We found this place accidentally when bad weather forced us away from the coast. What a treat! I only wish we could have spent longer there. Charming, varied landscape, beautifully kept, with a fun smattering of pigs and cows, but also 3 beaver dams out back that are easily accessible, and a fun little trail through the berch woods. A...

The Mermaid and the Cow has been our summer "home away from home" for the past 3 years. Jane, the proprietor, is helpful and informative-well beyond anything I have experienced in all my camping years. Her spacious, bucolic landscape is meticulously maintained, as are all the facilities (pool, wash house, screened activities center, sites, etc.) As a retired teacher, I... More

I absolutely recommend this ideal spot. It is so scenic, so peaceful, so clean, and reasonable too. The campground exceeded any expectations I had. The owner is 100% genuinely kind and helpful. I adored the heated pool and glorious views , walking paths, a stream, and farm setting. I wish I'd stayed longer.

My partner and I stumbled onto this gem in 2012 when all the "regular" campgrounds were packed for the New Glasgow music festival. Being LGBT friendly (friends and family), we felt we would be comfortable, and we received the warmest welcome we have ever gotten at any of the dozens of campsites we have stayed at in Canada. The location... More

My husband and I don’t usually seek out LGBT venues but found ourselves at the M&C on a holiday weekend having a most fabulous time! With its pastoral setting this campground is a true getaway that revealed itself to be a productive birding spot as well. And if you enjoy meeting interesting people, spend some time with Jane. She is... More

If you are looking for a wonderful LGBT friendly campground, this is an excellent destination. Not LGBT? Not a problem. Jane and Susan invite all LGBT and LGBT-friendly campers into their multi-hectared living room and treat everyone to that famous Maritime hospitality the whole time you're there. The campground is clean and well maintained with spacious sites throughout. It features... More

We've been going to the Mermaid & the Cow to camp for 10 summers. It is a uniquely magical place, where you can pitch your tent under an apple tree, watch the moon rise over the mountains, relax and spend time with friends (or make new ones!). In our view, it's the best of both worlds - you can enjoy... More

We had planned to tent camp here one night on our 10 day maritime road trip. We ended up not getting there till late, so we upgraded to the cabin instead and were delighted by Jane's hospitality and facilities. I slept on the futon on the screen porch watching the stars and my travel companion slept in the loft. We... More
