Provincial Campsite Bookings Begin in April
Campers should start thinking about their next outdoor adventure at one of Nova Scotia’s 20 camping parks. Reservations for the 2020 camping season will open April 2 and 3.
A schedule of which campgrounds open for reservations on which day is posted on the provincial parks website. Reservations can be made online or by phone at 1-888-544-3434 beginning at 9 a.m. Atlantic time on those days.
“Nova Scotia’s natural beauty and coastal access draw residents and tourists to provincial parks in all corners of our province,” said Lands and Forestry Minister Iain Rankin. “This year, campers can look forward to more serviced sites and other improvements to our properties when they go online to reserve their campsites.”
Most camping and day-use parks will open Victoria Day weekend and others will open in June. Campers can check the provincial parks website for information on openings.
