Scotia Pines Campground ~ Truro, Nova Scotia

Description:  Scotia Pines is a clean park with lots of beautiful pine trees.  It is a great location for entering and leaving Nova Scotia which is what we used it for.  The office staff was not overly friendly and the sites were adequate.

    Rate: $41 per night and an extra $2 for cable TV which we needed since we were in the trees.  This is a Good Sam park.

    Date of Stay:  July 23rd & August 8th for overnight only

    Sites:  Sites are all pretty much close for big rigs but you can get into the sites and even though they are a little unlevel you can level up.  The 50 amps sites are few but with reservations you will get one but beware the hook-ups could be on the wrong side so if you don't carry extra electric cords & hose you might not reach it.  Ask for hook-ups on drivers side... the sewer is on the correct side.  The hook-up are shared hook-ups.

    Weather During Stay: Sunny and nice
    Phone/TV/Internet: Our Verizon had service here ~ TV was cable (too many trees where we were for satellite ~ They had wifi which we used... not great but OK.

    Elevation/Landscape: Lots of pine trees hence the name Scotia Pines... beautiful grassy areas around park for walking dogs... ground somewhat flat.

    Lighting/Noise:  Not much noise or light at night but during the day if you are near the pool it could get loud with kids.  It did not bother us at all and we were right across from it.  Also there is a train that goes by a couple of times during the night but the noise from it was not a bother to us,

    Hiking/Walking/Biking:  They have good roads for walking and riding bikes

    Things to See & Do:   Bay of Fundy TIDAL BORE !

    Rating: (6)  We thought this park was OK for overnight we just thought it was to close and we didn't like the hook-ups for electric & water being on the wrong side.  It is a good park for entering and leaving Nova Scotia. 

    Have Fun & Travel Safe
