2015 Season - June 12 – Sept 7
The wooded hilltop campground offers a spectacular view of Guysborough Harbour and features an interpretive display that relates the strange and improbable journey of the Zeno Narrative.
WiFi is available at the admin building and surrounding area. Password required, please see the park receptionist.
The Zeno Narrative is a medieval chronicle that tells of an epic voyage undertaken in the year 1398. A man identified as Henry Sinclair, the Earl of Orkney, left his island home north of Scotland and journeyed west to lands unknown. The narrow steep sided harbour described in the story sounds a lot like Guysborough Harbour and the people who greeted him could have been Mi'kmaq.
No one will ever be sure if Henry Sinclair discovered Nova Scotia a century before John Cabot, but it makes a compelling story. The wooden prow shaped monument relates the story in English, French and Mi'kmaq.
Camping reservations can be made beginning April 2, 2015. See Reservations for details and conditions.
