Welcome to unfiltered nature.

Explore a waterfront city with all of its restaurants and shops. Scale a mountain, whether to bike, ski, or hike it; park your RV or pitch your tent at a provincial park. Campbellton is the vacation gateway to a world of adventures in the Restigouche area: a large, wild, mountainous expanse in Northern New Brunswick. 

On the shores of Chaleur Bay, Campbellton is base camp for many adventures—so you can always choose a hotel room over a tent if that’s what you’re after.  At the mouth of the pristine Restigouche River, known worldwide for its salmon fishing, Campbellton’s backyard is Sugarloaf Provincial Park. It’s your playground for northern adventure – from excellent mountain biking to camping and hiking. The waterfront trail is a great spot for a picnic or to watch the sunset. And Salmon Plaza—with its iconic Restigouche Sam, the 8.5-m (28-ft.) shiny, stainless steel sculpture of an Atlantic salmon—makes it onto everyone’s camera roll. 

Ready to explore pure, unfiltered nature? From Chaleur Bay to Saint-Quentin and Kedgwick, the Restigouche region is a nature lover’s dreamscape. With two provincial parks—Sugarloaf and Mount Carleton—Restigouche is ideal for camping, canoeing, biking, hiking, ATVing, fishing, hunting, skiing, and snowmobiling. And the area’s rivers are beloved for fishing and paddling. Throughout, you’ll discover small, friendly communities where Scottish, English, French, Irish and First Nations create the area’s unique cultural blend.
