North, across the river from Campbellton, across the iron bridge is the MicMac Nation Point La Croix Indian Reserve and Gaspesie Quebec. In and around Campbellton is forest and beautiful scenery. The scenery is especially beautiful in the fall. When the leaves change colour.
Forestry is a main industry. As is fishing. The Bay Chaleur people are friendly. And the odd person does, in fact, speak english.Related to:
