Lower St. John River Valley Region


The Lower St. John River Valley passes by two of the largest cities in the province (Fredericton and Saint John) on its way to the Bay of Fundy. Both have several options for paddling adventures. The section above Fredericton is interrupted by the Mactaquac Dam. The dam makes the river into a large, 80 kilometre long lake from the town of Woodstock to Mactaquac. The Town of Nackawic is in the middle and has a great waterfront and marina as a starting point. Make sure you check out the largest axe in the world while you are there.

This region is also known for its many lakes stretching from the large Spednic Lake system in the southwest to Grand Lake in the east. The river becomes tidal in Belleisle Bay and where the Kennebecasis River flows into the bay near the Town of Hampton.
