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.
