Clearly on their website they have a midweek special where you stay two nights and get the 3rd free with the only stipulation being that it is not available on long weekends. When checking in I showed the owner this ad on my phone and he refused to honour it, saying it isn't available in July or August. Not only... More

Clean, not massive pitches but ample enough for our 30ft RV. It was quite quiet at the time of our visit as it was mid-week in June. Nice children's play park (looks quite homemade but adequate enough!). Also access on to the trans-Canada trail from the campground.

That's about the only positive thing I can say about this campground... The grass was well kept and litter- free. Campsites were incredibly small, pool was very small, only 2 stalls per male/ female bathrooms and 2 stalls in a unisex bathroom for entire campground!! And boy do they need updating!! Camp office wasn't open the several times we attempted... More

This is the second year we stayed at Birchwood Campground.It is just minutes from Pictou, so it is great if you want to go to Lobster Carnival.It is very clean and kept up nicely. I've stayed at this campground in both a tent and trailor and both experiences were awesome.Highly recommend.

Nothing special here, but nice staff, site more than big enough (38' 5th Wheel), clean bathrooms and close to Pictou and the PEI ferry. Wifi is a little slim and there are no laundry facilities, but other than that, quiet and pleasant.

Our family has been travelling up to Birchwood for 3 years now. The new owners (2011) are fantastic. Campground is kid friendly and cozy. Close to amenities and one of the top 10 ranked beaches in Canada, Caribou (#7). Directly adjacent to TransCanada trail. Great for biking, hiking, running and ATV's (no issues). We have visited over 10 campgrounds in... More

We have just gotten home from a fantastic 4 night stay. This was our first time here, but would go back in a minute. The campground was clean well maintained and everyone was very helpful, and friendly. The only possible negative would be that the sites are a little on the small side, but overall it was great. Location is... More

We like to camp a lot and usually camp far from home but this week we were camping with some friends who were first time campers so we thought we should just stay close to home. We've camped at Caribou campground before but not Birchwood so we decided to try Birchwood. It is our new favorite campground! Both Helen and... More
