Roosevelt Campobello International Park, Campobello Island
(4.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
See the summertime retreat of the Roosevelt family, and discover the charms of the place FDR referred to as the 'beloved island' at Roosevelt Campobello International Park. Now a park administered jointly by Canada and the United States, the retreat's focal point remains the summer cottage where Franklin D Roosevelt and his family spent their holidays before he became the 32nd President of the United States. The cottage now contains a museum dedicated to the President, First Lady, and their family, with many rooms remodeled to look as they did in the early 20th century. The surrounding 1,134 ha (2,800 acre) park offers a wealth of walking routes, forestland, headlands, and beaches.

  • Very beautiful setting. Very knowledgeable tour guides. Be sure to go through the house and gardens. This is in New Brunswick so US passport required.

  • We visited Roosevelt's summer cottage, if you can call 34 rooms and 10,000 square feet a cottage. It truly is a step back in time and the furnishings are very spartan, considering the wealth that exis...  more »

  • Free access to this park with easy boarder crossing via bridge. Bring your passport. You can go in to the FDR house and get free mini info session. Not one for tours or museum but a 5 min walk around the house while riding our bikes around the island was perfect.
  • My husband David and I visited the park on 7/20/16. While there we went on a guided tour and were so glad we did. Peter W., our guide/van driver was so knowledgeable and it was very evident that he is passionate about sharing the history of the sites that he shows. We highly recommend seeking him out when visiting the Park, it is a wonderful addition to the experience. Our thanks to Peter and all the staff that we came in contact with, you were all so very informative, polite, and courteous
  • A highlight of our 50th anniversary trip to the Maritimes. My wife would love a "cabin" at the lake like this. Wonderful tour by knowledgeable guides. Well kept grounds.
  • Great camping. Sites are private, ocean views are beautiful. Good hiking nearby.
  • This is a beautiful gem of a destination that gets over-looked. Entrance is free. Bring your passport as it does have both US and Canadian boarder crossing. The FDR estate is beautiful. The trail from Liberty Point to the Sunsweep Sculpture is a must. Breathtaking views are available at every turn. There is a lot to do on this small island. You can do most of the highlights within an afternoon. However, if you want to experience most of the park, plan a full day. The dirt road system through the park is ideal for biking riding. There is a staffed Information building when you arrive on the island. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful with assisting in planning out your stay. The drive is shortly over 3 hours from Bar Harbor.
