The Roosevelt Campobello International Park is a MUST SEE! The grounds and 34 room cottage are impeccably maintained, and it is all free of charge! The docents are friendly and very helpful and you can take as much time as you want both inside the Roosevelt's home as well as while strolling along the magnificent grounds. And the museum and...

This unique international park is staffed by rangers from both the US and Canadian park services. The collaboration of the two nations to preserve this historical site is exemplary. The family of Franklin Delano Roosevelt spent summers here, and the the house has been restored by museum curators to the furnishings and decor of the day. A movie presentation details... More

This made for an interesting morning. My wife and I enjoyed the history and the story behind all the cottages that were in the area at the time. We have a 9 and 10 year old and they found it interesting as well. I found all of the workers to be very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Above all of this, there... More

So glad the house was still open, and we enjoyed the rest of the island with its lovely views. Free visit. Skipped the films at the Welcome Center--but the people were very helpful. Excellent, informative guides in the house. Nice wandering on the property. Restaurant lunch and drove to view the lighthouse. Must leave the US from Lubec and do... More

The cottage closed for the season on the day before we visited, but the visitors center has some great displays and there's a very informative film that they'll play for you. You can walk around the grounds and onto the porches and see inside the first floor rooms. We also walked around the yards and to the other cottages on... More

I enjoyed traveling about the park, but was too late to go into the house itself. Very good videos at the visitor center and informational displays.

We were surprised to learn that Roosevelt lived here without electricity, heat and telephones. As a result, he only stayed here one night as President. The Secret Service preferred to have him on a nearby yacht, with all of life's new-fangled necessities. The home has 18 rooms. Big and cottage-like, but not luxurious like the FDR home in Hyde Park,... More

For five years they have been offering a free (or small charge with reservation) Tea with Eleanor. It is tea, home made cookie in one of the cottages, and you are entertained by a knowledgeable ranger on Eleanor Roosevelt. Remember one hour ahead when you cross main to Canada on the tiny bridge or you will be late. Our ranger... More

This attraction was the main reason why my wife wanted to visit New Brunswick. We were disappointed to find out that as president, FDR only visited it a few times. I expected to see a lot of special features designed to accommodate his handicaps but since he did not go there that often, they did not exist. However, the drive... More

This is the second time we visited the park. It's a beautiful setting and the house conveys the sense of life in the period. FDR was an incredible person who championed for the common man. Elenor was no less impressive. It is a great place to bring children so that they can connect with our country's past. A special thanks... More
