Our Guests Say...

My husband and I have camped for over twenty-five years on the east coast of Canada and the US, and The Cove Oceanfront Campground was one of the best campgrounds we've ever seen. The facilities are terrific, our site was large, private and had an ocean view, what more could you ask for? Thanks to all the staff who made our stay this past summer so pleasant. We will definitely try to get back to The Cove.
