2018 ROAD TRIP TO MAINE & CANADA
Days 8 – 13 : Wednesday, 7/18 – Monday, 7/23
Headquarters Campground at Fundy National Park
We booked a full hookup campsite at the Headquarters Campground for a week in the summer.
At the Headquarters Campground at Fundy National Park, there were no individual fire pits. They had community fire pits spread throughout the campground.
Kai absolutely loved the playground. It was very unique! Downside: the playground and pool were pretty far. We definitely needed to drive or ride our bikes.
Canadian National Parks are so amazing with their rules about allowing dogs on their hiking trails. That was one of main reasons we were looking forward to bringing Stanley, our Cairn terrier.
Stanley had such an amazing time on our hikes and getting some fresh air!
We enjoyed riding our bikes to the playground, but the saltwater pool was too far and far too hilly for us to ride. Since Kai cannot ride a bike of his own just yet, we love our bike trailer. Michael pulls him with it, and it’s perfect!
One major shocker at the campground: they advertise there’s a dark sky preserve at the park, which I totally believe. However, at our campground, they had these large and bright street lights. It was safe because we could see clearly at night, but it was not helpful to see the stars at night.
The water here had a rusty taste to it. Of course, I didn’t use it for drinking. I just got a bad taste when I used it to brush my teeth and when I was bathing. The rust (to me) was very overwhelming. Michael said he didn’t notice it.
it was $3 a load here! Double the price of laundry compared to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Woodstock, Canada. And, the machines here were very old and not has efficient. I also noticed the washer was all rusty inside. My suspicions = rust in the water = proving my theory.
It caught my off guard, in a good way.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long camping trip to Fundy National Park. Prior to our trip, I was very nervous we weren’t going to have enough activities to keep our two-year old occupied. Soon after we arrived, we realized FUNdy is such a family-oriented Canadian national park.
