Big parking area on the right side of the lighthouse and big grassy area on its left. Quite muddy so the access from the left can be tricky after a big rain. The view is amazing! There's a forestry operation in front of the site right now so it becomes loud early during the week days.

Dirt road to campsite, can be muddy if it has rained much. Arrived at night another van and bus there. Plenty of space. Beautiful sunrise. Too many mosquitoes to go outside.

Beautiful spot with lots of space to camp. A few people came in and out during the day even in the off season. Certain areas are really filled with garbage tho. Watch out for the small cliffs if you arrive in the night.

located across the bay from Charlottetown on the peninsula. tent, vans and trailers, sites in the trees, in the open on both sides of the light house. be aware you are beside a light house that's lights up every in the open.

Tres belle place! C’est très calme mais peut être assez venteux et beaucoup de moustiques en soirée! En plus beaucoup de réseau donc très pratique !

Nice place, lots of other campers here, hard to find a flat spot. Great photo ops, friendly campers. Flies and mosquitoes were atrocious. Quiet and the light from the lighthouse was eerily soothing

This a beautiful lighthouse, but be aware they don't cut grass here. There is another overlander here, rest of the place is empty.

Nice place to camp! We got there late and left pretty early, but nice scenery! There were at least 3 other RV-campers there, so we found a spot close to the lighthouse to pitch our tent, was a bit tight but worked fine.

There’s a fire pit down a little path. Lots of noisy crows in the morning and mosquitoes, was fun for a night.

stayed there for the night, pretty calm but other campers did notice some locals come in late at night blaring music. great views. there were a couple loud crows in the morning. mosquitoes come out when it's dark but disappeared when the sun came out. lots of places to camp at for tents and hammock campers.

Super calm spot at night, the lighthouse give a stunning atmosphere.

Beautiful spot. There was some trash as other reviews have mentioned. Several locals came to hang out, have fires and some stayed the night in tents or cars. There are several fire pits both inside the wooded area that can be accessed by trail and in the open grassy area. There seemed to be a lot of others that were just checking out the lighthouse and left. We spent two nights here and felt safe with no issues. There’s a National historic monument site a couple kilometers down the road which is passed on the way to the lighthouse. There are beautiful walking/biking trails there.

Nice spot,Lots of garbage,but still a great location

Easy to locate since the light house is only about 100 meters away. Some other travelers stopped by as I was setting up my tent. At dusk mosquitoes drove me into my tent. Nice setting, would stay there again.

Cet endroit fut un véritable coup de cœur. Il y a de beaux endroits pour dormir. La vue est poignante.

Il y a beaucoup de résidents du coin qui visitent pendant la journée, et parfois en soirée.

Le seul hic c’est qu’il y avait un peu de déchets. Si on en prends tous un peu on peut régler ça!

La description et les photos sont justes.
un bel endroit....malheureusement avec des traces d'humains malpropres...il y a des débris jetés près des ronds de feu....

Several visitors over the day, but very quiet at night. Really beautiful place with lots of space and different views. Unfortunately, some RVs set their "black water markers". Terrible behavior!
No facilities. Telus 5bars.

Absolutely loved this spot! Big wide open grass field, but also a few spots tucked into the trees. Wonderful views. Stormy and windy the night I was there, made it very eerie with the green light of the lighthouse but it was very cool! Mosquitoes were bad at night (as they seem to be everywhere in PEI this time of year) but being bug spray and it is very worth coming here! Half hour to Charlottetown.

No mosquito.
Good cellphone network.

Gorgeous views of the ocean, very dark at night and quiet. One other set of campers when I was here but lots of room for privacy. Please keep off the dunes as they are eroding every year!

This is a nice spot. lots of room.
I wonder if other IOverlanders have trouble finding places for garbage. perhaps that should be a category?

Someone pulled up at the last place we were at, put their garbage on the grass and then left. not nice!!!!

Stayed here last night. perfectly quiet, with the lights of Charlletown shining acrss the water

Report Check-In

Oh yes. Come here. What a view lots of room. Remote but not far

Report Check-In

Perfect place to camp, with space to park. You have the view over Charlottetown, a place to make a fire, and if you're lucky you might be visited by a curious small red fox.

Quiet place with a nice few. Okay for one night.
