Kouchibouguac National Park

Golden sand dunes, estuaries brimming with life, warm ocean beaches, Mi’gmaq and Acadian culture, the starry spectacle of a Dark Sky Preserve and snowbound winter activities weave together the compelling tapestry of Kouchibouguac National Park.

The park extends over 238-square-kilometres of Maritime Plain Natural Region along New Brunswick’s scenic Acadian Coast. This mosaic of salt marshes, peat bogs, freshwater systems, Acadian woodland and sandy beaches has long captivated guests, one generation to the next.


Come discover this natural environment for yourself – you’ll see why it was so critical to protect it and why this territory warranted being designated a national park.
