. I am hoping something near cliffs etc.

Any recommendations on attractions, bars, restaurants would be helpful as well.

thanks Jeff

We stayed at:
- Quebec City KOA, very nice
- Jellystone in Woodstock, NB, OK if you have young children
- Bay of Fundy NP, similar to an Ontario Provincial Park but it poured rain while we there so couldn't explore much. Might try Ponderosa Pines Campground next time. Close to Anne of Green Gables Village and an amusement park.
- Cavendish KOA, very nice, very friendly people, beautiful area
- North Sydney KOA, nice but no fire pits. Would probably try a campground in Baddeck next time.
- Halifax West KOA (Upper Sackville), very nice, great place to use as home base to explore the area.
- Mactaquac Provincial Park, near Frederickton, NB, very nice but sites were not private
- Mallorytown KOA, very nice

We did the trip in 2.5 weeks staying at each place no more than 2 or 3 nights. Of all the places we stayed I would only "not recommend" Jellystone but there is a great truck stop restaurant there in Woodstock, NB.
