Online Camping Reservations for Kouchibouguac National Park Coming Soon!

Reserve your site as of April 11, 2014!

KOUCHIBOUGUAC NATIONAL PARK (NEW BRUNSWICK), Monday, April 7, 2014 – There's an excited buzz these days at Kouchibouguac National Park with the upcoming launch of the online campground reservation system on April 11, 2014. This year is the first time the Côte-à-Fabien campground will be included in the reservation system. At the South Kouchibouguac campground, which has been on the system for a few years, campers can reserve specific sites based on their preferences.

The South Kouchibouguac campground is undergoing major upgrades with the addition, for the first time, of all three services (water, sewer and electricity) to over a quarter of its sites. The work will be completed by early summer 2014 and also includes the addition of electricity to some formerly unserviced sites.

The Kouchibouguac National Park camping experience provides today's visitors with the experience they want and expect.

Quick Facts

  • The South Kouchibouguac campground has 311 sites: 71 sites with 3 services (water, electricity and sewer), 98 sites with electricity, and 142 unserviced sites.
  • The Côte-à-Fabien campground offers 32 unserviced sites.
  • The ban on bringing firewood into the park (for campfires) remains in effect for 2014. Visitors can buy firewood on site.

KOUCHIBOUGUAC, NEW BRUNSWICK, October 7th, 2013 – For many nature lovers, the fresh air of the season and the burst of fall colours are good incentives to hit the trails for a hike or a run. This year, it will be possible to participate in both the Kouchibouguac Fabulous Fall Festival activities and the "Marathon Luc Gallant" during the Thanksgiving long weekend.

The Kouchibouguac Fabulous Fall Festival is offering up a fun challenge for visitors: go hiking or camping in the park and then tell us about it or share your pictures on Facebook. The weekend schedule also includes an evening at the outdoor theatre, a voyageur canoe outing, a friendly washer-toss competition, a pumpkin carving contest and a campsite decoration event.

On Sunday October 13th, Parks Canada and the "Marathon Luc Gallant" organizing committee are very proud to hold the 5th "Marathon Luc Gallant" in Kouchibouguac National Park.

"We're really excited to hold the Marathon for its 5th year in a row in Kouchibouguac National Park," says race organizer Lisa Johnson Thebeau. "One of the objectives of the Marathon is to encourage young people to become physically active and to adopt a healthy lifestyle."
