Places in Fundy Isles
Deer Island, the closest of the three main Fundy Isles, is a modest fishing settlement with a lived-in look. The 16km-by-5km island has been inhabited since 1770, and 1000 people live here year-round. It's well forested, and deer are still plentiful. Lobster is the main catch and there are half a dozen wharves around the island.
New River Provincial Park
Just off Hwy 1, about 35km west of Saint John on the way to St Stephen, this large park has one of the best beaches along the Fundy shore, a wide stretch of sand bordered on one side by the rugged coastline of Barnaby Head. During camping season the park charges a $7 fee per vehicle for day use, which includes parking at the beach and Barnaby Head trailhead.
