Description

We stayed in the parking lot overnight with a spectacular view of the ocean. There are no signs to disallow overnight parking. Very quiet with only the sound of the surf.

Nice little park with two levels of parking overlooking natural arches in the gulf. Although the website says no camping, there are no signs posted in the park. Overnight there were just us and one other van. Beautiful place to view the stars on a clear night!

Report Check-In

Great spot. The photos say it all! One camper van plus us. Lower level parking has great view of arches but large rigs will need to park across spots and there is more parking above. Strong cell signal (Telus 4 bars). Others came for view and sunset then left.

Gorgeous setting. Quiet place to sleep. Killer sunset. We got a beautiful rainbow in the morning.

Bathrooms leave a lot to be desired.

Parc provincial pour usage de jour. Quelques tables de picnic. Nous y avons passé la nuit en Roadtrek. Un résident du secteur vient souvent regarder ce qu’il se passe pendant la soirée avant la noirceur, sans plus. On y a passé une super nuit.

Picnic area and rest stop at The Arches Provincial Park. Area does not have signs informing you there is no overnight camping. Outhouses are old. View is amazing! We have a 36’ rig with truck and was able to stay a night. Good cell signal.

Upper and lower parking lot. The upper lot near the bathrooms seemed more level. Trash is available on lower lot and cell signal was good. There were other campers spending the night as well. The natural stone arches are impressive to see and explore and great for photography. We stayed here on our way to and back from L’Ans aux Meadows.

A nice , flat parking lot with a spectacular view of the Arches. There are a lot of biting flies when we are here.

Beautiful spot!! we had a prefect sunset for late October and a quiet night filled with stars. The toilets are closed now, aswell as the trashbins. Picnic tables made our sunset-dinner perfect.

This place is great, we stayed here a second time on our way back down. Love the arches. Beautiful spot. We had the whole parking lot to ourselves this time. But windy. Could have fit several more big RVs, ours is 30 ft.

Great view, pulled up just as the sun was setting over the ocean. Very interesting rock formations on the beach to explore tomorrow. Nice quiet place to park for the night, with lots of room for our 30 ft motorhome.

Great scenic spot for the night. Lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. Quiet otherwise. Got here later, and two other camper vans we're there. Nice folks.

Looks to good to be true. Fabulous spot.

People come and go to have a look at the Arches. Once dark it’s a quiet spot (other than the sound of the waves) with nice ocean views to spend the night. Like others have said, there are picnic tables, bins and pit toilets. Spent the night with 2 other campers.

Great Spot, and the Arches are beautiful too (even worth a picture stop). quiet, you can hear the cars from the highway but not too much.
there were several other campers here that night (at least 5 in the 2 parking lots), but that's not an issue as it's enough space.

Good spot, with toilet, garbage bins and table for picnic.
We did pich a tent too, no one was there for the night.
Very close to Gros Morne.

Very quiet and dark at night. One other RV here too.

Beautiful spot! There is a lower parking lot and upper parking lot. We stayed in the upper as it was less windy. No signs about no camping etc... Very basic toilets and garbage cans. There is a gate but looks like it hasn't moved in years.

Did not sleep, but stoped for lunch. Looks magical for a night, but timing wasn't good for it today. THE perfect stop on the way North after a full day in Gros Morne.
Picnic tables, pit toilets and garbage cans.

nice place, I had a good night here.
The toilets are closed, maybe just for the season.....
