Very serene and quiet place to visit over the beautiful oceans. Great picnic spot for families. There are better swimming area elsewhere though (ex. Point Michaud Beach)

Just stopped while driving up Cape Breton and enjoyed the quiet moment at this PP. We didn't go in past the entrance gate to the campground, so I dont have a lot to offer. But it is in a very beautiful and quiet location.
