The Orchard - Bell Tent Glamping NB

4 sites · Lodging100 acres · Tay Creek, NB
Located only 25 minutes from Fredericton, NB, this sprawling old-growth apple orchard features 3 privately placed bell tents, a hot-tub, barbecues, and indoor lodge with kitchen, bathroom, games room, and library space. Described by a past guest as "something out of a fairytale", the orchard is defined by towering old-growth apple trees, a meandering brook with multiple bridge crossings, meadows brimming with lupins and golden rod, the remnants of stone fences from when the land was farmed, patches of wild berries, and a growing network of trails connecting all these enchanting elements. Perhaps even more beautiful after sunset, strings of fairy lights illuminate the paths to the tent sites and fireflies fill the void in between. An unofficial dark sky sanctuary, you will enjoy unparalleled views of the stars while your ears are treated to the distant calls of bullfrogs and the hoot of owls flying overhead. We look forward to welcoming you to the fairytale orchard!

Trip 'n Daisy's Hippie Hangout

11 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents50 acres · NB
Trip 'n Daisy and their little shih tzu McGee live in rural New Brunswick, nestled on 50 acres of mostly forested land. We treasure where we live, the long winding country roads, the pristine lakes and rivers nearby. We live in nature and respect it. Wildlife is abundant and being on a game trail we regularly see wild turkeys, porcupines, raccoons, skunk, fox, coyote, deer, moose, bear and whatever else mosey's on by! Bring a camera, you never know who might come to visit! Along the Chiputneticook lakes and river crossings, there are multiple lakes near by and a creeks and rivers that used to be used as the main method of transportation of food and goods along the way - from the Saint John River to the St. Croix River, there is much history and many untouched areas that remain mostly in their natural state. We are located 2 minutes (drive) near East Grand Lake, we are on Forest City Road, Fosterville, which is located between 2 border crossings - Fosterville, NB/Orient, ME and Forest City, NB/Forest City, ME. So whether you are heading to or from the USA, or exploring New Brunswick you can find us here! We are about 1 hour from Woodstock, NB, 1.5 hours from Fredericton, NB, 45 minutes from Houlton, ME or 25 to Danforth, ME. We are about 2.5 hours to Edmunston, NB and the Quebec border crossing, 3 hours to Moncton or Saint John, NB. You can access many trails to hike, bike, ATV, walk. There are many lakes/rivers to swim, boat, kayak or canoe. Book a space - you can rent our Aliner Hippie Peace and Love Shack OR our vintage 1973 Golden Falcon which has been tripped out '60's style! You can bring an RV or trailer - max 30 feet - we find that A Class motor homes are often too big or heavy so don't recommend them. We have 3 spaces for RV's & trailers that belong to YOU! On our property you will be surrounded by ash and pine trees. A large weeping willow. There is an outhouse available, garbage and recycling, if in an RV or trailer we have 3 spots that provide 30amp power and water is available by hose to fill up if needed. Tents - we have many spaces but your location will be your choice, find a nice spot, that is flat. The outhouse is available. There are no showers on site at this time, however, the lake is lovely! This is a rustic, restful place for quiet, respite, sharing community and being a trippie hippie! We are starting out offering 6 tenting sites - you choose your site upon arrival. We have an arts/craft gallery on site as well as a darts room for a rainy night! Wifi and cell service are not available here, if you are on US roaming you can get service and some cell providers provide spotty service. There is a public wifi location 5 minutes away if you need to connect. We have a landline for emergencies. Trip 'n Daisy have traveled throughout Atlantic Canada including Newfoundland in their vintage Hippie Hangout 1973 Golden Falcon - it is now available to rent - you can sleep 2 to 3 people comfortably in the space. It is decked out with a cool '60's vibe - hand painted inside and out with Trip's artful flair and includes a toilet, sinks, fridge, cooktop, water, table/dinette that flips into the second bed. Dishes/pots/basic cooking needs, etc. Bedding can be included for an extra fee - but you can bring your own! They also towed their Aliner pop up trailer - the Hippie Peace & Love Shack. It includes an RV size double bed, suitable for a couple as well as a dinette that folds into a second single bed. There is a fridge, cooktop and table/dinette that flips into a second single bed. There is no toilet but we have added a cassette toilet for you, for night use, and there is water in the space. Again, we recommend you bring your own bedding but we can supply for an additional fee. We do have access to Electric Vehicle charging - either a wall outlet Level 1 or a Level 2 charger - which is free for 2 hours or for a fee for longer charges. We have lawn furniture on the grounds to share and to use around the communal fire pit. Fire pit in one location only and based on current fire rules/bans. There are NO stores or gas stations nearby, so please ensure you fill up with supplies/fuel before venturing down the country road! Full details on site location and instructions for driving will be supplied upon booking. Due to wildlife in the area we REQUIRE that ALL food is put away at night and during the day when not eating. If you are tenting please bring a secure cooler and place in locked vehicles at night. We have a dog and he is ALWAYS on leash - if you bring a dog - you MUST ALWAYS pick up after it (our dog does not use our yard as a toilet, so we prefer yours doesn't either); dogs must be on leash and/or in a secure fenced area. This is not only for our dogs safety, but for yours, remember wildlife! We have been here for 13 years, as British Columbian transplants, we love this property and home and hope that you have a great experience as well! When camping we will always have one person available if you need us! Many people like to call this a home base as they travel across the USA border for day trips or to shop! Feel free to do so! Because Trip 'n Daisy are trippy hippies and enjoy nature, we recommend adults are most suitable for this site. Peace and love, Trip 'n Daisy Feel free to message with any questions, the more information you have, the better!

Have a siesta or read a book while relaxing in your hammocks.  Stroll through paths or the Shore Road, and Relax in various seating areas throughout our property. If you plan on going fishing, it is your responsibility to check with Natural Resources and Energy Development for license information.  We do not provide fishing gear. Cumberland Bay is a small community, centrally located between three major New Brunswick cities (Fredericton, Moncton, and Saint John).  It has it's own volunteer Fire Department, churches, and a small public wharf nearby (The Range Wharf). The nearby communities of Young's Cove, Waterborough, and Chipman are all within a 10 to 15 minute drive.  You'll find churches, convenience stores, gas bars, take-outs, local markets, public swimming, marina, and boat launch.  In your vacation rental, there is a Welcome Binder with detailed information about these places.

My dream has always been to have a farm to share all the beautiful abundance of life and lots of space to play. Since 2008, I have worked in my home studio sewing Hanging HUGS custom luxury hammocks and shipping them around the world to make the world a cozy place. HUGS have also funded my world travels and humanitarian projects, teaching many people how to make hammocks. You too can learn to sew your own HUG and enjoy it here. An expedition sea kayaker and expert rock climber with more than 20 years experience giving clients a unique look at our province, it's my pleasure to introduce you to my favourite spots. Our sailboat is spacious, comfortable and fun... ready when you are. This farm is a school of life. I am happy to share what I have learned about growing food, and my wife is an amazing cook who can teach how to make Korean food. Lots to do to fill a week, or just kick back in a hammock for a day by the pond, writing journal to reflect, soaking in the peaceful feelings. Learn more about this land: 1800's homestead near Jemseg River where our sailboat is moored. Gardens are abundant, kayaking is beautiful, fishing is good, and swimming is great! Welcome home!

The best camping near Mactaquac Provincial Park guide

Overview

About

Mactaquac Provincial Park is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, offering a plethora of activities set against the backdrop of New Brunswick's stunning natural beauty. From the thrill of tobogganing down one of Canada's top sliding hills to the serenity of cross-country skiing on groomed trails, the park is a winter wonderland. In the warmer months, campers can enjoy a variety of sites, including rustic shelters and full-service options, all within the embrace of the park's scenic landscapes.

Notable campgrounds

  • Electrical Sites: Power up your adventure with convenient electrical hookups amid the park's natural splendour.
  • Full-Service Sites: Embrace the great outdoors with the comfort of full-service sites, perfect for a family getaway.
  • Rustic Shelters: For a more rugged experience, the rustic shelters offer a cosy retreat after a day of exploration.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early to secure your ideal campsite, especially during peak summer months when demand is high.
  • Consider visiting during the shoulder seasons for a quieter experience and easier reservation opportunities.
  • Keep an eye on cancellation policies and last-minute openings for unexpected opportunities to reserve a spot.
  • Explore nearby camping options to increase your chances of finding the perfect site during busy times.

When to go

The best time to visit Mactaquac Provincial Park is during the summer for camping and water activities. However, winter offers its own charm with snow-covered landscapes and a range of activities like tobogganing and ice skating. The park is open year-round, but always check ahead for weather conditions and seasonal closures.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's operating hours, which are daily from 8:30am to 4pm in the winter season.
  • Winter camping is un-serviced and requires experience in wilderness camping; reservations are essential.
  • Leashed dogs are welcome on trails, ensuring a pet-friendly adventure for the whole family.
  • Rental equipment for winter sports is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so plan accordingly.
  • Stay informed about weather conditions and trail closures by contacting the park directly before your visit.
