Description

Flat gravel parking lot overlooking Scots Bay. Maintained by provincial parks association. Pit toilets, garbage disposal station, entrance to scenic hiking trail, lots of space, excellent view of the bay with picnic table and bench. Mostly quiet - the lot is at the end of the main road and used by some to turn around and head back into the town of Scots Bay so there’s a tiny amount of traffic noise in the evening. The tide made more noise to be honest. No one bothered us. Stayed two nights no problem. No signs saying you can’t park overnight. One other large camper stayed as well.

Amazing spot to park overnight! View is fantastic and the advice to park away from the trailhead was good - people do come quite early to start on the trail.
There are picnic tables, garbage/recycling/compost, pit toilets. I’m not sure when the pit toilets and garbage cans are locked/taken down for the season.

we stayed here the night, no problems. a local even stopped by after doing the hike and said we wouldnt be bothered here.
carpark does get busy in the day as the trail is a popular one, but at night it was empty.

As described. Busy in the afternoon but empty at night. One other Rv stayed. Trail is worth the walk.

Nice spot. Beautiful view. Hiked the 12.6 km trail. Worth the hike for the amazing view at the end. Very busy being a beautiful sunny Saturday. Quiet night, one other vehicle spent the night. Vault toilets pretty dirty. In the morning people start arriving around 7:30-8:00 am to go hiking. Would stay here again.

Spent one night. Very busy during the day but quiet at night. Had no problems. Lovely hike! The spot diagonal from the trail head on the water side, the last one on that side, is right in front of a little trail down to a bench with a beautiful view.

Nice spot with a beautiful view! A few people came around 6:30 to start the trail but the parking lot is really big! I suggest to park at the opposite of the trail start!

We spent a night there with two other RV's. Peaceful spot with overnight access to the pit toilets. Information sign says 8km one-way but it is 6,5km easy walk. After a hike, we took a free shower at the Blomidon Provintial Park that is nearby. Asked employee allowed us to use it (it is very low-season). Hint: there are couple of places near that park that offers scenic view for the bay.

Wonderful spot for a night, the view is amazing, there are picnic tables and pit toilets on site! Several people here at dawn but they all left by 10pm. Spent the night with another RV there.

Report Check-In

Stayed two nights and had no problems. Nice place with a good view but the pit toilets were not clean at all (still better than no toilets). Did the hike too. 12km return and except of the nice view in the end it was quite boring... Several cars comming in the early morning to do the hike but other than that is was really quite (and dark!) at night.

Great place to park for night. Did long trail to Cape Split along with many other hikers. Nice picnic table, watched tide rise and fall on bay. Quiet night as we had rain starting 6pm.

Great spot to park overnight. Didn't see any signs saying you couldn't. Overlooking the tail end of the Bay of Fundy. Very clean pit toilets, picnic tables, and garbage/recycle bins. There is a 6 km trail here as well. We didn't do it. A couple cars stayed til dark and then we were alone. Mosquitoes were bad. There are homes along the route just before the gate. You have to drive up a very large hill before you come down the other side to the trail head. Views of valley below are spectacular.

Great place. Very quiet at night. A town official was there and told us it was okay to camp there.

Stayed one night. Tide coming is quite loud but still a good sleep. Beautiful views of the cliff faces in the bay. I saw a couple other van and car dwellers on the trailhead.

Awesome place. Gravel car park at the end of the road/ start of the Cape split trail. Picknick tables and pit toilets. Really quiet. Few locals and hikers until about 9pm then had the place to myself
