Located on the New Brunswick/Maine border along Route 4, the Village of McAdam has been greeting visitors since the mid 1800’s when it served as a major railway center.
This rural community is home to the McAdam Railway Station, a National Historic Site of Canada and New Brunswick Provincial Historic Site, and likes to be known as New Brunswick’s friendliest village, having hosted thousands of passengers passing through by train.
Wauklehegan Lake is located within village limits and boasts a fully serviced campground complete with beach area, canoe and paddleboat rentals, showers, washrooms and laundry facilities. Only minutes from the St. Croix River, a National Heritage River, McAdam is a true gem for those wanting to explore nature as it was intended – unencumbered and pristine.
The village is well-served with several community restaurants, as well as country stores where it’s still possible to purchase everything from gardening supplies to groceries. If Norman Rockwell were alive today, we’re sure he’d say “it’s good to be home.”
McAdam is home to a vibrant history and a unique culture, all surrounded in a naturally warm and welcome setting.
