Roosevelt Campobello International Park

Roosevelt Campobello International Park

For many years, Franklin D. Roosevelt summered on Campobello Island. As an adult, he shared with his family the same active pursuits he enjoyed on the island as child. Although he visited less frequently after contracting polio, Campobello remained important to FDR. Today Roosevelt Campobello International Park serves as a memorial to FDR and a symbol of cooperation between the U.S. and Canada. You can spend several hours exploring Roosevelt Campobello International Park. Here you can, visit the Edmund S. Muskie Visitor Center, which contains exhibits and a video interpreting the Roosevelt story, tour FDR's 34-room summer home to see what it looked like when he and his family lived there, walk through beautiful flower gardens, and much more.

We hope you enjoy our work.
