The good: Between 2 beaches and near co-op. The outhouses are actually very clean despite what people have been saying and the campground provides drinking water. Our site was fortunately private enough but a lot that I saw other people in were absolutely awful, with zero privacy, basically in an open field. The Bad: The lady when we checked in...

Expensive for what you get, Crabby staff, lousy shower and bathroom facilities, sites have no level ground and are muddy, neighbors drink and carry on like its their back yard. Can't think of any reason to return.

It costs twice as much as provincial camp grounds, the staff are crabby, showers are awful and the plots are super close together. Somebody I met there received a $300 fine because a noise complaint was filed against her, because of her 2 small children being loud JUST after quiet time. They will suck your wallets dry. It's a shame...

Well, another fabulous year at Tribune Bay. Everyone's reviews are right. I wish the management/owners would redo the showers and washhouse and update the toilets. The overall campsite needs work. Yes, it's close camping, and that layer of Hornby dirt stays on everything until you get home. BUT ... I love it! The co op, the shops, going to The...

This is not on the beach. There is a private property between the campground and the water. It was a 10 minute walk from our campsite to the water. We rented a double site for our extended family of 7. There wasn't a spot to pitch a tent that was level. The picnic table was on a slant. The ground...

We were in the 'family' section of the camp. People are close together with not much privacy. Our neighbors with company vehicles, prolix painting, decided to drink and party until 2:30am in the morning on night one. Their dog was loose and was roaming around and ate our dog's food. We complained, but the campground still let them stay another...

Arrived to a campsite littered with beer bottles and cans, my site, like most others in this camp appeared to be one campsite merged into two. Tents where pitched feet away from my picknick table and tent. There was at least 8 tents within 10 meters of my campsite. People carry on with all kinds loud inebriate behavior all through...

This campsite has a great location near the co-op and Tribune Bay Park and Beach. There are too many sites at this campground so there is a feeling of overcrowdedness when the place is full, which is most summer weekends. During our stay from July 12 to 19, we noticed that the so-called 10pm quiet time is not adhered to...
