Bathurst lakes in the Mount Carleton park are pristine and what I would call the hidden jem in NB. When arriving at the entry point to the Bathurst lake area, you will find a clean open area which will give you a view not only of the first lake you will encounter but a nice view of the highest point in Atlantic Canada Mt Carleton. I marked river but as we know these are lakes. You will see lots of moose/ wildlife in this area. Please respect the eco system and take out your trash.
Location: The park is located in the north of New Brunswick in the Appalachian Range Region. From Cambellton Road 17 west to just north of Saint-Quentin, where you can pick up the 180 heading east. Watch for the cut off to Road 385. From Edmunston follow the 2 south to the 218 passed Grand Falls, then connect to the 108, then the 385 heading northeast. From Bathurst follow the 180 west. From Fredericton follow the 2 north to the 218 and follow the directions above for Edmunston. The park is about 2-3 hours from Bathurst, Cambellton or Edmundston.Nearest Towns: Plaster Rock 84km, St-Quentin 43km, Nictau 32km

UpsideBeautiful location, and terrific wilderness DownsideSo far away! I also fear they will close it due to low attendance. CommentSaw a bear, moose, and great mountain views from the trails. Have not yet paddled its waters. (But will!) -East coast editor; shannon Burt
