Amenities and Rates

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.

No other campground in Nova Scotia offers you the ability to connect to downtown Halifax as quickly as we can while providing you with a full camping experience. 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.
