Amenities and Rates and Rules

 Welcome to the closest campground to downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia!


If you are looking for full-service camping in the heart Halifax – you’ve found it! Nestled in a unique park setting, surrounded by 2 lakes and the historic Shubenacadie canal Shubie Park Campground is your gateway for urban exploration.

When you are not exploring our beautiful city you can relax at the campground, take a dip in the lake, play a game of tennis on our court, enjoy a stroll through the 75-acre park at our doorstep or just sit by the fire pit and enjoy.

Shubie Park Campground prides itself on providing exceptionally clean washroom facilities, lovely gardens, a safe and secure campground (on-site manager and 24-hour security) as well as friendly and helpful staff, all aimed at making your camping experience the best it can be.

Testimonial – see what our campers have to say about us…

I love camping here. The campground is clean, facilities are clean. Sites are nice. Great place for kids and families with the beach right there, Shubie park or walks, biking, sightseeing, canoeing. Playground for children. It’s not far from town if there’s anything you need or want to do off site. Staff are lovely.
