Mount Carleton Provincial Park

Mount Carleton Provincial Park is the largest provincial park in the Province of New Brunswick, Canada, about 180 miles (290 km) north of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. It’s a designated dark sky preserve by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, and is committed to protecting and preserving the night sky by reducing light pollution and energy consumption throughout the area. The park also celebrates an annual Mount Carleton Star Party for both amateur and professional astronomers to observe the night sky and socialize over a series of stargazing events, typically held in July or August. Please note that while camping is allowed, the park closes at 8:00 PM and does not permit overnight stays otherwise. For more information, visit online or call 506-235-0793.
