In Nova Scotia you will find two KOA campgrounds, on located in the north and the other in the south, which are sure to meet your camping needs. What you will find at these campgrounds is everything you would expect from a KOA campground and just a little bit more. If you’re familiar with the KOa chain of campgrounds you will be pleased with the offerings you’ll find in these prime locations. What follows is a brief overview of each site and a little information on area activities to help make your stay a little nicer.
The Halifax West KOA is located in the southern region just south of Grand Pre’. The campground offers RV slots equipped with 50 amp service and 120 foot length so there should be no trouble meeting your needs there. Teant sites are plentiful and can usually be had on a walk up basis. The one room cabins on the other hand go rather quickly and advance booking is always adviseable for these prime spaces. The campground opens on may ninth and closes for the year on October fifteenth. There is a camp store and limited snack bar type of arrangement and WiFi service is available and free so you can stay connected to the rest of the world. The pool opens from June 30th to September 15th so plan ahead if pool usage is important to you.
Up north just west of Sydney Mines you’ll find the North Sydney/Cabot Trail KOA campground which offers all the same basic features of her sister campground the Halifax West. This site opens on May 15th and closes for the year on October 15th. Rv slots with 50 amp service and 85 foot length are available as are plenty of ten sites and one room cabins. Remember to book in advance for cabin sites, like everywhere else they go fast. The swimming pool here opens July first and closes down September fifth so just as at the halifax West plan accordingly if pool usage is important to you.
While you are there take some time to explore the rich history in the area, first on your list should be the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Don’t forget to stop by the Citadel National Historic Site which is an 18th century fort which offers an amazing view of downtown Halifax. The Cabot Trail is considered to be one of North America’s most magnificent loop drives and is well worth taking the time to check out. It’s hardly a visit without stopping here. Once you’ve done that spend some time at the Halifax Public gardens or Cape Brenton heights. What you can expect ot find at the KOA sites is great service and well maintained facilities at a good rate. They are well suited to families and adult groups equally and Halifax has plenty of activity to keep everyone busy and happy during your stay.
