Nature, history, sightseeing, outdoor activity, or just a relaxing getaway – they’re all great reasons to experience the Park.

The Roosevelt Campobello International Park is located on Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada just across the international border from Lubec on the easternmost tip of Maine. The focal point of the Park, the Franklin D. Roosevelt summer cottage, and the Park’s Visitor Centre open the last Saturday in May and remain open twenty weeks. The Park grounds and Natural Area are open year round.

Roosevelt Campobello International Park is a singular example of international cooperation – jointly administered, staffed, and funded by the peoples of Canada and the United States. Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s magnificent summer home is preserved here in a combination indoor museum and outdoor nature park on Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada.

Plan to spend an hour touring the Visitor Centre, Roosevelt Cottage, and flower gardens. Spend several hours in the Park’s 1,134-hectare (2,800-acre) Natural Area, where you can explore walking trails, beaches, bogs, forest, and spectacular ocean headlands – or enjoy a picnic with an ocean or lighthouse view.

Admission to the park, including the cottage, is FREE!


Pets are allowed on Park grounds. Pets may not be left unattended and shall be on a six-foot leash at all times. With the exception of service dogs or sight-guiding dogs, pets are not allowed in Park buildings or shelters.

Your cooperation in maintaining the cleanliness of the grounds by properly curbing your pet is required.
