We visited the Franklin Roosevelt summer home on Campobello Island and visited at least one light house while we were there. We were there with small children and were camping elsewhere. If you are visiting on a side trip, plan on a half day visit.

Roosevelt Campobello International Park is both beautiful and inspiring. The grounds are surrounded by hiking trails that carve through the countryside and emerge at scenic overlooks along the coast, including Mulholland Lighthouse, while Roosevelt's Cottage - a beautifully preserved home - is its centerpiece. I recommend taking the tour, as you'll learn all kinds of interesting facts about the Roosevelt... More

The park includes the FDR's family "cottage" where he summered in his youth. He seldom visited after the 1920s. The home itself was closed when I visited, but I enjoyed the grounds and local paths the family used for recreation. The larger park includes rock and sand beaches; cliffs and forest. Very scenic and well worth a few days. Boating,... More

Anyone with a love of history or nature needs to stop by this park! The only park in the world operated jointly by two nations, visitors can tour the 34 room summer "cottage" of Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt, as well as enjoy the expansive acreage for hiking and biking. It's really a one-of-a-kind experience that gives visitors a glimpse of... More

My wife and I arrived early and made reservations for tea in one of the homes which is free, but limited seating. Do that first thing when you arrive. It was a high-light of our visit. The main home is lovely that is self guided, but there are docents who are knowledgeable about the home and the time period. Great... More

Loved seeing the family resort. Only President to have a summer home outside of the US. Didn't have enough time to fully enjoy it, but hope to go back.

The former resort of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt makes this location a very historical and beautiful site.

A remarkable step back in time walking through the Roosevelt's' fully restored private summer home. The history inside is palpable. Short pleasant drive from Lubec, ME. So, if you brought your passport, go the extra distance and visit this place.

So we drove up the entire coast of Maine and went to Campobello Island and then St Andrews,Canada as well. So - this was a long journey to say the least. We really wanted to check out Campobello....neither of us had either been there. We were so happy we made the trip and I have to say we would both... More

Unfortunately the FDR mome was closed for the season but the trip was stll well worth while. The visitor canter has lots of displays including photos of the times that FDR and his family visited. There are also extensive grounds to visit. There are two videos that give you a good sense of the life and times of the Island... More
