Mactaquac Provincial Park

Mactaquac Provincial Park Review

Surrounding the giant pond created by the Mactaquac Hydroelectric Dam on the St. John River is Mactaquac Provincial Park. Its facilities include an 18-hole championship golf course, two beaches, two marinas (one for powerboats and one for sailboats), supervised crafts activities, myriad nature and hiking trails, and a restaurant. There are also guided walks on summer Wednesdays through a nature reserve to beaver ponds. Reservations are advised for the 300 campsites in summer, but winter is fun, too; there are lots of trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, and sleigh rides are available by appointment. The toboggan hills and skating/ice hockey ponds are even lighted in the evening. There's a TreeGO attraction (506/363–4440; www.treegomactaquac.ca) in the adjacent Centennial Park.
