Being a provincial park, the reservation fee of $9 added $3 per day to the rate so this stay was more expensive than other parks. The water is always listed at BWA (Boil Water Advisory) but the park ranger said that they never take the sign down for liability reasons even though the water is constantly tested good. The ranger was VERY helpful and friendly. The site was not as level as I like, with about a 5" drop which required blocks. The view from the bath house was outstanding. We camped at Dildo Run Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go slow in the park - lots of holes. While we liked the site, we probably should have stayed closer to Twillingate, a MUST DO for the area. Loved the performance of the Split Peas, enjoyed the Dinner Theater. Must visit the lighthouse with dramatic cliffs.

We wanted to visit Twillingate while in Newfoundland and decided to stay at a Provincial Park. Dildo Run was in a good location for visiting this area and a nice park. There are only electric hookups (50/30/20A) at the site (no water or sewer) but there are water hydrants and a dump station. However, the water hydrants say that the water needs to be boiled - don't know if this is temporary situation or not.

Other folks staying here have indicated that the restrooms/showers are really nice

The interior roads are adequate - in the one-way section they are fine. In the two-way section, it would be tight if we met another RV. We camped at Dildo Run Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Been warned by another camper that it is difficult to get on ferry to Fogo Island. We enjoyed Twillingate, Durrell, and Crow Head, as well as walking around the park, instead.

(with a negative comparison to Butter Pot Provincial Park).

This is another quality provincial park. The sites are quite private and some tenting sites are provided with stairs up or down to reach very secluded spots, many adjacent to the water. Unserviced sites are $15 and serviced are $23. Water advisory required it to be boiled. This is the perfect location for day trips to Twillingate and the Islands. Laundry facility and 'Comfort Station' are at one end of the park. We camped at Dildo Run Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.
