Scenic drives, stunning coastline, nature wonders of Fundy Bay, secrets of the Magnetic Hill, islands, abundant wildlife – so just find best RV parks and campgrounds to explore these New Brunswick’s treasures
New Brunswick is one of Canada's three Maritime Provinces.
Its capital is lovely Fredericton, but the real treasure of this province is the nature, especially along the coastline.
The province has five scenic drives: Fundy Coastal Drive, Acadian Coastal Drive, River Valley Scenic Drive, Miramichi River Route and Appalachian Range Route.
Fundy National Park has a rugged coastline and mesmerizing waterfalls. Here you will meet the highest tides in the world (more than 50 feet) and the breathtaking landscape at the low tide. But be careful – ocean’s water is coming back quickly, so be aware of timing!
Kouchibouguac National Park has barrier islands, sand dunes, lagoons, salt marshes and forests.
Obviously so rich and pristine nature has abundant wildlife; you will love to see here rare birds. And be ready for swimming, cycling and hiking.
Wonders of Bay of Fundy - a "must-to-see" and feel.....
Other than that, it may be good idea to see Mount Carleton, New Brunswick Botanical Garden, Cape Enrage or Hartland and the longest covered bridge in the world.
Surprise not to miss – drive your car up the slopes of the Magnetic Hill (near Moncton). Amazing feelings and perception of “free uphill ride” against the force of gravity!

I heard from one family that had a disabled daughter, and when they asked about a site that is equipped for the handicapped, they were put on a site that was just beautiful and accommodating.
I believe the park they chose to stay at was Fundy National Park.
The campgrounds offered a nice quiet area with a bath facility a short distance from the campsite with a lighted path. They recalled having a wonderful time with no worries about their daughter’s safety and ability to enjoy the camps many activities. Many campgrounds are considered beach camping parks and have very nice beaches that are kept clean free of debris.
Some of the campgrounds also offer horseback riding with a trail guide and fun activities for the entire family.
