Heart of the Highlands
Blue Bayou Resort will be opening their doors for their 2nd season in May 2020. 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, just up the road from our Campground or Meat Cove and Bay Saint Laurence 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. Enjoy 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.
In 2020, we will have 17 luxurious 20 feet round geodesic domes fully equipped with private 3 pieces bathroom King or Double Queen size suite and room service. We'll also have 3 Classic Tipis that includes electrical. And NEW for this year, 12 full service RV sites. After all, camping is meant to be enjoyable...
2019 was a memorable first year and I've experience many smiles and excited glampers. I've met a lot of people from all over our planet and shared some memories with most of them. I can't wait to meet my new guests and some returning guests.
