We enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Family run park with Level back-in sites right on Bonne Bay, beautiful views. Good wi-fi is available, the 2 wash rooms are keep clean, and with hot water. The father and son team here are very nice and accommodating. This is a basic campground, with no frills, it is right on Rte 431, but the traffic really didn't bother us. There is a boil water warning in the area so bring drinking water with you. No sewer or dump station, come with empty tanks. But with that said, this would be our place to stay when in the area.

The previous review from 2014 is still accurate. This dry camping campground is on the south side of Gros Morne National Park. While we were here the water was shut off for 2 days, so I can't comment on the bathhouse. There are flush toilets and showers available. The gray water disposal at each site is very convenient. The sites are nicely spaced, and the area surrounding the sites was well keep. The two shelters are still available, the free sewer dump at the campground entrance, fresh water was not working, don't know if this was because of the water problem in the campground. The trails are very nice, the 3 tent sites available on the water are wonderful if you can get one. Very quiet and relaxing here. We would stay here again.

We pretty much agree with the previous recent reviews. There wasn't anyone in the office, so we just picked a 3 Way site with a view of the Ferry Dock. The water was good, no wi-fi or TV. The washer and dyer is free, donations accepted, full kitchen to use. This is a good place to unwind for a couple of days before or after the ferry. We would stay here again.

For the rate we paid, we feel this was a very good deal for a full service site, with a beautiful view. The park does have its flaws, no showers, 1 toilet down the hill, in the laundry room, 2 free washers, 2 pay dryers. The sites are very close together, some need more gravel to level them. We think that it would be difficult for any rig over 35 foot to maneuver into a site. Wifi was accessible, you must ask for the password, not a lot of room to walk the pup. But the area has a lot to offer, and the view is spectacular. We would stay here again.

I pretty much agree with previous posts. Pippy is a municipal Park, and is very convenient to St. John's. The campground has really 2 feels to it, the back in sites, loops 1-3 have a state park type of feel, and 30 amp. The FHU pull through sites, in Loop 4 are sites for big rigs, and includes wifi, this is just a wide open space. The laundry was clean, the bathhouse adequate. Plenty of room to walk the pup, wonderful walking paths in the area. We will stay here again when in the area.

Difficult review for me here. The campground itself is in a beautiful setting, quiet, on a lake, we could here the loons calling. The new owner has been here 2 years, and is slowly making improvements. This campground is used by caravans, so improvements to the electric and making the sites available to big rigs number one concern. There is no office, the sign says pick a site and the owner will come to your site, we were there 2 nights before we saw him. The bathhouse was clean, but smelled foul, we did not use it. The water was non-portable, don't know if boiling would make it drinkable. No wifi, didn't try for antenna TV. This is a wide open pasture area, with sites being somewhat level. Gravel entry road is very bumpy. This could be a very nice park, we will stay here again if in the area.

I am posting this review even though we didn't stay here. The reasons we didn't stay are, there was only 15 amp available, there are 6 sites that are available, you must back in from the busy street, down a curving slope into the site. You do hear the traffic from that busy street. We were informed the women's bath house was not working, and there was a boil water order in effect. No sewer. Positives, being close to Trinity and close to the nice lake. So if you have a small trailer (>24 ft.), a truck camper, van or tent, this would be OK.

New owners have been here since April 2016, they are doing major renovations around the park. Completely redid the bath house and laundry, it is very clean now. Showers are free, laundry is $2.50c, it is on the honor system, just go pay in the office when you are finished. Everyday we were here, they are working on the sites themselves, leveling, new fire pits at each site, the 30amp electric was steady for us, water and sewer was good. We had a site with a view of the cove, beautiful, but the site is not level at all, but doable with some blocks. Wifi only in the office/laundry area, but pleasant to sit in with a new large screen TV. Some of the sites are very close together, others are little more spacious, your choice. There is a little grassy area for our pup, but she doesn't like gravel roads at all. There is a short walk to the waterfront, we enjoyed sitting on the bench watching the birds, breathing in the clear salt air. Then walk up the hill for a fabulous view. We stayed here a week, and enjoyed our time in Twillingate, we will be back.

We think this is a nice little park with 3 way sites. Previous reviews talked about long term residents, but there wasn't a one when we were here. Most sites are back-in with a few pull-throughs spread around. 24 Hour security on premises, very neat and clean bathhouses and laundry. Wifi is available at the Kiosk where you check-in. Green grass and walking trials for the pup. The trails lead down to a lovely city park along the Exploits River, the largest river in NewFoundland. We will stay here again when passing back through the area.

The check-in for this campground was in the garage by the house as you drive in. This park is heavily used by the locals. It is very family friendly with kids running and riding bikes, all over the park. We were here before the season really starts, I think the two pools are a gathering place for families, which is fine, just keep in mind this will not be a quiet place. We were given a site near the bathhouse. We were told that the WiFi will work, it did not the 2 nights we where there. The bath house is very old, could use a little update. The campground grounds are in a need of some TLC, the trees and bushes are very overgrown. We don't know if we will stay here again.

We agree with all the previous posts, well laid out park, very spacious, the gravel sites level and the water was good. Not all the sites have sewer, but there is a dump station available. The 2 bathhouses were clean, but the laundry was small, 3 washers and only 1 of the 3 dyers was working, they say the parts are on the way to fix it. We were asked when we arrived if we would like a site with a view or wifi.....we chose the wifi, and it was good from our site. Lots of room to walk the pup. Hard to find anything wrong with this park. It is the place to stay while waiting for or getting off the ferry. You might need reservations if you come in the caravan season July or August. We will stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights before our ferry trip to Newfoundland. Level and grassy sites, the wifi was adequate, the utilities strong, only antenna tv, if you can pick anything up. There is a nice little library area, with books to trade, the bathhouse is very clean, as is the laundry. There is a wonderful view across the Little Bras d'Or, The park was only about 1/3 full this time of the year, but it could have a different feel during the busy season, July and August. The staff was very helpful and efficient. Nice walk along the lake for the pup and to stretch your legs. All in all a nice place, and we will stay here again.

This is the kind of place we like to keep a secret, all to ourselves, but it has to be one of our favorite places. When we were here, there were only 2 other sites taken, so the electric was fine, the cable was fine, the restrooms, the laundry, the wifi all fine. The view here is spectacular, the park was well taken care of. I can see that the sites would feel cramped if it was full, but I would overlook that because of the location. The pup had beautiful green grass to walk on. As you can tell, we will stay here again.

We made reservations since we were arriving for the Memorial Day weekend, but we really did't need them, the park had many sites available with some seasonal sites taken. The office gave us the Passport rate for a few days even though it was the holiday, nice of them. There are two levels to the campground, the lower level has more trees and some unleveled sites. We were in the section near the front, where the grass and gravel sites are fairly level, and just a few trees scattered around. The Electric and water were strong, the Cable good, Wi-Fi spotty at times, four Washers and dryers in the small laundry area. There is an above ground pool and a very small play area for kids. The appearance of the park is nothing special, but you do have a picnic table and fire pit. This is a good place to stay to get housekeeping chores done, but if in the area again, we may try a different location. We stayed here in a travel trailer.

This park is a perfect place for us to unwind for a while. We stayed for a week, we got the 7th day free, it is still off season here, so the price reflects that. I agree with most of the previous posts, there are many seasonal sites, so I would call for reservation, some of the sites are tighter than others, especially for the bigger rigs. But we liked it a lot, our site 28 was level and overlooked the marsh, beautiful to just sit out and relax. The cable had 70 channels, the wifi strong, the laundry and bathrooms clean. The whole park was very clean, our site was raked and very tidy. Sprint/Verizon worked well. Good room to walk the pup. It was very quiet here, we will stay here again, when in the area.
