Cape Breton Highlands National Park

902-224-2306



Location: Cape Breton Highlands National Park, at the base of North Mountain, 10 km from Cape North.

Big Intervale Campground is a small campground located on the bank of the Aspy River. With only 10 tent sites, it’s a good spot to pull over and camp on your way around the Cabot Trail, especially if it’s late in the day and you don’t want to travel over the mountains after dark. No potable water on site.  

Campground Services:

  • Pit privies
  • Kitchen shelter with wood stove

Pay by self-registration or at a Park Visitor Centre. Reservations not accepted. 

There are several walking/hiking trails nearby:  

  • Aspy Trail starts at Beulach Ban Falls and follows the valley up to a look-off
  • Lone Shieling Trail, to see a replica of a Scottish crofters hut
  • Bennie’s Lake, to stroll through boreal forest where moose like to snack at the lake’s edge
