Camping near the coast is a unique experience that adds a new element of fun to a traditional camping trip. Check out six awesome coastal campgrounds you’ll want to add to your list of must-visit camping destinations.
Nova Scotia reaches into the Atlantic like a lobster claw, fitting for this island of maritime delights. Go camping here and you’re never more than 35 miles (56 km) from the sea. Nova Scotia campgrounds are nestled along the peaceful Sackville River yet close to lively Halifax. Shop cobbled historic streets near the harbor, climb Citadel Hill and stroll the Halifax Public Gardens. Relax in your camping cabin, then follow the lighthouse-studded coastline to classic fishing villages like Blue Rocks and Chester. Don't miss a visit to Cape Breton Island, a rugged peninsula with a rich history and sea-swept headlands.
