Come see us on Campobello!

After more than one year operating behind a close border, we are cautiously optimistic that our border might be reopened during late summer or fall. Meanwhile, we accept fully vaccinated persons or people from the same family group living in the same household.

As has been our practice, our van can pick you up at any place on Campobello. As soon as the border is open again we can also offer pickups in Lubec, Maine. We do custom private tours and groups are welcome.

Specialty tours, also in combination with Tours to f.ex. St.Andrews can be tailored to your personal wishes. Should you arrive from the U.S. by marine vessel, please call 1-888-CANPASS (1-888-226 7277) for your border check-in. International Boat Arrivals can be processed at Welshpool Landing (

Coming from the U.S. you will need your passport and please remember that Campobello is on Atlantic Time.

(Eastern Time+1hr.)

For reservations please call or email a day prior to your intended visit. Any later attempt to make a reservation may go unsuccessful as we might be on a tour just when you call.

Thanks for visiting and be welcome to the island.

Travel advisory: COVID-19 border measures for Campobello Islan

News release

May 01, 2021 Campobello Island, New Bruswick

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is committed to limiting the spread of COVID-19 in Canada, while facilitating trade and essential travel. Given this, the CBSA is reminding New Brunswickers that travelling to and from Campobello Island through the United States (U.S.) is international travel and constitutes exiting Canada. To gain re-entry into Canada, travellers must report to a CBSA port of entry.

The temporary restriction on all discretionary travel at the Canada-U.S. borderis being extended on a monthly basis. All travel of an optional or discretionary nature, such as tourism and recreation, is covered by these measures.

While Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and Registered Indians under the Indian Act continue to enter Canada by right, they remain subject to COVID-19 entry screening measures and must comply with the mandatory 14-day requirement to quarantine or isolate if not exempt.

Exemptions to quarantine and isolation requirements are currently in place to ensure that critical infrastructure, essential services and economic supply chains continue between Canada and the U.S. Exemptions are also in place for residents of Campobello Island who are asymptomatic and must cross the border on a day-to-day basis for work, or to obtain essential goods and services. These exemptions do not apply to residents of mainland New Brunswick who wish to visit Campobello Island.

Travellers are required to wear a non-medical mask or face covering upon entry to Canada and while in transit to isolation or quarantine, unless the mask or face covering needs to be removed for security or safety reasons. Travellers presenting symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will be referred to a Public Health Agency of Canada staff member for further assessment.

March Sun

We are approaching the best time of the year – SPRING! Even though we might get another snow shower or two, all snow is gone for now. Days are bright and sunny and once in a while we see a US car license from somewhere farther south.
The sun is tempting us to walk out into nature and we do a walk through the forest. Lake Glensevern is free of ice, possibly due to a little salt in the water after the last storm.

The trail is mostly dry, Molly enjoys to sniff up familiar and unfamiliar smells along the trail. The birch trees are shedding their outer layer of bark and like fur on a deer it hangs from the trees. I have a plastic bag and gather birch bark. I use it to start my morning fires in the stove.
Birch bark burns like gas and produces a lot of heat. It never fails.
We come to an intersection. From here to the left it isn’t far to Gibraltar Rock. No monkeys there so we are heading straight on. We are on the original carriage trail which led the Roosevelts and other summer residents to the lake and via a long-gone bridge across the lake to the ocean beach.

The trail has deep ruts. Are they from the carriages? I am not sure, but this is historic ground on Campobello.
My plastic bag is filling quickly. There is much more bark than we can get with us today. What a wonderful natural forest.

Take a little trip to the beach and have a look at how the last storm surge changed the sand deposits.

On our way home we drop by the grocer and Bea gets some chocolate cookies for coffee.

Love those sunny pre-spring days!
