2 Parks near Fundy National Park, New Brunswick
Sep 2015 - $25.00
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

An exceptional campground from Parks Canada, way better than Banff. It's in the middle of nowhere, so come prepared, as the closest grocery store is over 20 miles. We used Hwy 114 from Moncton on arrival and some areas are fairly rough giving the suspension a good workout. The last mile is uphill probably some is 8 to 10% grade. We departed on 114 to Hwy 1 and it also is rough in places with a couple of steep grades. We were in site #6 which is a pull through and it was easy to access (total length is a shade over 60') It was gently sloping down from the rear and also side to side, but nothing that a few pads and the levelling system couldn't handle. Services are well located and great quality. They even have Wi-Fi and we could pick up a good signal in the coach or an excellent one in the adjacent buildings. Some of the roads are paved but others are gravel, regardless all roads were in good condition. They even have a huge playground for the kids. Would definitely return if we come back to Fundy. - Oriana

Whoever claimed that this campground isn't big enough for large rigs didn't do much research. We were in the fully serviced sites, A1-A10, and they are huge and quite private. We did have a problem with the 50A receptacle which our power management system wouldn't connect to, but we were fine on 30A. The highway (114) down to Alma is steep, but you'll be fine if you go slowly. Just remember to gear down. The WiFi was great especially since we couldn't get our Rogers network cellular modem to work. We did have Verizon voice service on our phones, but no data signal. The WiFi did go out for ~36 hours during a rainstorm and it can be pretty boring, since there is absolutely no other way to get online that we could figure out. BTW, satellite TV is a no go because of the tree cover. But it is still another wonderful Canadian National Park! - docj

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

My family just loved our brief stay at this campground. Headquarters campground is a very beautiful campground. We were walking distance to the local town (Alma). Lot's do in the National Park. We went on two nature hikes that were exceptional. The sites were quite large. We had site 103, and would pick it again. Our site did not have a sewer. Not many sewer sites, they go quickly. No camp fires. But they had one communal one for everyone to join (BYOW) bring your own wood. No WIFI at our site, no cell reception. We would return to this campground. - bornTOcamp
