Overview
More
Terra Nova National Park is a place where long fingers of the North Atlantic Ocean touch the island boreal forest of Eastern Newfoundland. Rocky headlands provide shelter from the awesome power of the open ocean. The landscape of the park varies from the rugged cliffs and sheltered inlets of the coastal region to the rolling forested hills, bogs and ponds of the inland. Cultural history abounds in the remnants of sawmills and past human cultures.

Initially we’d planned to book-in to the Malady Head campground but on arrival it seemed really claustrophobic with only small cuttings into the trees for vehicle & van/tent. So we decided that before committing we’d take a look at Newman Sound. Glad we did. The...More

We hiked five of the 10 trails. We loved 4 of them, and truly disliked Dunphy's Pond Trail. It is simply boring and more for bikers than for hikers. Our very favorites are Ochre Hill and Sandy Pond. Both are gorgeous. To our great disappointment...More

It's the first time we opted to explore the area. There was construction so some places were closed. We prefer Gros Morne but I'm glad we checked it out. There are some lovely hikes and ponds. We found Sandy Pond and loved it there! They...More

Newman's Sound campsite has over 350 pitches but was self-registration-only when I arrived in May. Information about where to pitch was poor. Pitch a tent in the wrong place and you'll pay for electricity that you can't use. Large parts of the park were closed...More
