  • Check-in was really nice. But the second night someone was staying I our spot and they didn't care at all... It took one hour until we got a new spot and our towels were stolen... and the security didn't do anything... the next morning we were told that there was nothing they could do since the other people had left already... not very helpful!
  • We were given a site "overlooking the city", which basically means you're camping next to the dull roar of the highway & the urban beauty of a rail yard -- definitely less serene than our last 7 nights in Nova Scotia. That being said, the lady on the front desk was polite & friendly, the washrooms were well kept, the showers were free & warm & it cost $40 for the night. If you want a beautiful, quiet campsite then no guarantees with this place - but if you just need somewhere to stop for a night or two then this will probably suffice.
  • Well equipped and hospitable. This expansive RV park and campground offers all one needs as a refuge from the stresses of on-the-road travel. Big Rig access, pull-through sites and all the services you could ask for, this park is perfectly located at the top of the hill overlooking Saint John and close to, well, everything. The staff are friendly accommodating and professional. We will definitely stay here again if we pass through the area.
  • Our site was great. Bathrooms need serious help though. For those of us not in a big RV using the showers was not pleasant. Way to small and not very clean.
  • It's a decent place if everything is going well. If not, be prepared to have worst experience ever. They allowed someone else to sleep at our campsite on the second night we were there and then refused to investigate or move the people there. Next morning all our stuff from the previous campsite was gone alongwith the occupiers. So not only did the security guard refuse to disturb the people on the night itself but the guy at the entrance, John, was aggressively defensive about not helping us track down our stuff the next day.
