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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 didn't make reservations and so we on a "no service" site in our motorhome. It was more suitable for tenting. There were many vacant, nicer sites that never were taken during our 2 night stay. the price for 2 nights was $78.20, no hookups. It included admittance to the "park". It was the biggest rip-off that we've ever had for camping and I would never camp at another National Park in Canada. On the plus side: the showers were fine and free of cost.

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.

We stayed at Headquarters Campground. It's very convenient to Alma, NB. You easily walk there to view the bay or to eat. Many hiking trails are available from the campground or within easy driving distance. The sites were level, shady and the grounds were clean. It is very quiet and relaxing. We would return again.

We stayed 1 night at Headquarters Campground. It's very convenient. You can walk to Alma Beach to view the bay or to head into Alma for food. You can walk to a saltwater pool, the visitors center, hiking trails. The hookups worked fine. The bathrooms were clean. It was quiet. Campfires are not allowed here.
