Our largest campground features over 200 sites and an exclusive supervised beach. Exceptional recreational activities abound, including the spectacular 8 km Homestead Trail, suitable for hiking and cycling. The campground offers showers, flush toilets, a laundromat, kitchen shelters, some sites with accessible features, and a playground and Parks Canada store. Campfires are permitted on selected sites.
Following post-tropical storm Dorian: During post-tropical storm Dorian in September 2019, more than 80 percent of the trees in the Cavendish Campground area were destroyed or damaged, and 2 to 4 meters of coastline eroded. Cavendish Campground remained closed for the 2020 operational season due to damage caused by this storm. Many significant repair and clean-up activities to address the damage caused by the storm that were planned for spring 2020 were delayed due to COVID-19.
As a result, the rehabilitation of affected areas is ongoing and will continue through calendar years 2020 and 2021. Cavendish Campground is expected to be open for camping in summer 2021.
