Visit the Site of the Internment Camp
The site of former Internment Camp B/70 is conveniently located roughly 15km (9.4 mi) West of the New Brunswick Internment Camp Museum. With some remnants of the internment camp being present, the site features a historical trail of about 1km (0.6 mi.) in length that will take you on a self-guided tour of the former internment camp.
Signage is present to guide you along the way -- marking the locations of the original buildings. There are still visible signs of the camp remains including the road that formed an oval inside the camp. During the operation of the camp, truck loads of wood ashes from the stoves were dumped on the road and compacted into a hard base where little could grow. The cement footing where the mess hall stood and two cement manholes where you can see the pipes that carried water throughout the camp are clearly marked. Large rocks forming a circle were part of the grandstand. The 7.62m/25ft. high water tower base still stands and is visible from Route 10
The walk will take about 15 minutes. You will need snowshoes or cross country skis in the winter. It is recommended to bring along insect repellent for May and June
The trail in site is open year round and free to visit.
