We have just returned home after a week's stay and wish we could have stayed longer.This campground appeals to the "real camper " in me and we have visited often in the past 13 years.We first experienced the M&C as tenters, then in a pop-up, and now in our 5th-wheel and we have found this to be a clean, comfortable,...

The campground is amazing. The facilities are the cleanest that I have seen at all the campgrounds that I have been to. The owner is friendly and really cares about the people that visit here. It is peaceful and so enjoyable. Everyone that visits this campground is made feel so welcome by Jane the owner. What I really enjoy about... More

We came across this campsite whilst plotting a trip on google maps and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. The owner was extremely welcoming and took the time to show us around and answer any questions. The bathroom and shower facilities were the best we have seen at any campsite - private, clean and spacious. Overall there... More

The Mermaid and the Cow calls to a diversity of campers. For those who love nature, farms, green spaces it is ideal. The pool is clean and refreshing. The ocean is a 10 minute drive. I love the quiet tranquility and the extra-ordinary hospitality at this lovingly tended campground.

We were warmly greated and attended to by Jane (and Susan), passionate about ensuring her guests are happy, comfortable, and truly passionate about looking after her hobby farm (cattle, sheep,...

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
