Beautiful!

Lovely campground on the ocean. We went while the campground was closed but the park was still stunning in the snow. Look forward to going back in the summer!

This park has a great swimmimg area, nice ocean beach and some forest walks. The campsites are a good size but no campfires allowed on the sites. There is a community fire area though. Great place to come for a day picnic. Small playground area for kids. No boat launch but an easy walk from the road to the beach... More

This park is a gem. There is something for everyone from beautiful grassy areas to sandy beaches and warm water! It is a beautiful place for a family day out or a romantic picnic!

It happened tobe near low tide when we pulled into the park to kill a little time on a winters afternoon. Low tide means there is a wide swath of sand and gravel on which you may walk plus boat and plane activity on the inlet to observe.

Sandy beach area, washrooms, huge picnic area and wonderful campsites. Not too far from town and easy to find. Porpoise Bay Provincial Park has all you could want for a fun getaway.

We live across the water and enjoy this park with our dog regularly. Excellent location...beautiful sandy beach...wide grassy play and picnic area...excellent campsites... spawning sreams... a few short trails... great group camping/picnic/event facilities. Both prper bathrooms and out houses are available. The only issue is there no Shower facilities in this park.

Did not have a reservation. Some car camping on the way home from a long road trip. Stayed for 2 nights. Showers were warm and drinking water available. Campground very clean. Filled up over the weekend. Only community fire pits. Camp sites were in the forest a short walk from the beach. Public beach benches. Beautiful sunset. Lots of people... More
