At Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, towering 185-meter (600-foot) cliffs rise from the Bay of Fundy while the world’s highest tides lap at their base. Cape Chignecto is a 4,200-hectare natural environment park on a dramatic coastal peninsula. The park features 29 kilometres (18 miles) of pristine coastline, some of Nova Scotia’s most significant geological features, deep valleys, sheltered coves, rare plants, remnant old growth forest, scenic views, and a rich cultural heritage. We offer wilderness camping in secluded coves and ravines, while a spectacular coastal hiking trail leads visitors along high cliffs and deep valleys. Because Cape Chignecto is a wilderness hiking park, there are no drive-up camping sites.

We were kayaking for 5 hours round trip and have about 1 hour break in between. When we left the place our... More

Again... you can not complain about anything being in this part of Nova Scotia at the middle of August... Nice weather, sunny days, mysterious dawns and sunsets, picturesque views from the roads and along the shores... You dive and drive then stop and enjoy another view, another harbor or bay or hill... It's gorgeous there... going along Advocate Road and... More

Don't miss this gem! This park has absolutely gorgeous views of the Bay of Fundy, especially along the coastal trail. Be cautious of the rising tide while walking on the beach - check with staff at the Reception building (where you check in) to determine if you have time to walk the beach before the tide covers it!

I was on a kayaking trip with NovaShore Adventures but visited the Park centre the evening before we started. The centre itself was very informative about the geology, wildlife and plants. Red Rocks was a great place to eat supper and watch the spectacular tides. When we camped at Refugee Cove I walked out to Cape Chignecto to see the... More

This park on the Bay of Fundy outside Advocate Harbour has fantastic views of the bay and cliffs, hiking trails, bunkhouse and cabins as well as tent camping. There are not so many people here. Great place for kayaking as well.

We camped in Christy Field here... which had an incredible view. We also did the 12km roundtrip Elliot Brook to Seal Cove hike, which we didn't find challenging, but did provide some really lovely views.

Park offers several trails, We took a nice walk up the hill and along the beach. Path is well-maintained and pleasant. Pretty waterfall at the farthest point of the trail. Free access and free parking. Good maps.

We were pressed for time so just had time for the 5km trial which we were able to do in an hour and 15 minutes. Day was overcast but warm. Had walking sticks. Trial was well marked and maintained. Mosquitos were not too bad. Some nice lookouts. Not too strenuous .
