Whidden Park Campground is the perfect base for your Maritime vacation. Located in Antigonish, we’re we’re halfway between Halifax and Sydney and at the gateway to Cape Breton – an ideal stopping place! Swimming pools and games provide endless entertainment on-site and, with downtown Antigonish just off our doorstep, there’s plenty more to see and do nearby!


Compared with elsewhere in Canada, Nova Scotia has had some of the strictest restrictions in place since the pandemic began. While this approach has certainly paid off by keeping our cases low, it is important for travellers to keep up to date with the current restrictions before planning a trip. Quarantine requirements and travel bans have consistently been in place on travellers from most provinces since last Spring – please ensure you will be able to come before placing your reservation.

As the coronavirus situation evolves, we will always put the safety of our guests and community first.

Site Selection Policy:

Please note that when placing a reservation we cannot guarantee a specific site number. Whenever possible, we give current guests the opportunity to renew their sites before new guests arrive. If you have a reservation, you are guaranteed a suitable spot with the services you were promised. We just won’t know which exact site it will be until your arrival. Current guests will not be allowed to renew if there is nowhere else that is suitable for arrivals who have pre-booked. Most of the time we do have a number of spots open when people check-in and, if so, you’ll be able to take your pick from what is available.
