Be sure to read the entire website before booking! I booked by phone and the staff member did not mention their no refund policy on cancellations. When I had to cancel, the excuse was "well it's on our website". My credit card was charged $75 but when I was sent my credit voucher by mail (can be used within 1... More

BEWARE!!!! If you book a site at this campground, and have to cancel they will NOT reimburse you. Personal issues came up and I had to cancel my reservation; I thought this would not be a big deal. I expected a small fee for cancelling, but no. The full price of the campsite was required- this was a $60 mistake.... More

It's a bit pricier but it's so clean and well kept and a lovely spot, it's definitely worth it. Was so relaxing last night and this morning. Bathrooms are impeccable as are the grounds. Many ocean view sites for campers and for tenters. Pics are the sunset view just feet from where our site was.

We we're charged a $10 booking fee, for calling the night before to reserve a campsite! No where else in our extensive travels, have we had this issue! I asked to have the $10 refunded, and was flatly refused!! They said it was stated on their website, which we didn't look at, it wasn't stated in Good Sam or Nova... More

Aaah....the Cove. Looked great on-line but a bit sub-par in reality. First, let's talk price. There were some extra fees involved, bringing the cost of our two-night stay to somewhere around $120 for just one tent site with two adults and a child. The campsite itself was barren and windswept. In fact, my partner was forced to re-secure the tent... More

We stayed in June, before the high season started so we had the campground pretty much to ourselves. I did not read the reviews before going and I am wondering if we all stayed at the same place. I found the owners to be absolutely delightful. They were nothing but helpful and very very nice. We were not charge any... More

We were at The Cove Oceanfront Campground in Parker's Cove. We loved it and ended up having our stop over last five nights. It is close to Annapolis, a lovely town where everyone was friendly, and it has a homey well keep beauty as does most of Maritimes. The Saturday market is an adventure not to be missed. We saw...

This is a very nice campground with a gorgeous view and very well kept grounds. It however is way overpriced compared to similar campgrounds located on the Bay of Fundy. We liked that it was located centrally for great day trips around the area. Also great that it is located across the road from the lobster market! Buy live or... More

Had some campers go to this campground looking for other couples they were to meet up with. Would not tell them if they were there or not and charged them a nights stay just to go in and find out their friends were not at this campground. They refused to refund their money or let them use the phone. Sent... More
