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). We camped at St. Barbe RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dry camped to catch the Labrador ferry in the morning. Spotless showers. Potable water. Good Wi-Fi hotspot only if you are near the office. Dump station. Fenced in gravel lot, but well suited for its purpose. Walking distance to ferry dock. Gas bar/convenience store across street. We camped at St. Barbe RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a fenced in parking lot with electric hookups for RVs. Water is not available at your site, rather you need to fill up your fresh water tank when entering the compound. Inquire if the water is potable. A dump station, laundromat, hot showers, gas bar, and convenience store are on site. Across the road is a restaurant and Inn. Likely the only people who would make use of this place are those who don't want to take their RV when they go to Labrador for a few days, or those who are catching an 8am ferry. We camped at St. Barbe RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was a pleasant surprise after reading the older reviews.  Yes, it is basically a big, overpriced parking lot.  But it is clean, level, gravel, and the electrical hookup worked well.  There are no water hookups available, probably because their water for drinking is always under a boil advisory.  So bring drinking water. There is a picnic table and garbage can at each site.  The WiFi also worked pretty well at our site (except during rainy weather), which was at the far end of the park.  There is a big building with laundry, full kitchen, and bathrooms.  All are in excellent shape and immaculate.  The lady in charge is very nice and helpful.  You can reserve a site without giving a credit card number, which is a plus for travelers with spotty, expensive cell service.  The down side to that is they don't take credit cards. We used this as a base camp for the ferry to Labrador and also for a day trip to L'Anse aux Meadows.  If you have time to kill, Black Duck Cove is a nice little community with a beautiful boardwalk trail. Ask for #14.  I would stay here again. We camped at St. Barbe RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$16 for no hookups here, ($19 if you want a cord stretched from office to your rig) but was quite adequate to drop the trailer and take the ferry to Labrador. Right across the street from the ferry ticket office. The bathhouse and laundry area are modern and clean; had very helpful and pleasant staff. We camped at St. Barbe RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We used this park for an overnight ferry trip to Labrador by car and left the RV in the park. The office building is very clean with three new large capacity washers and dryers in the laundry room, a meeting room, and showers. While taking a shower be aware of a pressure change and move away from the stream as it will go hot or cold depending on the new demand for water elsewhere in the building. Otherwise, the pressure was great. Water was on a "boil order" so come with as much in your tank as you'll need for your stay. There is a dump station. Sites around the perimeter chain link fence are numbered but no hookups. On one side of the office building are two 30amp plugs. On the other side the same, but the office has supplied, in addition, two long extension cords out the window for 15amp service from plugs in the building. At the rear of the building is another extension cord out the window for 15 amp service. The park is right across from the ferry terminal office, and loading for the ferry is just a block away. There is also a gas station next door with easy access for all size rigs. Staff was very pleasant. The city is trying to get funding to upgrade the number of electrical sites next year. With such easy access to the ferry we could forgive the transient water pressure, and we knew ahead of time that water may not be available. We would stay here again even if not going to Labrador. Electricity $20, dry $16, tent $12. N51*,12.000, W056*,46.634, on the left hand side of the road. We camped at St. Barbe RV Park in a Motorhome.

The only positive about this so called "RV Park" is the showers are new and very clean. But the water pressure is worse than in my RV!! If another person showers or the cloths washing machine is running the water pressure is even worse. As far as the 3 or 4 elect sites you may need an extension cord to reach the elect plug from where you park your rig. There are NO marked or labeled RV sites. Everything is on an unmarked gravel parking lot. But it is a place to stay if you are waiting for the ferry. If you happen to be here when a 20 to 30 rig caravan arrives you will be jammed in with them or told to leave. Since you are dry camping anyways, drive about 4 miles north on HWY 430 to an old gas station which burned down. There is a level parking area there almost as big as St. Barbe RV Park and it is free. We camped at St. Barbe RV Park in a Motorhome.

This "campground" is directly across the street from the ferry to Labrador. It is essentially a gravel parking lot with 3 electric only sites, plus 15 or more dry camping sites. The sign says the water is not potable. This RV park is run by the town of St. Barbe as an accommodation for travelers going to Labrador on the ferry. The bathrooms and showers are very clean and brand new. We were almost alone in the park until invaded by a big caravan first thing in the morning. The campground has good ratings in Woodall's (forget what they are) and it was a little surprising since there's nothing there. But the bathrooms and showers, and proximity to the ferry, make up for it. We camped at St. Barbe RV Park in a Motorhome.
