A long ride around and island, with some nice views of the water, but the Roosevelt cottages were underwhelming. Might be of real interest to FDR fans...but we didn't particularly enjoy it. The outdated, poorly produced movie (time to upgrade your equipment and material folks.)looks like it was done in the 1960s. The day came to a less than enjoyable... More

Roosevelt Campobello International Park had been on my Travel Wish List for quite awhile. The trip finally came together. It lived up to expectations. The park was created in 1964. It was funded, administered jointly by the Canadian and American governmental agencies. Having been advised to get to Roosevelt Campobello International Park in time for the opening of the visitor...

We were impressed with our visit to the Roosevelt International Park. The grounds are well kept, there is the aroma of wild roses from the many hedges on the grounds. The Roosevelt cottage and the Hubbard House are both furnished in mostly original period furnishings. A short movie plays often in the welcome center to give a bit of historical... More

I love the Fundy Isles and spent a fantastic day on Campobello Island this weekend. Why bother? This Canadian island was called 'beloved' by Franklin D. Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor, and for good reason. The international park offers free admission to the Roosevelt's summer home and playground. The visitor centre staff were extremely welcoming, professional and knowledgeable- just right-... More

There are some ladders, but only one was a little scary. Definitely plan to go at low tide. We are a group with four 60 plus year olds and had no trouble with the hike over. This is a very pretty place and the volunteers love sharing information on the lighthouse once you get there. Bring cash - 5$ to... More

This is a beautiful International Park between Canada and the US. The restoration of the various buildings and the historical tours offered and wonderful. There are many trails to take for hiking and biking. Lots of other things to visit and learn about in the area, as well. So glad we stopped on our way to New Brunswick and PEI!... More

We spent a great day on Campobello Island and really enjoyed visiting the Roosevelt Summer house, Head Harbor Lightstation and taking a drive out to Liberty Point. The highlight was getting free tickets (first come, first served when the visitor centre opens) for Tea with Eleanor in the Hubbard Cottage. Our friendly hosts, Taunya and Carolyn took turns to serve... More

Before going to this island, I knew that it was the summer home of the Roosevelt's, but I didn't know the history of the place. The house itself has been kept much like it was when FDR and Eleanor vacationed there with there children, except for the addition of electricity (which was added in 1952 after the house was sold)....

We visited here on a drizzle rain Saturday , but the warmth and knowledge of the tour guides more than made up for the weather-- so interesting and learned so much from them about this time in history. This is such an interesting park- corn by two countries- it was such a pleasure to see how these 2 neighbors could... More

We visited in late June and loved this place! We entered the park kind-of late, with 45 minutes to visit FDR's summer house and the neighbor's house. We managed it, but it felt rushed, so give yourself more time. The staff answered my questions, were informative and friendly. The grounds stay open until dark, so my husband and I strolled... More
