Your Safety

Driving
The roads in the natural area are narrow with numerous turnouts to permit passing. Please obey posted speed limits.

Hiking
Be careful with small children. Sections of the Raccoon Beach-Liberty Point and Liberty Point-Lower Duck Pond Trails travel along high cliffs and ledges. Algae or moss-covered and wet logs and rocks can be slippery. Wear sturdy footwear.

Animals
Do not approach any wild animal. Although rabies is present in New Brunswick, there have been no reported cases on Campobello Island.

Insects
Biting insects include mosquitoes, blackflies, and deerflies. Biting insects are fewer in number after mid-June. Although there may be small populations of some tick species, ticks have not been a problem in the park.
