Review: Fundy National Park

October 21, 2017
Bay of Fundy

Fundy National Park is located on the south coast of New Brunswick and is a reasonable drive from St John and Moncton.  Its draw is the Bay of Fundy which boasts some of the highest tides in the world.  This is one of the reasons UNESCO has designated the area as a World Heritage Site and it is well worth the honor.

The park itself is huge and has far more than just the tides.  There are a a number of campgrounds with excellent natural sites, some have WIFI and some even have views of the tidal basin.  The drives thru the park are very scenic with huge hills and amazing views similar to the TransCanada highway near Lake Superior Provincial Park on the Ontario coast of Lake Superior.  The park has a really nice pool, set right on the shore of the Bay of Fundy.  The pool has amazing views, almost as good as an infinity pool.  The town of Alma is a quaint little tourist town, but not over commercialized like Bar Harbor.  Hopewell Rocks is nearby along a very scenic highway drive along the coast of the Bay of Fundy.  The rock formations and caves that you can see at low tide are amazing, and another of the reasons this area holds the honor from UNESCO.  The Cape Enrage lighthouse is a short scenic drive along the coast.  It is worth the walk out to the lighthouse and down to the water at the bottom of the cliffs.

If you are ever in Eastern Canada, Fundy National Park should be one of the top picks to visit along with Cape Breton Highlands National Park and PEI National Park.
