4 Parks near Saint John, New Brunswick
Sep 2016 - $30.00
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

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 is a great park and campground for privacy and beauty. The beautiful sandy beach is a short walk from the campsites. This sites are private with evergreens between each site. Sites are power supplied only but the washrooms are great, modern and clean. We definitely recommend this campground for a short stop over for a few days. Lots of hiking trails and close to heritage towns and cities. - Pinkito

What a Wonderful campground ! A favorable exchange rate helps the rate (in US $), but this park doesn't really Need any help -- just a Fabulous place. No water, sewer or WiFi at any NB provincial parks, otherwise would be a 10, does have good 30a elec. The park has: short walk to Excellent beach, secluded campsites - couldn't barely even see the neighbors, laundry (1.50C wash 1.25C dry), seasonal 5 month sites available ($1500C) through lottery, a few antenna tv stations from Saint John, Bell telephone service, and a cool ocean breeze - even in July. Plenty of room for my 33' 5th wheel although do be careful in choosing your site when making your online reservation. Grocery and fuel are a few miles away in Saint John along with other attractions, but if you added some Palm trees you might be on a tropical island with beach. Not only would I stay here again if in the area, but would consider entering the lottery for a seasonal site and just Stay here... for the duration ! - SailorGolf

We arrived late at night and had to park in the front parking lot with no hookups due to our size. But they gave us a $2 discount. Walmart would have been cheaper, but we had a great walk on the shore the next morning, which gave us a good memory of that trip. - boondocked
