6 RV Parks near Charleston, Newfoundland

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. Location was ok but probably should have gone further up the Bonavista Peninsula to stay closer to Trinity and Bonavista. - cherib

Rate of $25.00 per night plus tax for 30 amp electric and water, no discounts offered. Park is located next to highway and road noise could be a problem for some. Roads throughout the park are gravel in fair condition with plenty of maneuvering room. Sites are located around the parameter of the property with little shade provided by the large trees on the fence line. All are back in with most sites having a pad and patio of gravel, same as road area while some have a bit of grass. Water and electric hookups are located at the left rear of the site, easily accessible and worked as designed. There is a boil water notice in effect before drinking. The park has a central sewer dump station on site that is easily accessible for all sizes and kinds of rigs. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Like most parks we have visited in Canada, this park has a large population of seasonal units occupying better (guessing) than half the sites. There is a small playground for the children and a lake fronting one side of the park for swimming, boating and fishing. There are two unisex bathroom/shower rooms that are clean and cedar wood lined (smells nice) on the back of the office. Not fancy, shower stalls are plastic residential type stalls. Office staff is friendly. Office has very small store offering a few basic supplies and firewood. Verizon and T Mobile worked well - no Sprint service. Our site had a wide open sky for satellite reception, however did have a bit of a time positioning the XM radio antennae to get a signal. This is a no frills facility, very adequate for our needs, a very fair value. We stayed 2 nights and would stay again if in the area. - ECM1

Lovely park on a small lake. We stayed here to tour the Bonavista peninsula. A storm was coming with high winds, so the owner placed us between two other large trailers to shelter us, thank goodness. Otherwise you could park on the lake area. - Kincardine

This cozy, quaint, small (7 site) campground is a blast to the past. Easily accommodates any Class B or C campers that are 24' or less and tents. Sites have good water, 15 amp electric and a dump station is available. It is next to a road but traffic noise is not an issue at night. Adequate bathhouse is available for those that require it. Camp store and small cafe on site staffed by very friendly hosts. Would stay here again when exploring the Trinity, Port Rexton, Old Bonaventure area. - Breezy2

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. - Living the Dream

This is a small modest older park tied to a historic little cabin resort dating to the 1940s. Offers the basics for a stay while visiting nearby town of Trinity. The owners are gems, very friendly and welcoming, based at their little cafe office a short walk along the road from the campsites. There they serve coffee, scoop ice cream, offer hot dogs, etc in a friendly atmosphere where you can sit at a table for a good Wi-Fi signal. Can only handle RV or trailer up to about 26 feet. Bathrooms had toilet, sink shower and there were three...one each of men, women's and handicapped unisex. Felt like we had landed in the 1950s except for the Wi-Fi! Very pleasant stay. - NC Writer

This park is a long narrow site which means a lot of traffic as the roads are one way. Sites are large and quite private with tables and fire pits. This site had a lot of damage from hurricane Igor and as such some maintenance has suffered. Unserviced sites are $ 15 and serviced are $ 23. Water advisory required it to be boiled. The road to the park is either 5 or 12 km of rough gravel road. Good location to tour the Bonavista area from. - lrp374

This is "St Johns" weekend park. It's a scenic "hiking" park but not much else to do. Stayed three nights but probably should have stayed two. There were some nice programs for children. Site was electric only so bring your own water. Water at spigots was called "barky" by locals - definitely a weird color. Site was spacious and somewhat shady during a very hot spell and drought. Understandably no campfires allowed as fire danger was high. They had a small camp store (not a grocery store as advertised on their website) with hand dipped ice cream. The best part of this park was the great people we met who we look forward to seeing again when they come to Florida! - Breezy2

This is a great family park, quiet, lots of space, trails to hike, and 'in season,' activities, guided walks, etc.
The park has a number of loops with different amenities. Some have electricity, some are generator friendly, and another is generator free. In busy season, generator free is quietest (fewer families with big rigs and the commensurate noise). In off season, sites with electricity are generally available and uncrowded.
Individual sites vary in size/layout, most have decent privacy/trees. Check sites online with photos to be sure you do not get an exposed site. Water taps are located throughout the park.
Services are great. Washrooms are clean, clean, and showers are great. There are small store, with internet, coffee machines, laundry service, and camping basics. And ice cream!
Only downside is having to drive 15 minute for so down the highway for swimming.
Check out reservations feature online, you can see maps, and photos of most sites (except loop C). Loop features are listed online as well, in terms of generator usage, quiet hours, etc. - TerraFan

Gravel park roads were easy to navigate to our unserviced site which was a reasonably level gravel pad with plenty of space for our 37' MH and toad. The pad was surrounded by grass and a good cover of trees on three sides that gave a private feel. Some sites had WiFi, but not in our end of the loop, so we went to the camp store to connect. We did not use the bathrooms or the laundry. Note that the rating reflects our unserviced site, and would have been higher had we been on one with hookups. We considered the price a pretty good value for the amenities offered. - DaveInOhio

Excellent park in a beautiful area, wish we could stay longer. Only complaint is the lack of trees in the sites, more privacy would make it a ten. Best shower and laundry facilities we had throughout our 2 week stay in NL. Management is courteous and went above and beyond to help us. - Ecmann

Facilities are located in the center of the park. They have a children's play ground, outdoor shuffle board, meeting and fitness room, along with live music performed by campers.
This is a very clean and well maintained, mainly an adult camp. There's a surcharge if a credit card is used for payment. - Treestand

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. - Soos

Advertised heated pool. One was heated, but VERY small and full of kids. Other was empty, small too, but not heated! Pools close at 6 PM. Keep them open later with "Adult times"! Hot tub was too expensive to use; everything cost extra (including hot water for showers). I hate that. It's the ultimate gouge! Bathrooms, showers, and campsites weren't particularly clean. Dirty fire pit, cigarette butts all over campsite, and bits of paper. - Joanniep

Lots of activities. Pool, beach, boat or canoe rentals, go carts. Sites are clean, level and easy to access. Lake is beautiful. - Hornet424

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. - Soos
