Felt this was an overpriced campground because it was really crowded and there were only 2 shower stalls for women and 2 for men for a campground with over 200 sites. Plus, with the already high charge, the showers are $1. On my last night, the shower would only take 3 of my quarters, and then wouldn't work, and I wasn't in a position to go get more quarters and use the only other shower. People dirty the floors in the showers and they aren't cleaned enough considering the huge volume. The restrooms are otherwise modern and clean. There were many many people there, all making noise and burning fires, so it was smoking us out too. Herds of children circled the gravel roads on their bicycles continually. We felt like we were in a fish bowl, with people staring at you wherever you went, just because there were so many, in such close surroundings. The roads are packed-in gravel, but it rained a bit on the last day, and there was a layer of fine dirt on top, so it was impossible not to pick up clods on the bottom of your feet, which was difficult to clean off and not track into our trailer and vehicle. The grass was nicely cut and the place had nice landscaping. It is right across from Evangeline Beach, so you can walk over and see how it looks with the tide in and out, and we suppose that (plus the relative proximity to Halifax), is how they get away with charging so much. Driving from dump station took us to a dead end that we had to back out of-just be aware-you would think it would circle around. It was not pleasant and we would not go there again. We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The Look-off is worth driving 1/2 hour to see. Nearby Wolfville is a very picturesque town and there, the Independent Grocery is good. The historic Acadian site is very near, and worth seeing, as are the 3000 acres that are below sea level, due to dikes built in 1680 by the Acadians. This is a UNESCO location.

Campsites are close but very acceptable. The grounds are well kept. I noticed that there were about 60% of the occupants were seasonal. The only excess noise we experienced were motorcycles. I really did not appreciate pay showers after paying for our campground. We can tell you that from our site we were able to get Dish satellite tv. We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Definitely family oriented, many children but so very quiet overnight, and grounds are kept very clean. Many residents gather in the evening for congenial campfire chats. 50 amp service and WiFi were both slightly overpowered at peak times, but a surge protector is invaluable in these situations when everyone needs A/C. Wonderful location as tour base. We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Good shopping in New Minas. Hike Cape Split but stop fot ice cream at Look Off- what a vista! Browse in Wolfville. Eat lobster and enjoy the drive to Halls Harbour. This is a fabulous area to explore.

Park is mostly catering to seasonal campers. The campsites for daily/weekly campers are varying in size. Don't bother asking which site or trying to reserve a site they will not tell you. Section B where we stayed is best suited for small trailers in the range of Popup campers or at the most a 19 to 23 foot trailer. The owners were putting 32 foot motor homes and 32 foot fifth wheels in spots not big enough to get in. I don't know what the travelers would have done if we had not been at our site to move our vehicles or guide them in. Fire pits are a few feet from your RV when you do get it in so you have no chance of enjoying all the amenities of camping. If you plan on staying connected to the electronic world while you are here do no rely on their "free internet" it is impossible to get on or stay connected to it. As for Television, there are 2 local digital channels available. We experienced issues with the power box tripping with only the AC and one other electrical appliance plugged in. My fifth wheel was drawing less than 20-25 amps at the time.

Our first stay here more than 10 years ago was much more accommodating and this will probably be the last time we go here. We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

In typical Maritime fashion, we were met warmly. Arriving on a weekend, the campground was packed though quiet in the evening. The sites were very close together and mainly for this reason, we felt the park was overpriced. We were grateful to receive Passport America rate for weeknights. The location is easy to access. The sites are level gravel. WiFi was good. Showers cost $1.00! We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The view of the Bay of Fundy is lovely. There is hiking close by. In particular we enjoyed Blomidon Provincial Park. Wolfville is a beautiful little town and there is nice hiking around Acadia University. Further west, there is access to all facilities imaginable.

This park has a community feel with a large contingent of permanent or seasonal residents. The gravel driveways and the grass site were a bit narrow but adequate for our 37' MH and toad. Our site was fairly level and plenty long, but had a rather deep depression where everyone parks their wheels. The water, 30 amp, and sewer hookups were convenient. The park owner cheerfully reset the WiFi when I found it inoperative, and thereafter it was reliable, fast and free. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry. We appreciated their flexibility to refund our 2nd night when circumstances forced us to leave early, and felt the price was a good value for the amenities offered. We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

FHU 30 amp pull through transient site. Most of the sites in this park are "permanent" seasonals since they are packed in everywhere with all sorts of porches and out buildings. Park is well kept and quiet during the week when we were there, don't know what it would be like on a weekend. Free WIFI worked well, 3 over the air TV stations available.

Tips for other Campers:

Bay of Fundy across the road from the campground (on campground property) next to the concession building. Shopping nearby in Wolfville or New Minas where there are plenty of choices, e.g. Walmart, Superstore, Sobey's, Shopper's Drug Mart etc. Grand Pre winery just down the road a bit. Recommend calling for directions since GPSs will take you astray.

We enjoyed our stay here! There are a good number of seasonal campers, but they were friendly, as was the staff. The park is very clean and well maintained. Sites are on grass, but very level. Our site was open, although the tenting area is treed, as is the seasonal area. There is a large open no service area suitable for rallies, etc. Evangeline Beach is right there, very interesting to see the range of tides and shore birds. Wi-Fi is available, but not at our site. But it is very pleasant to sit by the pool or in the playground and use the Internet. Price reflects 10% Good Sam discount. We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate is for Passport America. This is an OK park for a night or two. The site was level, but in the grass. It rained for only about 20 minutes but we were then parked in a lake that lasted the whole night. One annoyance was when we checked in the person at the desk seemed almost upset we were using PA, telling of the economic hardships around. (I'm not sure why they just don't quit accepting PA then.) We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

On a positive note they do have level, dirt/grassy sites, laundry room, and slow Internet. The big negatives are they are way over priced and have low voltage issues. For $46 a night the voltage should not drop drastically when only using 18 amps when they are telling you that you have a 30 amp sight. Tried to run one air conditioner or the microwave without the air conditioner and the voltage would drop to below 110. Had to use my propane for hot water heater and refrigerator to prevent voltage from dropping dangerously low and damaging my electronic equipment. Will not camp here again.

WE DID NOT CAMP HERE. The person in the office was not very friendly. She laid out a long list of rules and wasn't very welcoming. Got to our site and plugged into "30 amp" elect. Power was only 100 volts and my surge protector would not operate. we told her and she said "they hadn't had any problems before". We told her we were leaving and she did refund our money. If you are camping in a tent, this park might work for you. We camped at Land of Evangeline Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
