Kempt Shore Ocean View Campground & Events

Kempt Shore Ocean View Campground is a scenic 20 acre property, located in the beautiful Kempt Shore of Hants County, Nova Scotia. Open June 1st to Sept 30th, it boasts over 800ft of beach frontage, overlooking the Minas Basin. It is proudly home to the Acoustic Maritime Music Festival, a four day event, held annually on the third weekend in July. This one of a kind festival specifically showcases an eclectic variety of world class Canadian original singer/songwriters. There is a key focus on Maritime talent as acoustically as a festival can possibly be. The campground offers both serviced (water/electric) sites and non-serviced sites. Flush toilets and free showers are also available on location. There is a beautiful fresh water swimming and kayaking lake belonging to the local municipality, (The Kempt Quarry) less than 1km away for all ages. Perfect for cooling off on a hot day. Other amenities nearby.

Kempt Shore Appreciation Campout is always the third weekend of September. This event features Saturday POT LUCK Supper, non-stop field jamming, a washer toss tournament and a bass fishing contest.
