The campground is owned by Murray and Dot, two individuals that we had the pleasure to get to know during our motorcycle tour to Nova Scotia. Fabulous people. They are the kind of people you feel you have known for years after talking with them for 5 minutes. They managed to squeeze us in despite that they were full. Live music during the weekends. Very friendly atmosphere. Will definitely camp there again. Clean bathrooms and showers. We camped here in a Tent.
We gave this a 5 because of it's close walking distance to the old town of Lunenburg. The hookups were conflicting from site to site. Some sites like ours were Not level. Wi-Fi was very good. We would only stay here again because of the close walking distance to the town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The location is excellent. We were able to walk down town from the campground and visit all the attractions. The staff was friendly and eager to provide assistance on attractions in the area. We attended the Thursday Farmers Market which we thoroughly enjoyed. The RV sites were a little short but worked okay. The sewer connection was difficult because the connection was below ground level in a pipe. It had rained and the sites were muddy and with ruts. They definitely need to apply some crush rock to the RV sites. Internet service was very good and fast. There are no laundry facilities and no shade trees. It was a quiet campground except for the fog horn one night. We camped there 3 nights, and we would probably stay there again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
On an elevation at the edge of Lunenburg with a nice visiting center, free WiFi, with a single simple bathhouse, an upper flat gravel/grass area with E-W shared by two sites,and a lower level that I am not sure if had E-W and without a bathhouse.There is a great view of a bay behind the town from the campground. Steep streets down to town with lots of tourist attractions and actual boat works and several tall ships. The seaport museum at the wharf is a really well done gem and worth spending several hours there. Well done talks are given by staff, and there is a free boat ride about the harbour included with the museum fee. The campground is way overpriced itself and is really just a convenient place to stay to visit Lunenburg. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a delight to find in the center of the most picturesque city in Nova Scotia. Not fancy but more than adequate. I would give it a 10 but for not having 50 amp. They have 22 electric, water, sewer sites. Odd # sites 14-22 are best for big rigs as the electric pedestals are shared and the even #'s have the electric on the passenger side. We had site #22 but fortunately had a extra cord that made it around the RV. Run by the city, the office is in the Visitor Information Center (in Canada known as VIC on the maps and signs) The staff is more than friendly and helpful. Only 30 miles to Halifax and plenty to see around here. Would stay here again without question. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived on a Monday and were one of a small number of RVs. By Tuesday the campground was nearly full, so reservations are advised. Fee shown is for water and electric. The campground isn't much to talk about; just a place to stay but with nice views of the back harbour. Sites are all unshaded so we had no trouble hooking up satellite TV. The Wi-Fi was intermittent at 130 feet from the visitor center. Tenters from the tenting area needed to walk through occupied sites to get to the single wash house for the campground. The campground is an excellent spot to be for visiting the historic town of Lunenburg. No car is needed when staying here as the town is immediately below. Returning to the campground from town is a bit of a climb. Visitor center on site; staff was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend the Fisheries Museum; allow a few hours. Local churches are open to the public and have interesting histories. A two mile walking rail trail over to the far side of town is just outside the campground. Nova Scotia's 15% sales tax really adds to the bill for purchases other than unprepared food, including postage stamps! We'd stay in this campground again if we happened to return to this area of Nova Scotia. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small campground attached to the visitor's center. It is located on a hill next to the historic town, so you don't need a car. We walked- just be aware that the town is hilly and walking back to the campground is uphill. We did not need a reservation, just drove in, but most likely later in the season you would. While there is not much to do at the campground itself, it is a great base to explore the area and the town. The museum in town is well worth a visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had to settle for electric and water as a caravan was arriving and using the e/w/s sites. The bathhouse is clean but the showers are very small. Park has beautiful views of the back harbor from lower sites; it's convenient to historical sites and the waterfront; and has friendly staff. It has fairly level gravel sites. The steep and gravel drive down to the lower sites is not recommended for big rigs. WiFi only at a few sites near the visitor center. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent location east of town on a bluff with bay views on both sides. Few trees for good satellite access. Easy walk into town to tour or eat. Wifi only at office,check-in block-house is also regional tourist information, very friendly & helpful. Has toll free reservation # 888-615-8305. We would happily stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
So much potential but so disappointing. Needs major work and a professional company to manage it. The bathrooms were not kept up, and no warm water in our shower. Grass had not been cut recently, and roads need to be widened and potholes removed. The only bright spot was the restaurant and the view of the ocean. Will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is in a wonderful location and the park has a lot to offer. RV sites are average to above average size and have a gorgeous view of the ocean. There's also an on site restaurant with great food. However, the park is in need of maintenance and repairs and therefore made the expensive price tag a little hard to understand. The grass hadn't been mowed in more than 2 weeks. Signs and fencing were in need of repair. Debris was left in some sites. Could be worth the high per night rate if just maintained better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Despite the horrible bathrooms and showers out in the main campground that we had to drive to, the site right on the water made up for everything. You will not find this anywhere else. We had #117, but most on that side are awesome. Love the goats and pigs. Wish they had Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great view from the Oceanfront sites, unfortunately our 40 MH with 4 slides wouldn't fit the site assigned to us without driving through the fire pit, and without our neighbors on the driver's side bringing their awning in, and even then, our slides would have been in their site. There are some that looked to be large enough, but they wouldn't swap us with what turned out to be a pop-up, instead letting us find a place for ourselves. There were 2 possible sites, both in a field. The site was level and the utilities on the opposite side. When we started to gear up to leave, one of our jacks had sunk about 6 inches into the ground. If we were in something much smaller, and had an oceanfront site we would probably come back, but not in what we have. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here five nights, on a water front site (301) right next to the restaurant. We thought it was going to be a problem being that close, turned out it wasn't. We woke up every morning to an amazing unobstructed view of the ocean, 50 feet away. The owners play in the little restaurant next door every night from 8 to 11. Pleasant to listen to and the kids could go in. Very interesting place with cliffs and rock structures. We enjoyed it alot, was a bit pricey, but the view is spectacular and makes up for it. We would go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Some sites have beautiful views, others are mostly field camping. We stayed in May and the pool was not operational. They have a nice walking trail but the field site was not level. The view of the playground is good but the equipment is dated. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall this is a nice park with an excellent view: some would say outstanding. Mineral content in water is fairly high so we drank bottled water. Unknown if power was 30 or 50 amps, it was enough for our 26 ft trailer. Did not appear to have pull through sites. Fairly cold on the water side for May, suspect it would be a gorgeous place in July/Aug. Sea Caves trek is a nice touch. Restaurant was not open in May, but is scheduled to be opened in June. Overall not bad: would have had higher score if more of the amenities had been opened. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
