JOYFUL JOURNEY CAMPGROUND has an Absolutly Beautiful Location on the Cabot Trail featuring the ocean and mountains as the most beautiful view to wake up to.Our first 3 years camping was pretty good .In recent years the campground is in disrepair and any out buildings are very dirty as there doesn't appear to be any staff to take care of things .The atmosphere seems to be getting more toxic every year maybe as a result of how the park is being run and how the owner communicates .we recently decided to move to a different park after 7 years because of the attitudes and degrading comments of the owner at the beginning of this season about the many campers she kicked out in the previous year.

We visited twice and had a great experience. We are a couple who enjoy going to a beach and/or enjoying the sunshine during the day and sitting by a fire at night. The views are amazing. We met a few seasonal campers during our first stay and decided the atmosphere was great and returned for another weekend. One of the seasonal campers “ informed” us some campers were not happy but we had a good experience and had no negatives and since we keep to ourselves we decided to book again and considered going seasonal. When we called to book our third stay, the owner accused us of saying things that we didn’t say and said some very bizarre things over the phone. This is when we decided we would not return to Joyful Journeys because it seemed to be too much drama for us. It’s a shame because the views are amazing and the location is ideal. Please read the other reviews because there is a common thread. Beautiful location, bizarre owner.

It sounds like 2 out of 3 visits were great. It's true, many "seasonals" were not happy & I asked them to leave &/or did not renew their seasonal contract because they couldn't follow the rules. Others were angry that they couldn't control me & that I wouldn't tolerate their negativity, drama & excessive substance abuse. I did however inform them that there were other campgrounds abundant with those behaviours & mine was not one of them!! This is the truth, you may ask the MANY seasonals that are still here, many for decades & enjoy this peaceful paradise. If I said something "bizarre" to you, call me anytime, I would be happy to clarify any misunderstandings with you.

Right on the shore of Saint Anne`s Bay surrounded by beautiful mountains, this campground is a nature lovers dream. The sound of the surf is amazing during the night and the morning sunrise is magnificent. You can also walk the shore for miles (with your dogs, pet friendly) and not see a soul, very peaceful.

Thank you for your nice review of Joyful Journeys. We happy to welcome campers like you that enjoy the simple things in life. We aim to maintain a very natural "old school" way of camping. Beachcombing, swimming, hiking & kayaking are only a stone's throw away. We know that pets are special & they are always welcome here too!

Beautiful views,quiet,reasonable seasonal rates. 25 minute drive to Baddeck,40 minutes to Ingonish. 10 minutes to a spotlessly clean Simply Pizza, and just a little further down the road a delicious Resturant and bakery as well as numerous local crafts,shops,hiking trails, ceilidhs once a week and community flea markets,blueberry festivals all within a 20minute drive from the campground. Swimming in the Atlantic Ocean either on site or in fresh water at close by Indian brook. Fresh live lobster available within minutes during season, very pet friendly, some seasonal campers camping there for over 30 years. It can be as quiet or as busy as you like. Beauty and simplicity.

If you want a good camping experience, keep on driving! Where to start? The bathrooms are in disrepair, are not cleaned/ stocked properly and are locked on many occasions. The office is disgusting with a foul odor possibly coming from the five dogs who live there. There is mess everywhere, an insulting sign is in the window and food items being sold on the shelves. A Canada Select sign is displayed when it is obvious that many standards are not being met. The area of the park identified as a playground has outdated, dangerous equipment and a wooden structure which is totally unsafe for children. There are two pieces of jagged metal in the seesaw area which has been brought the owners attention many, many times. There are two rental cottages on site with improper bedding and very little privacy in the way of curtains. Cash only for lot fees despite what you might see on the website!! The owner? There are no words to describe her. Don’t be duped by her initial pleasant demeanour. Cape Breton has oodles of wonderful spots for a great camping experience. Joyful Journeys is not one of them!

I understand that you are angry that I did not renew your seasonal agreement for 2020. I explained my legitimate reasons to you why you were being asked to leave. You exploded with anger, name calling, threats & denials, even though you knew there were others who witnessed these behaviours as well. There are "no words" to describe you & your unacceptable behavior. You are not welcome here but maybe you'll find some place that will.
