Whoever claimed that this campground isn't big enough for large rigs didn't do much research. We were in the fully serviced sites, A1-A10, and they are huge and quite private. We did have a problem with the 50A receptacle which our power management system wouldn't connect to, but we were fine on 30A. The highway (114) down to Alma is steep, but you'll be fine if you go slowly. Just remember to gear down. The WiFi was great especially since we couldn't get our Rogers network cellular modem to work. We did have Verizon voice service on our phones, but no data signal. The WiFi did go out for ~36 hours during a rainstorm and it can be pretty boring, since there is absolutely no other way to get online that we could figure out. BTW, satellite TV is a no go because of the tree cover. But it is still another wonderful Canadian National Park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent 3 nights exploring the area in and around the park. We had one of the fully serviced pull-through sites, it worked well for us. Other than getting our rig leveled (the utility connections are not in the most level areas of the site. Wi-Fi in a National Park was a plus, but the signal was weak which I solved with a repeater. A great location to explore the area. Don't miss Hopewell Rocks! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found Route 10 to Alma to be bumpy and tough on the travel trailer at times. The campground is in a heavily forested area; our spot was level and large. The comfort station was clean and modern. There was a neat gathering house for Wi-Fi, to do dishes, and meet other travelers. Apparently, it comes in handy during bad weather and avoiding swarming insects. Insects were numerous until a wind picked up. There is a gift shop a few km away, but no interpretive center or naturalists to tell us about the Bay of Fundy or local ecology. It was amazing to walk to the low tide level. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Another really nice Provincial park with full services. Our campsite was a pull though with good 50 amp power, water pressure was a little high and sewer connections were good. The sites were level and long without any overhanging tree limbs. The free Internet connection was weak but usable. Sometime we would drive up by the check-in building for a better Internet connection. The internal wide roads were great--asphalt. The cost was low but one has to pay a Provincial park fee for each day one is in the park. There were some nice hiking trails. The town of Alma was close by and we could watch the lobster boats come in around mid morning and buy lobsters in local fish houses. We would certainly stay in this park again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Outstanding campground in Fundy National Park! Hikes and sights kept us busy for several days. We stayed in Chignecto North in one of 10 pull thrus with full hookups including 50amp. We got partial Dish satellite reception from our heavily wooded site. Wifi is only available close to the transmitters at the entry station or bathrooms. The roads going to the park are heavily patched and rough. At present, the coastal road from Moncton to Alma is rougher than going to the park from the north on Highway 1 and 114. From earlier reviews I was concerned about the steep hill up from the Alma entrance to Chignecto but the climb was not that bad and I have a heavy RV. I like that you can see pictures of some of the sites as well as site dimensions on Fundy’s online reservation web site. Rate shown doesn't reflect additional park usage fee. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A big campground with a lot of loops, roomy and wooded sites set in groups of cul de sacs branching off roads. Weeds could have used some trimming. Bathroom was modern but had a somewhat annoying push button shower system that required constant pushing to keep activated and released a spray mist that wet down everything in the stall. The National Park roads are nice but roads are bad to get down here (and back) from the main highway. The town of Alma near the park has a small market, restaurants, fish market, gas station and a bakery with great sweet rolls. We stayed two nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great Canadian National Park. The highway getting to it was in serious need of maintenance but at the park boundary, brand new blacktop. We discovered that Chignecto and Chignecto North campgrounds are accessed from the same road from Highway 114. After we turned around and came back up the big hill from the town of Alma. Sites are clean and spacious set apart at a comfortable distance from your neighbours. To use the Wi-Fi, we took our vehicle and laptop to the main entrance, close to the antenna. Very busy and noisy on the July 1st evening but the rest of the weekend was very quiet, close to nature, and relaxing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a really nice campground in Fundy National Park. The cost is an estimate because I lost the receipt, but it is close. We bought the Parc Canada Pass to get this good price. The camp sites are what most people want in a campground in that they are spacious, woodsy and perfect for a campfire. We were delighted to learn that wi-fi was available and for free. Just park somewhat near the restrooms and you will get a decent signal. The check in is smooth as one would expect from National Park Canada employees. Having 2-way connection was also nice. This park is not far from Alma where there are stores and restaurants and a view of the Fundy tide influence. Would definitely return here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in Chignecto North CG. There are two others. (Headquarters and Point Wolfe (closes about first few days of September) Chignecto North is a few miles from Alma and in the highlands. Headquarters is a much smaller campground and the sites are closer together but very near Alma and a lower elevation than Chignecto North. If you are close to the entrance kiosk in Chig. N., with a pull through, Wi-Fi works. If in a wooded area elsewhere, no Wi-Fi. Most of the back-ins are spacious with some privacy. Chig. N. is a very wooded area. This is a beautiful national park with a golf course. Great seafood in Alma. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped in the Chignecto Campground in their unserviced area. It was fabulous. Sites were large and reasonably level and spotless. Roads were a little narrow in spots. Staff was very helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here one night at Chignecto campground, one of two campgrounds in the park; would have liked to stay more. The campground was great, clean, well maintained. We had full hookups. There are even cooking pavilions with a wood stove and sinks. There are hiking and biking trails and beautiful views of Fundy Bay and the Tidal basin. There is a steep downgrade on the road to the town called Alma, a charming town with a beach, restaurants and good lobster. You can get firewood at the park, pay $6 and they give you a burlap bag that you can fill with as much wood as you can carry. The park is about 40 minutes drive from the Hopewell Rocks, which is a must see if you want to see the spectacular tidal changes. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in Chignecto North. The paved roads in the park were good, but the entrance road was marginal. Watch your speed. The site was gravel, mostly level, wooded and large. Hook-ups were easily accessible, but the sewer pipe was well above ground level. No WiFi at the site. Well-maintained and clean. An excellent spot to tour the park by car, visit Alama, and the Hopewell Rocks. Many trails to hike, if you are so inclined. Check the other fees necessary to stay in the Canadian Parks System. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't know: over $30 seems alot for a National, Provincial or State Park to me just having power & water. Having said that, this park is beautiful. There is no such thing as a bad site. All are big and well separated. I paced one site out at an easy in-excess of 100' long! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here at Site 12 in Chignecto North. It was level for our trailer and a bit of a hike to the washrooms but that was ok. Fundy NP is a beautiful National Park. Yes our National Parks are expensive, especially when you add in the daily entrance fee, but they are well worth the visit. Alma, NB is a couple of minutes drive from the park where you can watch the tides, buy local lobster and stock up on supplies. The Hopewell Rocks are not far either, as well as Cape Enrage. Fundy NP is a must stop on any visit to Atlantic Canada. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We were in the North area. Although we had a site rated for a big-rig, it was tight. Did not see any other sites that would have been better: many would have been worse. The problem comes from the overhanging trees and the fact that the entrances or opening to the sites are not trimmed back. Other than sewer, the site had all the hookups. There are 5 or 6 dump stations so you do not have to wait in line. Great value and also the fact that you are in the woods. Hiking is good around the site. If you go to Hopewell Rocks (a must see), try to have breakfast at the "Dude Ranch" on Hwy 114, it's a great meal. Would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were in site #129 & 130 for 3 nights. This was in one of the northern loops as seen in the campground map. Very good tree cover. Short walks to 2 bathrooms/showers which were spotless. Spacious sites. On our second night, the campground was full (Friday night). You saw more traffic, but overall noise was ok. Quiet time was respected by all. Check-in process is painless. Short drive to Alma makes refuelling of supplies quick, but very busy during peak hours. We camped here in a Tent.
We had a wonderful camping experience in this beautiful National Park campground, Fundy/Chignecto North. We were traveling late in August, and had no difficulty in obtaining a site. Our pull-though site was very large, and privacy was offered by the trees that provided screening between sites. There was an area nearby that had the bathrooms, a laundry building, a kitchen building with cooking facilities and a wood-burning fireplace, and a playground. There is so much to see and do in Fundy National Park; nature programs, many walking/hiking trails, a golf course, and a beach where the phenomenon of the tides of Fundy is plainly seen. Although the campground itself does not have a swimming pool, there is a pool in the National Park, which is available for a small fee. This is a truly great place to camp. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Fundy National Park has two camping areas...Headquarters and Chignecto. We always go to Chignecto. Sites are huge with 50 - 100 feet of woodland separating campers. Totally wooded sites. In some cases, you can't even see your neighbor. Park is very clean with many hiking trails. Only two small playgrounds for the kiddies. No pool. Only downside is that flies during the Summer months are crazy! We generally only go to Fundy in the Spring or Fall. If you go, be sure to stop at Kelly's Bake Shop in Alma!! Lot's of yummy treats! Especially their date-filled cookies! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The biggest advantage here is the location. You can see the bay from the campground entrance. Alma, the closest town is within walking distance, via the roadside sidewalk or steps from the campground. This location is nice to watch the tide if you're not going to Hopewell Rocks. The sites are very small and there is no privacy. I recommend that you NOT choose sites 25, 26, 27, 28, or 29. These are very close to the shower house and the path that connects the camper section from the yurts. We were in #27 and people were constantly walking thru our site. This was a noise and a privacy (what little there was) issue. Camp fires are not permitted in this campground, in case that's important to you. Would I stay here again? Only if the other campgrounds were closed or full. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are fairly open but with plenty of space between neighbors. Fundy NP itself is amazing and this campground is ideally located. We had solid WiFi at our site near the check-in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fundy National Park is beautiful and if you have a larger motor home, the Headquarters campground may be the only one that will fit you. Point Wolfe is almost all tents and to get there you have to go through a covered bridge that has a tight turn into it. Chignecto is more accessible, but not for larger motor homes. We had a 30 amp site at Headquarters. I doubt they have many 50 amp sites. I'd plan on 30 amps. Our site was easy in and easy out and fairly large. There is a wonderful playground across the road for kids. Our grand kids loved the small zip line. Also nearby is the town of Alma. Some very good restaurants and great seafood. The salt water pool is about 1 kilometer away. We would come back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Outstanding park, beautiful setting. The sites are long, wide, easily accessible and the nearby town of Alma with its view of the 35' tides is only about a kilometer away. I had no problem with my 39' coach and vehicle. The experience was made so much more pleasurable by the young park employee who greeted us and signed us in. She answered all my questions and provided much-needed travel information for exiting the park. Her sunny disposition and smile made for a perfect welcome to the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The best campground yet! It was pricey when you consider the entry fee, but there is so much to do there. The sites are very private, the bathrooms are very clean. There was a nice indoor cooking area if it were to rain, complete with a sink, picnic tables and wood stoves. There was Wi-Fi, but only at the front entrance, which didn't help us at all. The showers could have been warmer (push button, no temp control), but were acceptable. Definitely a favorite and we'll be back! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed in the Headquarters part of the park. It was a nice site with adequate room between sites. It seemed family friendly and had W-iFI (a big plus). We were surprised about the road in from 1. It was very hilly. We unhooked our toad at the lookout before the last down hill and were happy we did so. If you are coming from the Moncton area, would suggest the road that skirts the coast. It might be longer than using 1, but much easier. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fundy National Park has several campgrounds. We stayed in the Headquarters Campground next to the visitor's center and the town of Alma, which is right on the bay of Fundy. This is one of the best National Park campgrounds we've stayed in, both in the US and Canada. We had full hook-ups with excellent Wi-Fi, a first in our national park experience. The only road into Fundy is Hwy 114, which is in very rough shape. Both our sofa and TV set were sideways when we got here, and opening the cabinets was a bit of a challenge. We were here in Spring, and as apparently typical for New Brunswick, the most plentiful wildlife in the park is the black fly, so be sure to have plenty of bug spray with you. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful National Park. We were in one of the 10 full service sites. During the busy summer season these fill up fast so reservations are a must. So much to see and do in the area. Alma is just down the road. Could spend the day there talking to the locals and enjoying the good food and watching the tides change. If we are fortunate enough to come back to New Brunswick we would certainly stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped in a 40 footer with full hookups and WiFi and the WiFi worked! We stayed 3 days and wished we had more time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites were large and private. Lots of trails here to bike, hike or take the dogs. One of our favorite sites and one of our highest rated sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great National Park, quiet, lots of privacy, not too brushy. Rate we used was for electric and water with a pass. The pass is very good value (new this year) good not just for camping but all National attractions and good for a year. We used at Louisbourg and saved $35.00. The other reviewer is spot on: Tides Restaurant has the best shrimp I have ever had. Would come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We didn't make reservations and so we on a "no service" site in our motorhome. It was more suitable for tenting. There were many vacant, nicer sites that never were taken during our 2 night stay. the price for 2 nights was $78.20, no hookups. It included admittance to the "park". It was the biggest rip-off that we've ever had for camping and I would never camp at another National Park in Canada. On the plus side: the showers were fine and free of cost. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As some have stated, the FHU (incl. 50 amp) camping fee is $35, but you will also need daily park permits (or annual passes) for each camping member. Friends gave us the gift of covering the park permit parts so that made the decision to stay here MUCH easier! At $50 per night I'm not sure I would've signed us up, that's a pretty big splurge! But having said all that, it's a gorgeous park! We stayed in Chignecto North in site A 3, which was a pull-through. Sites A 1-10 all looked to be pull-throughs and a lot of green space between sites. I don't think you can reserve a specific site ahead of time though, the cg workers do that when you get there. Awesome hikes. Great trails all over to walk pets too. Very quiet CG, esp. at night! The Tides restaurant down the hill in Alma has the BEST shrimp I have EVER had! A lot of folks rave about Hopewell Rocks, so we went. Pretty much felt ripped-off and disappointed. If you know the Oregon coastline, don't bother with this bit. If not, maybe it's worth the $8/person or whatever. So only complaints are too expensive and low water pressure. Otherwise, love it! One of my favorite spots! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at Headquarters Campground. It's very convenient to Alma, NB. You easily walk there to view the bay or to eat. Many hiking trails are available from the campground or within easy driving distance. The sites were level, shady and the grounds were clean. It is very quiet and relaxing. We would return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent two nights here. This was not nearly enough, there is so much to do. Lots of really nice walking trails, pool, beach walking, biking, canoeing. A real treat for the nature types. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed 1 night at Headquarters Campground. It's very convenient. You can walk to Alma Beach to view the bay or to head into Alma for food. You can walk to a saltwater pool, the visitors center, hiking trails. The hookups worked fine. The bathrooms were clean. It was quiet. Campfires are not allowed here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fundy National Park is gorgeous and the campground is excellent. The sites are not large, but they are comfortable. The park is expensive when you add the daily fee for National Park Admission. Since we were also planning on a visit to PEI National Park we purchased an annual family pass which saved a few dollars. There is a swimming pool in the park, but it is not in the campground. We would definitely stay here again when we return to this part of new Brunswick. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A pleasant place with good power on its very limited number of full hook-up sites. It does get pricey when you add the cost of the daily park entry fee of $7. Sat dish worked fine and probably would in 50% of the full hook-up sites. Access was good for big rigs and spacing between sites appeared fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
At the Headquarters campground, full hookup sites are limited (27 or so). The rest are no hookups. Very nice shaded sites. The restroom and showers are very clean. Convenient to the town of Alma. We bought cooked lobster in town at one of the seafood sellers and spread out newspapers on our picnic table to dine al fresco. A highlight of our trip. Would definitely say here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great Canadian National Park. We stayed at Headquarters, which is down on the water and where it is easy to watch the phenomenal tide changes each day. There are some nice hikes out of Headquarters that take you along the cliffs above the Bay of Fundy. The park also has well maintained grounds, with beautiful annual beds scattered about (very Canadian!). There is a cute little town adjacent to the park with craft shops and places to eat. Alma is in the English speaking part of NB, which helps. The pool was $$$ and full of kids. Don't plan to swim laps. We had a nice stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I am not sure of the number of sites in Fundy but the serviced area at Headquarters had almost 50 sites. Fundy is a great place to hike, swim, ocean touring, play golf, tennis, and watch the biggest tides come in and out of the Bay of Fundy. There are three family campgrounds and two have electricity. Headquarters is the only one with electricity, water and sewers and the best view of the tides and within walking distance to Alma the golf course, visitor center etc, but the others have their advantages check out their web site – Chignecto has large wooded sites with some electricity but nice bike trails; Point Wolfe has few sites but they are open, quiet with swimming and great views. There are also a number of back country sites and primitive areas available. They have ranger programs every night alternating nightly in English or French and walks led by the rangers during the day. We have camped and visited Fundy over the last 40 years more than 5 times and love it. It is very near Hopewell Rocks which is a must see! The only negative thing is that Canada (National Parks) now charge for not only the campground but to get into the park – a daily rate which I think is high $8 per adult per day. If you have children who are over 16 they are charged the adult rate per day. So, for the 4 of us the camping rate was over 30 with w/e/s and then a daily rate of 32 dollars on top of that plus the $11 reservation. If you are planning to stay for a few days which most campers do the fees add up. At least the US National Parks the rate charged is for everyone in the car and it is for 5 days or even more in some parks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in "Headquarters" campground. It's not as private as Chinetgo, but not bad. It's location is very handy to golf and views. It takes only 5 minutes to ride down the hill to the town of Alma. For those needing internet access, the Information Center in Alma offers DSL service at nominal rates. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
For tent camping, the sites are huge, lots of trees between sites, we were in a populated area and never really noticed anybody was around. Facilities was top notch. Showers were hot, clean and well lit. Will return. We camped here in a Tent.
Beautiful area. Sites are well divided and somewhat secluded. Rest rooms were clean and well maintained. Showers were nice once I figured out how to work them. No choice in the temperature, just on or off. The trails and overlooks in the park are incredible. absolutely breathtaking. We wished we had more then two days to hike and tour the park and the area. GREAT bakery in Alma. Park personnel were really friendly. Great place to visit. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
