East Quoddy Head

Campobello Island sits at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy in southernmost New Brunswick, just over the International Bridge from Maine. A century ago this island was the summer haunt of many rich and famous families, including that of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who would one day become the president of the United States.

The island is rural in character, uncrowded and very scenic. It can only be reached by one bridge, from Lubec, Maine, or by a seasonal ferry from the New Brunswick mainland, via Deer Island.

The same things that once drew some of the most wealthy people in North America, now lure tens of thousands of tourists of average means. It is an ideal destination for those who enjoy outdoor activities amist scenic splendor. The history buff will also find much of interest here, including old mansions and even older lighthouses.
