Whale-watching boat trip

General

  • Peaceful campground on Digby Neck, a kilometre from Whale Cove
  • A short drive from Bay of Fundy whale-watching trips
  • Playground and social room with TV and games

Whale watching on your wishlist? Wend your way to Whale Cove Campground, a peaceful place a kilometre from the coast at the aptly-named Whale Cove.

Boat trips to spot the big beasts may be the main attraction here (especially with several local operators offering discounts for guests), but they’re far from the only reason to settle in for a stay here. The campground’s central location on Digby Neck peninsula makes it a handy spot for all sorts of visits – its handy list of ’28 things to do’ covers beaches, birdwatching and the somewhat improbable Balancing Rock.

Back at base, facilities include a playground, fire rings and a cosy social room that’s open all day for guests to use its TV, DVD player and gaming console while drinking free cups of tea or coffee. There’s wifi access to help you plot your next move, a laundry room to deal with any dirt from your outings, and sparklingly clean restrooms with family washrooms and free hot showers.

You’d be well advised to stock up on most supplies en route to Digby Neck, but there’s a stash of firewood and ice on sale at the campground’s shop, along with some local crafts.

    very welcoming staff and friendly campers. short walk to private bathrooms, access to water sites not far from campsite, portable fireplace, the campsite seemed very small at first but turned out to be the perfect size.

    Disliked: 

    Road to our site was very rocky and all most impassible with my Nissan Altima. At a number of point I was actually hitting the bottom of my car. To me this should not be the state of a campground. Our site was very rocky, Bathrooms could use more attention to the cleaning. I do understand it is being used be a number of people and this could be hard to stay on top of.

    Room was clean. Netflix access was a bonus. Nice to have a coffee maker, micro-wave and fridge.

    Disliked: 

    Many old lawn chairs, BBQs cigarette butts just outside the entrance to the room. The bathroom door was an insubstantial plastic accordion pull over style allowing very little privacy. The room backed on a bank of washrooms to which many campers went back and forth during the night with many thumps,bumps and roaring from the fan heard through thin walls.

Nice spot, but I felt we were being screwed over with the first site.07/30/2020

    Most of the sites at this campsite are nice. Most of them have picnic tables and a fire pit (attached to a lawn mower so you can move it around). It was also nice to have some decent washrooms.

    Disliked: 

    The original campsite the staff had booked for us was a gravel pit with lots of tall, thick weeds. You would have had to clear them out yourself to put your tent down - and even still you'd be on top of gravel. Our site also didn't have a picnic table, which we were promised. This was the only campsite in this state of disrepair, so I don't know why they would even try to rent it out. Luckily, someone else had cancelled their reservation so we were able to change our site. Our new site didn't have a fire pit, which we were also promised, but we brought the fire pit from the original campsite over.

    No water for campers. Should be a shared tap for campers without power water hooked up

From the manager...

There are shared taps and sinks with water taps in the campground for anyone that would like to use hem. They are beside the garbage units so I am not sure how you missed them.

Local attractions

Get your binoculars and camera prepped – Digby Neck has a rep for being one of the best places to spot whales in the whole of North America. All sorts of whales hang out here or pass by throughout the year, and you’re liable to spy other marine life too, including dolphins, turtles and basking sharks. It’ll take you half an hour or so drive to the harbour to board a boat, and there are frequently special rates to be had for Whale Cove guests.

There’s some pretty great bird life around here, too – Brier Island, an hour’s drive south, is the best place to see them from the hiking paths or around ponds. And that’s not all that can be seen from the hiking paths: you may like to wander to Western Lighthouse, down at the tip of the peninsula, or ponder the existence of Balancing Rock (40 minutes away).

Leisurely days nearby might take you to the beach at Sandy Cove (10 minutes away by car) or to Lake Midway Provincial Park (15 minutes) for picnics, canoeing or fishing. Foodies may also like to make the 20-minute pilgrimage to Digby to sample the seafood in the ‘scallop capital of the world’.
