Just across the harbor from Shelburne, The Islands Provincial Park (tel. 902/875-4304) offers 62 quiet campsites on 500 waterside acres from May through September. Some sites are right on the harbor, with a front-row seat and great views of the historic village; ask about those sites' availability first. There are no hookups for RVs here, another reason to consider it as a quiet overnight getaway. Campsites here cost C$23 apiece.
