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.

I only had time for the Advocate Harbour part of this park, but the park staff gave me a map and told me there was a nice walk on the beach. They were right --- the beach is strewn with large red rocks that are really stunning. You can walk the beach for miles, at least at low tide, very... More

We drove down the coast road from Joggins (about an hour) and followed the hiking signs into Eatonville entrance. It is a long gravel/dirt road but stick with it. We were told that extreme high tide there could be water on the road but this was not an issue for us. This entrance was closed but there is parking by... More

You can walk from the driftwood retreat at low tide to the red rocks. There are some nice views if you go to the top, but I think better views from the beach. However, my kids had loads of fun taking the hike up and finding little frogs hopping about it everywhere. A beautiful area

Nice trails! Very well kept. We went all the way to Mill Brook. I would call it strenuous because of one area that has a very steep hill, but otherwise, a nice moderate hike. It's would be smart to check on the tides and try to time the hike to return on the beach side trail! That's what we did... More

We wish we can explore Cape Chignecto Provincial park more that 1 day. It was our first time there and there are many thing to see. We came from Moncton, it's about 2 hours drive to get there. 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.
