Nice, quiet and level parking lot in a beautiful setting right next to a sandy beach and walking trails. Great camp spot when visiting this area. There are no restrictions to staying in this parking lot as is common in Newfoundland. Highly recommend to stay here.

Just want to specify that it says no overnight camping for 2023 construction season because of hurricane Fiona damage. Camping may resume 2024. Lets hope! But still nice to visit.

Good place for an overnight waiting the ferry

Great quiet place to camp after getting off ferry at midnight. Morning walkers start arriving at 8 a.m. so it gets busy. We walked the beach in the morning and picked up trash using some great plastic baskets they had on hand. Locals appreciated our efforts.

There is a second entry down the road from this one that has the correct coordinates

Amazing place to stay near the ferry terminal, whether you’re arriving from Sydney on a late ferry, or before boarding an early ferry the following morning. It’s not just convenient… it has a stunning seaside trail that was a highlight of our stay in Newfoundland. Nothing posted discouraging overnight camping (and there are plenty of other notices around beach and hunting rules, so they would have said something if it was an issue). There were 3 other vans in the lot when we stayed. Lovely beach for swimming in warmer weather. Two ponies were grazing the fields. Saw a few bearded seals in the sea while walking the trail. Clean washrooms 24/7 with cold water only. Also a hose with spray nozzle. Very quiet and mostly level gravel lot.

This is the second time we have stayed at this lovely spot. The bathrooms are open and are well stocked with toilet paper and hand soap. There’s a great loop trail to check out that starts ( or ends) at the boardwalk. Be sure to check it out! It was a great thing to do after our long van trip to get here for the ferry trip tomorrow morning.

Not an official campground (as indicated by the title). But a gravel parking area at a beach and trailhead with lots of amenities. Perfect location before or after ferry. Level parking space for approx 8 RVS any size. New red fence, clean stocked flush toilets available, even this late in the year.

Stationnement en gravier près de le place et d’un sentier pédestre. Parfait pour s’arrêter une nuit à l’arrivée à Port aux Basques ou avant le départ vers la Nouvelle-Ecosse. Petit marais près de la ville. Beau coucher de soleil par temps dégagé. Toilettes et eau disponible.

Spot tranquille sur gravier au niveau du marais à deux pas de la plage. Parfait pour une nuit de repos bien méritée après 15h de route et 7h de traversier :)
