Roosevelt Campobello International Park

As a child, Franklin Delano Roosevelt fell in love with Campobello Island.

Roosevelt’s family summered on the island, where the young boy relished the open space and untamed backwoods. Campobello remained a favorite spot after FDR became an adult, although his visits diminished after he began using a wheelchair.

Roosevelt’s “beloved island” is now Roosevelt Campobello International Park. Situated on Canadian ground, it serves as a memorial to the American president and his family, and to the friendship between the United States and Canada.

The Edmund S. Muskie Visitor Center offers exhibits and a film about Roosevelt’s life. Tour the elegant 34-room “summer home,” furnished with pieces from the era, and take a stroll through the lovely flower gardens.

Behind the house, you’ll find the true treasure of Campobello—the 2,600 acres of forest, bogs, and rugged shoreline that FDR explored as a child and escaped to as a man.

Wander quiet paths through shaded woods and emerge on the crest of a rocky cliff. Make your way down to the beach or take a picnic by the Mulholland Point Lighthouse. Look out over the foggy bays toward FDR Memorial Bridge and the Channel Lighthouse.
