This is a precious place that I am so glad someone in the past had the foresight to protect. I am very disappointed to hear that the Provincial government let go of all the employees and the responsibility of stewardship for this rare place in 2013. I am happy to report that the takeover by the Boys and Girls Club of Grand Manan did not seem to leave the beautiful park uncared for.
We saw no trash. The pit toilet was clean and scrubbed and did not smell. The grass was cut. It didn't matter to the flocks of birds hanging in the sanctuary and along the beach whether the politicians had abandoned their migratory haven. We visited as the tide was going out and the waves lapped the shore. A wonderful sound! An incredible place! I hope the government will return to their senses and shepherd this park into forever. Thanks to the citizens who saved it this year.
Note: Some of the many hiking trails are wheelchair accessible.

My second trip to Grand Manan and I spent several days each time at the park. I loved walking along the trail to Red Point & back through the forest with views of the bay. Also walking north along the beach at low tide and enjoying a warm day in the sun with a book in my beach chair.

A nice clean campground. There are hookups for trailers or more remote sites for tenters. The beach is great for walking. Long pond is a cool spot to have a picnic.

Anchorage Provincial Park was very empty during our stay in August & we would like to see more people using it on a regular basis as it is truly a hidden gem. The bathrooms were clean, the grounds well maintained & the scenery spectacular. The camping sites for trailers are very open with many spots that are secluded around the edges of the park. Fire pits are located at each site & are built with cooking over an open fire in mind. The kitchen shelters are extremely useful as they provide a spot to wash dishes as well as cook & eat a meal during inclement weather. Beaches are close by & beautiful Our teenage boys were happy to stay on the island & the road into Anchorage provided the perfect spot for them to longboard. Not once did we hear "we are bored". That says it all!!
