We stayed 3 nights. Staff was very friendly and gave us a lot of local information. They escorted us to our site, which was grassy and level, with some trees. The restrooms were close and had been completely renovated very recently; they were beautiful. The laundry room was clean and large. There is a small store with the office. There was no cell phone signal in the park. Wi-Fi was OK, but cost $5 per device for the three days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were greeted in a very friendly manner and received a lot of good info about the local area (Don't miss the Tidal Bore). Asked for 30 amp service to save a couple of bucks and found it was same price as 50. Hmmm! Was told Wi-Fi was $5 for three days and we were just overnight so don't need it. They told me it was available free in the club house. Club house was small building furnished somewhat like a den with chairs and a desk. Did not try the Internet. Was led to a nice enough spot. No shade but well maintained. Plenty of trash cans and close to the adequate bath and laundry facility. It was level but the gravel tracks weren't all that well done. Grass was well maintained and electrical was fine. The campground is close to a good, not cheap, local grocery with good baked goods and fresh veggies, etc. We did not eat in the local area. As a one-nighter this place is fine. It appears they really have to do some work on the Wi-Fi. Other residents reported it as poor to spotty. We would stay overnight again but it is not like there is a lot of local choice. With Wi-Fi improvement it would be an 8, or even a 9 for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this campground before and, as in this occasion, found it clean and friendly, with large sites and great facilities. We will certainly return and look forward to camping in this wonderful campground again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a park that has the potential to be tremendously better. Office personnel were friendly upon arrival and guided us to our site. The transient sites are pull thru's in a grass field with some trees and set apart from the seasonals. The site pad had short gravel strips where the wheels were expected to go, otherwise its all grass. Gravel was recently laid, poorly prepped, lumpy and graded such that it made it a challenge to level the RV. Our particular site also had a small "outhouse style" electrical building close enough that the awning could not be used. Otherwise, the park was clean but tired looking, similar to their entrance sign which was faded and peeling but still erect. There is a pool which is elevated and rather plain with a simple concrete patio and a chain link fence close to its perimeter. We did not use the restroom facilities. Water pressure was around 30psi. The 30 amp electric was good. However, for those of you who depend on the internet as you travel, you need to be advised as to how this park operates their service. Park management is very concerned about their guests using up all the bandwidth. They have instituted a draconian process to control access using the MAC address, which is the physical address of the Wi-Fi card built into your device. They charge you $2 for EACH computer or smart phone you register. Once they have authorized your MAC, you are given a password to access the internet. Then you find out they use ancient router technology that is so slow you could push a rope uphill faster. The next morning we could no longer access the internet so we presume they removed our MAC authorization at midnight. Bizarre!! We talked to management about it and they went on the defensive, arguing with us that they had the best system available and offered no refund. For what you get, this is an expensive park for an overnight stay and there are other parks in the area that we would try the next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pleasant RV park well-located for going to and from Nova Scotia. There are shady sites along a stream, mostly for tents and small trailers. Bigger rigs are arranged around a large field. Good hook-ups. They charge $2 for Wi-Fi which I always think is annoying. There is a large meeting space available for rallies (one for Excel going on while we were there). Laundromat and small dusty store. Nice owners. Fine for a stop-over. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground for one night. The check-in process was very friendly, and we were given some information of things to see in the area. We were told that there was Internet, but that they needed the computer address so they could hook it direct to the router. We were escorted to our site, which was in an open field (no problem) The sites are very long, but narrow. Not too bad with the leveling. We had a 50 amp service as we were told we could not have the water heater on the 30 amp. if the breaker would trip and they would have to reset we would have to pay an extra $10.00. When we went to the office to give them our computer info we were told it would cost $2.00. Internet was very slow and timed out. In the morning I tried to get on the Internet at 6 AM and they had kicked us off the router already. The owner of the campground said it should not have happened. He also defended this very antiquated system and the charges. Would we stay here again? Not sure. Campground owners have to realize that Internet is very important for most people these days. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great office staff, and they escort you to your site, explain where to hook up, give you water pressure information which is really good. Water was crystal clear with great taste, and voltage was good. We needed propane and were told to just set it out in front of the trailer; they came by, picked it up, filled it, and brought it back. They even helped a fellow camper make a repair to his awning bracket. Services with a smile. Our down grade would be the sites could be a little more level with more gravel since the area is mostly grass. We would definitely go back to this campground and recommend it should anyone ask. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Owners very involved in park care. Willing to help with any issues that might arise. Open park. Easy big rig access. Internet worked well. Power 50 amps - good quality. Water good. Park - immaculate. Located on clean flowing river. I will return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'd describe this campground as adequate for an overnight stop. We explicitly asked about the wifi when we called ahead as we needed to do some work on the internet, and they'd assured us it was all fixed and good. It worked intermittently and was so slow that websites kept timing out. There are lots of mosquitoes as well, so we spent the evening in the trailer. We would probably not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice roomy, level grass sites. Wi-Fi worked very well until a Caravan pulled in, and now it's slower, but workable. Friendly staff, and the park is very clean. Not a destination campground, but it looks to be an excellent spot for exploring the area. We will come back if in the area, or if we decide to explore more of the area than we will be able to do on this stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice little park, located approximately 15 minutes from Truro, NS. The owners were very friendly, and accommodating. The sites were level, and the park was very clean. Although the sites are side-by-side, there is so much open green space that the park has a very spacious feel. The Laundry and washrooms were well located and extremely clean, and trash receptacles were conveniently located throughout the park. There is a large play area for the kids, and a very nice swimming pool. In addition to the pool, the Debert River runs right along side of the park. Some of the tent sites are riverfront, and and there is a small beach access within the park for swimming and tubing! Very nice. An added convenience was that they sell propane. We travel with our dogs, and found plenty of green space to walk them. We would definitely return. Nice park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$38 a night, but was $35 with Good Sam, then $2 for internet, thus the rate posted. Pretty campground with low water pressure and tons of mosquitos. Would stay here again if needed an overnight enroute. It's not a destination campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$36 plus tax including Good Sam discount. Wi-Fi is good but $2 extra cost. Give no camp information, rules or layout, just lead you to site. Good is the electric, levelness of site, grassy site, water taste and pressure, and Verizon cell service. Site spacing 24 feet. Camp store has a remarkable selection of RV parts. They also advertise RV service. TV limited to four local channels. No cable. At 063 degrees longitude the camp is out of range for DirecTV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here because the information said this CG had Wi-Fi. No cellphone service in the area for us so Wi-Fi was important. Upon settling in we found that the Wi-Fi was not working. Back to the office: the answer we got was "Oh well, it was working yesterday. Go down the road and use the Wi-Fi at a business there." The wrong answer. Hours later the Wi-Fi was working: sort of. Somebody did something. We were not the only ones to complain about non working Wi-Fi. Instead of staying multiple nights, we moved on the next day. For $35 we expected better. Overall a nice CG, just not the Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice park for big rigs. Pull through sites are easy to navigate and level. Owners are very helpful with suggestions for local area places to see. No Wi-Fi or TV service. Very good location for seeing the area as you are about 8-10 miles west of Truro with easy access to the Trans Canada highway. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quaint little campground with easy access from the TransCanada highway. There were large (45 ft) rigs in the park: very easy to maneuver and level. Had a problem with our 50 amp breaker as it tripped one day. Very reasonable rates here and close to Truro, plus you can easily drive to Halifax, Peggy's Cove or Burntcoat for day-trips. Very family friendly. Wi-Fi is cheap: good bandwidth and good signal. We would definitely stay here again! Great rates. The lady who answers the phone, takes the reservation. You do not send in a deposit: just trust her. She was very nice and we had a great site! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate includes the Good Sam discount. Lots of space here; pull-thrus on grass were very long. Full hook-up w/50 amps is a plus. Convenient to Truro and a half-mile from Masstown Market which is a must. Staff were very nice and laundry/restrooms appeared very clean. Wi-Fi was pretty good. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large level sites in a country setting. About an hour from Halifax. Truro, the nearest large town, is only 10 minutes away and has plenty of shopping, supermarkets, etc. Our Verizon phone service was marginal and we had to use a Direct TV dish on a tripod since our dome would not pick up a good signal. The owner went out of his way to accommodate any requests and is a RV technician. He helped me out with a problem and refused to charge me. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is well maintained and an excellent overnight campground as it is located a very short distance of Route. 104 in Nova Scotia. The sites are very long and the width is decent we had a 37'Motorhome and were towing and did not have to unhitch the car. The bathrooms are super and very clean. They have W/E sites and tent sites near the river/creek. We used it as a base camp to tour Nova Scotia and Cape Breton. But it is a 2 hr drive to the beginning of the Cape so I would not recommend it as a place to tour Cape Breton. But it is close to the Tidal Bore and only an hour away from Halifax. Also it is less than an hour to the ferry to PEI. There is a pool and playground equipment but NO planned activities so kids may get bored here. Very nice quiet campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although this campground does not have a view, it is one of our favorites in Nova Scotia. The sites are pull-through, level, not too close to the neighbors, and the laundry area and washrooms are spotless and clean. It is a well kept campground run by a very friendly family. We love it here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Gravel interior roads and grass sites. Nice and quiet. Campground owner has a RV shop on site. Only complaint, other than over priced for what you get, was low water pressure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Place was crazy with kids. Perfect for them, didn't work so well for us. Wi-Fi wasn't working. Pull-through site adequate but very tight. Went there unplanned so did not know what to expect. We did get out of the pouring rain. Many very happy "seasonals". We were in a 36' rig. Would not return. Rowdy crowd. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a great time at the Hidden Hilltop. We stayed in this area because we were visiting family near by. But this turned out to be a great area. The campground was great! They had a big jumping pillow. A pool. Playgrounds. A giant soap slide. And more. The sites were large and level. There was a large rec hall where they had bingo and country music jam sessions. The bath houses were clean. The staff was super friendly. We had a wonderful time. However, there are things to note if you go there. The bath houses are few and far between. So if you need to be near one, you should request that. The Wi-Fi doesn't reach all of the sites, so if you really need Wi-Fi, then you need to request placement in a site that has good access. They charge extra for the Wi-Fi, but the price is very low. We really loved our stay there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at the campground for 1 night on our way to the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia. It is a nice campground. Check in was adequate. The gate was a tight fit for our 30 foot trailer to maneuver but we managed. There were several pull through sites which make it very easy to set up. The pedestal had sufficient power and the water pressure was a little on the low side. As stated in previous posts wifi should be standard at every campground. We had to go to the office/ rec hall to use wifi (which was better than none). They have plenty of activities for the kids (pool, a very long slip and slide, bouncy house, a few farm animals etc). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A great family campground. These new owners go out of their way to make your visit as pleasant as possible. There are many activities for the younger campers too. This is a true family campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Hidden Hilltop gets a BIG A+! It was Such fun for us! We had a roomy place to park And a campfire after dark. They've got top notch service & fine facilities. Having the best time ever, was a breeze. There's a hilltop view and a petting zoo. Try the perfect pool & the nature walk too. Horse shoes, playground, super soap slide, Ice cream, mini golf, and wagon rides. Tap your toe at the Open Mic Show. Sing Karaoke and, before you go. Meet friends and party at the weekend dance. Make a plan now. Don't miss your chance! No extra charge for all that fun! The owners take great care of everyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Needed overnight stop over, my rig is "big rig" 38' plus toad. When I registered I asked the person at the desk to look at my rig and let me know if it was too big, they said no. Getting into the site was very difficult, barely was able to swing some turns, cars parked everywhere, Getting out was another matter, the only exit was through a road that was barely wide enough for the rig, with lots of branches hanging into the roadway. This resulted in a series of deep scratches along the passenger side of the motorhome. The site they put me into was new, it had rained the previous day and the place was like a mud hole. It was hot, we turned on our A/C, I checked the incoming voltage, is was barely 100 volts, the unit kicked out and we disconnected for fear it might damage other components. Radios blasted well into the evening, and fireworks set off. On the positive side the park looked like the perfect "kids" facility. Pool, water slide, games and plenty of room to play. Families seemed to be having a great time. My recommendation, if your looking for a site for overnight, don't, especially if your rig is more than 34 feet. And make sure you check the voltage! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love this campground!! Lots of things for kids to do. Nice big open area in middle of campground for kids to play. Kids love the soap slide and animal barn. Very friendly staff and campers here. Great market just 5 minutes down the road. One to go to every year! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice campground out in the country. Lots of activities for kids. Easy access to campsites. No broadcast TV services or cable. Our DirecTV satellite dish would not work at this location. Wi-Fi did not work while we were here either. Very friendly and helpful office staff. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites here are big rig friendly. It was raining hard but the gravel roads and gravel sites drained well, unlike Scotia Pines. The pull through sites are not level. Why is it they can't grade a level site when they construct these parks. The wifi is free and fairly fast when it is on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First, the directions in the Trailer Life RV Park guide are misleading - it's hard to tell "eastbound" when the road (Rte 4)runs north and south. The bath facilities need to be cleaner...the layer of mildew in the shower was unacceptable. The park seems OK - a lot of seasonals stay there, it appears. Our biggest complaint was being parked at the eastern edge of the rather empty park (nearest Rte 4) - across the street is a large wood processing center that runs 24 hrs a day, judging by the noise level all night long. A site closer to the center or opposite end should be quieter? We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly & helpful staff. WiFi is available for a charge. At our site could not get satellite to work because of trees. A lot of seasonal campers with trailers permanently on site. They do have a pull through area for short term RVs. The truck stop within a couple of miles at the interstate had a great cafe. This is a Good Sam park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice and clean , well managed . Super friendly staff and owners. Lots for children to do, very community orientated. Clean sites, nice walking areas. Quiet time enforced. Enjoyed our stay. It was our first camp and had lots of help from owner. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
