Open gravel pads - some pull-through, some back-in. Very convenient to Nova Scotia ferry terminal in Placentia (can see the ferry from the CG). Exceptionally clean restrooms/showers. Free use of washer/dryer (only 1 of each, $ donations accepted). 20 amp power on back-ins. Cash only! No Wi-Fi in park, but good free Wi-Fi at Visitors Center 2 min away. Sites filled about 3/4 full by Friday afternoon. Would certainly stay there again. We camped at Argentia Sunset Park in a Motorhome.

This park is a gem...quiet and located less than 5 min from the Argentia ferry from N.Sydney NS...you can actually see the ferry and dock from the RV park! It is on a former US Navy site, so it naturally has good views. It is a municipal park, so it is not always staffed, but the bldg housing the bathrooms, showers, & laundry (free) is always open (& spotlessly clean). The bldg also has a small kitchen with a full electric range and sink for cooking and washing dishes. And, the laundry room walls are plastered with many posters with area historical pictures and commentary as well as ideas of things to do. There is also an extensive trail system close to the campground.

There is no WiFi...however, the Provincial Visitor Center is practically outside the parks front gate AND they have free WiFi that is available 24/7 from their parking lot. So it not unusual to see cars in the parking lot early and late using the WiFi. (Btw, the visitor center staff are VERY knowledgeable and helpful!)

The park is conveniently located to the town of Placentia with restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores as well as a lot of neat historical stuff...don't miss Castle Hill! The park is also convenient to visiting Cape St. Mary Ecological Reserve...a MUST SEE. (But, beware, the road down the cape while very scenic, has many potholes.) We camped at Argentia Sunset Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, clean, open sites park with excellent Worker in reception. Close to Placentia and excellent for anyone taking Argentia ferry to Nova Scotia. Recommended for anyone wishing to visit Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary. WiFi can be found nearby. Washrooms are excellent. Price should be $20 -$25. We camped at Argentia Sunset Park in a Motorhome.

The site is basically a gravel parking lot as stated before. The sites are mostly level and several have great views of the Argentia harbour. The park has 24 hour security and now has high speed Internet. It makes a convenient location to check out Placentia and the surrounding area. We would use this location again if in the area. We camped at Argentia Sunset Park in a Travel Trailer.

The area is a former US Navy base and has lots of space. Lots of trails and fields to walk pets. Very friendly staff. No amenities but a good spot to camp after the 17 hour ferry. We would camp there again. We camped at Argentia Sunset Park in a Motorhome.

This definitely isn’t a destination campground since it’s basically a big gravel parking lot but it is still a good stop even if you aren’t taking the ferry to North Sydney. The sites are fairly level with all connections at back of site. The modern washrooms are clean but have only one commode and two showers. We stayed between ferries so it wasn’t crowded at all. Friendly, helpful staff with knowledge about visiting Placentia, Cape St. Mary’s and exploring the now defunct military base. We camped at Argentia Sunset Park in a Travel Trailer.

Site assigned was a gravel pull through and not level. 24 hour security. Beautiful view of Placentia Bay and great sunsets. Person at registration said the port office below the campground had a WI-FI connection, but I did not check this out. We camped at Argentia Sunset Park in a Motorhome.

Nice clean park. Very near the ferry dock. Good view of ocean and a wonderful sunset the night we were here. We camped at Argentia Sunset Park in a Fifth Wheel.
