12 RV Parks near Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia
Sep 2018 - $35.00
We have stayed here for the past 6 years for 2 weeks in August and 3 weeks in September. The park is very close to all amenities. Sites are treed with 3 way hook up for 30 and 50 amp. We like it very much. It has a combination of permanent and daily campers and is kept very clean. The park has it's own Laundromat which is very handy. - The Pecks

Woodhaven RV Park is very pretty: large, gravel sites, well wooded, with trees separating the sites. And the wifi is good, at least for my computer; my tablet and phone are having some difficulties. But the water system was under a boil ban, indicating a failure of maintenance, and I had to rely on my fresh water tank. Had the water been clean, I would have rated this park a 7. - Jim Fulton

A nice location for visiting the Halifax area. The park has a lot of mature trees between and around the sites. The sites are gravel, narrow and very uneven. We had a lot of problems finding a spot flat enough to level even using our blocks. The park has a nice pool, decent bathrooms and showers and a game room. The customer service at the front desk was poor and the wifi did not work well enough to check email. We would recommend looking at other parks in the area.

We spent two weeks here, using it as a base to explore Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. This is a family friendly CG. Many things for kids to do and many kids on weekends, If you don't like young kids around this is not for you. This is a good central location to tour from. But, the general maintenance and cleanliness were barely sufficient. Three washers and two driers were out of order for the whole two weeks. The owner didn't seem particularly concerned, possibly because most guests seem to be there for just a couple of days. The trash dump was messy and not kept clean. Having said that we might well stay there again but be more picky about the site. - captaincakes

KOA discount for eight nights. Site was back-in, gravel, level, FHU with 30 amp. The adjacent sites were very close. Verizon cell/internet reception was good. Trees blocked DishTV reception. The park wifi was inconsistent; fast at times and slow at other times. The park interior road was narrow, curvy, and bumpy. Dissatisfied with the park because they hosted a loud karaoke night that went well beyond quiet hours. We will look elsewhere before staying at this park again. - Dave51

The staff was excellent and the sites are level, gravel lots with some shade depending on your location...as with most KOA's the sites are close but not too bad....the roads are narrow but manageable with our 36' with toad, watch out for the children and people walking....all services worked well, ATT signal was fine and we used our hotspots for wifi, although their wifi was ok at times....only got 2 channels with our antenna....the showers, restrooms and laundry were all clean with plenty of hot water....once again this is a very family oriented park with a lot for the kids to do...this campground is a great location for visiting the Halifax area....we would stay here again..... - smoky40

This park is nice and close to Halifax. But, roads are really tight, I did manage to get my 41' 5th wheel but I needed to put my truck in 4 wheel drive; first time in 80 plus parks I've been in! And the services were on the wrong side of my coach so guess what; my sewer was running uphill? I couldn't open my awning all the way that's how close to the trailer was beside me! The other thing was I had called in 2 weeks prior and made the reservation; when I showed up she didn't have me down. My bad for not confirming by email (which I always do). The owner is very pleasant and made sure I had a full service site but this is basically a small family operation. Wifi was terrible; not sure again why RV parks in North America get better systems and charge us $5 more per night!! Oh and there was a picnic table, but on the wrong side of the trailer!! - North America in 90 days

This campground is near a highway; if you don't like road noise avoid it. I was put in a spot for a 25 ft. when I told them I had a 34 ft. My truck stuck out on road while unhooking. The site was on the main road going in and out of the ball field and dog area; it was constant traffic on a dirt road for hours. Children and dogs would not be safe in these spots. They had bumpers to slow people down farther up, but as soon as drivers were over them they speeded up. My camper and truck were filthy dirty within 2 hours from dust. The back-in site was exactly opposite of what it should be for hook-ups. I was able to reach but the spot really was meant for a small van not a travel trailer. Ridiculously priced for what you received. No Wi-Fi because - you're too far to get it....but of course those who are too far are charged for it anyways (in the nightly rate). Would not recommend. - chammp

Points lost for being very expensive for just W&E plus a lack of security. Not that the park is in a questionable area, it is very nice, but there are an awful lot of looky look sightseers who go cruising through the CG well past 10:00PM. Sites are spaced enough but have that Canadian cost saving thing of one utility post serving two sites so that you are parked opposing one but facing another. - Veebyes

Nice park great people to deal with, could use update in Washrooms, clean but old. 5 k from Peggys Cove makes it worthwhile. - Earl Lovett

We have stayed at Wayside a number of times over the years, and enjoy the friendly and helpful staff and ideal location for day tripping to the many tourist sites. Yes the campground is rustic, but does have a certain charm about it. Some maintenance would not hurt especially the electric posts and some hose posts. Wi-Fi has weakened over the past few years due to the many trees and bushes hampering the signal, this is not a reflection on management, the trees are what makes Wayside a lovely spot to stay. We would highly recommend this park for a short or long stay. - Keith J H

I booked this campground for 5 nights even after reading the last review. As soon as we pulled into the office area, I had regrets. Office building is rundown. The owners were pleasant. We had our pick of sites in one area which seemed to be for travelers. We got out and looked around for our hookups. Each post at most sites had been hit or run over. As for wifi, the only available signal is next to the office. The grounds smell of sewer. On the upside, it is close to Peggy's Cove and a seafood market. And our site was grassy. - Patches

We camper in this park for 2 nights, the park is small with only 60 or so sights of which only a few 15 or 20 will accommodate larger trailers. The park is also self check in via an on site "yellow" phone or online. None of the campsites have power or water. The comfort station is very clean and lost of hot water for the free showers. The lots are well spaced and most for larger trailers have lots of space. Most all sites have lots of shade. The roads in the park are paved but the camp sites are a mix of gravel and grass. There are some short walking trails in the area and it is an easy walk to the lake. We also found the campground to be very quite even though it was busy. In short we will plan to return to this campground again in the future. - Fundy

We love this park! In fact we stay here at least once every year. Staff is friendly and helpful. For us the main attraction is the beach, and since we are always a bit off season, it is quiet and uncrowded. Very restful to sit on one of the benches and read or to walk. Right on the premises is a canteen with good fish and chips as well as ice cream, plus the Shore Club, famous for its lobster suppers is also just at the entrance to the campground. There are lots of 'seasonals', and why wouldn't they want to summer here? but they are friendly and units are all well kept. Good wifi. - D and M

First: the customer service is great.
I was at Lot #23 and the sewer connection is about 2 ft higher, usually @*&!# runs down hill, not up hill. Very small lot, I have a 34 ft coach with motorcycle rack and it was tight. I had to park sideways. The first lot was #29 and there was no way I could fit there. - Rstp57

Park is well located near beaches and Town of Hubbards. Unfortunately, it Does not have water views from sites. Apparently, there is beach access but we did not use. Great gift store and there are lobster dinners and entertainment adjacent to the park. Very quiet and good for a rest.
Owner is excellent, efficient and very helpful. We'll be back. - camperme

We stayed one night at King Neptune and were very impressed by how quiet it was even though it is a very busy campground. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Can't beat it's proximity to Peggy's Cove but the views at the park are equally as beautiful. - LMMcMuskoka

Site 26 by far the best. Awesome. We got lucky and were randomly given this spot. Once you have a site you can stay as long as you wish. No reservations. Great destination park. Grass pad, no sewer, fairly level. No credit cards. A good many of the sites have a view of the ocean. Used bear extender to get wifi. No cable and only one OTA. The site may be considered a back-in but we drove straight in and ran the cords underneath MH. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

While the sites were tight, the view was awesome as we pulled in so we could watch the sunsets. The owner works with you to select the spot you want and helps you get settled. Cash only at $40 CDN. - cherib

This is one of the seven self-registration campgrounds in Nova Scotia, which means that there are minimal staff on site, primarily for maintenance purposes. This means there are few, if any staff run activities at this park. However, this campground participates in the campground host program, so hosts are available to assist and answer campers questions. While reservations can be made online, onsite self registration is easy with a free 'yellow' phone at the park entrance that connects you to a reservation clerk. There is no reservation fee for onsite reservations.
Cell phone coverage within the park is almost non-existent, though you may be able to get a signal at the entrance to the park. There also is a payphone and spotty Internet access at the entrance at the park entrance. All sites are unserviced, with most sites being grass covered and quite large. There is a dump station with a hose for black tank flushes and there are water spigots throughout the park for filling your fresh water tank. The campground tends to fill-up on weekends but during the weekdays that we were there in mid-July, there were only half a dozen other campers. There is a clean washroom with free hot showers and a dishwashing station.
There is a day use picnic area near the entrance to the park, but separate from the campground.
The nearby town of Windsor has all the services you might need. A short distance from the campground on NS 14 there is a gas station that sells diesel, has a NS liquor outlet, and small convenience store. Good luck trying to enter the address of the campground into your GPS as there are two Brooklyn's in Nova Scotia. Ask for directions when making your reservation. - driftdiver1

We stayed here for one night. The sites were very spacious. The washrooms were kept exceptionally clean. There were only 5 campers registered for the night we were here, which we found a little too quiet. We moved on the next day. The park really is quite nice, I don't know why it isn't more popular. - Rockwood

We tented on site 58 for 2 nights. during the week, this park is VERY quiet with not many campers, however as Friday came the park filled up. Due to large sites, you did not feel crowded and still managed to enjoy yourself. We opted for an open site, there are many water spigots to fill up or get dishes done. RV's might need to "rough it" however, the park is worth it for privacy & sound Spotty GSM cell reception, satellite radio was no problem. - thecyr

I do not like giving bad reviews based on just one visit but have been to this campgrounds several times over the span of several years. Why did return several times you ask, it is close to home and almost always has space available on short notice. First and foremost the sessionals are very friendly and this campground has so much potential with a little work. The campground driveway is always rough, the campground needs lots of general maintenance, grass is often long and when someone complained they tried to mow on the weekend when the grass was wet, dump station...... well I think we can drop the station. The campground owners do try and try and do some maintenance but it is often too little too late. The owners might benefit from taking some public relations training and understand they are sitting on what could be one of the best best campgrounds in the greater Halifax area instead of resting on what was given to them from family. I give it a 3 only because the seasonals are so friendly and the campground has so much potential. - Fundy

We have stayed here a number of times, we liked it because it was close to home, people seemed friendly and the kids loved the river and there is a golf course that my husband could enjoy to practice, it is not a golf course for the golf lover more of a learning course. This year to our surprise things have drastically gone down hill and the warnings we had received (from previous seasonals)of the owner or front desk lady Brenda finally showed her true colors. Bathrooms have become scummy, showers freezing cold and brown, pool run down and grimy with a not so friendly young attendant to mandate the rules, outdated crafts and activities for children, always doing construction which i realize has to be done, but really on a busy long weekend?? they say they have wake bording? really? when? and not to mention the grass is so long that we borrowed one from a seasonal camper, oh and lots of Ticks! I was highly insulted on our last trip due to the fact that we had visitors come to our lot, camp for the day and decided to stay for the night, so needless to say we forgot to pay the fee right away we were caught up in the moment of camping bliss, to have the owner or whoever she claims to be at the time Brenda, drive over and call us out on the fee we were to pay 5.00! So we told her we would be over, she was very rude upon our arrival to the OFFICE and told us that we had snuck our friends in, over the bridge and told us that we were trying to pull the wool over her eyes and get away with not paying...Really over 5.00 and us being what we could see as the last of her weekend costumers because the campground is usually not to capacity by any means, and after yelling at my pregnant sister inlaw over her right to receive a military discount! needless to say it is a shame that we will not be back! Sorry Renfrew Customer Service again at its finest! - rosesas
