Description & Services
Information Come out with your family and explore wonderful destinations in Five Islands and Economy! 
Five Islands Provincial Park 
Rising majestically from the shores of the Bay of Fundy, Five Islands Provincial Park is one of Nova Scotia's premiere outdoor destinations. Situated 24 km (15 mi) east of Parrsboro, the park features 90-metre (300-ft.) sea cliffs overlooking the world's highest tides, a spectacular setting for camping or any of the many opportunities that abound for hiking, beachcombing, rock collecting, and clam digging. Note tide times before walking on the mud flats as the Fundy tides rise very quickly. Red Head Trail offers four of the best views of the islands and the basin. Enjoy hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on the west side of Economy Mountain with 5.2 km (3.2 mi) of tracked trails, which are marked and mapped. Although there are no facilities or services offered in the winter months, the park is open for winter recreational activities. The park road is normally plowed to the parking lot near the start of the Economy Mountain Trail.
