Venture into Prince Edward Island National Park to discover a striking natural landscape of wide beaches, sandy dunes, saltmarshes, and freshwater wetlands. The area was the inspiration for Lucy Maud Montgomery's "Anne of Green Gables" novels. Take relaxing walks along its numerous stretches of sand, or choose to trek one of the scenic hiking trails. Visit the Queen Anne Revival mansion, a National Historic site of Canada. Wandering the picturesque park--a designated Important Bird Area--you might see an array of bird species, as well as raccoons, red foxes, weasels, and beavers. See if you can spot the endangered piping plover skittering along the shore.

  • Beautiful national park in PEI, with great beaches and great views of the ocean. Nice sandy beaches with red cliffs above the water. Definitely worth the stop with the iconic red chairs.  more »
  • Stunning beach and rugged shoreline make for a beautiful walk anytime of the year. Make sure you stop by and see what the fuss is really about.  more »
  • Came across this park almost by chance as we tried to follow the coast. Hesitated when we realised it was a national park, with a toll collection booth at the entrance. Remembered that we had a pass s...  more »

  • Great hiking trails, wonderful views of the ocean blue. Soil unlike anywhere else I have visited, it is almost neon orange in some places. A beautiful National Park, very remote. The combination of the landscape & the ocean are unequivocally & lavishly splendiferous!! If you ever are in the area (good luck on that one!), it is an absolute must see. Anne of Green Gables was filmed here - and, if you're here with that special someone...you can traverse the official "Lover's Lane." What a majestic place, yes, indeed.
  • A beautifully kept park, on the edge of the ocean. Great beaches (though watch for jellyfish), and great summer programming. The Otentik cabins, in particular, are beautifully situated, each looking out into the surrounding woods. At night, as with any of the less developed spots on PEI, you might be treated to a spectacular expanse of stars.
  • PEI has some of the most beautiful untouched landscapes there are many wonderful parks to visit but this is a must at the top of the list. There are beautiful rolling sand dunes amd gorgeous red stone cliffs over looking the ocean front. Its clean and very well kept. The water at most of the PEI beaches is on the colder side even in August. So be prepared for that but the beaches are long and have a slow incline into the ocean so good for little ones. Beware the sand flies and other pests near the grassy sand dunes best to stay away from there.
  • Amazing...we didn't want to leave. Beautiful location. Well done entertainment. Bathrooms are spotless.
  • Great camping in our tent trailer. Facilities well maintained. Lots of hot water.
