Camping is a great way to experience the wide range of natural landscapes, outdoor activities, and soak up all the natural beauty Newfoundland and Labrador has to offer. There are hundreds of campsites and approximately 80 campgrounds, with varying levels of services and amenities, located throughout the province - from major cities to remote wilderness areas. Travel far into untouched landscapes, or stay close to modern services.

Newfoundland and Labrador has 13 provincial parks that offer camping, 3 national parks, and a multitude of private parks in scenic natural settings.

National Parks

Gros Morne Camping

Gros Morne National Park, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its rare geology and awe-inspiring scenery, has five unique campgrounds, as well as primitive backcountry camping.

Terra Nova National Park, is comprised of four hundred square kilometres of boreal forest and seacoast. Campers have two front-country campgrounds and several primitive camping experiences to choose from.

Provincial Parks

Thirteen of our provincial parks offer camping, but if you don't want to stay overnight they are also perfect places to visit for a day at a time.

It's always a good idea to reserve a campsite before you travel. Campgrounds can fill up quickly on long weekends and during special events and festivals. The non-refundable deposit you put down to secure a site is a small price to pay to avoid disappointment.

To reserve a campsite, please call (877) 214-2267 or go online at www.nlcamping.ca. If you are calling from outside Canada, the international number is (905) 566-2405. If you have a question about reservations, please email nlcamping@gov.nl.ca

Reservations are not available at Chance Cove Provincial Park because there are no formal campsites. Visitors may camp on the parking lot in the picnic area.

Group camping is available at Butter Pot, Barachois Pond, Lockston Path, and Notre Dame parks and there are remote camping sites in Barachois Pond.

There is limited winter camping at Butter Pot and Notre Dame, and at different sites than those used in summer. Free cross-country skiing is available at both.

For more specific information on each of our parks and reserves, visit the Parks and Natural Areas section of the Department of Environment and Conservation website.

Private Parks

There are dozens of private campgrounds throughout the province that offer a range of camping sites in a variety of natural settings and outdoor activities.
