Mouth of the Magaguadavic Camping

20 sites · RVs, Tents100 acres · Caithness, NB
Situated in Caithness, New Brunswick, where the Magaguadavic River meets the Passamaquoddy Bay on the Bay of Fundy. Once owned by high profile Saint Andrews-By-The-Sea resident, Robert Pagan, the property, like other properties in the area, were granted to American Loyalist Solders of Scottish Highlanders, and named for Caithness, Scotland, the place where Golf began. When the US Revolutionary War ended, the King of Holland was chosen to define the boundary between the United States and Canada. He chose the “St Croix River”. The problem was, nobody knew where the St Croix River was. That name had been used by the French, but had not been used in a very long time. Canadians believe the Schoduc River was the St Croix. American’s believe the Wolastoq River (now called the St John River) was the St Croix River. The local North American Indigenous people (the MicMacs or Mi'kmaqs) told Robert Pagan of a place called “Bone Island” where their history told of Europeans living and dying there. Pagan did an archaeological dig on “Bone Island” and found the remains of the French colonists and their settlement. This proved “Bone Island”, also known as “Dochet Island” or “Saint Croix Island", was the site of Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Monts' ill-fated 1604 settlement. Based on this, the Boundary Commission agreed that the Schoduc River was the Saint Croix River and therefore, the international boundary between Canada and America. The survivors of the 1604/1605 winter move from St Croix Island to Port-Royal in Nova Scotia (two years before the European arrival in Jamestown, Virginia). Without the work of Robert Pagan, this campsite and half of New Brunswick, including the Capital City of Fredericton and half of the City of Saint John would have been part of Province of Massachusetts Bay (later Maine). In the 1800's this property was part of a 1000 acre lot of land owned by two brother McKenzie, who were Sea Captains. Since the late 1960s, the property was the summer home of Ben and Marg Leland, parents to 14 children and 50 grandchildren. Today, there are four (4) separate fields available for campers - Barnes' Point, Charlies Garden, the Villa Point and the Main Beach. The property has thousands of feet of shoreline and several beaches to enjoy. We even have our own private island, Blueberry Island. A really unique and quiet place to stay. Learn more about this land: Natural long grass fields for camping, some mowed midseason. There are several shale beaches on the tidal salt water. There is also access to the Fresh Water of the Magaguadavic River. Kayakers looking for more of a challenge may choose to paddle the Salt Waters of the Passamaquoddy Bay past Midjik Bluff. Those looking for calmer and warmer waters, may want to choose to go from the campsite, up the Magaguadavic River to the beautiful Saint George Basin and the Saint George Gorge, passing the Three Sisters and the newest Bald Eagles Nest (at the most eastern end of the Campsite). Pass by Silver Island arriving at the Saint George Basin. Disembark at the Basin Boat Ramp and take a short walk up Portage Street to Main Street. Enjoy an ice cream at Pete’s Dairy Bar. Also a short walk to the Saint George Mall, the Historic Granite Post Officer, the Saint George Dam, Fish Ladder, the Old Pulp Mill, the Country Market, and more. A quiet spot, away from noise and light pollution, where the fresh water meets the salt water. WiFi Connection 01: TP-Link_33DD_2G WiFi Connection 02: TP-Link_33DD_5G WiFi Password: 47528963

Camping in New Brunswick with hiking guide

Overview

Having flown under the radar for quite some time, New Brunsick is one of Canada’s most intriguing spots, sandwiched between Maine in the United States to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Evidence of Acadian and First Nations cultures is everywhere, from food to historical sites, and the famed Bay of Fundy offers sandy beaches and coastlines forged by the world’s highest tides. The towns of Saint John, Fredericton, and Moncton serve as gateways to expansive national and provincial parks, meaning that New Brunswick campgrounds and RV parks make for great spots to stay the night as you get out into nature. Though most campers visit in summer for warmth or fall as the leaves change, cold-weather activities and snowy glamping opportunities in chalets are winter draws.

Eastern Fundy Shore

The Bay of Fundy is known for having the highest tides in the world—you can either walk the ocean floor when the tide is out, or kayak among the tall flowerpot rocks when it’s in. The waterfront town of Alma serves as the gateway to Fundy National Park, a New Brunswick must-see with two dozen waterfalls, countless hiking trails, and even a swimming pool and golf course. Park camping options include front-country and backcountry campsites, yurts, cabins, and RV camping with hookups.

Moncton and Kouchibouguac National Park

From Moncton, you can access the white sands at Parlee Beach Provincial Park, the town of Shediac (the self-proclaimed lobster capital of the world, complete with massive, climbable lobster at the town entrance), and a handful of RV resort parks. Drive up the eastern coast to explore sand dunes, salt marshes, and forest trails in Kouchibouguac National Park, a Canadian Dark Sky Preserve.

Saint John and the Bay of Fundy

Set on the Bay of Fundy and easily accessed from the U.S. border, the former industrial town of Saint John is the most well-known in New Brunswick. It’d be hard to visit the province without a stop in at the breweries and boutiques here, but the port city is also surrounded by nature and opportunities for beach camping and RV stays. RV and tent camping can be found right in Saint John, while oceanfront campgrounds dot the nearby resort town of Saint Andrews.

Northern New Brunswick

The sparsely populated northern part of New Brunswick is known for remote camping and hiking opportunities. Climb the province's highest peaks and get treated to a view of 10 million trees in Mount Carleton Provincial Park, or head east to Caraquet, the heart of Acadian New Brunswick, to gorge on traditional foods and immerse yourself in the unique culture.
