Description

Nice view on ocean with picnic tables and toilet. Busy during the day but very quiet at night.
We were too high for the entry to the Municipal park, so stayed in the paved parking area below the lighthouse. The park attendant in the lighthouse, told us that there was a 3 night maximum stay.

Level gravel spot with great views of the water on both sides of the road. Walking trails along the coast to the edge of town or another up to the lighthouse. Great place to stay put and explore locally or as a base camp for the other attractions around the peninsula. Trash cans and pit toilets available. Good cell service. Restaurant within walking distance. Three night max as noted on sign on the road to this site. A few other campers each night that we stayed.

Awesome stop. Stayed near the bathrooms in the circular parking lot beside Cabot statue. Super quiet and beautiful sunset. One other van there overnight. Bathrooms very clean and convenient, also tons of picnic tables nearby!

We stayed in the parking lot below the Cape Bonavista Lighthouse for 4 nights. The official stay is 3 nights anywhere outside of city limits, but I don’t think there is any enforcement. It was a fabulous spot with great views and it was a great experience. We used the car to experience the whole area.

great place to stay. There was maybe one more vehicle here. 4 bathroom pit houses, very very clean which was great. In the morning very few people were coming to the park. Everyone was more going to the parking lot that was further north of here by the lighthouse.

All alone at this time of year. Not much traffic as the turn around is at the lighthouse a bit farther on.

Good campsite, quite at night, not too cold in the morning. Seemingly abandoned but the 4 wooden little outhouses have staffs keep the toilet paper and liquid soap filled - bring your own water though, and please remember to lock up and shut the toilet lid after use.
No whales, no puffins at this time.

Stayed here 2 nights. We have a small boler type camper and were able to park down in the grassy area. We were able to unhook and leave our camper (with a hitch lock) and our solar panel out while we traveled the area. Two vans in parking lot first night, Alone second night. Lots of locals hiking through, all pleasant to us. Very windy but able to have fire in fire pits. Unbelievable stars, no whale sightings but puffins were on their island in Elliston. Clean pit toilets. Really loved this location, highly recommend it. Please use respectfully.

Great place. Had two quite nights. Perfect place to see millions of stars at night since there is no other light source around except the lighthouse.

Otherwise known as Landfall Municipal Park.

Gravel parking lot will fit a few rigs/vans and is more level than the grassy patch closer to the ocean. We had it all to ourselves. Nice sweeping views of the ocean. Lots of people pull in to watch the sunset, otherwise quiet once dark. This park is more hidden and off the road than the coordinates closer to the lighthouse.

Good spot for a night. Open wifi at nearby lighthouse.

Very busy on a Saturday night, seven other Class B and C Rvs parked. Parking lot is fairly flat and the lower picnic area can be driven to but the way in is grassy and rocky, but the view from there is a spectacular sunset view over the water.
