9 Parks near Grand Pre, Nova Scotia
Aug 2016 - $39.00
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

In typical Maritime fashion, we were met warmly. Arriving on a weekend, the campground was packed though quiet in the evening. The sites were very close together and mainly for this reason, we felt the park was overpriced. We were grateful to receive Passport America rate for weeknights. The location is easy to access. The sites are level gravel. WiFi was good. Showers cost $1.00! - rvbravo2

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

Rate shown for 30 amp site. Our site was a gravel and grass pull-through that required leveling. All hookups worked fine. There was enough room between the pull-through sites, but no privacy. Our table was next to our neighbours sewer outlet. However, this is a large park and some of the back-in sites nearby had more privacy. Lots of mature trees and a couple of trails off both A and B loops. Garbage had to be taken to the front of the campground near the entrance. No cable TV, but found 1 digital channel off the antenna. Wi-Fi worked well enough for e-mail and browsing. We would come here again if in the area. - Onemoretrail

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

Stayed over long weekend July 31 -August 3. Not impressed. Washrooms were not clean by pool, mud was left there from day before and was not restocked. Understaffed for the amount of campers there. They advertise theme weekends but are not run well because of lack of staff. A lot of extra costs there including pay showers. It was a busy weekend but I have to report the pool was very dirty on the first day we arrived and it was not cleaned for the entire weekend. There is a stench of sewer around the pool and near the games arcade daily. There are many seasonal sites, but most sites are jammed in rows. Picnic table was rotten and we couldn't use it. Probably will not return. Disappointing as we had heard good things. Was not worth the $47 +tax per night. - Famoffive

They pride themselves on their clean washrooms, but that's where the perks end. This is an over-priced park with nothing for the kids. They have a jumping pillow and slip slide but rarely willing to turn them on. What's the point ? Waste of money in my opinion. - Caper1973
Jul 2010 - $43.00
Sites were relatively level, but because they were not completely grassed there was a lot of dirt tracked into the trailer. The picnic tables were old and there were a lot of ants. They have some great concepts but some things require maintenance. The little wading pool was filthy and I would not let my toddler in it. The campground is quiet and the people friendly. - RiverStone

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

Beautiful ocean view. Sites were level. No sewer, but dump site was very accessible on the way out. Quiet and comfortable. Fire pits and private. Water smelled so could only wash dishes, would not even try to shower. Talked to other campers on other side of campground and they said their water was fine. Had to back in to site but was easy enough, lots of room. Overall a very nice campground. We would camp there again. - B G

We stayed with 3 other rigs over the Victoria Day weekend. This is a friendly campground and check in was easy. There are a number of seasonal sites, but they seem to have left the best ones for visitors. We had a good end site, with an unobstructed view of the Bay and a large grassy area in front of us. The site was of a decent size, although some were smaller, with a grassy surface. We did not use the washrooms but others in our group did and commented that they needed renovation. We could not get the WiFi at our site, although I understand it was accessible closer to the office and entrance. A nice place to stay. - The Pulfs

Friendly park. New campsites overlooking Bay of Fundy. Awesome views. Some seasonals, but well kept sites, even gardens. Close to Parrsboro and best seafood restaurant on the shore. Will stay again. - ORNS

At the time of the writing of this review the park is undergoing the final stage (hopefully) of a 2-year re-development. Unfortunately, the planned addition of EW sites was one of the victims of recent provincial budget cuts.
This is a lovely Provincial campground and staff do an excellent job of maintaining the grounds and keeping the washrooms very clean. The entry road into the campground has been re-surfaced, so unlike many provincial parks, it is a smooth drive in. With the exception of the road to the day use area, the interior roads are gravel and in good condition. Sites in loop B (#45-84) tend to be on the smaller side and best for Class B, C, popups and tents. Loop A & C will be able to accommodate larger rigs. All sites are unserviced but there are pit toilets and water spigots throughout the campground. As well, there is a washroom with free hot water showers, flush toilets, and electric outlets. All sites include a picnic table and firepit. Firewood ($) and ice ($) are available. There is cell phone coverage throughout the park for those with Aliant (Bell), but apparently Rogers customers do not have coverage. Supposedly there is free WiFi at the office but it was not operational during our stay.
There are three trails within the park as well as great clam digging on the shore in the day use area. There is a dump station, however, because of the type of fitting at the end of the hose, black tank flushes are not possible. - driftdiver1

There are possibilities to get sites with limited water view. Has nice surroundings but sites are a little rough but should not scare you away. - nto

Nice basic provincial park. The access to the Bay of Fundy tidal flats is the big attraction. Recent renovations on the top half now provide better sites for RV's than in the past. - robvann

If it hadn't been for the Bay of Fundy and Tides we probably would have stayed at the Provincial Campground. As mentioned, the view of the bay was absolutely awesome.
The new owner most likely has numerous projects for upgrades but seems he was just getting started.
Our site provided a beautiful full view of the bay and enjoyed waking to this each morning.
As mentioned - grocery stores not close by.
Washrooms/showers/laundry in need of some real TLC
As campers came and went, there was no staff checking or cleaning the sites - thanks goodness for thoughtful campers. - Officer Bobby

From your campsite, a huge expanse of Bay of Fundy mud flats opens up as the tide falls. Few can resist walking in the mud, which is thick enough to suck off shoes. The secret to easy movement is to walk in the stream beds that form as low tide approaches. Most sites have good views, but trees encroach beginning with front row spots above #15. There's a new owner and pets are now allowed. - Mtmoi

Ocean view was excellent. Nice, comfortable and quiet campground. Full facilities. Pool, fire pit, showers, and toilets. Very friendly owners. Some amenities nearby. We would stay there again.
Beautiful and pleasant campground. Although a little on the pricey side, still worth it. - B G
