End of Operational Season at Camping and Day-Use Parks
Visitors may continue to access parks during the off-season; however, please be aware there are no services available. Washroom facilities are not available outside of the operational season. Visitors must continue to follow park rules, including keeping dogs on leashes. Visitors are reminded to use the pack-it-in, pack-it-out principle and take their trash home with them. Gates will be closed so parking may be affected in some locations.
Please be advised there is no access to the beach at Blomidon until further notice. The lower set of stairs to the beach have been removed for the winter season due to storm damage.
Please be advised construction will be taking place at Crystal Crescent Provincial Park to make improvements to parking. Please use caution and stay out of the construction area.
