The Ovens Natural Park

Almost 200 acres located on the ocean, The Ovens Natural Park features some of the provinces most beautiful campsites, and is known worldwide for its dramatic seacliffs trail that leads to the seacaves or 'Ovens' for which the park was named. There are several overlooks along the trail which offer excellent views of beautiful Lunenburg Harbour, as well as several offshore islands (one of these islands is home to seals, when they are not hanging out on the Ovens Point). Several caves can be entered and the photo ops are quite amazing. The history of the caves, the gold rush at The Ovens in 1861 where gold can still be panned on the beach, equipment can be bought or rented in the small craft shop, and we also maintain a small gold rush museum. Fun, informative and the natural beauty is amazing.
