    Excellent base location in the hear of Cape Breton. Do not be afraid of any reviews that discourage travelling here with a large trailer. We have a 30 foot travel trailer with a large 3/4 ton truck tow vehicle and had zero issues getting to this park. We did our research on the area before arriving and found that a lot of reviews claimed the Cabot Trail to be a difficult drive when towing (we even had friends that laughed at us when we said we were pulling our trailer out there). But in all honesty, it was a breeze. We just took our time and watched the signs. Never once did we have any issues with any of the 'hair pin' turns.

    The park itself was perfect. Easy check in at the gate house, easy layout for the lots to find our site, full hook ups, laundry facilities, playground for kids, beach and well identified pathways when on foot. Close to town for all amenities including groceries, a hardware store and banking. We're used to Ontario Provincial Park camping so the drive through lots with little spacing between your neighbours was a bit of a change for us, but overall it worked out perfectly as our home base for exploring the area.

    Easily accessible off the Cabot Trail and behind the Keltic Lodge. A nice walk up and down small hills along a peninsula jutting off near Ingonish. The north part of the loop section of the trail is closed due to storm damage. Still it was a great out and back walk with beautiful coastal views and some points for bird watching at the point.

    Well... it's popular for a reason! The landscape is beautiful, the village is cute, but it is touristic, expect a lots of people.

    Loved this experience! I've a head for heights so I took it in my stride, but even my husband who's a little 'swoony' was excited and gelt safe. Happy to do it again when I come back!

    A short stroll on a boardwalk provides a lot of information about the place. Went there on a foggy day which made it very appealing

    Great view of the falls if you can walk down the stairs to the lower viewing deck. You park about 200 meters from the falls. Cross over an old bridge and down the stairs. You might want to bring a swimsuit for a dip in the pool at the bottom. There is a washroom at the bridge and a few spots to have a picnic.

    It is only about 2km but it is up the hill so not always that easy. But totally worth it for the view at the top. You go through 3 old growth forest types...that are enjoyable. There are places to rest along the trail if need be.

    Chris and his wife Lynn have closed Lynn's Craft shop which held Chris's Gallery of works where you could see and purchase his work. He is still painting however and his work can be found around the island. One location for his Watercolours and Oil work as well as prints and cards is the Colouratura Fine Art Gallery, 45943 Cabot Trail,Indian Brook, NS. 902-929-2324

    Awesome service. Lovely clean room with everything we needed. Delicious breakfast and chat with Ryan in the morning. The checkin was seamless. The photos are true to life. The gelato is delicious.

    Trail circles the lake and has some pretty spots. Picnic area at the beginning of the trail and a good swimming spot. I would classify this as easy to medium hike. Fairly easy walking with some routes. Beautiful in the fall.

    Quick stop to stretch your legs with awesome views of the Atlantic Ocean. Requires walking over the large rocks. Fairly easy walk but requires supervision of pets and children as there are many crevices between the rocks.

    This was a surprising stop. The little church was gorgeous, easy parking and worth the 10 minutes it takes. PS They also have a bathroom which was an unexpected bonus.
