We were very impressed with the condition of the Campobello Cottage and grounds. The flowers were beautiful, the walking trails in great shape and the tour guides very well informed. The entire park take sin much more than the Roosevelt family cottage as bike and walking trails meander throughout the park. Hint: skip the self guided tour and let one... More

Thank you to Canada & USA for saving this piece of history. A must see. Staff is great and very knowledgeable. The grounds are beautiful. I can see why the Roosevelt's summered there. Be sure to see the second house, the picture window is amazing.

I don't usually review "destinations" or attractions. The regular guide books do that well enough without my opinion: This place is an exception. A good day trip, if one is staying in Bar Harbor, or Bangor, ME. is a drive up US 1, along the Maine coast. This attraction (I hate calling it that) is about a 3 hour drive... More

This is a park full of history. The Roosevelt house is worth the tour, and the "Tea with Eleanor" daily event is a must do. The hiking and cycling trails are spectacular, and the rock beaches are great for collecting and kayaking.

Campobello was the summer retreat of Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt and I can certainly see why they enjoyed it so much. The home is very open, light and airy and would have been extremely welcoming. This history is this family is fascinating and the docents are knowledgeable and willing to answer all your questions. The setting on the Bay of... More

This park is amazing! The trails are like no where else. Saw Bald Eagles and seals. Once you start hiking you won't want to stop. Trails are well kept. There is such a verity of different type of trails. We spent several days in the park but have not see all it has to offer. We are already planning our... More

A great part of American history with a very informative staff. Make sure to bring your camera. The scenery around the Bay of Fundy is magnificent.

I initially ventured onto Campobello Island planning just to spend the night in the campground. The next morning I stopped by the Park just to quickly check it out. I was extremely pleasantly surprised that a tour of FDR's vacation home was FREE. Likewise "Tea with Eleanor" was FREE. The entire experience was delightful!! I was served tea and cookies... More

Where Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who would become Secretary of the Navy and then President of the United States brought his distant cousin and sweetheart Eleanor Roosevelt to meet his mother, Campobello was the site of intense summer of significance to this family. With six children arriving quickly to their marriage, one dying and one born at Campobello, the Roosevelt Cottage... More

While I enjoyed the house, museum and the beautiful dahlias I would like to recommend the quiet, natural area just across the street from the museum entrance. The hiking is fine with a wide variety of choices. Do try the trail from Raccoon Beach to Liberty Point. Not strenuous, very scenic, often wet. The wooded areas are particularly beautiful. Good...
