  • Beautiful park and Campground. Very nice tent and RV sites with great views of the ocean. They allow fires in a pit. They sell firewood, and ice at the main gate. Immaculate grounds. Staff are very friendly. Bonnie was really helpful. We stayed at site 100 in a tent. Sites 100 and 101 are the nicest for camping in a tent, in our opinion.
  • Spent Four nights there in early June 2017. Loved it. One of the nicest provincial park camp grounds we have been to. The 2 way serviced sites were excellent. Our site was in an open area with a view of Mahone Bay. Even though the area was very open each site was very well spaced so even if the camp ground was full you would have tons of room and privacy. The washrooms and showers we excellent and we'll kept. The dumping station was great easy to access on your way in and out. Just an overall great experience. We will definitely be back.
  • We have been coming here for years. Really nice campground and close to bike trail. This a bit dissappointing as washrooms have not been cleaned in a number of days. Make sure you check toilets for ticks as we have found them everytime we went
  • Love this provincial campground. There are no activities for kids but don't have any so it doesn't matter to me.
  • Great place for camping near 1 km away from Peggy's Cove Replicas
