There is a little market on Saturdays, bought an amazing rope mat for the best price around, beeswax products, homemade jams from real people that makes things. Nothing here made in China, but Spencers Island.

Stopped for the farmers market on Sunday from 1-4. Bought some jams and fudge from a nice older couple. There were about 6 vendors. A nice gift shop next door with a wide variety of items to choose from.

We stayed here for a couple of days. Beautiful location. Owners were great. Was awesome walking out during low tide. Loved the fire pits at the water edge. Great for watching the tide.

You can set up your camper right on the beach. Beautiful beaches to walk on, visit the lighthouse, check out the beach cafe, or go to the small shop of Sun Moon and Stars to check out some local artists work.

I enjoyed my stay at the Old Shipyard Beach Campground. Noreen and Bob Kimber were extremely hospitable. We enjoyed our bond fire and lobster on the beach after a long day of beach combing. Thank you Bob and Noreen. We will be back next year....More

Quaint little beach with camping park and restaurant. Has a gift shop near by as well as a lighthouse. Home of The Mary Celeste. Very interesting area.

Special sites right on the edge of the water at high tide. Beautiful view of the Bay of Funday. Fascinating to watch the 40' tide change. Renovated Lighthouse/Museum very interesting and well-done. Bobby and Noreen delightful and knowledgeable hosts. So glad we went there first!
