It costs twice as much as provincial camp grounds, the staff are crabby, showers are awful and the plots are super close together. Somebody I met there received a $300 fine because a noise complaint was filed against her, because of her 2 small children being loud JUST after quiet time. They will suck your wallets dry. It's a shame... More

Well, another fabulous year at Tribune Bay. Everyone's reviews are right. I wish the management/owners would redo the showers and washhouse and update the toilets. The overall campsite needs work. Yes, it's close camping, and that layer of Hornby dirt stays on everything until you get home. BUT ... I love it! The co op, the shops, going to The... More

This is not on the beach. There is a private property between the campground and the water. It was a 10 minute walk from our campsite to the water. We rented a double site for our extended family of 7. There wasn't a spot to pitch a tent that was level. The picnic table was on a slant. The ground... More

We were in the 'family' section of the camp. People are close together with not much privacy. Our neighbors with company vehicles, prolix painting, decided to drink and party until 2:30am in the morning on night one. Their dog was loose and was roaming around and ate our dog's food. We complained, but the campground still let them stay another... More

Arrived to a campsite littered with beer bottles and cans, my site, like most others in this camp appeared to be one campsite merged into two. Tents where pitched feet away from my picknick table and tent. There was at least 8 tents within 10 meters of my campsite. People carry on with all kinds loud inebriate behavior all through... More

This campsite has a great location near the co-op and Tribune Bay Park and Beach. There are too many sites at this campground so there is a feeling of overcrowdedness when the place is full, which is most summer weekends. During our stay from July 12 to 19, we noticed that the so-called 10pm quiet time is not adhered to... More

I and my family were excited and skeptical about visiting this place. Despite reviews posted to this site. Upon arrival to our campsite we were blown away that 2 trailerswere to fit on this lot. there is no privacy, at all. Breakfast and dinners were not even 10 feet away from our neighbors. the showers were filthy and the only... More

I'm not gonna lie -- I was quite apprehensive about camping at this site, given the negative reviews. But I took a chance, and I'm so glad I did! The campground was lovely, and the location cannot be beat. It's not wilderness camping by any means - it's busy with lots of kids and the sites are small, but it... More

We had a great time even with a last minute booking. We got one of the busiest traffic sites and everything was great with no problems at all. Kids loved it and we will be staying here again next year.

The Manager, Linda, was very friendly on the phone when I booked and again when I checked in. This large campsite has billions of kids running and riding around. This is why my children had such a ball. They linked up with other kids at the playground, rode to the beach and to the Co-op and had that feeling of... More
