We spent three nights at Tribune Bay Campsite at the end of July. As far as other reviews go about it being dirty or smelly...this is camping, it's not the Ritz. There are outhouses (not flush toilets) that were kept very clean and I never found them to be smelly. The showers do cost a lot and they are outdated, but again, this is camping. I agree that for what you get, the price is high. It was $35/night plus I reserved our spot so that was another $10. Thankfully we brought our own firewood because otherwise it's $7.50 per bundle. I can't really complain about the price because it is the same anywhere on Hornby. I found the campsite really busy and full of kids (we were there just as a couple) but we spent a lot of time out on the gorgeous beach and taking advantage of the excellent trails up Geoffrey Mountain. The location above all was fantastic. Literally a 2 minute walk to Tribune bay and a 2 minute walk to the CO-OP for any food etc. It is unfortunate that Hornby is so expensive to visit but it sure doesn't seem to keep people away as it was really busy while we were there. I think we'll come back when we have kids, but not for a couples getaway.
