Herring Cove Provincial Park

The Nature Lovers’ Retreat

Herring Cove Provincial Park is a nature-lover’s island paradise located on Campobello Island on New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy. 

The park is a hiker’s delight offering several unique trails of varying lengths. Hike the Carriage Road through a forest of ancient spruce, across log bridges and around a small pond, or follow an old logging road once used by the Roosevelts.

Around the 1.6-km (1-mi.) long beach, you will find sea urchins, a rich bog and sheer cliffs. Wildlife and birdlife abound at Herring Cove. Bald eagles, osprey and beavers are among the many species that can be observed along the trails at the park.

The park also features a 9-hole golf course with pro shop and a restaurant featuring scrumptious local offerings.

Visit the unforgettable Roosevelt Campobello International Park, where the late President Franklin Roosevelt spent his summers. This site is administered jointly by Canada and the U.S. and stands as a symbol of the close, neighbourly relations between the two countries.

Campobello Island is accessible by ferry from Deer Island mid-June through September, and by bridge year-round from Lubec, Maine (a passport is required).
