Highbury Gardens RV Park, Kentville, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

A nice shaded campground, a good place to stay, although it is the second most expensive campground of the past 42 stops. Would be a reasonable value at about $7 less per night. We had good power and excellent cellular signal. During the weekend, the smoke was a bit heavy so we just closed up the windows and ran our air conditioner. We camped at Highbury Gardens RV Park in a Motorhome.

While the sites were tight, the view was awesome as we pulled in so we could watch the sunsets. The owner works with you to select the spot you want and helps you get settled. Cash only at $40 CDN. We camped at King Neptune Campground in a Motorhome.

Nimrod's Campground, Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground is run by a non-profit. They were between managers, so the hostess was a very nice volunteer. She let us choose a lake front site, perhaps 10 feet from the water. They are trying to upgrade and put improvements in annually. I was concerned based on some earlier reviews but we liked the park. Arriving mid week, the park was VERY quiet. We would stay here again. We camped at Nimrod's Campground in a Motorhome.

Hide Away Campground & Oyster Market, Dingwall, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Had to work to level as the site sloped and our wheelbase is long. Plenty of trees and an outstanding ocean view after a short walk. Some rigs opt for lower power and can get a nice view, but we chose to camp in the trees. We camped at Hide Away Campground & Oyster Market in a Motorhome.

Sunset Sands RV Park, Port Hood, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is mostly seasonal campers with very few spaces for RVers so call ahead and then verify on your arrival date. When we showed up, the spot that we were promised had been marked as an available spot for anyone arriving. The seasonal sites are clean so that's not an issue, but the actual sites are minimal quality for the price charged. The park manager was delightful and friendly. As previously noted, even with the high nightly fee, they charge for showers (we did not use but helped out another camper with our coinage). My value rating would have been "satisfactory" at $35. We camped at Sunset Sands RV Park in a Motorhome.

Grand Codroy RV-tent Camping Park, Doyles, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This was the top park that we used in Newfoundland. Would probably be an 8 in the US by comparison, but far better than the other 13 parks we used. Good power, good water, spacious sites. We did not get good cell signal so we did try the park's wifi occasionally - had to walk over to a common area to use it. This is a well established park, good layout, nice grass and gravel sites, free firewood. We camped at Grand Codroy RV-tent Camping Park in a Motorhome.

Gros Morne RV Campground, Rocky Harbour, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Grading on the Newfoundland curve and it earns higher points because it has good water (no BWA and we had higher than 45 PSI pressure and had to regulate it), good power (I could make coffee and the voltage remained above 115 V), and good Verizon signal. Strange feeling to be in a small town and yet feel like an urban campground after camping in so many rural locations. Yes, the male owner is not very sociable - the female owner will go out of her way to help. We were parked near the front and it was gravel, but it was well-levelled gravel, no mud, and a good base to explore (see tips). Our area had no vegetation between campers but there are secluded sections if you have a small rig. We would have no hesitation staying here again. We camped at Gros Morne RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Go to the "Kitchen Party" at the Ocean View Hotel for Dave Shears - the best $5 cover charge for 3 hours of fun. We drove to Norris Point and took the ferry to Woody Point to walk around the small town for the afternoon before returning - we met artist Christine Koch at her studio. Her fantastic work hangs in Gros Morne NP discovery center. There's a Fiber Arts fine gallery in town, also.

Viking RV Park, Quirpon, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

Be prepared for significant power management at this park. We switched our refrigerator and hot water heater to propane, almost never used the microwave, and simply making coffee took the voltage below 105 with no other significant load. Accidentally had the small 700W space heater on when making coffee and the voltage dropped below 100V. We were told the water was not under a BWA (boil water advisory). The dump requires some maneuvering. The park worked for what we needed - a site close to L'Anse Aux Meadows. We did not have Verizon signal at this park. We camped at Viking RV Park in a Motorhome.

Must see L'Anse Aux Meadows, and Norstead. We also went to St Anthony to tour the Grenfell Historical properties. Once you turn off 430 to 436, the road is fairly good, but then you will see a pot hole warning sign... SLOW DOWN... many road heaves that will toss your RV severely - your front wheels could come off the ground at the worst one near the RV park. Visit the Dark Tickle location (on 436) where they make the local berry products and do eat upstairs - a pleasant eatery !

Oceanside RV Park, Port Au Choix, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

You park in a long row facing the ocean, and when a storm arrives, it's fairly impressive. Large waves are breaking in front of you and everything is covered with a layer of ocean mist... glasses need to be cleaned frequently. The park manager is very dedicated to your satisfaction and took very good care of us. Even though there was a booking error and we had to move on our last day, he made sure that we were satisfied. Power was good and the water was not under a BWA. (Boil water advisory) We camped at Oceanside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Must take the Western Brook Pond boat tour in Gross Morne National Park - get reservations early as the boats fill up. It's a balance choosing when to go as we were lucky with good weather. North of Cow Head is the Arches Provincial Park - best pics at sunset. There is a summer theater festival in Cow Head but we chose the Sunday night traditional music jam and were delighted. You can take a nice hike on the winter side of Cow Head and see a very short lighthouse and eroded shore lines.

Island Cove Park, La Scie, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a VERY hard to rate park because it has only 15A power, water is under a BWA (Boil Water Advisory, as the whole town has been since 1991), dump station instead of at the site septic, and the sites are a bit uneven. Now... after all those petty complaints... the location (not the park amenities) rates as one of our top 1% out of over 200 campsites that we have used. Camping 100 feet above the bay with 150 foot hills to hike up behind the RV for a more spectacular view... yes... this place is great. It's a long drive to the tip of the peninsula, with lots of bad road segments. Take it slow, and you'll be okay. But get a reservation - only a few spots can handle a motor home. We drove straight in so we could sit and watch the bay from the front windshield ... there's no wind protection so when Hurricane Gert came by, we had ferocious driving rains that blew over heavy park benches and signs, with waves crashing 20-50 feet on shore. Yes... we would definitely come back for the view. We camped at Island Cove Park in a Motorhome.

You must go to the Outpost Tea Room / Museum. Valerie has 4 tables, each with 2 chairs, and has a daily menu that she cooks in the kitchen with you on her porch - we ate there 3 times and probably spent 6 hours just sitting around, drinking tea, and talking. A DELIGHTFUL person to meet and a fabulous cook ! Also, hike the hills surrounding the park to see the jagged rocks that got La Scie (saw) it's name.

Crescent Lake RV Park, Springdale, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

The owners are very friendly, caring people who are developing this park nicely since starting a couple of years ago. Our site was level, spacious, and quiet. Lots of small "attention to detail" touches being added to the park. It is under a permanent boil water advisory as the costs of testing and maintaining a system are not economical feasible, so come prepared. It was dark at night so the stars were beautiful. Had surprisingly good Verizon signal. The lakefront and doc are beautiful. The surrounding area doesn't have the tourist draw at the moment, so this is more of a relaxing stop versus a tourist destination. We camped at Crescent Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dildo Run Provincial Park, Virgin Arm, Newfoundland

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Being a provincial park, the reservation fee of $9 added $3 per day to the rate so this stay was more expensive than other parks. The water is always listed at BWA (Boil Water Advisory) but the park ranger said that they never take the sign down for liability reasons even though the water is constantly tested good. The ranger was VERY helpful and friendly. The site was not as level as I like, with about a 5" drop which required blocks. The view from the bath house was outstanding. We camped at Dildo Run Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed twice here this summer. The water was not under a BWA (Boil Water Advisory) on the first stop, but failed the test on the day we arrived on our second stop. The transits area is open and easy to park after you get through the rest of the park and its potholes which demand a slow speed. We would stay here again.

This was the first park with a BWA (Boil Water Advisory) so we ran on fresh water tank for our stay. Dump station nearby - open concrete box that you dropped your hose into.
