Some Parks Canada places have begun a safe, gradual reopening of some outdoor areas and services, including camping. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and be well-prepared for their visit. Details here.

Skmaqn—Port-la-Joye—Fort Amherst National Historic Site is located on Route 19 in Rocky Point, 40 km west of Charlottetown and 55 km east of Borden-Carleton. The site is open year-round for self-guided tours and washroom facilities are open from mid-June to mid-October.

Plan to spend a few hours exploring the site, interpretive panels and walking trails offering stunning views of Charlottetown Harbour. Special events include Acadian National Feast Day each August.
