Park Overview

Since 1964, Roosevelt Campobello International Park has treated visitors to a unique vacation experience.


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.

FREE Admission Admission to the Park (including the Cottage) is FREE.


The Island's charm has captivated its residents and visitors since the 1800's, throughout the Roosevelt years, and still today.

In a manner symbolic of President Roosevelt's devotion to positive international relations, Canada and the United States came together to create this memorial to a U.S. President on Canadian soil.

"The [Park]... translates all the meanings Campobello had for President Roosevelt into a living memorial."
