Date of Stay:

Park is 2 miles from I-69, and convenient for "Winter Texans" heading home to Michigan and Ontario in the spring, as the transient sites are available with full hook ups. Staff is friendly, and the sites are nice and long. Price paid is the off season rate.

Date of Stay:

Well maintained park, suitable for staying while visiting the Georgetown area. Friendly staff.

Date of Stay:

Park is OK for overnight stay, but would not be suitable for expended stays unless you only want a base camp. Most of the "campers" appear to be workers, with several FEMA trailers being used. Pads are concrete and fairly level, so easy to set up. Interstate is close by, as is a railroad, so background noise is high.

Date of Stay:

Was welcomed by the friendly owner. Campground is very well maintained, with good level sites and easy access. Used trailer facilities so cannot comment on showers and washrooms. However based on condition of park, I expect that they are very good. Easy access from interstate, but not too noisy considering that interstate is visible from park.

Date of Stay:

This is an average park. Some treed sites, some in the open. Site landscaping could be improved. WQe found the nightly fee excessive considering the lack of sewer hookups and general park appearance. Staff were friendly and helpful though.

Date of Stay:

One of the best KOA's we've seen. Very friendly and helpful owners, and very efficient staff. Park is clean and tidy, with good sized sites and enough trees for shade if required. Cable TV was good and Wi-Fi available at sites although it was slow sometimes. The owners are RV'ers themselves and this shows in how they run the park.

Date of Stay:

This is a large park with plenty of room for big rigs. Sites are plan gravel for the most part. Park is close to Rocky Harbor for shopping, and this town is fairly well centered in the National Park. I would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Rated this park as a 8 because it was very convenient to the National Historic Site at L'Anse aux Meadows. Negatives are that we couldn't drink the water while we were there, and they ran out of 30 amp sites. Recommend the "Northern Delight" restaurant just down the road for excellent food at reasonable price.

Date of Stay:

This park is close to the beach and we were able to see the Capelin roll in. It is convenient for sightseeing around Twillingate (great icebergs!) The owners were very friendly and especially helpful when our RV needed an emergency repair. They made several phone calls on our behalf and followed up to ensure that we got what we needed.

Date of Stay:

I rated this park high because although the facilities are fairly basic, the owners make you feel so welcome. They were very friendly and forthcoming with all kinds of information. We had a lot of fun in our conversations with them. The park is also close to Bonavista, and to Trinity.

Date of Stay:

I rated this park as only average because of the large number of seasonal residents who are not terribly friendly, the high fee that we paid for a water and electric site, the not very welcoming staff, and the fact that the dump station had no flushing hose. I shall not return there.

Date of Stay:

Probably the best park on the island when you consider the nice lots, full service and friendliness of the owners. We had to stay longer here due to ferry problems, and the owners were very accommodating.

Date of Stay:

No one at office when checking in, he arrived much later. Office area is an eyesore - with auto parts and parts of wrecked vehicles lying around. Found only 3 30 A sites for our group of four. Rest of sites are 15 amp. Many sites had no power due to blown or missing fuses at site. The electrical service is archaic - many sites have home made boxes and still use the screw in type fuses - not breakers. One of the main service poles will likely fall over in next storm, and cable is tangled within a couple of trees. Sites are all grass and reasonably level. Water is cloudy and slightly brown. Washrooms and shower are not well maintained. Stayed the night, because we were there, and it was an experience! However, I do not recommend the place to anyone.

Date of Stay:

Low rating due to campgrounds proximity to interstate It is very close. Consequently, a peaceful sleep is very difficult to obtain. Sites are also narrow, rough and uneven, and not well cared for. Office staff, however, was very welcoming.

Date of Stay:

Park staff are very welcoming, but $40 for a poor water and electric site is extremely poor value. Site was narrow gravel, with muddy/grassy ares beyond. WiFi internet was good. The park has some animals to amuse children, but one of the donkeys occasionally makes an awful racket which woke my wife twice in the night. Free light breakfast was included also.
