4 Parks near Grand Manan, New Brunswick
Jul 2015 - $25.00
This large, open, grass campground features a narrow paved road for access to sites that are mostly grass with a thin bit of gravel. Our site was not very level and the ground was rather wet and mushy, meaning we also had plenty of gnats and mosquitoes. The site had a convenient electrical hookup that we didn't use, but no water or sewer hookups; we did use the convenient dump station where we also filled our fresh water. Even at our site at the end of the loop, the WiFi signal was good and most of the time the throughput was excellent. Toilet, shower, and laundry facilities are available, but we didn't use them. The low price was a very good value for the amenities provided. - DaveInOhio

Lovely relaxing campground on a lovely relaxing island. The RV sites are widely spaced in a grassy field and many have a view of the ocean. The tent sites are separated by bushes and have great privacy. There are no full hookups, but many of the sites have electricity. No sites have
We were there the first week in July and many nights only 25% of the sites were occupied. There was excellent free WiFi in the sites near the office. The campground is only minutes from the very picturesque town of Seal Cove, and about 15 minutes from the spectacular Deep Cove beach. The campground has nice showers and one washing machine and dryer. - chopchopbillygoat

We found this campground to be quiet and clean. Some sites have a water view. We opted to stay in an unserviced site so we could have more privacy. The majority of the serviced sites (27) were in an open field with only a few trees for shade. Our site being on the edge of the forest was shaded and had a distant water view. There was a playground and the beach was a short walk. We found the bathrooms clean. Although we didn't use it, a laundry was available as well as a kitchen shelter. Grand Manan itself is beautiful with lots of nice beaches and coastline to discover. - Rockwood

Nice Provincial Park. The campground is pretty and nicely located to explore the island. We reserved a site in the large open area, where the sites are large and big rig friendly. Sites in other parts of the park, that are best for shorter in height RVs, are even more beautiful (i.e., they are inside the mature forest). The park staff was very nice and friendly.
We walked to beautiful views of the Bay of Fundy, beach and Roosevelt Cottage from the campground. The walking trail to the Roosevelt Cottage was through a wonderful mature forest.
Given our taller height, we needed to zigzag around some tree branches on the island, getting to the park and within the park, but it was doable. The park nicely trimmed the trees in the dump station area, which allowed us to use the dump station when we departed. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

Rate after currency exchange, reservation fee, and 10% senior discount was $23 per night for a seven night stay. Site was a very large grass site with 30amp electric. Our site was located in a large open field with no trees. Other electric sites are available in a forest-like area with narrow roads and low branches. A dump station and water spigots were available in the park. The campground was very quiet at night and the majority of sites were unoccupied. There was no park WiFi and no Verizon cell/MiFi reception in the park. We have Verizon's Travelpass that provides coverage in Canada for $2/day, but coverage was spotty on the island. The visitor center provides free WiFi access and is about 3 miles from the park. DishTV satellite reception was good for #119 and #110 but not #129; therefore, not all channels were available. We would stay here again. - Dave51

A Must stay ! History, scenery, local flavor and a favorable exchange rate (rate listed in US $) make this a Fabulous opportunity in an Excellent campground. No water, sewer or WiFi at any NB provincial parks but good 30a elec. I arrived via the ferry from Deer Island which was a bit pricey with a trailer and then left via bridge back into Maine (free). You could just come and go via bridge but the only way to discover more of New Brunswick is to take the ferry or go all the way around to Calais to enter Canada. This "one way" aspect of visiting this island may be why it had so few visitors in the campground, but the National Park and local island people make it a "must visit" for me ! NO FUEL or real Grocery on the island so plan ahead. I chose a site in the woods, which could be a little tight for maneuvering and level but it worked for me and my 33' 5th wheel. There is also a large open field which would be big rig friendly. Good laundry ($1.50C wash $1.25C dry), excellent clean restrooms and showers, a large pavilion with wood stove and open fire cooking available for groups, mosquitoes (bring your spray), large children's play area and a must visit National Park ! 9 hole golf course 3 min. away, local beach at Friar's Head, fish markets and lots of local flavor. Highly recommend a visit and I would certainly stay again. - SailorGolf

I requested an available site that I liked but they said our rig would not fit. Attendant was very talkative. Instead we were crammed between two big rigs in a tiny site while the site I requested was much larger and sat empty.
Picnic table was down an embankment, inconvenient.
The internet was hopeless and the staff and owners blamed us and our new computers. We were subjected to being belittled. We only could get connected by sitting next to the building freezing on a cold windy day. They need better internet service. Not a pleasant experience. - twotimes

The only reason we didn't give a 10 was 1) no sewer hookups and 2) on site 18 the best way to park is facing Johnson Bay, but the hook-ups were set up for facing out, so I had to pull close to the right side of the site as possible so my 36 ft power cord would reach. Luckily my neighbor on the left had a Y for the water connection, and he graciously let me use it instead of trying to get my hose under the coach to the other side. That said, there was a honey wagon service for $10.00 or you could use it yourself without cost. As for the reason I gave a 9. This is a great little campground. The views out our front window were spectacular, and the camp hosts were terrific. - therealSimpsons

The sites are very close together and level. Ask for site 12, 12 A or 12 B; they are the best. The power (30 amp) was steady. The view of the bay is outstanding. - Texas Safari

The waterfront sites have lovely scenery of the Passamaquoddy Bay and Canadian islands Deer and Campobello. We parked "wrong way" to the utilities to get the best view. Extreme leveling with several boards put the front wheels in the air. Wifi was poor and Verizon unavailable except for a Canadian signal available to users of the company's international service. The Old Sow whirlpool (ask at the office for a map) can be seen a couple hours before high tide from rocks a short hike away. It was barely discernible the day we looked but several small "piglets" twirled sticks and seaweed around for a minutes at a time. The campground's onsite restaurant closes after Labor Day. - Mtmoi

Eastport is the eastern most point in the continental USA. Site offered had blocked view of the ocean sound. Still had some view off to the side of the Class A who was right on the sound. Laundry was iffy; dryers didn't work very well. 30 minutes of free WI-FI then pay as you go. Not much to do in the small town, nice bakery and a $69 boat ride to see the whirlpool. - Bburgbrewer

We stayed here before and just loved it, but you can't go home again. Last time we were here it was September and there were not many people in the park, so we got a great site on the waterfront. This time the park was packed and the sites are very close together. The only thing we asked for when we made our reservation was that we face the water and we did not. We went to the office and asked to be moved, but there really wasn't anywhere to move - the park was jammed. But the staff is nice, they have a restaurant that is open on Saturdays and they have fish frys on the weekend. It is very convenient to go to Eastport. I probably would not stay here again just because the sites are so close together, but is the only option in the area. They say they have wifi, but is impossible to use - we even went up the office and it was so slow we ended up going to the library to connect. - mary mcmoo
