Considered the “Salmon Fishing Capital of the Miramichi”, fly-fishermen (or “sports” as we call them) have been flocking to the Blackville area to fish the Southwest Miramichi River and its tributaries —the Renous, Cains, Dungarvon, and Bartholomew rivers —for decades. Both rustic and modern hunting and fishing lodges line their shores, offering everything from exciting day adventures on the water to quiet evenings under the stars. Celebrities often visit our mighty river, their presence kept secret by tight-lipped guides who respect their privacy. But everyone knows the story of when Marilyn Monroe came to visit. The reports of her having dangled her legs in the Miramichi River at Doctor’s Island in Blackville are legendary.

The focal point of many community events is the Municipal Park, located in the centre of the village and nestled between the Miramichi River and the Bartholomew River. With walking trails, a playground, picnic area, boat launch and an observation deck the park was the site of a bustling lumber mill in the early 1900’s where logs were run down the river from miles away to be processed.
