Yes, wild camping (also known as dispersed or backcountry camping) is allowed in certain areas of Nova Scotia. The province is home to numerous provincial parks, wilderness areas, and Crown lands where you can camp for free or with a permit, depending on the location. However, it is essential to follow Leave No Trace principles and camp in designated areas or away from developed sites, trails, and water sources.

Some popular wild camping locations in Nova Scotia include Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site, Cape Breton Highlands National Park, and various provincial parks and wilderness areas. Always check with the park or land management agency for specific regulations and guidelines before setting up camp.
