Located on the Restigouche River’s south bank, opposite Pointe-à-la-Croix, Quebec, Campbellton was officially incorporated in 1889 and became a city in 1958. It is home to Restigouche Sam.

The regional economy relies heavily on forestry and tourism, with a pulp mill in nearby Atholville serving as the area’s largest employer. As a component of the tourism sector, affluent sport fishermen are drawn to the picturesque Restigouche Valley every summer in pursuit of Atlantic Salmon.
