Parks Canada recognizes that being in nature provides important physical and mental health benefits. Going outdoors, including camping overnight, is a great way to maintain health and wellness, so long as everyone follows physical distancing practices. Please refer to our Covid-19 Camping Tips prior to booking your campsite. Camping will reopen in phases in Gros Morne National Park at reduced occupancy throughout the summer. Diversified camping options such as rustic cabins and oTENTick will remain closed for 2020.
Easily accessed backcountry campsites are open and those interested in backcountry camping must call 709-458-2417 or email email@example.com for information on locations and how to reserve a backcountry campsite.
Gros Morne National Park uses Parks Canada’s national campsite registration service. Initially, camping will be available only to visitors with existing reservations. Visitors who made reservations prior to Parks Canada’s suspension of visitor services in March will get a full refund of all associated fees if a Parks Canada campground is not open during their reservation period; or travel restrictions limit travel. Visitors in this situation will be contacted directly in the coming days and weeks ahead.
