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. We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

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! We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

We spent 3 nights exploring the area in and around the park. We had one of the fully serviced pull-through sites, it worked well for us. Other than getting our rig leveled (the utility connections are not in the most level areas of the site. Wi-Fi in a National Park was a plus, but the signal was weak which I solved with a repeater. A great location to explore the area. Don't miss Hopewell Rocks! We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

We found Route 10 to Alma to be bumpy and tough on the travel trailer at times. The campground is in a heavily forested area; our spot was level and large. The comfort station was clean and modern. There was a neat gathering house for Wi-Fi, to do dishes, and meet other travelers. Apparently, it comes in handy during bad weather and avoiding swarming insects. Insects were numerous until a wind picked up. There is a gift shop a few km away, but no interpretive center or naturalists to tell us about the Bay of Fundy or local ecology. It was amazing to walk to the low tide level. We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Another really nice Provincial park with full services. Our campsite was a pull though with good 50 amp power, water pressure was a little high and sewer connections were good. The sites were level and long without any overhanging tree limbs. The free Internet connection was weak but usable. Sometime we would drive up by the check-in building for a better Internet connection. The internal wide roads were great--asphalt. The cost was low but one has to pay a Provincial park fee for each day one is in the park. There were some nice hiking trails. The town of Alma was close by and we could watch the lobster boats come in around mid morning and buy lobsters in local fish houses. We would certainly stay in this park again when we are in the area. We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Outstanding campground in Fundy National Park! Hikes and sights kept us busy for several days. We stayed in Chignecto North in one of 10 pull thrus with full hookups including 50amp. We got partial Dish satellite reception from our heavily wooded site. Wifi is only available close to the transmitters at the entry station or bathrooms. The roads going to the park are heavily patched and rough. At present, the coastal road from Moncton to Alma is rougher than going to the park from the north on Highway 1 and 114. From earlier reviews I was concerned about the steep hill up from the Alma entrance to Chignecto but the climb was not that bad and I have a heavy RV. I like that you can see pictures of some of the sites as well as site dimensions on Fundy’s online reservation web site. Rate shown doesn't reflect additional park usage fee.

A big campground with a lot of loops, roomy and wooded sites set in groups of cul de sacs branching off roads. Weeds could have used some trimming. Bathroom was modern but had a somewhat annoying push button shower system that required constant pushing to keep activated and released a spray mist that wet down everything in the stall. The National Park roads are nice but roads are bad to get down here (and back) from the main highway. The town of Alma near the park has a small market, restaurants, fish market, gas station and a bakery with great sweet rolls. We stayed two nights.

This is a great Canadian National Park. The highway getting to it was in serious need of maintenance but at the park boundary, brand new blacktop. We discovered that Chignecto and Chignecto North campgrounds are accessed from the same road from Highway 114. After we turned around and came back up the big hill from the town of Alma. Sites are clean and spacious set apart at a comfortable distance from your neighbours. To use the Wi-Fi, we took our vehicle and laptop to the main entrance, close to the antenna. Very busy and noisy on the July 1st evening but the rest of the weekend was very quiet, close to nature, and relaxing. We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a really nice campground in Fundy National Park. The cost is an estimate because I lost the receipt, but it is close. We bought the Parc Canada Pass to get this good price. The camp sites are what most people want in a campground in that they are spacious, woodsy and perfect for a campfire. We were delighted to learn that wi-fi was available and for free. Just park somewhat near the restrooms and you will get a decent signal. The check in is smooth as one would expect from National Park Canada employees. Having 2-way connection was also nice. This park is not far from Alma where there are stores and restaurants and a view of the Fundy tide influence. Would definitely return here again.

We camped in Chignecto North CG. There are two others. (Headquarters and Point Wolfe (closes about first few days of September) Chignecto North is a few miles from Alma and in the highlands. Headquarters is a much smaller campground and the sites are closer together but very near Alma and a lower elevation than Chignecto North. If you are close to the entrance kiosk in Chig. N., with a pull through, Wi-Fi works. If in a wooded area elsewhere, no Wi-Fi. Most of the back-ins are spacious with some privacy. Chig. N. is a very wooded area. This is a beautiful national park with a golf course. Great seafood in Alma. We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped in the Chignecto Campground in their unserviced area. It was fabulous. Sites were large and reasonably level and spotless. Roads were a little narrow in spots. Staff was very helpful. We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here one night at Chignecto campground, one of two campgrounds in the park; would have liked to stay more. The campground was great, clean, well maintained. We had full hookups. There are even cooking pavilions with a wood stove and sinks. There are hiking and biking trails and beautiful views of Fundy Bay and the Tidal basin. There is a steep downgrade on the road to the town called Alma, a charming town with a beach, restaurants and good lobster. You can get firewood at the park, pay $6 and they give you a burlap bag that you can fill with as much wood as you can carry. The park is about 40 minutes drive from the Hopewell Rocks, which is a must see if you want to see the spectacular tidal changes. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in Chignecto North. The paved roads in the park were good, but the entrance road was marginal. Watch your speed. The site was gravel, mostly level, wooded and large. Hook-ups were easily accessible, but the sewer pipe was well above ground level. No WiFi at the site. Well-maintained and clean. An excellent spot to tour the park by car, visit Alama, and the Hopewell Rocks. Many trails to hike, if you are so inclined. Check the other fees necessary to stay in the Canadian Parks System.

I don't know: over $30 seems alot for a National, Provincial or State Park to me just having power & water. Having said that, this park is beautiful. There is no such thing as a bad site. All are big and well separated. I paced one site out at an easy in-excess of 100' long! We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in the North area. Although we had a site rated for a big-rig, it was tight. Did not see any other sites that would have been better: many would have been worse. The problem comes from the overhanging trees and the fact that the entrances or opening to the sites are not trimmed back. Other than sewer, the site had all the hookups. There are 5 or 6 dump stations so you do not have to wait in line. Great value and also the fact that you are in the woods. Hiking is good around the site. If you go to Hopewell Rocks (a must see), try to have breakfast at the "Dude Ranch" on Hwy 114, it's a great meal. Would stay there again.
