Nova Scotia has a wealth of provincial parks. Some are small picnic areas; others are large parks with a variety of facilities.
Cape Chignecto Provincial Park is located in Advocate Harbour in the Fundy Shore and Annapolis Valley Region. At Cape Chignecto, towering 180 m (600 ft.) sea cliffs rise from the Bay of Fundy, while the world's highest tides lap at their base. Best described as a wilderness park, it has 29 km (18 mi.) of pristine coastline, deep valleys, sheltered coves, rare plants, and remnant old-growth forests.
The park offers over 40 km (25 mi.) of wilderness trails, a picnic area overlooking the Bay of Fundy, an interpretation centre, and remote walk-in campsites. Cape Chignecto provides an excellent opportunity for wilderness hiking, back-country camping and sea kayaking.
Eatonville day-use park, near Apple River, provides visitors with accessible trail systems, viewing platforms, picnic areas, and an interpretive centre which includes information on the historical and geological significance of the area.
Cape Chignecto Provincial Park is a Bay of Fundy Recommended Experience. A park entry fee is charged.
