2 RV Parks near St. Barbe, Newfoundland
Aug 2017 - $30.00
Rate of $30.00 per night includes tax for 30 amp electric service only, site 6. No sewer or water available at RV sites but both available at central location on property. RV Park is a large fenced lot of crushed gravel. Lot is on a slight incline with all sites back-in against the perimeter fence. Each site is extremely deep and just adequate in width to allow for use of slide outs, awnings and outdoor camping. Every site has its own trash can and a few have a picnic table. The pavilion/hall houses a full service kitchen, showers, bathrooms and sitting area. It is open 24 hours and is extremely clean, modern and well maintained. Free WIFI in the hall as well as from our site. No Sprint service and Verizon and T Mobile worked intermittently. Excellent location to stage for ferry. We would stay here again if in the area. - ECM1

St. Barbe RV Park is convenient for those taking the ferry across to Labrador as it's located directly across the street from the ferry's ticket office and just down the street from the dock. At first sight it is not visually welcoming as it was a highways maintenance yard that was taken over by the community before being transformed into an RV park. Other than changes to the facilities building and the installation of 30 amp electrical and trash bins at the sites, very little was done. Central water and sewer only. It is clean and comfortable however and the laundromat and showers/washrooms are some of the cleanest we've seen at an RV park. We were told we'd have to come into the office to access their Wi-Fi but my laptop was able to connect without any problems even from our campsite, the furthest from the building. The sites are close together so it could be crowded if it were busy, which it was not during our 3 night stay in our 43 ft. MH. If I were to come this way again I would definitely stay here. - Ron_H

It must have been 'training' day for the 2 young men at the front desk as they were both clueless. The sign indicates 'water' and the 30.00 fee is for serviced site, else 20.00 for unserviced site. However, NO water is available...AND no refunds allowed, so I guess I paid 10.00 for electricity...ouch! Furthermore, even though all the signage clearly states check-out for sites with electricity is 11:00 am, I was told I had to vacate my site no later than 8:00 am as there was a caravan arriving!
As many other reviews have stated, this isn't really an RV campground, but a chain-link fenced in gravel enclosure with 30 amp receptacles located at numbered sites along the perimeter. The sites are fairly level. And, if you want to keep your kitchen clean, there is a large clean kitchen equipped with fridge, stove/oven, microwave, and sink for camper use (also tables & chairs for dining). Also, the laundry room is large and clean and fairly priced at 2.00 per load.
What this place has going for it is that it is conveniently located directly across the street from the ferry office (as well as a motel & restaurant). - itchyfeetx2

Rate of $30.00 per night plus tax, no discounts. The previous reviews are accurate. As the ferry just arrived, there was a rush at the check-in desk (serves both motel & RV Park) and the only clerk was overwhelmed with work, no other help. She was very friendly and positive. We arrived in the rain and this park was a mud pit with ankle deep water covering over a third of the park. Surface area is hard packed dirt mixed with some gravel. There are wild patches of grass and weeds scattered throughout and around the parameter of the park, all are severely overgrown. There is nothing appealing about the appearance of this facility. Our site is barely long enough to keep us out of the travel path for other vehicles. We have a 35' long motor home and this could be very tight if full. Our 30 amp receptacle had a short and we had to plug into the vacant site next to us. Bathroom/showers, in contrast to the grounds are well maintained, very clean and heated. As we can do without hookups for a few days, not sure I would stay here again, might consider Provincial Park or boondocking next time. - ECM1

First of all, RVers need to MANAGE their expectations. Labrador is a challenging place due to #1 its remoteness (many services & amenities RVer's are used to are NOT reliably available); #2 its climate (windy, changeable & at times inhospitable); and #3 its geographical features (rocky barrens, very few forested areas, little or no grass--just lots of gravel). However, with that said, it is a place NOT to be missed because of the sheer beauty of the place and the open & friendly people.
So, NLI campground is basically a level gravel parking lot with a gorgeous water view, FULL hookups, and is located across the street from the NLI hotel & restaurant. The facilities are immaculate (I even saw the owner sweeping and washing floors!). WiFi is available-but at times slow & erratic (not NLI fault, merely symptomatic of service on Labrador). By using wifi in the hotel bar, lobby, or restaurant (& frequently from the campsite) we were able to do everything we needed to do.
In summary, NLI is very conveniently located (10 minutes from the ferry), has the services I needed, has a restaurant with good food, and has friendly helpful service. - itchyfeetx2

Talk about an RV park that looks like a parking lot - this is it. The 14 full service sites appear occupied primarily by workers with a few tourists thrown in for good measure. Sites for overnighters are not level. There are clean washrooms with free hot showers and laundry facilities on site, a restaurant attached to the Inn, and Wi-Fi is available inside the Inn. No recycling is available. Next door is a Robins (that sells partridgeberry muffins), a small convenience store, and a gas station that sells diesel. There is a beautiful sandy beach in L'Anse au Claire, but mid-August in Labrador is not the warmest time to be lying out on a beach. The nearby town of Blanc-Sablon in Québec, has two proper grocery stores. This is the closest RV park to the Newfoundland-Labrador ferry and approximately 80 km from the Red Bay National Historic Site of Canada, which just last year was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Given the road conditions, if you are here to visit Red Bay, I would suggest staying here and doing day trips. Between the ferry and NLI, there are a few pull-offs which, if you are here for only a couple of days and can boondock, you may wish to consider. Also, the Provincial Park in Pinware (unserviced sites but with washrooms & dump station) has some waterside sites that can accommodate rigs up to about 40 ft. In Red Bay the Harbour View RV Park has 4 very narrow full-service waterfront sites. - driftdiver1
