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. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

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

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. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Construction on Hwy 114, the road into the park, made for a slow, bumpy ride getting here, but should give others a nice smooth ride in the future!

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. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Sites are fairly open but with plenty of space between neighbors. Fundy NP itself is amazing and this campground is ideally located. We had solid WiFi at our site near the check-in. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

The biggest advantage here is the location. You can see the bay from the campground entrance. Alma, the closest town is within walking distance, via the roadside sidewalk or steps from the campground. This location is nice to watch the tide if you're not going to Hopewell Rocks. The sites are very small and there is no privacy. I recommend that you NOT choose sites 25, 26, 27, 28, or 29. These are very close to the shower house and the path that connects the camper section from the yurts. We were in #27 and people were constantly walking thru our site. This was a noise and a privacy (what little there was) issue. Camp fires are not permitted in this campground, in case that's important to you. Would I stay here again? Only if the other campgrounds were closed or full. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Travel Trailer.

Outstanding park, beautiful setting. The sites are long, wide, easily accessible and the nearby town of Alma with its view of the 35' tides is only about a kilometer away. I had no problem with my 39' coach and vehicle. The experience was made so much more pleasurable by the young park employee who greeted us and signed us in. She answered all my questions and provided much-needed travel information for exiting the park. Her sunny disposition and smile made for a perfect welcome to the park.

Fundy National Park is beautiful and if you have a larger motor home, the Headquarters campground may be the only one that will fit you. Point Wolfe is almost all tents and to get there you have to go through a covered bridge that has a tight turn into it. Chignecto is more accessible, but not for larger motor homes. We had a 30 amp site at Headquarters. I doubt they have many 50 amp sites. I'd plan on 30 amps. Our site was easy in and easy out and fairly large. There is a wonderful playground across the road for kids. Our grand kids loved the small zip line. Also nearby is the town of Alma. Some very good restaurants and great seafood. The salt water pool is about 1 kilometer away. We would come back again. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the Headquarters part of the park. It was a nice site with adequate room between sites. It seemed family friendly and had W-iFI (a big plus). We were surprised about the road in from 1. It was very hilly. We unhooked our toad at the lookout before the last down hill and were happy we did so. If you are coming from the Moncton area, would suggest the road that skirts the coast. It might be longer than using 1, but much easier. We would stay again. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

The best campground yet! It was pricey when you consider the entry fee, but there is so much to do there. The sites are very private, the bathrooms are very clean. There was a nice indoor cooking area if it were to rain, complete with a sink, picnic tables and wood stoves. There was Wi-Fi, but only at the front entrance, which didn't help us at all. The showers could have been warmer (push button, no temp control), but were acceptable. Definitely a favorite and we'll be back!

This is a beautiful National Park. We were in one of the 10 full service sites. During the busy summer season these fill up fast so reservations are a must. So much to see and do in the area. Alma is just down the road. Could spend the day there talking to the locals and enjoying the good food and watching the tides change. If we are fortunate enough to come back to New Brunswick we would certainly stop here again. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Fundy National Park has several campgrounds. We stayed in the Headquarters Campground next to the visitor's center and the town of Alma, which is right on the bay of Fundy. This is one of the best National Park campgrounds we've stayed in, both in the US and Canada. We had full hook-ups with excellent Wi-Fi, a first in our national park experience. The only road into Fundy is Hwy 114, which is in very rough shape. Both our sofa and TV set were sideways when we got here, and opening the cabinets was a bit of a challenge. We were here in Spring, and as apparently typical for New Brunswick, the most plentiful wildlife in the park is the black fly, so be sure to have plenty of bug spray with you. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great National Park, quiet, lots of privacy, not too brushy. Rate we used was for electric and water with a pass. The pass is very good value (new this year) good not just for camping but all National attractions and good for a year. We used at Louisbourg and saved $35.00. The other reviewer is spot on: Tides Restaurant has the best shrimp I have ever had. Would come back again. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped in a 40 footer with full hookups and WiFi and the WiFi worked! We stayed 3 days and wished we had more time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites were large and private. Lots of trails here to bike, hike or take the dogs. One of our favorite sites and one of our highest rated sites. We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

As some have stated, the FHU (incl. 50 amp) camping fee is $35, but you will also need daily park permits (or annual passes) for each camping member. Friends gave us the gift of covering the park permit parts so that made the decision to stay here MUCH easier! At $50 per night I'm not sure I would've signed us up, that's a pretty big splurge! But having said all that, it's a gorgeous park! We stayed in Chignecto North in site A 3, which was a pull-through. Sites A 1-10 all looked to be pull-throughs and a lot of green space between sites. I don't think you can reserve a specific site ahead of time though, the cg workers do that when you get there. Awesome hikes. Great trails all over to walk pets too. Very quiet CG, esp. at night! The Tides restaurant down the hill in Alma has the BEST shrimp I have EVER had! A lot of folks rave about Hopewell Rocks, so we went. Pretty much felt ripped-off and disappointed. If you know the Oregon coastline, don't bother with this bit. If not, maybe it's worth the $8/person or whatever. So only complaints are too expensive and low water pressure. Otherwise, love it! One of my favorite spots! We camped at Headquarters Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.
