Murphys Cove RyanDate of Stay Friday July 11th: Summed up by us both agreeing that Murphy’s Cove was probably one of THE best campsites we have ever stayed on.  Why so special?  The people.  The owners, Brian and Marilyn Murphy, are second generation and the third generation is already starting to get involved.  This is not just a campsite, it is an experience.

We only stayed one night but had we had more time we would have stayed much longer.  They offered a boat trip out into the ocean where we saw Osprey and Seals.  On our return there was a huge campfire with other campers there and the owners brought out fresh local mussels and cooked them for everyone (no charge).  We hadn’t managed to visit a liquor store so he gladly gave me three beers and would not take anything for them.  Finally, the son played and sang the guitar really well taking requests with everyone joining in.

Open five months of the year they are up at six providing free coffee for the campers and go to bed at midnight making sure everyone was entertained and happy.  Just fantastic.  A map and a few pictures below but they can’t truly capture the moment which was one of the best we have experienced.
