RV Adventures on Prince Edward Island

Located off Canada’s East Coast, Prince Edward Island (PEI) is the nation’s smallest province, but it always leaves a big impression. You can reach PEI by bridge or ferry; the eight-mile-long Confederation Bridge is accessible all year-round and connects New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island across Northumberland Strait. Northumberland Ferries provides service from Nova Scotia to Prince Edward Island. The ferry crossings, available from May until December, take 75 minutes and offer food services onboard.

RV Destination

PEI is known for its stunning natural beauty, miles of shoreline and incredible culinary offerings. There are plenty of opportunities to have a vacation full of adventure, or to slow down and relax. Not surprisingly, Prince Edward Island is a favorite destination for RVers and RV rallies in Atlantic Canada. There are eight provincial campgrounds on the Island, and many of the parks offer daily activities for traveling families.

Brudenell River Provincial Park is the largest park in the eastern region with a daily scheduled programming for kids and a marina and river beach that can be enjoyed by all ages. Sea kayaks and paddle-boards can be rented on-site and there are horseback riding opportunities available on the premises. Next door to the park, is the Brudenell River Resort which includes two championship 18-hole golf courses.

Red Point Provincial Park is also on the eastern side of Prince Edward Island and prides itself with a stunning beach and supervised swimming. Red Point is only 10 minutes from Souris, and here you can find restaurants, souvenir shops, and an information center. Nearby attractions include the Basin Head Fisheries Museum and the East Point Lighthouse, where you can watch the meeting of the tides.

• The largest park in western PEI is Cabot Beach Provincial Park. This park has a large day-use area with playground equipment and an activity center with children’s programming. It also has supervised swimming on Malpeque Bay. At this park you can find the historic Fanning School which was built in 1794.
