Linwood Campground

refelection Date of Stay July 12th 2014:  Being a Saturday night this would be the one evening where finding a spot to stay might be hard.  We pulled in at a site in Antigonish and promptly pulled out again it was so crowded.  It would have been very unpleasant.  So, we drove on and happened upon Linwood Campground just short of Cape Breton Island.

The site is perhaps not as pretty as their website picture (left) would indicate but it was a little cheaper (C$30) and had reasonable WiFi.  It is clearly in competition with another site just a couple of kilometres further down the road which helps keep the prices down.

We had a three way pitch and it was relatively flat.  Very little to say about the site as it had no great distinguishing features but it was a welcome stop over after a long day.

Earlier in the day we stopped off at Sherbrooke Village.  This is a heritage site where the town has been preserved as it was over two hundred years ago.  Certainly worth a visit.  Click on the markers in the map below for the location details for the Campground and Sherbrooke.
