I would rate this campground mediocre, as it is basically a parking lot, but I also don't think there is much more to choose from. For a KOA I would say it is poor. Staff at arrival were not friendly and I felt pushed through as they seemed in a hurry and as far as amenities the surroundings did not encourage sitting outside to enjoy, as there was nothing to enjoy. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the open pull-through area. Access was easy with a big rig. Got DirecTV. Gravel roads were without potholes. They have several loops with private long back-in sites that were well maintained as well. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Motorhome.

$36 CDN for a large, level, private back-in site with 30-amp electric, water, picnic table and fire pit. Other site configurations are available, including full hookups. Interior gravel roads were well maintained. The grounds, my site and the washrooms were very clean. The free Wi-Fi was useless (even though the signal strength was very good); 63% packet loss meant that nothing worked, even in the late morning when most of the overnight campers had already left. I got very good Telus cell reception at my site. The office staff were friendly, but put me in a site that already had another camper in it... apparently someone was told to move into that site, but the staff didn't update the computer, so it thought the site was empty.

As seems typical with KOA, it's MUCH pricier than other options (especially compared with $18.60 for sites in the national park), but when you need hookups, it's the only option. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Tent.

We made reservations a few days ahead thankfully, because the park was full and very busy when we arrived. It was a weekend and the weather was lovely. Lots of families with children enjoying the varied activities in the park. Our site was FHU and in a gravel area near the front of the park. There were many other great sites with lots of trees and privacy. When we stay again I will request one of these sites. The park and all facilities were extremely well maintained. The owners were helpful and very visible during our stay. We would recommend this park and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was an enjoyable stay with a very private tent site. Unfortunately the ground was impossible to put tent pegs into. We had a camp fire pit and the picnic table, electricity and water. They had a nice store, and cool jumping pillow for kids. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Tent.

Park is the best place to stay when visiting Gros Morne if you need electric and water. We stayed in the two way hookup area and used the dump station as the three way sites are basically a parking lot while the two ways are wooded and more private. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Motorhome.

Convenient, spacious site in the core of the Gros Morne Park area. Great for local site seeing. The campground seems well maintained. Probably the most level site we have encountered on our trip. Subtle delination of your site with yellow rocks (we had a back-in 30A full service site). Adeuqate site with a good tree buffer behind us to separate us from sites on the other side. Friendly, helpful staff and the cleanest, most efficient laundromat we have seen on our long journey. Wi-Fi was spotty one night but generally good. A great site for exploring Gros Morne, We spent 3 mights here but needed more! We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Motorhome.

A dust bowl with very slow and limited Wi-Fi. Password expired 4 hours after registering and 1/2 hour after office closed for the night. Did not get Wi-Fi again until office opened in AM. Very tight sites and noisy kids. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for over a week while exploring Gros Morne and could not have found a nicer campground. Management was great, and all the services worked well. Only complaint was the dust from the roads. We would stay here again. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Motorhome.

This park was full during our stay. Check-in was quick and efficient with a reservation. Our pull-through site was plenty long to park the car behind the motorhome. Utilities worked well, as did Wi-Fi. Did not check the washrooms, so can't comment on that. This is a well-kept park with pride of ownership showing. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly choose this park again. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Motorhome.

We selected this park based on the positive reviews on this site so we were surprised and disappointed to find out that the only sites they have that are suitable for a "big rig" are in an area that is nothing more than a gravel parking lot. All the more scenic or private sites are relatively small and have no electric or sewer hook ups. On the positive side the lake is beautiful, there are facilities for kids and the Wi-Fi works well - but you're still in a parking lot! We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 10 days in our 36' fifth wheel. It was a typical KOA campground with their usual high standards. Very beautiful are and they get lots of caravans. Probably should have a reservation. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A beautiful park (Good Sam member) in the middle of the spectacular Gros Morne National Park. Our private site had evergreens and bushes on three sides and was well-groomed and graveled. Washrooms, laundry, and showers spotless. No cable TV - the norm for Newfoundland - but received CBC on the amplified antenna, and after an initial bout of crankiness, the Wi-Fi worked fine from the site.) Staff was friendly (ever meet an unfriendly Newfie?) and although we didn’t try it, they have a restaurant on site that gives campers a 10 percent discount - looked good to us. I would have given it an 8, but I reserve that rating for similarly nice CGs that invest in a pool and Cable/Sat TV. Highly recommended to all passing through the area. We camped at Gros Morne / Norris Point KOA in a Motorhome.
