It's a shame that this was the least visited park in the PEI National Park. It was simply peaceful & beautiful. We walked the floating boardwalks up the sand dune. Once you're at the top of the dune you can see the gulf on one side & all of the floating boardwalks on the other. You can walk down the... More

Prince Edward Island National Park is fairly narrow, as it runs along the northern coast of Prince Edward Island. However, what it misses in girth, it makes up for it beauty. This place is certainly work visiting. I was here in October 2014, so it wasn't exactly peak season. There wasn't anyone at any of the booths, so I entered... More

We toured the beach, braving the brisk wind to photograph and seek shells and sea glass. Because it was past the end of the season, we encountered very, very few people and had the beaches to ourselves.

We camped two nights this past September at the Cavendish camp ground. It is a wonderful campground. We have a pop up and had our choice of many nice sites. The park has a laundry, showers, flush toilets and you are steps away from a beautiful beach! Most sites have electric and water. Many nice drive thru sites for larger... More

To really enjoy this park, you must visit just before sunset and stay for the whole show...Watching the sun go down over the water is a holy experience. And the best part of the show is after the sun actually goes down, watching the sky change colors. There's nothing like it -- each night is different. It's amazing. And we... More

Stayed for 3 nights at the Cavendish campground on a site right on the ocean, which was really beautiful. No privacy between those sites, but others have trees around - we wanted the view so didn't care. Bathrooms are a bit of a walk, but just fine - very clean like all Canadian parks! There is a laundry house and... More

Don't skip the visitor center, compact but loaded with information and things to be learned about wildlife, vegetation and the rare type of dunes. The boardwalk mostly floats, great views of the lake and marshes. We found leopard frogs in the mud at the far end. Use the handrail if others are walking on the boardwalk... it floats therefore it... More

I camped here when I was very young and one thing I remembered was how beautiful it was. I was finally able to return with my wife and daughter and was not disappointed. We camped at one of the oceanview spots at Cavendish campground for one night. We were able to wander up and down the beach and the "squeaking"... More

We set out for a visit of harsh coastline as a variation on our other Canada experiences to date. The Park dud not let us down. Magnificent views over beaches and coastline pounded by the waves. Worth a visit - take a bicycle as there are plenty of easy tracks to follow.
