Roosevelt Campobello International Park is a combination indoor and outdoor site that includes the Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) summer home and a 1,133 hectare (2,800 acre) natural area. Natural Area trails wind through and past varied habitats including spruce-fir and hardwood forests, sphagnum bogs, fields, and seashore.
Eagle Hill Bog (1.0 km, 0.6 miles, relatively easy): This is one of the most interesting outdoor experiences in the park. The wooden pathway offers an excellent “dry” opportunity to explore the bog and view the vegetation. Resting benches and interpretative panels make the walk more enjoyable while an observation deck, connected to the wooden pathway by a short section of trail, offers scenic panoramic views from Eagle Hill. From the parking lot to the deck and back is a total of 0.6 miles. A self-guided tour handout is available at the Visitors Centre for an even more unique experience.
Footwear for wet and slippery conditions is recommended, especially along trails that follow the shore for part of their course.
