5 RV Parks near Lower Five Islands, Nova Scotia
Aug 2018 - $39.00
This park is under new ownership. New sites are being added. We had an older waterfront site so only 30 amp which was weak. View was wonderful. Hookups at the rear of site. Wifi was good most of the time. Get code at office per device. Able to locate Direct TV satellite. Had a concern about branches on a tree on exit road. Owner took care of trimming immediately. An escort to site would have been nice but with the explanation and view from the office window, we located where we were heading. - Himie

Great park with a breathtaking view, second year in a row and will be back next year as well. For anyone who wants to dig for clams you can't find a better part of the province to do so. Nice little bakery 4 k from park and you can fish for stripped bass from shore. Bait shop within 3 k from park. - Earl Lovett

This was the fourth stay we have had at Five Islands Ocean Resort. We love here. The views are spectacular and there is lots to do in the area. Our 1st stay was just when the ownership was changing and the new owner is very hospitable and accommodating. He is investing in the property and making great improvements. Last stay was with 6 others RVs (family and friends) we had the ocean view sites which were large enough for our rigs and the sites were level. WiFi is free and and we were able to get it at our site. We got 2 tv channels clear. The road in from Delbert is scenic but narrow- take your time and enjoy the drive. We'll be back for sure. - Dave66

Price is in Canadian dollars, includes campsite fee of $35.60 and $9 reservation fee. Campground is on a hill that overlooks Minas Basin, beautiful to watch the Fundy tide changes. 20/30 Amp power and water (low 20 PSI). One dump site at the campground exit. Firewood and ice available at office. WiFi is mentioned at office but doesn't exist in the campground. Verizon cell service was 3 bar/4G. No cable, 2 OTA TV channels. - Bburgbrewer
Oct 2017 - $29.00
Senior discount for four nights. Site was pull through, gravel, mostly level, water and electric with 30 amp. Verizon cell and internet reception was weak. DishTV reception was good. The park was very quiet at night. Our site had a very good sunset view of the bay. This park is a good location for observing the Fundy Tides. The park is about a 45 minute drive from major highways. The entrance road is newly paved, but does have low branches. The campground road is gravel and hilly, but we easily maneuvered with our 33' motorhome and toad. The park has 16 electric (30amp)/water sites, and has plans to add electric to additional sites. We would stay here again. - Dave51

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

A funky, older municipal campground, with an incredible, world-class view of the Bay of Fundy and easy access to the pebble beach and tide line. They don't take US credit cards or checks, so bring Canadian cash. We didn't have enough so we paid a bit in US $ as well. The manager is helpful. There are a lot of seasonal spots, but (as mentioned in other reviews) they save some very nice ones for visitors. We were in site 15, which had a spectacular view, and pulled you in so that your door faced the view. The road to the campground from Parrsboro is not for the faint hearted. - ShoreXplorers

Site 15 facing the Bay of Fundy! We could almost see the tide move in and out. Easy access to the tide line. Kind of a funky, old county park. The same guy has run the place for over 20 years, and he's a character. Most of the sites are seasonal, most well kept. They have set aside several sites for visitors with larger rigs. Everyone was friendly. Lots of family tenting groups on the weekends. Lots of kids then, too. Pit toilets. No laundry. There are showers but I didn't use them. Only a few sites will fit big rigs. Getting out of site 15 was "interesting" with our 43' coach; I'm glad it was dry. Excellent dog walking on huge beach when the tide is out. No Wifi; good ATT/Rogers service; the usual four CTV OTA stations. - bobcovey

This is a county park that has a spectacular view and access to the Bay of Fundy. Excellent rating has to do with the site we were assigned as we had an end site with an unobstructed view of the Bay. There are many seasonal campers here but they leave the most desirable spots open for visitors - interesting and appreciated. Hosts were most accommodating when we asked to stay an extra night - didn't want to leave! Electric and Water was good and there is a dump station at the exit. WiFi was inconsistent. Great location to explore the Parrsboro area which is known for its fossils and minerals. Beachcombers paradise. - Breezy2

The rate is in Canadian $. This park is at the end of the road on a 600' bluff overlooking the Minas Basin of the Bay of Fundy and about a 30 minute drive from Hwy 101. The campground is arranged in 2 loops and several of the sites back up to a view of the water. Most sites are barely in view of their neighbors in this very woody area. The interior roads are dirt with a few puddle filled holes and for most rigs is wide enough to clear the branches. Site #1 is enormous and can be used as a pull through while the rest are mostly back-ins. The paved road leading to the park is a narrow winding and sometimes bumpy lane along the farms. The last hill to the entrance station is probably about a 10% grade. Reservations can be made online or via phone. Without reservations, drive through and make a note of which desired sites appear empty and return to the kiosk and use the yellow phone to make a no-fee reservation for the desired site. We were there mid-week after Labor Day and the park was about 10% occupied. Great views of the Basin. There are water spigots near the loops roads and a dump station is near the entrance and can be used in either direction. - Trailbuddy

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

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
