Campbellton Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 2 photos

Home of the Acadians

Campbellton is about 1 and 1/2 hours east of the trans-Canada highway.

If driving a loop around Quebec's Gaspe Peninsula, you will eventually bump into it.

Campbellton is at the head of Bay Chaleur; Campbellton is at the mouth of the Restigouch river; Campbellton in almost undoubtedly the most northern point in New Brunswick. Cambbellton is also the home to a 21 & 1/2 foot long stainless steel Atlantic Salmon.

Campbellton is the northern most of a whole string of french language New Brunswick towns. They include: Dalhousie, Grand Sault, Tracadie etc. They trail all the way down to Moncton.

Campbellton is in "Acadia"; Acadia is those portions of New Brunswick where french speaking New Brunswickers live; French speaking New Brunswickers are known as Acadians.

North, across the river from Campbellton, across the iron bridge is the MicMac Nation Point La Croix Indian Reserve and Gaspesie Quebec. In and around Campbellton is forest and beautiful scenery. The scenery is especially beautiful in the fall. When the leaves change colour.

Forestry is a main industry. As is fishing. The Bay Chaleur people are friendly. And the odd person does, in fact, speak english.

    If i ever were to visit ottawa again for work, the acadia coast is one place which I would also love to visit. Is it difficult to get around in public transport and not knowing how to speak french?
