Western Newfoundland is considered a campers’ paradise! If you are searching for adventurous things to do in Newfoundland this summer, why not go camping in Gros Morne National Park? What an awesome place to explore as you will find adventures around every corner!

Take Route 431 to Trout River and enjoy the Trout River Campground. Here you can set up your own tent or stay in luxury in a new oTENTik, which is part tent and part cabin built on a raised wooden floor and come equipped with beds and furniture. When it comes to adventurous things to do in Newfoundland, Trout River offers some of the best opportunities for those adventures. Trout River offers an excellent location to explore the Tablelands, hike to the sea at Green Gardens, get spectacular views of Bonne Bay from Lookout Hills and/or for a whole family adventure visit and explore the many exhibits at the Discovery Centre in Woody Point.
Also on Route 431, find the Lomond Campground with 29 campsites, 4 of which are located near the beach. If your idea of Gros Morne adventures includes fishing, boating and kayaking, then this open, grassy campground is the place for you anytime between mid-May and mid-October. Enjoy the boat launch, playground, showers, swimming, hot water, and fire pits for those nights of wiener roasts and smores treats.
