One Tank Trip for New Brunswick Camping

Map of New BrunswickLocated on the far eastern shore of Canada, New Brunswick is an enchanting cluster of provinces that are widely known for their rugged coastline and charming maritime culture. Filled with diverse landscapes and cultures, visitors will be swept away by the idyllic fishing villages, the bustling metropolitan areas, and the amazing natural beauty.

Starting our one tank trip off in Woodstock (which has the distinction of being New Brunswick’s first town), you’ll find a community rich in character and proud of its history. There are several Victorian homes available for touring, and both the Meduxnekeag and St. John’s Rivers join near downtown Woodstock. Rent a paddleboat or kayak and take a cruise along the water’s edge, or enjoy the view from any of the waterside eateries that serve some of the finest French food in Canada.

Continuing on our New Brunswick RV camping trip, drive southeast on Provincial Route 2 for a little more than 20 miles, which will bring you into Hawkshaw. This area brings the quietness of a remote getaway, while remaining close to any conveniences you might require. It’s a great place to set up camp and just enjoy being in nature, and you’ll have no trouble finding somewhere to hook up the rig and set up housekeeping for as long as you like. Do we need to mention how spectacular the views are? This is New Brunswick, after all…

Our one tank trip brings us by the town of Mactaquac which is a quick 17-mile drive east on the PR-2, and is quite near the province’s capital city of Fredericton. Tour the town’s fascinating living history museum dedicated to depicting 19th century life, but then leap to the 20th century with a day of enough shopping and dining experiences to satisfy any taste.

The final destination of our New Brunswick RV camping trip is another 10 miles east on the PR-2 which takes you to Oromocto, a small and beautiful community with a population of around 9,000. This town features a wide range of outdoor activities, from hiking and mountain biking trails, to fishing and camping. It’s one of Canada’s undiscovered jewels, so treat yourself and pay it a visit before everyone gets in on the act!
