Cape Breton National Park

We are making plans for this coming summer (2013) to re-visit Cape Breton National Park (Canada). We were there a couple years ago for several days - way to short. The last time we stayed on the east coast at Broad Cove - beautiful. We want to stay on the west side this year and would like some feedback, as to stay in the Park at Cheticamp Campground, or stay a few miles south of the Park in the only private campground in the area. We want full hookups (E. W. & S.). We plan on staying 2 weeks for hiking and sea kayaking. Any recommendations?

Cheticamp, mile high butterscotch pie, don't miss it. Also, a trip to Cape Breton is not complete without a one night stop over in Meat Cove. Just go north from Cape North until the road runs out. The last 9k on gravel on the side of some hills. No harm to the Airstream since its hard to go over 10k/hr. (nor would one want to)

We stayed at the Cabot Trail Campground near Baddeck last summer, off loaded the MINI, and did the Cabot Trail counter clock wise, by heading East.

There are competing opinions about which way is best but this way you get maximum views.

I don't think you want to spent the effort hauling your trailer over the Trail. That kind of exhilaration is the wrong kind. You'll have plenty just driving.

If you stay overnight at Cheticamp Merry's Motel, run by a nice Swiss lady, is inexpensive and very clean.
