Camping

We spent 2 nights in Gros Morne in the northern Shallow Bay campground, and 2 nights in Butterpot Provincial Park near St. John’s. Here are some camping photos:

This site in Gros Morne was probably the nicest I’ve ever had. The sites were separated from the road around the campground by trees so it was really private. Of course camping in a national park is the most expensive camping you’ll likely experience too – there is a day park use rate, per person, per day, on top of the site cost!

We wanted to sample Newfoundland cuisine!

We’re really happy with our new tent. 6 man Funhouse by MEC. It’s square inside and you can stand up in the middle. Room for our big air mattress and Monty’s kennel. 2 doors. Big windows. Mesh top. Decent fly. Screened in vestibule to hide from bugs (if there were any), and a window on the top of the back through the fly. It has the modern poles that are connected inside with the cord and goes up easy. It even came with a metal hammer/puller with the pegs!

Butterpot Provincial Park was the cheapest – $15 per night, no tax. Only every site was gravel, most required you to park your vehicle at the road to walk down to the site, there was no close water source to the site, but we had a really great view! We chose site #1. This campground had no power either. The comfort station in the first loop we were camping in was nice and new and completely run off generator power.
