Welcome to Campobello Island
Like many moneyed families, the Roosevelts bought property in this peaceful coastal area at the end of the 1800s. The southern half of Campobello is almost all park, and a golf course occupies still more.
Come to the island prepared. The island's biggest community, Wilson's Beach, 10km north of Roosevelt Park, has just a grocery store and post office. An ATM is at Welshpool. The island has no gas station – the 1000 residents of the 16km-long Campobello must cross the bridge to Lubec, ME, to fill their tanks. They generally use the same bridge to go elsewhere in New Brunswick.
