Large screened-in Kitchen Shelter with tables, running water, power and a wood stove. Clean, new and comfortable washrooms/showers. I was bicycle camping and the sites were large and private. The previous night I had spent at New River Beach Provincial Camp site and it was just as comfortable, I was following the coast. I was able to dry out my... More

We have been to Campobello Island many times, but never when this amazing park was open...we love this New Brunswick island in the off or early season. This September, however, we traveled here and were fortunate to find it open. What a gorgeous spot...breathtaking colorful flowers...sweeping grass, trees, and florals down to the sea...surrounded by pristine woodlands...all visible from the... More

this was a wonderful experience....well cared for beautiful place with wonderful grounds. The Roosevelt "cottage" is well worth a tour with the knowledgeable guides. The film at the beginning is a great help in getting to understand the place and the people who lived there.

Be sure to bring your passports. You go through security to enter into Canada. It is a lovely park and Roosevelt's cottage is absolutely beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous and the museum display is very informative. When you enter the cottage you are met by very knowledgeable docents and they give you lots of information about the cottage and the... More

The house and grounds are almost immaculate. Very well cared for. The docents were very knowledgeable and signage and placards give a very detailed about the time FDR, Eleanor, and the family spent there. Try to get reservations to have "Tea with Eleanor". Very well done and informative. They only have room for 20 folks 2 times a day. Great... More

We finally got a chance to experience a "Tea with Eleanor" at the Roosevelt Historic site. It was a wonderful way to spend an hour having tea, cookies and listening to staff members of the historic site relate stories of Eleanor and the Roosevelt families ties to Campobello. The setting was in a home not normally open to the public... More

This was barely over the bridge from Lubec, Me. Into Canda. The grounds are meticulous and the home of the Roosevelts are amazing. The ladies inside the home are a wealth of information and very nice. It is well worth the trip. Make sure to check if open. This year it closed Oct 18. And will reopen in the spring.... More

Everyone should go to this one of a kind park owned jointly by 2 nations. Tour the beautiful cottages and be sure to catch a grounds tour...so much history told with such enthusiasm. The whole park is worth the trip. Nice hiking for every ability, never crowded beaches where you can watch eagles and porpoises, a self I guided bog... More

Loved visiting the Roosevelt Cottage. The Interpretive Centre is very informative, but the best part is visiting the "cottage" itself and seeing the home as it was when the First Family stayed there. A trip back in time. Beautiful!

where nice place to spend few hours and get a look of the furniture of the 1890. The women that are in side the Roosevelt monument are very nice and polite, and they really know everything about the museum and the house. They will tell you many stories about the house and their owners.
