Cape Breton Highlands National Park


oTENTik camping


Sleep in an oTENTik: part tent, part cabin.

Imagine opening up your front door to the wonders of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. You’ll enjoy all the excitement of camping outdoors, but this time with a soft bed and a cozy roof over your head.

We’ve got you covered with oTENTiks in two beautiful, forested campgrounds: Chéticamp & Broad Cove. Step inside your roomy home and enjoy the beautiful, raised, level flooring. Six foam mattresses are arranged in bunks for cushy comfort. Just lay out your own sleeping bag or bedding. Bring some dishes and tasty BBQ food to cook on your campsite’s open-air grill, or grab yummy takeout from the nearby communities, and have dinner at your site.

Fall asleep to the sound of river waters lapping the shores at Chéticamp. Walk to the sandy beach at the foot of Broad Cove. And the spectacular hiking trails that drew you here are just minutes away on foot or by car. Cost: $100/night.
