  • We wanted to experience the extreme tides in the Bay of Fundy during our tour of Nova Scotia. Hall's Corner was recommended, but we could only stay a couple of hours and would not see a full range of ...  more »
  • A little out of the way down country roads but a very nice stop. Outdoor washrooms just past the parking lot. Large staircase down to the sandy beach. Cliffs are a beautiful red colour  more »
  • The perspective from all the look offs is stunning - you get a very clear picture of the power of the tides. As a bonus, there are some great hiking trails and a huge beach, especially at low tide. PR...  more »

  • Beautiful scenery and beach. You can see and feel the power of the bay of Fundy here. On the other side of that beach is Scott's bay where lots of people go rock hunting. On Blomidon park ypu can go down to the beach aswell and walk along the iron rich red cliffs as the water drains out of the bay. It's amazing to see the tides come back in and to see how high the water rises. Places you would have walked on the beach would now be underwater.
  • Fantastic views, staff was very pleasant, clean washrooms. Only reason for 4 stars is there was a notice in the washroom stating the water wasn't safe to drink without boiling. Can't carry a lot of water on a motorcycle so it was a little inconvenient. Other than that everything was great!
  • An amazing stay. This camp ground is full of many things to do and near by places to explore. We camped out for 2 nights. The price is extremely reasonable. It was around $26 a night. This includes Parking for one. To add another car in (to camp on your site is $8). It’s worth it. Camp fires are a must so make sure you pick up your firewood from the office. Bundles are very well priced at $5 each. Well with it as they are hefty bundles. We camped at site 31 it was the best because it was shaded and a little more private. I would recommend site 31, 32, and 33. They have fire pits, a table, and lots of space to have 2 or 3 large tents. The hike is with it. It’s not very difficult but it’s got some great views. It took us about 1 hour 45 minutes. We walked slow the way up and fast the way back. The campground was not loud at all. Because of the trees it gave a little more privacy and didn’t carry sound from site to site. Overall highly recommended :)
  • This is some of the best views and outdoor fun one can ever see and do on mainland nova Scotia
  • the park was closed. so just went by the bay instead. nice spot to unwind.. will come back and do some trail hike and see the park. 👍🏽
