One Tank Trip for New Brunswick Camping

Total Mileage/average drive time:
142 km - 2 hours, 10 minutes

Sharing a border with Maine, New Brunswick is widely known as an extraordinary destination for its lively cities, beautiful eclectic culture and diverse recreation opportunities and is home to one of the most spectacular marine wonders in the world, the Bay of Fundy. Add in a dash of Acadian joie de vivre, stir gently and you've got yourself a RV destination worth gassing up the rig for!

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…

47.2 km - 41 minutes
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.

47.3 km - 50 minutes
The final destination of our New Brunswick RV camping trip is another 10 miles east on the PR-2 that 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. There's a saying that's very fitting for our trip today—once a New Brunswicker, always a New Brunswicker. Whether it's your first visit or your hundred and first, New Brunswick and its people always make you feel like you're coming home.
