Prince Edward Island Tent Camping

Download Recommended Tent Camping Locations - PEI

At the town of Pictou, Nova Scotia, hop aboard a ferry to a unique land not often visited by RVs but home to some great Prince Edward Island tent camping. When you disembark on the southern shore you’ll be surrounded by the fantastic Northumberland Provincial Park and Wood Islands Provincial Park. Both offer delightful seaside vistas and opportunities to explore the natural features of the island. TCH-1 begins there and heads northwest into the interior of the island. Northumberland Provincial Park has limited Prince Edward Island tent camping sites and is not open year-round so remember to call ahead.

A fine next stop is a visit to the Orwell Corner Historic Village. This re-created 1895 village brings to light the unique life and times of the Scots and Irish that founded the region in the 19th-century. Nearby you can explore the great outdoors at the Prince Edward Island National Park. Within the park, the town of Cavendish is the home of one of Canada’s best-known fictional characters, the namesake to Anne of Green Gables. Today, the Green Gables House draws thousands of visitors each year who explore the country house of the novel’s author, L.M. Montgomery. One of the great Prince Edward Island tent campgrounds here to check out is the Cavendish KOA.

Heading northwest on TCH-1 you’ll find yourself in the PEI capital city of Charlottetown, the “Birthplace of the Confederation.” Like the many other charming maritime cities, Charlottetown welcomes pedestrians to take in the town’s pleasant architecture, historical finds, restaurant and shopping. There are also a few Prince Edward Island tent campgrounds in the area to check out. A favorite pastime of visitors is spending a day at the Charlottetown Driving Park, a charming facility devoted to harness racing during the summer months. For a unique dining experience, try out the Culinary Institute of Canada, where students prepare meals under the guidance of world-class chefs. To ponder a more down-home menu, try out the venerable Pilot House, which dishes up traditional pub fare in a cozy atmosphere.
