“Do Not Miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Anchorage Provincial Park was very empty during our stay in August & we would like to see more people using it on a regular basis as it is truly a hidden gem. The bathrooms were clean, the grounds well maintained & the scenery spectacular. The camping sites for trailers are very open with many spots that are secluded around the edges of the park. Fire pits are located at each site & are built with cooking over an open fire in mind. The kitchen shelters are extremely useful as they provide a spot to wash dishes as well as cook & eat a meal during inclement weather. Beaches are close by & beautiful Our teenage boys were happy to stay on the island & the road into Anchorage provided the perfect spot for them to longboard. Not once did we hear "we are bored". That says it all!!

“The BEST Provincial Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I have been to a number of provincial parks, and have been consistently happy with them.

This wonderful park located on Grand Manan is the best by far.

The park itself is lovely and very well maintained. The bathrooms are very clean and the showers are hot and spacious. There is also a shelter area where people can go and use provided facilities to prepare meals and spend time.

The staff was also helpful and very approachable.

The real highlight here though, is the parks location. Grand Manan in general is one of Canada's hidden gems, but the the oceanfront located near to the park is particularly beautiful. Drive five minutes down the road to see amazing cliffs. Drive five minutes the other way and you will find a quaint village with great shops and food.

I cannot recommend this park and the island it is on enough.

“Beautiful scenery, nice walking trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Although we are Grand Manan residents, we take advantage of the Anchorage walking trails and beautiful beach as often as we can. Its woodland trail to Red Point, the walk along the ponds, and Rotary BBQs are all part of the allure of this clean, well-equipped park. Bring a picnic and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful, with no crowds!

“A special place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Well spaced, hedged camping spots, trails, a covered cooking area, and clean washrooms. Short walk to volcanic sand beach. From the Ferry ride to the island, to the bakery, to a visit and walk around Whitehead island, its a beautiful place on earth! Swallowtail and the cliffs nearby area trip not to miss as well! Whale watching is great too! Don't forget to buy dulse to bring home!
