It all depends on what you are looking for. The first week we were there we stayed at PEI National Park and it was nice if you were looking for a large sandy beach in the one relatively touristy part of the island (Cavendish). We had full 30A hookups and Parks Canada has a great user-friendly website for making reservations. FHU was ~$38/night (Canadian $)

The national park was very nice, but there is a surprisingly large amount of tree cover so it is rather dark and satellite TV was impossible. As is always the case at such parks, people seemed to come and go without getting to know one another.

The west side of the island can be a bit crowded with tourists coming to see the Green Gables stuff but there are lots of shops, restaurants and things for kids to do. We used that week to explore the entire western side of the island and went all the way to North Cape and visited the Canadian Potato Museum (a really neat place).

We enjoyed it so much that we went to RVParkReviews and found a CG on the extreme eastern side of the island at Murray Harbour North--Seal Cove Campground. It was a very different kind of RV park in a much more rural setting. The park has ~100 sites (most on grass in a field). There's a small private beach, a pool, a playground and huge group sandbox, a 9-hole golf course and mini-golf. It's owned by a great young couple and there were always a ton of (well behaved) kids around playing together. Probably half the sites were seasonals, most of which were occupied by people who live on PEI, many of them literally just around the corner. They are friendly and welcoming and through them we found out about all sorts of local concerts (called ceilidh's), plays, etc.

Even though the park is in a very rural setting, the nearest "big town" (Montague with 5,700 people) has two major grocery stores and is only ~12 miles away. There's so little traffic that driving there is no big deal. And the fastest speed limit on the island is 54 mph (90 km/hr) and that's limited to 3 highways. The rest of the roads are limited to 48 mph (80 km/hr).

You can tell from my comments that we had a good time, but we like getting to really know a place and by the time we left we were going to ceilidhs several times a week. Not everyone we meet wants to kick back and relax like that. Another couple from the US stayed at Seal Cove while we were there. They said they had seen the entire west side of the island in the previous couple of days and stayed two days seeing the east side; then they left. I guess they felt they had seen it all.

If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me.
Joel

If your there the first week of July you can see a Tattoo, great show, and many other things to see also, we use to take it as a two week trip.
You can tour the harbor and all navel docks before the Tattoo in afternoon.

With all due respect, Tattoo is held in Halifax NS. We saw it this summer before going to PEI. Even though Halifax is drivable from PEI, the $45 bridge toll does keep you from doing it as a day-trip!
