3 RV Parks near Raleigh, Newfoundland
Aug 2016 - $12.00
We have a 43' motorhome (bus). When we arrived, the staff person suggested that we go up to the campsite before bringing the bus to ensure that we could fit into it. Although we specified to the reservation system that we were "over 35 feet", the site (15) would have barely fit our motorhome. We were offered the option to park in the day-use area, which was right on the lake, large, quiet, relatively flat, and hardly used. Since the sites are non-serviced, we weren't losing out on any services: so we decided to use the day-use area.
We didn't navigate the roads with our motorhome, so cannot comment on how easy they are to navigate; our impression was that we could have fit, but it would have been tight in places.
The rangers on staff were very helpful. We had a bolt break on our towbar and they worked with us to find a substitute that would get us down the road far enough to get a replacement. - pattic777

Very nice park, facilities are very clean and laundry available. Good place to stay when visiting the 'arm'. The children's play area is down at the day use area, as is a beach.... if you are brave enough to swim during a northern Newfoundland summer! lol WiFi is available down near the entry. - earthsinger

I have never been greeted by name as I stepped out of my car to register; talk about friendly and organized!!! The campground is split between a meadow and a forest with a lake/beach nearby. The site was level, comfort station extremely clean, park was very well maintained. There is a dump station and water available. I'm not sure why the bugs weren't bad (perhaps too cold.) We saw moose, very large rabbits, and a rare woodpecker during our stay. Staff made great recommendations on local activities from the Viking National Park to the Burnt Cove Ecological Park. Unfortunately, the naturalist/interpreter was eliminated due to budget cuts so we didn't have a guide to the Burnt Cove which was too bad. We used their laundry machines which was handy. A quick tip: switching propane tanks in St. Anthony's was quite expensive. Do it in a bigger town! The ice burgs and whales were amazing, however. - barkingbear

This campground is pretty much the only game in town, but that was OK with us. We had a fairly level back-in site, gravel & dirt. The power was a bit on the weak side, and while Wi-Fi is advertised, I was never able to connect. However, compared to a number of Newfoundland Campgrounds, this is nice! Close to town and close to other attractions. Caution! Moose and Caribou can often been in camp with you. Clean showers / restrooms, plenty of hot water. - thetravelkids

As mentioned in a previous review, the place is...ok. The best spots are for the seasonals. What you get is an open area that if you had a slide you would be opening it into your neighbour. No picnic table. No room. As for the wifi, someone has set it up wrong. It's not from too many people on it. We spent the previous night down the road nearer L'ance aux Meadows at Quirpon. - CaptainCam

Not many options while in St. Anthony, but be prepared. Entrance is hard to maneuver and potholes everywhere. Owners are not friendly and act as if they are doing you a favor letting you stay. They promise Wi-Fi, but it is nonexistent. You may connect at the office at odd hours but still get kicked off every minute or so. 30 amp only and no sewer. Water is good or needs boiled according to which employee you ask. Sites are not close to level so maneuver as best you can. Small store onsite. - teepee51

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. - cherib

The Viking RV Park is conveniently located just a few miles from L'Anse aux Meadows, the landing sight of the Norsmen (Vikings) in the year 1000. They have recently completed an expansion of the campsite which now offers 38 sights. Additional expansion plans call for 12 more sights. We parked our 43 ft MH in a pull-trough sight that was just long enough for our coach and toad.
We had some issues with the electrical service dropping to a low-voltage state a number of times our first evening. As our coach is protected by an electrical management system our electronics were protected so unplugged and ran off our batteries and inverter. During the day, we disconnected the electrical to sensitive items and plugged back in to recharge our batteries. Since the weather was cool we did not require our AC, which would have been problematic if we wanted to use it.
On a very positive note, Viking had the best and fastest Wi-Fi I have had at an RV park. Watching YouTube, streaming movies and/or using FaceTime were all easy and reliable.
We stayed here the last day of Aug and 3 days of Sep so we were able to use our Passport America membership for 50% off on three of the four nights. $70 for 4 nights. - Ron_H

This RV Park is indeed a little gem. 10-15 minute drive from l'Anse aux Meadows, a UNESCO and most picturesque site of Newfoundland. Impeccably clean. While water boil order in effect, this is not unusual in that part of the province. Hosts are delightful. Recommend the home cooked breakfast and delicious homemade pies and jam assortments available at the office. - Irene Clarke
