We loved our stay at Smokey View. Blair was very hospitable and bent over backwards to ensure we had everything we needed and helped us find a good restaurant for dinner.

This was our first time in Cape Breton, and our host Blair's friendliness and camping location made it even more special. The site is absolutely incredible! Blair has created a nice level site for your camper and a grass area to sit and observe the water just in front of the site and cliffs in the distance. We ended up staying here a couple extra days as we could not bear to move on to our next scheduled site. We were able to spend evenings around the campfire with Blair, his daughter, and her family. He was immensely helpful guiding our visit to match our interests. He recommended the Franey hike which was a highlight of our trip. It really couldn't be more perfect.

WOW! What a fantastic campsite right on the water. There is even a small, private beach to take a dip. Blair was extremely friendly and had tons of great stories about the area including its history. We wish we could've stayed longer but alas...
Do not pass this one up!

Great place, one of the best on HipCamp we’ve seen. Host super nice and very helpful. Is in the perfect location to explore the Highlands. We couldn’t be happier.

.lClean and comfortable with private green and dock spaces to enjoy the bay and Cape Smokey, the site perfectly situated for exploring Cape Breton and the national park. To top it off, Blair knows pretty much everything about the areas trails, restaurants (do not miss the lobster club at the Seagull!) etc.

PS While the site is longer than it is wide, we had more than enough room to open the tent canopy that more than doubles the width of our trailer.

Highly recommended!

We loved staying here. Blair is a wonderful host, who ensured that we found the site and had everything we needed. The site itself is beautiful—right by the water, gorgeous views, level, and quiet. Highly recommended.

Blair has made an oasis for you! Level site right over the water - we followed his many local tips and really enjoyed our time here.
Fire pit, dock access and other thoughtful touches make this spot sing.
You are tucked next to a neighbors home but still have complete privacy - our 22’ airstream just fit with a confident driver backing it down to the site.

Absolutely gorgeous views! Very well-kept site. The grass section and dock access were very nice additions. The host was very friendly and gave us several recommendations for local things to do. Would definitely stay here again.

Incredible oceanside spot near Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The gravel drive made leveling the camper so easy. We will definitely be back!

Gorgeous lupins surround the area with great views around the bay.
