7 Things To Do On Campobello Island

Just across the bridge from Lubec, Maine, picturesque Campobello Island lies waiting to enchant and surprise you. Spend a day (or two) and experience the unspoilt natural beauty and Maritime hospitality that made @campobelloca the favourite holiday spot of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt.

1. Lighthouses

Tour some of the oldest lightstations in Canada: Head Harbour Lightstation (said to be the most photographed lighthouse in Canada) and Mulholland Lighthouse.

2. Whale Watching

Set sail for the high seas and and watch whales of all sorts put on an unforgettable show.

3. Roosevelt Campobello International Park

Explore the summer home of Franklin D. Roosevelt. The 34-room cottage has been preserved and the grounds offer all manner of outdoor activities, from cliff-top hikes to strolling through the lush flower gardens.

4. Golf

The 9-hole course at Herring Cove Provincial Park isn't for the faint-of-heart golfer, but between its challenging holes and spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy, it'll have you crying "FORE!"

5. Galleries

A visit to The Owen House Country Inn and Gallery or the Friar's Bay Studio Gallery are the perfect activity for a rainy day on the island.

6. Outdoor Adventures

Hiking, camping, kayaking, geo-caching, swimming, bird watching, deep sea fishing, and more! Nature lovers will be delighted to discover the island's beautiful windswept beaches, spruce and fir forests, salt marshes and sphagnum bogs.

7. Seafood

Whether you eat it in a roll, all dressed up, or simply dipped in butter, no visit to Campobello is complete without lobster. Other delectable dishes to try? The famous fish and chips at @FamilyFishNB is a must.
