Campobello

  • New Brunswick, Canada

  • Campobello Island is a beautiful island off the Coast of Maine but actually located in New Brunswick, Canada on the Bay of Fundy. It is one of three of the Fundy Islands; the “Fundy sisters” as they are sometimes called with the other “sisters” being Grand Manan and Deer Island.

    The Island is close to Lubec Maine, Eastport Maine, St. Stephen New Brunswick and can be accessed by car or by ferry service provided by Eastcoast Ferries. To visit Campobello Island from the U.S., you must bring your passport.

    The easiest way to get to the island is the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Bridge from Lubec. Another route includes a couple of ferry rides of less than a half hour, and is highly recommended for either to or from the island. This alternative begins in the small New Brunswick town of L’Etete, about a half hour east of the border crossing in Calais, and a short drive down a peninsula from historic St. George. A free ferry runs sixteen hours a day to and from Deer Island. You’ll drive the twelve-mile length of Deer Island to pick up another ferry to Wilson’s Beach on Campobello. This ferry leaves every hour on the half-hour and runs from late June to mid-September, ten hours a day.

    Campobello Island has breathtaking views and unspoiled nature at it’s best. In addition to hiking along the trails at Herring Cove Provincial Park or Roosevelt Campobello International Park, you can visit the summer home of FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt, taste the fresh Lobster, walk along the beaches, visit Mullholland Lighthouse, Head Harbour Lightstation, or West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in nearby Lubec, Maine.

    Campobello Sightseeing has a van that leaves the Roosevelt Park Visitor Center at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm daily from June 15 until September 15. The van takes up to fifteen people on informative and interesting two-and-a-half-hour tours of the island.
