“Look in the caves”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Found this gem quite a while ago and have since taken many friends and visitors. It is close to Lunenbourg so can be combined with a trip there. You can go on a trail which leads up through the cliffs and right into some caves. The sounds of the ocean there are fantastic and the area is very scenic. I believe there is also a camping area in the park. Well worth the detour during your day trip.

“The views are spetacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

To get into see the two caves you have access to is too pricey for a family and there were no family discounts. It looks like a great place to go camping though.

“Great Familly Camping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

This park may be a little dated, but the things to do there are endless. you can try your hand at gold panning hours of fun and you will find gold amazing. If you get tired of panning for gold you can walk the caves they are incredible. The view unbelievable ocean and wildlife. They have great entertainment at the lodge in the evenings. Kids really loved the karaoke so did the big kids the parents. We were there last Canada day and are booked for this year. By the way the fireworks are going to be great this year. Our own privat show for eveyone.

“Great Family Site”

Excellent camping in the rough for families. If you pitch your tent on the bluffs overlooking the ocean, you'll need a heater.

“Interesting natural caves”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

I always liked visiting this place and as a kid the caves used to be scary and fun. There is a camping park there and a pool so it is a good place for families with kids.
