There are thousands of provincial parks across Canada with great opportunities for camping, but About Camping readers selected Cape Chignecto Provincial Park in Nova Scotia as their top spot to pitch a tent.
The park is located on the prominent headland that divides the Bay of Fundy and Cape Chignecto. The spectacular shoreline is popular for hiking and backpacking. The ocean fog creates a unique climate allowing an abundance of lichens and red firs to grow.
With 50 kilometers of hiking trails, backcountry camping is most popular here. There are more than 50 backcountry campsites and 28 walk-in campsites available for camping.
