Meat Cove is an amazing place for nature or outdoor enthusiasts looking for an ocean-side retreat. The untouched wilderness is located on the far northern tip of Cape Breton Island. It's an amazing place to set up a tent, trailer or rent a cabin. But, if you're unable to stay the night, a day trip to Meat Cove Campground is a must do. Grab fresh Atlantic seafood at the Chowder Hut Restaurant or head out on one of the many hikes.
The rural fishing community is remote, which makes it that much more unique. Although it's not situated in Cape Breton Highland National Park, you will need to go through the park to get there. Not to worry though, for Canada 150 all visitors can access every National Park across the country for free! To get there you'll start along the Cabot Trail, but soon you'll find yourself along a rugged gravel road that offers spectacular views. Upon arriving the friendly staff at Meat Cove Campground will give you a tour of the campground and a map of the hikes that begin just steps away.
Catch the sunrise peak over the cliffs & shine on the Atlantic Ocean. Meat Cove, NS is a place you'll never forget.
