Roads and sites are gravel. Sites are almost on top of each other. Heavily wooded. Water filter needed daily cleaning as it would turn brown with what appeared to be sediment. Possibly their well is not performing properly? Electricity & water supply on a 4x4 post loosely fitting in the ground. No circuit breaker at the post. We will not return here. - Field Trip

Short of staying in the Halifax city RV park in downtown Halifax (narrow roads and cramped conditions) this is the closest RV park to Halifax. Great location, easy to jump on 102 to downtown Halifax.
The park is surprisingly quiet, and the sites are somewhat spacious. We have what we think is the best site in the park: number 8. It’s a back in site but we only have neighbors on one side, and a nice grassy area screened by shrubs on the driver side of our coach.
There was plenty of room to park at 45 foot motorhome, extend all the slides and all the window awnings with no problem. There is even an adjacent gravel pad to park your Toad.
We would camp here again when visiting the area! - BamaBob

We requested a site that was sunny and open so that we could get DISH. We were given site P3, which is across from the office and next to the owner's/manager's house. It is very near Hammonds Plains Rd. This road is very busy during the day. At night, the traffic is light and not noisy. This site also backs up to a cemetery - literally - there isn't even a fence. However, the residents are very quiet. The park WIFI was great for phones and tablet. We did get DISH. We had 4G 5 bars of Verizon. Park is a great location for exploring Halifax. Interior roads and sits are gravel. Grass separates the sites. The main part of the campground is wooded and very pretty to walk through. - Dream Chasers

Some great secluded spots, some parking lot slots. We had #51 and it was great.
WiFi is great in school me places and unreachable in others. It was just useless at our slot but great by restrooms and pancake hut. Owner needs a few more access points installed.
Wood and ice delivered, small heated pool. Nice playground. Friendly staff. - EricNJ

The campground was clean accessible and well laid out. Owners offered many services and a nicely stocked camp store. In ground pool was clean and quite refreshing. Canoe and kayak rentals available and well used. Especially fun was the daily opened ice cream shop. Well worth a visit! - Bill_F

This is a review aimed towards anyone who ENJOYS the great outdoors of camping. Well this IS NOT IT. My wife and I stayed at this campground for 1 week and it surely was not enjoyable. We have no kids, they are grown and on their own so it's just us. We enjoy quiet and private camping, this KOA isn't it. The sites are very small and you are on top of the camper next to you. We have a 27' TT and I had a difficult time backing into my site, and I tow trailers for a living. Basically if you have a camper larger than 20' then you will be camping in an open field. As for the noise, if you enjoy camping in the middle of the highway then great, but we don't. The campground is roughly 100 yards from the major highway that goes into Halifax, and let me tell you it is very loud. Sitting outside to enjoy the great outdoors is non existent. You can not have a conversation with the person next to you without screaming. We stayed in our camper all week, except when we left the campground to explore. We had to keep the AC on to drown out the noise from the highway. Oh and their must be an airport close by, because we also heard planes flying over as well. So need less to say, my wife and I will not be staying here ever again. - Gregory

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

We stayed at Wayside park for 4 nights, enjoying visits to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, and Lunenburg. What a lovely site! We had a pull-through spot at the front of the park, with gorgeous water views and sunsets. The staff are super nice and very helpful. We walked the park one day and saw that it was much larger than we thought, with plenty of amenities (showers/restrooms) throughout. There is a large Laundromat next door which makes doing laundry easy. We really enjoyed our stay here. Yes, its a bit rustic but that did not take away from the charm of the location. - Judith Pierce

Great camp ground a little rustic! But good people! Not much for kids here. One little really out dated play park, but it's nice quiet and have nice views in the front of the park! We stayed for 2 nights and love our stay. - Sprocket1020

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 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

Good park for enjoying the area. Staff friendly and helpful. Sites are VERY close together - about 10 feet between RVs. We had a pleasant stay until Saturday night when our neighbor started a campfire which smoked us out of the trailer and we had to listen to loud music until after 11pm. Nice walking access to the beach if the weather is nice. - Captain BillS

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

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
