Description: As soon as we pulled into this park I was thrilled ~ we are right across the street from a cute little cove. The people in the office are the owners and they were very friendly... The Old guy who bought this park originally sits outside the office everyday and chats with the guest.Amenities: big rig friendly, coin operated laundromat, hot showers, flush toilets, 2-way and 3-way hook-ups, dump station, on an ocean inlet, ice, fireplaces, woods, free Wi-Fi, Modem hook-up and courtesy phone, Picnic tables.
Directions: Follow Hwy 104 to Truro and turn onto Hwy 102. Once past Halifax Stanfield Airport stay on the far right as the road splits (Staying left takes you to Dartmouth, not advised if you are trying to get to us). This will keep you on the 102. Follow this to Halifax and once you pass Costco and Walmart, take the next right to put you on Hwy 103. Go to Exit 5, not 2b. Once to Exit 5, turn left. Travel about 3 kms to the end of the road and turn right at the traffic lights. Drive about 300 metres and turn left at the next set of light to put you on Hwy 333. We are about 15kms down on the left at 10295, which you can count down with the property signs on most driveways.

Favorite Sites: We stayed on site 148 and even though the hook-ups were on the right side of the coach and the sewer on the left ~ our site was so nice. We pulled in and could see the cove across the street... We had plenty of hose and power cords to hook up. They have plenty of sites that are really nice and on the other end there are 5 pull ins that look right into the cove also.
Weather During Stay: We were here for 2 weeks and we had a lot of cool days around mid seventies and night around 59-60 degrees... Perfect in our books... Of course there were a few days of rain and some morning were socked in with a pretty heavy sea fog. We LOVED it!
Phone/TV/Internet: Verizon phone worked well ~ We got Satellite with our roof top antenna (Direct TV) ~ Internet card did not work here but the parks free wifi worked great where we were parked.
Elevation/Landscape: Rolling hills with big trees and well manicured lawns.
Lighting/Noise: Some traffic noise at night but nothing that we couldn't live with also the lighting at night was OK... we slept well here!Hiking/Walking/Biking: There are a lot of roads in the park to walk in ~ I am sure there must be hiking trails around but we didn't notice them. With all the quaint towns around and Halifax we did a ton of walking around them.
Things to See & Do: Peggy's Cove, Memorial sites for Swiss Air Accident, Many quaint towns and coves, Historic Lunenburg, Halifax, Lighthouses, Mahone Bay, Chester and much more.
Rating: (9.8) Even though this park had no pool it was still in our books almost perfect. The owners made it really nice and the area is just gorgeous. We were sad to leave here...
