I attended the Tea with Eleanor today in a beautiful cottage at the Park. It came highly recommended, and rightly so. Taunya Russell and Debbie Mitchell really bring Eleanor alive, by painting a picture of her life, from her early years through to her becoming...More

This is a must-see for history buffs, hikers, and bike riders. The venues are spectacular, including the most charming light house (and caretaker Lew), and Sunsweep hiking trail. And nothing is more wonderful than learning more about Eleanor Roosevelt. Do not miss the lovely tea....More

We visited Campobello while staying at Acadia in June. It ended up being about a 90 min. drive (78 miles), but the drive was pleasant and scenic. It's mainly back roads. We were a little confused after crossing the bridge as to which way to...More

This park is in Canada but the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt family history is a key focal point of the park. We took the tour of the family house, a 34 room cottage! Then we took the Fun Tour which was really fun! We then...More

We enjoyed our tour through the Roosevelt cottage on Campobello island. It isn't a very long tour but it is interesting. They also have a short film in the visitors center. The tour is free which is nice. The only downside is you have to...More

This was our first stop on Campobello. We didn't visit the FDR home, but did spend some time on the surrounding trails and the grounds of the park. Beautiful views of the ocean, nice, quiet clean park, and all the staff we met on the...More

It's a very well kept park, quiet and peaceful and the Roosevelt house is very well maintained. Staff is very friendly and the tours are efficient and well done.

We visited the park in early October 2017 and the crowds were small. We toured the Roosevelt “cottage “ and it almost feels as if Eleanor only recently left, though it’s been a longtime. This is an amazing part of our American history and worth...More

The best advice is to bring a jacket or a sweater no matter the time of year. Our waters are cold and when the wind shifts the temp can really drop.

Take tea with Eleanor and tour the houses. Total 4 hours. You can spend more time walking if you wish. If you take tea, do the paid tour not the free one. Much better.
