This is the BEST private campground we have seen to date in Canada! The facilities are superb, modern, clean and in full working order. The views of the Bay of Fundy are incredible. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have gone out of their way to have information about local attractions readily available. Wi-Fi worked at our site (oceanfront and pretty far from the office) but speed was slow on occasions (but still perfectly usable for web surfing and emails, not movie streaming). The sites are close together as is typical in private campgrounds but when we were here (Labor Day Weekend) the campground was at least half empty so we had several sites between us and the neighbors. The rates for the oceanfront sites are about $10 to $15/day higher than for sites at other inland campgrounds with no ocean views. But if you want a million dollar view of the Bay of Fundy, this is one of the best values for oceanfront camping in North America. Our daily rate (converted to US $) for an oceanfront site reflects a 10% discount for a one week stay. The campground is very close to Annapolis Royal (just over the mountain.) We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Terrific campground! Highly recommended! The only reason why we scored this a 9 out of 10 is because there is very limited sites with trees. We elected the obstructed view site to save a little money and that only meant that you were across the road from the sites that were on the edge of the ocean. Check-in was easy and the office staff was fantastic. All sites are grass and the pedestal provided sufficient electricity and water. Wi-Fi was available at your site, although bandwidth seems to be an issue. Although we experienced a significant rainfall, the campground drains very well and we did not experience any issues. We would definitely return to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites range from 49 to 99 a night. We chose 99 so we were right on the bay. To us well worth the money but all site have a great view of the bay. Friendly very very clean. We stayed five nights and could not find one negative. We will be back. Highly recommend. Annopolis is right down the road and a wonderful cute town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are only giving this a 5 and that is because of the view otherwise when it rains your site gets flooded. We have a 34ft motorhome and we had to move around to different sites 4 times before we could finally fit on a site. You would figure that they should know how long each site is, but apparently they don't. The WiFi is not always good. Hookups were easily accessible. The wind off the ocean can be unpleasant in September so please keep that in mind. In the summer you would welcome the breeze, but in Sept it was a very strong wind wherein which we brought in the slideout's at night because that is how windy it was. Site pricing was confusing. Also, they put a sticker on the windshield of your car (we tow a car) that is a heck of a time removing it. A sharp turn getting into this park when towing a vehicle behind. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have not stayed in every campground in the world, but The Cove must be one of the most beautiful campground sites extant. It is located on a verdant rolling vista overlooking the Bay of Fundy, where the constant sea breeze and tidal action make every moment feel refreshing. The Cove has some regular amenities: small but nice pool with changing areas, rec room, laundry, bathrooms and showers (did not use), kids' playground. But the main attraction is the location and view. The maintenance is exceptional but the office people are not particularly helpful. There is plenty of gorgeous space to walk your dog. We were here on a picture-perfect summer weekend and the place was only a third full - I think it must be overpriced by Nova Scotia standards. For anyone who appreciates scenery, this is a "10". We camped here in a Motorhome.
We paid $49 here for a first row premium spot. The restrooms were to far up the hill to try to use from our site. and the Wi-Fi barely made the distance. For $49 we basically got a really nice view in a wide open camping area where there is no privacy, shade etc. The drive up and over the hill here was memorable, luckily my diesel has power to spare and good brakes for the down side. We would probably not stay here again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Very nice park. Very nice view. Used the laundry; very pricey, but did the job. Very bare park, no trees in RV area. The park leaves huge overhead street lights on all night; no watching the stars here! We had to close our blackout curtains to sleep. Everything costs here; but we did not use anything but the laundry. We were one of only two RVs due to the lateness of the season. Due to the nickel and dime attitude, we'd likely not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had one of the prettiest views we have stayed at over looking the Bay of Fundy. Booked a month ago over the phone for one night but planned to stay a week. The rate quoted was $96.50 for an oversized Ocean Front site. When we got here our bill for the first night was $127.00 including recycling fee, reservation fee and sales tax plus they wanted $8.00 hour for early check-in. (I ran down the owner on the property and he waived the $20.00 early check-in fee). This could be a great campground if they did not ring the cash register on guests so much. I would rank the place a 9 or 10 if they did not try to take advantage because it has a great view and a quiet location. They have a fresh fish market next to the harbor selling live lobsters, haddock and fresh scallops. Scallops were great for dinner. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was probably the prettiest of the 8 campgrounds we stayed at on this trip so far. The view was spectacular. It was wonderful. It was well maintained, with great facilities and impeccably maintained floral/landscaping areas. But... The campground was relatively empty. If the motorhome/trailer section would have been at even 1/2 capacity, it would be tight. The office staff was pleasant but distant. We didn't really feel welcome. It felt like a business transaction. It was the most expensive campsite we stayed at (by far). They charge a fee to use credit cards (2.75%) on top of the 3% we pay to use a CC from the US. When we paid with US cash, they gave an unfair exchange rate. It should have been close to 0.96, but they gave us 0.90. I kept thinking that if they charged less, they might have more business. We would likely stay here again, but are really torn over the cost. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are pleased with the facility and love our site. If the facility were full it would be really crowded with rigs very close together. It is well maintained. They do not have trash pick up at your site. With our slide and awning both out we are encroaching on the next sites, however they were not occupied when we arrived. The facility is somewhat expensive for the offering with the exception of the water front sites; the view is great. Only 4 of the 17 waterfront sites are occupied when we arrived. The second day a MH parked next to us, there is about three feet between the slides. The laundry room is small, just two machines, dryers take forever to dry, but clean. There are fees attached to the extras such as showers and WI-FI. The WI-FI works well. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Greedy money grab. Sites are extremely overpriced and extremely small.- awnings would touch the RV next to you. The only campground in NS that charges an additional $1.00/ night recycling fee- another fee added to the already overpriced fee. If you arrive earlier than the 1pm check in time they will charge you $3.00/ hr untill 1pm is reached. The campground is on an open field, the so called oversized sites - for bus RVs- will cost $100/ night- this would be considered a normal sized site at most campgrounds. Most campgrounds charge around $29 to $31 for this type of site. For kids, they charge $9.00/ hr for playing pool. Basically a nickel and dime you to death campground. They have an unwritten no refund policy- If you have paid for a week and you have decided to move on to a different location after a few days- They will not refund you the remaining days- regardless of any reason. There is a $7.00 reservation fee that is not mentioned when reserving over the phone- and you are actually talking to the campground owner! If you cancel the reservation- within 48 hrs- you will lose one nights camping fees- (understandable) but they will also charge you for the length of stay you were reserved for regardless- no exceptions- This is criminal. There are many nicer campgrounds in this location and higly recommend to anyone not to stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 8 / 10 ]
The daily rate we paid reflects an ocean front site with an unrestricted view. Sites are grassy and well manicured. We found the 30 amp power somewhat marginal and the water pressure on the low side. Our site was 27' wide. Park would feel somewhat crowded if full. There is not too much to do around here other than the quaint village of Annapolis Royal. Digby is 30 miles away. The pool and facilities are clean and orderly. WiFi was good at our site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the very best campgrounds with exceptional views. No 50 amp and weak 30 amp was a major drawback for us. Had to run the generator just to use the cooktop. Excellent sites available, but pricey. Great tent facilities as well. Very good management and facility was exceptionally well kept. Get good 50 amp power and this place would merit a 10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The new owners have made many changes that have greatly improved the park. (We last stayed here seven years ago). Unfortunately some of them are irritating. They have a fee for most everything; $7.50 for making a reservation, $.25 for six minutes worth of water in the shower. Our site was huge and that is one of the reasons for the high price. View was incredible and the park was spotlessly clean. This was a great base for seeing the Southern part of Nova Scotia. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. We opted for an ocean front site overlooking the Bay of Fundy. Gorgeous view! The folks in the office are very helpful with local tourist info and know about campgrounds in many other areas of Nova Scotia as well. As an added bonus, there's a lobster pound just outside the gates for a shore front lobster picnic! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean campground on the Bay of Fundy. "What a view". Sites a little short on the 1st and 2nd level. A little off the beaten path to get to, but manageable for my 35' 5th wheel. WiFi ($5 per day charge) only works around office, and Rec Hall. Lobster Boats dock right beside the campground and a great Fresh Seafood Market next door!! Short drive to Annapolis Royal, Digby, and sites in that area! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
