Nice surprise minutes from Halifax
Aug. 2021 • Friends
A delightful find just minutes to Halifax. Stayed with friends at this well kept up campground, delighted to find it so organized, clean, and wonderful quiet despite being fully booked. A paved roadway runs through the park, making it easy going for kids on bikes, and it was nice to hear the passing trains in the evening. We will definitely be going back.

Misinformation of location
Jul. 2019
Please be advised Laurie Park is 4949 Hwy #2, Grand Lake, N.S.
however it is no where near Mount Uniacke which is on Hwy #1 N.S. and also has Uniacke House and park grounds.
They are both wonderful areas to visit with History of prominent men who settled in Nova Scotia and contributed to the development and importance of this province.

Wonderful August trip
Aug. 2018 • Couples
Wonderful camp sites with many washrooms and places you can shower. There is also a day area for non-campers with a beach, a trail that passes some large rocks, and multiple picnic spots. This park is well maintained and I can't think of a better way to spend some time outdoors. The staff are also very responsive and do make sure that quiet times are enforced. This is a perfect spot for families, as well as dogs.

Camping trip
Jul. 2018 • Couples
This is the first time I've visited the park since the "big Reno".
We haul a 17' TT (which is small compared to today's monsters).
The main roads are all paved now, which does cut down on the dust. The sites however, are mostly gravel, and very small and quite close together. There is also little privacy as they are not deep, treed sites like you would expect.
This campground is also close to a rail line, so if a full night's sleep is a must, be advised that the trains start before daybreak, and they are loud.
Found the lake quite nice. Great for kayaking. There is no beach area, as such, but there are several places to swim. May be difficult for small children. And water shoes, I'd say are a must.
Campground is close to the city, with easy access to highways.

Camping
Jul. 2017 • Family
This past summer we took our 4 year old son on his first tent camping trip here and he loved it. The park was very nice, with access to the lake for swimming. Not all the campsites had direct access to the water but ours did. There were toilets as well as a pretty nice shower house. They sold fire wood and ice on site as well. There was also a grocery store about 20 minuets away too. I highly recommend this park!

Self-Serve - NO STAFF - Good?
Sep. 2017 • Couples
We had never stopped at a self-serve camp before, but Laurie was our first and it was good, but odd? We never spoke to anyone working there except for a quick moment to buy some firewood, who still would not take any money. You MUST call ahead to reserve or be at the mercy of a small yellow phone to make arrangements. It's a bit odd, but it was ok. I can't imagine if it got busy, so it seems best to be mindful of the season. The park itself was great! It was clean, well kept, clean bathrooms, great sites, and was pretty quiet. The separation between sites was, I would say, above average. The location of the park, being close to Dartmouth, was incredibly handy. The firepits were typical and the wood was decent. Finding power might be difficult, if you are after that. The paths around were amazing; some of the most relaxing mornings I have had. The bathroom itself had a great view. It sure beats getting a hotel room. Go!

Wow, what a great place
Aug. 2017
We stayed here for 2 nights on site 61. If you have a pre-existing reservation there is no check in process and you can proceed directly to your campsite. Because this is a self registration park meaning that there are no on site staff to help you check into the park, you have to use a gate code to enter. With a reservation already made you have the gate code which allows you to bypass the phone procedure that is necessary for non reservation guests. Our site was clean and of decent size. We were nervous to stay here because we thought there were no on site staff to help you. Turns out there is a campground host that lives on site to help. Firewood and ice is self service. You basically place money into an envelope and drop into a drop box. If you are in the area this campground is a must try.

We always camp in the walk-in tent sites. The sites are private, spacious and clean. The firepits are large and has a great swimming area. The condition of washrooms/showers are better than a lot of hotels

Good Canadian outdoors camping park
Jun. 2016
This park is nice for camping, but I don't believe you can just go there for the day. The lake is surrounded by pine tree and classic Canadian looking swimming areas.

The unfortunate downside is that it is a few miles from Oakfield park which has the same, and more. Nearby Oakfield has the (Same) lake, big field for volleyball or catch and wooded areas for BBQ'ing and a small but nice beach.
