Grand Maran Land Up For Sale, Potential Nat. Park (2/11/2019)

Story by Woodall's Campground Management

Grand Manan Cliffs

The cliffs of North Head, Grand Manan, in New Brunswick, overlooking the Bay of Fundy are up for sale after being in the same family for more than 200 years.

After 213 years, the family that has owned an iconic chunk of Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick, is preparing to bid it farewell, according to CBC News. 

The Hole-In-The-Wall Campground, known for its cliff-side campsites boasting spectacular and unobstructed views of the Bay of Fundy, is up for sale.

At the same time another group is pushing for that strip of coast of North Head to become a satellite portion of Fundy National Park.

"It's excellent," said Kathleen Small, the campground owner who ran the business alongside her late husband for decades.

"We weren't aware until it had been in operation for a couple of weeks," said Karen Wishart, Small's daughter who is helping to sell the land. "But this was totally new to us." 

Named for the doughnut-shaped rock formation rising just above the ocean's surface, the land has been in the Small family since at least 1806.

The 50 tent sites on the ocean's edge have hosted hikers and campers for decades.

It offers views of breaching whales, seabirds, seals and fishing boats, all from campsites that are just a few feet from the precipice of the cliffs, with waves crashing far below.
