Our group makes Elm River its main campsite monthly from May-Sept. We have use of the Rec Hall each weekend in which to hold Club activities with open invite to other campers. New management has generally refreshed the campground. Showers, washrooms, laundry facilities are tops in cleanliness. Great level pull-thru sites. Trailer problems are usually fixed by the owner and his mobile repair service. Cons no stove in the rec hall; internet service is sketchy to zero. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Locked in at night. From 11:30pm until morning, you are locked in the park - I’m not a fan of this. They have a breaker box - but the breakers are zip-tied so you can’t use them - I do not like plugging and unplugging on a live wire. Hot and cold water are mixed(but well marked) in the bathrooms. I made my reservation by phone a couple of months in Advanced with Linda & was told I would get a 10% discount with Good Sam. Upon arrival - I was told that was not true and did not get a discount (said they offer a 5% cash discount only). Gravel drives and grass pull-throughs (glad it was not raining when I was there) - mostly level, but had to find sweet spot. Seems like some seasonal and many spots for short stays. Easy in and out of park. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground can handle big rigs. Our 45' motorhome just fit into our grass site & we parked our tow across the gravel street. Mostly dirt/gravel roads with grass/gravel mix for sites. Can cause some dust without recent rain. Mostly 30amp service in the park, but there are some 50amp. Our 50amp was fine for the first part of the week, however the last 3-4 days it kept losing power & flipping the breaker. Restroom/Laundry clean but dated. Our satellite picked up DirecTV, but heard that DISH would not pick up due to low satellite direction. Park is gated at night after 11pm. Several RV caravans come through the park, so make reservations accordingly. MassMarket (a very nice deli/market), Petro Gas, and a diner are within 1 mile. Truro is about 15 min away. No wifi, must go to wifi hotspot at Playground, or the office. Easy on/off TransCanada 2. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Many sites in shady trees, but big rig sites are huge PTs with just an occasional tree--perfect for our 41' class A and a nearly clear shot for satellite (but DISH western arc satellites are still too low on the horizon). Nice well-kept grounds. Roads are well maintained hard-packed gravel/dirt, much better than soo many parks that rock the rig! Office folks were supremely accommodating in fitting us in for an extra day despite a large caravan arriving. Neal who lives here is a very capable tech who saved our bacon on arrival. I'm leery of getting on the roof (ear/balance issue); he fixed the front AC shroud/bent condenser coils/broken fan blade (a low-hanging wire damaged it prior to arriving) and installed a new start capacitor (I had the part) on the other. He also had the part I needed to fix my 7' rock guard. And all done for a very reasonable fee! Wish he had the time to do a couple more things! Important! If you use a Garman RV GPS with campgrounds, it will lead you to the WRONG address. You want exit 12 off of Hwy 104. Our (recently updated) Garmin took us to exit 12 off of Hwy 102 and to a spot between a potato field and a corn field! Trying to get back to 102, it then led us on to 3 other roads to a 4th that turned out to be a non-existent road. Disconnected tow car and turned around the big rig in what was little more than a driveway! The park is quiet and a convenient 15 minute drive to Truro for any shopping needs that cannot be met at the local Masstown Market--itself worth a visit. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park with clean restrooms and showers. It is basicly a grass field with some trees. The transient campers are all in one place. Good internet and close to Truro for what ever you need. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I agree with most previous posts. We found it to be the most pleasant Canadian campground of the seven we've been in so far on this trip. Pull thru site plenty long enough and relatively level. Good space between sites. 50 amp power good. Water pressure a little low. Appreciate how the seasonal campers are in a section of their own. The showers were amazing and free. Didn't use them but loved the style with a private changing area outside of the shower with plenty of hooks. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Picked up and delivered our propane tank to site. We had a flat and it they fixed it on site. We would return again. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good Sam discount for a one night stay. Site was pull-through, level, grass, FHU with 30amp. We had good Verizon cell and internet reception, but limited DishTV satellite reception. The park is staffed with pleasant people, but this is an older park and the registration office/camp store is in sad shape. There are many long term residents. The transient sites are in a large open field.

Our GPS has an incorrect location for this park and was routing us to a location 15 miles away. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate of $38.00 per night for full hook-ups (30 amp) plus tax with Good Sam discount. Entrance to the park from the highway is a dirt road as are all the roads in the park. Roads are one-way, we had no problem navigating through the park. Our site Y29 was a pull through grass site fairly level. Although sites are close together and open, they are large enough to extend slide outs and awnings without encroaching on the next site. All hookups were on the left side of the coach, easily accessible and worked as designed. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Location of fire ring, smoke, could be an issue depending on how the wind was blowing, close to the RV's. With the exception of the roads, the whole park is grass. There is a playground for the kids and the park sponsors activities in the rally hall. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. We originally booked just two nights and stayed an extra night. Like most parks in the north, there is a sizable group of seasonal units in this facility, however, the park is very clean and appealing. Location very close to Masstown Market and a short twenty minute drive to Truro. Did not use bathrooms, showers or WIFI. Our Verizon and T Mobile had only one to two bars but did work. No service for Sprint. Enjoyed our stay here, we would return again if in area. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Motorhome.

We paid $50 per night for a really, really short pull thru. We could not actually pull into it, we needed to back up first. Site was more suitable for something small, like a class B or a small C. We had called a couple of days before our stay and probably got the last available site. Too bad the place wasn't full as we would have stayed somewhere else. Our site, site #1, was without a doubt the worst site here. They practice dust control, but only on the road coming into and a bit past the office. Once you go around back to where the sites begin, dust control ends. We were in the very first site you reach. The road splits here and goes both behind and in front of this row of sites. There is also a side road right across from us. As a result we were in a dust bowl as traffic was passing in all directions. It was very busy here, this RV park is also a caravan stop. One arrived right after we did and we were covered in dust within minutes. A lot of traffic was generated by workers zipping back and forth to park the caravan. Some of the larger RV's were coming very close to us making the turn in front of us. You could see where the grass was worn down by RV's that could not make the tight turn. . It was good that we were charged extra for 50 amps, we could not open windows because of the dust and we had to run our AC's non stop. The water pressure was bad and we needed to use our pump to take showers. Electric connection was old and worn, but the voltage was ok. We had 1 OTA TV station. We did not pay for the wifi, which was good as we were here during the big phone outage that hit this part of Canada. They do have some nice sites here, but it looked like the caravans got them. Not a place we would return to and were happy to leave the place. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a good one night stop. The park has grass sites and gravel roads. MAKE SURE YOU GET DIRECTIONS!! We used our Garmin RV GPS and it took us half an hour in the wrong direction!! Make sure you take exit 12 on highway 104, NOT 102!! Wifi is not existent, you can pay for it as an extra (why not just charge $2 more and have it included??) and warning: cel phone service is also non existent! Be prepared to be without your phone and ipad/tablet for the time you're here :). The one negative? I had called to book the park two weeks ago; when we showed up they had no record!! Most of the time I get email confirmations but they don't do this here. I did get the ladies name who I had booked it with and when I said the name the two gals said OH!! YES!! Anyways one lady came to our site an hour later and said they found the confirmation behind some other paperwork. Good thing the park was half empty! We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Not much here; you can check out the "Tidal Bore" (the bay of fundy tide basically pushes water back up the river). Its not big, a small 6" "wave" going back up river. If you're into this? Go for it, we found it pretty unspectacular. Go ahead and do it and brag to your friends you saw a 3" Tidal Bore (just lie like hunters and fisherman!)

A great stop near Truro (centrally located). When you first pull in, it doesn't look like much (basically a corn field) but it actually was very nice. There are a lot of sites here and we stayed in the back row along a river, where it was very quiet and nice. We only had one neighbor show up and they were quite far from us. Very nice restrooms / showers / laundry. The owners stay onsite and were very accommodating. We would stay here again. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Motorhome.
