The Islands

A charming coastal camping park overlooking Shelburne Harbour.  A popular place to stay while visiting the historic Town of Shelburne and surrounding area.  Close to the Town of Shelburne you can walk or bike there on the Roseway River trail just outside the park. Prior to becoming an operational Provincial Park in 1958, there was a granite quarry on site and evidence can still be seen in the park.
