Traveling to campgrounds in Prince Edward Island begins your adventure. From New Brunswick, cross the curved 8-mile long the Confederation Bridge—the longest in the world crossing ice-covered water. A decade after its construction, it is still considered one of Canada’s top engineering achievements of the 20th century. Or you can take a 75-minue ferry ride on the Northumberland Ferries. Visitors to Prince Edward Island consider this a highlight of their trip.

While camping in Prince Edward Island fit in some firsts. If you’ve never caught and cooked your own lobster, then visit the Expo-Festival Centre in Abram Village and do just that. At Point Prim, gather some of the edible sea plants and cook your meal of seaweed soup, dulse biscuits, and Irish Moss dessert from May through October at Seaweed Secrets. Year-round, join an oyster fisher at Tong & Shuck in Bedeque and shuck and eat your oysters straight out of the water.
Once parked at one of the campgrounds in Prince Edward Island you can start exploring by bicycle and you don’t have to bring your own. With 25 bicycle rental shops on the Island, you can take in any of the great bike trails. One of the best is the Confederation Trail with 221 miles of flat, groomed surface.
But not all activities have to be on dry land. The island is surrounded by warm summer water. So while camping in Prince Edward Island you can snorkel, swim, seal watch, or parasail. Canoeing and kayaking is also a great way to see the sites. Visit the Singing Sands Beach at Basin Head, where your footsteps on the white sand produces an interesting sound, much like a squeak. Of course, it’s not the only beach. Prince Edward Island has approximately 500 miles of the warmest beaches north of the Carolinas.
One of the reasons many come to Prince Edward Island is from reading Anne of Green Gables to see the places where the novel was set. In 2010, Anne of Green Gables – The Musical, marked its 45th season on stage at the Charlottetown Festival. Visit the Green Gables farmhouse in Cavendish or the Anne of Green Gables Museum in Kensington.
When camping in Prince Edward Island, make sure to bring along your clubs. If you caught the Big Break television series, it was shot at Mill River Golf Course in Summerside. Even though the island is small, it’s big on golf courses—30-plus. The Links at Crowbush Cove, Dundarave, or Brudenel River are considered among the top courses in North America. And you don’t always have to leave the kids behind, bring them along to some of the excellent nine-hole courses on the island.
While staying at one of the campgrounds in Prince Edward Island, use your GPS to find one of the many hidden geocaches. And, if you’re a lighthouse lover, you’ve found the mother lode with more than 20 that dot the coastline. Climb to the top of some to see panoramic views of the island.
