Roosevelt Campobello International Park, Campobello Island

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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Campobello Island holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Roosevelt Campobello International Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The Roosevelt Campobello international Park is one of the only American parks on Canadian soil. It focuses on the summer house of the former president of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. His "chalet" is a must-see, notably by its size, but also by memories attached,

  • What a place. Drove and stayed in Lubec to get over to Campobello and check it off our “bucket list.” Folks were very helpful, and we were able to take a special “fun tour” with two exceptional guides...  more »
  • When we went, the cabin where Fdr stayed was closed so we could only see the outside. The welcome center has pictures up to look at and videos to watch There are two lighthouses to see on the property...  more »

  • 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.
