Nova Scotia's Family Operated Private Campgrounds

The Campground Owners Association of Nova Scotia ("COANS") is a not for profit trade association and consumer marketing organization. Formed in 1982, COANS is membership driven and represents the interests of Nova Scotia's owned and operated Campground/RV Park businesses.

Our friendly personal service will make you feel right at home. Most of our parks offer both overnight and seasonal camping and many accept reservations year round. 

The Campground Owners Association of Nova Scotia supports its members by:

  • providing consumer marketing and promotions primarily through online and print channels;
  • negotiating group purchasing discounts with industry suppliers;
  • co-operating with other industry associations to address regulatory concerns imposed by all levels of government;
  • encouraging service excellence in hospitality;
  • commissioning primary market research;
  • and promoting good business practices through education and industry standards.

Welcome to beautiful Nova Scotia!


Nova Scotia is located on the East Coast of Canada, and offers some of the most scenic coastlines in the world.  Home to the iconic Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, world-renowned Cabot Trail, and record breaking high tides of the Bay of Fundy, "Canada’s Ocean Playground" has plenty to experience and offer.

Nova Scotia is a dream vacation, and our Campgrounds and RV Parks will do all they can to make your dreams come true!
