Something not right?

Description

A beautiful spot under the Digdeguash river abandoned bridge. Half of the bridge still stands on ground and just pillars remain across the river.
The spot is close to the highway but still very secluded, couldn't even hear it in the SUV. Sits on a very calm and quiet cove. Ideal for vanlife and mid-size RV. There are maybe a couple tent spots but we didn't try them.
At the end of Spur No 2 road is the bridge. The gravel road to the right will take you to spot.

Very quiet and nice place to stay for the night. We were alone. The highway is close but the sound was really ok.

Quiet spot right off the highway! Some folks came to watch the sunset but was unbothered at night.

Awesome spot. Quiet and even though the highway is nearby being at a lower spot you barely hear the vehicles. Had one local come by and friendly greeted.

Place is as described before, stunning at this time of year, too! A bit of garbage was lying under the bridge, glass bottles... Apart from that, we had a quiet night. Someone from Park Canada drove by in the morning to check the area, but didn't say anything to us.

Nice clean little spot near the highway. The locals mow the grass and care about this place please be respectful and clean up after your self.
we would stay here again.

Just as described from others.
Hopefully, no locals take issue with me here.

Large space to stay - very private. Couple of vehicles came down the hill to check us - didn’t stop. Other than that quiet night.

Definitely one of the coolest places we’ve stayed! Gives abandoned city vibes but with a great view of the water. Some road noise in the morning, but otherwise feels completely secluded.

Little noise from highway but very acceptable.

24' RV no problem down or back up. Absolutely stunning place and watching the tidal range is amazing. However and it's a big however...we had visitors come and put the frighteners on. Came down and parked right beside us (no need it's a big enough area) rooted their horn repeatedly. turned their truck around to shine the lights on our windows. Yelling they were going to rob us. We stayed quiet and inside and didnt respond at all and after about an hour they drove to the top of the track and blocked us in for ages. They finally got bored and left and we stuck it out. Really stressful and frightening and such a shame because this truly is a magical spot.

Great stop for a night. Highway is quiet at night. Ospreys nesting at the top of the hydro poles. Great view! Thanks.

Mise à jour : Quelqu’un est venu nous aviser que nous ne pouvions pas stationner pour la nuit à cet endroit. Le terrain appartient à Irving et des pancartes, qui ont été enlevées par des utilisateurs itinérants, avaient été apposées à cet effet. Respectons le local ✌️

Très belle place pour passer la nuit. Nous sommes en camper van et le bruit de l’autoroute n’est pas dérangeant. C’est bien de préciser que c’est la sortie 45 sur la 1, à droite sur la 170 et à droite sur Barker road jusqu’au bout et ensuite la trail jusqu’au pont démoli. Il y a même un nid d’aigle avec des p’tits bébés sur le poteau électrique! Gare aux p’tits chiens 🐶

Tres tranquille, on entends pas beaucoup la route. On entend surtout plusieurs sortent d’oiseux. Nous étions seuls. Vue magnifique. Énormément de moustiques.

A quiet spot by the river.
You can hear a few cars by night.

Nice quiet spot on the bay. We were able to make it down in a 2WD 21ft Promaster van but anything wider or longer might have a challenge getting down the narrow gravel section that takes you from the road, down a slight hill to the level area at the bottom by the bridge and water. Definitely room to turn around down there, a few people came and went in the evening but most seemed friendly and just wanted to watch the sunset or hangout for a few minutes and then left. Minimal road noise. No visible garbage when we stayed so hopefully people continue to respect the area so locals don’t put up a no parking sign. Love it or loose it!

Beautiful and quiet spot on a Saturday night. Some noise from the highway but ok. A lot of trash around though...
