Overall Rating:

Lovely park. Utilities are new. Very long back in on new gravel. Heavily shaded, spacious, very private. Limited bugs, but stay off trail to beach! Many of the sites with utilities will accommodate big rigs despite what the reservation site says, but most of the pull thru sites bend sharply. You may have to back in to most of them if you are over 40'. Very good showers. No ATT, no OTA. Malagash Salt Mine Museum is a small gem. The Chowder House in Tatamagouche is very good. Tatamagouche Brewery is very pleasant but the beer is just so-so. Food and wine shopping at the Co-op in Malagash and the Foodland in Tatamagouche. Major shopping in Amherst, ~35 miles. We camped at Amherst Shore Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Avoid the beach trail at the park! Go to Northport Beach Park about 3 miles east. Great dog walking there, too. Malagash Salt Mine Museum is a small gem. The Chowder House in Tatamagouche is very good. Tatamagouche Brewery is very pleasant but the beer is just so-so. Food and wine shopping at the Co-op in Malagash and the Foodland in Tatamagouche. Major shopping in Amherst, ~35 miles.

$ are Canadian $. Camped in September and only a few sites were occupied. Sandy site, fairly big, with fire pit and picnic table. Internet available free at gatehouse (password required). Camp host were very kind to give information. Washroom and showers are very clean. Will camp again if we stop by. One of the very few good camping in Nova Scotia. We camped at Amherst Shore Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.
