“Always stay at Fiddlehead Resort Camp”
Reviewed August 4, 2009

I am a regular camper in the Sauble Beach area and I have stayed at many of the camps in the area. Fiddlehead Resort Camp is a safe, clean and fair camp, the sites are for the most part large and well appointed. On the long weekends these camps tend to fill up and the resort does provide extra security to ensure a safe enjoyable stay. Other resorts in the area either have too many rules (lights out and no noise past 10pm) or no rules and unsafe, Fiddlehead Resort Camp has a balanced approach if you are having fun and keep the noise to your site, they don't shut you down.

I was at the camp on the August long weekend that the other reviewer mentioned and it wasn't as bad as she made out. Yes the washrooms were closed for part of the weekend, there are out-houses in an emergency, but the closure was due to abuse of the washrooms. The men's washroom had a shower broken off and the water ran for hours draining the tanks. There was also greasy dishes dishes washed in the washroom sinks which ended up clogging the drains so badly that they had to be cut-out and replaced. If this were a provincial park they would have just hung an out of order sign on the door and closed it for the weekend. But the camp management had them back up and running in short order.

The only other thing I would say about the other review of the camp, is they say they were forced to pick up garbage off of their site by hand, all I can say is if you dirty the site yeah you should pick up your crap...leave the site the way you found it princess...

I have been traveling to Fiddlehead resort for the past 10 years with my family of four and would highly recommend this camp to all. We have no complaints with the bathroom facilities,cleanliness of the camp, the play ground is perfect for children of all ages, the location is just a quick walk to the beach, the sites are all spacious and clean... like all campgrounds some rules do apply, Fiddlehead's rules are far from being ridiculous, try staying at some provincial parks!
If you are looking for somewhere to stay and completely enjoy your weekend or week long holiday I recommend Fiddlehead !!!

As mentioned in a previous review, I stayed at the resort that August long weekend. This was something that was caused from other visitors and the staff did the best to control the situation, a situation that was not ask for ! Under the circumstances it was resolved the best possible way they could.

If you are looking for spa like facilities then don't go camping.....

I think the best way to write a review is to experience the place yourself, the only thing we can do is advise and my advice is stay here and enjoy !

We recently stayed at Fiddleheads this August long weekend and have been annual regulars with large groups (15+) for about 4 years.
I can advise that we will NEVER stay at this park again and will avidly urge everyone to stay away from this park.

This past long weekend we paid to stay at a camping resort with working showers, running water and a safe environment. The showers were only available (as in functioning) 4 hours each day and there was no running water for the most part of the weekend. We were asked to "keep an eye out" our first night because there were people sneaking into the campground and stealing alcohol. I would think that the fee that we paid to stay at the campground would cover security seeing as every time we left the park we had to present our wrist bands to get back in. Nevertheless our group did not complain.

After a weekend with sparse water, unavailable washrooms and showers that were clean sometimes (when they were actually functioning the cleanliness was hit or miss) we packed up our site and cleaned it up. Upon trying to get our deposit back the staff had the audacity to make members of our group go back to pick up a few cigarette buts and bottle caps that were left behind. The staff member also asked them to pick up garbage that wasn't even ours!!! While there were few butts and bottle caps you would think that this establishment would take care of miscellaneous cleaning. As a group we paid $1,750.00 to stay at this establishment and they had the gaul to make people pick up butts and bottle caps off the floor with their bare hands while one of your staff members uses a rake and complains to the guests about what a "horrible weekend" she had!!!! This is ridiculous! I can guarantee you that we will never step foot in that park again and urge anyone in the area to stay elsewhere!
