Tight quarters with thousands of other campers, but a great way to experience the oldest agricultural fair in New England. Even though we live in the next town to Fryeburg, we stay in our motorhome all week at the Fair. It's a tradition we love. We see many regulars and always meet new campers. Because of the crowds and small camping lots, it's best to come early and stay late. The staff is helpful but usually stressed by the end of the week. Hint... Use the "honey wagon" service... for $10. they will empty your tanks with a day's notice (sign up at the camping office.) Then, you can pull out the next day and avoid a long line at the dumping station. See you at "The Fayah."
The only reason we would not rate Cabot Park a 10 is because we are reluctant to share one of our favorite places. For any camper wishing to experience PEI, there is no better destination. The park is wonderful. Pet friendly, kid friendly, large-rig friendly, retiree friendly you cannot go wrong at this provincial park. Whether you seek a small motorhome-village mix of regulars and travelers or a remote tent site on a bluff overlooking beautiful Malpeque Bay, you will find the right site at Cabot Park. Most points of interest on PEI are within a 45 minute drive of the park. Did I mention the beach? Or the old school house converted to ice cream scoop shop? Or the arts and crafts building for the kids? Or the concerts at the gazebo? Or the fresh sea food available at the dock next door? Ssshh... I don't want to let the secret out of the bag.
Very convenient and comfortable spot for travellers from the Maritimes to New England and beyond. We always stay at Oak Bay while returning home to western Maine from PEI each summer. Plan to arrive at Oak Bay late afternoon or early evening, enjoy a comfortable evening, and leave by 7:00 am for a quick and easy crossing of the border (a 10 minute drive.) Not only will you miss the huge line and long delay that seems inevitable these days while crossing from mid-morning and later; once you are in Maine, you can promptly set your watch back to 6:15 am, since it's now eastern time! Oak Bay campground is comfortable with large drive-through sites (water and electric) near a basic play ground and (hopefully to continue) a great snack bar with grill. They are pet friendly, and we have always enjoyed the company - often travellers like us, but a fair number of humorous and friendly seasonal residents.
