The tang of salt air, the sun-warmed scent of balsam fir, the aroma of cooking over a campfire, a walk to the Swallowtail Lighthouse to absorb the sunrise — these are the pleasant take-away memories from a visit to North Head Campground & Park. Whether you camp on one of our treed sites, stay in a cabin, or in our 28-foot travel trailer, you will remember your visit to Grand Manan.

Each site includes a campfire ring and picnic table. Enjoy a stay in one of the following:

  • Fully serviced sites, 30-amp electric, water, sewer (minimum 3-night stay). These sites are open for pull-thru and back-in RV and trailers.
  • Semi-serviced sites, 20-amp electric, water.
  • Tent sites, 20-amp electric.
  • 2 camp cabins.
  • 1 trailer.

There are two 8 × 12′ insulated camp cabins. Each cabin has electricity, two single beds, table and chairs, microwave, heater, bedding and towels, picnic table and fire ring. Kitchen and washroom facilities are available in the Reception buildings nearby.

A 28-foot travel trailer comfortably accommodates a family of four. It is fully set up with a complete kitchen, bedding, 30-amp electric, water and sewer. It sits on a large private site with ample parking, picnic table, fire ring and gas BBQ.
