Can I choose my site? What are the sites like?
We want you to be happy with your site and will do everything we can to put you in the one you choose. However there may be an unforeseen issue with booking so we cannot guarantee any specific sites. All of the 3-way sites are pull through for easy access, and are 30 by 75 feet ensuring lots of room between sites. Our 2-way sites all run along the picturesque water. The tenting section is semi wooded with washroom facilities located nearby.
Can I put up a tent beside my RV? Can I put up a screened canopy for my camping items and food?
To ensure our policy that two families may not occupy one site, we allow just your RV on your site. Families that want to pitch a small kid's tent please inquire. Yes. Tent sites and RV sites may put up a screened canopy at their site. Limit is ONE Screened canopy per site.
Where is the Wi-Fi located? Are there enough AMP'S for my RV?
Free Wi-Fi service can be found located in the library and recreational hall area. All power sites are 30 amp service.
What should I bring for my stay in the wooden tent? Why do my friends have to pay a visitor fee?
A wooden tent is similar to a tent, but with the convenience of not having to set it up or take it down. You would want to bring an inflatable mattress and bedding. All sites have a picnic table and fire pit. Visitor fees help cover the extra costs of things like chlorine for the pool, fun prizes from activities, and cleaning our grounds. They also get to enjoy all of our amenities during their stay!
Are there a lot of wild animals in the campground? What if I forget some groceries or supplies. Is there a major store close by?
Camping is an outdoor experience. South Mountain Park sits on 115 acres of woods and ponds. There is a good chance you will encounter ducks, raccoons, turtles, deer, and muskrats. We ask that you respect our beautiful wildlife and simply walk away and not bother an animal that frightens you. Our general store has a wide variety of necessities, however, Kentville and New Minas are within 15 minutes from us.
Am I able to bring my dog? Are there any additional charges?
We are pet friendly, but do require all dogs to be on a leash at all times. As we are an environmentally conscious facility, and to help prevent the waste of water, our showers are on coin timers. There is a $0.50 per five minute charge. We also have a rental fee for paddle boats which is $3.50 for half an hour.
