  • Beautiful National Park. Lots of great hikes. Brand new (and incredibly clean) washroom facilities in the camp grounds. You could spend multiple days hiking around the expansive park. Staff are friendly, and helpful. If you're traveling through Newfoundland, make a point of stopping at this National Park.
  • While I only had a short hour in Terra Nova National Park, I managed to visit the Visitor Centre and do much more than I was expecting! I highly recommend starting at the Visitor Centre, the staff are super kind and helpful. They also have a Touch Tank, with lots of great things from the sea. I also recommend the short 15 min loop around the Heritage trail, which is mostly boardwalk and gravel, located a short walk from the Visitor Centre!
  • Great place to visit. Amazing scenery. Great water activity in summer time.
  • Been coming here for 19 years and will still continue to. Best place to relax. Many things to do during the day. If you have kids there is endless things for you and them to do. The programs are all family friendly, although some are not wheelchair accessible. Best park iv been too.
  • We passed through this park briefly because we were on a mission to get to Rock Harbour. We did check out the visitor centre to see the displays and play in the interactive touch pool. The views even from the visitor centre were lovely so we can only imagine the other trails and other features that we could have stayed for. The exhibits were informative and the interactive touch pool was interesting for us because we got the chance to see/touch some of the natural species in these cool waters. If you’re looking for something to eat, there is an eatery attached but it’s a small cafeteria so a quick lunch or snack would probably be what you’re getting. We’re still glad we got to stop and when we return, we’ll make the time to stay longer to explore. I think that Gros Morne gets too much attention that many people forget about the other National parks like this one.
