1 Park near St Anthony, Newfoundland
Aug 2015 - $30.00
This park is a bad value compared with others in Newfoundland. The roads are mud and gravel with large potholes everywhere. There are no sewer hookups, just a dump station at the end of a muddy, bumpy road. The road out of the dump station is so narrow that brush (badly in need of trimming) rubs the sides of your rig. Wifi is available only very close to the office, and worked less than half the days we were there.
The quality of the sites is highly variable. Most of the large, widely spaced, quiet wooded sites are occupied by long term tenants. Transients seem to be assigned tiny sites close to the highway. Many of these sites are nowhere near level. - JackSchmotzer

This campground caters primarily to seasonal RVers, where the sites are spacious and private. The section for overnighters is simply an open field with 2 rows of RVs lined up facing each other, on very unlevel sites. There is no cell phone coverage by any carrier so it is necessary to drive closer to St Anthony, specifically at least to the Municipal dump 6 km away, to get a signal. There is a pay phone outside the office. Wi-Fi is ridiculous - we have 4 devices (2 laptops, a tablet, and a phone) and only one device could connect and then at only 1 bar when in the same room as the router. I am so fed up with campgrounds that advertise having Wi-Fi when the service they provide is not adequate to even check emails. During our stay, the electricity cut out frequently. No TV stations are available via antenna, but satellite reception works. On weekends they have a chip truck that sells fried fast foods. Their convenience store only stocks bottled water and beer. Washrooms are clean with free hot water and there is a laundry (wash & dry = $2 each). No recycling is available. If you are in this area to visit L'Anse au Meadows and see the icebergs as we were, your camping options are limited. I did not view the private RV park in Quipon, which is closer to L'Anse au Meadows, so cannot comment. Pistolet Bay Provincial Park has only unserviced sites. The town of St Anthony, 10 km from the campground, has 2 grocery stores, gas & diesel, several restaurants, and a couple of hardware stores. - driftdiver1

We were here once before almost 10 years ago. I can't say there has been much change as far as the overnight spots are concerned. Many of the sites are occupied by seasonals. For the transients there are about 12 gravel or grass sites near the front and a larger area (about 25 gravel sites) in the back used by caravans. We got to choose our site from those that weren't already occupied. I chose one near the front as it was closer to the laundry. None of the front sites looked level. Ours certainly wasn't. Electric and water hookups worked fine. The dump station is off in the back of the park. It was in good working order. Laundry had 4 washers and 4 dryers. One of the washers was out of order. Washers worked fine, but dryers could have been a bit hotter. It cost $2 (loonies only) for wash or dry. No cable TV or any channels off the antenna. Didn't bother trying for satellite, but it would be possible in some of the sites. Wi-Fi slow at times and got dropped more than a few times. Still this is a good location between St. Anthony and L'Anse aux Meadows and would stay here again if ever back. - Onemoretrail
