The picturesque harbour community and Rural Municipality of Murray River is located in the southeastern region of Prince Edward Island. This community is on Points East Coastal Drive. As you drive through this quaint town you will find accommodations, restaurants, bank, Post Office, craft stores, service station, Confederation trail, and much more like the Murray River Station.
There is lots of history in Murray River for you to learn about. Discover information about the boat building and saw mill that was a big part of this village that was located at MacLure’s Dam or just take a walk through the village and enjoy the scenery.
MacLure’s Dam is the largest freshwater pond on Prince Edward Island and probably one of the prettiest. The pond was actually a millpond whose rich history dates back to the early 1800s. Today the pond is verdant with the green of hearty pines serving as backdrops for the marsh grass and cattails that line the banks.
On your visit stop by the wharf and talk to the local fishermen where you will learn all about lobster fishing, the mussel industry and other fishing that is done in the area. If you want a real treat then be sure to attend the Annual Northumberland Fisheries Festival held in July. There are lots of things to do and see in Murray River so be sure to drop by our community and spend a bit of time with us.
