We stopped for the night en route to another destination and inquired about the laundry and the lady at the desk was able to give us a pull through directly across from it which was very handy. About 1/3 of the campground are permanent residents and are in one area to one side. The remainder of the campground is set up for short term guests. Most of the sites are pull throughs in a lightly forested area. I didn't notice any particular road noise although the campground is fairly close to the highway. I would come back if in the area. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Transient sites in both treed or open area. As we were staying during the last week the park was open for the season, we had the place to ourselves. Parked under the section covered in pine trees has its good and bad, unfortunately the pine cones were dropping along with the needles during our stay. The plus is they would provide protective shade in the hot summer months. There are a number of sites for tent camping which are set in the back area of the park, these sites appear to be very generous and private. The park appears to be well kept, staff was busy packing up picnic tables and cleaning up the park for the winter everyday while we were there. The sites are near one another, but with enough space to have awning and outside chairs easily set up. Driving in and out of the park is easily handled without concern for overhead trees as they keep them well trimmed. Hook ups were nearby and worked without incident. WiFi worked well, but given the lack of others in the park that may be our luck. We would stay here again. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

The pull through sites were big, and utilities were good. Antenna reception was pretty good. Nice big pine trees for shade. The staff were great. I did do laundry, but the washers were old and didn't spin the clothes very well. The staff reimbursed me so I could use a different washer to redo the load. One washer said cold water only, but if you don't put the lid down until you are ready to start the load, you don't see it. Dryers worked well. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was perfect, situated under the pines. Owner was very knowledgeable of the area and very friendly. Laundromat was clean and very inexpensive!

Just a few minutes from downtown Truro. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Visit Victoria Gardens and for downtown Truro for shopping. I recommend Sea Shell Designs and Beck and Boosh if you love one of a kind jewelry. And the Engine Room for a delicious and inexpensive lunch.

Rate is for an unserviced site. We needed a to stay for only two nights to see the Tidal Bore and this park is perfectly located. Since the full hookup sites seemed to us to be crowded, dark (heavily treed), and expensive, we chose an unserviced site and loved it. These spacious, reasonably level grass sites are on the edge of the park across from seasonal units, so there is very little park traffic (although the highway noise is quite noticeable). The entire park is very clean and well-maintained, the seasonal units are well-kept and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

Thanks to one of the Scotia Pines staff, we had a great view of the Tidal Bore from the Hwy 236 bridge next to the Fundy Tidal Interpretive Center. Better yet, if you go to the Center 90 minutes before the tide, they'll direct you to spots in South Maitland where you can see the tide go through, then you drive back to the Center to see it again.

We were greeted by an exceptionally friendly person at the front desk. The park was easy to access off the 102 but you can hear the highway noise. The sites were very pretty with trees but crowded. Sites were level with gravel. Wifi was free and good at our site. The laundry facilities were good and not too expensive. Overall, the campground was very tidy and clean. However, although the campground was pleasant we felt it was expensive for what was offered. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a well maintained family oriented campground, with helpful and friendly staff at check in. Interior road is gravel. Our grass site was a level and long pull through with space to park our towed, big rig access was marginal. Fairly quiet with shade trees and a picnic table, there are a lot of seasonal sites but all were neat and tidy. There is a small pool. The bathrooms were dated but clean, however the laundry needed a good clean. A small security gate was used after 10pm. Pet friendly but we did not see any doggie bags or disposal stations. WiFi was only available at sites near the office and satellite was a challenge but cell was good. There was the occasional noise from a train, but it did not worry us. We would stay here again. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Food stores and restaurants are in Truro, which is about 6 miles from the campground.

We came to the area for access to the Bay of Fundy and the Tides. Easy access from Canadian Express road. Close to town but in the country. Lots of long term but transient area is in the pines, hence the name. Spent three nights in pull-through site. Staff helpful with directions and suggestions for the area. Tidal fluctuations were amazing. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a clean rv park but the hookups are side by side so my hookups were on the wrong side of my coach and there was no place to move to so the hookups would be on the correct side. Had to change from a 50 amp to a 30 amp because I did not have a 50 amp extension. Wifi was good as was the power and water. Cable service is also available for $4 per night. Lots of channels but no major sports channels. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay here despite the bad weather from storm Arthur. Crew was very welcoming and made us feel welcome. There are quite a few seasonal units but all worked very well together. Everyone takes good care of their spaces. Our site required a bit of work to get level but we made it and we had enough room. Power initially was very low (30 amp) but came up in a few hours. If you can get the 50A go ahead and do so. We have had that problem in other sites. I have to say the crew works hard to keep the site up and does a good job. During the storm, they went their merry way with daily tasks. I was impressed. It would have been easy just to wait it out. Washrooms were clean but a bit old and could use some face lifting. They were satisfactory. Laundry was the same. As many CGs in Canada, the wash was cold water only. They do have propane but not for big tanks. Wifi was good, and free. Cable was $4/ night and was average at best. I don't know if the weather had any effect upon that. We would certainly stay there again over their competitor reviewed earlier in June though both were fine. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice clean campground with great pull-thru sites of dirt and grass with paved roads in. Hot water in showers are 25 cents for 5 minutes. The pool is clean and nice and cold (not heated). The staff is friendly and helpful. You have to bag your trash in clear bags provided by campground, due to Nova Scotia recycle program. Internet was spotty, but is available at site. Cable TV service was very good. Nice campground, central to many sites. Very close to Tidal Bore area. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

Pay for a 50 amp site! 30 amp is very weak, maybe 20 amps is all you get. Microwave did not run properly the entire stay. Sites are not narrow and plenty long enough. Wi-Fi was very good. Sites are unlevel – we needed blocks. Did not use laundry or showers. No problem with turns or tree limbs for us. Good satellite signal off roof. $36 Good Sam rate. After 3 days of heavy rain, no problem, good drainage. Summer office hours are 10 to 6. We drive a 38' RV and tow a Jeep and we had no trouble navigating the roads or sites. We would stay here again.

Very neat and tidy, quiet campground. We asked for a level site near the showers and got it #78 and it was shady too. Laundry in this building as well. Showers were a little below par for the price and compared to the overall park should be better. Not a single hook in the washroom area to hang a towel or bag up, none in toilet stalls either for purse or bag. So you have to put your stuff on a wet countertop or on the floor. Showers cost 25 cents for hot water, but be careful because the hot water comes out scalding. Parents beware. Wi-Fi very spotty, they have a picnic bench near the office labeled Wi-Fi area, but that's not how we prefer to do it. I would camp here again. We camped at Scotia Pines Campground in a Motorhome.
