Front Country Camping in Nova Scotia's
Provincial, Regional & National Parks
 

Nova Scotia has two National and several dozen Provincial Parks, the majority of which offer camping. The front country campgrounds vary from neighbourly open spaces to heavily wooded sites such as those in Kejimkujic. A large number of the Provincial parks are located along the Province's shores.

 
This of course hints at the vast number of sandy beaches in the Province. The parks along the Northumberland Straight (Sunrise Trail, Northeastern) take advantage of the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. Mountain bikers will love the trails in Cape Breton Highlands and Kejimkujic National Park. Paddlers have probably picked up on Kejimkujic's reputation for canoe camping. Kejimkujic along with Cape Chignecto are probably the best destinations for serious backpackers, while hikers will be pleased to find trails in almost every park in the Province. Expert sea kayakers can take advantage of the waters of Cape Chignecto, Five Islands and Cape Breton.
