Quality Visitor Services (QVS) is an independent, non-profit society delivering nationally accepted quality programs to assist the traveling and vacationing public.
QVS assists Nova Scotia accommodation operators in developing, maintaining & improving their accommodations in areas that are meaningful to the traveller while improving thier competitive position in the worldwide tourism industry.
QVS offers three national programs; Canada Select for Hotels, Motels, B&B’s etc; Camping Select for Campgrounds; and Access Canada for standards for people with special needs and disabilities.
Our campground is a member of Camping Select. We had a choice of that or the CAA program. I don’t know CAA for accommodations just doesn’t seem right, and I’m not sure how much clout the CAA program has for campgrounds.
Where would you go looking for a recommendation for a campground? CAA or Camping Select?
Our Camping Select ratings are 2.5 for facilities and 2 for recreation. Compared to other campgrounds in the area (South Shore), we are better than average. (Average for facilities is 2.36 and 1.33 for recreation) I think that’s pretty cool.
