Pictou Island is located off the shore of Pictou. It is a great day trip getaway especially if you have bicycles! There is a ferry that will take you to Pictou Island located right next to the PEI Ferry Terminal that you can book reservations on. Approx. $5 CAD for a round-trip ticket. Their website is linked here: Pictou Island Ferry

Once there, you can travel to the east side to see an old pioneers graveyard, Church and at the far end a park where you can swim. If you travel to the end of the west side, you can see where the old lighthouse used to be, as well as a lovely view of the ocean. As there is no cabs or the like, we do recommend bringing a bike, or you will have a long walk ahead of you!

For more information and to see pictures of the island, please visit the Pictou Island Facebook linked here: Pictou Island Facebook

“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!”

  “We have been coming here for 15 years and have always had a good time! Staff goes above and beyond to help in any way that they can!”

“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.”

“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!”
