Whidden Park

Whidden Park Campground offers everything vacationers need to have an enjoyable stay in beautiful downtown Antigonish located in the Northumberland Shore region of Nova Scotia. We are just a short stroll to the downtown core where you will find restaurants, shops, churches and ceilidhs.

Our open and shaded campsites are nestled on 15 acres of parkland and offer a fun-filled maritime vacation for the whole family!

Antigonish is situated halfway between Halifax and Sydney and hosts the longest running Scottish Highland Games held outside of Scotland and is located on the Sunrise Trail which runs the entire length of Nova Scotia's north shore, providing both a wonderful tourism destination and a scenic route from New Brunswick to Cape Breton Island.

Take a vacation and explore our beautiful coast, swim at our sandy beaches and enjoy our hospitality. Visit a vineyard, our historic sites or one of the many artists’ studios along the route. There are trails to walk, birds to watch and the ocean is never far away. Come and discover our diverse history on your vacation this year - you can be sure of a warm welcome!

Accommodations include 89 overnight sites (Electrical hookup, Water hookup, Sewage hookup, Unserviced), plus 65 seasonal sites. We also have two camper trailers which are set up on-site and available for weekly rentals (Saturday to Saturday). These units are partially equipped; towels, bedding, and linens are not supplied.

We provide open and shaded sites on a 15-acre property along the Brierly Brook.
