    St Ann's Bay Campark is located just a mile or two north of the Englishtown ferry in the village of Jersey Cove. It is a fairly large private campground with mostly seasonal sites.


    Arriving on a Saturday afternoon in August without a reservation is a risky venture, but that's our usual MO. We got lucky here; although the campground was essentially full, owner Katannya Kayler found us a spot. And actually it was a pretty nice one, right down by the water and nicely shaded. No hookups though, but that wasn't an issue for us.

    Date of visit: Aug 2009

    Here you can see how close we were to the beach. The beach is covered with small stones, but seemed to be a popular swimming spot.

    As far as I could tell, sites aren't numbered.

    Most of the waterfront sites are for tents and have no hookups, but there was one area with a few hookup sites at the water's edge.

    Most of the sites are in the open and are crowded rather closely together.

    There is a small recreation building (in the background).

    Looking down towards the water, you can just make us out under the tree in the distance.
