Rate is in Canadian Dollars. Jammed in like sardines up against other RVs. RVs are parked back to back and side to side. No room to extend awning, barely enough room for the slides. Fire pit and picnic table right up against the RV. 30 Amp service but no circuit breaker, full hook-up, no cable with 3 OTA TV channels. Utilities are at the back of the RV, extra hose and electric cord required. The laundry is closed until further notice. Verizon cell service is 3 bar/4G. WiFi is weak, intermittent and unsecured. There's a about 50% long term residents. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice and clean, lots of trees but enough room; many pull-throughs. Enjoyed walking through the campground. Half hour from Halifax, just on the edge of suburbs. We didn't learn that there had been a boil alert until two days later; sign on bathroom, which we don't use. I feel the park should have notified us. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

The sites vary greatly, so if you want some space and shade, request it when you make your reservation. Some sites were close together with no shade. We were in site 11, and although it was only 30 amp, there are trees on both sides, so we didn't need to run both ACs despite the temps being high. Nice dog walking path behind the campground that you access thru site 45. Didn't use any amenities. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

We drove into town and parked to the side of the Citadel and after touring it, walked down to the waterfront. Don't miss the Public Gardens! They are very close to the parking lot. If you are coming from the US, bring your own bottled water. There is a 10 cent deposit on every bottle! 15% tax on everything too, so if you don't like to tip on tax, pay attention to your receipt.

I don't understand some of the other reviews. This is a fine, family owed campground. Ok it's not a 10 but anyplace that has modern clean bathrooms, wifi that works, level sites etc. is fine with us. Woodhaven is about 8 miles from downtown Halifax where there is lots to see and do. Many attractions and lots of restaurant choices. Home Depot, Walmart and Costco about 5 miles away so all good. We would come back if in the area again. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

If you have a big rig, and particularly if you also tow a garage, this is an excellent choice for you. Sites for large rigs are pull throughs with plenty of space for your tow vehicle. Be aware that leveling may take some jockeying, but the sites are plenty big to allow for that. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

Well laid-out with both open sites and others in the trees. We chose to save $5/nite with 30amp in open pull-thru section for satellite reception. Some of the best maintained dirt/gravel roads we've seen. Superb WiFi. about 40psi on their well water--tastes fine too. Nice folks in the office. Worked out to US$40/nite. Note: check-in time is 2 pm so they can mow the site. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

We had an excellent site right by the washrooms, laundry and office. The employees are very pleasant. The laundry room was great with several washers and dryers. The washrooms were clean, a little dated, but otherwise was great. Our wifi was perfect. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Travel Trailer.

Go to Peggy's Cove, it is the best of anything to visit. If you go to Lunenburg eat at Grand Banker Bar and Grill, outstanding seafood with harbor view. Anywhere you go, go early and avoid some of the crowds.

This is our 2nd time at this park. Very convenient to Halifax and the Peggy's Cove area. Park is well organized and easy to navigate. This year we were in 2 way sites near the office and the power was a little low, as was the water pressure, but this may be due to the park being pretty full due to Canada Day weekend. Wifi worked OK and staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed here in a motorhome and would stay here again. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

We called to inquire about reservations for later in the day and was told there were plenty of sites and no information other than our name was required. The young man at checking was friendly and efficient and we had a site with a swipe of the credit card and a map with directions to a FHU pull through that was screened from other campers by the trees. Until driving around in the campground, we had no idea how how larger this place is. Access and interior roads are dirt in good shape. It located back in the woods of a residential/commercial street. The campground appeared to be about 75% full and the WiFi was the best we have encountered in several months. 2 local OTA stations from Halifax came in good. Woodhaven is within reasonable driving distance to downtown Halifax and Peggy's Cove. We would definitely return here should we come this way again. Traffic noise was mostly muted by the trees.

Peggy's Cove has many tourist busses pouring in each day. The site remains beautiful and the wave action is amazing on a day with a good breeze. Don't overlook the Fisherman's Memorial across the street from the visitor's center and the Flight 111 Memorial just off Rt 333 in nearby Indian Harbor. Visit the Citadel in Halifax before noon to witness the noon gun. Inquire about parking before going and plan on a bit of walking uphill. Local tours drop off and pickup visitors at the only entrance.

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. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

Eat at The Bicycle Thief in Halifax - so good and right on the waterfront. Walk around the waterfront- a lot to see and do. Visit Halifax Citadel- very interesting fort, with great tour guides inside the fort. Also, visit Peggys Cove, Lunenburg, and definitely Mahone Bay.

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. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

First site we were put in had unlevel gravel, narrow space that would not let my main slide out without hitting trees, and then we got a more spacious site that we had to move a couple of times to get level.

Utilities are a problem here. Wifi sucks. Water pressure is inadequate much of the time, electric is fine but primitive with no breakers. Sewers have no threaded connection. The bathrooms are old and decrepit and I wouldn't get in the showers. Round seats on oval toilets. The pool is small for the size of the park and the tiles need a good cleaning.

Best word is adequate with a great location. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

So many things to do in Halifax area. Peggy's cove is only 1/2 hour away and the whole coast road: Chester, Mahone Bay and Lunenberg is beautiful to see. Keep going on past if you don't like the crowds!

Vernons diner just up the road serves a good home cooked meal: get there early. Had an excellent meal at Szechuan Chinese Restaurant going in the other direction where there is also an excellent Sobey's for provisioning. (Bedford)

Rate of $47.00 includes tax for full hookups, not all sites are full hookups. Entrance to the park is via a long gravel/dirt private drive up to the top of a hill. We have stayed here twice in the last 30 days, 3 nights first stay and 4 nights second stay. Park has, in my opinion, two sections, the older mature section with trees and some privacy and an open section, section/row H. First stay we were in row H, very unlevel, front wheels off the ground and steps very high. Second stay we requested a more level site with a satellite view, were placed in site C-7, much better, liked it. Park has wide single lane gravel roads with all sites having a gravel pad with grass. We did not have any trouble navigating through the park, but could be tight in some areas. Most sites are back to back and not overly long. Width is adequate for slide outs and awning use and still leave room to comfortably be outside. Utilities were at the back of the site and ours worked well, no problem with the water, sewer or electric. Most sites had a picnic table and fire ring. Appears a large percentage of the park is for seasonal campers. Bathrooms/showers are in a cinder block building with a tile floor. The shower stalls are cinder block with curtains. Appeared somewhat clean, however the building is very worn, dingy, in need of some upgrades - not at all appealing. Facility has a decent pool area in front of the office. The owners were very friendly and happily accommodated our requests for our return visit. This is a busy full park during summer weekends. Verizon, Sprint and T Mobile all worked well. Did not try/use park WIFI or over the air antenna. About a 20 - 25 minute drive to downtown Halifax. Note - if you use the parking meters and Parallel Park, make sure your tires are no further than 150 MM (less than 6 inches) from the curb. They will write you a ticket, $25.00. We would return here if in the area. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.

This is a large campground with lots of caravans coming through, so make reservations in advance. Our site was long enough for our 44 foot rig and towed. The site was FHU 50amp and the electric was stable. Our only issue was the water pressure fluctuated wildly and we had to use the water pump to maintain a good pressure. Our site was separated from both our neighbors by a narrow stand of pines, which provided privacy, but did not interfere with setting up. The site was very level and was easy to get into and out of. All the staff there were extremely friendly and helpful. Our stay was very quiet and the traffic sparse until a caravan came in and then the dust and traffic escalated. We will definitely stay here again on our way home. We camped at Woodhaven RV Park of Halifax in a Motorhome.
