Prince Edward Island National Park
At Prince Edward Island National Park you will be enchanted by the miles of unspoiled beach, the beautiful landscapes and the playful shorebirds flitting along the water’s edge. Enjoy an early morning stroll down one of the many picturesque beaches.
A 30 minute drive from Charlottetown and a 4-hour drive from Halifax.
Wake to the sound of waves washing against the shore just beyond your tent. Zip open the door to reveal the sun rising over the spectacular red cliffs of Cavendish. The day is yours; take a moment and savour the light scent of the sea, the sound and the colour that surrounds you.

- Red Fox
- Great Blue Heron
- Snowshoe Hare
- Bald Eagle
- Red Squirrel
No camping trip to Prince Edward Island National Park is complete without a scrumptious seafood feast! Be sure to bring along a big pot for steaming lobster, and don’t forget a fork and nutcracker for digging out those last few delicious morsels.
