Racoon Beach

Campobello, New Brunswick

Racoon beach is located within the Roosevelt International Park at the southern tip of Campobello Island. Racoon Beach borders the marine body of water Dinner Cove, of the Bay of Fundy. Visitors will find parking, an outhouse, and a picnic area at Racoon Beach. The beach can be accessed by a steep and slippery metal staircase. Once on the beach, you will notice that all the rocks have been rounded, this is from the strong tidal forces coming from the bay. Looking out from the beach visitors will be able to see Grand Manan.
There are also several hiking and biking trails in the area that visitors can enjoy.

La plage Racoon se trouve dans le Parc International de Roosevelt, à l’extrémité sud de l’île Campobello. La plage Racoon borde la Baie de Fundy. Près de la plage, les visiteurs peuvent trouver un parking, des toilettes, et une aire de pique-nique. La plage peut être accédée par un escalier raide et glissant. Une fois sur la plage, on peut voir les galets qui ont été formés par la force des marées.
On peut également trouver plusieurs pistes de randonnées et de pistes cyclables aux alentours.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
