A good starting point for your explorations of the Woody Point/Trout River/Bonnie Bay Area. Knowledgeable staff, hiking trails, washrooms, gift shop with Newfoundland crafts, clothing, CDs, etc. Don't miss the art exhibit downstairs.

Great location with views over the valley & surrounding area. Staff were pretty enthusiastic & supplied us with an Ipad with audio tracts for the Tablelands walk. The audio certainly added something to the walk and was better than a guided tour in that you...More
