Harbour Light Campground was first established in 1964.
Minnie and Samuel Smith owned the land and thought it would be a great place to build a campground. Starting small, Sam and Minnie developed the site and soon found they had a thriving community on their hands. They passed the campground to their daughter Eleanor and son-in-law Ron MacDonald. Ron’s son, Cameron, is the current owner and a mainstay at the campground. What started as a small business with 20 or so sites, grew over the years to have 150+ sites that the campground boasts today.

As a fourth generation business, Harbour Lights is in our blood. The current owner, Cameron, along with his four children were largely raised at the campground. We gained an appreciation for family business and the strong sense of familial community that characterizes our campground.

In 2011 our campground was awarded the Pineapple Award from Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia. This award is presented to an individual or business that went above and beyond the call to service. The award is based on stories/reviews clients submit.
