7 Parks near Fundy National Park, New Brunswick

Our site at Chignecto North was very private, due to trees. It was difficult to see the other RVs around us, although we could hear them. There was a walking path that went close to our site, but users of the path were usually quiet and did not disturb us. The site was very long - the entry was just a driveway width, but where we parked opened up wider so we could easily have room to sit outside. The roads within the park are not extremely wide but most are one-way so there's no concern about meeting another vehicle. - pattic777

Great National Park! Would go back in a second. Plenty big enough for my 53 foot combo truck fifth wheel, and easy pull-through. Was close to town and attractions and we enjoyed our stay. (Not as nice as Banff) - Maryland Traveler

I specifically chose this campground because it had electric, water, and free internet on some sites. (I teach online and need to check emails a couple of times a day.) Thus, I was more than slightly irritated when upon checking in and asking if I needed a password for the internet, I was told I probably couldn't get any signal, even though I had one of the sites closest to the internet hub!!! And they were right. I had difficulty getting and keeping a connection, even with my booster, causing me to leave early. Mostly, I got shoulder shrugs to my complaints about the lack of internet when the availability was specified on site descriptions, but I did fill out a comment card. There are some wider and easier to access sites, but I also had trouble getting my 32' motorhome into a long, but very narrow site with some scraping of the sides by pine branches. They need to do some serious tree trimming and either widen some site entrances or post the limitations more clearly on their web site. On a positive note, sites are mostly spread apart for privacy. No cell service with Rogers, and I was told it was spotty with other Canadian carriers. - judy_online

We stayed at both Chignecto North and Headquarters in Fundy Bay National Park. The site at Chignecto was a lot more private (a lot more woods between sites) than the site at Headquarters. We had thought that we would do more walking to locations from Headquarters, and, theoretically it is walkable to Alma, but it is down a long hill or via a wooden staircase. Doable, but we have a tow vehicle, so we drove it. In 20/20 hindsight, since we could have stayed at Chignecto the whole time, we should have done that. Headquarters is not bad: it is a nice location, just not as nice as Chignecto in our opinion.
The roads are a little tight for our large motorhome bus (43') but adequate as long as we did not meet another RV as we were coming in or leaving.
Our specific site, 100, was the nicest one there as far as we could see: it was plenty deep and lots of width to the space as well. Very level too. - pattic777

Paved road through park gave easy access to a level, gravel site that was quite adequate for our 37' RV and toad. Friendly campers we nearby on other sites, and trees provided some nice shade. We used the convenient water and electricity hookups; there was no sewer, so we dumped on the way out. We didn't use the available toilet and shower facilities.
There was no WiFi at our site, and that at the kiosk was very weak, so we enjoyed coffee and breakfast at the Octopus Garden cafe a mile away in Alma and connected there. Similarly, there was no laundry in the park, we we went to the little laundromat in Alma.
Price was a good value for amenities provided. - DaveInOhio

Rate reflects required reservation fee and required park entry fee. Stayed 4 nights. Not really a 'lot' to do like a U.S. national park other than drive through park, some hiking, one overlook, did have a 9 hole golf course. Campground was good - laundry (dryer was broken) - toilet clean. I stayed in an unserviced site with good sun for solar - shade depends on site choice. Town of Alma was just outside park / campground area with fuel and small market. Hwy. 114 to get to park is Very poor in both design and maintenance - extreme hill and curves coming into campground toward Alma from south. No real sites for big rig so choose site carefully when reserving. No Ranger activities until July / Aug.. - SailorGolf

Nice little park, was perfect for our stay. Close to Alma. Much more affordable than the National Park. The fact we only had 2 way hook-up wasn't really a problem. - crackerssouth

We stayed for 2 nights in late September. The owner was very accommodating, helping us to level our camper using wood planks and giving us electricity (since he put us in a tent site and provided 20 amp service through a power cord). It was raining very hard but he took the time to make sure we were happy with our site and everything was working properly.
This is an isolated spot so not for someone looking for a lot of campground activities, shopping, etc. It is about 4 miles to Advocate Harbour, where there is a modest grocery store, gas / diesel, etc. There is also a fantastic restaurant there, called Wild Caraway. There is a restaurant / cafe right next to the campground, but it was closed when we were there.
The view is the draw here. Water comes up within 25' of your camper as it is right on the beach at the breakwall. This is home to the huge Fundy tides and it is very relaxing to just watch the tide come in and out. There is great beach walking when the tide is out and lots of fossils. Joggins Fossil Center is about 1 hour away up a road that at times, is not so good, but passable. - Cape Cod kayaker

Rate is Canadian $. What a unique campground where you can watch the Fundy tide rise to within feet of your campsite, visit the on-site lighthouse, and cook lobster from the "lobster lady" who lives nearby. Great location to visit attractions in this off-the-beaten-track area. The campground is bare-bones, but with E/W/S which all worked well. The owners and staff are very friendly and hard-working. Cell/data reception was excellent. It's just a fun place to be. - Mingo Papa

Not much for amenties, but what a great view! Would have been perfect if there hadn't been a fire ban. Wifi is good, once you actually connect to it. - MSSW

This was a stop over place in route to Nova Scotia. Great little campground with a little village feel. Mostly seasonal sites, but all very nicely maintained with landscaping and ornate decks and decorations. Owner lives on site and was very friendly and came out after hours to check us in. Would camp here again. - Nausett

Very small park with very friendly and helpful staff. Very isolated and away from the city. Near the highway but no road noise. Tight roads and turns, so not good for anything over 31 feet length. We would stay here again, but not much to see in the area. Good stop over on your way to Nova Scotia. - Awesome Navigator

Closeness to the Hopewell Rocks is this place's selling point. Our site had a nice view of the lake and marshland. We walked out to the dam after sunset but didn't spot any moose. The 10 mph speed limit is governed by prevalent potholes. Wifi was weak at our site far from the office. - Mtmoi

If you get the right site, this is a great place to stay. We had a beautiful backin wooded site and the sites along the waters edge were good too. But some of the sites are doubles - two campers on one long site and they are VERY tight. And some of the sites are along the road which is very dusty. The staff is great. You can walk down several paths to see the marsh and the waterfront which is quite nice. The park is very quiet. - mary mcmoo

Stayed in one of the larger sites designed with motorhomes in mind (utilities on the correct side to pull straight in). We had a nice view between the bushes of a small pond. Sites are close together and the park roads were dusty when we were there due to a lack of rain. The park has a small not heated pool that we did not use. We had a nice view of the bay from outside our RV and could see the tides coming in & out. There is a mix of tent camping, small RV's and large motorhomes in the campground. WiFi worked OK. Great location for visiting Hopewell Rocks & Fundy National Park. It's a 40 minute drive into Moncton for a grocery store of any size. Roads inside the park are gravel & rough. - Co-Mike

Park is 90% permanent campers. All the good sites are taken and the site that we were assigned to only had 15 amp service. The roads are very narrow, the turns are tight and there are many tree branches that need to be trimmed. There is nothing much in the immediate area. I would not stay here again. - VtLee

This is not a family friendly park. We stayed three nights and there didn't appear to be anyone around to enforce the quiet times they had on their rules. All three nights were filled with people drinking and partying well into 2am. Saturday night, there were more parties and what sounded like an open mic night at midnight. The pool was beautiful, that was definitely a perk. Our site was tiny, and all of the seasonal sites were scattered between the daily sites. We stayed there in 2007 (tenting) and dealt with the same party atmosphere, but decided to give it another try since we're in the area. It was difficult reserving the site, they didn't answer the phone past 6pm and didn't call me back with site availability after I finally touched base with them. We will not be staying there again. - Canadian Maple

Nice Campground. Heated pool. Not many activities for kids. Caters to adults. Many shaded sites on top of hill but not very level. Level grassy sites on either side of hill but are in open. - SimpsonfamilyNB
