Sitting on the banks of the Saint John River, the World's Largest Axe reminds us of the importance of the forest industry to the town and the Province of New Brunswick. Whether it's the breathtaking scenery, the many recreational activities, or our friendly people, Nackawic offers something for everyone.

Nackawic is such a beautiful place, well worth taking the detour off the highway. The axe was a great photo op and we ate at a wonderful diner there as well, Whatchamacallit Diner, owned by a very nice local lady.
This was a fun so on a small town! There is ice cream across the street from the axe too!
This is a beautiful spot. There is a marina there now too. What a great place to pull in off the highway. The Big Axe Brewery just down the road is awesome too!
Nice little Stop! The Axe is located in a small park with a playground along the St John River. There are also places for a picnic here and portable toilets.
It's an Axe! Why bother stopping off? It was a beautiful. Set near the water, a park setting for a nice outdoor break & stretch. The Axe is kinda cool too & terrific photo op. After 4 hrs driving, on our way to PEI, we stopped here with a portable BBQ & a football. Beautiful grounds around & gazebos along the water front. It was quite windy when we were there but a nice stop off.
Pointless to go after sundown there is no lights whatsoever
