Campground Overview

As your gateway to the Acadian Peninsula, Ocean River RV Resort and Campground offers you a safe, tranquil and beautiful setting on the Tabusintac River. Fully equipped with both full service and electric/water only sites, fire rings and picnic tables, we also offer a couple of cabins or a two bedroom RV for rent. Clean washrooms are our standard, with free hot shower facilities.

Situated in the tidal headwater region of the Tabusintac River, we offer lots of amenities such as canoeing, kayaking, and paddleboard, outdoor pool, camp store, and wilderness trails in our 30 acres of forest. Refresh yourself in our sparkling clean pool or bask in the sun deck side.

The onsite recreation centre and store provide space to host weddings, family reunions, and corporate events. When not in use for events, enjoy refreshments in the shade of the outdoor pavilion.

Children in your care must be always under your supervision, especially around water. Their safety and conduct are your responsibility. Should any damages be incurred by those in your care, and restitution not satisfactorily resolved, the costs will be charged to your account.

Check in / Check out

You may check in to your campsite or roofed accommodation any time after 2pm on your reserved arrival date to receive your vehicle permit. Should you arrive after the office is closed, you will find your vehicle permit, site number or accommodation key on a clip board on the wall beside the office. Check out time for all accommodation is noon. Additional fees will accrue at the rate of $20 per hour for late departures. You do not need to contact the office for check out unless fees are owing.


In order to keep a tidy looking park, storage of items other than camp gear such as BBQ’s is not permitted under or around your RV or picnic table (firewood excepted). Please store toys inside your RV or in an enclosed outdoor container.


All visitors must register at the office, pay a fee ($7 per visitor – includes one vehicle, 12 and under free), and receive a parking permit. Visitors may not bring pets or stay overnight. Ocean River RV Resort reserves the right to limit the number of people visiting a site. Visitors must depart by 10:00 pm AST. Registered guests are responsible for ensuring their visitors are properly registered and that all campground rules are followed. Short meetings, or visitors who are dropping off items to a camper may meet the camper at the office or outdoor pavilion (if not in use for an event), without paying the daily fee. A parking permit will still be required, except for drop and go visitors. All visitors are to park in the designated parking area, beside the Recreation Hall with their Vehicle Pass visible at all times.


Parking for one vehicle is included in your reservation. We allow one vehicle per site, whether parked at your site or in the parking lot. Additional vehicles will be charged $7 per day, and must have a vehicle permit (obtained from the office). Parking is available in the lot beside the office. Please do not park your vehicle, trailer, or boat in an adjacent site, even if it appears unoccupied.

Safety and Emergencies

Contact information is required for all guests, in the case of emergency. This information remains confidential

Seasonal Campers

We welcome seasonal guests on a limited basis. Seasonal campers must abide by the terms and conditions outlined in this document, and agree and sign a formal rental Agreement. Please see park staff to arrange a site.

Smoking / Vaping

Smoking or vaping is not permitted inside any of the property buildings, in the pool enclosure, leash free dog park, or within 6 metres of the playground area. Please discard cigarette or cigar butts in a safe and clean manner. Drugs are not permitted on the property and are cause for eviction.


Outdoor rugs are permitted, however if your stay is longer than one week, we ask that you take it up for a day to allow the grass to recover.

Event Hall / Pavillion Rental

Hourly rental of space for group events can be arranged with any of our staff. A deposit by credit card is required. The event spaces used must be left clean and free of garbage. You are responsible for your guests’ compliance with park rules. Visitors attending a private event are not required to pay the daily visitor fee, but must obtain, and display a permit. Weddings, retreats, and corporate events are arranged contractually with the office. Please speak to one of our staff for details.


For the comfort of all our guests, restrooms are open 24/7, apart from temporary closing for cleaning and sanitizing. We ask for your help in keeping the restrooms clean, and to advise staff should they need attention.

RV Washing

Spot washing of RVs is permitted with a bucket of water and sponge. Only environmentally friendly soaps are permitted. Hose washing is not permitted, as it can result in a mess and disturb your neighbors.

Quiet Time

Quiet time is 10 pm to 8am. Noise infractions will be firmly enforced with expulsion possible for non compliance.

Pet Policy

Ocean River RV Resort is pet friendly, but for the safety of your pet and other guests, your dog(s) must be leashed at all times. We offer a leash free fenced area behind the cabins, where your dog can get some energy out! Your pet must be supervised at all times while in the dog enclosure, and must be well socialized. Use of the dog park is at your own risk and responsibility. Please register your pet at the office, along with your contact information in case of emergency. We allow a maximum of 2 pets per site or cabin. For the enjoyment of other guests, do not bring fido if he is a frequent barker, or aggressive and always pick up after your dog and dispose of waste in designated bins. Pets are not permitted in buildings, pool or playground area or on furnishings. Do not leave your pet unattended or permitted to bark excessively.

Pool and Playground

The pool area is open from 10am to 7pm daily. There is no lifeguard on duty: you are responsible for keeping yourself and children in your care safe. The pool has a maximum depth of 5 feet and therefore diving is not permitted. For the safety of all, horseplay, and running is not permitted. Please use only swim diapers in the pool for your baby. Food is not permitted inside the pool enclosure, and beverages must be in plastic containers. Children 12 and under are welcome to use the playground. Bullying in the pool or playground area will not be tolerated. Children throwing sand or stones, using profanity or littering will be asked to leave.

Laundry Clotheslines

Clotheslines are not permitted. A discreet drying rack for wet towels or small laundry items may be used within the confines of your site.


The laundry room is currently open during office hours only, and cannot be used during events. Usage fee is $8.00 per load (includes wash and dry). Please see store staff for payment and key. Do not leave your laundry unattended. Use is at your own risk. We are not responsible for accidents or theft. * Note that plans are in place to update and relocate the laundry facility to the rear of the Rec centre, allowing for 24/7 access. Please be patient with us as we make this change a reality!

Fires and Firewood

Fires must be contained within the designated fire rings. Please do not move the fire ring, it has been placed in what is deemed as the safest location. Ocean River RV Resort will comply with provincial and regional fire bans to ensure the safety of our guests. We will monitor alerts and post fire ban notices outside the office, when required. Fire bans will be strictly enforced. We do not permit firewood to be brought in from outside the park. This is to prevent the introduction of insect species, wood disease and to save our clients from excessive smoke from wet wood. And yes, our business model is predicated on our guests purchasing firewood which helps keep our cost per site down! Our staff will provide you with a free bundle of firewood for your first night. Additional firewood may be purchased from the store.


Refuse and recycling containers are located throughout the park. Please tie bags before placing in the trash receptacle. We currently recycle only cans and bottles, which may be placed in the blue container beside the refuse bin. Do not leave garbage outside your site as insects and animals both small and large will be attracted to it, creating safety issues (black bears and skunks are not uncommon here). Pet waste is to be placed in the designated bins. Hazardous waste items are prohibited in the park and in disposal bins. The onsite dumpster is for staff use only. Disposal fees will be charged for any items illegally dumped.


Please use main roads, and designated public paths to walk around the campground. Do not cut or deface trees or shrubs ATV’s and dirt bikes are not permitted Do not litter
