We camp on a 3 1/2 acre (mostly cleared) shore lot overlooking the beautiful Miramichi River just east of the city limits of the City of Miramichi, New Brunswick (Postal Code E1V7C9) at Lower Newcastle. The drive into the lot is paved, 1000 ft off Route 11 with one sharp turn but very negotiable. We are between the City of Miramichi and Neguac, the entrance to the Acadian Peninsula on Route 11 North.
The City of Miramichi is called the City of Festivals including the Irish festival, Miramichi Revival, the Scottish Festival, Rock and Roll (Canada Day) Festival, Tall Ships and many more. Checkout Miramichi.org
We are semi retired but occasionally do some crack filling and painting when we are not travelling. We love canoeing, biking and quading. But best of all we love visiting our grandchildren all 10 of them stretching from the west to central Canada as none of them live here in the Atlantic region
Although we are in Lower NewCastle, we are just outside the City of Miramichi to the east on route 11 N and the beginning of the beautiful Acadian Peninsula. We are about an hour and a half from Moncton and two hours from Fredericton. The city of Miramichi is called the city of festivals so there is always something going on as we are always celebrating life
We have a 2005 Newmar Kountry Star 3910 four slides and an awning. We tow a 2012 Chevy Equinox
Nice park-like setting. Convenient, easy-to-find, well off the highway; beautiful riverside view with stairs down to the waters edge. Thanks again, didn't meet our hosts but exchanged some friendly, helpful messages.
This site has everything including a fire pit, a deck with table and chairs and a barbecue. The hosts were so kind and accommodating.
We never met. However, we did communicate and a very restful sleep Evan with the rain
Thank you both so much for hosting us. I really can’t add anything to the numerous positive reviews that have been left previously. To wake up to the beautiful view of the river was a real treat and we appreciate you taking the time to come out and welcome us. We highly recommend this location to any other boondockers.
We ended up having trouble making it there on time and our hosts were nothing but gracious. They allowed us to come 2 days late and still stay it was a beautiful spot well maintained and I am super jealous as that is one of the nicest Boondock places I've ever seen. Thank you again to our hosts for being very patient with us and understanding
Though our stay was short, we found the setting to be beautiful and the hosts very welcoming and helpful.
Thank you S&L very much.
We enjoyed relaxing on the deck overlooking the river. Hosts were very accommodating. Wish we would’ve had more time to visit but the rain and our early departure prevented it. The road noise died down later in the evening and we had a good nights sleep. Hope they can visit us someday in Florida
What a beautiful location, I could have a shower and do some laundry as well! Very kind and generous hosts!
We absolutely loved our visit. Meeting up with other guests, having a visit with "mom" and cleaning boxes of blueberries together while we visited just seemed so "down east" and added to the fun. Can't say enough about this amazing place and these generous hosts. Really hope they'll visit us in Ontario sometime soon.
We very much enjoyed our visit here, a very warm welcome, lovely setting, it seemed that we soon slipped into a very friendly relationship.
And we met the organisers of B-W, who were also staying there.
The best of boondocking!
A great rural spot next to the river. Sharon and livain made sure we had everything we needed. A very relaxing stay.
Sharon-Livain have a wonderful spot and we were sad to leave. The view, the beach and the proximity to Miramichi makes this the perfect place to stay. 5 star all the way!
Sharon-Livain were excellent hosts. They made sure we were situated and visited us to chat several times, even though they were busy. Their site is a beautiful open field right on at the mouth of a river. There is plenty of space to set up and they graciously allowed us to use their spare deck It is quiet except for the gulls and an occasional crow and is certainly a wonderful place to decompress for a couple of days in a welcome environment.
This is the most beautiful Boondockers place we have ever stayed. The hosts were out of town, but invited us to stay there anyway. Besides the beautiful river view, there is lots of comfortable seating scattered around and two nice decks, one with a picnic table. We would definitely go back there.
This is a very beautiful place on the river. Our host made us feel at home. Nice and Quite. A short visit but very nice host. If we are in the area again we will stop in.
Thanks for hosting us.
Betty & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Sharon-Livain on the banks of the Miramichi River. This turned out to be one of our favourite Boondockers Welcome spots as we continue our travels to 10 provinces and 48 states. (Visited 6 provinces and 37 states so far, since Dec./17).
Great hosts, great location. They invited us around their campfire with their friends. Our dog Clare would have rather stayed with them. Thanks so much S & L. Come visit us in Florida
These folks are great hosts in a park like setting with lots of room.
Beautiful river front site made this a lovely peaceful retreat. Would definitely stay here again.
We have spent three days at their location and enjoyed every minutes. Hosts were friendly and we recommand other boondockers to stop by and visit them.
You will appreciate, as well, the view on the Miramichi river.
I had to leave early to visit with my 97yo mom. Hope to visit here again in the spring.
Magnificent, right I
On the water.
This beautiful property overlooks the river and everynight we had a nice fire. Despite having other boondockers there already, they still welcomed us. Thank you so much for such an enjoyable stay!
Thank you so much for your fantastic spot . We were the first to arrive and told to go wherever we want. We chose the large deck overlooking the Miramachi river. After we arrived 2 other trailers pulled in and we met at the large bonfire that was provided. I wished we had another night to spend. It was close to Miramachi for shopping and historical sites
Excellent location in the river and lots of green space. Directions were Very good to find the spot.
Met with a few other boondockers there. Had two nice evenings with host and guests at campfire.
Would stay again if back in the area.
Big Brook Miramichi is an exceptionally lovely spot. Very easy to get into with our 2 fifth wheels, and a 35' travel trailer. The hosts are wonderful, and it was great to sit and chat with them. I went swimming in the river, and we had a great little cook out on their deck. Only sorry that we could not stay one more night on our schedule and have a campfire in their huge fire pit. Hope to be able to travel back through here again! Thank you for being wonderful hosts!
We had a very good night and we met wonderful people. Thanks a lot for the warm welcome and the beautiful scenery.
Betty & I loved our stay with our hosts on the bank of the mighty Miramichi. They are both knowledgeable about the area, and most helpful in reconnecting with childhood friends. Their Miramichi warmth and hospitality was greatly appreciated on one of the most beautiful of sites.
Our children were enthralled with all the jellyfish. And our hosts provided wonderful recommendations to local fare
Fantastic spot and even better hosts! Felt like home!
Thank you Sharon and Livain!
thank you for your hosting us, we had a wonderful time with you and we hope to get together again sometime and have another lobster dinner together. Gabi and Joe
We had a great stay here for two nights. A prime rural location on the shore of a river. Our hosts were very friendly and generous with their hospitality. Would highly recommend.
We had a great 2 night stay camping less than 200 feet from the
Miramichi Bay. Such a beautiful spot, view was great, well maintained, lots of space, great fire pit. Had a wonderful time! Hosts were friendly.
We would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Great large manicured lot beside the Miramichi river in New Brunswick. We only met our hosts once but they were nice.
Directions to the property could have been a bit better as it has no civic address GPS coordinates are wrong. A distance from a town marker to the white posts would make finding the property easier.
All in all a great place and great time.
We camped with our truck and trailer with two other groups Sept. 18 & 19 2017
Thanks so much
We stayed 2 nights, Sept 18 & 19. Exceptional property right on the Miramichi Bay with lots of wide open space. Beautiful view from the cleared grassy yard. A couple of wooden decks provided great sitting places for our group. And a wonderful fire pit that we enjoyed immensely. Stairs leading down to the waters edge provided easy access. Sharon and Livain were gracious and informative. Thank you
Parked a hundred feet from the river in this beautiful location. Very quiet at night and we made a small fire in their ring.
Our first night in Canada and this will be hard to top.
Even though they are not here they welcomed us to stay...so glad we did!
they allowed us to stay on their property even thou they were traveling, their description of their spot was accurate it was a little peace of heaven. all the best to them on their travels.
Our hosts were on holiday, but let us stay on their property. What a lovely spot!! Easy to find, beautiful view over the river and quiet. Thank you for letting us use your property!
We sent them a Message to see if we could stay. They were on a trip, but allowed us to stay on their property close to the river. A big grassy open area with firepit, and not hard to find.
Thanks for that great place and stay, we had a wonderful quiet night.
