Where to Begin •
The unique geology and dramatic beauty of the Ovens Park has drawn a diverse group of people to this lovely destination year after year. People seem to find their own resonance and releases here at the home of Nova Scotia’s oldest legend (Indian Cave), here among the 150 year-old scars and implements of the 1861 gold rush, where the sea still echoes of vague references to rum-running (not so rare in this area) and Captain Kidd, and where the Cunard family laid claim to most our beach and then eventually removed it. Wow!
• Camping on the Ocean •
During our 75 years of camping experience, families have been drawn to the incredible beauty, diverse geography, fascinating history, and spiritual solace that make The Ovens Park so unique. The smell of campfires amid the historic setting takes one back to a simpler time, a welcome respite in a world that’s constantly changing.

Our rustic and well appointed camping cabins give you the most trouble-free home base from which to experience all the natural, historical, and cultural activities that the park presents. Whether you’re a geologist coming to view the Ovens Anticline or a nature lover just taking in the ocean air, the park provides a one-of-a-kind adventure and sense of discovery for you.
All of our cabins and campsites are a short walk from our main office, restaurant, general store, gift shop, and museum. Our oceanfront restaurant is proud to serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner and provides live music in the evenings six nights a week from the end of June until Labour Day. The Ovens Restaurant is a licensed and is best known for its charming atmosphere and one-of-a-kind beer-battered fish and chips. Whether you enjoy a warm campfire by the ocean or our live music you will be transformed by the solace and beauty of the Ovens Natural Park.
