Like all of our tent camping experiences in Newfoundland parks, this one was also very good. It was along the river, but above it, so you park below and tote your gear up steps to the site. The payoff in privacy is very nice. The pit toilet was nearby. The only problem was really having enough space for our car at the bottom of the site. We have a minivan and it was hard to get it safely tucked in along the side. It is a long drive in and out, but to be expected for good campgrounds.

This was a convenient base for exploring the Bonavista Peninsula. It is a close drive to Trinity and the Sperwink trail.

The sites are set quite far apart from one another and there is good privacy. The lake is lovely. The outhouses were in good shape.

On the downside: there was no potable water while we were there (had to be boiled), the comfort station is not central but instead at the very far end of the campground (a drive or quite long walk), and the sites were difficult for tenting (as the ground was hard packed gravel and impossible to put tent pegs in - we used rocks).

Despite these inconveniences, we would recommend this campground.

Spent 2 nights here. Well equipped spots, running water on our lot was a bonus. It was also "across the path" from the river/stream so I feel like it was quiet and lovely. The spot was was rated "above average" privacy. Comfort stations were amazing for a quick bubble up to start the day. So much to see and do around that area and the camp ground was well situated for our plans around Elliston, Bonavista, Trinity and Port Rexton!!

This campground offers treed sites for all types of campers. The comfort station was super clean. It is accessed by a dirt road with potholes. We stayed here 2 nights.

Very nice campsite with privacy. Some sites had power. Well kept shower house and laundry facilities. Great dark sky location. There was a small brook running behind a lot of the sites. There is lots to do and see in the area. I would highly recommend the Skerwink trail.

We enjoyed this provincial park. It served as a great location to visit the Bonavista and Trinity area. If you use the comfort station you should pick a spot close to it as the park is very spread out for its size. Our trailer is 25 feet and we had tonnes of room to back in. To reach the park, you will have to travel 5 km down a gravel road which can be rough in spots.

The park was a wonderful place to stay and enjoy nature, with reasonable rates, and is suitable for tenting and trailers. It is on a 5.2km gravel road (actually, it is Road 236) which is well-maintained with hard-packed gravel. The park has 57 sites. We tented there, and the best tenting sites for privacy are 49, 50, 51, 11, 13, 15, and 16 (where we stayed). All the sites are flat and well- care for. Some were along the river. The agents who served during our stay were very helpful and friendly. The toilets were clean, with fresh paint and flooring. The comfort station was clean, as well. The park was very quiet during our stay. There is a pond with a boat launch, swimming area, day-use park, and a hiking trail. There is wi-fi provided at two places, although we did not use it. The park is a beautiful and secluded place to stay for relaxation. It is also a good place to stay if you want to explore the area (Skerwink Trail is 5km away towards Port Rexton, Trinity is close, and Bonavista is about 40 minutes away). There is a food store just off the gravel road, north on Highway 230 in Port Rexton that supplies gas and a variety of other necessities. We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful park.

This is the sweetest park in the province. Get a great site here and spend a couple days and you will have a great time. What a beauty of a spot.

Be prepared to drive on an unpaved road to get to this provincial park. It's worth it, though. There were lots of nice sites, some of which are along the water. The comfort station and the outdoor privies were both very clean. Water, recycling, and garbage are available at each site. Laundry facilities are also available. The park has a wifi hot spot; it was great to be able to check messages.

Stayed 1 night while visiting Cape Bona Vista. We happened to be on the north side for dinner and came in from there. Don't! It would be better to drive around and come in from the south. The campsite was very private and quiet. We were close to a pit toilet and that was convenient. The ranger told us to walk the Skerwink trail and it was a complete gem.
