Near Raleigh, which has some nice old buildings & close to L'Anse Aux Meadows. The picnic area was nice although it was raining when we were there so didn't explore the area in detail. There is unsupervised swimming and a campground. There are pit toilets...More

Found the park to be clean and enjoyable. Vegetation very interesting. Comfort centre is clean and large, but shower heads put out very little water. No potable water for RV fill up.

Stayed two nights and had only booked one night. Found the staff at the front gate top notch and helpful. Stayed in site 21, open, airy, and a nice meadow behind the site to watch for moose. Found the campground location ideal after coming off...More

We stayed here in August, and we had a lovely time. The campground is built in and around a large marsh, and the comfort stations were not too far away like some of the other provincial parks we stayed at in Newfoundland. The main issue...More
