this was a nice, quiet campground, but one must take a 30 km long gravel road (many potholes) to access it; as with all provincial parks, the camp sites are spacious, with a picnic table

Fall colors in Newfoundland. This is another place to watch the river, fall colors, and get off the highway. Watch the fish and wildlife as they enjoy the river and riverbanks. Another spectacular localein New Foundland.

We actually never made it to this park because of the very poor access road....we value our vehicle and trailer suspension. Of course the locals in their pickups drive it like it's asphalt , with the resulting dust cloud another deterrent to going.

Wonderful spot. Well worth the drive on dirt road which, by the way, had less pot holes than some main roads. Get really close to salmon and sea trout jumping up the waterfall. Great experience.

Going to this park requires driving over a dirt road for at least 20 minutes, but it's one of the smoothest dirt roads I've driven over - and we did it in a Ford Focus. The campsites are nice, and most of them are really...More

Went here with family to spend the day and see the salmon jumping. I heard about this location for watching salmon jumping, but it was much better than described. There were salmon jumping constantly and we did not have to wait anytime to see them....More
