The Roosevelt Campobello International Park Commission strives to make the Park accessible to everyone. Park drives lead to many areas from which scenic vistas can be enjoyed from a vehicle. Accessible areas and amenities at the Park include:
Eagle Hill Bog
Not all features of the Natural Area are available to those with mobility concerns
Driving - Natural Area drives are narrow gravel roads with numerous turnouts to permit passing. Please obey posted speed limits.
Hiking - Discretion is advised for those with small children. Sections of the Raccoon Beach- Liberty Point and Liberty Point-Lower Duck Pond Trails are close to high cliffs and ledges. Algae or moss-covered and wet logs and rocks can be slippery. Footwear for wet conditions is recommended.
Animals - Animals in the Park include, beaver, white-tail deer, moose, coyote, weasel, river otter, shrews, mice, voles, bobcat, red squirrel, varying hare, black bear, frogs, salamanders, snakes, and many species of birds. Red squirrels and varying hares are the two animals most often seen; black bear, bobcat, and moose are rare sightings. You should not approach any wild animal that appears tame or that acts in an unusual manner. Although rabies is present in New Brunswick, there have been no reported cases from Campobello Island.
Plants - To our knowledge, poison ivy is not present in the Park. We do have several plants that have poisonous berries that could cause problems if eaten. These include baneberry, clintonia, jack in the pulpit, and deadly nightshade.
Insects - Wasps, hornets, and bees are all potential problems to those with allergies to stings. In late July and August, hornets may build nests near trails. Biting insects include mosquitoes, blackflies, deerflies. Biting insects are fewer in number after mid-June. Although we may have small populations of some tick species, ticks have not been a problem.
