3 Parks near St Anthony, Newfoundland
Sep 2015 - $25.00
We used this park for two nights as our base for exploring St. Anthony and L'Anse aux Meadows. We were parked in the front section near the entrance, but weren't bothered by any road noise. The sites are all back-in, gravel or grass, and some more level than others. If all the sites were full along this front side, it would be very tight for slides and awnings. It appeared to us that most of the sites in the back section are for seasonal stays. Wifi was slow at times, but would be a lot worse if more people in the park. Be sure you know the best route to get to the dump station; the front roadway was a narrow path and full of potholes. We didn't use the restrooms or laundry room. - DiplomatTraveler

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

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 park has open and treed sites. Pit toilets are in place throughout the parks and a 'Comfort Station' with flush toilets and showers is available. This park is not really set up for larger rigs as the roads are very narrow making it difficult to park. Overflow in the park may be a better idea. Staff are friendly and very accommodating. This is a good central location to visit the northern tip of Newfoundland. - lrp374

Stayed for 3 nights in old section site 3 (back-in) in 40 ft motor home. Site just fit lengthwise with room for towed alongside the rig. Power post was high enough to hit slide, so be warned. Water boil order in effect. Fortunately we had filled our fresh water at our last stop. 30 amp service constantly dropped below 105 volts with 15 amp load causing surge protector to shutdown. Other than that it is convenient to L'Anse aux Meadows and St. Anthony's. Rt 436 was better than expected based on some reports with only a few Km of heavily patched roadway and a single gravel break that you need to slow to a crawl. - Dennis T

Total rate was $70 for a combo Passport America and rack rate over 4 nights. Good value for what seems to be a typical NL campground. Wi-Fi worked very well. No site separation but enough room.
One point lost for power instability. At times it was down to 107 VAC on one leg and 109 VAC on the other. This with little load on an almost empty campground.
Also of note, the campground is in the middle of what will be at least a doubling of site capacity during 2016. Ongoing additions are having little effect on existing campground area. - Veebyes

This is a pleasant little RV park, just a few minutes from L'Anse aux Meadows, that exceeded our expectations. It's not a really scenic park, but the sites are adequate. The colorful little picnic tables add a nice touch. There's a lot of gravel, some grass, and we were able to get level without much effort. We were in a back-in with a 32' 5th wheel and had plenty of room to park the truck on the side and still have plenty yard to sit in. The 30 amp service was good and there was adequate water pressure. The WiFi is the best we've had in NL. There are shortcomings for units that are not self-contained. There are only 2 showers and 2 toilets to service the whole site, including the tent sites. They are small, nothing fancy, but clean. The tent sites are more private, set among the trees along the path that goes to the water.
By next summer they should have the new section open, and hopefully more washroom facilities are being planned. This is definitely where we would stay if we came back to the area. - pbougeus
