Halifax Nova Scotia

I will be traveling to Halifax NS in July, traveling from Quichee Gorge in VT. Can anyone recommend a couple of way points as mapping shows 700 plus miles and will need two nights on road. I also am looking for a good campground there. I have a 37ft Georgetown motorhome, height 12' 4". All replies appreciated.

Woodhaven would be a decent campground near Halifax.

If you are going to Halifax------------

If you are going to Halifax, by all means go to "PEGGY'S COVE" also Lunenburg, both are very historic.

There are a couple camp grounds, one is at Amherst, NS just as you cross from New Brunswick at the welcome station. It is Loch Lomond, RR 6 STN Main, 902-667-3890. Another one is at Hilden,NS near Truro. It is called "SCOTIA PINE CG" 1911 Highway 2, Hilden 902-893-3666.

We crossed the border at Calais on Highway 9. If you take HWY 9 from Bangor, Me, make sure you gas up in Bangor (no stations) And gas up before crossing the border. Last September gas was $5.19 per IMP gallon. The pumps will not take an American credit card, you have to go inside to get pump turned on, gas up the go inside and pay with Credit card. Most of the time diesel was cheaper than gas.

We bank at Bank of America which has an agreement with "SCOTIA BANK" in Canada to use their ATM machines for Canadian dollars at a very low charge for using. The exchange rate was dollar for dollar. Check with your bank to see if they have an agreement with a banking system in Canada.

There are plenty of camp Grounds in Nova Scotia, just about anywhere you go. I used the Trailer Life directory with listings for Canada.

Enjoy yourself, we did, for we spent 3 weeks in P.E.I., Nova Scotia. Lots to see.

If you have any questions, PM me.

We have been to Scotia Pines a few times and it is a nice campground,very flat and easy to set up.I might be biased but I think any campground in NS is an excellent place to stay.

Lots of nice campgrounds in Nova Scotia. Scotia Pines and Loch Lomond are just 2 of many nice ones. There are also very nice Provincial Camgrounds. These do not have services, but the price is good. Woodhaven is the closest to Halifax but there are plenty within a hour drive of Halifax. Lunenburg is a Unesco World Heritage Site and a must see. I live very near Lunenburg. Pumpkin Patch is a real nice campground in Bangor, just in case that is one of your stops. Any questions, ask away.

If youwant to stay in New Brunswick near the US border I recommend Ocean Front Camground in St Andrews, right on the water and a lovely town to visit.
