It was beautiful after 2 days of snow. So clear and I could see so far! The wind was very cold. It was Feb and we had just had 2 days of snow, but wouldn't have missed it.

We went here on a really really foggy day, which meant we couldn't see very far away. But we knew the place is still amazingly beautiful! Check out the pictures for more details!

This is a wonderful place to visit. Rolling hills of grass, lots of trails, overlooking the water. There is a small sandy beach you can walk down to. It is gorgeous. I have been here many times and it never gets old.

Gorgeous views of several islands from the point near the lighthouse. It's probably half a mile hike from the parking area, so take some good boots.

There was a little more traffic than we would have liked and the rolling hills get your attention. It's definitely worth the trip down. The light house isn't impressive in size but it's a neat area to visit.

We rode our bicycles out to Cattle Point from town. It is absolutely beautiful. We saw lots of deer and a bald eagle. Left our bikes in a rack and had a great walk on a beautiful beach. Don't miss this area!

We loved it, we walked along the beach for a couple of hours, lots of information on the American and Canadian forces and where they set up camps, just extremely relaxing and beautiful

This area is less forested than the English Camp on the Northwest side of the island. There are rolling grass-covered hills and beautiful ocean views. At American Camp there are several trails through the grass and down to the water. At Cattle Point you can visit a couple of pretty beaches with lots of driftwood and views across to other... More

Some short trails to the beach overlooking lots of driftwood. Completely empty on the day we went. Did not see any sea life just birds floating on driftwood.

A wonderful landscape. Driving till Cattle point is very scenic. Cattle point is great place for picnic. If you are going for picnic there, word of caution there is no dustbin, please carry your garbage with you., cannot dump it there. Great views and some simple walks to explore the terrain. Not crowded. Close to south beach.
