Porters Lake Provincial Park, Nova Scotia

Park Information:
Only minutes from metropolitan Halifax/Dartmouth, Porters Lake Provincial Park is the perfect escape from the urban rush, yet the park is close enough for day trips to visit the many attractions found in the metro area. The quiet lakeside setting offers a wide range of outdoor opportunities including camping, boating, canoeing, water skiing, fishing, and swimming.

Facilities and Services:
Hurricane Juan had a great impact upon the once predominantly spruce/fir woodlands of the camp grounds of the park.

The campground has been re-designed with larger campsites that take advantage of the new views capes and shoreline access. Campsites previously enclosed by the softwoods are now more open and provide a better appreciation for the surrounding lake. As the new vegetation leafs-out, the central hill that separates the main loop of the campground will provide a natural barrier so campers can still enjoy a sense of isolation from the remainder of the campground.

•Fewer campsites will mean more separation between campers,
•New campsite design will produce generally larger camp pads,
•New opportunities include shoreline walk-in tent sites,
•Campsites capable of handling modern trailer and RV units
•Improved access roads.
The new design provides for future enhancements. Our next focus will be on the Day-use area and a shoreline trail system.

Porters Lake Provincial Park is open from May 21 - Oct. 11 (for the 2010 season). The park has 80 campsites, a picnic area, boat launch and trailer dump station. The small unsupervised beach is ideal for family fun.

Although there are no electrical hook ups on the loop sites water and vault toilets are conveniently located throughout the campground. Electrical hook-ups are available are 10 new RV pull through sites. Accessible flush toilets and showers are available
