There are no bears, moose, coyotes, skunks, porcupines, or poisonous snakes on Grand Manan, so campers can sleep comfortably under the stars.
This wilderness campground is an Island attraction. Campers use the term “awesome” to describe our campground... Imagine camping under the stars, moon on the water, and just below your tent site, ocean lapping or crashing against the cliffs, whales and sea life communicating in the night, all surrounded with the scent of juniper and spruce trees.
The most popular hike is 10 minutes from a parking area through a wooded trail to the cliffs then left to the famous rock arch known as the Hole in the Wall ("HITW" on signs). This egg-shaped hole was carved by the ocean probably 10,000 years ago and now its base is just at the high tide line. From this point, visitors can return to the parking area.
The Hole-in-the-Wall Park offers 100 hectares of natural terrain unique to this coastal area of the Bay of Fundy — most of it surrounded by the Bay. Visitors can explore on foot or by vehicle or mountain bike. You can spend as little as 30 minutes riding/biking on your own to the viewing decks, hiking down to the Hole-in-the-Wall. Add more than an hour of hiking if the Red Trail beckons!
These 100 hectares (300 acres) of Grand Manan have been in the owner's family for 200 years. The owner/manager lives on site. It is with pride that the campground and viewing areas are developed with the focus of sharing the beauty of the location. As the aerial view below indicates, you are only a couple of kilometers from restaurants, attractions, a great bakery, shopping, etc.
