“Great to explore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

The Ovens Park has always been a family favorite spot to explore. Just outside the beautiful town of Lunenburg- this spot is very picturesque. There are lots of activities for a family to do. If you only want to visit for the day, tent, RV or rent a cottage you can. When we stayed we rented a cottage. The cottage was simple but very clean. The walking trail is interesting, overlooking the ocean cliffs and the huge caves below. I love the caves. There are some caves you can go inside from the above walking trail. This is a great spot to take your family or explore on your own.

“lovely family tenting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is a campground that is family run and has been here for years.
My kids always loved going here and there are a few sites where you can go and be almost alone, yet the kids can socialize

“Stick your head in Oven's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

We have a home in Lunenburg and get a lot of visitor's from our residence area of Florida. The oven' is a place we always take our guests. The trail and caves are great. The Miner Dinner has good food at reasonable prices and the scenery can't be beat. To top it off the music in the evenings by various members of the Chapin Family is an added benefit. Since we have never camped there I can't comment. Well worth going too.

“dining, history, sea caves, pool, great camping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

What joy to have a licensed restaurant with beautiful food, a pool, flush toilets, showers, tours of the seacaves in zodiacs, fun things in the woods like the challenging slack line game. I loved my time there. Even the tiny museum of a gold rush no one ever heard about is fascinating. This plateau once held an entire goldrush town.

“Well Worth The Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Although we are not campers, we did a bit of research on The Ovens Natural Park and decided it was a place we should stop and visit when travelling from Lunenburg to Annapolis Royal. We spent a couple of hours there doing the hike and taking in the beautiful views of the rugged cliffs, caves and ocean. There was a fee to get in even if you weren't camping, but after seeing some of the great photos we ended up with, I feel it was worth the money.
