Nackawic Waterfront Concessions

One of Canada’s East Coast Riverfront Travel Destinations

Destination Nackawic is emerging as a riverfront travel destination on the east coast of Canada. We’re becoming known as “New Brunswick’s Cottage Country and a popular spot for all kinds of boaters and fishing enthusiasts.

Thanks to partnerships, investments, and entrepreneurship, the Town of Nackawic has developed a 54-acre recreational and tourism area on the waterfront, designed specifically for boaters to take advantage of. The beautifully-designed waterside experience is the focal point in Destination Nackawic—and it’s full of potential! 


Nackawic’s waterfront development

Destination Nackawic’s newly forming marina located in the Town of Nackawic is absolutely breathtaking. There are so many experiences to be enjoyed on Mactaquac Lake. Recreational fishing is a multibillion-dollar industry, and the Nackawic waterfront is the perfect spot for boat rental businesses, charter boat tours, sport fishing guides and more.

Once Mactaquac Lake freezes over, the Nackawic Waterfront becomes a near never-ending, sparkling surface for snowmobilers, as well as people exploring the area on skates and snowshoes. Why not open a business along the popular trails?


Developing waterfront highlights in Destination Nackawic

Destination Nackawic Economic Development Corporation is looking for partners like you for our ever-developing waterfront!

The Destination Nackawic region offers an expanding tourism economy while preserving the natural attributes of the scenic Nackawic waterfront. It’s already home to the World’s Largest Axe, a popular roadside attraction.

Nackawic’s upgraded waterfront boasts some of the province’s most spectacular sunsets. In the warmer months, the setting sun mirrors off the open water, and in Canada’s colder months, it bounces off the glittering snow and ice.

The new addition of the Big Axe Marina to the Nacakawic waterfront features a boat launch, docking space for boaters, a boat washing station, fueling station, kayak and water bike rental options, and Big Axe souvenirs. There is potential to develop the waterfront experience in our region even more!

With investors like you, Nackawic’s expanding waterfront could include:

  • Full-service marina, including a fuelling station
  • Beach for swimming (+ a separate dog-friendly beach)
  • Houseboat beach, the perfect spot to dock during your houseboat or a rental from Lakeway Houseboat Vacations
  • Family-friendly features like a splash pad and playground
  • Newly constructed waterfront concession retail space for food, fishing tackle, small-craft rental, etc.
  • Conveniently located commercial core
  • Potential for developing overnight accommodation
  • Hillside garden, a beautiful landscaping initiative
  • Enhanced park programming and activities
  • And more!

We have an incredible vision for the Nackawic Waterfront, and with your help, we can achieve it.
