  • The only advantage of this RV park is that it is close to the town is St. John's. Clean 2/5 home 1/5 Wifi no price too high. Everywhere we traveled to Newfoundland we had Wifi. Surprising here is not available.

  • Sites in this campground look great. But if you have a tent they will put you in a big field with no picnic tables and no fire pits. You have to park your car at the top of the field IF you are lucky ...  more »
  • Right in the heart of the capital but seems used by the locals for a place to party. The staff was disinterested to the point of being rude. Noisy from traffic...highway, airport and loud late parties...  more »

  • Great spot to take kids for a day out.
  • Loved the roots and stumps!
  • Beautiful park with an array of trails - some with crushed gravel and very public, others secluded in the woods.
  • Great to have a nature escape inside the city.
  • Great for walks and has a great view of the city.
