Campbellton is the major town on the border of New Brunswick after crossing the bridge over from Quebec. After crossing the border, you will find an information centre that is well equipped with information not only on Campbellton but the entire of the New Brunswick province. The staff there are very friendly and helpful and will take care of any questions that you may have.
Just outside of the information centre is a really cool fountain and a massive metal sculpture of a fish known to the locals as Sam -- he is the world’s largest salmon sculpture and he is pretty impressive to visit. Riverside Park with all of the old canons and old military artillery is also an interesting visit. The main tourist attraction of the town is the Sugarloaf Provincial Park, just on the outskirts of the town where you can engage in activities such as camping, hiking, and kayaking. Other than that, the town is not overly aesthetically pleasing. Most of the buildings in the town centre are rundown concrete. A walk along the waterfront is one of the more attractive things to do around the town.
Hostels in Campbellton are in the downtown area and close to the city mall. The town does have all of the major amenities that you may need including most of the major Canadian banks, supermarkets, and shopping centers for stocking up on things that you may need before heading onward.
