Located on the south shore of Nova Scotia approx 10 mins from the historic town of Shelburne, NS. We have a beautiful waterfront property located approx 6 kms down the west side of the gorgeous Shelburne Harbour, just north of Gunning Cove and facing the Sandy Point Lighthouse to our east. You are welcome to sit and enjoy our views from our private 90 ft wharf (a walk of approx 200' from your overnight spot). The water is mostly deep and calm with a predictable daytime breeze. Most days you will be able to spot our resident mammal friends, Sealy-Dion and Sealy-Dan along with great blue herons, king fishers and many ducky friends. If you are lucky the porpoises may be feeding in our area too. Shelburne Harbour is very deep and thus many large vessels from the Canadian Coast Guard or large fishing trawlers can be observed. We personally do not swim off our shore but jumping off the wharf is a longtime tradition held by many of the locals...lol If you would rather wade in or kayak, the water is accessible at the wharf. For swimming, we prefer the beautiful white sand beach only 9kms further along the Lighthouse route where you might be the only one on it! This is a new home for us and we are still discovering much of the province. What we know for sure is that the area is beautiful, quiet and welcoming. We hope we can add to your experience as you discover the true south shore of Nova Scotia. We are approx 2.5 hrs southwest of Halifax and 1.5 hrs southwest of Lunenburg, the home of the Bluenose II.
Your overnight parking spot is grass and gravel, mostly level and not shaded. You will have many surrounding trees, berry bushes and flowering plants. You are welcome to enjoy the views and waterfront from our wharf or wander the acreage. Most mornings are clear but we do get occasional fog that clears with the sunshine. We have a family of deer (4) that may occasionally graze on the property. We have a very friendly but large red dog named Sonny that usually keeps them away. Inquire if you have a well behaved pet.
no generators, 15 amp provided
no dumping...inquire about water/garbage/recycling disposal
prefer no smoking but inquire if occasional
prefer departure by 11am if not otherwise arranged
From the main paved road the exit is an approx 400 ft drive on a well packed and travelled gravel road. Our driveway entrance is straight ahead from the road exit. The driveway is private and approx 100ft of hard pack grass and gravel that you can drive straight into. There is a Y intersection that allows you to turn around or backout. Best suited for truck campers and Class B RV's. Unfortunately, it is too difficult for tow behind travel trailers or 5th wheel trailers greater than 25 ft combined to turn around in the space. Please refer to the posted restriction of 25 ft or less.
We can welcome guests most days between the Canadian May long weekend and through early Oct if we are not out exploring our new home province!

Our hosts could not have been better! They went far beyond our expectations. Wonderful couple to spend time with. Property and spot for the night were spectacular. We hope to see them again in the future .
I recommend Blackpool, I had a great time chatting with them and brought them a delicious apple pie from THE BIG APPLE
They helpes me out with the drone who acted irradically and land in water! They were extremly nice and i felt as i was meeting a past friend!
Thx for everything!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with this very friendly couple. Their property is exceptional with a beautiful waterfront view.
The parking spot was flat , spacious and had a great view too
I’d highly recommend coming to this host.
Our hosts gitty210 were nothing short of fabulous....and the location equally so!!
They not only made us feel very welcome while we were there, but Mrs-Gitty210 provided us with a ton of very useful travel tourist info, for both the trip there as well as after we left (both of which we found very helpful).
They have a lovely location on the waterway and the grounds of their property are park-like. We sat on their deck with them until after dark and passed an excellent evening of nice conversation. They are very experienced RVs, who were enthusiastic in sharing all kinds of useful information to us newcomer RVers. We would highly recommend this location, not only (for us) as a way to become familiar with the Kawartha lakes area, but also to meet like-minded friendly folks.
We Stayed at the beautiful home of gitty210. It was fantastic! We enjoyed sititng in front of the lake enjoying a glass of wine with the view!
The place is amazing but we are wordless about the host. They make us feel like we were at home!
Will repeat that experience anytime if we pass by.

This warm, friendly couple made me so welcome and even let me stay a second night. They have an outstanding lake front location and a beautiful big red dog. I would love to meet up with them again, either on the road or at their home. Happy trails...
As relatively new boondockers we aren’t quite sure what we will find when we reach our destination. Upon our arrival at Blackpool, we were greeted by Sonny the hosts’ well behaved dog. The hospitality extended to us was unexpected but certainly appreciated. Bruce and Birgit are seasoned boondockers who generously shared many helpful hits with us.
It would be wonderful to meet this couple on the road.
Bryan and Daun
We really enjoyed our stay with Brigitte and Bruce. Loved sitting on the deck enjoying a cup of coffee and sharing camping and ROADTREK experiences. Great couple, great site.
Tried to contact Gitty210 in April and in July. We received no response to our e-mails. Wonder if they are still accepting boondocking guests. We have a 27 foot travel trailer with solar panels, and no pets, so would be easily accommodated.
