Prince Edward Island’s Cedar Dunes Allows You To Get Off The Beaten Path

One of the best provinces for camping in Canada is surely Prince Edward Island, on the country’s east coast. There are dozens of excellent grounds to choose from, with one of the finest being the Cedar Dunes Provincial Park.

The campsite is located on a sparsely-populated stretch of the shoreline and it features the West Point Lighthouse. This is currently the only functioning lighthouse in the country and it also doubles as an inn.

It was built by the Coast Guard in 1875 and has a gift shop and museum inside.

It’s an ideal way to spend a night as you are presented with a fantastic view and can fall asleep to the sound of the waves kissing the shore.

The park has a wonderful white sandy beach that stretches for a mile and a half where you can relax and escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Cedar Dunes is protected by the government as it has environmental significance.

The Cedar Bog area of the park houses a fragile ecosystem which you will enjoy exploring by hiking through the guided nature trails. There’s also a provincial government campground there where you can pitch a tent and sleep under the stars. The campsite also lends out recreational equipment to campers.

If you’re a local resident or a visitor who’s looking for something a little different and off the beaten path, Cedar Dunes is an ideal place to visit.
