Fundy National Park, Alma
Categories: National Parks, Nature & Parks
Packed full of hiking trails, thick forests, and rugged coastal stretches, Fundy National Park also boasts the highest tides anywhere on the planet. Situated along a namesake bay, the park features a 12 km (7.5 mi) long shoreline with tree-lined cliffs. Go for a wander and discover more than 25 waterfalls within the park, or journey along the 120 km (75 mi) of walking and hiking paths. At low tide, the water level can drop by more than 12 m (40 ft), allowing you to explore vast stretches of exposed seafloor. Be sure to check the tide tables to avoid danger from the returning water.

We did the waterfall trail with the kids. It was a great setting. Peaceful and beautiful. We stopped at the pond next to the visitor and saw two beaver in the midst of building their dams. The kids we... read more »

Beautiful park! Headquarters Campground has group fire pits which added to the fun. Best way to get to know your fellow campers over shared marshmallows. There is a very nice salt water pool near the beach which was very popular with the kids. Downside is all the street lights which make it very hard to see the stars.
Great experience if you time it right and you can get down to the sea floor near the flowerpot rocks. Great picture opportunity. It is a bit of a hike down and back up if you have small children or elderly, but was fun. I think they had buses running for part of the distance.
Such an awesome place! Nicely done. Signs are very clear. Stayed in Point Wolfe camping which was a little packed on top of each other but the beach and nearby hikes made it worth it. I only got a couple days there and did some short hikes, but I felt like it wasn't enough time. Staff was all very nice and helpful. I want to go back!
Beautiful park with lots of hikes and views of the Bay of Fundy. If you stay at Headquarters campsites keep in mind, they keep street lights on all night right above your tent, and you can't see any stars. Mostly RVs and the sites are close together. Kinda felt like camping in the city and was disappointing for a park billed as a Dark Skies location. However, we also stayed at the overflow campsites at Cheticamp South, which was beautiful. No lights, could see the Milky Way, privacy, and a soft grass-moss carpet underfoot. There are only two bathrooms but even on Labor Day weekend we never had to wait. They also have star parties at Cheticamp South where amateur astronomers set up telescopes, which we missed but sounds cool.
Can't get enough of Fundy National Park. The scenery is simply beautiful and with the many trails to try out, there is something for everyone. Bring good shoes, water, and family/friends. The campgrounds are also recommended. Be ready to a more wild experience than your regular camping grounds.
