8 RV Parks near Brooklyn, Nova Scotia
Jul 2015 - $26.00
This is one of the seven self-registration campgrounds in Nova Scotia, which means that there are minimal staff on site, primarily for maintenance purposes. This means there are few, if any staff run activities at this park. However, this campground participates in the campground host program, so hosts are available to assist and answer campers questions. While reservations can be made online, onsite self registration is easy with a free 'yellow' phone at the park entrance that connects you to a reservation clerk. There is no reservation fee for onsite reservations.
Cell phone coverage within the park is almost non-existent, though you may be able to get a signal at the entrance to the park. There also is a payphone and spotty Internet access at the entrance at the park entrance. All sites are unserviced, with most sites being grass covered and quite large. There is a dump station with a hose for black tank flushes and there are water spigots throughout the park for filling your fresh water tank. The campground tends to fill-up on weekends but during the weekdays that we were there in mid-July, there were only half a dozen other campers. There is a clean washroom with free hot showers and a dishwashing station.
There is a day use picnic area near the entrance to the park, but separate from the campground.
The nearby town of Windsor has all the services you might need. A short distance from the campground on NS 14 there is a gas station that sells diesel, has a NS liquor outlet, and small convenience store. Good luck trying to enter the address of the campground into your GPS as there are two Brooklyn's in Nova Scotia. Ask for directions when making your reservation. - driftdiver1

We stayed here for one night. The sites were very spacious. The washrooms were kept exceptionally clean. There were only 5 campers registered for the night we were here, which we found a little too quiet. We moved on the next day. The park really is quite nice, I don't know why it isn't more popular. - Rockwood

We tented on site 58 for 2 nights. during the week, this park is VERY quiet with not many campers, however as Friday came the park filled up. Due to large sites, you did not feel crowded and still managed to enjoy yourself. We opted for an open site, there are many water spigots to fill up or get dishes done. RV's might need to "rough it" however, the park is worth it for privacy & sound Spotty GSM cell reception, satellite radio was no problem. - thecyr

The park is run by incredibly accommodating older couple. It is good enough to stay while exploring the area. The buildings are a little old but they are clean. They are still building this business up. 5 minute walk to the ocean. - ItsAllGood

The staff was excellent and the sites are level, gravel lots with some shade depending on your location...as with most KOA's the sites are close but not too bad....the roads are narrow but manageable with our 36' with toad, watch out for the children and people walking....all services worked well, ATT signal was fine and we used our hotspots for wifi, although their wifi was ok at times....only got 2 channels with our antenna....the showers, restrooms and laundry were all clean with plenty of hot water....once again this is a very family oriented park with a lot for the kids to do...this campground is a great location for visiting the Halifax area....we would stay here again..... - smoky40

Okay KOA. It is extremely busy in the summer with RV rentals and boat/bike rentals so it can be tight getting in and out. Level gravel 30/50 amp full hook up sites available. They only have WIFI at the office. Most Canadian campgrounds have good WIFI at each site. A couple of local channels and good cell reception. About 35 minutes from downtown Halifax. - teepee51

Not very much curb appeal. Garbage overflowing. Equipment and pallets laying around. Seasonal or long term people have very messy sites. And horrible wifi. Either wouldn't work or didn't work. And big rocks on edges of sites. Saw 3 people hit them trying to pull out of their sites. - sverme

Campsites are close but very acceptable. The grounds are well kept. I noticed that there were about 60% of the occupants were seasonal. The only excess noise we experienced were motorcycles. I really did not appreciate pay showers after paying for our campground. We can tell you that from our site we were able to get Dish satellite tv. - morrison

Definitely family oriented, many children but so very quiet overnight, and grounds are kept very clean. Many residents gather in the evening for congenial campfire chats. 50 amp service and WiFi were both slightly overpowered at peak times, but a surge protector is invaluable in these situations when everyone needs A/C. Wonderful location as tour base. - B and B

Park is mostly catering to seasonal campers. The campsites for daily/weekly campers are varying in size. Don't bother asking which site or trying to reserve a site they will not tell you. Section B where we stayed is best suited for small trailers in the range of Popup campers or at the most a 19 to 23 foot trailer. The owners were putting 32 foot motor homes and 32 foot fifth wheels in spots not big enough to get in. I don't know what the travelers would have done if we had not been at our site to move our vehicles or guide them in. Fire pits are a few feet from your RV when you do get it in so you have no chance of enjoying all the amenities of camping. If you plan on staying connected to the electronic world while you are here do no rely on their "free internet" it is impossible to get on or stay connected to it. As for Television, there are 2 local digital channels available. We experienced issues with the power box tripping with only the AC and one other electrical appliance plugged in. My fifth wheel was drawing less than 20-25 amps at the time.
Our first stay here more than 10 years ago was much more accommodating and this will probably be the last time we go here. - Andrew Hampson

We have stayed here a number of times, we liked it because it was close to home, people seemed friendly and the kids loved the river and there is a golf course that my husband could enjoy to practice, it is not a golf course for the golf lover more of a learning course. This year to our surprise things have drastically gone down hill and the warnings we had received (from previous seasonals)of the owner or front desk lady Brenda finally showed her true colors. Bathrooms have become scummy, showers freezing cold and brown, pool run down and grimy with a not so friendly young attendant to mandate the rules, outdated crafts and activities for children, always doing construction which i realize has to be done, but really on a busy long weekend?? they say they have wake bording? really? when? and not to mention the grass is so long that we borrowed one from a seasonal camper, oh and lots of Ticks! I was highly insulted on our last trip due to the fact that we had visitors come to our lot, camp for the day and decided to stay for the night, so needless to say we forgot to pay the fee right away we were caught up in the moment of camping bliss, to have the owner or whoever she claims to be at the time Brenda, drive over and call us out on the fee we were to pay 5.00! So we told her we would be over, she was very rude upon our arrival to the OFFICE and told us that we had snuck our friends in, over the bridge and told us that we were trying to pull the wool over her eyes and get away with not paying...Really over 5.00 and us being what we could see as the last of her weekend costumers because the campground is usually not to capacity by any means, and after yelling at my pregnant sister inlaw over her right to receive a military discount! needless to say it is a shame that we will not be back! Sorry Renfrew Customer Service again at its finest! - rosesas

A large very nice park on the outskirts of Halifax. I think the photos on their website are a bit deceptive, especially the one showing the restroom / showers. There are no doors going into the the buildings. Disappointing. We were here during the Labour Day weekend and the placed was pretty much full. We had a fairly level back-in site with trees on either side of us. Our sewer was "up hill" from our camper. Electric (30-AMP) was a bit on the weak side but understandable with the park being full for the holiday weekend. Same with water pressure. All utilities easily accessible. We arrived well before check-in time and the staff were very courteous to us, allowing us to park near the laundry (we we used $2 to wash, $2 to dry, 40 minutes) until our site was available. Very good Wi-Fi. 2 OTA TV channels. Didn't use the pool. Interior gravel roads easy to navigate. - thetravelkids

Staff very unfriendly, acted like they really didn't want to be bothered. Site was back to back, small trees on each side of us - not quite big enough yet to block other campers, will probably have to be cut back as they grow because of space issues. Hookups were ok - not great. Water pressure low. A lot of "permanent" campers. We would not stay here again. - dtfoster

Aug 2017 Handy location to Halifax, large park with some secluded sites, near level gravel/dirt pads, picnic table and fire ring. FHU. Toilets/showers could use an upgrade as fairly primitive. Wifi non-existent when park full otherwise fair. 2 TV channels. Staff guide you to site. ours was a back in, back to back site. - flexitdriver

Very nice campground, wooded and nice sites. Staff very helpful and friendly. Well kept up. Bathrooms were clean but dated. Laundry facilities were clean, but washers and dryers are small. No cable. Very good water pressure. - dtfoster

We stayed in this park for a month, Aug-Sept 2016, while visiting family nearby. It is a nice, lovely wooded, quiet park, with easy access to the HWY 101 and Rte 1.
We have a 35ft. Motorhome with tow dolly and had plenty of room to navigate the roads and our lot. The lots are nice sized with picnic tables and firepits. There is a decent playground and pool.
The owner is very nice and easy going. He keeps the park and the pool very clean.
The few permanent residents all have respectable, well maintained homes.
There is a very nice, short, deeply wooded, nature trail following a creek with small falls over mossy boulders which we enjoyed very much.
The laundry room has 2 washers and dryers, $2/$1.5o for 45 mins., only offering cold water wash. This is the only thing we didn't like about the park. We highly recommend this nice park and will stay again when in the area. - Jo and Bob

Located a short distance from the Highway, it is a heavily wooded campground. The access is down a short steep hill. Obviously most sites are seasonals. We had a back-in full service site that was easy to access for our 60' combined length. Lots of trees though, so take the corners easy and make sure you position the rig to miss the trees on the inside corner, especially at the far end. The site was level and services were well located and good quality. Interior roads are gravel and are OK, but have seen lots better. Not a bad campground, but rather rich for what they offer. Don't think we would return, unless the price dropped to a level commensurate with the quality. - Oriana

This is a very nice Provincial Park with fantastic views! There are trails down to view the beach during low tide and the tide fluxuates 40+/- feet twice each day. The hill going up to the campground is very steep so you need a good head start if pulling a heavy RV. They have wooded sites as well as open meadow sites. We were in site #74 which had an amazing view and I think it was the best in the park. Site #74 is supposed to accommodate an RV up to 30 feet long but you could easily put a larger one on it as long as you park parallel to the road. The only problem with this site is that it can get very windy up there, but the view is one you will not forget. Very nice folks run the park and the campground is very quiet and well maintained. The roads leading to the park are very rough but if you like "dry camping" and are in this area you should really try it out. I gave it a 9 only because the trails needed some attention but that could have been because we were there early in the season. - troutslayer
