I can't say enough about this place. The scenic beauty here at Greenwich National Park is spectacular! My family and I did the trail to the beach through the coastal forest and dunes, which was just beautiful. Definitely worth seeing. Hope to be back someday soon!

My husband, son and I stayed two nights in late July in one of the new oTENTiks at Stanhope Provincial Campground, which is located directly across the road from Stanhope Beach. It was AWESOME. The oTENTik "village" is located in a corner of the campground on a private lane. There are 8 in total, with a brand new washroom/shower facility... More

If you like the sea, you can have it at this campground. Many of the tent sites are hard on the bluff staring out to the Gulf of St Lawrence. Though you end up fairly exposed if a storm comes (as one did - wow), you can easily forget there's anyone else there and lose yourself in the view. The... More

Too many stairs. Not enough ramps. Not enough accessable washrooms. Should be discounted for disabled. Park should be useable to all.

We camped at the national park campground that was well equipped with new show facilities and service to each campground. Although we tent camp, it was nice to have water and electric available right at the site. Only drawback was that many of the campsites are pretty small. This National Park is not like the larger mountainous and scenic national... More

We had heard great things about the Greenwich Dunes trail so we took the drive out for the day. This hiking trail did not disappoint and has so many different landscapes and wildlife to see. The boardwalk is described as the pathway to heaven and that sounds about right. You can see why this trail was awarded the best in... More

The PEI National Parks are spread across much of the coast, but the best bit we saw was Greenwich National Park near Saint Peters Bay. The lake and dunes are great, with lots of wildlife to see. Later in the evening you have the place pretty much to yourself (and a million flies, which were not a big problem).

Got in for free with a discovery park pass. I thought we'd see part of the beach driving through the park, but that wasn't the case. There are tall trees on both sides of the road that blocks off the view. The only way to see the beach is to turn into the parking lots and walk into the beach.... More

Lovely campground, clean, fairly spacious, nice to bike around. Super close to the beach which is private from the main cavendish beach so lots of room. Lifeguard on duty there too. Really quiet, super clean bathrooms, 3 way sites for trailers, will be back next year for sure!! Great playground also for the kids.
