The park is mainly for seasonal campers. We'll located, clean. The campsites are a bit tight. Nice laundromat. Too expensive. - Jojo 007

A very large park on Highway 430, before it meets with the TCH 1. The sites are all pull throughs, grass/gravel mix, and long enough for our 40' MH and tow vehicle. Sites are wide enough for all 4 slides and still plenty of room amongst the neighbors. Wifi was sporadic; strong at times, weak at others. The office was closed while we were there; self check-in was quite easy. We paid cash; not sure what would have happened if we needed to use a credit card. Rate reflects US$ with Good Sam discount for 30 amp/water/sewer. We paid an additional $5CAN/a night for 50 amp. This is a caravan park and also has seasonals; you'll want to make reservations if traveling during busy summer season. - DiplomatTraveler

Stayed here 3 nights in a motorhome and we also had a tent site. Park was nice and clean. Staff was friendly, Wi-Fi worked good, and we had a full hookup. Good location to visit Gros Morne park, which we feel is a must. Price was due to receiving a discount for our Coast to Coast membership. - RayN

This one is off-grid, literally. They have their own onsite generator. Most sites for the transient visitor are only 15 amp, a household plug, no ability to reset the breaker yourself if you overload it, which does not take much. To make do with so little power one needs to be knowledgeable on power management.
Wi-Fi offered is unreliable to nonexistent. There is no cell service in the area.
One area is open lot car park style camping. Another wooded loop needs a good dose of the pruner to cut back roof destroying branches.
For the rate one would expect much better.
What it does have is location being less than a mile from the entrance to Gros Morne NP. - Veebyes

Just a few miles off Viking Trail 430 and before the road turns, twists, and hills on the way to Trout River and Woody Point; active crowd with music in the lodge bar on weekends; several sites are for weekend campers; snack bar on location is very handy; clean washrooms and laundry; salmon fishing; most sites almost level, sites near road not level. Would camp here again. - cruiser2010

When we arrived, no signs for office. Had to ask at one of the stores in front where to register. The young woman who registered me was not friendly and I had to ask for the site number. When we pulled up to the site there was a boil water advisory plus only 15 amp which if I had been told when I phoned I would have gone elsewhere. The site was almost impossible to get into as it was a back-in with an incline and very little space to maneuver. The site was also impossible to get level in. The only other review which I read is totally incorrect. Its says asphalt sites they are gravel & dirt and the traffic noise from the TCH kept us awake and our site and area was not clean. - Arlene T

Great little park. Very clean. Convenient to the Trans-Canada Highway and close to Corner Brook. Shops, gas station, Tim Hortons on site. Hiking trails on site. Friendly staff was very accommodating. Traffic noise from TCH was no problem. We would definitely stay again when we are in the area. - Cathy H

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. - Living the Dream
Jul 2016 - $19.00
This is an unserviced campground between the park entrance and the tablelands area. Sites are large and mostly level (all are back-in), with moderate privacy. Picnic tables, fire pits, central water taps and free showers are available, but no hookups or Wi-Fi. Cell reception (Telus) was almost unusable. Price was $18.60 CDN plus day pass (or annual pass); bring exact change because the park is self-registration; the attendant never showed up the whole time that I was there. There are 3 hiking trails in the area, plus quaint fishing villages a short drive away. - Neil C.

This campground is about equidistant from Wiltondale and the charming town of Woody Point. It is an unserviced Parks Canada campground with 30 sites including 3 waterfront tent sites. All sites have a picnic table and firepit. Weak cell phone coverage is available. The dump station (with black tank flush hose) and filling of fresh water tank are at the entrance to the campground, which is 4 km away from the sites. However, most sites have a grey tank disposal, so if you are staying for a long period you do not have to make the 8km return trek to the dump station. There are two covered shelters with washrooms, dish washing sinks, and wood stoves. They even provide dish soap and a dish rack. Only one of the shelters has electric lights (which turn off at 11pm due to being powered by a generator), hot water, and free hot showers. There are non-threaded water spigots throughout the campground. Wood ($) is available. Sites are available only on a first-come basis, but seldom is this campground full. And even if it is, ask about setting up in the circle - you will not be disappointed! There is a boat launch. CC are accepted. There is self-registration if no attendant is present. The lovely Stanleyville trail begins in the campground and two other trails are close by. The rate shown is with an annual Parks Canada Discovery pass which gives an $8 discount per night. The closest grocery store is in Deer Lake, so shop accordingly for fresh meat and produce. - driftdiver1
