Pippy Park Campgrounds and Trailer Park

*The Campgrounds is currently closed for the 2016 season. 
We will start taking reservations in February 2017.

Camping in the great outdoors in the heart of the City! No wonder the Pippy Park Campgrounds and Trailer Park is so popular with both visitors and locals.

Open May through October, we offer 216 sites: full and unserviced sites are on private treed lots; additional full-service sites are located in an open meadow setting.

The campgrounds are located on Nagles Place, minutes away from the Trans Canada Highway; take exit 46 and follow the signs. We strongly recommend making reservations during the months of July and August.

A few steps from your RV or tent there’s a host of activities and sights awaiting including the Fluvarium, the MUN Botanical Gardens and playgrounds. Interested in bird watching or stretching your legs? Pippy Park has miles of trails to explore. And if you’re camping with us during our Canada Day celebrations, take part in our sponsored Bike Rodeo event.
