Welcome to Murphy's Camping on the Ocean

The Murphys welcome you to come and enjoy our hospitality and all that Mother Nature has to offer at one of the most scenic & interactive campgrounds in Nova Scotia.

We offer both RV and Tent sites, each having a unique set of characteristics. Whether you enjoy a site just meters from the Atlantic Ocean, or something a little more secluded, you will surely find a site that suits your preferences.

"Thank you for the most enjoyable two days I have had in a very long time! The Murphys were the best hosts one could ever expect to find. Amazing lobster, great mussels, fabulous conversations, were just some of the highlights. PLUS cribbage lessons!


- David Mello | Boston, Massachusetts

Communal Campfires & Mussel Boils

Relax at our community campfire with a plate of complimentary freshly steamed mussels and listen to the strum of a guitar, tales of local folklore, and the nearby waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

Scenic Boat Tours

Experience our beautiful coastal islands and wildlife during a 1.5 hour, 5 km scenic boat tour. You will witness breathtaking views of cliffs, beaches, coves, and sea shanties. And you will experience marine life such as osprey, eagles, seals, porpoise, and sometimes even whales!


We are a pet-friendly campground. All we ask is that pets be kept under your control at all times and that you please clean up after them.

Kayaking Paradise

Kayaking is so enjoyable here, with an amazing array of ever changing seascapes and an archipelago of islands stretching all along our unspoiled coastline that allow you to paddle for hours without seeing another soul. Kayak rentals are available nearby.

No Deposit Required!

A valid credit card number is required to confirm your reservation but your credit card will not be charged unless you fail to adhere to our cancellation policy.
