Nestled in an old growth forest with the Atlantic Ocean lapping the edges, Terra Nova offers some of the best camping in Newfoundland.

With two main campgrounds and seven backcountry locations, you can camp your way. Come tenting, RVing, or even stay in one of Parks Canada’s highly-sought after Ôasis and oTENTiks. Each campground has its own unique features, and each promises a taste of Newfoundland’s great outdoors.
