  • Provincially run campground, well maintained. Pleasant and accommodating staff. Dump station is near the exit, washrooms are decent but could do with an update. A dishwashing station is located just outside the washrooms. Full hook-up and unserviced sites available. Sites are fairly level. Not much tree cover though and privacy is above average. The campground has a nice trail leading to the water where you can see ducks swim and nice landscapes of the open water. About 45 minutes from Halifax and close to Peggy’s Cove.
  • Awesome camp ground, great facilities, lots of privacy at each of the camp sites. The sites are fairly large, each comes with a picnic table and fire pit. This is one of my favorite campgrounds/parks in Nova Scotia.
  • Nice place to camp. Stayed 1 night here in early August. The tent site we had was at the base of the hill (a ditch has been dug around it for protection) and didn't have much in the way of shade / privacy. However, it was a late booking for a 1 time stop, so it was adequate. The washrooms with running water were clean and well maintained. Staff at the gate and in the park were friendly and efficient. There is a nice walking trail along the outside with some nice views out over the water.
  • It is a nice place if you do not have kids. There is nothing for them, no playground and nothing for them to do once your daily excursions are over .
  • This is a beautiful park. Love the gated security and the sites were large and spaced out. We had an ocean view. It was wonderful. Cheap Fire wood and the launch ramp was perfect for our paddle boards. Tons of walking trails. The down side - the washrooms (female) was gross and dirty. I used the trailer shower for the first time ever to avoid going into the park facilities. We would come back for sure!
