8 RV Parks near Rocky Harbour, Newfoundland
Aug 2017 - $34.00
Rate of $34.00 per night total after KOA club membership discount for full 3 - way hookup, 30 amp. Previous reviews are accurate. Our site 100 was a back in site, somewhat level with water and electric conveniently located midway down the left side, however sewer was located beyond the rear of the coach and required a second sewer hose extension to be able to use. This is a large park accommodating all types of camping, many tent sites and definitely caters to families. Many activities and toys available to entertain children. Park fronts on a lake with an on-site beach. Roads are dirt/gravel and in some areas tighter than others. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. Did not check out the bathroom/showers. Many trees throughout the park, some sites secluded while others are more open as was ours allowing for satellite access. Both our Verizon and T Mobile phones had a useable signal, no signal for Sprint. Park is in a great location for a base to explore the surrounding area, two towns within a few minutes' drive and of course Gros Morne Park. This is a very busy park, we would stay here again if in the area. - ECM1

Seems reviews of this campground are definitely based on location. We were in a very clean 20 amp electric/water site that backed up to a lake and it was awesome. There was an issue with a cracked electrical plug and it was fixed immediately-great service! The site was spacious, private, wooded but definitely much more fitting for a smaller rv. The open field where the Class A's and trailers were wasn't as attractive. There was a well stocked camp store that was run by very friendly camp hosts. Great place for kids with a nice playground, bouncy pillow, planned activities, every day and water toys at the lake. There was also an evening activity for "adults only" that is not to be missed - great fun after a day of traveling! Yes, adults get to play too! - Breezy2

Okay KOA inside Gros Morne National Park. A few back in 50 amp sites which we used. Back in and pull thru 30 amp kind of level full hookup gravel sites. Lots of other options for small rigs or tents. WIFI is barely adequate, pick your hours. Nice store and lake with walking paths. Would stay here again. Water is good and you can get free firepit for your site. - teepee51

Easy check-in, courteous staff / owner. Since we were there only overnight, we didn't hook up water. Level gravel back-in site. All utilities easily accessible. Clean shower / restroom. Actual price, converting to US funds was approximately $30.65 which does include the tax. Wi-Fi a bit weak. It kept disconnecting, but was able to get and send emails with just minor frustration. We would stay here again. - thetravelkids

Grading on the Newfoundland curve and it earns higher points because it has good water (no BWA and we had higher than 45 PSI pressure and had to regulate it), good power (I could make coffee and the voltage remained above 115 V), and good Verizon signal. Strange feeling to be in a small town and yet feel like an urban campground after camping in so many rural locations. Yes, the male owner is not very sociable - the female owner will go out of her way to help. We were parked near the front and it was gravel, but it was well-levelled gravel, no mud, and a good base to explore (see tips). Our area had no vegetation between campers but there are secluded sections if you have a small rig. We would have no hesitation staying here again. - cherib

Campground is close to the national park, which is a good thing, but that's about it for this park. First the staff were incredibly rude. I think he is possibly the ownly rude person in the entire province. Newfoundland is beautiful with friendly people, but not this owner. After you get past your friendly welcome, you realize that you are spending the night/week in a gravel parking lot with 50 of your newest friends. There is not a tree to be found and you are on the road, so if privacy is what you are looking for, check out another campground up the street. If you're still good with your friendly welcome and the lack of privacy, than the lack of water might get you. There is only a trickle at every site and this is normal for this campground. We have a low flow shower head and even that struggled with the lack of water pressure. I won't even get into the wifi that couldn't download and email or the countless cars and trucks that fly through the parking lot/campsites. Beautiful national park, but stay somewhere else. Not worth the cold welcome, close spots, lack of water pressure or absence of any useable wifi. - Brett Furlong

Great access to wide variety of trails. 80 % of sites taken by tenters. Suited to rigs less than 30'. Lots of work being done on about 20 sites to add power and water. Should be finished upgrades this summer. Also excellent cold showers. It would appear when campground fills up the water heater cannot keep up. Strict adherence to noise rules at night. Pretty quiet. - RJN

This campground is best suited for tents and small RV's. There is cell phone coverage throughout the park. There is a dump station but black tank flushes are not possible because there is no fitting at the end of the hose - good planning Parks Canada. The rate quoted is with the $8 discount per day with the annual Parks Canada Discovery pass. - driftdiver1

Nice Park, well placed, staff was excellent. Great hiking to beautiful places. Highly recommended. - nhtenter
Aug 2017 - $25.00
Rate of $25.00 per night plus tax for 30 amp electric and water only, there is a "Boil Order" in place for the water before drinking, No sewer dump available on site. Closest sewer dump is 11 miles back, free and just a few hundred feet off the highway. Easy access and clean. Not all sites have 30 amp electric, some with 20 amp and water and some water only. The RV Park is located just off the shoulder of the highway. Every site borders the highway on one end and the bay on the other end. There are no roads, the park is one large relatively level lot of crushed gravel. Sites are well marked and separated by a small barrier. No shade, totally open. Each site is extremely deep and adequate in width to allow for comfortable use of slide outs, awnings and outdoor camping without encroachment on the neighbor. The office offers a very small store with a few basic items to include fishing items. There is one single bathroom and one single shower room. The rooms are not fancy, the shower is a residential type plastic shower stall with lots of hot water. Both rooms are functional and clean. Although right on the highway, traffic noise was not really a factor. Verizon and T Mobile worked well, no Sprint service. There is a fishing dock. Whales frequent the bay. The manager/owner is very hospital and willing to please. We would stay here again. - ECM1

We enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Family run park with Level back-in sites right on Bonne Bay, beautiful views. Good wi-fi is available, the 2 wash rooms are keep clean, and with hot water. The father and son team here are very nice and accommodating. This is a basic campground, with no frills, it is right on Rte 431, but the traffic really didn't bother us. There is a boil water warning in the area so bring drinking water with you. No sewer or dump station, come with empty tanks. But with that said, this would be our place to stay when in the area. - Living the Dream
Jul 2015 - $28.00
Nice little park - excellent waterfront location - watched whales feeding from our camper window right in the bay! Used a 20A site - GFI kept popping during heavy rainstorm... Water is under a "boil" order. Use the dump station in the GMNP about 10 miles before you reach the park. Owners JUST installed satellite internet during our stay - WiFi good near the office, marginal away from building, but they were trying to correct that. Sites quite close to the road, but minimal traffic at night so no issue with noise. Would certainly stay here again. - Loggenrock

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

This park is at the end of a long, winding highway, which big rigs may wish to avoid. (Especially the sharp turn onto Highway 431 near Woody Point!) Sites are back-in, with good privacy, picnic tables and fire pits. Washrooms seemed clean. There are no hookups or cell reception, but the free Wi-Fi did work for me; it's available in the "public kitchen" area, but does not extend throughout the campground. It's a short drive back to Trout River, where there is a gas station, laundromat and restaurant (but no cell reception there either).
Price was $18.60 CDN, plus day pass or annual pass. - Neil C.

It's well worth the twisty, hilly roads to get to this park which is surrounded by lovely views in every direction. The gravel loop was easy to navigate in our 37' MH, but we are glad we made a reservations because they had only one site big enough for us. The site was lovely: grassy with a gravel pad, picnic table, fire ring, and private with tall evergreens all around. Plan ahead for boondocking, as there are no hookups and the potable water faucet at the bathhouse ran very slowly when we tried to fill our tank. Though we had to ask them to turn the WiFi back on a couple of times (they shut it down to conserve power), it was otherwise very reliable and quite speedy. Bathrooms were simple and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and felt it was an outstanding value at this price. - DaveInOhio

Talk about a campground that has nothing - this is it. No water or electric sites, not even a dump station on site. There is no phone service with any carrier. The closest place to get cell phone reception is 20 km away at the Discovery Centre. The campground does have a kitchen shelter that supposedly has WiFi, but during my 4 day stay I never met anyone who could connect. There are 2 electric outlets in the kitchen shelter but they are powered by a generator that is turned on only from 8:30 pm to 11pm. Have you ever tried washing dishes in a sink with faucets that require you to hold them open constantly or take a shower where you have to push it on every 3 to 5 seconds ? - just more fun experiences that await you at this campground. And do not even think about camping here if your RV is over 28 feet long, except in site #44, which can accommodate somewhat larger rigs. While sites are generally quite private they have very narrow entries. There are no trails within the campground and nothing is within walking distance of the campground. Unlike most national parks where there are advantages to camping within the park, there are no such advantages here - the closest trails are 10 to 15 km away, with the Discovery Centre being 20 km away. Typically I love camping in Canada's national parks; but this is the worst national park campground I have ever stayed in. If you want to spend time exploring the southern part of Gros Morne, my suggestion would be that you commute from Rocky Harbour or stay at The Water's Edge campground in Shoal Brook or one of the two campgrounds in Lomond, which are located on rte 431. BTW the Trout River Pond tour boat is no longer operating. - driftdiver1

This is a salmon fishing camp - literally! It is a mile from the entrance to Gros Morne Park! Located right on a Salmon River, with a great walking trail from the campground, it's filled with very friendly seasonal fisherman, families and nice owners. Power is supplied by their own generator, 15 amp service, so power management skills are a must - but the locals will help you out with the fuse box. Sites are either in a gravel parking lot or a wooded loop both of which are filled with seasonals. They also have cabins. Sites are VERY close together and we were fortunate to have really wonderful neighbors that we truly enjoyed getting to know. There is a very friendly local bar at the front of the property which has entertainment on the second Saturday of the month. Wasn't there for the Saturday night event but enjoyed having a cold one with the locals on some very hot afternoons. Salmon River was impressive! - Breezy2

We had an EXCELENT stay! We stayed for a full week, week days were peaceful and quite nice for family's hiking and salmon fishing the campground is located right on the beautiful lomond river and there is a number of walking trails to different parts of the river which was absolutely beautiful. This camp site is also located right in Gros Morne national park and is close to the tablelands, Gros Morne mountain and tons of great excursions around the national park. So much to do around you could spend a month there and still not complete everything. The cabins were quite tidy two rooms a double bed in each in the main room of the cabin there is a recliner love seat fireplace and a small television with satiate tv they also have internet which was a little spotty at the cabin but worked great in the lodge, snack bar and office. They also have tent sites, even sites and motel units available. During the weekend the campsite tends to fill up as the have entertainment in the lodge until late in the night but all the people there were quite friendly and the owner was always around when needed as well as her grown son and if not the workers at the snack bar would be happy to call up to then or help you out if you needed anything. We had a great stay and would recommend it for a future reference! Would definitely stay again - Mary Martian

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

Good power, good water (no BWA -boil water advisory), septic at the site. This is really a strip of spaces along a quiet road overlooking the bay. Had good Verizon signal. We would use this park again. - cherib

WOW!!! The best view in the park. We had great water view and Wi-Fi was great. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets. The washrooms are large and clean and sewer on site.The owners are very nice I am not sure why the previous poster complained that the owners would not let them in their house, well DUH! We stayed three nights. Best rates in the park. - 2011montana

This campground is all about the view and little else. The campground is on land next to their B&B. They just put gravel along the side yard and slotted in several sites. Since wifi is so important to many of us: this was completely lacking. The camping area is so small and so close to the house, there is no reason that service was so bad, except that it is grossly inadequate. Owner blamed people streaming.... Not possible; we couldn't even get a signal. Owner would not let us into his living room to get reception. He said that was for the guests. What are we ? Trailer trash. Walking distance to grocery store and restaurants. - Scrst
