"Hideaway Campground & Oyster Market must be put on your Top 10 places to visit!!!! We happened upon Hideaway by accident in 1995 and have been returning almost every year since! (The two and one-half day's drive is well rewarded! ) Each year Alex & Sue have made improvements for their guests.

Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking/canoeing, or just relaxing on the beach - this place is the best! Located "off the beaten path", it is truly a hidden gem! Talk about a seafood lovers dream... Oysters from the Harbor; lobster & snow crab (in season) from trap to office - you can't get any fresher than that!! (A note to the motorcycle enthusiast: the Cabot Trail is an exhilarating experience!)

Hideaway Campground has given our family; vacation memories of a lifetime. No truer words have ever been in print than at the bottom of their webpage: "Come As Strangers; Leave As Friends"

"I just wanted to say that I had a wonderful time staying at Hideaway Campground. The view was breathtaking and the hospitality was first rate. I really enjoyed my visit, as did my husband and daughter. Thanks so much for everything, and we will be visiting again very soon."

"The most impressive campground on Cape Breton Island for views, beaches, cleaniness, campsite space and hospitality. We will definitely visit every summer."

" I rarely ever leave comments but I think something needs to be said about this campground.  It's true what they say about coming as strangers and leaving as friends.  Everyone there is really friendly & it's a nice welcoming environment.  We chatted with Alex upon arrival whom gave us great information about our trip to Meat Cove the following day, said he was going there as well.  He even remembered us when we passed him on the road in Meat Cove & waved.  It's just something small but really makes you feel welcome."

"Located at the north tip of Cape Breton Island, the Hideaway Campground is a place you'll want to come back to again & again. The view of the ocean & mountains is beautiful."
