Wonderful views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and red sandstone cliffs, rock formations, dunes, and grassy and wooded areas make Prince Edward Island a great place to visit. Excellent photo ops and an opportunity to relax in a peaceful setting made this one of the best stops on our tour of PEI.

This is one of the most beautiful parks I've ever seen. With its red sandstone cliffs, grassy dunes, woods, and beaches, this park has something for everyone. The information signs along the way make it an educational adventure, too.

We camped on PEI just outside of the park August 9 - this is just a quick note to be prepared for mosquitoes morning, noon and night - even when it is raining. If you are biking on the paved bike paths or at the beach you are good to go but if you take any of the trails off... More

Sweeping views of the Gulf of St Lawrence. The red clay cliffs are striking. Great photo ops. There are Adirondack chairs where one can sit and contemplate the endless blue of the Gulf.

What a beautiful park! I can't stop thinking about our amazing 4 days there. Ahhhh...hope we'll return soon. We stayed at Stanhope Campground. The sites were small, but the bathrooms were lovely - recently remodeled. They also had dishwashing sinks and laundry facilities - quite a bonus! While we weren't within sight of the ocean, we could hear the waves... More

Great beaches. big park with lots of choices, good for those busy hot summer days (you'll be able to find a spot without being over crowded)

The park has a few different beautiful walks, the longest being 4.5 km of moderate level, ending with a floating bridge the the dunes. It is well-marked and the only drawback is the steep steps/slant that have plastic mesh and can tear exposed skin.

The floating boardwalk through to the parabolic sand dunes at Greenwich was amazing. Every few steps it seemed like you needed to stop to take another photo as the colours, scale and phenomenon was amazing. The Dune walk was meant to be a 90minute return loop but we found it quite gentle and managed it in closer to 60 minutes.... More

Three distinct areas with beauty at every turn. Very little not to like about this wonderful place. Beach, dunes, great ocean, lighthouses, camping, hiking……………. Worth whatever time you have to be outdoors in a great place. If this review is helpful then please indicate so below.
