Where are we going today?

Welcome to this special Canadian Heritage protected area. One of two wilderness Canadian national parks in New Brunswick, Kouchibouguac is a fascinating mosaic of bogs, salt marshes, tidal rivers, sparkling freshwater systems, sheltered lagoons, abandoned fields and tall forests which characterizes the Maritime Plain Natural Region. Natural wonders abound in this Park that boasts the second largest tern colony in North America. As well, the 25 kilometres of shifting sand dunes are home to the endangered piping plover and witness to colonies of both harbour and grey seals that frolic in the sunshine on certain sections of the dunes. The name Kouchibouguac (Kou-she-boo-gwack) is of Mi'kmaq origin and means “river of the long tides”. Established in 1969, this 238 square kilometre national park provides a host of exciting family activities. The 60 kilometres of cycling paths are always popular with both hikers and cyclists. Canoeing/kayaking, swimming, camping, bird watching, as well as cross country skiing, snowshoeing and tobogganing in winter are also available in this natural land of enchantment located on New Brunswick's eastern coast line.

    We love this park. We are slightly disappointed that it has become less tent-friendly, and more full of campers. We love tenting and can no longer tent near the river or trails, since all of those sites are converted to accomodate campers. But I still give it a 4/5 because we always have a great experience and the staff are friendly and helpful.

    The park is a wonderful place to walk, bike, swim kayak and what have you. I'm a local resident and have been there literally hundred of times on it's beaches and trails... some of my best work (photography) is from Kouchibouguac National Park. The place is very well kept and although I don't know about the camping sites from my own experience, tourists I met tells me they are happy with there stay and camping sites.

    Disadvantage if any, is this park is a rather flat terrain so there is little of climbing...(100 ft elevation variation) however...Read More

    endroit de rêve je vais y retourner l'année prochaine, aussi bien au parc de Alma, la seule chose que je trouve négative c'est la température des douches qui n'est pas tres bonne pour se laver, si c 10 degres de plus ca serait parfait, le reste j'ai rien a dire.

Disadvantage if any, is this park is a rather flat terrain so there is little of climbing...(100 ft elevation variation) however this makes is ideal for snowshoeing, cross country skiing (winter) and biking, pleasure walking and even roller skating.
