What travellers are saying
- Fundy National Park was practically empty in the middle of November, and I saw an approximate twenty (20) other visitors. While it was cold, I really had a great time at this park. Dickson Falls was a relatively easy trail that had wooden stairs; the panoramas of this waterfall were fantastic. I also got great views of Bennett Lake and the Caribou Plain. I did not encounter many animals besides the usual birds and rodents. I also enjoyed looking out at the Bay of Fundy, from Alma Beach, and the water was very rough and cold. The winter admission cost me eight dollars and fifty cents in Canadian dollars ($8.50 Canadian).Written November 22, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I thoroughly enjoyed my hike to see Dickson Falls. In November, a person could not drive to Dickson Falls, but it was about a walk of one (1) mile from the parking lot of the beach with the swimming pool. This hike was relatively easy, and there were wooden stairs to navigate. I enjoyed seeing these waterfalls at various times during their downward paths. The whole hike took me around thirty (30) minutes. It cost eight dollars and fifty cents in Canadian dollars ($8.50 Canadian).Written November 22, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- It is a wonderful hidden gem located near the entrance of Fundy Bay Provincial Park. It is a fairly easy walk in and the falls are stunning. I did not enjoy the hike back out as it was all uphill. It was difficult for me but we just took our time back out.Written September 29, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The best thing about this campground is its location. It’s within walking distance of Alma and the Bay of Fundy. It’s been around awhile and shows it’s age but when our sewer hookup didn’t work, they refunded that night’s stay and fixed it the next day (we arrived late on Sunday afternoon). The staff were very friendly and helpful. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.Written August 19, 2019
- Fun little spot to take pictures of tidal bore, little river, covered bridge and nice views out toward bay.Written August 11, 2022
- Just over 100 stairs take you to this beach which is a must see on every trip to Fundy. Lots of beach to walk at low tide.Rocky but fairly smooth.Written July 1, 2021
- The trail to this beach is closed but if you can find a way to get to the beach at low tide, it is a great beach to visit. A combination of sand and rock with views of cliffs, a covered bridge and the ocean.Written July 1, 2021
- This 5.2 k trail winds its way through dense woods and crosses several creeks. An old copper mine is at the mid point. It is a very rugged climb to see the old mine but if necessary, there is by pass that can be taken. The second part of the trail follows the cliff edge with fantastic views of the bay of Fundy and the water below. It took us 2.5 hrs to complete this trail.Written August 13, 2020
- This community opens its arms and makes you feel welcome. Wonderful and reasonable restaurants. The place to buy seafood.Written November 4, 2019
- In a previous review on Cape Breton Highlands National Park's Highlands Links course I described how Stanley Thompson, Canada's foremost golf course architect, was commissioned to build a series of golf courses in national parks from 1924 through 1948 resulting in a legacy that is now recognized as a national treasure. Three of these courses, Jasper Park, Banff Springs and Highlands Links are in the top ten in Canada and people come from around the world to play them. Often overlooked is the nine hole course Stanley designed in Fundy National Park, which is a shame because among nine hole courses it is rated by many as the best in Canada.
Unlike its big brothers in Jasper, Banff and Cape Breton, modesty is the watchword at Fundy Golf Course, starting with this minuscule pro shop. There is a dichotomy between the big three and Parks Canada's other golf courses which translates directly into course conditioning. Jasper Park and Banff Springs are part of the Fairmont resort system while Highlands Links is affiliated with Keltic Lodge, owned by multimillionaire Jim Balsillie. These courses are administered and maintained by those organizations, while the other Parks Canada courses have to compete for budget dollars with all the other amenities that the populace expects from our national park system. Ok, I'll stop beating around the bush - Fundy Golf Course is starved for money to keep it in the condition that Stanley Thompson would have expected when he designed the course.
The first is as dramatic a starting hole as you are going to find anywhere. You can from the photo included that the fairway is very burned with few green pathes . But you know what, poor conditioning is not going to overly detract from a great design, just as great conditioning won't gloss over a poor design. Now to be fair, in reading reviews of Fundy Golf Course on Trip Advisor from 2016 through 2018, nobody commented adversely on the state of the fairways and most said the course was well maintained so I am going to assume that the super dry summer of 2020 was largely responsible for the shape of the fairways.
The greens were in much better shape than the fairways and are notable for their minuscule size. Thompson has made full use of the natural rolling terrain and there are a number of elevated tees and elevated greens. The 240 yard par three has to be the longest from the whites in the country.
All round this is a great course that is having difficulty living up to its reputation due to conditioning issues. Still I would highly recommend it.Written October 31, 2020
- We've done many escape rooms and this one was possibly our favourite. The host was awesome. He knows so much about the history of the area and the escape room was lots of fun.Written July 17, 2022
- Did the Matthews head tour. Excellent experience. Amanda was a great tour guide, very professional and did a good explanation of how the bay of Fundy tides work. Interesting coastal scenery and a lovely picnic half way through, thoroughly recommended.Written September 21, 2023
