Heart of the Highlands

Blue Bayou Resort will be opening their doors for their Inaugural season in June 2019. Situated on South Harbour a few hundred metres from The Cape Breton National Park limits. Most visitors will drive all day just so they get back to their hotels in Baddeck or Sydney.  For this park to be enjoyed, you need to leave the beaten path as in "The Cabot Trail" to truly enjoy this part of the world. You'll have all the chances to do so when the whole Park is at your doorstep. Breathtaking place like White Point that is only up the road from our Campground or Meat Cove and Saint Laurence Bay at the tip of the Highlands less than 30 minutes drive. Cheticamp is only 90 minutes away on one side while Smokey Mountain is about  an hour drive on the other side "The outer limits of our National Park".

You can also spend some time kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding our Harbour or even spend the day at the beach that separates South Harbour from the Ocean. Then Enjoy your nights under a full blanket of stars roasting marshmallows in front of a campfire. Then wake up the next day just to let the sunrise over the Harbour fill your soul with serenity and begin yet another memorable day here at the Blue Bayou Resort.

We will have 23 luxurious 20 feet round geodesic domes fully equipped with private 3 pieces bathroom King or two Queen  size suite and room service. We'll also have 7 Classic Tipis that includes electrical.  After all, camping is meant to be enjoyable... Our campsite is still under construction and we will be putting up tents in the spring.
