“VERY UNWELCOMING CAMPGROUND”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Our experience in this campround has not been a good one. We live in this town, and work on Savary Island, just across from Lund. We frequent this campsite simply because it is the only campsite in Lund, and it is closer to commute from there to work in the summer, and get some camping in as well. We find that although the owners Ron and Ann, appear friendly and welcoming, that that is not really the case. Our experience has showed us that they really do not want to do any work at all, so if they could be closed all year long, I am sure they would. They want you to go check in to the office immediately, even if you know where your site is, and hurry up and pay before you even get parked. Like I said before, we frequent this campsite, so they know us, but yet insist that we take care of the legalities immmediately, with no time to get set up first. Then comes the evening when you are listening to the low strum of a guitar by the campfire, when she tells us "its quiet time" and insists we all be very quiet. The park is usually quite empty when she says these things, and often tells us that others complained about the noise,when in fact they didnt. She uses that line on a lot of the campers. They refused to cut down the tent catapillers that were dropping all over the picnic tables, chairs RV's etc. this year during the shellfish weekend in Lund. They should have been dealt with before the park opened for the season, but that would be work, now wouldnt it? We wanted to come into the park at 7:30 am one morning before work, but they dont want to get up before 9 am to open the gate, so we either had to come the night before, and pay for an extra night, or wait til later for them to open up for the day. Meanwhile its an unlocked gate that we could have opened and closed behind us, and checked in after work. They recenty told us that if we wanted to camp there with 3 other units, that we had to be quiet or go elsewhere. Again, need to reinterate, we have never been that noisy, they just dont want ANY sound after 10pm, but its okay if she plays her bagpipes every night, and sounds terrible! They have lost long time customers with us, our many friends and hopefully everyone else I can tell. They dont want you there anyways, they just want your money. Dont give them any, as they dont earn it anyway! There are many reasons why we dont like the owner Ann, but the biggest reason they have lost our business, is because when we told them we were not coming back, though we generate a lot of business for them, they really didnt mind. Wow, They must be making good money somewhere else, because that park is usually empty, so to turn down a lot of revenue, is foolish and insulting! Shelby Degaag/MD & S CONTRACTNG LTD.

We spent 1.5 weeks at this great RV park near Lund. Ann and Ron are great hosts who constantly look out for their customers. We moored our boat an easy walk from the camp. And there's restaurants and groceries near the park.

This campground is a real relaxing place specialy because of the friendlyness of the Owners. They give you a welcome feeling and even some wood to have a campfire the first day. The campground is ideal to relax because Pub, Restaurant, shop and a lovely boardwalk is just a 3 minutes walk. You can see a wonderfull sunset and eagles flying and boats comming and going.

Room Tip: Sun and shade sides they have to choose

Hosts at this campsite (RV & tent sites and a couple of cabins), Ann and Ron, are very friendly and the property is immaculate with all the facilities you need. The Discovery cabin is very comfortable and private. It is a lovely spot and a very short stroll down to the harbour.

I stayed at Sunlund last July, but only found this page now and find it important to catch up on posting a commend. Coming from Switzerland, I travelled through Canada on my own for over 5 weeks. I found a warm welcome at the SunLund Campsite, where I arrived pretty late. Wanting to sleep in the car I was even offered a tent (no cabins free), which I denied but thanks for the dear offer!!
The peace, the beautiful surroundings, the simplicity of life, breakfasts in Nancy's bakery made me want to stay forever! The day on Savary Island was a highlight on my trip.
Thanks Ann and Ron! I am definitely planning to come back sometime!!

I was looking to relax and unwind without being isolated. SunLund really fits the bill. It is easily the quietest campground I've ever stayed in but still only a couple of dozen metres along a groomed path to the harbour boardwalk in the heart of town. I stayed in the Camper's Cabin and appreciated how clean and well kept the camp washrooms, showers and laundry facilities are. This is only my fourth visit in nine years but the owners really seem to treat me like family. I had a great time and hope to be back again.

Room Tip: I had tented my first few visits but over the years my back has become much more insistant about tak...
