#1 of 79 in Sightseeing in New Brunswick
Historic Site Nature / Park
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.

  • This was an unexpected stop on our trip, but it was a highlight. Allison, our tour guide, was the best part. She was incredibly knowledgeable, personable, funny and enthusiastic! My fiancee and I loved this park and hope to see more of it on our next trip when we have more time. Thanks for the great memories, Allison!
  • Learned a lot of history that I never knew. Nice visitor center and helpful guides. Beautiful location.
  • A great slice of history, but when I visited in April, 2017, the park was not officially open for the season yet. The homestead was in disrepair, sad to say, with several windows boarded up, the front porch is total disrepair and the front door boarded up as well. The grounds and view were beautiful and I was able to peek into several windows. Worth the trip, but wish it was open for a longer season so some of us could avoid the crowds as I prefer.
  • Third Trip. We had Tea with Eleanor then rode our bikes for an hour on the island. Fun, warm and beautiful views.
  • Beautiful park with lots of trails for hiking. Very well maintained.
