Well situated within minutes of the ferry terminal in St. John, there are plenty of sites here. They are decent in their placement and the nearby showers/restrooms are clean and well maintained. The attached park is lovely with a trail around the lake and the campsite has an overall view of St. John.

Basically, the trailer campsite is just an open gravelled parking lot. Good sized spots, water and hooks are well located, sites are flat and easily accesible, washrooms and showers are clean. Bring bikes to travel around as there are lots of great spots to fish, or trails to walk but not close to the camp sites. We didn't go to... More

We pulled in here with much hesitation. But we wanted to be near the center of town and conveniences. We found the price to be in line with others in NB and the gate workers friendly and kind. The spaces for the RVs was typical row parking, with gravel driveways and parking pads. Very few trees, but flat and serviceable.... More

This will be our 4th summer to return to Rockwood Park for camping. We have a motor home and are always given the choice of a great campsite. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We usually stay for a month but end up extending it by a few weeks. We bring our dogs with us, Bogie and Kiefer, and... More

Our GPS found this park for us while traveling through the state. At the entrance we were certain the GPS was wrong as it looks like an ordinary albeit beautiful park. There are very few signs telling you how to actually get to the campground so you can imagine our surprise when we finally came to an office to register.... More

We already became suspicious upon check-in when it said „no refunds“. By the time we got to our campsite we knew what that was all about: somewhere behind the campground are railway tracks, so it is rather noisy. In addition, the campsites are fairly small with no privacy. Of course, you have to keep in mind that this campground is... More

Tent camping: The view is of oil refining plants. The noises include: 1am trains, traffic, industrial noises. The sites are tiny. TINY. The bathrooms are too small for the population. It's removed from the nice parts of the park. The Zoo is 10 minutes away via the highway. No grills. The firepits are rocks on some sites. The camper sites... More

We arrived in Saint John not knowing for sure where we would be staying. We had tried for weeks before to secure a confirmed reservation at Rockwood Park Campground and no one ever answered the phone. Left us wondering if it had opened for the season yet. With the campground being inside city limits it seemed like a convenient location... More

We camped here in late May and there were only about 10 sites that were occupied. I would say it is a 3+. The best part about it was the location - close to Saint John for a day trip (although not really much to see in the town really) - and right in Rockwood Park which is a very... More

Rockwood Park is a city park with a beautiful little lake for swimming, they also have horseback riding. We stayed here is a motorhome for two nights and really enjoyed St. Johns. The campground also had a concert in the open with two delightful gentlemen playing the electric piano and guitar. We really enjoyed our time here. It is a... More
