  • The camping was lovely. Hardly any bugs - I was not expecting that. Super super clean washrooms. Beautiful playground for the kids. Great price. Didn't get a chance to swim but I'll be back again this summer.
  • I enjoy going to the beach there. They have shaded picnic table areas as well. Snack bar for those hungry kids too. In winter there is sledding and hot chocolate.
  • A great resource for the community, especially the beach and marina. Great trails offer lots of recreations options in winter and summer.
  • Great spot for all. Camped with our kids. Spend everyday on Mactaquac beach. Fantastic for small kids as they can wade out. Great sand.
  • Mactaquac Park is a nice park located 20 minutes outside of Fredericton. There is a beach, a campground, a marina, and a golf course in the park as well. If you're a fan, or have ever been interested in, Treego, the park has that, as well. Make sure you check it out next time you're in the vicinity!
