Sleep in a Treehouse

Whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, you’ll love sleeping among the treetops at Miramichi Treehouse Camping Adventures.

Ever wanted to feel like you were flying? Make your way across the martimes’ longest zip-line at French Fort Cove.  

A Putt & A Cone

With whimsical obstacles like a miniature centennial bridge, Maurie’s Mini-Putt is a perfect way to spend an afternoon. Finish off your round with an ice-cream!

Try Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Few things compare to a day on the river. Storeytown Cottages offer tube, kayak and canoe adventures. For even more of a thrill, try stand up paddle boarding! (Don’t worry, they’ll show you the ropes!) 

Come Play On Our River

Give your kids the gift of a true appreciation for the great outdoors with the Come Play On Our River Summer Camp. This day camp will teach them how to tie flies, cast a rod, canoe and more!

Reach for the Stars

The dark-sky preserve at Kouchibouguac Nature Park makes for the perfect evening of star-gazing. To experience the many exciting activities in the park, we recommend a stay in their o’TENT’iks. 

Dare the Dark 

Not for the faint of heart – weave your way through the darkened trails of French Fort Cove as a guide weaves the tale of The Headless Nun. 

Travel Back In Time 

From a grieving widow to a frantic marquis, you never know who you will run into on a Tour Through Time at Beaubears Island. For even more family friendly fun, reserve a picnic. 

Down on the Farm

The kids will love visiting the animals of MacDonald farm while the adults can revel in learning more about the Scottish history of the site.

Tilley, is always on the ball when it comes to breakfast time 😂
