Description & Services
Information Often described as feeling like a "town within a town", Whidden Park offers a camping and cottage experience like no other! The gentle Brierly Brook winds its way through our 15 acre parkland and downtown Antigonish is just off our doorstep!  
Leave the car behind as you explore the shops on Main Street, dine on fine local seafood, and take in some great live entertainment before heading back to your site for an evening around the fire!  
Our 154 campsites come serviced or unserviced. Power is rated for 30 Amps and the water is potable. A well equipped dumpstation is available free of charge for campers in sites without sewer hookup.  
5 air conditioned Cottages offer guests a comfortable and clean "mini-home away from home". Each features two bedrooms, a complete kitchen with cutlery, flatware, and cookware supplied. A separate living area with TV offers a port of refuge and relaxation after a long day of exploring. 
For those looking for the camping experience without all the hassle of setting up, Whidden Park also offers on-site RV rentals in the form of two camper trailers. We take care of all the hard work ahead of time, so no hauling, backing-in, or leveling - just bring your own linens and towels and move on in!
