I have SO much to say about this park! To say we enjoyed our stay here would be an understatement! Our August holidays took us to Northern New Brunswick for a week. We decided on Sugarloaf because it’s close proximity to the ocean. Once there we found so many other things to do in the area and at the park.
Sugarloaf Provincial Park is located near Campbellton in North Eastern New Brunswick. It’s a decent size campground in the Appalachian Region. There are beautiful hiking trails at the park including one that climbs 1,000 feet to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain! Yes, we climbed it! Although a lot of effort, it was really worth it! Here are some photos:
After hiking back down again, we finished the hiking trail around the base of the mountain. It was so spectacular!
One of the many day trips we took was the Appalachian Route to Grand Falls/Grand Sault on the north western side of the province. At times the Appalachian Route was rough and I’m glad we found out when NOT hauling our fifth wheel! Here are some photos of that day trip!
There were so many other things we did while at Sugarloaf and I’ve already posted some on my blog. We went on a mackerel fishing tour on the ocean at Petit Rocher, drove part of the Acadian Coastal Route, golfed at Restigouche Golf and plenty more!
My sweet hubby took me out for dinner for my 49th birthday which I might add was spent doing what we love best – camping!!! One of the really cool things at Sugarloaf is a fully licensed restaurant – TBar – located below the ski hills at the park. I ordered the “seafood platter” and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food!
Also at the Sugarloaf is a bike park and I don’t mean some random bike trails. You and your bike can ride the ski lift up in the summer and mountain bike the trails back down. Most trails are rated experienced or expert, but some are beginner trails. We did not bike any trails as we forgot our helmets at home and well, I’m not sure how our CCM’s would fair on these technical courses. Another time!
As for wildlife at Sugarloaf, it’s common to see moose and bear, although we did not. We did however have a resident red fox that visited our campsite almost every night we were sitting outside. Obviously someone had been feeding it as it seemed pretty tame!
Sugarloaf was a beautiful park! The rates were so reasonable and we had three way hookups! It was nice to be in such a beautiful, wild park and still have full service! The quality of our campsite I’d rate at high as it was very well treed and private. The park itself was very clean and very well patrolled. Park staff were always friendly and helpful. The washrooms and laundry facilities were clean too! I’d give this park a very high score for a review and would love to return someday! Here are some more park photos:
Our stay at Sugarloaf was amazing, but then, our entire trip to New Brunswick was pretty spectacular! We did so much and seen so much! We really didn’t spend much time at the park, but when we did, we enjoyed every minute. I’d highly recommend this campground to anyone looking for a park in Northern New Brunswick! I have to post one more photo here – it’s a view of Sugarloaf Mountain & the provincial park approaching from the highway!
