Campobello Island, New Brunswick

4.3
Campobello Island is an island located at the entrance to Passamaquoddy Bay, adjacent to the entrance to Cobscook Bay, and within the Bay of Fundy. The island is one of the Fundy Islands and is part of Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada. Campobello Island is also the name of a rural community including the entire Parish of Campobello. The island has no road connection to the rest of Canada; though there is a bridge connecting it to nearby Lubec, Maine in the United States. Reaching mainland Canada by car without crossing an international border is possible only during the summer season and requires two separate ferry trips, the first to nearby Deer Island, then from Deer Island to L'Etete.Measuring 14km long and about 5km wide, it has an area of 39.6km2. The island's permanent population in 2011 was 925.EmploymentThe majority of residents are employed in the fishing/aquaculture or tourism industries. The two major tourist attractions on the island are Herring Cove Provincial Park and Roosevelt Campobello International Park. The latter was created in 1964 and was officially opened by U.S. President Lyndon Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Lester Pearson in 1966.

  • Roosevelt summer home tours are good. Easy to get to the island from Eastern Maine. Several good restaurants available for lunch or dinner. Ferry across to St Stephen and St Andrews leaves from here. One of the better ferry rides crossing the bay. Can't think of a better way to spend a summer day.
  • Disappointing restaurant. Turned out to be an expensive cafeteria with poor food. Staff were friendly and polite.
  • We spent a couple of days on the island which is truly beautiful. The Roosevelt estate was a definite must-see.
  • My wife visited Campobello several times in the late 1990s. We were in our 50s then and it was like going back to Child hood. The people they are all very nice the climate in the summertime was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the co-ops.
  • It's the best place ever. Go visit soon!!
