Something not right?

Description

A fantastic gravel lot at the end of the bay. Picnic tables, trash bin and, best of all, a raised fire pit that the locals provide firewood for. Two different folks even checked to make sure there was enough wood for me!

Good night but no more fresh scallops to buy. Good level parking.

On s’est acheté pour 15$ de pétoncles frais du jour, ce sera un délice.

Endroit très tranquil et locaux très sympa. Avons demandé l’autorisation et aucun problème. Nous étions 3 campeurs. Vente de homard frais juste en face du stationnement. La dame qui a un livre d’invités est venu nous voir. Elle tient ce registre depuis 2004!

petite halte routière charmante, avec des locaux sympathique. ceci appartient a la communauté et nous avons même signé un livre de visite. parfait pour une auto avec une roulotte totalisant 38'. A savoir. il y a un chien nommé Chance qui va probablement venir vous voir. il est sympathique. on nous a parcontre avertis de ne pas laisser les enfants sans surveillance et de ne pas lui enlever dequoi de la geule. sinon, il est venu voir mon chien et mes enfants sans aucun incident. il était plutôt indépendant. aussi, il laisse du bois pour le foyer!

This is a nice location with garbage bin and picnic tables. Across the street you can buy frozen fish like halibut, cod tongues etc.

There are few friendly unleashed dogs that will come by and pee on your vehicle. My Pomeranian didn't like that.

There were three motor homes the night we were there.

Belle endroit au bord d’une petite baie assez grand pour 3 à 4 gros Vr et quelques petites vanettes. La dame en face garage blanc vend du délicieux homard, poissons et pétoncles, fourni le gros chaudron, et le bois. Les voisins sont très agréable et serviable. Christine viendra vous faire signer son livre de visite. Superbe endroit nous y sommes allés 2 fois. A voir!

As described. Nice seafood market across and down. Trust your google map to get here.

Yep. Fantastic spot. Quiet bay. Level ground. Picnic tables and a fire pit (with wood). Had a lovely visit with Sandra and Don from the lobster pool across the road. And…bonus…bought a couple fresh lobsters as well.

Just as everyone says. People are super friendly. There was a supply of firewood for the Grill. Four picnic tables and nice gravel pull out. No bathrooms.

As described by others… gravel lot by the water, with a few colourful picnic tables, raised fire pit with supply of wood (no kindling, so bring your own or bring a hatchet), and a garbage can. No water or other services. Very quiet. Enough street lights to keep it from getting too dark/creepy, but not enough to spoil the view of the night sky.

Perfect spot to spend the night. No wood there (few pieces in the pit) but we brought our own. Not windy at all. It's right next to the road but at night there's no traffic, we had a quiet night with only the sound of the waves.

Fabulous little place maintained by a couple of locals. Woman arrived with a guest book that she keeps just to see were people are from.

As described. Blissfully quiet. Super clean. Camp tables right next door with free firewood supplied by locals. Amazing. Beautiful view of bay leading out to ocean. Gravel lot. 1-2 bars ATT 3G service. Like it here.
