Hurricane Fiona

At this time, trails, South Kouchibouguac Campground and day-use areas in the park are scheduled to be open and operational this weekend.

However, due to anticipated severe weather from Hurricane #Fiona, Backcountry campgrounds (Sipu, Petit-Large and Pointe à Maxime) will be closed this weekend. Safety is a shared responsibility. Parks Canada reminds visitors that travelling into the backcountry is not recommended during severe weather conditions and that visitors are responsible for their own safety.

Interpretation programs have been cancelled for Friday and Saturday. Sunday programs are still planned (weather permitting).

Visitors should be prepared for strong winds and rain, potential power outages and facilities closures, fallen trees, debris and storm surges.

We recommend that visitors have a sufficient potable water supply for the duration of their stay at the park in the event of an extended power outage. We ask that campers maintain a clean campsite and store any items that could be blown away in strong winds.

Please call us at 506-876-2443 before making your way to the park as you may be required to modify your travel plans as conditions change. We will continue to monitor the storm’s progress and provide updates as required.
