Whidden Park Campground & Cottages hopes your stay is an enjoyable one. To help ensure that your experience is pleasant, we've put in place the following rules for all guests to abide by. Security Officers will be on duty most of the season to ensure these rules are followed, and we ask for your cooperation in our efforts to provide the most pleasant atmosphere possible.

Quiet time - 10:30PM

The quiet time policy is in place to be fair to all guests and is strictly enforced. Noise after this time must not leave the campsite or cottage unit. Vehicles should only be used for emergency purposes as motor noise can disturb sleeping guests. Any disregard of this Park policy could result in immediate expulsion.

Visitor Rules

Park guests are permitted to have visitors, under the following restrictions:

  • All visitors must leave the Park by 9:30.
  • Upon arrival, all visitors must register at the main office.
  • Guests are responsible for their visitors' actions. Guests may face expulsion based solely on their visitors' actions.
  • Campground facilities, including the swimming pools, are off limits to visitors unless day passes are purchased.

Parking Policy - One vehicle per site

This rule is for the safety of all guests. As a family campground, many of Whidden Park's guests are children. To reduce the risk of vehicle-related accidents, Whidden Park has a strict policy of one vehicle per site. Visitor vehicles are not permitted in the main campground. Visitor and auxiliary vehicle parking is located behind Mini Homes #24-38.

Vehicle Speed Limit - 10KM/HR

For safety reasons, the speed limit while in the campground is 10 kilometers per hour.

Child Safety:

Parents are responsible for the safety of their children at all times while in the Park. Biking/rollerblading/etc. after dark is dangerous and therefore not permitted - this policy is strictly enforced.

Proper Conduct

Guests are expected to conduct themselves in a family-friendly manner, profane language and actions will not be tolerated. Use of alcoholic beverages must be confined to the user's site - this is in accordance with Nova Scotia law, violators could face fines. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 19 to consume alcohol in the province of Nova Scotia.

Campfire Policy

Use only firepits/stoves where provided. Please do not burn garbage as it creates odours and pollution. Campfires must be out by 11:30PM.

Smoking Policy

All Park buildings, including restrooms, are non-smoking. Violators may be fined. Guests must dispose of smoking materials properly.

Pets Policy

Pets must be kept on a leash and must not be left unattended. Guests are responsible for the clean up and noise control of their pets.

Pool Rules

Children under 12 must have adult supervision while at the pool. Pool supervisors are not lifeguards - swim at your own risk. A list of pool rules is posted at both pools and these rules must be followed.

Whidden Park reserves the right to evict, without prior notice, anyone who, in its own judgement, creates a disturbance, is intentionally a nuisance, or deliberately breaks any of the above rules. No refunds will be given in such event.
