National Park
Terra Nova National Park is located on the east coast of Newfoundland in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, along several inlets of Bonavista Bay. The park takes its name from the Latin name for Newfoundland; it is also the original Portuguese name given to the region.Terra Nova's landscape is typical of the northeast coast of Newfoundland, but with remnants of the Appalachian Mountains contributing to widely varied and rugged topography throughout the region. The park's seacoast consists of several rocky "fingers" jutting into Bonavista Bay along an area stretching from just north of Port Blandford to the vicinity of Glovertown. The coastline varies from cliffs and exposed headlands to sheltered inlets and coves, contributing to Newfoundland's prime recreational boating area.Inland areas consist of rolling forested hills, exposed rock faces, and bogs, ponds and wetlands. Wildlife protected by the park range from small to large land mammals, migratory birds, and various marine life. Terra Nova also protects an area containing remnants of the Beothuk Nation, as well as many of the early pioneer European settlements in the region.

  • Newman's Sound campsite has over 350 pitches but was self-registration-only when I arrived in May. Information about where to pitch was poor. Pitch a tent in the wrong place and you'll pay for electri...  more »

  • Beautiful area, friendly staff, and plenty to do! Great place to bring the kids, especially on special event days like Canada Day.
  • Beautiful views, lots of nature's sights to be seen here. Untouched by man in many areas.
  • Awesome scenery and great fisting. But when I was hiking I saw a KKK crusification in progress, you may want to check that out.
  • We stayed here for 2 nights on 2 different occasions at a campsite at Newman sound. The facilities are really nice and the sites are well maintained. Our second stay was due to being stranded at the washout. It was still just as enjoyable. The only thing I will note is there are only communal fires.
  • It's hard to beat the nostalgia of childhood camping trips, but Parks Canada has done well to keep all the facilities in modern and great shape. Newman Sound and Malady Head campgrounds are very well-equipped, clean, and professionally staffed. Check out Sandy Pond for a swim and lounge on a sandy beach. All sorts of hiking trails are peppered throughout to satisfy your desire for scenic vistas.
