“The staff is wonderful! We had tenters camping in front of us in the pouring rain and the staff brought down a BBQ for them to use because their own stove was not working. You don’t see hospitality like that very often!”

“Great family campground. Our family has been camping here for about 28 years. Our girls grew up there and now the grandchildren love to come. The manager Cameron is beyond helpful and the staff are super. What more could you ask for? Can’t wait for the next season. P.S. where else could you meet such great people? One big family!”

“Where in today’s society we barely let our kids play outside our own yards for safety concerns. I am a parent and have 2 boys who love Harbour Light Campground and I, as their parent, love the safe community feeling it has. It’s like being a kid in the 90’s again where you could walk down the street by yourself as a child with no fear. My boys love the freedom of going to the playground or biking with friends and parents not tagging along. Overall the best family campground in Pictou County.”
