Want to pitch a tent? Hook up your RV? Hole up in a secluded cabin or yurt? How about experiencing a Parks Canada oTENTik—a cross between an A-frame cabin and a prospector tent mounted on a raised wooden floor. With over 40 privately-owned and government-run campgrounds on the island, finding places to hunker down is oh-so-easy.
Imagine waking up on the edge of a beach, or to the sound of bird calls in an intimate forest. But beware: sitting beside a campfire and stargazing can be addictive. Some campgrounds have activities galore; others simply offer nature at its best. It’s all about taking a time out; connecting with yourself and others. Camping in Cape Breton always rejuvenates. Go modern; go wilderness. Either way, go wild.
