    Herring Cove Provincial Park is located on Campobello Island, reachable via the International Bridge from Lubec, ME. One can also get to Campobello via two ferries from mainland New Brunswick via Deer Island. The main attraction here is the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, featuring the summer cottage of the Roosevelt family.

    Plenty of sites to choose from when we arrived on a summer Monday afternoon. There's a site for every taste here - full sun, full woods, or a little of each. Site 1 is representative of the last, which is where we chose to camp. Shade most of the day, with a little late afternoon sun coming in.

    Date of visit: Aug 2009

    Across from sites 1-6 is a large open field with pull-through sites. All the sites in this first loop have electric hookups. Water taps are centrally located where you can fill your tank.

    This is a neat little thing I've never seen before - a large metal mushroom with water running down over the top. Great fun for the kds to run around/under.

    Site 47 is very representative of the wooded sites - they all look alike.
