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

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!
