Cool Moose: - established in 1987 with the introduction of the "Maritime Mooseltoe earring", "Corsages" and "Drop in Pins" - all made of pellets from the south end of a north bound moose.
The "'n' Stuff" part came about in 1989 with the establishment of our Outfitters Store, Kayak instruction, Liveries, Sales and Zero Impact Camping. By 1996, Cool Moose 'n' Stuff branched off into 4 season Eco Adventure, with winter overnighters (1st People's Style) for Snowshoers, Telemarkers and Moshers.

About the Area: - The upper Saint John River valley is isolated in international waters at it's northernmost bend. It is a river 673Km / 418Mi long with a watershed as large as Switzerland! People of the Sparkling River, the "Wolastukayik" first inhabited this region 10,000 years ago and lived in hemlock bark lodges called "Wigwams". Much of the river has lost it's "Sparkle" except for the upper reaches where the history and conflicts of the past cannot be swept away by flood or politics. Come feel this area and mingle with the "Lost Acadians" - a people of good heart, family duty and sense of humour. The natives had a name for the Frenchmen of the time ... it meant "Little man who walks with moose" - imagine that!!
