On the shore of the Northumberland Strait, Amherst Shore Provincial Park offers an attractive woodland setting for camping. Walking on trails, swimming or beachcombing are enjoyable pastimes at the park. This park, like others along this coast, offers some of the warmest saltwater swimming north of the Carolinas. A walking trail leads to an unsupervised beach on the Northumberland Strait. Guided walking tours of historical Amherst are available at various times of the year. There are many walking and hiking trails, such as Amherst Point Bird Sanctuary, as well as wonderful beaches in the surrounding area.
Our campground accommodations include 42 overnight woodland sites (un-serviced). Other amenities include showers/comfort station (flushed toilets), disposal station, fire grills, wood, ice, and a playground. Wireless Internet access is available at the administration building only and the surrounding area (please see park receptionist for details). A Campground Host is on site. Leashed pets are permitted. MasterCard, Visa and Direct Debit are accepted.
