Town of Nackawic

Recognized as Forestry Capital of Canada in 1991, Nackawic is situated on a panoramic bend on the Mactaquac head-pond of the St. John River. This modern-day town developed quickly as a result of two major river-valley changes; the mid-sixties construction of the Mactaquac hydroelectric dam and the 1970 opening of St. Anne Nackawic Pulp Mill. Relax on the waterfront and enjoy the river breeze before heading to a local eatery for a meal.
