Cabins near Fredericton guide

Overview

From the Historic Garrison District where you can watch the Canadian Army’s changing of the guard reenactment to a hip urban core with a brewery trail, Fredericton is a fantastic city to spend a few days. Take a kayak tour of the Saint John River, or rent a bike to explore nature trails and historic neighbourhoods, then stay at one of several campgrounds and RV resorts in and around Fredericton. The city is perfectly situated to access some of New Brunswick's most beautiful parks for camping.

Where to go

Kouchibouguac National Park

Sitting on the Acadian Coast of New Brunswick, this stunning park combines lush forest with salt-marshes that are home to thousands of birds, and sandy beaches that spill into the warm ocean. Kouchibouguac offers amazing hiking, kayaking, fishing, clam digging, and all manner of Parks Canada-provided activities (including going out in a traditional Indigenous canoe). Year-round backcountry camping is available, as are seasonal serviced campsites and oTENTiks.

Bear Island

This tiny community is a great spot for hanging out in nature and having a low-key break, with some awesome attractions and a sweet campsite that comes with its own private beach, a swimming pool, and trails. Nearby in Nackawic is the World’s Largest Axe, a cable suspension bridge, and Howland Falls.

Mactaquac Provincial Park

This heavily wooded park was built for year-round camping. Aside from hiking, fishing, kayaking, and enjoying the numerous freshwater beaches, Mactaquac features a marina, an activity center, and ziplines. In winter, Mactaquac Provincial Park offers sleigh rides, groomed ski trails, skating, fat-bike rentals, and two groomed sledding hills.

When to go

Up until June, the weather in this part of New Brunswick can be pretty changeable (and cold and wet), but summers are warm and can be pleasant right through to the end of October, when fall kicks in along the Saint John River. You can experience everything Fredericton offers year-round, but some attractions and campsites outside of the city operate only on a seasonal basis.

Know before you go

  • Cell service in less-populated areas of New Brunswick can be patchy, so don't rely on your phone as your only map if going off into parks.
  • French is widely spoken in Fredericton, as New Brunswick is Canada's only legally bilingual province (and all services must be offered in both English and French). If travelling north of the city toward Quebec, you’ll find the French language much more commonly spoken.
  • Free camping on Crown Lands (as in owned by the government but not a designated park) is permitted for short periods in New Brunswick.
