Rest Ashore

Seaside Camping & Rentals

on the Acadian shores of Baie Ste. Marie
St. Mary's Bay, Municipality of Clare,
Digby County, Nova Scotia


Whether you're planning a road trip with your RV, are new to exploring the outdoors, or are somewhere in between and want to experience oceanfront life, we'd love to meet you. Rest Ashore is as its name states, all about resting, rooting, and rejuvenating on the salty shores of Baie Ste. Marie, Nova Scotia. With just six full-service oceanfront RV sites, we're a small-scale, picturesque campground, that opened mid-summer 2022. 

Are you travelling without an RV? We rent fully furnished and well-appointed RV travel trailers, which are fully equipped with all the comforts of home.

Visit our 'Accommodations & Campsites' page for details.


You're welcome to stay awhile and enjoy all the Clare area has to offer, or if you're only passing through and want to witness a majestic sunset, welcome!
