When planning out our recent trip to the Bay of Fundy and Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, we searched for a family-friendly campground fairly close to the park. While the walk-in sites at Cape Chignecto seemed appealing, it was not something we wanted to do with three young children. We finally decided on ADDA Campground, run by the community of Advocate Harbour and the closest campground to the park.
We loved how much the campground had to keep us busy. In addition to a playground, there was a basketball court (and basketballs were available in the office to borrow) as well as a full baseball field. We spent quite a lot of time as a family playing wiffle ball, and Five Ball and Five of Hearts even had the opportunity to participate in a community tee ball game on the last day of our stay.
In addition to Cape Chignecto Provincial Park just minutes away, we found quite a lot to see and do nearby. The town of Advocate Harbour itself has some nice walking trails along the Bay of Fundy shoreline as well as paths through salt marshes and past scenic farms. There are also lighthouses nearby with their own scenic views and hikes.
We couldn’t have asked for a more family-friendly place to stay then ADDA Campground. We felt fortunate to have briefly been a part of the lovely and involved community of Advocate Harbour, and it felt great that camping there kept our travel dollars in the community to reinvest for locals and tourists alike.
