Park/motel under new owners as of May - very helpful people! Actually have good, drinkable well water (not common in Newfoundland) and good Internet at most sites. Washrooms a bit dated but very clean and functional. Good warm showers! Large open area for big rigs - we had a watr/electric back-in with good screening from neighbors. Would recommend this to other travelers. We camped at Country Inn Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were very pleased with this campground. The electric/water sites are shaded and somewhat private . The full service pull-throughs are closer together. There are no potholes at this time. Sites are somewhat gravel but are level and roomy enough. Staff was most helpful, even making phone calls to get needed information. A nice stop on a nice town with shopping and restaurants nearby. We camped at Country Inn Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed four nights, adding one night to our planned stay of three nights. Service has been friendly. They didn't have a full service site the first night so gave us one with water and electric. We were told that when site 65 opened up we could move there in the morning and then come to the office and settle up for our stay. Once on the site we extended the stay as the internet was good and electric also good. It rained while here and our site is fine but the roads are muddy. There are potholes in the main entry roads but in the campsite areas the roads are better, still sloppy with muddy water. We camped at Country Inn Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Gander Aviation museum is worth a visit. I wouldn't recommend staying in Gander and driving to and from Twillingate as it is at least a 2 to 2 1/2 hour drive due not to the distance but the speed limits which top out at 80 KPH (50 MPH). On the way to Twillingate is Beothuk Historical Site, a Native American village site, the last of the Beothuk people died in the 1820's.

We stayed here two nights. Park was nice with good power and water. Wi-Fi worked well. Shower and restrooms were clean. The roads in this park are terrible. The potholes must have gotten worse since the previous review. When you have signs printed saying "if you splash water when going through a pothole you are speeding" tells me they have this issue all the time. The owners should drive a motorhome over these holes rather than a pickup truck to see what they can do to the coach. I also was disappointed that I reserved a full hookup but could not get one when I arrived. I was told some people had not left when scheduled so I could not get a full hookup.

This park is much improved from previous reviews. The potholes have been filled with gravel and it it is still bumpy, but passable. We took it slow in our 38' motorhome and had no trouble. There is now wifi at the sites! The signal was strong and steady - a rare treat! Utilities were good. We extended our visit here, and we would stay here again.

We camped in this park for three nights. This park like most of the campgrounds in the area has many pot holes in the park. We had a pull through site which was a level crushed rock site. The water pressure and power appeared to be okay. There appears to be many permanent residents. The campground is a little difficult to find so if going there be sure to look for the very little blue camper signs on roadside posts. The Internet was pretty fast but a weak signal, and the connect was dropped many times. The person at the motel desk, where one checks in was friendly. The sites are very close together but acceptable for a limited stay. I would stay there again when in the area. We camped at Country Inn Motel & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly greeting in the modern motel office where you can sit for a Wi-Fi signal. Our site was wooded but very un level so we ended up pulling in forward and using blocks. Small washroom a bit of a walk from site but adequate. Many puddles in bumpy road due to rains. Ok for an overnight, and Gander has plenty of services. Don't miss the recently updated Aviation Museum, well worth a visit. We camped at Country Inn Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This quiet and easily accessible park is about 40% nicely treed sites; the balance (including all the fully serviced sites) is little more than a gravel parking lot (more accurately, multiple gravel parking lots). The site assigned to us was reasonably level (and all the other parking lot sites looked to be equally spacious and level) and wide enough to easily park our toad beside our entry door. Speaking of sites: before paying we walked into the park to see our assigned site (mostly because of the condition of the road, wanted to see if the entire park was maintained as poorly; if it had been we would have left, and boon docked at Wal-Mart) only to find that our assigned site was already occupied. We were given the adjacent one. The interior roads are INCREDIBLY ROUGH. A tire-eating pot hole every three or four feet; we crawled at less than 2 mph and still our coach (36' pusher with 22 inch wheels) rocked violently from side to side. Lots of cupboards got rearranged during the short drive from entry to site. The park does not offer in-rig Wi-Fi. The park is, however, connected with small motel and Wi-Fi is available near/in lobby. Park is far enough from highways and arteries that nights are quiet, peaceful and dark. No locked gate or security but because of the location (and a goodly number of seasonal campers) we felt very safe. We stayed here for four nights; we would stay here again ONLY IF no other nearby full service park were available (want good roads and in rig Wi-Fi). No in-park laundromat and the single commercial laundromat in Gander (hard to find) has a per-load cost of 2.50 to wash and 2.50 to dry (do your laundry elsewhere). FYI: there is a superb Speedy Auto Glass outlet just down the highway from the park that I highly recommend if you need glass service. We camped at Country Inn Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here since it was centrally located to see the Kittiwake coast. Management is great. Wi-Fi was very sporadic and not dependable. Several seasonals in the park but clean and well kept. We would stay here again. We camped at Country Inn Motel & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient to the Trans Canada Highway. Most sites are gravel and fairly level. Sites are narrow. Pull throughs require disconnecting the towed vehicle, but will fit a 45 footer. We had a 30 amp site, but the voltage fluctuated so much we unplugged. At the time we were drawing minimal current, but all the other pull throughs were occupied and we had the last in the line. If the electric had worked, I would have rated it an 8. The Wi-Fi works, but the signal at site 1 is very weak. We camped at Country Inn Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.
