This site is both unique and unusual in that it is jointly and equally operated by the Canadian and United States governments. For anyone with only a passing knowledge of American history and a knowledge of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, this is a place so integral to their lives before and during the Roosevelt presidency and, therefore, a must see....

Free! Beautiful homes and flower gardens. The museum showed interesting facts about the Roosevelt family and the guides gave interesting comments about the family and how they lived.

You simply must experience "tea with Eleanor." Carolyn & Debbie were our hostesses and storytellers. Both of these women were very knowledgeable about Eleanor Roosevelt and truly loved what they were doing. The tea (King Cole) and cookies were simply delicious. Be sure to tour the cottage and the Hubbard House but make sure you take time to explore the... More

Ah, the beauty of Campobello is something you have to experience. DO remember the passports, as nobody gets a "pass" during these dangerous times! Homeland Security takes no excuses, as it should be, and you're at risk of missing a wonderful experience if you don't bother. Take the tour of the cottage and the grounds. It's fascinating, this story of... More

The charming house and grounds are very well maintained and the stationary guides are very knowledgeable and passionate. A most fitting monument to two truly great people.

Very well tended grounds, informative and pleasant staff, dripping with history, tons of anecdotes. Interestingly, not as regal as expected, just a pleasant (albeit huge) summer cottage.

We biked around the entire park on a Sunday afternoon and had a phenomenal time. The island is fairly hilly, so I had to walk my bike a couple of times, but the views were well worth the effort. Traffic was minimal which made biking easier and safer. I'm sure in the summer it gets busier, but on September 1... More

This trail is fantastic. It follows the coast line mostly with breath taking views of islands and oceans. Bald eagles flew right over my head. Wild flowers waist high. Seals in the ocean .
