Sites are level, but if you are the last one in, it might be tight maneuvering. It's quiet and doesn't feel like a city but you are close to everything. There is overflow parking for $5 a night- no hook up for that. As mentioned, the entrance is sort of an alley- a very wide driveway behind the parking lot of Old Susana's café. The driveway is called Elks Trail and is easy to miss, but if you do, there is a large dirt parking lot right down the street. Can't beat this place for the price!

This is a nice town campground about 6 miles off the highway. Sites were level and gravel. Nothing fancy but an easy place to spend the night. AT&T worked well, Verizon just OK. There is a nice dump station and water. You pay at the kiosk. They have dry camping for $12 a night too.

This RV park has easy access from the road, plenty of pull-through sites and a variety of hook-up options. We chose the most expensive, full hook-up. Check-in was fast, didn't hear about any rules at all, and the owner was friendly. The sites are level and big rig friendly. Laundry was clean, and cheap at $1.75 to wash and $1 to dry! Verizon and AT&T worked fine. Would stay here again.

We happened to drive by a sign for this place and decided to check it out. We usually travel in a 5th wheel, but have a truck camper for this trip. The campground is easy to get to- just a mile or so off the highway. There are two large pull thru sites and about 10 back in sites for smaller rigs. It has the feel of a mom and pop place, nothing fancy for the RV spots, but we did have good electric, a level site, a picnic table and some grass between sites. Plenty of room for a big rig to maneuver. The real draw here is the absolutely beautiful hot springs pool (100 degrees) and spa (104 degrees). The water is natural mineral water, with no chemicals. You pay a few dollars extra to use the pools, but its so worth it. Overall very quiet and peaceful and I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Being a couple of miles from downtown, this RV park was nice and quiet. No planes, trains, or automobile noise. Easy in and out, with large, level spaces. As mentioned, you don't have to be a member to stay here. WI-FI was so-so. Both Verizon and AT&T had signal. Rate paid is Passport America. We'll stay here again next time we come through town.

The best part about this park is that its convenient to Santa Fe, but its full of tight turns, making access very difficult. When we were leaving, the MH next to us was pulled so far forward that we couldn't make the turn around him. We had to go through another site, which was luckily empty, but even then it took us about 30 minutes to work our way out. Laundry was convenient and clean. Electric was good, but water pressure was so low we had to turn on our pump. Wi-Fi was OK, and both Verizon and ATT had signal. We would look elsewhere next time, for sure.

This place exceeded our expectations. Easy in and out. Large gravel, level sites, no need to unhook if you don't want to. WiFi was excellent. ATT and Verizon phones both had signal. There is a nice hot tub in the same building as the laundry. The only bad thing was the occasional train noise. It woke me up once. We would definitely stay here again.

We stopped here for one night and I wouldn't hesitate to come back. Very nice people in the office, Wi-Fi was really good, our Verizon and AT&T phones both had signal. As mentioned, some sites are packed gravel and some are cement. Most are very level, very long, and have plenty of room. It was quiet, without too much intrusive road noise (some "white" noise from the highway, but no jake brakes). There is a second section to this park that is behind the main section- it would be even more quiet up there. Our rate is the PPA rate. One issue we did have is that once in a while a large nut would fall out of the tree and bang loudly on the trailer. Not nice at 2 am.

This is our second time staying here for a week. Next time we'll look elsewhere. The people are nice, but I get frustrated when I have guests for dinner and have to go to the front desk and pay a visitor fee for them so that my guests won't know there is a fee just to have dinner at our trailer. Wi-Fi- as mentioned, is essentially non-existent, and saying you know there's a problem and are fixing it, for months, means you sure aren't in a rush to fix it. On the plus side, the sites are pretty level, and the ones out back are pretty spacious. Verizon and AT&T both worked fine. Laundry is clean.

This park is very convenient to St. John's without making you navigate difficult city streets. The campground is looking a little tired, but it served our purpose. We were in one of the loops without the Wi-Fi, but were were able to drive up to that loop and log on. Only one OTA TV station, ATT cell phone had reception. I'm not sure about the crime situation. There were lots of signs warning to take your valuables or leave them in the RV, but it didn't feel any more prone to crime than any other city park we've stayed in. The sites were pretty level and roads were navigable. Electric was good. We would stay here again.

This park is convenient for touring Gros Morne area. Wi-fi was "being worked on" both times that we stayed here. It worked ok in some areas, not in others. ATT phone had reception. The laundry room was clean. Some of the sites, mostly the small ones, are more private. The big rig area is a large open gravel area, but it has easy back in sites and pull thrus that are all very level. No fire pits allowed in that area though. We would stay here again.

We were surprised when we found this campground, but were very happy with our stay here. The Wi-Fi was pretty good, our cell phones (Verizon and AT&T) both had signal. Interior roads are gravel, but plenty wide enough. Some sites were very level, but some were not. They are putting in some brand new sites that will be ready (serviced) next year. The laundry room was clean and even has an ironing board and iron. There are lots of seasonals here but they all seem to take good care of their sites. Only one OTA TV station, which is typical of Newfoundland. We would definitely stay here again.

This park is 30 minutes from the ferry. We stayed here coming and going. The people are very accommodating regarding weird ferry hours. Roads are easy to navigate and our site was so level that we didn't unhook the truck, because we had to leave at 5 am. AT&T phone had marginal reception- we needed our booster and Wi-Fi was just ok. They have lots of towers but we still got booted off regularly. Free firewood was a nice perk. Be advised that they don't take credit cards. We had to pay cash. We would definitely stay here again.

This is one of the worst campgrounds we've stayed in. Trash in our site (dirty diaper, cigarette butts, beer bottles and caps). We had a pull through site with no services, which is fine, we knew that beforehand. The park is NOT big rig friendly. We kept hitting fairly large branches on the narrow campground roads, which were full of potholes. Kids were everywhere, but I blame the parents for not keeping them off the roads. Neighbors played loud music, singing along, until 1 am. If you want to use the hot tub, its $20/ 30 minutes. Want to swim in the pool? $5 per person. You can boondock nearby for free, and that's what we'll do next time.

This campground has not been upgraded in a long time. I guess the best news is that AT&T cell phone had good signal. When we arrived we found out that if we wanted WI-FI at our site, we would have to pay $6 a day for it. That's not their fault, I should have checked into it more.  There is supposedly a free hot spot at the office, but I could never get on, and the people in the office just shrugged. We are 38 ft long, and the first site they directed us to was impossible for us to get into, even after trying for a while. There were too many immovable objects. The loop to get out of that area was such a tight turn that we hit branches on both sides of the rig, scratching the paint.  Worse, just at the tight turn there was a tall tree stump just off the side of the road, which snagged our landing gear.  No damage because we were going so slow. Once we made it back to the open area we asked them for another site.  We got into that one (33) ok, but had to trim some branches.  Once we set up, we realized that the electrical was so weak we only had 105 volts, so even without running the AC, we were never able to use the microwave or oven.  The owner came over but said there was nothing he could do about it. This place is probably fine for smaller rigs, but I can't recommend it for bigger units.  Another campground is just a few minutes up the road and it has decent WiFi in the visitor's center.  We would stay there next time.
