RV campgrounds in Halifax

Halifax is a popular spot for campers, with several highly rated RV parks a short drive from downtown. One of the best RV campgrounds in Halifax is Woodhaven RV Park. Conveniently located a 30-minute drive from the heart of the city, Woodhaven RV Park features 147 full-hookup sites with 15/30/50-amp electricity. While there's not much to do at camp, you'll be within touching distance of two golf courses and a water park. Home comforts include a laundromat, free Wi-Fi, and showers. This campground is open seasonally from the beginning of May through Thanksgiving Monday.

If you'd prefer to camp along a river slightly further from the city, check out the Halifax West KOA. Perched on the Sackville River, 34 kilometres (21 miles) from downtown, the Halifax West KOA is the perfect mix of convenience and seclusion. Each site comes with full hookups and max-amp electricity. Spend your downtime fishing on the Sackville River, or laze around the on-site swimming pool. The Halifax West KOA is also pet friendly, and there's even an area where you can walk your pup. Amenities around camp include bathrooms, showers, and laundry facilities.

Alternatively, you can escape the city altogether and stay at Graves Island Provincial Park. Located just under an hour from Halifax on a small island, Graves Island Provincial Park features one of the highest-rated campgrounds near Halifax. Sites come with water and electric hookups that support 30-amp electricity. There are few better campgrounds for getting outdoors, with hiking trails, canoeing in Mahone Bay, and swimming opportunities. You'll also find a few basic amenities around camp, including a dump station, showers, and vault toilets.

Things to do in Halifax

Taking a rented big rig into the city can be a daunting task, so it's worth checking traffic levels and parking options before you head out. Surprisingly, Halifax ranks as one of Canada's worst cities for driving, so campers will want to avoid rush hour. If you're looking for somewhere to park in Halifax, your best bet is at Pier 21, Point Pleasant Park, or at one of the lots along the waterfront. You could also park in Dartmouth and take the ferry across to Halifax.

If you want to uncover Halifax's history, you won't want to miss Citadel Hill at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site. This star-shaped fort at the heart of Halifax was first constructed in 1749 and was considered strategically important to the British Navy. Today, Citadel Hill is a living museum where visitors can experience what the fort was like in its prime. Watch the sentries change, catch the noon gun salute, and stick around for a spooky after-hours ghost tour.

Campers can also satisfy their hunger and please history buffs in their crew with a trip to the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market. Remarkably, the Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market is the oldest continuously operating farmer's market in North America, opening over 270 years ago. Today, visitors can pick up local produce, homemade crafts, and a souvenir or two. After you're done shopping, chow down at one of the many restaurants overlooking the harbor.

Prefer to explore the outdoors during your Halifax trailer rental? Then spend the day at Point Pleasant Park. This huge harborside park features woodlands, beaches, and gardens for those who want to avoid touristy hotspots. There's some history here, too—the park is home to the oldest Martello tower in North America, constructed in 1796. When you're hiking along the harbor, make a splash at the swimming beach or take your dog for an off-leash stroll.
