Beautiful spot and highly recommend. 3 campers/rv's and lots of room. Mosquitos were horrible at sunset but well worth it for the view!

Motorcycle camping at it's best!! Took the spot at the far end away from the lighthouse beam. Such a beautiful spot! Sat by the Cape until mosquitoes found me. Peaceful night.

lots of space for a variety of vehicles/tents. strong on shore breeze tonight. eastern spot will require some ground clearance to get to.

Nice wildcamping spot. Best to check where you can drive on foot first as there are a lot of deep ruts hidden in the grass. There were 5 campers here last night, all without issue.

Nice spot but we finally stayed at the marina not far away. Nice spot and thé watchman comes by in the night to make sure everything is ok, told us there is absolutely no prob staying there. Nice spot by thé beach!

Great camping spot!

When we set up camp it was very mosquito-y but they (mostly) went away after. Very windy as you’re right next to the water & cliff (but that’s to be expected).

Great views!! Would definitely recommend, especially for sunset and sunrise!

Huge area, ground is pretty uneven but found a nice flat spot for tent. When we camped there were 2 other tents and 2 RVs (very spread out).

super endroit, une superbe vue ! un peu cahoteux mais assez facile d'accès

Lovely stay, very unlevel but a beautiful spot. Not good for motorhomes or something over 25 feet long. Wonderful spot!

Amazing views from this lighthouse!! However, the mosquitos were horrendous which put a damper on our outdoor lounging. There was also a lot of traffic coming into this lighthouse and people weren’t shy to crowd our rig/campsite. The ground is very uneven and there are a lot of ruts. If you want more privacy you can take the trail around the side of the cliff to a grassy area. The road has a few deep ruts but the camping area seems to be fairly level. The road coming into the lighthouse was in good shape.

Almost a 360 degre view on the golf - stunning ever with a lots of clouds.

Very nice place to pitch his tent! There is lot of place and it is clean. The sunset is wonderful!

Incredible place to stay. Parked at the edge of the cliff with ocean views and the lighthouse out our side window.. The highlight was seeing a bald eagle perched on the tip of the ledge in the morning. Quiet and peaceful and the sunset is beautiful. This is a magical place to be.

to add... a couple other car campers joined us and there are a ton of black flies in addition to the normal mosquitoes... but I would stay here again as it's so special to be able to park at places like this!

this spot is very beautiful and peaceful. looking forward to spending the night here.

Best camping spot I've stayed at. Long dirt road down to the lighthouse. But enough space for many larger rigs, we are 50ft long and had no issues. Stayed right by the cliff and the views were breathtaking!

I stayed here one night on 08/26/21. I parked close to the cliff. It was extremely windy as expected, and there was a lightning storm that evening. A great place although no washroom facilities are available. There is a long, narrow dirt road leading to the lighthouse in poor condition. My vehicle with low ground clearance and summer performance tires did not like the route but it was the most scenic overnight stay in my vehicle I have ever experienced.

Awesome spot, truly. A few cars and people at sunset and just after, then no one. Totally quiet. I was the only one overnighting, on a cliff overlooking the ocean, under a lighthouse. Doesn’t get much better than that. Very windy though!

Windy night but a quiet location with a beautiful view over the Northumberland Strait.

Nice view of the ocean with a natural sea bridge. Spent a quiet but windy night. Great find.

Wow, incredible spot on a calm summers night! Very quiet and secluded. Just be prepared for the mosquitos!

Open panoramic place from SE to NW for several cars. Several short time visitors but quiet. No facilities. Telus 4bars.

great place right on the water. windy so be prepared for a loud night if in a tent. visitors until near dark. 2 others there and plenty of space between. thanks for those that posted this spot. totally worth it.

Nice spot for all RV. At the left when you look the ocean you have 3 spots for smaller RV and it rough for the last 100 meters and near the lighthouse 5 spots for bigger RV with smooth road! Nice sunset with some tourists.They take picture and live after! Calm place for rest of the night!
Endroit parfait pour toutes grosseurs de motorisé! Pour les plus petits à gauche du phare quand nous regardons la mer un spot pour 3 RV avec une route difficile sur les derniers 100 mètre. Sinon autour du phare +/- 5 endroits avec une vue incroyable! Quelques touristes sont venus prendre des photos du coucher de soleil. Après plus personne pour le reste de la nuit.

Absolutely beautiful. many spots.
Can't beat this view.

Small dirt road leading to the light house. A little bumpy at times. Beautiful spot just off the coast. We had a stormy night, but the view was worth it.

Report Check-In

Beautiful right at the lighthouse overlooking the water. Very peaceful with one other camper but plenty of space to have privacy. There’s a road beyond the lighthouse which we stayed at the end of. Wouldn’t recommend big rigs coming to the end of the road as the turn around is tight. Lovely sweeping views! Plenty of mossies around. Road in has potholes but fine to get in with most vehicles.

Very nice place, lots of space to park. The road is a little bumpy. At the moment, the spot on the left is hard to reach. There's sighs of a car that got stuck.
I wouldn't recommend tents here, unless you know it's not gonna be windy.

Beautiful sunset views, some of the locals came by to watch it. Quiet place. There are lots mosquitoes so we stayed in the van as much as possible, not as bad in the morning. Definitely a place to check out.

Stayed here 1 night with my 18' trailer. Easy to get to with a good gravel road. Beautiful view. A few locals stopped by, very friendly

Belle place, magnifique coucher de soleil! Mais Watch out pour les moustiques. À la nuit tombée une nuée de milliers de suceurs de sang se sont rassemblés autour du van. Les expéditions pipi allaient nous paraitre difficiles. C’est sans compter sur la fourberie de ces petites bêtes qui ont trouvé une craque dans le van. Après en avoir éclaté une dizaine, on a remarqué qu’ils étaient plus d’une centaine à l’intérieur. Nous avons donc fuit le spot toutes fenêtres ouvertes pour en enlever le plus possible.
Spot magnifique, fermé toutes ouvertures la nuit tombée, au moins en juillet!

Super spot. Coucher de soleil magnifique et si vous continuez le chemin encore un peu sur la gauche il y a un autre spot d'où vous pouvez crapahuter jusqu'à la plage. Génial!

Small dirt road to the lighthouse. Places direct on the nice coast. View to New Brunswick. (We had a stormy night...)
