2015 Season - May 15 to Sept. 7
Park Info: Nestled between two lakes in the heart of southern Nova Scotia, this 114 ha (280 acre) park offers walking trails in a hardwood setting, canoeing, swimming, and camping for all those who like to enjoy the outdoors.
The quiet beauty of nature is evident everywhere. The shoreline holds some of Nova Scotia's rare plants, and the lakes have both brown and speckled trout, chain pickerel, and Atlantic salmon.
Camping reservations can be made beginning April 2, 2015. See Reservations for details and conditions.
Join the Friends of Ellenwood Lake Provincial Park (FOEP) to view the Geminid Meteor showers. The park has very minimal light pollution, so it is the perfect place to view this event. In 2015, the Geminids will peak between December 13 and 14. A waxing crescent Moon (Moon's phase after a New Moon) will create good conditions for viewing the shower. Meet at Ski Cabin/ Beach House. We will be serving chili, buns and hot drinks in the cabin. This is a free event but donations to FOEP are welcome. Contact Stephen at (902) 742-6252 or visit www.friendsofellenwoodpark.ca.
