Casino del Sol

Stayed two nights at this interesting place. Just to see.
Generator country.
Street lights are strong, so lots of light in your RV if your curtains aren't pitch black. Worse than a walmart.
Enjoy.

New Mexico Welcome Center

Noisy.
I don't get why trucks come here to sleep. They're even too long for the space.
I did not see the wifi code before, so can't confirm.
Next time, I'll try Veterans' park.

Near Caraquet

Update for 2018 : the place is still there. 😉 with the mosquitoes...
We got there late, so we stayed in the opened space on the left.
Nothing else than parking by the water. Pick up after yourself.

Hay Island

Stopped just for a visit and saw the big potential for free overnight. Really scenic with picnic spots that look like campsites. Would have stayed here if timing was good.

Dune de Bouctouche

We stayed one night because of the comments, but it's obvious they don't want anyone to park overnight there, so plan your trip differently if uou read this.
One could argue that it's ok to sleep in the first parking lot and not in the three others until they put the sign up right at the entrance.

Victoria by the Sea

Ok for one night. Maintained grass area along the water. I find it quite exposed to houses and road behind.
The rest area was closed. 😟
Beautiful view. Happened to arrive at sunset and low tide : many herons and other stuff crawling.

Tracadia Bay

Ok spot. Big gravel parking lot with clean porta potties and garbage bins.
Not attractive at first sight but colors are nice when sun is shining at the right angle.
Beach is a 5min walk. View on sand dunes across the bay.
Ideal for big RVs and Overlanders in need of official spots.

Free hot showers

Same thing throughout the park. Free showers at beach complex. No entry fee to the park before mid June and after labor day weey.

Free showers in National Park

Stanhope Beach toilet building.
You can find same thing at Brackley Beach.

In National Park, so you need entry pass from mid June to labor day. Free entry before and after.

Cable Head

Wow, super spot.
Would have stayed here longer if my deadline wasn't so close.
One square of grass for many RVs and a few spots along the path leading to the point. The point is accessible with high clearance only.

Beautiful sunset. No amenities. Two other RVs present. Some locals walking for sunset.

Cape Bear cliff - Murray Head

Good first stop after the ferry. Huge opening at the end of the road.
Thank you for sharing. Some waterfront spots. No amenities.
We saw seals and gannets.
There were more mosquitoes than we were expecting for September.

Free showers - Georgetown PEI

Veterans Landing Park along Confederation Trail.
Free hot shower in the washroom.
Please don't abuse and keep it clean.

Irving

Propane refill station in Antigonish. Easy.

Broad Cove Marsh Rd

Grassy area between ocean cliff and gravel road. Ok spot for a night, only 3km from the main road.
Gravel road in good condition (there might be two access : choose the northern one). Not wild at all with houses around and a glamping site nearby.
Larger RVs can get here easily. Just note that it's a single lane loop, so the in and out's need to be collectively managed when 3 or more vehicles are present.
Locals drive by and wave.

Antigonish Shell

Free dump and rinsing water. Affordable gas (free coffee with $25 purchase).

This place could become a major RV stop if they would install a clean water tap away from the dump and propane filling facilities.

Pleasant Bay Harbour

Good, easy and convenient spot. Perfect for sleeping autonomously while visiting the park.

New Haven Comfort Station

Laundry, showers and public restrooms (with hot water) by the fire station.
Washing $3
Drying $1/20min
Showers $2/15min

*Bring your own loonies and even more to help out other visitors. ;)

Indian Beach - Regional Park

Convenient for before or after the ferry.
Constant engine noise from ferry bosts.
Nice playground.
Porta potties.

Crabbes

Nice place with cliff and sunset. Beautiful grassy surroundings.

It's a turning point for vehicles coming in and out, so we were worried about blocking the way, which we didn't.
Not recommended for big RVs.
No services.

Cape Blow Me Down Trail - South Shore Outer Bay

Awesome spot and view. Better than others in the area. Would have stayed here first, but visited in the morning. Picnic tables and garbage cans.

BlowMeDownProvPark 3 - South Shore Outer Bay

This road is not a road anymore (not even 4x4) and the parking lot nearby says ´no ovenight camping' so we stayed at the boardwalk parking lot at the bottom of the hill.

Day Park - No Camping

The sign says DayPark, No overnight Parking written so big.

Hunts Cove Park - Abandoned Park at the sea

Pictures uploaded...........................

Hunts Cove Park - Abandoned Park at the sea

Beautiful spot for one group by the ocean surrounded with trees.
Small rigs only : Not much space to turn around at the end.

Warning : Growing trees make it a narrow road good for ATVs because it would even damage your car I think. I went with my van and the trees scratched both sides, so if you want to go, bring your chainsaw and clear it all.

Twillingate

This place is in wrong location - it is located at 49.64540, -54.76199

Twillingate

Free dump station in Twilingate by the arena and the playground. With drinking water.

There's a sign on the main road telling you where to turn (between Independant and the main stop sign). This is a disappointment in the iOverlander community : since 2016, no one wanted to share or update the information ? Come on guys ! It's a sharing community, do your part, please.

Sleepy Cove RV & Tenting park

As it was written on earlier comments, it's THE free place to be in the area. It was either a campground before or it will be soon.
Officially divided into 5 or 6 spots with picnic tables and fire pits, but lots of space to share around.
No garbage bins.
Pit toilet is creepy but functional.
Certainly tent friendly.

Because there's a dump station and fresh water in town, I give it a five star.

Cape Island

Map.Me could not get me there. Know that you need to go to Cape Freels and take gravel road to the right.
Lots of spots each side of the sandy road. Watch for soft sand. We played it safe and stayed at the trail head.

Sunnyside rv dump station

Free dumpstation. Could be hard to use because there's not much room around it. No water

Charlottetown

Did not sleep there because of timing but wanted to see and update the "last visited". Spot approved. ;)
Went around town and actually saw 3 or 4 nice welcoming spots.
