Camping- Chéticamp vs Broad Cove / Ingonish

by stillbrewing Online Now Jun 4, 2009 at 7:36 PM

My wife & I are planning to camp 2 nights in Cape Breton Highlands National Park in early August and are trying to decide which of the 2 areas above would be best.

We would prefer to stay on the west coast (Cheticamp), but want a campsite on/near the coastline (Ingonish).

We want the best location for stunning scenery & a good selection of hiking trails. A good beach would be a bonus. Also, would the water be warmer on the Gulf side rather than the Atlantic side ?

Can anyone suggest one "side" over the other ?

Thanks !

    Hi... I noticed your posting got no response so was wondering if you proceeded with your plans and had any suggestions for others. I am planning a visit summer 2010 and would be looking for similar camping then. Any suggestions?
    Thank you.

    Hello, thanks for the reply...

    We ended up changing our plans & stayed more "local" (went to Charlevoix instead).

    But we are considering trying to make the trek our to CBI and area next year as well.

    Cheers !
