Welcome to Nova Scotia! Take a deep breath of our fresh salt air and relax, you have arrived and the Campground Owners Association of Nova Scotia (COANS) extends our warmest maritime welcome to you! Whether you are just beginning to discover the special pleasures of Nova Scotia or are returning again to enjoy one of your favorite vacations, we invite you explore the many facets of our beautiful Province. Camping allows you to become part of the landscapes, seascapes, and culture of the area you choose to venture into, but please be reminded that it is illegal to camp anywhere in Nova Scotia outside a licensed campground. As private campground owners, we are dedicated to providing you with a safe, secure, high quality camping experience. Our members offer a wide variety of settings for your stay; do you prefer an oceanfront park or a secluded forest site? Looking for a very remote location, or perhaps a park offering you convenient access to our capital city of Halifax? We are blessed with an abundance of licensed, inspected and rated campgrounds - insuring that you will always be able to find a comfortable location for a night, a week, or a season! The Campground Owners Association of Nova Scotia strives to offer you a selection of parks with high quality facilities and services, and in doing so we support regulations that guarantee the same. We ask that you abide by the regulations and stay with people who are in the business of making your vacation safe, enjoyable, and all that you imagined it could be. Nova Scotia is a dream vacation, and we at COANS will do all we can to make your dreams come true! Sincerely Yours in Camping; COANS Board of Directors www.campingnovascotia.com
