We spent one night here but it was a special night: The night that Hurricane Dorian hit Nova Scotia, in particular Dingwall that night! Susan put us in the full service cabin because it was better protected. She served up some delicious oysters (pulled right from their oyster beds down the road - fresh!!) even though she was getting everything set up for the storm. The cabin made it through 70-80 mph winds, the winds howled & the rain came down, but no leaks and now damage. The camp grounds are quite extensive, clean bathrooms and lots of wooded areas. It seems like there are 2x as many RV hook ups. It was a lovely part of Cape Breton, on the Cabot Trail, and we highly recommend it.

Good campground with great services for an RV. The owner was very knowledgeable, friendly, the washrooms were clean and the sites were very nice. If I had only one thing to suggest, it would be that they create fire pits that allow air underneath and water to drain. When you want to have a fire, air cannot get into the basket and it takes forever fanning the flames to keep the fire going. When you want to put the fire out at night, the water stays in what I can only classify as a metal basket and the next night it is virtually impossible to have a campfire because the water was not able to drain out. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay there. I would recommend this place for others visiting the Cabot Trail.

This is a nice campground, worth a try. Much nicer than other campgrounds in the area, we did check them out. The bathrooms were clean, and each was a separate “onesie,” with a shower, toilet, and sink...suuuuuper nice!!!! The bathrooms are cleaned EVERY MORNING, despite what other reviewers have said. The views are beautiful, but not as close to the water as I had hoped. The beach is pretty far away, but worth the trip for a gorgeous view and a swim. Bring bug repellent, and preferably a screened tent for outdoor meals. The mosquitoes are viscous. We did have the lobster dinner, which was very well done, even though they were extremely busy that night. I was surprised that the lobster was served cold, but it was delicious anyway, and not over cooked that way for sure. Oysters were to die for. There was no noise after 10, even with a larger group of college students nearby. The owners are lovely, and very hardworking. This is their busiest time, but they were friendly and helpful as can be!

Very nice spot, great views. I would stay there again however our spot was awkward in that if we had a vehicle bigger than a Jetta we would not have been able to park off the road. Tried to move picnic table to allow for more room for car but too biards kept coming off when we tried to move it. Another unfortunate point was the flush washroom near the shelter smelled really bad, almost like it was an outhouse.

We found this place in 1995 and have been going back every 2-year ever since. Owners Alex and Susan Dunphy are fantastic! The place has great accommodations and the view is amazing. The Dunphys have something for everyone: tenting, rv, cyclists, bikers, tiny cabins, large cabins for big families but what they have the most is a feeling of becoming a friend . You will fall in love with the place. Must try their oysters!!
