5 Parks near Kingston, New Brunswick
Jul 2009 - $27.00
This park is a small park located on the Saint John River. The park has a nice sandy beach that is open to the public but plenty of space for campers. Fast food is available at the on-site canteen; there is also a pub. Cottages are available as well as regular sites for large campers, tent trailers and tents. Will be camping again! - chrmar

This turned out to be a very nice location. The campground is within a very large city park that has walking / hiking trails and a lake with fish. It is close to downtown Saint John and also not far off the highway, so a good stop between the US and Nova Scotia.
Facilities were clean - a little dated, but fine. Good space between camp sites. It looked like there were a fair amount of seasonals here but there were also plenty of spaces for overnighters. Most of the seasonals were not there when we stayed (perhaps because it was late in the season?) so it could be busy in the summer. - Cape Cod kayaker

This park is perfectly located for US travelers if they want to take a break from the long ride through Maine. It is located at Rockwood Park in the city of St John and right off the highway.
The campground itself is not fancy. There are some spacious semi-private sites (160 to be 190) but chances are that you may find your site on the main part of the campground, gravel, next to each other, no privacy, full hook up.
We had an unexpected delay on the road and arrived at the campground at 2.00 am. To our surprise, there was someone at the gate, who couldn't be nicer.
We also spent the night at the campground on our way back to the US. Both experiences were great, with the staff being helpful and accommodating.
After a long ride from Nova Scotia, it was such a pleasure to take our dog for a long walk on the beautiful Rockside Park, which among many great features, it has a doggie park. - Catalina W

Overnight Stop, Large Gravel Parking Lot.
We were traveling between Prince Edward Island and Campobello Island (including two border crossings). Since we knew it would rain on the second day, we were looking for an overnight stop that was close to either Route 1 or Route 2 that could accommodate our RV hooked-up overnight (i.e., we would choose a long single-day drive over hooking-up in the rain on the second morning).
I initially discounted this campground due to comments about the site lengths, but I did notice on google earth that an RV of our size was hooked-up in one of the sites. When I called the campground, they said they had a double-site that was available and would accommodate us (30 amp and water). We arrived to be told by a different person that the double site was reserved under another person's name and we were given a less desirable location (which flooded due to the overnight rain). Ultimately the double site that were supposed to be in (and several others double sites in the same location) remained empty overnight-a little frustrating, but we did accomplish our goal to stay hooked-up overnight. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

Campground is on the banks of the St. John River. Free 5-minute ferry ride takes you across the river to the campground. Ferry handles all sizes of rigs and runs 24/7.
Campground is large and is situated on a hillside. Getting up the gravel roads could be a problem for larger motorhomes - in our area not a problem. Many sites are heavily treed and some are very open. Some sites are close together, but we didn't have neighbours for the 3 days we were there so not a problem.
We would stay here again. - DCM/JMB

Only one of two campgrounds in St. John area. This one requires transit via ferry to get there. Ferry ramp drops down 50 yards from entrance to park. Teenage staff speaks for itself but we were escorted to our site, which was up on top of very steep mountain. Gravel road made transit up extremely stressful. Once there it was wide open and extremely tight. Stayed two nights and had enough of tight quarters. Challenge to get out - back down steep gravel road, lots of gravel thrown as we were sliding down down. - KilaH

Situated right on the St. John River, you take a ferry across the river to the campground. Ferry is large, handles big rigs, and is no charge. Ferry runs 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week. Campground is large with nice size sites but built down a hill and sites are not level. It appears no grading has been done on the sites so buy more leveling blocks. Many sites are heavily treed and some are very open. It seems every site has a wonderful view of the St. John river. The ferry lands right at the entrance to the RV park. You only wait a few minutes each direction. There are many hiking trails on the mountain as well as a wonderful viewing site to watch the beavers at sunset. There is a swimming beach. There is only Wi-Fi in the camp office. No cable TV. Electric is 30 or 50 amp. Not many 50 amp sites. There is a very nice pool - not sure if it is heated or not. We took the ferry across the river and accessed the Wi-Fi at the little restaurant. There are many seasonal sites which are beautifully landscaped and well cared for. The camp staff are very friendly and helpful. The park has activities for the campers on the weekends. Just as you take the ferry away from the park, there is a small general store with a small restaurant, offering home baked turkey breast and pies. Yummy. They have good Wi-Fi you can access if you eat there. We recommend it.
We visited St. John which is a beautiful old town about 20 miles from the RV Park. Beautiful old town and fun to walk around. It is built on a hill so wear your walking shoes. Many delightful shops and small cafes to enjoy. Plus visit the NB museum. - JanneC

Long level, spacious grass and gravel sites, 30 amp worked great, fire pit and picnic table at each site, our WiFi hot spot worked OK but the parks WiFi was slow. Verizon worked great. We enjoyed walking down to "beach" but it is mostly rock, not sand. It's in the bay of Fundy so you do see the rise and fall of the water. There is enough to do for several days and rental DVD's at the office for a small fee when you want to watch a movie. They have a putting green, Rec Room, laundry facility that were clean but we didn't visit the restrooms. They also had events but we missed them. A large amount of seasonals but a good amount of daily and weekly along with tent camping. We enjoyed our stay and the staff is very friendly and helpful. - PERRELLAS

Park is located on the Bay of Fundy, in the town of St. Martin. We did not have a tow vehicle since our RV is a Thor Vegas. Very beautiful location. Clean restrooms and showers. Gravel site featuring a fire ring and picnic table. - Christopher Klink

The view alone here is worth a 10, as were the fantastic sea breezes! Unfortunately, I am downgrading it a bit because of the need to additional gravel at most sites. Full hookups and a close Bay of Fundy view are worth a lot to me, however. I did not use the restrooms, laundry, or other facilities, but sites are decently spread out for a commercial campground and it seems to attract a mostly mature crowd, so it was quiet at night. I had a site on the end, closest to the beach, which was very nice. There are a lot of seasonal campers here, but they are clumped together in other parts of this campground. A big problem is that you need to stock up with food and bring everything you need for your stay because this pleasant little town is an hour's drive on an uneven, well-patched, and bumpy asphalt road that caused my motorhome to sway and rock violently at times! (I had to slow down to way below the speed limit because I was close to losing control. No shoulders and road was narrow, to boot. Agree with previous poster that roads are too bad for a one-night trip here.) Campground internet was OK with my booster, otherwise very weak. - judy_online

We probably won't be as glowing as some other reviews since we were promised a long pull though for our motorhome and tow car and got a very tight spot at the entrance to the park which required un-hooking and some maneuvering. Utilities were split. Electric and sewer on one side, water on the other so we fed hose under the bus. Site was not terribly level but my automatic system deals with that nicely. WIFI was strong, but molasses slow, until the kids in the park went to bed. We will say the lady who greeted us could not have been nicer in helping accommodate us and help get us parked. And the campground was quiet at night. Yes, we would stay again, if we could get a better site. - alanez

The campground offered quite a few vacant sites because it was after the regular season. The owner and another camper were very accommodating and friendly. We stayed an extra day for that reason.It rained quite heavily and the power was off throughout the area for a few hours. The owner came to ensure all was good with us. She also came to say goodbye when we were leaving. That happens at very few campgrounds and this owner could teach many owners how to accommodate guests. - camperme

Very nice little camp ground. Exceptionally clean and hosts were very nice. Sites were quite level and nice and long. Bathroom was very clean. Would certainly stay here again and would recommend others to as well. - ken king
